    You think Neil Lennon still being in a job is partly to do with fans who still back him? :giggle1:

    On paper, we absolutely do have a better squad than them.

    All it proves is just how poor a manager Lennon is that we find ourselves in this position.

    We can still win 10iar if we sack Lennon within the next week, but I honestly think theyll run away with it if he's still here by the game at Ibrox.

    I think he gets a lot of leeway from fans and his pals in the media.

    If this was Deila he’d be getting it from all angles, which puts more pressure on the board and the manager himself to walk.

    Mate a managers job isn’t just team selection and formation.

    Look at the absolutely shambolic organisation on that pitch. Even the lack of fitness now - which we built our treble treble success on.

    It’s not complicated, it’s Lennon that’s the major problem and the easiest one to fix.

    As if every manager doesn’t deal with mistakes, players losing form etc.

    Only difference is our manager has far MORE options than most managers fs

    I get the impression he yet picks what he thinks is his best players and hopes for best. no tactical plan and no picking the best players for the game plan he has or hasn't got as its showing lately

    No i think its gone already.
    The huns are mediocre but they playing as a unit,and no other team in Scotland can play a game against them,it was always down to us to beat them.

    Throw in the luck of their sickness situations,no injuries,and then the penalties they get with the orange refs......i just cant see us clawing it back,new manager or not.

    Always thought this year would be difficult with the decisions in their favour,but its Celtic,the board,the staff and a majority of the players have utterly * it now.

    C'mon now. do you honestly think our board have any foresight?. They will probably wait till we fall behind Aberdeen or Hibs before they react

    We 100% have a far superior squad full of internationalists and proven winners, they have a squad that is in form and have a very clear game plan. We have a squad that is struggling for confidence and a manager that has no clue how to set us up.

    I still don't think Neil Lennon is necessarily a bad manager but the players obviously aren't playing for him and our tactics seem to not suit the team. Sometimes things just don't work and in this case his time is done.

    He’s certainly not a good manager. Albeit it’s all relative.

    This all day long.

    It's far too myopic to blame a few individual errors of late for the mess we're in.

    If people can't see that apart from 2-3 games we've been utter dogshit all season, then that's for them to believe.

    The overwhelming majority of people see it for what it is.

    The board thought they were picking the easy (and, most importantly, cheapest) option via The Shower Incident, and they probably did so based on the belief that we were so far ahead of Sevco, anycunt could have delivered the 10.

    Suicidal thinking.

    Deila accepted his fate on the 20th April, 3 days after the 2-2 draw to the huns.
    The previous 8 games to that announcement he had won 5 of the previous 8 with 3 draws.

    Lennon is on 2 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats in those 8 games.

    Yet this man is still backed and holds on to his job.

    Deila was hounded out the club with a much much better run of games, he left the right way and held his hands up to his short comings.

    Man deserves respect. Lennon deserves * all for this season.
    Brilliant and a legend in the past, but that is where it stays, in the past.
