Congerton has left the club. Now if we continue to sign poorly who will be to blame?

Will next scout just get all the blame or the manager?

How many managers and scouts do we need to go through before we look at the policy?

While I don't disagree with the sentiment behind your post, I for one, will be glad to see the back of LC. At the same time don't want a PL/ JP double act scenario where the manager perhaps has no impact at all. I am also aware that modern football managers identify positions to strengthen and the recruitment boys/ Ceo's deal with it from there. Interesting times ahead. HH🍀.

This is all lined up for a John park return under Lennon all under Lawwell where he will have total control once again. I don’t think he liked it that Rogers was Desmond’s man and seemed to stand up to him a bit, obviously it’s only my opinion but we could be going back to 2 million pound buys/ gambles and just doing enough to hopefully get the league won. Can anyone on here honestly think Lawwell is going to sign a cheque for 8-9 million for Lennon?

i think peter and neil think we have a squad fit to win 9 iar. this is a very risky ploy. peter won't spend a penny, he has the season book money so he may gamble. please please i hope i am wrong because if this is the ploy we will find us going back years. i know i may get pelters for this but it could be history repeating itslf.

Oh let’s go sign 5 players for 10 million each pay them 60 grand a week a then liquidate like rangers 1872? How do you fancy that? The policy is fine it’s kept us in a good position 8 in a row 8 trophies in a row folk need to relax I can’t go drama queens?

2mill pound buys like under Rodgers John park identified some quality players who did congerton scout?

11 May 2019 21:43:47
John park did pull a few crackers but there was also a lot of poor players, there isn’t a talent spotter who gets everyone right, congerton had a few successes as well. My point was more aimed at Lawwell going back to how it was a few seasons back, in my opinion he won’t give Lennon a big fee to sign either a proven player or someone with massive potential like eddy. The history books tell you as much, that’s why our record buy was Sutton before Rogers came in. Every team is now after these rough diamonds and they are getting harder to find and generally more expensive as teams have cottoned onto our structure so the price inflates . For every good one, we get 4/ 5 bad ones and people will be on here moaning that we need to spend more on quality. Lawells philosophy is have a budget of say 10 million and multiple players on it rather than 2-3 better quality players.

big p we need to skelp the huns. you are the one panicking.

BigP we can't keep mentioning them being liquidated as the big boggie man.
There needs to be slight tweaks to the policy to take us forward but not whole sale changes to it.

12 May 2019 02:21:06
Bigp use your head. They went bust cos they stole tax money and owed back more than they could pay. Theft basically.

Us spending money we have sitting in a bank doesn't make us go bust

Also based on our revenue we could easily pay 40-50k a week wages on a smaller squad of say 21 players propped up by our youths.

Also as I said on other posts look at the rewards Ajax got for changing the policy. Even greater sales and profits.

Even more money in CL. Lawwell has it too safe and thankfully people are noticing.

Ajax didn't really change their policy though did they, they just reverted back to the system that has held them in good stead for years and promoted youth from within. Instead of buying all the players from clubs around them in the league. They are prepared to have a short barren spell knowing they probably won't win much in doing so, but when it comes good they will reap the rewards. Do you think the Celtic support could handle a similar method? I for one don't think they could.

They did change their policy royjac. Well the same policy but higher budgets.

They sold a couple of players and reinvested the money.

They have been playing the similar style they always used for years they were just buying too cheap.

No offence meant here bur The next thing you say tells me you don't really know much about Ajax and just assumed cos their team is young it's all youths.

Only about 4 of their main first team squad players are from their youth. Similar numbers to ours. Minus a few guys who have made a handful of sub apps Mikey Johnstone style

So the rest were bought from teams in their league including frenkie de Jong etc.

So it's not like they have utilised this unstoppable youth system or anything.

What actually happened was they got a couple of good sales and instead of going back to 1-2 mil signings like we do, they reinvested the money.

Bought players for much higher prices which they again sold but this time for much higher prices.

They again reinvest that money and replace their players.

So aye still a selling policy but they actually replace the guys they sell with proper quality now.

They done it cheap the way we did and their team went right downhill. The way we have done, but we just can't see it cos we have no competition and everyone keeps banging on about trebles as if we are watching some of the best football we have seen.

If John Park was really able to walk on water we wouldn’t have got rid of him. Selective retention, he too brought some right junk in too. Anyway, he’s joined Sunderland so it’s a non starter.
