I thought Warburton had us playing some great football considering the level of player he had at his disposal.His problem was he had no clue how to defend.I remember watching Pedro's team and its wtf there was no shape to it at all,it was like watching10 outfield players just doing their own thing brutal stuff.
Under Warburton we must have had 50+ passes a game within a couple of yards of the box and 0 within. It was the most frustrating football I'd ever seen us play. No shots, no incisive passes, just tapping it about in front of a back ten followed by a nervy last few minutes! He got us out of the Championship but he also flattered based on his reputation at Brentford.

He said he doesn't like being a goalkeeper. He would rather play outfield, can't remember if he specified a position. It was like his first interview after joining Celtic for £5m.

Just so bizarre, it really does look like he has never played in goals before.

It just shows you need to do a bit more than watch a youtube video and consider the two games he played against your own team before you sign someone. As that seems like all the scouting department at Celtic did.

Now Celtic have 3 of the worst keepers in the league.
I have never seen him make an outstanding save or even a hard to get 50/50 save. Best keeper they ever had IMHO lol

Haha yes his teams did tend to overplay it around the box at times,teams would sit in against us until the last 15 minutes and it was torture.

He was terrific for us for what we brought him in for, ie win the championship and do it in style.
He also overhauled our youth set up as well.

But that was his level, he was found completely wanting at premier league level.

A mate of mine.....
Take this with a huge pinch of salt but a guy I work with who is one of them (who actually gets a lot of info right tbf) told me this morning that big Ange is at war with the board already over transfers and the respect he feels he's being shown (or rather not) and is threatening to chuck it if they don't get the chequebook out ASAP. Apparently he's given them a deadline of the end of next week to start sanctioning some proper established players or he's packing it in.

I’m expecting him to walk as surely he didnt agree to travel half way round the world to then be given the old back room staff , find his best players wanting to leave and then not getting players in quick enough , it would be magnificent if he did and fully blamed the shambles on the board

In fairness, apparently Lennon wasn't allowed his own backroom staff he was basically given Kennedy & co.

In the phone in last year some of the pundits confirmed this and Hugh Keevins said that's on Lennon for not standing up to Lawwell.

Sounds like Ange might be working in the same conditions.

Can any of them still register wildcards for the second leg? Obviously FCM are selling players for some decent fee's, I would imagine they have some players lined up for the players that are or have left that will improve their team.

By the sounds of it, FCM were absolutely stinking last night. I watched them last season against Liverpool, both games and Liverpool were lucky in both games. To then struggle against this Celtic team is just bizarre. Surely the fist advice to their players last night would've been, shoot from anywhere.

I'll admit to watching on a pirate stream...mainly because I'd a bet on the outcome. Trying very hard not to be biased but I didn't think much of either team. It'll be close as to which goes through, doubt if either will get past PSV or Gala.

Was at a mates BBQ last night, he put the game on, they did look no bad up front.
Defence is poor
Never a second yellow for the dane
They can’t last 90 mins with the high press stuff.
If they go a goal down 1st will be interesting
I saw quite a bit of the game as well. One of my son's mates asked him if he could come to our to watch it as he didn't have it on his SKY package.

I must have watched about 75% of it and couldn't believe how bad MJL were.

MJL should have attacked more and they would have probably won it.

Never a second yellow as you say. Mibees a talking to and final warning.

The Danes were rank rotten.

one of the Scottish rags said it was 11.5m (in a small story hidden in a wee box in another story) the other day

Id imagine thats closer too the truth

Even if it is closer to 11m, I’m still astounded they have gotten anywhere near that for a diddy in the last year of his contract. I try to look over at them without blue specs but paper from running recklessly out of defence up the field once or twice a game, he’s hopeless. Can’t defend, can’t win a header and isn’t good at corners. How? Why? Crazy money. There must be better players in the championship that would go for half that.

That figure isn’t true.

I'm very surprised Edouard is sticking around for another season. He looked as if he couldn't be arsed last season so god knows what his effort levels will be like now.

Christie as well as he thinks he's a world beater.

Christie's in the last six months of his contract, so wouldn't be surprised if he's sold on deadline day. Édouard too for that matter, though it'll depend on whether they'd rather move now or run down their contracts. (And on where Celtic end up in terms of CL or EL group stages.)

More than happy for them to claim they are getting more money for their players than they actually are.
In reality all it means is that they have a lot less to spend than their scummy fans think they do, so they will be raging at the board if they don't splash out on new players.
Also, the true figures will be published in their accounts so who gives a fūck really.
