    They need to sack Lennon- Lawwell needs to, rather. He gave him a full-time contract, now he needs to set up changes.

    I was at the League Cup Final last year and that for me was a watershed moment. We were lucky as * to win that and were totally outplayed. It was the first time I think that they felt they were on a par with us, and they have grown in confidence since.

    If we continue on with Lenny, I seriously doubt we have any chance to compete.

    I seen a post along the lines of “i wouldnt celebrate lennon getting sacked “ i total agree with this , i thank him for what he hs done in previous years but now is the time to go and we need a manger that is gonna bring us to the way football is played now ! I am a bit worried about this board selecting the next manager as i think they will focus on a celtic minded person !! Think they will try for clarke or someone of that ilk which i dnt think we need !

    Yet wee Tommy Tactics decided to play the exact same way at CP the following game, and guess what....they won. Comfortably. On our pitch.

    Offt, they'll be selective for sure.
    But the submitted question, if chosen of not, should highlight to them the feelings

    If Lennon isn't sacked tomorrow, I genuinely don't know what he has to do to be relieved of his duties...

    It’s sickening.

    They * could not be in a better place and we are crumbling. The board are watching it happen.

    Yes, but their inaction thus far is damning. They get paid very well for running the club. And if they understand football, then they will know that only winning gives money. The fix to our issues is simple: get in a man who can reduce the amount of goals we concede. Lennon must be too full of pride to walk, but as much as I want him to finish what he started, he can't.

    Now though, Lawwell's admission of basically binning applications last time we were looking for a manager, will hurt us.

    It’s past that for me. The time to be respectful and step down would have been after the CL exit * I’d even been respectful after the old firm.

    Now it’s toxic, every press conference he’s done recently has treated us the fans with utter contempt.. go look at Gary Holts post match.. night and day

    It is hurting us, but that was their prerogative, their choice (rightly or wrongly), but they have backed that choice very, very well which I see as nothing but a positive.

    Their horse is making a right * of it, and aye they HAVE to change it ASAP. If they fail to do this, you'll be the first to hear me slaughtering them, but as it stands I feel they should at the very least be praised for backing him financially.

    If Lennon gets sacked then things can get even worse, Kennedy will take over. I don't see a viable candidate to take over at this time. What top manager is going to put his reputation at risk with not winning 10 iar? We can say Lennon did the damage but only the manager at the time will be remembered. I think we will be plodding along with Lennon for the foreseable future , to at least the cup final anyway. Lennon coming out now and critising players and refusing to take responsibility tells me he is far too stubborn to walk away and firmly believes our form has nothing to do with him

    Horseshit man. The only manager who’s reputation is in ruins is NL.

    It’s a free shot for whoever comes in.

    There is only an upside. We’re going to lose if we stick with the status quo, we may as well roll the dice. If we lose after doing so, so be it. We tried

    The board have as big a part in this as anyone: 3 CL appearances in the last 7 attempts is an unmitigated disaster. They were responsible for that in appointing wrong managers, not funding the right manager and not getting players in time for qualifiers every single time. Quite well documented that the Rodgers/Lawwell relationship broke down long before he left.

    The failure at European level and acceptance of such has, in part, led to them overtaking us in Europe and now they could do it domestically as well.

    Shocking when you think about it.

    Yes, but with a caveat: we don't know how reachable was Forster, financially. Could we have spent 10M on him, instead of paying 6 for Barkas? Then again, if Forster never wanted to come at all, then the board are not to blame.

    Totally agree. The win masked our shortfalls that day and that performance should have set the alarm bells ringing

    So we bring a new manager in and we dont win 10 iar, do you really think blame wouldn't be directed at that manager? The reason wanting Lennon to leave is to try and salvage 10 iar!!!

    Forster was approached to come back, on loan I believe.

    He refused saying he wanted to fight for his place at Southampton.

    We then paid £5m for Barkas.
