    Fair enough, one dafty that seems to have genuine anger issues.. out of order. This is Celtic and emotions run high.

    But there is also an element in here that think any criticism of Lenny is some sort of hun conspiracy. Anyone that questions him is rounded on by certain posters on here too. The absolute * that has been dished up so far this season deserved to be criticised and questioned. His tactics and team selection has been baffling and no matter what he has achieved in the past should not excuse him from criticism.

    I found it quite funny TBH.

    I back Lenny 100%, but it made me laugh. Not sure what that says about my sense of humour. :56:

    Not seen any evidence of that, there's been plenty of criticism of Lenny on here, from all sorts of different posters, most if it warranted some not.. But it always should be done in the correct manner..

    Well I've seen plenty and been called plenty. I've made no secret that I didn't want Lenny getting the job and I still think he is not the correct person to bring us forward, that didnt go down well with some., not bothered thats life..

    But the bullshit posts about how he was sent bullets and how he was called a * everytime we play bad, give us peace..we all know his past and still has nothing to do with last nights utter shambles against a six year old club or playing no striker in a one game knockout champions league game..

    Just compared current season to season we were going for the other 10IAR. At same stage then we had 6 wins and 1 loss whereas we have 6 wins and a draw.
    We had a lot of pressure then just as now but hopefully we handle it better.

    Aye it is valid to mention tho when he's getting abuse from his own support..

    I didn't want him either and have voiced concerns but not once have I had anyone on here have a dig at me for that opinion..

    Could just be the way you or others put your opinion across..

    But don't call posters out without getting your facts right.

    Be critical of the football and tactics, but no need for derogatory comments and abuse. I've been very critical (and I think deservedly so), but at the same time I don't dislike the man. I just don't think he's good enough to be manager. Perhaps that's associated with the high standards expected here. I'm not enjoying our football here just now.

    There's also the Lenny can do no wrong brigade, which I guess is the opposite extreme. He's been through a lot at Celtic in the past, but that's not a factor when considering our recent performance.

    Sorry are you a moderator? You gave one example of a daftie on a rant.. the posters in question insinuated several posters and lots of hundercovers and trolls. I also pointed out that what happened to Lennon in the past has absolutely * all to do with our current situation.

    Aye well, like I said you asked to be showed where anyone had called him a * and that was just one post..

    He deserves much more respect that some of his own support have shown..

    It's been frustrating and some of the criticism is valid but let's leave the abuse to the scum..

    If I were to do a real one (mine isn't funny, but when was I ever funny?), mine would be:

    1) How much do you know about football?

    (a) The same as any other fan who pays attention, but that doesn't mean I can't sometimes spot mistakes by people who know the game better than me and I still have a right to voice my critical opinion.
    (b) In Neil Lennon's case, I do believe I understand the game better than someone who has played and managed at the highest level for a quarter of a century and has won numerous honours as a player and manager.

    If you answered (a), proceed to question 2.
    If you answered (b), you are deluded and so aren't worth listening to.

    2) What do you think about Lenny's explanations for his decisions (e.g. Klimala not being ready and Ajeti not being fit)?

    (a) Personally I don't always buy his explanations and am wiling to explain why.
    (b) He talks a lot of * and I don't have to address his explanations.

    If you answered (a), proceed to question 3.
    If you answered (b), you are accusing a Celtic legend of being a liar and a gobshite and so aren't worth listening to.

    3) Do you believe you know exactly what goes on in Neil Lennon's head and why he makes his decisions?

    (a) Yes, it's just a fact that he has favourites or that he wanted to be clever by playing a false 9.
    (b) Sometimes I think I might know what his thinking was, but I'm aware this is an opinion and I'm willing to justify it with evidence and/or careful reasoning.

    If you answered (a), you don't understand the difference between fact and opinion and so are not worth listening to.
    If you answered (b), you are allowed to criticise Neil Lennon.


    Frankly speaking, this algorithm would filter out about 2/3 of his critics on here IMHO.

    I agree any abuse should be called out but also anyone questioning his management should be free to do so without accusations of being a hun or troll etc..

    Something is not right the now and needs fixed or else those monkeys from govan will be too close for comfort

    He's the most sanitised, family friendly comedian in the UK. Also one of the most successful.

    In among potential EL games. That’s a very tricky run the way we’re playing at the moment. Potential for a Groundhog Day if he doesn’t get our act together quick-style.

    The only time I would ever laugh when that wee cretin was on stage is if someone from the crowd came onto the stage and nutted him and volleyed him in the baws on the freefall
