Looking likely now. Just hope he has been working away in the background. As I said previously I dont buy into the hype surrounding him, but he cant be produce any worse than what we have been served up this season.

He took a side from near extinction to the Premier League and sustained them there for many seasons playing attacking possession football on a shoe string budget. He is the best young manager in British football. The same person has no doubt been been preparing for a task this size for many seasons now, as it was when not if a large club came calling.

Exactly the type of manager that I feel Celtic need.

He took them to EPL after breaking FFP rules and ultimately relegated them. Also responsible for some expensive flops, so to say he done all on a shoe string isnt accurate. His tenure at Burnley and lack of European experience is also a concern. But as said previously, he seems like a studious coach and he cant do any worse than this seasons incumbents.

What flops? As Solanke is the one mentioned usually, who is one the top scorers in Championship this year. Howe was right on him. 
There is a hell lot more success stories than flops, which can’t be said for Celtic the past number of transfer windows. The Premier League is much harder in comparison to Europe. 
The main issue with Howe is if he’s supported. He can’t work miracles, he needs investment and his own team. John Kennedy has to go.

Solanke was signed for the Premiership, a £19m striker doing well in the Championship. Jordan Ibe another flop. Danjuma similar to Solanke.

Regardless of how you see the Prem vs Europe, they are two different competitions and the fact of the matter is, he has no experience in Europe. 

Tony Mowbray had a similar CV. Nice attacking football, won promotion to the Prem and we know how that turned out. Been able to handle the pressure of expecting to win every week, is a different ball game to avoiding the drop and being happy with draws. 

Im sure he will have financial backing. Cant see him committing otherwise. 

I'll be renewing my season ticket regardless so hopefully he can provide some entertaining football.

Really fancy the lesser greens to beat the Originals today. The Originals will field a second string side, as they have a cup final next week.

Interesting that Sutton said today that DD didnt want him at Celtic in the summer of 2000 but MON was powerful enough to get his own way. He said that Howe (or whoever) needs to get the same authority over transfer decisions.

Gordon Strachan is a pundit on Hibs TV.

I suppose he is a Hibs fan.

Why was the Edouard goal ruled not valid?

Delighted that season is over
Worst in memory, down there with Macari/Brady

Yes, an almost entirely second string Hibs side, probably only one or two cup final starters at most out of that eleven. And Celtic still couldn't score against them.

John Kennedy was on the shortlist for the Hibs manager role not too long ago. They had a lucky escape there.
