    Do Celtic want to make an impact in the Champions League (i.e last 16 each season) or are they happy with 3rd (if possible) or just to be there...

    Is it a rebuilding job? Major surgery or just a few players?

    Whose all off in the Summer? Who will go, who do you want to see go and who must we keep!

    Where do Celtic need to strengthen?

    We need a striker. That much is obvious. Even in the SPL games where we've scored 12 in our last two only one goal was from a striker.

    Realistically, finishing 3rd is our best option with the odd 2nd place along the way.

    I spoke to a few Celtic fans during the summer who claimed Stokes would be able to fill Hooper's boots. They must feel like fannies now.

    Lennon tried to get them to play too much football against team that were better at that kind of game. We should have played deeper and allowed team more of the ball and just denied them space.

    We were more dangerous last season with less possession.

    We also wasted our money in the window the dutch guy cannae mind his name and Pukki are worse players than Lassad and Miku never mind Hooper. Although we were never going to be able to buy 2 guys to make a difference in that group.

    The goalie should be off in January , get a new one in now , can't have a new goalie breaking himself in champion league qualifiers . The end of the road for out of contract players sami and Ledley , how can they get 30 grand a week with performances like last night. Plenty of game time for Fisher , Biton and Atajic and get Mcgregor back from Notts county

    Celtic are a feeder club to the big teams.

    That is that.

    Actually agree here. Get a striker and a keeper in January so they are good to go in the summer. Game time to Rogic as well- maybe even Balde. Deserves a try that's for sure

    I think the squad has to many "squad players"... time for a bit of a cull
    Fraser Forster Sell (As Harry says - get another Keeper in soon)
    Adam Matthews Keep
    Emilio Izaguirre Sell - Chuck can be LB along with thsi wee Thistle player
    Efe Ambrose Keep Sell
    Virgil van Dijk Keep

    Nir Biton Keep
    Scott Brown (captain) Keep

    Georgios Samaras: Let go in Summer - sorry, but time for him to move on.
    Anthony Stokes Sell
    Derk Boerrigter Keep
    Kris Commons Keep

    Joe Ledley Sign if possible
    Amido Baldé Keep &#8211; give game time from now
    Tom Rogi&#263; Keep &#8211; give game time from now
    Teemu Pukki Keep &#8211; give game time, in preferred position, from now
    Charlie Mulgrew Keep
    Steven Mouyokolo Dump
    Mikael Lustig Keep
    &#321;ukasz Za&#322;uska Dump
    Beram Kayal Sell

    Bahrudin Ataji&#263; Keep &#8211; give game time from now
    Darnell Fisher Keep &#8211; give game time from now
    Dylan McGeouch Dump
    James Forrest Sell

    Mohamed Bangura Dump
    Tony Watt - Dump

    That is based on Celtic starting to look at bringing in suitable replacements ...

    For SPL I'd rather see us play a mix of experience and NextGen players, that way Celtic can sign/use experienced playersfor Europe.

    What is the difference between sell and dump. ? If dumping is a derogrative term
    do you not think agents of players that Celtic want to sign in future may advise
    their players to give Celtic a miss. Izzy would certainly not be a player I would
    want to sell, he has been one of our top players . Rogic hasn't yet proved he deserves
    more time . Ambrose is important to us and needs to be kept . We need to keep Zaluska
    as we cannot part with our top two keepers at the one time . That would be mad .
    What has Mouyokolo done wrong . Everyone else I would be fully in agreement
    with you, but I would lose no sleep if Ledley went .

    Sell is sell at right price, dump is accept token fees...free up wages.

    Agree 're zaluska...didn't think that through.

    Ledley has had a off-season so far but I think he'll get back to his top form.

    Ledley and sami not committing to the club they have to be sold in January , even if its a million each , then spend the money on Gauld of Dundee utd the type of player our side needs and our strikers might start scoring goals through the chances he creates .I actually believe the strikers are ok , its the system Lennon plays dosn't suit them .

    We won't be able to sell if there not any buyers out for the particular players .
    January is not a good month for buying and selling . The like of Forrest has
    only showed a wee bit ( down Prestwich way ) of form and not too many
    would be looking for him .
