    Now he's become a figure of ridicule, all of his own making, fully backed by the Board of course.


    Lenny dosen't even seem to have any respect for himself, he seems quite happy to continue with this charade.

    He’s an absolute embarrassment.

    Tactically woeful, zero development of players, delusional comments, disrespectful to supporters, a total * of a man.

    A complete disaster, and he speaks as though we should be honoured to have him, * looks like he’s slept rough for a fortnight.

    If he had a shred of decency in his body he’d have * off long ago. Even someone who didn’t claim to support us would have done so. Not this * leech. Deliberately sabotaging us for financial gain.

    Its not negativity ... Its those raw facts that will concern the PLC.. .. and it is what they would do in that situation..

    ... you are thinking only as a supporter and from a supporters point of view. The two viewpoints are vastly different. Both might want to see success on the pitch .. but keeping the books looking good is the main aim for one of those groups.

    Where do you get your view that there is “no real appetite fir change” ? The threads all over this forum plus internet plus radio phone ins (to me anyway) show nothing more than a strong desire for change. Yes it should have been evolution over the last ten years ... but when that fails then revolution is the next best thing.

    As with so much this season, the lack of fans in the stadium and heavy handed ‘stewarding’ at the simplest protest has downplayed the ‘visible’ level of discontent in the supporters. It’s partly why NL and PL are still there now.

    You dont hear either of them talking about the need to have supporters back unlike the daily comments and pleading from them early in the season... Lawwell was lobbying parliament and petitioning the authorities with his plans for fans in grounds every week. All gone a bit quiet that.

    I fear/think you are right about renewals though. A large number will just renew either without hesitation or eventually give in whether there is radical change or not. Lawwell will be hoping for this as well.

    That press conference I watched from him last night was a complete and utter embarrassment. Full of angry, moody and snyde wee comments to each and every question.

    Totally lacking in class and yet again either completely deluded or simply lying through his teeth in terms of deflecting from questions about our current league standings.

    Notice the very first thing he says when he speaks to Lawwell..

    The very first thing that comes out of his mouth is those two discussing "selling player's". Funny that :87:

    I would say you’ve got that the wrong way round mate. I’m not viewing as a supporter at all. If 30%-50% of the annual subscribers don’t renew then a PLC will not sell assets to wait them out. They will remove the CEO and the management that the customers aren’t happy with. That’s me using a common sense business head, not a supporters head.

    With regard to appetite for change, you answered your own question by agreeing with me. We both suspect renewals will still be pretty strong, showing insufficient appetite for serious change.

    Protests might change the manager, but changing the CEO requires financial consequences, and all Celtic supporters really have is renewals. We might get lucky and see modernisation in the club’s leadership, but I suspect we will just see a like for like replacement at best unless as a support we unite and withhold our renewal money.

    Neil Lennon has just masterminded a win against the mighty last placed Hamilton.

    In this newly forged Trumpesque reality he seems to be living in, I'm quite sure he's staring at his phone, waiting for a congratulatory call from the ghost of Jock Stein, this will be preluded by a bullish, myopic and pretentious post game review of how "he told ya so".

    His next presser is going to be * unbearable.

    Anybody up for Lenny Bingo? Fill yer squares:

    "We're back on track now".
    "We analysed recent performances and tweaked *insert bullshit)."
    "I talk to Peter everyday"
    "We will take it one game at a time'
    "We're looking for a RB".

    ... and so on.

    The board must actually be sighing with relief that they don't have to pretend to do a review now.

    Seemingly he’s picked 33 different starting XI’s in 36 games this season.

    I know fine well he will have spoke to other media and no doubt have said something moronic, condescending, hypocritical or aggressive - but this 2 minutes, in isolation is probably the best post match interview he has done all season.
