    We can’t drop off? How many times we heard this now. This game will be talked about for weeks now like the game at Ibrox.

    “players have proved they can do it”

    “need to find some consistency now”

    “it’s upto the players to go and show what they can do”

    Kilmarnock were manager-less last night and, if we are completely honest, they didn’t offer much at all. We won’t find it as easy when we come up against teams with a game plan like St Mirren. That’s when the onus is on Lennon to find solutions and he doesn’t have that in his locker.

    According to Lennon's post match interview we've got the Cup to play for this season, absolute magic. Well done Lenny.

    One thing you can be sure of - it won't be Lennon's fault.

    Players are not daft,they know once in a while they have to show they are trying.

    The longer the cup is ‘on hold’ the bigger a fixture headache it causes... especially if euro 2020 goes ahead and there is no room for overrun...

    It is quite likely - and sounds like the SFA are considering it - that the Scottish Cup will just be binned for the season ... or possibly be finished as a pre-season mini tournament (21/22).

    With no sponsor, the decision is entirely within their powers.

    Lennon could have nothing to play for except his own skin.

    That's the problem - its always all about him. If its a bad performance (the usual this season) - its all about how the players let him down and it wasn't his fault at all.

    And when we do have a good performance - we get what we got last night.

    He really believes he's a top class manager - I wonder if he really thinks that any team (other than a really major step down) will offer him a job after he leaves us.

    If you listen to these sentences, what Lenny actually is saying is that we don't need a manager at all because the players do all the work themselves. Bold to say so if you're the manager.

    It is clear there has been something massive happened behind the scenes at the start of the season....we'll probably never get the true story. But you can pinpoint when it happened.......right before the Ferencvaros game. He came out after that embarrassment and dug the knife right into the players...and thats when the rot really set in.

    You do not go from being a good team and you do not go from being a good manager to absolute shocking overnight. He turned the tables last season after losing against the huns at New Year. They hit a massive slump obviously....but we also put an impressive string of wins together to pull away from them and if lockdown hadnt have been called in March we would have went to Ibrox and pumped them that Sunday. Also although the Copenhagen game asked questions about him tactically....we finished top of our Europa league group and beat Lazio twice.

    Im not a Lennon apologist but you cant just lay all the blame on him completely and totally. Whatever has happened behind the scenes has obviously been massive for the team, players and Lennon himself. I do believe he's hanging on too long and needs to go now. But you cant lay all the blame on Lennon alone

    It’s hard to get excited for it after the way the league has gone... but it’s a cup .. and if we are in it.. we should be trying to win it.

    If we do win it then as well as it making sure the Huns DONT win it .. it would be 5 Scottish cups in a row.

    It’ll be a long time before many of us can get over the catastrophic collapse of the club in this most important season... but it doesn’t mean we have to just give up.

    IF the Cup IS shelved this season I won’t be too fussed.. but if it’s on.. then I want us to win it...

    .. just with a new manager.

    Hes never been a good manager. Also I don't think we can underestimate the impact of Duff leaving

    "He still here"
    "Neil Francis Lennon"
    "Fat Alky *"
    "Stealing a wage till hes sacked from his 1 year rolling contract"
    "Popcorn teeth"
    "Something inside so strong "
    "Mental Health problems"
    "* Lennon"

    Etc.etc.etc.etc.

    Somebody PM me when he's finally sacked and save me the hassle of torturing myself day after day.

    Ironically yesterday was groundhog day!

    He will no doubt ride the wave of a win against managerless Kilmarnock to the end of the season.
