    If you can’t see the monumental difference between now and the past, then you’re part of the problem.

    The huns flying at the moment or the pandemic, or both?

    Our magnificent performance away to Lille where we threw away a 2 goal lead and our "comeback" in Aberdeen where we threw away points in the last minute?

    If that's what we're clinging to these are truly desperate times.

    Not clinging to them. An away point to Lille is not to be sniffed at and it was more to highlight how it would point to Lennon not losing the dressing room. The performance against Aberdeen wasn't great either but again it was to highlight the players showing some fight for the manager. The post kind of made that obvious I thought.

    We’ve been utter dug * most of the season, that’s the long and short of it really.

    Rodgers was poor that final season because the * wanted away. When he needed to turn it on, he did. We couldn’t even concede a goal once he started trying. So comparisons to that seasons don’t look too good.

    Jack Ross’s Hibs are *. How low are we going that we’re saying 2-2 is a good result while the Huns have conceded 3 * goals in the same league, having played 2 games more. Gees peace.

    The performances haven’t been poor, they’ve been abysmal. A disorganised mess full of rookie tactical mistakes and bizarre decisions. A few last minute goals have spared us a much bigger gap. Results have flattered to deceive.

    Jesus Christ we didn’t register a shot on target against the Huns. At home.

    ‘We beat Motherwell away recently.’ - * me, enough said.

    I can honestly say having watched us this season I don't think I've ever thought the players are fighting for the manager. What's the point anyway if the manager isn't good enough regardless ? We're a bawhair away from December and he still doesn't know his best formation

    The draw will Lille and the comeback against Aberdeen were just another two results which only masked our frailties. We have been playing without any spark and/or imagination sines the start of the season and practically everyone saw that.

    I think the problem is the pandemic is hurting us much more than Sevco.

    I still back NL the more I hear our support going on about sacking him makes me back him more. I honestly hate the fact fans are not allowed at the games and I think this whole season would have been different if we could have got to the games.

    I hope NL brings the ten home and tells PL that he's out after it, the Celtic support have lost it. There has always been an overreaction amongst the support but it's just crazy now.

    If we sack NL we'd be handing the league to Sevco without a fight. I'd rather get our poor form out early as I'm sure the dark side will start to drop off as always.

    The fact there's no crowd at the games is actually helping lennon immensely, if results were the same and Parkhead was full it would be a toxic place for lennon and the team.

    I still think we can turn things around and win the league this season, however in order to do that we need a change in the dugout and the longer we take to do that the more harm we're doing to our chances.

    Why the * would anyone want Mon or Keane?Mon is passed it (just another lennon)and keane is absolutely useless when its comes to the management side of things,when he was with Ireland you would expect players to be fired up going out but i can honestly say they were never fired up.

    I try to think what people actually think keane would bring to the table based on his past experience in management and i genuinely cant think of anything hes rubbish in fact lennon would probable do a better job than him.

    We need someone who can bring something new and fresh to the club,think Rodgers as an example.We need a manager who will be his own man and will bring in a higher level of professionalism,fitness,and who will set a standard and lead by example. Everything that lenny is not.

    I think we can all agree the pandemic and lack of fans has had a big effect on us and as much as it might pain us to say it the huns are flying.

    These are two things not even a new manager will be able to affect.

    I'm honestly not saying Lennon should stay as we can all see thing aren't right and I'm getting sick of it as well. Just wanted to show that maybe it's not all on Lennon and a new manager might face the same hurdles.

    If anything the comes backs against Aberdeen and Hibs just shows for the majority of most games until something has to be done the players are in barely second gear and give zero *. A few players under performing is one thing but when the whole squad is underperforming that surely falls on the manager and coaching staff

    The way some fans are talking about Lennon is disgraceful at the end of the the day he won 5 out of the last 9 titles and is one of the best managers in our history regardless of what happens this season.

    By all means criticise him for the performances the seasom but people calling him a * and writing on bed sheets need their head checked.

    No club in the country is playing in front of a full house that's to easy a kop out. The fact is we're now at the * end of November and have put in 2 3 at most good performances and the manager still doesn't know his best formation never mind his best XI
