Critical link between manager and scouts needs urgent attention

211

Although the Euros do not start until Friday, players from Gibraltar to Germany are in action tonight as hundreds of the Continent’s best players continue their preparation for the tournament.  Many will be available for sale, just look at the Celtic players that have featured in international friendlies in recent days.

Even if he was already in place, Ange Postecoglou would be unable to travel to games in person but the most important job right now is to scout potential targets across dozens of games.  This process requires the manager to work in tandem with his scouts and technical team.  I doubt any of Celtic’s scouts of technicians have had as much as a Teams call with the new boss.

Despite the time difference and being thousands of miles away, Ange can watch as many games as he could from Glasgow, but scouting is not a solitary operation.  The critical link between him and the rest of the team needs to be established as soon as possible.

  1. I can vouch for BIGBHOY being a Tim, a massive one at that. Perhaps he hasn’t quite phrased his post correctly, but that’s all it will be, not intended whatsoever. He’ll probably be on later to answer those who doubt his allegiance, por cierto.

  2. BURNLEY 78,

     

    I completely agree with you on this.PL has done things wrong,some badly,but Celtics finances is not one of them.

    But he stayed around and forced our club downward in Europe and turnover and brought us to shambles of today

    But he stayed around and forced our club to win 29 trophies during the second most successful spell in our entire history.

     

     

    But he stayed around and forced our club to win 9IAR & FOUR TREBLES.

     

     

    But he stayed around and forced our club to have one unsuccessful season out of ten – shambles? You don’t know the meaning of the word.

     

     

    But he stayed around and forced our club not to follow Rangers FC into suicide by debt. When those such as you were shouting “spend spend spend”

    That’s a bit of an understatement tbh😱

    Spot on Re Murray.

     

     

    He is doing fine now and things have all washed through nicely.

  6. We can surely take it that those who run Celtic do not approve of the actions of these “new breed of fans”, these factions who number few but shout the loudest.

     

     

    We know that ex-managers and ex-players don’t approve, current players certainly don’t…..and the overwhelming majority of the support don’t want any of their boycotts, demos and vitriol aimed at the club.

     

     

    So exactly who are these so-called fans representing? Only themselves. They have always had a political sub-agenda which they mask with whatever current issue surrounding the club that takes their fancy.

     

     

    Pop-up demonstrations, ‘shock you’ banners and a continuous campaign on social media – empty barrels do indeed make most noise. They would bring the club to its knees, yet have the affrontery to question the ‘Celticness’ of anyone( the majority) who disagree with them.

    “That’s a bit of an understatement tbh😱”

     

     

    BIGBHOY comes from good Irish stock and that is no understatement. He has family in Ireland, Dungloe, so the insinuations/comments about him being a Hun are preposterous, and maybe those who said so could have found out a bit more about him rather than jump the gun, which is far too often an occurrence on here of late when someone just disagrees with a post, por cierto.

    Sadly this is the weapon of choice for those on here with closed minds but open mouths.

     

     

    Fingers are stuffed into ears and their ‘crib-sheet’ accusations are spouted.

  10. timmy7_noted on

    JHB.

     

     

    You spout some amount of horse shit.

     

    I would guess you are one of those empty “barrels” ( whatever that means) making all the noise?

  11. Go tell the Spartim on

    Just what is so clever about hoarding money, at one point pre COVID we had £40m (circa) sitting in a bank account ( that’s money generated by us), I dont think everything he did was wrong or ballsed up, but there’s a few big ones in there. The intransigence of the PL. fanbhoys is tiresome. Thankfully he’ll be gone soon and we’ll see how well Dom does

  12. Rolling_Stone on

    A bit sensationalist to say we were going burst in 2004.

     

     

    Also, unsure how you can reference the glass ceiling of Scottish football without addressing the vast renumeration of the CEO.

     

     

    Peter got roughly £2.9m from his basic wage and LTIP scheme payment for a couple of years running – I think 18/19 and 19/20.

     

     

    During this period the CEO of Man United got £3m. I think Man U’s turnover was up around half a billion. Ours was under £90m.

     

     

    PL must be, in relative terms, the best renumerated CEO in European football. How anyone can think that is acceptance is beyond me.

     

     

    So much of the discourse on here completely ignores context and underlying facts.

  13. Really disgusts me that certain sections of the support,are trying to get boycotts of STs.What will it achieve?PL has gone,by all accounts.DD is going nowhere,I hope.Now the attention has turned to Bankier,and unbelievably,to the new CEO.What kind of brainless morons are following our club.The guy has not even taken up his position yet!!!!!!!.

     

    Same fans will be screaming for new signings,wanting Maloney in,wanting big money spent.Wanting a Porsche from their retired parents for their Birthday.Morons.They have,sadly,nothing in common with me.

  14. ROLLING STONE,

     

    Impossible to compare Man U with Celtic.Different planets

     

    .The EPL,gives Man U a global audience,to punt their wares to.I could turn a big profit at Man U.PL was turning in great financial results in a goldfish bowl.I really don’t understand why some are so obsessed with PLs salary.He works for a company.No company will pay you what you are not worth.None.

     

    Anyway,why go on about him,he has gone.

    I am trying to leave personalities out of this.

     

     

    The following is the VideoCelts info quoted by Sydney Tim.

     

     

    Lawwell joined Celtic in October 2003, in the year to 30 June 2004 Celtic recorded turnover of £69m, the new CEO had a pro rata salary of £248,941. In the year to June 2019 Celtic’s turnover reached £83.4m with Lawwell picking up £3.5m.

     

     

    Had the 2004 turnover kept line with inflation by 2019 it would have reached £106.2m.

     

     

    So turnover grew by approx 20% (£69m-£84m) while the CEO’s benefits increased considerably more in percentage terms.

     

     

    Do you think that, in the prevailing operating circumstances in which Celtic FC found itself between 2004-2019, those numbers were/are acceptable in terms of growing our business???

  16. Rolling Stone,

     

    PL must be, in relative terms, the best renumerated CEO in European football. How anyone can think that is acceptance is beyond me.

     

     

    And you know this for a fact how?Like many you put out statements as fact,but like many,you have no facts to back them up.

     

    Give me a rundown on all the big clubs in Europe,what they pay their CEOs.

  17. SQUIRE DANNAHER,,

     

     

    If our business was growing by 20%,I am sure the Board would have been delighted.Hence the salary and bonuses for PL.Why this obsession with someone’s salary.You get paid what the company think you are worth.

     

    End of story.But obviously not for you.We will be hearing about PLs salary,and” Heated driveway”into the next decade.

     

    Being a Celtic Fan,all that matters to me was the shitload of Trophies he delivered as CEO.

  18. FAVOURITE UNCLE on

    But he stayed around and forced our club to win 29 trophies during the second most successful spell in our entire history.

     

     

    SSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII t

  19. when Mr Lawwell started downsizing celtic, did he downsize his remuneration? or season tickets? or even the cost of a pie?

  20. peter lawell did good things for celtic and was successful. no quibbles. His attitude to paying celtic fans has been risible. I understand he was/is following DD orders but ANY true celtic fan would have cut the”old firm” cord in 2012, instead of doing that he began the notorious 5 way and started lying to us. Look at the streets in the last month, this is a direct factor from keeping them going .

     

     

    A DIRECT FACTOR

     

     

    if there was to be civil disorder from the sevco fans in 2012 that would then be for the government to sort out. we could have distanced ourselves.

     

     

    now its still “2 sides of the same coin” same old, same old
