    BR does indeed look a broken man...

    I remember some member replied to my post about getting McGinn in ASAP, no messing about, by calling me some stupid name.

    The facts show that BR wanted him, Broony sang his praises and saw him as a potential heir apparent, yet he slipped away all because Celtic * about.

    He was at Villa when he got a phone call from Celtic, inviting him for talks. Match the wage he said, Celtic wouldn’t. Bye bye he said. Who can blame him.

    Twice they let that boy down. Their actions twice showed that they didn’t want him bad enough. Relying on his affection for the club far too much.

    Now take that news back to BR and Broony and tell me it didn’t affect them both. Both starting to think, well how serious are the club about our ambitions? Where is the cash we just made them?

    I believe that failure was the crack that has led to this sorry state of affairs. I suspect BR has lost faith in the board and indeed, any trust in them to bring him what he wants. He deserves what he wants. Christ, he didn’t seem to ask for much!! After all he has delivered, this is how they have treated him.

    Players see a change in a manager, pick up the less positive vibes and it has definitely shown on the park.

    BRs latest comments sound like an ultimatum. Over to you board, and no more * about!!!

    Slag him all you want but the man epitomizes what a Celtic manager should be. Keeps football in perspective. He’s not perfect, but he gives his all to the club and the community (and delivered a double treble if you forgot). Message to the board; Give this man the backing he deserves. 8203589D-F058-47EE-BE26-1BA776F338E2.png

    Mugged off time and again by a player who wants away, then plays him?

    Player's must be sitting in the dressing room embarrassed for Brendan. Honestly a way to lose the dressing room..

    BR:You always hope to get more goals which would’ve decided the game a bit earlier. It wasn’t to be, but we take the goal, the clean sheet, and we were happy with the three points."

    BR: “It was a good win for us on the back of a European game. I give big credit to the players as it’s never easy.

    BR: "Hamilton are very well organised and I’ve seen that in the last couple of years here. They defend strongly, have fit players that move well and deny you a lot of space in the game, so we knew we were going to have to be patient."

    BR: “We created opportunities but never quite took them and eventually made the breakthrough. Apart from the first 20 seconds we didn’t give away anything, and defensively we looked solid and tight."

    BR on his decision to select, Dedryck Boyata, scorer of the winning goal: “It was pretty easy because of what he showed today - he cruised the game as he’s a top-class player, and we’re not a squad who can do without a player of that quality

    BR: "He made his commitment to the team and he was there for his team-mates today. It was ironic that he got the goal. Everything he did was superb and it was great to have him back in here.

    BR: “It’s not been an easy time for us all in relation to that matter. When we came back from the European game, we had a couple of days where we spoke a lot and knew it was a watershed moment."

    BR: "We knew had to go one of two ways, and the players and staff all came out knowing what direction we wanted to go in. From that, everyone was very focused on having another great season."

    BR: "It was great for him to get the goal. He’s an outstanding footballer, for me, and it was good to have him out there with his team-mates.”

    Anyone Brendan bashing needs to have their skull checked, and if nothing medically wrong - just * off and support Partick or something.

    Man has brought back to back trebles to us with one of the most historic seasons ever and will bring us 10 in a row.

    Have you seen our defence for his tenure, yes the first season was superb. But the some of the displays last season were * honking, and that’s without counting Europe.

    I think Brendan has shown himself to be pure class and the complete opposite of Boyata through all of this. We've had two amazing season under BR and if it wasn't for Boyata we'd likely be on the verge of our 3rd successive CL qualification with everycunt getting excited for another season.

    Now Boyatas * all that, made Brendan look a plum, and got folk moaning and booing at our games. But Brendan doesn't show anger or spit the dummy out, he just gets on with the job and does whats best for the team. Its like Jesus kissing judas and saying he forgives him. Brendan is loyal to the end, even if its to his own detriment.

    These players are lucky to have a manager like Brendan and they should never forget that.

    I agree he's taken Brendan's loyalty and used it against him. That isn't his fault..

    What is his fault is having zero backup options in the squad or targets from his staff, as well as having an inkling or ultimatum with Boyata about what his plan's must've been..

    It's an absolute slap in the face to a guy who has been nothing but great to Boyata and his career..

    Bringing him back in after he's sat out 3 game's, 1 after 2 game's where we were knocked out of the Champion's League qualifiers and then trained and declared his self unfit for the Europa...is just ripping the * out of it and unfortunately, it shows a weak spot in Brendan now in my opinion that he'll let a player so blatantly take the * out of him..

    Can’t see how you can quantify that from a few dissenting posts that are negative about his team selection or certain tactics. This happens at every team with fans. Even under 18 teams. Lawwell has rode a fair few storms. One was the criticism of fans after Dundeegate. The banning of GB because of Motherwell when it was a bunch of coked up kids from from SMV. The board gets its share of flack. The only negativity with BR is getting the players to perform to their best standard when selected. Show me a strong hint of dissatisfaction of BR particularly and wanting of Brendan out the door and I may change my opinion.

    No but there are people calling for his head - he has won every domestic trophy he has entered and its only 3 games into the season. We won't get as high profile or as competent a manager in my lifetime after he goes.

    I thought that after O’Neil but we did.

    Now I’m not saying for one minute to get rid but no one is bigger than the club.

    Rodgers is getting stuck because It’s due to his stubbornness with formations and tactics and the way our defence is.

    Praise him when he is doing well, we all will but he will also be judged when he is messing things up as well.

    He won’t bring us the 10 we don’t bring quality in this window.

    Give me one reason for any of us not to trust him?

    PS Brendan had a far superior CV to MON at the time of hiring. In terms of high profile/caliber of manager, its much more likely we will get someone of MON's ilk than Brendan's.

    The fact that he still overlooks and refuses to play Musonda, despite us struggling in the final 3rd.

    There’s a whole Thread on here even called ‘Criticism of Peter Lawwell’. :56:
    In fact most of us started on about him and the board long before Brendan so what the * you are toking I don’t know.

    P.S why do you keep coming back here with the same pish on every new account?
    Use your imagination ffs.
