    I watched a couple of the Women's Super League games yesterday and although the football isn't pretty, all 4 teams had shape and were obviously well drilled. They pressed well, counter attacked and defended with a shape and system. In this day and age Lennons approach is utter amatuerish. Teams in the Junior Leagues probably do more work on shape and tactical prep than we do. And he can't see that he's doing anything wrong because it worked the first time around. It's depressing.

    And the game has moved on so much in these ten years.

    Even aside from the fact Lennon filled the squad with "the lads" who he socialised with and got that sort of motivation out of them, right here we see Wilson list a few things that are shocking wrong in modern football

    No shape - yup
    No reviews if opponent's - yup
    Training involved basically just running around - yup.

    So teams press us and play against us, we have no idea how to play against them(wonder why) and they manage to disrupt our "shape" often - since we don't have one, yeah that will happen.
    We have no knowledge of how opponent's are setting up, nor how to change it when it's going wrong for us - well when you don't review more than 15mins of their last match the night before over dinner, yeah that's going to mean you've no idea what to do in the game. Or how to setup.
    Training involved just running around, no tactics, no development. Yup, clubs filled of 20 year olds who want to learn and develop...just make them run the pitch, that'll develop them.


    Literally the three main issues with Lennon and this squad, summed up by Wilson back in November.

    This suggests DD is loathsome to spend money on a big name after Rodgers became too uppity for his and Lawwell's tastes, or that nobody good enough is interested in the post. Lawwell made us look like wasters 2 years ago with his accidentally honest statement.

    Would think it was more because of the protests and DD not wanting it to look like he was letting protesters dictate his decisions. Although agree they probably much prefer someone easy like lennon than a proper manager who wants full control, like BR did.

    There’s a catalogue of things he’s said that show him up to be the Grade A weapon that he is, but personally thought the recent outburst about people not knowing what it’s like regarding the pandemic was the most insulting yet.

    There’s many Celtic fans and others throughout the country who have lost loved ones due to this virus and are struggling to keep a roof over their head, but he’s so self centred that he can’t begin to comprehend that.

    But you don't know what it's like for a well off sportsman, to be able to go and do the job he loves, to not be able to socialise with the new guy from Greece!

    Have you ever been through a pandemic and not made pals with a Greek? Didn't think so!!

    Ego, then. Even though Celtic are financially less lucrative to the shareholders now, than they would be, if the restructuring had started after Ross County (McKay + an open search for a new manager).

    Don’t think they’ll announce he is going until they send out our season ticket renewals.

    The only way this will change is if the fans hold back from renewing season tickets, but we’ve been starved of stadium football and I think that everyone will want to go back there after the last two seasons. 1 to get away from the misses and 2, to voice our frustrations of this season

    But if everyone renews DD will see that as a sign we are still with him and maybe it’s “let’s have another season with Lennon” see if he can bring back harmony.

    Same old, same old. If this happens then DD needs to be removed of stewardship of our club.

    John Collins was top class tonight on BBC Radio Scotland Sportsound talking about the current situation. Gives a great insight to this season and other stuff. Well worth a listen on BBCi player especially from about 6.35pm - 6.50pm

    Ego, negligence etc, as you say everyone could see county game was the latest we should have been making changes, could have been a totally different season if we had.

    Given the league is 100% gone now, its mind boggling we haven't started the rebuild now and given the new guys the luxury of a bedding in period to make sure we hit the ground running next season.

    My opinion, for what it’s worth, is that he should go.
