    The only hope i have is that the new ceo and the existing board of directors will be acutely aware of the impending fan exodus due to the utter levels of incompetence of this season.

    If they want to ensure fans return, or spend money on merch they are going to have to make serious efforts to bring a decent name in. Guys like Clarke, Keane, MON, Lampard aren't going to get fans falling over each other to renew and * away money.

    Next season financially will have to be a write off, they will have to risk it and get money spent on the new guy his backroom staff and then some good eye popping transfers. The cost of doing that short term, will be far less than * off fans anymore then they already will be if they don't show ambition and end up giving the role to Kennedy or that ilk and the long term effect that then has on fans.

    Exactly what I was thinking with both points and especially Howe. Anyone available now would want to get in and prepared for next season. In fact this would be a brilliant time for a manager to see who he wants and have a decent set up in place for the CL qualifiers.

    The club never actually said it was until the end of the season did they?

    I think it indicates the board had no intention of replacing Lennon until he finally caved in and walked. They had no contingency plan, hence Kennedy til the summer.

    Don’t think the club has said much. I just assumed. Good point though mate. :50:

    Aye if we had any serious intention of getting in someone who is currently unemployed then Kennedy likely would have followed with Lennon. But that's just my view on it.

    I just hope that whoever the * is, he's given the say on who he wants with him and not lumped with with current dross still in a job.

    Literally every single coach employed at the club should * off

    I agree. Lennon was delusional or something, but he was not sacked- he went because it dawned on him that he just can't get the 10. Now the board are * off they will need to fork out money for a good manager to get ST money.

    More likely that we have no plan IMO.

    Better hope we’ve no flung out that filing cabinet full of CV’s from 2 year ago.

    Even if a man is available now I don't want him starting. Loose a game and thats it weve lost next season, a summer of depressing *. * that. The end of the season announce the new man to give us something to look forward to watching pre season..

    I would hope to * we had a plan. They have waited long enough for this day. Unless they actually believed Lennon would turn it around.

    I think to be honest if THAT "demonstration" at CP never happened he might have been sacked earlier.

    Instead, imo, the board decided to stick with him as a big GIRFUY towards the supporters because they dared to have a go at the board and Lennon.

    Yip.

    I do think the board deserve the credit for backing their man, which they absolutely did, to an extent.

    That being said, even * blind Peter could see he needed chased around about November time and did nothing, so they deserve every bit of criticism coming their way.

    Time for them to get their heads out of their own arses full of self-importance, and pull some rabbits out of some hats very very soon...

    Kennedy shouldn’t be on the list in the first place.

    Also if McKay can hire who he wants then he isn’t doing anything until he is in the door which makes it even more worrying if that’s the case since he doesn’t come in till the 1st of July.

    We have play off games for the champions league, to be fair not that it matters next season we will get nowhere near it with the harder route and be lucky to even qualify for Europe.

    I'd like to think that if I had just been appointed new CEO of Celtic and my mate was on KDS spouting off about a conversation I had with him, I'd be round his house sticking the nut on him.

    So, with that in mind, yer man on KDS is a pish-spouting *.

    Exactly! What achievements? Just don't look at them and they don't exist.

    I do the same with my son that I don't have!
