    Maybe the rest of the squad have split into two / three little cliques, and dont welcome new faces into their little gangs, you know like at primary school.

    "they are lacking a bit of belief at the minute"

    No, their not. The problem is that we are unorganised and have no game plan or other tactics in every * game! For three months he hasn't addressed it so my conclusion is he just hasn't got the skills to do his job as a manager, ergo he has to go!

    The players are * too but that can be fixed with some sort of tactics and game plan in place.

    It's all about why the players are failing to do the job isn't it? It's all psycho babble nonsense. What of Sevco? Sorry it has to be asked/said. They and other teams are going through the same pandemic. Everyone's lives are disrupted by this and in every line of work. We have to pick ourselves up and dust ourselves down to go out and do our job every day. We don't have any other choice.

    If it were simply for the reasons that he's stating I would be absolutely raging with the team. They're a group of privileged young people earning a fortune for kicking a ball. They have advantages in their lives a lot of people will never have. Yes they might be going home to empty flats etc but they have jobs and can afford the technology that can keep them in touch with each other and the outside world at large.

    To say that we have become a car crash through lack of bonding is just ridiculous. He's not saying anything about his own failures and once again he's treating the fans like mugs. Does he seriously think that we're all going to say "poor dears can't socialize with one and other it's no wonder they can't get it together on the pitch". This pandemic eh..........what can you do? What a load of guff. He is so arrogant that I doubt if he's even looking inward.

    It’s actually really concerning that Lennon is trying to paint a picture that there is only a minor problem going on. We have a full team not performing the very basics that are required of them.
    The way we are being treated as fans is disgraceful and it’s making me dislike Lennon more and more that he is basically making out we are being hysterical. Pumped in Europe and 11 points behind the huns. What is it he cannot see?

    Quite simply ...those statements make us an absolute laughing stock.

    I agree. Every other manager in the SPFL must be sitting scratching their heads and having a laugh at that one. He's made himself look stupid and the team look mentally weak! I never underestimate the value of good working relationships but I don't need to meet up or party with my workmates to get on with them or to do my job! The more I think about what he said the madder I get :31: It's desperation to come out with a statement like that. To suggest mental frailty (it's not the first time) is surely going to be self fulfilling. If you're a less than confident individual how is it going to make you feel if your managers best solution is build a lounge :43: If you didn't laugh you would cry :56:

    Roy Keane would be horrific.

    That’s a guy that’s not built to be a football manager. His ego gets in the way.

    They must have communal places at the training ground.

    The canteen, the gym, etc.

    I’ve never heard of a football team needing a lounge.

    He’s embarrassed himself and suggested our team hate each other in the same press conference.

    Self sabotage at its finest.

    Actually I don't know. He's a bit of hard * and has the experience enough to know what to say to put the fear of * into players :56:He wouldn't get away with it in the EPL but he just might get away with it here. Don't forget a lot of the players who come to us are seeking a move up there. In their eyes he has the clout and the experience to either make or break their careers! Maybe just maybe he's what's needed to lift some of them out of their spoilt brat apathy. I know before anyone says it that aggression isn't the modern football way but we can't deny some managers had success with it. A healthy dose of fear and respect goes a long way:56:
    Lennons faults are clear for us all to see but the players have played no small part in this debacle. The one big flaw in my argument is that Keane isn't a manager

    Is the not so talented gentleman still manager of our openly accepting club for mediocre coaching talent?

    The last thing I want to do is socialise with my workmates.
    Doing that would not make me do my job any better..in fact it would more than likely work the opposite way.

    I wonder if they get a free straight jacket on entry to the 'lounge'....Knowing Lawwell there will be an entry fee....

    It's so obvious that these 3 individuals on our coaching staff ain't applying the necessary structure and belief the players require...it's simple a * that looks like it shoehorn's John Kennedy who needs to get a job away from Celtic and go and prove himself.

    This is crying out for a manager who has a team of coaches behind him who he knows and trusts...not 3 individuals and a fukin laptop.

    The more I'm thinking on it I don't think that it's such a bad idea. Desperation requires desperate measures :56:

    Most of this squad have won league titles. *, most of the guys have played for different clubs in different leagues in languages that aren’t their first languages. I’m sure the social aspect of it ain’t that big for the most of them. The only reason Lenny has even spoke about that side of it is cos that’s his only management style...taking the players on the * bonding, and allowing them to eat what they like. Now he can’t do that he’s got * all

    What does he have to do to get the sack?

    Seriously.

    There's been countless times this season where I can't think of many of our managers surviving but he still continues with apparent 'full backing' from those in charge of the club.
