    The board have a great deal of blame to take for this embarrassing situation that The club find themselves in .
    Lenny will get fired but the board and the players should be disgusted with themselves for the * fest we are in .

    He should have given his P45 after we got pumped 4-1 at home in Europe.

    The board are to blame for that, also for has to carry the can for not looking at other managers when he appointed Lennon.


    If the zombies never imploded last season we wouldn’t have won the 9.

    Criminal that it’s come to this

    If you are going to gather en masse, at least wear a face mask.

    They definitely shoulder some responsibility, but I think it would be the easy way out to put most of the blame on them. Their mistake has been the original hiring decision (which I myself was in favour of) and the fact they’ve stuck by him, stubbornly.

    Still though, they backed him. They backed him than any manager I’ve seen in recent years at a time when finances were stretched.

    Lennon and the players have to shoulder most of the blame for this one I’m afraid.

    Ultimately, they’ve got what they always wanted. Status quo in Scotland, much better for the balance sheet. Congratulations.

    1,654 days ago Celtic appointed Brendan Rodgers.

    The share price was £74, almost exactly where it was when Lawwell arrived 12 years earlier. That was 12 years of zero shareholder returns in an era that football revenues exploded.

    The year before Rodgers arrival Celtic had to put tarpaulin over a portion of the stadium as they couldn’t sell out the stadium.

    We floundered under an unknown Scandinavian manager winning only 3 of the six trophies and failing to do anything of note in Europe.

    The CEO was cut out if the recruitment process as the club took a massive step forward in terms of modern football managers.

    The stadium was filled with 15,000 fans to recognise this great leap forward by the club, joyous scenes.

    We went on to win the next 11 domestic trophies on the back of the platform laid down by Rodgers.

    We qualified twice in a row for CL.

    The stadium sold out and turnover went over £100m

    The share price went up 120% in 18 months to £165

    Rodgers decided to leave Celtic.

    Instead of continuing this obviously successful strategy on all fronts the CEO regained control, after appointing the stand in manager in a fit of excitement in the shower room after a cup final win turning his back on a modern strategy.

    18 months later before we enter December we are out of two European competitions, out the league cup and falling behind in the league with so signs of any way out of one of the the worst 10 game run in our history

    The club looks rudderless and the stadium has just had fans protesting in the middle of a pandemic such is the frustration level.

    The share price has lost 75% of the gains it made in 2016-18. It would not be surprising if it returned to £75 by the end of the season.

    This means in an almost 20 year stewardship there will have been no shareholder value created.

    The only time the shareholder value increased was when the CEO was removed from the strategy.

    I get the anger, but a minority of the fans embarrassing us further.

    Short sighted from them if this is their plan.
    We made record money when the Huns were no marks in this league and we had Rodgers and going in to the champions League. Would have done better had we made the last 16 as well.

    We don't need the Huns to make money, we can do that on our own. All we need is a good approach and a good squad to be proud of and push in Europe with.

    The team has need an complete overhaul for 2 years now and the board has sat back and watched us stagnate and regress and now its finally blown up in their face. this team needs massive rebuilding and desmond and lawell are not the men for the job.

    No doubt the SMSM will be escalating it from a small protest to a full scale riot with life's put in danger due to Covid etc. That's if they have any ink left after writing their gushing praises about Slippy's win today

    Boycotting merch is the only way they’ll listen.
