The Poste’ always delivers


Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone, prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone, the time has come.  Ange Postecoglou is officially Celtic manager.  It has been a long wait but consistent with Celtic’s typical managerial appointment times (Neil Lennon first got the job on 9 June 2010, despite already being in temp position).

The chapter of our history on Angelos Postecoglou now begins.  I’m only slightly annoyed they didn’t announce it at noon…..  Ange has delivered success beyond expectation wherever he goes.  That will be difficult to achieve at Celtic, where expectations are stratospheric, but hope in our hearts, and all that.

Strap in, it’s going to be a blast.  Best of luck, Ange.

    Comment attributed to Bankier:



    Chairman Ian Bankier also welcomed Ange to the Club, saying: “We are delighted to welcome Ange to Celtic. He is a quality manager with an excellent record and someone whom we believe has the ability, desire and passion to deliver success to our supporters.



    Does anyone believe he has even spoken to the guy?

  2. timmy7_noted on

    At this stage all we can do is hope for the best and wish him all the luck in the world.



    I’d love to know what commitments he has been given on the squad.

  3. Spare us the crap Paul, about late appointments .



    All the best Ange , your going to need it.

  4. So it’s to be Ange- so be it and all the very best to our new manager. Strap in tight – it’s going to be a roller coaster ( apologies to Marc)

  5. Welcome Ange. I wish you and us every success. I’ve never heard of you ( until last week or so, which perhaps is more to do with me than you and your record.) You are another in a long line of people we have signed to different positions in recent years, usually players to be fair, I’ve never heard of – and I feel I’m still reasonably up on the world of football. Some have done very well, most have been average, some have been dire. Good luck and Hail Hail. You have my support.

    As – I think – the first ghuy on this blog to suggest Ange as a managerial prospect back 6months or more (and a new Aussie) I’m feeling delighted for Ange and for us.



    As a soothside soothsayer, I’m now contemplating a fortune telling business and changing my monicker to Darlinda.



    Ignore the pish-on-the-parade types, WELCOME TO PARADISE Ange!! HH

    His granny said he could take the job so he’s brining her.

    No surprise – there’s plenty of negativety round the club which is reflected on here.”


    Although I think it is not helpful, I am perfectly accepting of negativity. My point is about the CONSTANT AND REPETITIVE negativity.


    Just look at the immediate response of some to the announcement that a new manager has been appointed?

    Good luck & welcome to Celtic Ange. Strap yourself in for the journey of your life.



    Now let’s hear about coaching setup.

  10. Don’t know how to feel tbh………….



    I think I’ll feel a bit excited while hiding behind the couch……….



    Howe he starts will tell us a lot.



    Howe’s the meeja treatin’ the news so far?????

  11. New manager appointed.




    Best of luck to him.


    Be interested to learn if he brings his own backroom team or works with what we have.


    A new chapter begins


    We need a joined up approach, from boardroom to dugout.

  12. Now would be a good time to make a statement of intent with regards to the management team he is bringing in.



    More of the same won’t do.

  13. myboysnowatim on

    Uncle Jimmy



    If the board don’t see that “shake head in disbelief”.

  14. Welcome Ange to the best football club in the world. What a privilege.



    He’s going to need the full backing of everyone at Celtic – board, players and the supporters



    Let’s hope he gets it

  15. UNCLE JIMMY on 10TH JUNE 2021 9:26 AM



    If he’s prepared to accept the backroom staff he’s given then we must draw our own conclusions.

  16. GlassTwoThirdsFull on

    Looks like Fonseca to Tottenham. Reckon we could have got him if we had made the effort and shown some ambition. But hey, why bother with that stuff when you can act like a bunch of tea-boys for the City group!

  17. GuyFawkesaforeverhero on

    Memo from Walkabout, Renfield Street – we’re going to need a bigger bar



    Here we go, Ange.

  18. myboysnowatim on

    Despite the cluster….. the board concocted, we just have to get behind the new manager.



    And this bloody board better provide him with all the assistance and players he needs to get the job done.

  19. onenightinlisbon on

    All the best to the new manager. One of the most difficult jobs to be faced in years.

    “Ange has delivered success beyond expectation wherever he goes. That will be difficult to achieve at Celtic, where expectations are stratospheric.”




    Yeah – imagine thinking a club of Celtic’s size and stature might win a single European knockout tie in 17 years!

  21. stpatricksbhoy on

    All the best Ange, roll on getting back into the stadium. Hail Hail.⚽☘☘☘




    Fonseca is going to one of the ESL teams but we could have got him?



    Do you know anything about his time at Roma and why they sacked him?
