    So when the players were away in Dubai, there was obviously close contact between players, Im assuming sharing of rooms etc.
    But isnt it interesting which player werents close to the situation. Sorro and Turnbull for starters. Mc Gregor wasnt close. Laxalt. Rogic.
    Is there a definite divide in the squad between us and them? Your "in" with Lennon, or not.

    The players that were able to play on Monday was an interesting insight IMHO to whats going on behind the scenes.

    At least the snooker can recall Hendry.

    I posted my assumed 13 the other day, if I recall correctly...

    Barkas, Bain, Ajer, Julien, Bitton, Brown, Ntcham, Christie, Edouard, Griffiths, Ajeti, Klimala, Ely.

    Needless to say, you can see the bulk of that group are the old pals act, Lennons preferred players and the ones who have been absolute dug * this year.

    We can't "prove" anything, but if we were all to name the core "Lenny pals" group of players, it would pretty much be this.
    Duffy not being in there is the only surprise!

    Think if we look to Soro, Turnbull, McGregor - those three work hard together and when McGregor has been forced to play with Brown you can see how much he is dragged out of position to cover for Browns lack of ability in his older days.
    As in, I could easily imagine those three taking some personal responsibility to work together and actually do the training aspect of the week, rather than the rest who may have seen it as a jolly.

    Rogic, Laxalt, Frimpong all would be easily associated with wanting to be more of a model professional and working hard on the training ground - as opposed to the stereotype most of us will have of the rest being happy to be pals with Lennon and sit by the pool.


    Obviously none of this is based on facts or science, but anyone who doesn't see the link for the bulk of those 13 is blind as *.

    We seem to be getting the hatred off every other club in Scotland....

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/55644550

    With the increased ‘Restrictions’ just announced... I think football will be next in the firing line... the ‘elite’ exemption can only be run so far ... especially when it’s being abused by those privileged to be part of it..

    We’d hoped to have fans in stadiums by now... when in fact we’re struggling to put a decent team out..

    Cant see it running the full season.

    I definitely think it's time to call a halt to this season. I'm sure everyone would agree .. the safety of individuals must come before anything else ... this was a popular thing/saying from elsewhere last season so I'm sure they will still agree now... especially before we hit the 70 percent of games played mark.

    Need to take it on the chin as it is well deserved. This * is not going to help our relations with any Scottish club in the future.

    Mr Sashman at Stenhousemuir :76::76::76:

    I can only assume that the lower leagues, who I don't believe test players (because they didn't want to because they couldn't afford it). Were shut as a precaution. Some of the Lower League/Juniors sides have been raising concerns about players wellbeing etc. Think it was Dalbeattie Star who made a public statement asking for the games to be halted.

    A simple solution for Mr Sash Bash of Stenhousemuir and any others. Get your players tested on a regular basis, just like the SPFL clubs do. Then you can play away.

    Watch the mouths fall silent.

    I see our under 18s have been furloughed. Can only imagine how far that £250k spent on Dubai could've gone if used elsewhere...

    Everything about the trip is awful. There were red flags before, during and then after. These red flags weren't exactly modest either. You could see them from the ISS. This isn't a 'with hindsight we shouldn't have gone'. This is entitlement. This is stupidity. This is another nail in the coffin of our season that we all thought had no more spaces for nails to be put.

    It's a * disgrace that no one has been held accountable. For anything. For what feels like an eternity.

    Everyone laughing at us the media all the pundits and were being made to just sit and take it board has failed us on so so so many levels this season the chance at history they might think bringing in a new manager will bring us back in droves but i dont think it will there needs to be real change here we wont get it dermot desmond will tell us to shut it and buy season books

    Tbh there only hope is were allowed back in stadiums. Thats not exactly looking likely. Without that i blame nobody for not renewing. Could be a really tight summer as our budget plunges.
