How many goals shall we score? That’s now my overriding thought approaching every game, not just some.
It’s bloody fantastic!
Under Lenny two goals and shut it down seemed the norm, allied with the backwards and sideways it was essentially yawn football.
How times have changed.
Do not, I repeat do not take your eyes off that pitch whilst there’s minutes on the clock for we are literally three passes away from a goal at any given time, and that feeling is priceless. It excites us, so then I wonder if the opposition equally are crapping it?
You can’t look away, there’s movement galore and serious intent,,,intent to get there first, to be a man and not shirk tackles, and to attack attack attack.
Watching this current version of Celtic is a breath of fresh air.
How many are they getting spanked by is one of the most beautiful questions in the world right now.
How many years of improved contract should we offer to our leader and legend in the making?
Three years is nothing, and let’s say he does a Wim creating an almost messiah like aura, some club down south will offer to pay up those two years left no problem and treble the wages while there, being smart realizing this brand of football will entice more supporters which in turn helps pay for the appointment.
Ange is a diamond we took the chance on, and it’s clear he fully gets us also so a long term relationship is on the cards.
Tie him down, asap, which in turn would help spread the feel good factor even more. Maybe strengthen his hand in the transfer market knowing he can buy for the long term.
An Ange extension is a must, and a free PR hit. How many years is the only question.
How many times shall Glasgow Celtic be forced to ‘discover’ a player from the youth ranks before the penny drops?
Right now an(other) accidental discovery in Stephen Walsh is our best defender, looks a good defender already despite his youth, is versatile in that he can cover three of the four positions across the back line, and shows leadership qualities in my humble opinion.We were forced to discover KT, now Welsh, and Ralston could be filed under a must discovery also.
There are three M’s in the wings, Montgomery, Murray, and Moffat who look real quality already. It would be nice if we handled them correctly, introduced slowly but surely, and not be forced to discover them. How many have slipped away because there wasn’t a crisis in that playing position?
This is where a Sporting Director could earn their crust and we could blood our kids from a position of strength with a good enough young enough attitude.
Let’s hope that foresight is within our boardroom.
How many years contract extension should Anthony Ralston be offered?
I will admit right now it shall break my heart at this stage to not see him appear in that hallowed right back berth. Did the beard inspire him? Something did, he’s raised his game two levels and certainly doesn’t deserve to be dropped. In saying that ‘yer man’ just scored a cracker on his alledged goodbye game.
If Anthony is going to be dropped to the bench, perhaps a contract extension would put his mind at ease, would be a great reward for his efforts, and he can genuinely tussle with another for that right back slot.
Morale is on the line, Anthony’s at least, and I for one feel it’s important to get this right. The suppvort are very interested in what becomes of our new cult hero in the making and will be watching closely.
How many times shall it feel that two parts of the trinity are pulling their weight but the other lags?
Yes there’s a right back and striker incoming alledgedly, but this almost the end of August! Our first games are in July.
The PLC needed to be repeatedly and publically out for their dilly-dallied approach by just about the one man of clout who could actually get away with it, the boss. Whilst others step up when needed, the board need prompting to arrive late?
Dom has this window to see how it actually works, but this is it,, he will be judged on the windows to come. If he’s noticed the signing system is archaic for instance needing full board approval which may take three days or more then it’s on him to change things.
Ange has pulled the PLC out of a hole here, not the other way around.
We have a cracking manager who demands proper football, it’s now incumbent upon the PLC to give him what he asks for and not be seen to hinder or hold football operations back.
A Martin style slow lane need never happen again with prudence and intelligent purchasing, if it does there will be backlash.
Should the board fully get their act together this club could be nigh unstoppable, at least it feels that way.
How many years before there’s real thought given to expanding the park? Season tickets sell out annually, with an alleged waiting list, and for the biggest games tickets become very sought after, sometimes impossible to source.
Play football the Celtic way and the masses shall gather wanting to witness it.
There must come a time when stadium rebuild and expansion becomes a real question, she’s getting a little dated now.
Will Dermot and Dom be visionary enough when the time comes and how many should the new Parkhead hold?
How many games will Tam Rogic play this season? I tell you what, I’ve never seen him so slim, looking very ready for games.
He knew the Ange move was coming, announced he would buckle down, and here we are enjoying the benefits. I’m not his biggest fan but he has twinkle toes, and if he keeps this up I will be transformed, always a good thing.
I guess a certain derby game will tell us a lot but a revitalized Tam is a good thing, even I know that.
Tam is in danger of becoming a hero here, I hope he grabs the opportunity more than you know.
He leads us to this title hes a cult figure and legend who might even get a testimonial!
Go on Tom !!!
How many times shall one of our employees be victims of the local referee bias before the club acts? It’s not Anges station and he has enough on his plate to worry about. Where’s Bankier? Ok where’s Dom?
Everyone must realize we approach Ibrox with momentum and the refs could be their big equalizer, and may truly hope to influence this title race via this clash.
The club should be proactive on this one, announcing to all and sundry we need protecting and the refs better afford it.
Even a statement about needing a strong ref come derby day would make me smile, lay down a marker to the whistlers, and show that times are indeed a changing. Its also free good PR, the support would appreciate it, I’m sure the gaffer and players would.
