On a more serious note I think the board are taking the fans for granted and do not realise the extent of the backlash of appointing an unpopular manager will have on season book sales.

This season, a lot of fans forked out their hard earned cash on season tickets, despite having some reservations regarding the board, the manager and the recruitment. However, if we had not been going for 10 in a row, I suspect there would have been less season ticket sales.

Now with the anger and dejection of not achieving 10 in a row, still fresh in our mind. I suspect the wrong managerial appointment will have huge ramifications. The reason I say that is because it will only reinforce what many fans thought at the start of this season. However, this time the carrot of 10 in a row won't be there to entice people.

So hope the board realise just how important getting the right manager in is going to be to get fans back on side.

The problem there LAW if you give up your season ticket someone on the 17000 waiting list will just take yours. I will keep mines and am sure more will be with me than with you.

LAW, who is the 'right' manager?
What appointment can we make that will keep everyone happy?
Even the most unpopular choice will quickly become a fan icon if he's winning games. Every name that has been mentioned so far has drawn comments of approval or rejection from fans on this site alone, never mind the wider fanbase.
It's a big job and it'll need a strong character to fill it and the likes of Keane is certainly that. He has flaws too.
Wilder has drawn equal amounts of praise and criticism. Apparently he's not up to it in the eyes of some.
Steve Clarke is another one. Just this morning he's being lambasted after last night's international yet some fans think he is the obvious choice.
Maresca at Man City's U23's is supposedly a terrific fellow in the eyes of some fans and not experienced in the eyes of others.
Benitez was never an option.
Rangnick gets equal praise and criticism.
Jindřich Tripišovský at Slavia Prague has been mentioned by some fans too but has been dismissed by others.
I could go on and on but there's a common theme running alongside every name that has been mentioned.

What is the right answer? HH.

How many fans do you think will be allowed in the stadium in August?

26 Mar 2021 13:26:53
That is entirely your choice but as history has proven, that waiting list dwindles quick when fans don't like what is getting served up.

Everyone who bought season tickets this season has been short changed with an inferior TV subscription, although in hindsight many of us were glad when the stream didn't work as the football on display was that bad.

Give it a break LAW. We get that you don’t want Keane but you don’t speak for all Celtic fans. I, like you and many others, have dearly missed watching our team and whoever is in the dugout will get my full support whether he was my choice or not. Celtic have always done better when there is unity. What I will say is that we would not see some of the pansies performing as they were last year under Keane. If he’s our man, let’s get behind him.

26 Mar 2021 13:43:03
Only time will tell its everyone's own choice but if we want the club to get better and improve we will need the fans on side.

26 Mar 2021 13:44:18
I can see it being another full season without fans as C.V. ain't going away anytime soon.

Bestybhoy, I agree that there is probably very few managers we could appoint that would keep everyone happy. However, I am seeing very little desire from fans for Keane to be given the job.

26 Mar 2021 14:02:03
LAW, I respect your opinion. I feel your pain. We all do.
Everyone's in the same boat but being so anti-Keane is not the reaction I would go with at this stage. If it is him and he delivers the league or even the Treble next season with good football and an assembled team of hungry and driven players will you still have the same view when the season finishes?
Football fans are a fickle bunch no matter what club they support. I wouldn't say Keane is my first choice but like I've said before if he can keep his positive qualities and control his outbursts then he really could be a masterstroke of an appointment. No one knows so it doesn't help to kill the guy in public when he hasn't even been appointed and may never be.
One thing that has become clear is that the club made a mistake in creating the environment that made Rodgers want to leave. His timing was unpalatable to most fans and it'll live long in our memories but if the rumours are to be believed about why he left then perhaps he did make the right decision. The club do need to up their game now, it's going to be a massive call and all we can do for now is hope that they don't get it wrong. HH.

26 Mar 2021 14:07:04
Law, can I ask who you would realistically want? Martinez isn’t leaving the number 1 ranked team in the world with the euros and World Cup coming up . So a realistic option who would you fancy? As it’s obviously not Keane . I initially didn’t want him and he probably wouldn’t be my first choice but I can definitely see positives in him, especially with him supposedly having desmonds ear, I can see him possibly getting more funds than most .

We should be back into stadium for start of season if this vax works as they say.

26 Mar 2021 14:12:58
3rd wave in the post. Can't see any fans back in August. Hope I'm. wring but the odds are in favour of another utter balls up.

26 Mar 2021 14:14:39
I’m sitting on the fence this time about our next managerial appointment because I had enough to say when I backed Lennon and I admit I got that wrong.

26 Mar 2021 14:45:43
@Quinn, I would like us to go for Roberto De Zerbi if we want attacking football and Diego Martínez Penas if we want a more defensive approach.

26 Mar 2021 14:48:04
Wouldn't say you got it wrong buzz as we did win next 5 trophies. This season has had many contributing faults and no one thing is to blame, from being desperate to claim 9, to players not fit, to players not wanting to be here, recruitment wrong and fans forcing board to dig heels in along with manager not handling it well and not having his own backroom team etc🙄.

26 Mar 2021 15:02:13
@Besty, I am not anti-keane as a person, pundit, player or manager.

I am only against him being our next manager as I do not think he will do well at the job.

The reason I have been so vocal is because I think it will just lead to a repeat of what we had witnessed this season and it is going to cause a lot of friction between the fans and the board.

Like you say we need unity at this time but that unity is only going to happen if Celtic appoint the right manager to get us to unite behind.

26 Mar 2021 15:24:56
I'm not sure about Keane.
But then I'm thinking our fitness level dropped with Lenny and his coaching staff maybe Keane would fix this. A few Celtic players think they are better than they are maybe Keane could sort out the entitled.
I still think we have a gd team but still missing spark and playing together.
