As far as my recollection goes, these are the players that Celtic have spent 6mil or more on.
The only debate could possibly be over Christopher Jullien however I thought he was great and he won us a cup whilst denying them one.
So either 100% success rate or 87% if you didn't rate Jullien.
Cue the happiest of happy clappers to tell me how much Larrson, Moravcek, Wanyama and Van Dyke cost.

{Ed007's Note - I'm not entirely sure what point you're trying to make but Neil Lennon's transfer fee was £5.75m.}

Ed, trying to make the point that if we spend decent money there is less of a risk.

{Ed007's Note - the Eyal Berkovic (£5.75m), Rafael Scheidt (£5m) and Albian Ajeti (£5m) deals says otherwise. Transfer fees are irrelevant as there are so many factors that can effect them and imo they are no way to judge how good a player is.
The wages we pay and the money we waste there are a bigger concern to me than the fees we pay for players.}

I think you are saying that you get what you pay for, and it's something The Board seem to have either forgotten or abandoned?
The most recent of these was Jota and as well as signing a top class entertainer, look at the profit Celtic made on that deal.
The current squad has only maybe CCV and MOR that would make any big profit if sold with far too many that we can't even give away.
So the 'business model' seems to be failing below previous years and we are also not producing any 'gems' from our own academy.
Last summer's transfer window has really set us back a lot.

{Ed007's Note - How much profit do you think we would make on CCV? And if you get what you pay for why don't we fill the squad with players as good as MOR and who only cost £1.5m or even better on a free like Dembele was?}

Afternoon All

I've got a Yoga Mat that I got from a charity shop and paid I think it was £1.50.
It's the most comfortable and professional 1 I've ever had.

I've got a Mat that I paid around £35 for and isn't that good.

Just saying.

The other model that seems to be effective is the loan to buy option. CCV, Jota, Edouard and now Bernardo to name a few. The flip side it’s easier to get rid of the players who aren’t good enough.

I’d be quite happy if we get 4 or 5 of those in over the course of the next 48hrs.

What I have been saying Ed, its not what you pay, its about the player, their potential and how and if they fit into your team.

Flo cost 12 mil and he was useless but great at ine time and struggling before he went to them.

We need people out there who know players, know how to spot potential in decent young players who have been or are regularly playing.

Dembele was struggling after a good spell elsewhere and someone saw something in him and he came to us.

We clearly have no one at our club who can do that. It makes me think that is maybe why Ange turned to what he knew, the league he knew.

We maybe need a review of our recruiting and coaching as we are very poor at set pieces, attacking and defending.

{Ed007's Note - Our set-pieces at both ends of the pitch are atrocious.}

Whipping in high bawz for Ter who’s being marked by CampseBhoy if we can get the cross pass the first man that is.

{Ed007's Note - ???

I’m sure I had a post up about concerns of set pieces under Rodgers during his appointment. If you remember back to his last squad we were horrendous then too.

{Ed007's Note - The defensive side of things obviously needs work and arranging during training/tactics but when it comes to the offensive set-pieces surely the players can work on some things themselves, planning & plotting different things to gain the advantage?
Again though, for me, it comes down to that overall lack of physicality that runs throughout the squad like a stick of Blackpool rock.}

29 Jan 2024 20:04:02
We have been lightweight for far too long ED. Even 1 big solid CDM that we’ve all been shouting for to cause unrest in the box would change the whole scope of an offensive and defensive corners!

{Ed007's Note - ??

29 Jan 2024 20:31:02
£1.50 as a percentage of £35 is less than 5%.

I propose giving Brian G £1m which is 5% of what Mark Lawell has pi$$ed against a wall and let Brian sort out our recruitment.

We’ll maybe still be $hite but the players will be the utter bollocks at the downward dog and will have improved flexibility way daen the auld Pontius Pilates.

Brian. ??.

{Ed007's Note - So are we not blaming Daddy Lawwell now? I thought he was running the show..... I can't keep up!}

29 Jan 2024 21:07:00
And Jullien was a big fearty of a CB! Total waste of money!

Ed007 is 100% right the wages we pay are a better indication of how we value our player . I asked last week what was our wages cap?
I got no answer which is typical of our Board who in their “ business secrecy” keep us in dark about everything. I don’t think they are fooling anyone as clubs and agents of players we want to buy know our limits.

I would hope our wages cap was not set in stone as it could be a real deal blocker . If we had a cap at for example £40k per week and if we were to go another £5K, and that would get us a striker we wanted, it might be real stupid to not go the extra £5K .
Relations between our Board and many fans are rarely good, I think that’s because us fans are kept in the dark about too many things . Board have a right to confidentiality, but surely we also have rights.

The below average wages, Celtic are paying ALL of our 9 summer signings proves Celtic downsized.

The question needing answered,
Why did Celtic downsize?

I appreciate your trust in me.

I could go wild in a charity shop or bargain basement with £1m ?
