Can't believe the amount on supporters with their knickers in a twist over Roy Keane potentially being appointed.

So what if he demands 110% from players.

When did it become a crime to raise your voice in a dressing room?

Is football really that soft these days?

McGregor, Turnbull, Soro could flourish under the guidance of someone like Keane and he'd probably force out the deadwood who clearly are not putting the effort in, Griffiths, Ntcham etc.

I'd be happy if he came in and built a team of men like o'neill did rather than stupid wee boys who think they have made it by age 22.

He may be one of 4 or 5 candidates interviewed.

Keane is a winner and will raise the standards throughout the club that Lennon let drop through his tenure.

Whoever gets the job the fans need to get behind them and support the team. Talk of booing a new manager on day one or having eggs at the ready shows you the bratty mentality of so called fans who are probably not old enough to remember the dark days or who only bought season tickets towards the back end of going for 10IAR. I listen to asses like this on a weekly basis in work and its nothing short of embarrassing, some of them you can count on one hand the number of times they've ever been to a game.

Great post. I'm a bit torn about Keane tbh but one thing is certain and that's he's a professional and will expect the same from his players which can't be a bad thing.

Spot on.

I think you are basing that hope rather than past experience.

LAW you need to get a Bovril with JFP 🤣 😂 😆.

26 Mar 2021 15:37:22
I am going to need something stronger than a Bovril. :D.

Del you can’t tell me he is the best man for the job . What’s wrong with wanting the best of the best to be our manager is that not allowed. If Keane wasn’t a Celtic fan no one would want him as his record isn’t great and hasn’t managed in 10 years . If Keane is the man I think it would just be the same as Lennon all over again .

Mick within our reach I don't see many better candidates.

The weight of expectation at Celtic is massive. Keane knows this and will handle it and will slap down the main strem media up here as well. I fear other inexperienced manager would crumble if they didn't get off to a good start.

Its easy for clubs like Arsenal or Gladbach to take punts on coaches like Arteta or Xabi Alonso in the hope of they are the next Pep. They are protected by the income generated by the league they play in and their fans accept mediocrity. This is not an option for Celtic. The expectation for us is to win every game.

Fans dream of managers like Benitez, Martinez or Rangnick but in reality they will never be attracted to manage in Scotland. These guys have recently turned down the likes of AC Milan and Chelsea. What would attract them to the west coast of Scotland?

If its Keane the backroom setup will be key. Maybe Harkin will come in and bring a load of staff from Man City, maybe with Maresca as no.2? Who knows.

Best guys for the job would be coaches with a philosophy and vision. Guys like Marche, Howe. But we won’t attract them to Scotland as they will be waiting on the perfect job. Other managers like Clark don’t really give you that excited feeling. Maybe we do need a Roy Keane in there to shake it up, to be strong with some, to fire off some home truths. He achieved so much in the game as a player and knows his stuff as a pundit. And if MON thinks he would be a great manager for us, I’d go with that rather than an untried youth coach.

I haven’t been to a game doesn’t make me any less of a supporter or that my opinion matters any less than yours del Bhoy we are all Celtic if Keane was any good heed have had a job instead of ten years as a pundit it might work for him at Celtic but I highly doubt.

{Ed007's Note - It doesn't matter how many games you've been to, as long as you're a Celtic supporter - and not LAW or JFP - you're allowed an opinion. That stuff does my nut in, Frank, I've not been to a game for about 8(?) years and nobody's shutting me up lol.}

It’s what makes our club great im from jersey in the Channel Islands my dad is a jock he raised me to love the club and told me what it was to be a Celtic fan we are loved all over the world I have met people from all over the world who love Celtic I even met a guy from chile who could barely speak any English he seen ma top and went nuts he’d never seen a Celtic game but loves Celtic as much as me and all our fans we are one club one history it doesn’t matter who the manager is I will still support my team no matter what.

Frank you seem like a football man and my post isn't aimed at guys like you at all. I'm not just talking about a hoops game mate, I'm talking about any football game. Guys who have never played the game or don't really watch it (any game, league or level) . I know guys who latch on to Celtic as an excuse to go to the pub. They believe everything they see in the rags or on twitter. When I hear them speak I don't value their opinion. That's why I'm on the page most days reading. Apart from one or two posters this site has been quality reading for years. I'm hoping the podcast takes off as I will get involved in that as well where I can around work.

I gave up a season ticket years ago due to financial reasons. I don't go to many games these days either and I don't believe that makes me any less of a fan for not doing so.

By the way, if you look in to Roy Keane you'll see he's not exactly been sitting in the sky studio for the past 10 years. I'm sure in 5 years working with a martin O'Neill he's learned a thing or two.

MON who I love and respect for what he did at Celtic but is outdated as the Nottingham forest fans saw and his spell with Ireland wasn’t exactly great either it should be a forward thinking coach with fresh ideas who can galvinise the players we saw what happened when Lennon called them out and threw them under the bus that style of management doesn’t work in modern football.
