New tile, old subfloor

Hi All,

I am replacing a previous tile installtion. The old tile was applied with mastic
(surprise!) and also had that webbing underneath (meaning the old tile came in
a roll). It came up pretty easily, there is still some mastic stuck on the subfloor, which is 1/2" OSB, and there is still the webbing attached in most of the areas. The OSB is also "stained" from the previously applied grout. I purchased some 1/4" CBU thinking to replace the OSB.

Can I just leave the OSB and retile over what is there using thinset or do I
**HAVE** to pull it up? (Causing me mostl likely to go back to the giant orange cube and purchase the 1/2" CBU.) ???

bumping....

I just thought I could rip up the OSB and put down the 1/4" CBU and the use
a 1/4 x 3/8 x 1/4 trowel? New tile is 12x12. Suggestions are welcomed....
