Well EDs Clarke and Howe have been banded about a lot the pages are a wash with the stories i think if its announced who the DOF is i think this will give us a indication who the manager will be what do you think to that?

{Ed007's Note - Perhaps.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Out of these 3 names do u think are going to choose David Webb, Fergal Harkin and Matteo Tognozzi?

{Ed007's Note - None of them.}

I’ve been reading all the possible names suggested today and I noticed nobody has mentioned:

1. Ma Uncle Boab
2. Ma Uncle Pat or
3. Ma Uncle Joe

I think my three names are as likely as yours or anybody else’s I’ve heard.

Just putting them out there.

But maybe we should just wait and see.

All will be revealed in due course.

Man u are linked with the Italian boy so we've no chance.

{Ed007's Note - I think Webb's only being linked because he done an interview on a Celtic podcast - do you think DD would have let that happen if he was planning on appointing him?
Harkin I just don't see it and after speaking to Ed002 I don't think it's realistic and would be a gamble imo.

Who would u have as DOF ED?

{Ed007's Note - Richy, as I've said before I really don't know, the skill set - and specific job requirements at Celtic makes it difficult to know who would be a good or bad appointment:

Typically, a Director of Football, or Sporting Director, will act as a buffer between the Board and the footballing side of the club. He, or she, would typically take responsibility for all footballing aspects of the club – which means the first team and the lower tier teams (although they will have someone who sits as a buffer between him and the ladies and youth teams as well). In all cases the scouting network will report in to the DoF/SP via a Chief Scout and that in many larger clubs is a world-wide operation. In some cases, although typically not in the UK, the Director of Football will look to instilling the same ethos for the game throughout the club’s footballing structure. Examples of this are best seen in the Netherlands with the likes of Marcel Brands when at PSV, Frank Arnesen now at Feyenoord, Martin van Geel and Marc Overmars at Ajax. Similar approaches have been taken in Spain where Txiki Begiristain did the same at Barcelona and is doing the same at Manchester City. Some people, notably Chelsea’s 86 year old chief advisor, Piet de Visser, have claimed that clubs can be far more successful with this approach towards the youngster (it was him who persuaded Mr Abramovich to do what he has with the academy) and he has fought for years to ban all transfers between clubs until players reach the age of 18.
Some coaches do not like working with Sporting Directors, but it is the norm through most of mainland Europe. Some coaches very much want a good Sporting Director to help them out – Mr Mourinho is a good example of that.

Mourinho for boss?

{Ed007's Note - Mourinho HATED living in Manchester and detested the city so I doubt he would fancy rocking up in Glasgow.}

25 Feb 2021 21:15:25
Let's get Charlie Nicholas in as manager and Frank McAvennie and Andy Walker in as his assistant and first team coach.

No wonder he hated Manchester. Worst rubbishhole I've ever lived in and I've been about.

{Ed007's Note - London - his favourite base - isn't much better. Just at the folk that live - or kid on they're still alive - in that big Buckingham palace down there.}

25 Feb 2021 23:13:24
The only English cities I liked were Newcastle and Bristol.

26 Feb 2021 00:01:44
Oh ho eddy wit u getting at there? Kid on they’re still living? 😂.

Maybe he can do it over zoom?
Honestly I've no idea who we will go for. I've only heard of a few of the suggestions because of being on these pages and the live chat. the last few years I've only really been paying attention to Celtic and the Scottish game so my knowledge outwith that isn't what it was say from late 90's to maybe five years ago.

Was Kennedy not going to be made our DoF when Brendan was here?
