    I can barley watch the football. I'd rather watch 2 minute highlights of the goals on YouTube than a full 90 minutes at the moment with Lennon still at the wheel and no fans. Once the Scottish Cup and the old firm games start they'll be the only games worth watching. 4-0 against ST Mirren despite the finesse it's no fun. We need a fresh start.

    Best thing for him is to hope fans are never allowed back in the ground.

    Honestly, I'm questioning if he ever was a Celtic fan?
    Like seriously, he can't have been one of us before he came here. Starting to think he milked the * out of it.
    Because no true Celtic fan disrespects fellow fans as much as he has (as a manager) and no Celtic fan at all down plays the importance of this season.
    No Celtic fan either would stick through this season that only he has to take the blame for.

    I honestly don't think he was a Celtic fan now.
    In the same way many others have came here (or not) and claimed the Celtic link, but the reality was it's just a romantic sound bite for some kudos.

    I think peoples anger towards Lennon is a two fold shock factor, 1. how could we go down hill so badly in a season were it meant so much to us the fans how could a manager of his background not understand that this season was monumental in our history and that all personal pride and ego should have been put aside and the team working together as one to achieve the main goal 10IAR.

    2. I can understand the loses to scum I’ve seen us through the last 50 years playing them off the park and still end up losing 1-0 or some * ref giving them dodgy decisions, nothing has changed in the 50 years I’ve been going to games it’s just more scrutinised now due to better tv coverage and social media. However the results against the other teams Ross county, Livingston etc is disgraceful at best and blatantly incompetent. The one thing I always hung onto watching Celtic was that no matter the result the players would be trying as hard as they could because the understood how important this was to the fans
    This season was for the fans in my opinion we care more about ten in a row than the club, their concern is finance and marketing yes it’s good to make history but if the books balance and a profit is there they still see it as a successful year. We on the other hand have been building up to this season for the last 5 and that’s what is shocking us how badly we capitulated how there isn’t even a challenge, we know they slime will get decisions every game from hun refs we don’t need to endorse there cheating so instead of highlighting there plea he should say nothing.

    Lennon doesn't support the club, he's a Liverpool fan. He never put money into following Celtic in his life.

    When he left as manager in 2014, he said he was sad because he had a "14 year association with the club". That sums him up. It's always been a business relationship with Lennon, hence why he's clinging on now, despite presiding over a season worse than anything offered up by Barnes or Mowbray.

    Lennon supported Liverpool in Lurgan, not Celtic.

    Nor did he take a huge pay cut to come to us, he came to reunite with his mentor, Martin O'Neill.

    If MON was managing the Huns, Lennon would have happily followed.

    Hearing the rumours/story that it was always Liverpool. Which makes reasonable sense.

    Saw a few weeks back someone try claim he took a wage drop to come to us, absolute horse *. The average epl wage back then was 7-9k a week, he was signed from a bang average side at the time as a bang average midfielder (who done great for us), if anything he was on a wage rise coming here and most certainly was better paid by the time he left. Not even accounting for signing on bonus or the new contact, then the coaching job, then the manager job, then the managers job again.

    He's completely used Celtic to his advantage (as do a lot of players), but let this notion of a Celtic man roll and taken the adolation that seemed to come with it.
    He was very happy to be painted as a hate figure by the Huns, as it meant he was adored by Celtic fans. He happily lapped that * up.

    No excuses what so ever for the abuse he got, totally undeserved and criminal at times. What he endured was shocking, but it was never in the name of Celtic or because he was a Celtic man. He let that one build for his own gain.

    Some will quickly tell me I'm wrong and a *, but I think a lot will be waking up to his fraud antics.

    Listening to sportsound (or whatever it's called with tam Cowan) and they've got David Templeton on.

    Two things he's mentioned about training at Hamilton and hearts, both times just makes you think and realise how * poor and * Lennon really is.

    1. Brian rice at Hamilton has them in training every day, the only day they get to have a beer is a Saturday night (If they play on Saturday).
    Contrast that to Lennon, who gave the squad 3 days off after the opening game of the season (and the boli nonsense) and the straight out to Dubai the next day and having a * up during a "training camp".

    2. Talking about shape, Templeton praised his old hearts manager, the Portuguese one, because the shape was drilled in to them so much, they credit that with being prepared for the Scottish cup final they went on to win.
    Contrast to Lennon...what shape? Guys changing it every week and has had about 35 different starting line ups.


    Can't believe David * Templeton understands the basics of football better than Neil Lennon, getting paid to manage Celtic.

    In the not too distant future, Lennon will be on Open Goal with Slaney and the lads scoffing at that "sport science mumbo jumbo" and complaining that "players these days are all snowflakes"

    What’s happening at Liverpool is scaring me a bit n all...you just know he’s going to allude to their situation and him being a victim of the pandemic season like Klopp :52:

    Every day that passes suggests to me that he will be here next season..

    He had a trial with the huns as a youth I’m sure. Or at least got a tour of the stadium.

    Neil Francis Lennon is obviously an undercover sent here to blow the 10. It all makes sense now.

    I don't think you're going against the grain with that admission.

    The amount of way OTT abuse and personal insults aimed at Lennon is beyond acceptable. With immediate effect anyone posting in such a manner will be having a 7 day holiday.

    Thread will remain closed for a short while so everyone gets to see this message.
