    Seriously, if we had appointed the coke dealer before Livingston, we'd probably be top of the league by now.

    He genuinely would have done a better job.

    There's an element in these loaded questions about next season, where clearly he's not gonna come out and say "no I'm not the guy"
    But he's * at it with how he answers.
    Instead of pretending he's a good manager he needs to get back to "we need to see this season out first, then it's up to the board to decide what's next"

    And stop being an utter dispicable human being trolling the fans and laughing his way through this.

    I genuinely think that the fans are now so stunned and numbed by what has happened that they wouldn't be able to find the energy to "do their daily exercise" and, anyway, those feckers on the board wouldn't be interested in our exercise routines no matter how intense they were

    Honestly don’t know so much, amazing what a good manager can do, can remember when John barnes got sacked, the Huns media saying we were at least 5 years behind rangers ( a far better rangers than sevco), Martin O’Neill came in with a his vision of what he wanted , the way he wanted his team to play and a good eye for the type of players he needed for this to work, within 1 season we romped the league and went on to win a treble, a good manager can do that

    I think the board want Lennon in charge for next season regardless what the supporters want. With still no fans lilely to be allowed in to games next season, reduced income there wont be any big signings let alone big money for a top manager etc. Basically downsizing and a limited budget, that's why I think Lennon will be here next season.
    However on the other hand he has caused us so much damage, undone all the professional set up and training, coaching that Rodgers had introduced. He does need removed before he causes anymore damage. If the budget allowed I dont think we would attract many decent players with Lennon in charge. A lot of frustrating and difficult times to come before the end of the season.

    There's no point speculating right now or predicting we won't win the league next season..

    We're a shambles right now granted but if we get a good coach in, we can easily retain the title..

    We have some good player's here already and under new guidance and structure, along with some required additions...we will improve massively..

    We need that coach in pronto...or at least to announce that a new man in coming in..

    Judging us on how we are and what we're seeing just now, is pointless..

    It's not just you, I said before this match I thought he was actually delusional, in the proper medical sense of the word, and I am coming more to believe that's the case with every passing comment he makes.

    As far as his management goes, the Mariana Trench isn't deep enough to show just how out of his depth he is when it comes to modern football. He can't accept the fact that the rest of world football has moved on in the last 10 years while he is still stuck there, hoping and expecting that what used to work, ie getting them to run a bit in training then telling them they are better players than the opposition so just go out and beat them, doesn't cut it any more, even against vastly inferior teams and players, and then not being capable of understanding why it doesn't.

    And he just keeps digging us into a deeper pit the longer he refuses to accept reality, or those in charge refuse to take the decision out of his hands. Never mind how bad it is now, it's downright terrifying just how bad things could still get with him here.

    The longer this drags on - the bigger that worry grows. I think we'll know within a month (once the league is lost).

    If Lennon stays - it bodes so badly for our club on + off the pitch.

    There will be a reaction from season ticket fans but I don't think it would stop Desmond if he really wants to keep Lennon.

    However, the atmosphere next season will be awful - especially if fans are allowed back in the stadium.

    I don't see why I should cut Lennon any slack (and I don't think very many fans will) - bad performances and/or results will lead to walkouts/boycotts of matches.

    Desmond is egotistical but I wonder if he's prepared to potentially throw the club into turmoil just to show the fans "who's in charge"

    In ordinary circumstances, yes.

    But we're looking at an enormous rebuild, during a period where our finances will be the worst for well over a decade, and the scum's will be the best since their reincarnation.

    Those denying this are the same that had their head in the sand over the disastrous Lennon appointment. We're looking at some very grim times ahead. It will be years before we see another title in my opinion.

    Desmond is one of the biggest waste of space at Celtic. He's bought his shares and contributed absolutely * all in 20+ years except allegedly, if you believe rumours, was the one behind bringing in Martin O'Neill and Brendan Rodgers. He's a billionaire who hasn't put a penny of his wealth into the club, he's not even the majority shareholder yet seems to be the final word at CP, he hasn't brought any investment from his rich mates into the club, he's literally done * all.

    I stand by it, he wont be in charge next season.

    He's not even spoke to Mckay yet, and he isn't going to come out saying "Naw I'll be gone" unfortunately.

    I think we'll have some clarity after the league is done, whether the payoff rumour is true or not.

    That reporter can get to * btw, he knew what he was doing with the questions.

    It’s easy to fall into this trap as a supporter when the board are clearly negligent. And you can see this has passed on to the players too. They’re * fed up anaw.

    I'm not sure about that. We are abysmal but the Huns aren't world beaters.

    Obviously we can't spend multi millions on players but I honestly believe that, if we get a decent manager/coach who (unlike Lennon) has an eye for a player - we could get good money for Eddie/Ajer/Christie and bring in decent replacements for the same or less money. We have the makings of a team that can definitely compete with Rangers - the longer Lennon stays - the harder it will be.

    I think we could be champions again sooner than you think - depends on a new manager/structure and how well we can work within our finances.

    No they shouldn't. Which is why I would expect my captain to sort that out and grab either Ajer or Welsh to mark him, if the dumpling in the dugout can't organise it.
