    Using this site http://www.thecelticwiki.com/m/page/Transfers+-+Players+In and general knowledge am comparing each managers transfer history and building a squad from it. The rules are simple. You can only use players signed, loaned, reloaded, resigned or brought through the academy during their tenure(s).

    Neil lennon (5 years combined tenure)
    Using 3-5-2

    Forster
    Julien vvd elhamed
    Wanyama
    Kayal Ledley
    Forrest elyounoussi
    Hooper Griffith's

    The snake (3 years)
    Using 4-2-3-1

    Bain
    Gamboa benkovic kolo izzaguirre
    Kuoassi benyu
    Sinclair ntcham Roberts
    Eduoard

    Deila (2 years)
    Using 4-2-3-1

    Gordon
    Janko boyata ajer Tierney
    McGregor Armstrong
    GMS Christie Roberts
    Guidetti



    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Naturally Lenny has a more favourable team due to a longer tenure over 2 stints. But doesn't it just show what an eye for a player he seems to have. Lennon's combined team is absolutely unreal. If spotted a striker to the same calibre of eduoard that team is up their with some our best teams.

    By contrast Brendan's team is woeful. Bar ntcham and Roberts that midfield wounded me to type out.

    And finally Deila, I wasn't a big fan when he was here but when you look at that team. He actually built quite a decent team in the making too.

    Anyway love to hear your thought Bhoys and girls. See what teams you can come up with. Again, baring in mind, you got to use only players they acquired or brought through the accademy

    Would of been frightening had Dembele and Edouard got a proper run together, last min sale to Lyon robbed us of seeing something special.

    I don't think he would have put the two in the one team. He wouldn't compromise his style for anything

    He spoke about playing both together for what it's worth.

    He was playing that way full pre-season and in the qualifiers. Also done it a couple of times the year before. He would still play the same style but he was never really married to a formation like Ronny was.

    I'm with you there. Even if he hadn't played a proper 2 I could've seen Eddy on the left.

    He's a slimy * and I'd rather live in denial than think what might have been during his time here

    My Lennon XI:

    Forster
    Lustig* Van Dijk Julien Izzy*
    Wanyama Ledley
    Forrest Rogic Elyounoussi

    Hooper


    *Obviously Lustig and Izzy in their earlier, box-to-box days. Edited out McGregor for Ledley​

    McGregor’s only done 6 months under Lenny, has to be Broony

    I thought Lennon gave him a few early appearances in 2013/14. Just checked there and seen I was wrong....first for everything.

    Aye, he did give him his loan deal, so did kickstart his career

    Deila and Rodgers were obviously much more involved in his development though. For the purposes of this thread, I would list him under Deila.

    It's difficult to assign some players: Deila agreed the deal for Ajer, for instance, but Ajer signed and played under Rodgers.

    He doesn’t say you can only use a player once, just players during their tenure. Ajer can be in both.

    Van Dijk will be in both Lenny’s and Ronny’s. Personally, I’m taking it as how they were under their tenure.
