    Just dont get the palaver with him.

    And for the avoidance of doubt, I was saying that when he was here. Never seen it, oh my days *.

    Same here...very little cutting edge.
    I remember posters on here after the cup final creaming over him...he did nothing in that game and was caught out several times including the penalty.

    Cheeky wee *. Played a season and a half, the majority of it sub par, he has nowhere near enough credit in the bank to be coming out with the “fans can’t expect to win everything” garbage.

    If you look at what he says from the perspective of an outsider or someone who is uninvolved with the club in any way, he makes a seemingly valid point.

    However, a player truly connected to the club though should have known the importance of this season. It seems like Frimpong and most of the squad just didn't get it when they needed to the most.

    I'm not even bitter about his comments or the way he left. It's just disappointing.

    I get what you’re saying, but also from a valid viewpoint irrespective of our club. Just football as a whole. To be the best, you cannot accept losing. And that’s exactly what jeremie has done and said there

    Ex Celtic players that have been interviewed on Open Goal ( the ones that I have seen) always say they struggled when then they moved to teams that weren't expected to win everyweek. They were so used to the winning mentality being at Celtic

    Frimpong would be used of not winning after this season.

    Seems some over the last two years won't have that issue - they all seem to be accepting that you don't and won't be expected to win every game.

    There is a massive difference from being entitled to win, and simply expecting to play as if you want to win.

    A winning mentality is key - of course some games you won't win, but you do not dust it off and say "ah well, maybe next time"
    You get back on the training ground and work your * off to improve yourself to try not let it happen again. It will happen again, of course it will, but the attitude needs to be determination to not let it happen.

    It's almost like too many of the current players have accepted this "get a medal for taking part" mentality.

    Not sticking up for Lennon guy was a * shambles from day 1 and glad to see the back of him, you could say our manager should never have let that seep in and definitely true but over the last 3 season s Liverpool went from champions league finalists, to champions league winners to English premiership winners losing about 2 games and leaving an excellent Man City team 20 points behind, klopp was the manager all through that so guys proved he’s a top drawer manager

    this season okay lost VVD , but got a massive squad plus VVD played when villa pumped them 7-2 but it’s more or less the same players, same manager, yet teams like Burnley Brighton, villa Everton etc all beating them fairly easily and drawing with Fulham s, West Brom s, Newcastle, can hardly buy a goal

    Not sticking up for players but maintaining the standard s of just winning everything 4 seasons on a trot is a massive winning mentality and a lot harder than people think to consistently keep that up, something eventually gives

    * absolutely despise that Liverpool’s downfall has coincided with ours. Gives lennon an out (although you said you’re not sticking up for him so this isn’t necessarily aimed at just you pal). But Liverpool are playing in a much better league. They don’t actually have a huge squad if you look at it. However that’s their own fault for not recruiting. Their defensive backup is * and that’s shown this year. There is nothing comparable with us and their demises at all

    It doesn't give him an out at all. Klopp's Liverpool side were fantastic for years, since 2016 they reached 3 European finals winning 1 CL. They won the league last year and the season before that got to 97 points in 2nd just 1 point behind Man City.

    Lennon piggy backed off a winning Rodgers side and almost * the league in his first full season before the huns bottled it. He failed to qualify for the CL against * for 2 years in a row. We limped out of Europe to an ordinary Copenhagen (our easiest knock over a decade). Then lost the 10 in the worst way imaginable and delivered one of our worst European campaigns in recent history.

    Not being funny but this lad’s social media output since leaving has made me realise how much of a roaster he is, probably just sour grapes though lol.
