Ed007 we would be as well doing away with our youth system and going down a similar route to brentford.

{Ed007's Note - Like most things at the Club, Kev it needs an overhaul. There's no long term planning or planned routes for players to progress to first team. I read (as usual I can't find the fekn thing) one of the youngsters that left saying he had been been told what was going to be happening over the next 2/3 years with him, do we have that kind of thing going on? That's what happens at big clubs, your Ajax's, Barca, Chelsea etc etc have individual plans in place for youngsters to reach the first team if everything goes to plan.}

That’s sad if you guys think that our youth system is belly up. I don’t think we look as if we’ve even got the best youth development system in Scotland.

{Ed007's Note - It's definitely something that needs looked at invested in, for me it's one of the most important things at a club.}

As far as I can tell the main problem is that unless a young player is exceptionally talented or something forces the manager to play them, then the opportunities will be few and far between.

The reason I say that is on account of the pressure on a Celtic manager to win every game. If they don't do that they tend not to last long. So put yourself in the manager's shoes, if you have an older pro who is currently better than a youth player, who do you play, knowing that your job could be on the line?

While that pressure remains I don't expect much to change .

{Ed007's Note - The coaches need to be improving young players, look at Man Utd in the 90s, look at Ajax etc that are consistently producing top quality youth players.
The decision shouldn't be the manager's that's what I'm saying, Ajax, Chelsea, Man City Liverpool etc etc know what players they expect to be in the first team squad in 2 or 3 years time if everything goes to plan regardless of the manager. Look at AVB with Ntcham.
See for our very first podcast I'll ask Ed001 (maybe Ed002 but I doubt that) to talk about this stuff, he knows all about the way young players careers are planned and can pan out.}

I think Celtic will go on a run win all the rest of the games and Lennon will still be in charge next season at the back of this? What do u ED007 and the rest of use think?

{Ed007's Note - If Neil Lennon is manager next season, Richy I will give you my house phone number and you can phone me any time to ask me any thing. I'll even give you advice on your love/sex life 😁

I read that Ntcham story was basically false news. The manager was only unhappy that the signing was done from above. They must have a Pierre Lawell on board.

{Ed007's Note - All Marseilles transfers are done from above and AVB knew that. He was leaving in the summer anyways and as I keep harping on about there needs to be planning that continues regardless of the manager/coach. The so called "big" clubs see the head coach the same way they do players, transient employees that come and go but the long term plan must continue.}

Can I call too? lol😁.

{Ed007's Note - I'll give you my 0898 number... I'm still not sure if you're Kafflic "Jure" or a Proddy "Jure" 😁*

Ed get it hookefmd up a premium rate 'advice' line. Sit back and relax. 🤣.

{Ed007's Note - Seriously though I've mentioned it a few times on the live chat about a podcast and maybe our phone in chat show. I do enough hours on here so putting a couple a week aside for that is really neither here or there.}

04 Feb 2021 12:20:17
Hi what is the name of the podcast u mentioned and when does it start.

{Ed007's Note - We haven't got to a name yet mate but you'll have no probs finding it when we get going 👍

04 Feb 2021 12:47:41

maybe a we can all give a donations to help set it all up. Plenty would be interest as SSB is the pits. What do you think ED and what do you think lads is this a goer let ed know.

{Ed007's Note - Good man, Andy and that's very kind but I couldn't ask you guys to do that. You have no idea how uncomfortable I feel even asking for foodbank money lol.}

If we look on the bright side it could be a new exciting time for our Club.
The club will be making changes from top to bottom and if we get the right people in, Celtic could be on to a winner.
We all knew Celtic would take a new direction next season, no matter the outcome this season.

I’m looking forward to the challenge because it was too easy at times and our younger fans take the club and success for granted.
I tried to educate my kids that our success wouldn’t last forever.

Now I’m looking forward to the challenge and celebrating every goal with my kids.
The way we did years ago when every goal meant something and was important.
The SFA have got their wish by not installing a FFP system and that was to wipe out the gap.
Now it’s game on and I can’t wait to get back to paradise.
