Ange’s Latest Terrifying Message Is That Celtic Has “One Or Two More” Signings To Come.

Image for Ange’s Latest Terrifying Message Is That Celtic Has “One Or Two More” Signings To Come.

You gotta love the Boss and the way he understands that psychology plays a big role in how football seasons unfold.

Last season, what was needed was the sure, steady hand and the constant reminders to our fans and his team that a bad start did not automatically mean that the campaign would be a disaster. He was, of course, right.

When you listen to Ange now, you are left in no doubt that you are hearing the words of a title winning boss, a man who considers his side the best team in the country.

The demands are no longer on attaining consistency, they are towards excellence, towards demonstrating our superiority in the games that it would have been enough, last season, just to win.

After the Aberdeen game, he was angry with some aspects of the performance. After the game at the weekend he swatted aside suggestions from the BBC that we had been “toiling” or “struggling” during the match.

This man is sure of himself and of this team.

He knows what it is capable of and he expects to see it every single week.

Ange also understands power dynamics, and that it is not enough to rest on your laurels and bask in the glory of what you’ve already done.

He will not allow this club to stand still.

Today at the presser he amplified previous statements about wanting perhaps another player; now he is targeting “one or two” more signings. This team continues to evolve.

Most importantly, it continues to evolve in a manner of Ange’s choosing.

But above all, this is a show of force.

This is “look how strong we already are, and guess what? We plan to get even stronger.”

It’s a message to everyone who might fancy their chances of taking something from us that we won’t give up anything – not as much as a point – without someone giving everything to get it.

Over the longer haul of the campaign itself, Ange is telling other clubs that we don’t intend to give up anything at all. We’re doing what champions do. Getting stronger, all the better to add to the honours.

The rest of this league should be terrified.

    The only ones who might be terrified are the huns, the rest of the league already know we are way out in front of them and that there is not a lot that they can do about it. The huns are the only ones that think that they might be able to catch and overtake us, so the message coming from Ange is telling THEM that, what little chance they had of catching us, is just about to become a bit more difficult. They can always respond in kind of course, but their attempts to do that financially, are going to rest solely on their efforts against PSV in the CL play off tie. All their eggs are in one basket and those eggs might be scrambled beyond redemption on Tuesday night. I do like a good omelette!

    • Dando says:

      PSV will win both home & away ties !!!!!!!


    • Tom Foolery says:

      I doubt the deadites will be terrified, Johnny. They are a club and fanbase who have a superiority complex. A club and fanbase who think they are among the ‘euro elite’ and should psv hammer them that complex wont budge an inch…not an inch!

  • Tom Foolery says:

    ‘Terrifying’ really?

  • John Copeland says:

    Look out for the Ibrox feel good stories to come out over the weekend, from the SMSM, to coincide with any Celtic FC good
    news. All in the name of fairness you understand, as we can’t have the media playing favourites,can we! Then we’ll have CSI forensic examination of anything positive coming out of Parkhead. Guaranteed!

  • Johnny Green says:

    Yes, they are shit scared of being continually second best, that is their worst nightmare, despite their swagger and bravado. Their so called superiority complex is fake, deep down they are terrified of the very visible fenian hand.

    • Tom Foolery says:

      Oh wow. It’s almost as if Adler himself graced us with his presence. However a superiority complex passed from one gen to another loses the ‘deep down terror’…it’s diluted by bovine excrement. For example my 11 yr old neighbour actually believes that only Real Madrid can give Rangers a hard game in Europe. He doesn’t proclaim this in order to hide his teams deficiencies…he actually believes it, Why? because he has been fed a diet of bovine exrement all his young life to the point he actually thinks Rangers, are at worst, the second best team in Europe. He can never be reasoned with and he will probably believe that exact same shite when he’s old and grey.

      • Johnny Green says:

        Are you the same Tom Foolery who said that Bernebei might be a good player if he got rid of his thuggishness? who said the Stephen Welsh had no pace and was a baw watcher? who said that both Maeda and Ralston weren’t very good? and said that Hatate got too tired to last a game?

        Well excuse me if I take whatever you say with a pinch of salt TF.

  • Benjamin says:

    What’s really frightening is the quality in depth the squad now has. Hatate, Welsh, and Ideguchi didn’t even make the bench against Ross County. The squad rebuild is over, and any new signings at this point are being made to improve the starting 11, and that is a very scary proposition indeed. Who’s going to be pushed to the bench or out of the lineup entirely when these new signings are made? Kyogo? McGregor? CCV? Juranovic? Abada? Turnbull? Top to bottom, this may already be a stronger squad than the Invincibles group, and I’m trying to wrap my head around the idea that the starting 11 is going to be significantly upgrade in one or two places…

  • JimBhoy says:

    We need to keep the squad fit. We have at least 4 games on surfaces that would not be allowed in top leagues, great levellers as they were once called.

    There will be a couple more of teh squad to move on also. If we pick up another Matt O’Riley I will be happy.

  • Hans says:

    The word “terrified” is doing a lot of heavy lifting here.
