One or two rumours from Celtic fans on twitter in the last 30 minutes that Eddie Howe to Celtic off.

Have they been gazumped by us?
If we really want him he'll come to us.

I’d like our next manager to be someone who prioritises improving the centre of our midfield and is looking to move to a system that creates more chances. If Roy stays on I’m hoping he won’t just be talking about centre backs and centre forwards this summer.
He has regularly talked politely about needing to ‘strengthen the group’. He has never been one to loudmouth it and has always toed the party line at clubs. Not like Allardyce who manages by loud hailer and interviews as he bullies his board into submission.

I agree Roy is not one to bully the board. I mean more his talk about targets. He has in the past talked regularly about wanting to add strikers and centre backs when he felt it was an issue. I might be wrong but I don’t think he has talked about creativity or central midfielders. I think that is quite reflective of the direction we have been heading the last couple of years. Keep it tight, hope a forward player is clinical or creates a bit of magic. Not too much talk about creating more opportunities.

If Roy was 10 years younger... You've gotta be joking surely? I can't take another season with Roy in charge.

Dyche would be my choice.

Mcarthur’s prem record assist season by a huge distance was under Hodgson, btw! But look at his stats at Wigan and under Pardew etc. Ranges from 0-3 assists per season.

If Roy doesn’t want creative central midfielders, why did he start Cabaye every week? Furthermore, you say that like it’s an inherently flawed strategy to not rely on central midfielders for creativity. It’s worked for Klopp! Of course we’re not Liverpool, but it’s a strategy that can work, as Roy proved at Fulham. He just needs the players.
Spot on. FWIW I’m not sure how creative Cabaye was for us either, certainly in terms of goals/assists - he was different and more attacking for Newcastle. I don’t see Jairo as creative, being technically good doesn’t make you a creative player! Arguably Milivojevic is our most creative midfielder because although his passing is inconsistent he is capable of passing through the lines.

Equally, you don’t have to create just through the centre of midfield, but apart from the technically limited Schlupp we don’t have anyone who creates in terms of passes or goals/assists in the final third on a regular basis either. Arguably RLC is far more creative than any of our current wide midfielders. Other than the technically limited Schlupp we don’t have any pace to carry us up the pitch - we used to have Townsend (who has now lost his pace) and a younger Zaha. Before that, Bolasie.

We need a massive overhaul in terms of playing personnel or a change in formation/tactics. Roy has done well but even he will need to freshen things up if he stays at the helm next season.

Just looked at couple of their message boards , nothing of note apart from one comment about a chap on twitter who regularly posts just to get attention .
I hope it is right though as i still feel Howe is a good option , but most on Celtic Forums expect announcement in a few days

The odds of another long term Manager any times soon with the challenges ahead next season seems low to me.

We seem to have fallen into a DOF structure due to the FDB fiasco and DF’s timely ‘cup of coffee’ with SP was the extent of the selection process. Despite that, he is now the one that defines the long term I think.

The Manager has to deal with the hand dealt and takes the rap or credit more often than the DOF from what I can see. The hand dealt each year so far has been worse than the year before. We just have to hope whoever is in charge gets the result of the 4 years worth of planning and that it’s been worth the wait.
I’d usually agree with you on the length of time a manager spends at a club. But in all fairness the three I suggested, Howe, Wilder and Dyche have all stuck their jobs out for a long period of time with proven growth and success. I wouldn’t see any of them getting poached anytime soon even with a bit of success. All they need to do is keep us afloat and they’ll be in with a job.

I was thinking more of them being sacked rather than poached which is usually the way Managers leave (Palace and other clubs).

To be clear, I'm not and never have been complaining about success / league position. Just wanting, or looking like we occasionally want to do a goal would be good.

The frustrating thing is we have seen some decent performances, but it is on in every 5 games where we show any intent.
Are you talking about the Jairo who plays for us, I have seen every game he has played and the best was against City in the 0-0 about 3 years ago. He isnt consistant enough and certainly not a creative midfielder or a quarterback! In the Premier, he is average at best, certainly not a game changer, wouldnt miss him if he doesnt play, Schlupp for example is missed if he doesnt play, but I wouldnt regard him as a creative midfielder, just strong on the ball and direct.
Regarding Roy not playing creative players, why were Cabaye and RLC in his teams.

Howe to Celtic and Dyche to Palace in a years time when he is out of contract.

I think Roy will stay on for another year.

Think Howe would fail at Palace but Dyche would be good but can't see us paying £5 Million to get him 1 year early.

Schlupp is missed far more than Jairo in Roy's system, granted. Jairo is coached to ignore his instincts under Roy. Roy doesn't want central midfielders to be on the ball, dictating play.
