    Frustrating that he once again made changes - changes that worked well and got us playing again - when it was already too late.

    Just watched us penned into our own half for 30 mins.

    Pretty much this.

    On paper, it’s a good point. But still a number of frustrating aspects - not least keeping Ntcham on about 20 minutes longer than he should have been.

    Feel so flat after that second half..

    Sat back. Invited pressure..

    He made zero changes to a midfield that was gassed early on in the second, particularly Ntcham..

    So much good in the first half and positives but the second was like a rewind of a couple of game's already this season where you can see the errors and goals coming a mile off..

    So so poor to capitulate like we did..

    Well do it then. You are the manager

    He never learns from previous mistakes. 4 games without a win. Lose at the weekend and he has to go

    Awful management in the 2nd half

    The fact he's saying while making the sub i think we should take oli off is alarming

    So frustrating from him, whatever you think of Lennon you can't deny his substitutes are utterly horrendous, either doesn't do them at all or does them too late, infuriating.

    I still want him to go but not anymore than I did on Sunday, Need a big performance against Aberdeen in the cup semi. After that first half i was certain this would be the turnaround game, but that second-half performance was absolutely horrendous up until the last 10 minutes.

    Two different teams. First half we pressed like * and second we sat back like you said.

    A draw would've been a great result before kick off but feels like a loss now

    It's a decent result, but it's extremely disappointing to surrender a two-goal lead. Hopefully, the performance in the first half is a catalyst for a good run domestically.

    A point away in Europe is a good result, but it honestly feels like a defeat, once again Lenny's frailties were on show tonight, it's really frustrating watching the same movie over and over.

    Shape, passing, creativity was all excellent in that first half and we could've been more than 2-0 up.

    When we're in that position though we should be able to shut up shot. Criminal how Ntcham stayed on the park til 80 mins, he was clearly done long before that.

    B- on the report card. Better but still room for improvement. Confident that we'll batter Aberdeen on Sunday.

    Harsh.

    Came up against a good side today and created chances on the counter. Defending from set plays was horrendous, has been for too long, and questions need to be asked about that.

    You have to give out praise where it’s due, and I say that as someone who has been very critical of Lennon recently. A point in the road against this Lille side is a good result.

    Decent result but poor coaching. It was a good team performance but Lille had enough competent coaching to completely turn the game around.

    We don’t. Simple as that, good result but nothing will change in the long run without doing what everyone with the slightest knowledge of football can see as easy as anything.

    That's how I feel now. Like we got beat..

    Strange as *. He needed taking off about 20 minute's earlier and the fact he couldn't see it and was having to ask is just bizarre..

    Brilliant first half and equally * second half. Some baffling decisions.

    Our fitness is a serious worry.
