    Default New Footy Season 2017/18 ..How's your team doing?

    New season beckons so a new thread.

    Celtic I see have signed J Hayes from Aberdeen and got a decent draw for Euro qualifiers... nice one there. Gers have now signed Columbian, Alfredo Morelos(20) from the Finnish league side HJK.. Young striker may turn out to be a good investment. We start euros with a team from Luxemburg, so decent and fairly close too.

    I see we have acquired the services of man city academy director, Mark Allen as director of football. Looks to be a good move for us, and hope he brings some great info of available young talent etc.

    Yes Robin, lets hope we can put in a strong challenge this year. The 2 Mexicans are apparently in town again too, this time to stay, so they will be signed shortly I expect. Would like to see some more, but time will tell. Sure a few guys will leave too.

    Good luck in the Europa League, mate (same applies to Robin). It's important that all Scottish clubs do well, to help increase our co-efficient!

    I reckon Hayes will be a good signing. He has a proven goalscoring record in the SPL, and so will defo strengthen our squad, whilst weakening Aberdeen's (our current closest rivals).

    However, I'm still waiting on us making significant multi-million pound signings, bringing in some big names in the process, (by using the cash we got from the Champions League last season, plus 50,000 current season ticket sales), which will significantly strengthen our first team for a proper crack at the CL this season - and with the first qualifying game just around the corner...

    In that respect, from what I can see, there's a distinct lack of activity..... BR and his staff must still be on holiday!!

    yeah, its coming way too quick tbh, and its a bit of a lottery as to whether the team is going to be up and running. Guess its gonna be interesting tho.
    Celtic and their lack of buying? lots of reasons and Im sure the board are thinking up more every week No, I think they will have some guys in their sights and are holding off as per til they see how the wind blows. Of course there is always the risk of missing everyone this way but its not an uncommon way for Celtic to approach things; especially when they are far ahead. Might be in talks with a few players.

    Well another 2 signings'/ 2 Mexicans brings total to 8. It has indeed been a busy window. Getting them all to play together quickly is going to be difficult.
