    I don't think they could afford to take 20 for him in the 10 season. At the time it would've been disastrous and daylight robbery..

    If we knew then what we know now.......

    I’m saying if he decided to force it, if he done what Moussa done to force his move, think we’d all be blaming him and saying us signing Ajeti for £5m was us seeing it coming mate.

    We’d still slate * out them, but think that would be the initial reaction.

    My point is he didn’t, he was unfit a lot, think he thought it was all on him to make the moment of magic when we weren’t doing well and it’s been up until mid-December for him to get fit and for him to play freely.

    I don’t think he chucked it, thought he was just not playing well mate.

    Contrast that to Griff, he * chucked it, to an extent that he couldn’t be on the pitch to give obvious criticism to him.

    I agree mate- a just think the guy looked low on confidence and nothing was coming off,people saying he looks like he doesn’t give a * even when he was banging goals for fun last year he still looked like he didn’t give a * - just the guys manner

    Griffiths one of the ones who’s * me off the most this season- fans manager s players all stood by him when he was suffering from mental health issues and rightly so and when he came back it was great to see and everyone respected him, him n Eddy playing together was a breathe of fresh air, a great partnership, Lennon s made a * of a lot of things but I’m sure he would’ve started the season with the 2 of them right from the start of the season, then he comes back after lockdown a stone overweight, people again saying it must be hard for a guy suffering from depression, guy was on open goal, sending all sorts of pish on Twitter and Instagram, in our most important season he basically couldn’t be fked or arsed keeping in shape
    Even when he came on tonight he’s just looks totally done

    Think that was our full plan, and when Griffiths * it, we didn’t have another one. Then Forrest as well.

    Not adapted to any curveball this season, not adapted to the conditions this season. It’s arrogance.

    Forster not coming back is in the same category as well, we had no plan B and signed a guy who had played well against us previously and hoped it would work.

    Listening to Si Ferry interviews and players talking about Lenny as a manager and a just can’t connect that guy to the guy in charge this season.

    See the FaceBook NL lovers are back with a vengeance. This is what happens when we get a couple of half decent results against teams that, in all honesty, we should be getting results against anyway. This is the problem - they don't see the bigger picture and think wee results like that show we are back however, in reality, they only paper over the cracks and prolong the agony

    The average football fan isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, they live for the weekend football win and that's it, they think short term and not 1/5/10 years ahead...either in their own affairs nor for the club they support.

    I think there a two basic types of fans, 1. The here and now fan who takes it week by week up to a season at a time, they comment on the analysis of the performances of players on the field each week he/she is more interested in the last game performance the players in the team now and potential new players, what the manager is or isn’t doing in the near future and of course this year 10 in a row.

    2. Then there are the fans who are interested in the issues in point 1. but also look on the club as a whole, the state the club finances are in, the people who run the club and the message they send out, the way the club projects it’s self to the public, how the club conducts itself in political spheres (SFA, UEFA etc). they also look at long term strategy and succession management. What direction we should be going in as a club and wether private, corporate or fan ownership is best for the club as whole.

    I think that more than most clubs Celtic fc have a very diversified set of fans from across the globe and we are steeped in history that sets us apart we are a boutique club not rich and powerful like Madrid or MUtd but people take notice of us because who we are and what we mean to football.

    I for one would like to see a new manager come in now to settle in for the next few months and assess the situation and then deliver a strategic plan to the new CEO to take the club forward on the field, I am also a big believer that the manager should select the players he wants I or out but let the negotiations (finance) down to the CEO and his team I think in corporate structure this is the best way. I also understand we are a company and need to make money maybe not huge profits but enough to grow steadily each season or every other season.

    Yeah you're absolutely spot on.

    Folk who've been watching football for 15/20/30/40+ years haven't a * clue...

    I wouldn't say they don't have a clue, but a shocking number of supporters just can't see the bigger picture.

    He said: “I think the point Rangers are trying to make is it has to be consistent for all clubs, not just the big two.

    “I think we are really high-profile, the two clubs, and our lot seem to get scrutinised a lot more than other teams. It is trial by TV."


    How about calling out the officials who arent sending their players off during the game and allowing them to play these games with 11 men still on the park, instead of agreeing with the huns bullshit "consistency" claims.

    NEIL LENNON says that Celtic and Rangers are under more scrutiny than other clubs when it comes to the SFA disciplinary procedure due to a ‘trial by TV’, as he echoed the calls from his Ibrox rivals for more consistency across the board.

    The Celtic manager says there is confusion around how the disciplinary system operates these days, which was heightened in his own case by the citation of his striker for simulation recently, a charge which was ultimately deemed not proven on appeal.


    But he says that it is unfair that Celtic and Rangers players seem to be disproportionately charged retrospectively for alleged offences due to the high profile nature of their matches.

    “To be honest I don’t really know how the system works these days,” Lennon said.

    “You get three referees to look at incidents and then say ‘yeah this needs to be looked at’ or ‘that needs to be looked at’.

    “I don’t have an opinion on the Rangers issue [when Kemar Roofe was charged for a tackle on St Johnstone’s Murray Davidson], I had an opinion on Ajeti’s which we felt was folly from our point of view. It proved to be not proven which was always the case, we felt. It certainly wasn’t simulation.


    “I think we are really high profile, the two clubs, and our lot seem to get scrutinised a lot more than other teams.

    “It is the trial by TV. In the main maybe they get the majority of decisions right and I think they got Ajeti’s right [in the end]. I’m not going to comment on the Roofe one because it’s not my place but in the main I think they get them right.

    “People will say that we get away with a lot. And others will say we get punished a lot. I think the point Rangers are trying to make is that it has to be consistent for all the clubs and not just the big two.”

    Neil. Please, just * up mate.

    The fact that he’s even trying to somewhat defend that other mob is criminal.

    They have been, quite rightly, had players been retrospectively banned for shocking acts on the park, and have had a disgustingly amount of challenges and moments of blatant cheating ignored.

    Again, this will be added to his own personal dossier of excuses...
