    Strange. Could it be that we don't have team coaching sessions, and that's why our defense sucks? Or is Ajer being paid to say certain lines?

    The extent people like trying to persuade themselves he has had nothing to do with our success and isn’t here on merit is hilarious.

    He’s not really though, is he?

    It’s clearly a prerequisite of the Celtic job that you have this clown forced upon you.

    Very telling that since Lawwell’s wee project was introduced our managers have been Deila, Lennon and Postecoglou - Rodgers being the exception, but he had a large backroom set up and Kennedy appeared to be at the back of it.

    Under Deila, Lennon and now Postecoglou we look unfit, play turgid football and usually only make subs on the 70th minute. Kennedy is the common denominator in that.

    I'm laughing at this but it is a serious issue

    For some reason he is thought of as the second coming by people of influence within the club but what the * has he done?

    All he did under Rodgers was put cones out

    Are you suggesting that Kennedy is forcing managers to make subs later on instead of earlier? How does that work?

    Kris Ajer clearly disagrees and so has every other player that’s talked about him. What evidence do you have that they were lying and that’s all he done?

    Not forcing, but the fact Deila, Lennon and now Postecoglou all do it would suggest it’s likely Kennedy’s thinking - otherwise it’s a * of a coincidence.

    Crazy idea, but perhaps the reason that those managers haven’t felt comfortable going to our bench earlier in games is down to the lack of quality players available to bring on? It’s been very rare for years to have genuine quality on the bench and that’s down to poor forward planning and recruitment.

    Suggesting Kennedy is the reason is, to be quite honest, absolutely laughable.

    Again, the lengths people go to, to find ways to criticise him is mental. On this page alone because of an interview praising him on how good a coach he is we’ve got accusations of an ex-player being paid to say it and then we have accusations he’s making managers not sub players over 5/6/7 years.

    It’s mental.

    You must have difficulties reading.

    But what do you think Kennedy’s role actually entails?

    You seem to take umbrage at the idea of him ‘making’ managers do things, which I assume - given what you’ve now said twice - means advising too.

    What do you think his role entails?

    Got a copy of his position description? Didn't think so.

    Been privy to what Postecoglou may have asked him to do in his position (assuming he has)? Didn't think so.

    Good thread; carry on!
