    Mate, as I just posted in the other thread, this is definitely Lawwell. The difference in facial expresson between Lawwell and DD today was very noticeable. As you know, I wanted Lenny and yet I'm worried. If they plan to back him and this isn't just a cheap option, why just announce it on the sly like this. It shows total contempt for the fans.

    If Lawwell doesn't back Lenny to build a team that can play his way, he's essentially just hanging him out to dry. As I said in my post in the other thread, for the first time I find myself wanting Lawwell out.

    One thing I don't get though. Why announce that Lennon has been offered the job?

    They always make an announcement when a manager is taking a job and confirmed, not merely when they make an offer. I'm wondering if there is something in that.

    If Lawwell basically hangs Lennon out to dry then he needs hunted, we can all see that squad needs major surgery. If they patch this up and think they can see that mob off because they are skint, then this could easily go south rather quickly.

    Hopefully it'll be like McNeill's second spell. However, I think it's usually a mistake to go back. The biscuit tin is alive and well.

    He was being interviewed by craigan sutton mccoist etc on premier and they were discussing the job and he basically said he'd love the job but it has to be the right offer and he needs to be backed and change the style of play.

    That was about 10 minutes after fulltime

    I love Lennon, but he was sacked from hibs for a reason. I pray he's been offered it on the basis that others turn it down

    Wow this has taken a turn. They probably had other candidates lined up for the role had Lenny failed today.

    Am made up. Make no mistake about it, this team was stuttering towards the end of Brendan's tenure and Lenny got us across the line on all fronts. Now he makes this team his own. And we all know he has a great record for signings. My gut feeling tells me he will be given more money this time round too.

    Am very excited for the future!

    Aye if Lennon turns it down, we'll just have to put up with Rafa or Jose.

    Would you be surprised?

    They were probably thinking if Lennon can get us through the treble the fans won't be too disheartened if he is appointed full time. It will save the club millions etc.

    If Lennon loses he shows he is not capable and a new manager would be needed. However, that would mean spending more money on a new manager and team.

    I can imagine the end of each interview going something like "Thank you for your time, we will let you know if you are successful by the 26th".

    Looking at this season Lennon has not actually done too badly except for the Ranger game. He inherited a team from Rodgers that was not performing and more importantly it was not his team. Add into the mix the team were probably tired with the number of games they have played over the three seasons - something like 190 games compared to Rangers who have probably played 150 games. Add into the mix some of the players would have been away on World Cup duty. Across those three it would be approximately 15 players have featured across all three seasons.

    We all know the squad needs refreshing and I would say Lennon isn't solely to blame for how * the team have played under is temporary tenure.
