    I voted yes but as someone said in the first few messages I think it will be unnecessarily closer.

    I convinced myself we would get a top a manager on top wages but working by the clubs model.
    I convinced myself we would pay proper money to back NL when he was given the job in the showers.

    Now I'm thinking if it's even close this season then it's a set up between the top brass of Scottish football to make Scottish football more profolitable again.

    If we don’t strengthen the defence, I have my worries.

    Overall, we still have a better squad. But right now we’re 1 or 2 bad results away from a bit of an implosion, imo.

    The game against the huns is monumental. If we lose and put in another duff performance like we’ve done in the last two visits there, then people need to start taking their threat seriously. If we win, then the whole atmoshpere around the club will be healthier.

    I don't think getting played off the park by Rangers will turn an element of the support. We will hear the same mantra that we lost there twice last year and still won a treble treble.

    The writings on the wall. Shambles of a transfer window and Lennon appearing to be out his depth but worse stubborn. The defence is a shambles and behind them is Bain! The worse Celtic Keeper in my life time.

    We’re always 1 or 2 bad results away from an implosion mate.

    In a sense, but with the mood surrounding the club right now it’s even more of a concern.

    After the week we just had, a bad result against AIK (over two ties) and a defeat against the huns...

    Tomorrow night is huge. We badly need a positive performance and result.

    Which is true.

    Another fact is the league is not going to be decided after 4 games whatever the result at Ibrox.

    What do you mean "The writing is on the wall ?" Have you already conceded the league for this season ?

    I've read some pish on here but someone saying they would take the huns whole team over ours is right up there with the most idiotic things ever posted.

    Where is it these people appear from? Only seems to happen when we are having a hard time too.

    Strange that...

    You what? This is up there as the most ridiculous hyperbole post of all time.

    Not in a sense, we * always are, we’re hysterical as a fanbase.

    I agree with you that we need a positive performance and result though. Saying that, it’ll be ignored if * hits the fan at Ibrox.

    Am I right in saying that the last time we failed to reach either the Europa League or the Champions League group stage was 2010? Which was Lennon's side who went out to Utrecht in a 4-0 drubbing.

    Even Deila took us to the last 32 of the Europa against Inter with that fantastic 3-3 draw.

    Would be unthinkable with our finances to fail to qualify for even the diddy Europa.

    In that same 2010 season we also lost the opening old firm game to Rangers, which was at Parkhead. The world didnt end, but we did go on to lose the title by 1 point.

    Without drastic changes then aye. We know what needs to be done in the transfer window but can anyone seeing the personnel being aquired? Naw the board is sleeping at the wheel. Think we all agree on that.

    Lennon has shown he's tactically lacking but worse he seems to pick his favourites, players like Morgan shouldn't be near that team. We mostly agree on that.

    The Huns had our number 2.5 games last season. They have improved and the rest of the SPL has regressed. Think we all agree on that aswell.

    We all see what's wrong and it won't be sorted so I honestly think saying the writings on the wall is a pretty accurate statement.

    As long as Lennon plays our fit players in their proper positions and at least give some players a chance instead of freezing them out then we will win by at least 10 points. If not, it will be very close.

    At least the Hearts game is at Parkhead this weekend. A trip to Tynecastle after AIK and before AIK and Ibrox would have been *

    Stuff Hearts, get past AIK and beat the huns. Feel-good factor will be back in full flow.

    Need 2-3 good new players to achieve that imo.
