Any player of quality would not even look at playing in Scotland they will hold out for a move to a better league like, England, Spain, Germany Italy etc. no disrespect to the clubs in the spl but who would want to play ross county, st mirren or hamilton three or four times a season on a freezing cold night. im as gutted as every other supporter on here but where does this rot end. to really have a glimpse of a chance of recruiting any player of calibre we need to do well in the european competitions, that means we need a new board of directors and a manager of quality that will put the necessary funds in and pay the proper wages to entice quality, as I said it is the quality of the Scottish league that is the stumbling block. Do well in Europe and people will sit up and take notice.

Wexfordbhoy spot on playing in Europe is as important for attracting players as it is for the revenue generated hence why failure to progress is a double blow. There is not a lot we can do about the league we’re in and I’d be massively against joining a British league if the opportunity ever arose in any shape or form.

JFP, im all for anything that will put Celtic back on the footballing map, wether it be a european league or whatever. We are a big fish in a small pond and if we get the proper financial backing and have a board and manager that are positive in taking the club forward then the sky is the limit.

{Ed007's Note - I've been saying for years that the board - and a HUGE section of the support - are happy to be the big fish in a small pond. The board & Lawwell like to spin in interviews about us being a Champions League club but they continually fail to act like one.
The Celtic fans that define themselves using the mediocre guy next door as the benchmark will never force improvement or accept the sacrifices needed to move on, being happy to beat them and laugh at them is precisely the complacency that has put the Club in it's current woeful position.}

Well said ED007.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers mate πŸ‘

But playing in scotland gives them a shop window to the "best league in the world " I don't mind a player using us as a platform for a few seasons as long as he gives us his all whilst here.

DRB that window needs to be our unique selling point! πŸ‘.

hey can any of you tims know where I can catch me some Sevconian fish? some redkneck said maybe take a look at the clyde basin in firhills gee that sounds like a nice retreat doesn't it eddy boy?

I would be for a British league, SPL football is very dire and like it was said playing these teams 3 or 4 times at least in the one season is mind numbing.

Hi Ed, I totally agree with your views on the 'big fish in a small pond' mentality ofour board and section of the fans.

Is it possible going forward that the supporters (collectively) could get a seat at the table but more importantly a say in the big decisions i. e. appointing a manager?

I appreciate that DD is the majority shareholder with just over 20% but there are clubs in Scotland and other countries in Europe who operate on this basis or would it be a non starter?

{Ed007's Note - I can't see it happening and if it did can you imagine the egos (@rseholes) that would be pushing themselves forward as our board rep?}

04 Jan 2021 13:53:35
With the scouting network that all the bigger clubs and clubs in bigger leagues have they are always in the shop window anyway, the higher the profile manager you have in a lesser league sure gives you the best chance possible of attracting better quality players?
Just my opinion like as if I were a player and had the choice to work with Roberto Mancini or Neil Lennon I know who I would pick, no disrespect to anyone intended.

04 Jan 2021 14:02:08
Hahahahaha, I was going to propose we put you foward Ed? (LOL)

Imagine sitting at the big table and turning to Terry Thomas (DD) and telling him what the supporters really think?

{Ed007's Note - Terry Thomas πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ seriously though I would think anyone who got the job, once they have the blazer and the expenses account, mixing with the bigwigs all across Europe etc etc they would see themselves as some kind of folkhero to us plebs and turn into a complete arrogant moron - you know the type, has thousands of followers on Twitter but see themselves as too good to follow anyone back.
Oh and I'm arrogant enough 😁

04 Jan 2021 15:09:59
Oh yes, I know the type.

{Ed007's Note - πŸ‘

04 Jan 2021 15:20:17
ah no your type tae.

{Ed007's Note - 😘
