    And win, yes.

    Really not that outrageous.

    On the contrary, it’s perfectly reasonable.

    The fear is that a convincing win over a poor side will prolong the inevitable, and do more harm than good in the long run.

    I would prefer a comfortable win, but I understand the reasoning.

    Personally I would love convincing wins over everyone until we lift the 10. That’s just me though.

    I would love nothing more than to see Neil Lennon lift that 10th title.

    We all would, but most of us recognise that it now seems unlikely.

    I’m one of those people. Hoping we play * though to get him out the door? Utter madness

    Perfectly reasonable to hope we play *...

    It’s official, people have lost the * plot.

    It’s not. Maybe for you, but that’s no surprise.

    I would never want us to lose or drop points. But if there’s a way that we can win and still make a change in management then that would be the ideal outcome. If we win 5-0 and still make a change then even better. Won’t happen though.

    As Vertie said, we’d only be delaying the inevitable.

    How about we win convincingly and go on to win the league?

    I mean call me crazy but that would be more preferable than playing *.

    I doubt he is as unfit as Ajeti was when he was getting starts.

    I'd give him 60 minutes to do some damage.

    I think it’s fairly obvious and goes without saying that’s everyone’s ideal outcome. Point is, plenty of people don’t believe we’re capable of doing that under Lennon - and, given almost every performance this season, it’s an argument not totally without foundation

    He should be/should have been busting a gut in training to sort out his CV fitness recently anyway. There should be no reason he can't start if chosen.

    It’s clearly not everyone’s ideal outcome when people have already said their ideal outcome is to play * tomorrow and scrape a win.

    If that were to happen and a new manager came in and dropped points, are we going to start hoping he plays * too?

    It’s a * idiotic thing to wish for.

    Of course it is, people don’t have it in for Lennon they’re just sick to death of woeful performance after woeful performance. If you said that Lenny’d win every game for the rest of the season and bring us the 10 you don’t think they’d take it? We’re all Celtic supporters and we all want the same thing, with or without Lenny at the helm

    Huge game tomorrow, for many reasons.

    Hoping for a good result before international break, and then perhaps the chance to hit the reset button. Cup semi final aside, we have been abysmal domestically. Rudderless. 3 points in the bag gives some breathing space - anything else and it’s game over.

    That’s not hyperbole either - this rangers side are not the bottling outfit we saw last season. They have a far stronger squad, and a system they have bought in to.

    We need a run of wins - all wins - until reverse fixture start of January.

    I find it strange that he was unfit,week or two later,lenny said he was the fittest he has been in 18 months.He managed 90 mins v hibs then he has back to being not match fit,months later he is still not match fit while we play other strikers that have not been match fit. I think the problem is griff and lenny and not fitness.If that is the sace its even more worrying given at least griff gets goals.

    Would love a 4-5 nil win, cmon the hoops. Need to keep putting points on the board until we can get a settled defence.

    Saying that now that you’ve seen, a lot of people used balde mjallby when talking about Duffy and the type of player we were getting
