‘Get rid of Ange’ ‘Sack the board’ ‘Big Ange out of his depth big time’ Heat is on Postecoglou as fans mood turns

The pressure is mounting on Ange Postecoglou as the public face of a badly failing Celtic side.

A home draw against Dundee United means that it is 11 points dropped from seven SPFL matches with the early season excitement over Ange-ball as good as extinguished before Kevin Clancy blew the final whistle on today’s 1-1 draw,

A lengthening injury list provides some mitigating circumstances but there was no plastic pitch today with Dundee United worthy of their point even if Celtic can point to three efforts off the woodwork.

Whether he likes it or not Postecoglou is the public face of Celtic, he opted to take up an offer from a board of directors who seem more interested in producing profit from a transfer window than putting a team on the park capable of winning football matches.

After a long courtship with Eddie Howe that proved to be fruitless Celtic turned to Asia and a man that hadn’t been near European football for a decade.

Rather than back Postecoglou up he was sent into Champions League qualifiers with the addition of a teenage winger from Israel.

Liel Abada scored today and has looked good value but after years of neglect Postecoglou is holding the baby and responsible for results on a weekly basis.

The CEO that recruited him has retired, the one that he worked with through the transfer window has stepped down leaving Postecoglou with a Chairman that thinks finishing second in a two horse race is one of the highlights of the year.

Howe didn’t want his reputation tarnished by going to Celtic, now Postecoglou has the task of sorting out a multitude of failings with a squad ruddled by injury and looking for some magic from players that have still to find their feet let alone deliver success.

    Howe ain’t got a reputation. That died when he shat out of managing a big team. Where is he now?
    Ajeti is fckn mince cannae read the game. Team plays well then I don’t know if anyone else notices, they all seem to switch positions and dont know what the fck is going on.

    Ange did not have a fit first 11 to pick from . He needed far more backing before the window shut . This team will come good , especially when we have a settled first 11

    Some utter garbage comments on here. This player out that player out, nobody can go anywhere the window is closed, we have to many top players out injured six points is bad but not out of reach. The huns are crap but getting results, this is what years of down sizing to save the blue pound gets you, well done Peter take a bow. We have not got a strong team with some heart midfield is light weight once injuries clear we will better but that just might be to late.

    What a load of me mince, get a grip!
    When Ange took Ofer we all said it could take two years for a solid rebuild. Now we want to give him two weeks? Give the guy a break and F off! Many first team players also out.

  • Peter cassidy says:

    Ange will be gone by November if we drop anymore points why he did not bring in his own coaching staff will be his undoing that lot should have been chased as soon as he was appointed can he pull us round not sure still early but confidence is low at present and could get even lower come thursday what a mess as that @anker bankier said we are in safe hands don’t know what safe hands he is talking about more like very slippery hands at present.

  • GM says:

    Ryan Jackson’s Twitter profile is less than a month old and at quick glance (something a journalist/reporter should do at least) is overly critical of all things Celtic, hardly a compelling endorsement of the mood.

  • Gordon Joyce says:

    That was not the feelings at the start of the season when we were playing great football “third best passing flowing football in Europe” FACT!!! Everyone happy then ..Nothing wrong with Ange..all his signings playing great straight from the start..very bad luck with all the injury’s at one time..don’t get me wrong..notstar ..soro.mca.get rid..apart ..keep the faith ?

  • Dermot McGlone says:

    Really, can’t believe I’m reading this. A manager of proven ability thrown in to an absolute shambles and still comes out with a team playing well. He has been very unlucky with a lot of injuries to central players. The draw at the weekend proves he has a threadbare squad not that he is a bad manager. He needs at least another window and the rest of the season.
    The board has had multiple failings. Not the manager. Give it time and I think you will have the same opinion of Ange that you had a few weeks ago.
