    Need supporters who are shareholders to call an EGM and at that EGM demand Lennon's sacking immediately along with the board.

    the celtic trust is the only hope for getting any kind of fan power into the boardroom and it is essential that we achieve this.

    100% agree, given they actually backed him financially this season, all they had to do was replace him when it was obvious he wasn't upto the job and they could have sat back and said we done our job, regardless of if we won it or not. There inaction has now made them as equally to blame as Lennon.

    There's a BIG problem here. This current squad is NOT good enough. Sevco have got stronger this season and we have been found wanting. People go on about Rodgers. When he was here Sevco was a weak outfit compared to now. Our current squad is not as strong as when we had Tierney, Moussa, Armstrong, Boyato, Gordon, etc in the team. We have gone back wards in our recruitment and players like Brown getting older. We have a massive rebuild on for the next couple of seasons.

    Exactly. I was happy with how the board backed him in the summer. Ultimately Lennon’s fault they haven't performed on the pitch. We all seen what was happening so the board must have too

    They've let the club become a laughing stock.

    It's actually unforgivable incompetence at this stage,and what's worse is that they're so * negligent that it's not even inconceivable that Lennon will be given the rebuild job for next season.

    Hail Hail - suck your mum's you *.

    Spot on, unless Gerrard leaves at the end of the season, I can see it been two or three years before we challenge again. You can’t just throw money at it and expect success. Teams take 1-2 seasons to gel.

    There’s more to this than meets the eye IMO.

    You look at the terrible results and performances that have occurred all season. Combine that with Lennon’s interviews and conduct.

    How has he survived this far?

    Initially I thought it was due to the board not having a plan B or inability to find a short term solution. That probably is part of the answer.

    However, things have escalated so much and he remains in place. Despite not having a Plan B or new manager lined up, the board could have easily sacked him and let Kennedy take interim charge until the end of the season.

    So why is he still here? There’s no logical explanation for it.

    The speculation around the 10IAR bonus may be true but the damage he is doing to the club cannot be quantified. He is going to cost the club more money in ST renewals and refunds than it would have cost to let him go.

    I’m convinced that there is stuff going on behind the scenes that we don’t know about. Lennon’s comments last week about not being able to divulge some information publicly would suggest that as well.

    Lennons comments about not hearing anything from the board contrary to him being in charge next season is starting to worry me. The possibilities are that:

    1) They want him to remain in charge next season
    2) They’ve not decided if they want him in charge next season and/or haven’t identified a suitable replacement
    3) They don’t want him in charge next season but haven’t yet mentioned it to him

    Given the board are renowned to hum and haw until the last moment my feelings are that it’s either option 1 or 2. Any business faced with the cluster * of a performance we’ve had this season would act immediately to remedy the situation and put things in place ASAP to better the next years performance. Even if lennon isn’t to be the manager next season it’s imperative the board act now, otherwise we’ll only be setting ourselves up for failure again.

    I sometimes wonder if they think we are all just sitting at home still celebrating a quadruple treble and it’s only a small minority of in their words ‘neds’ that are * off with this. Without fans, and with them probably never looking at social media etc and emails probably never reaching them they probably think it’s all fine.

    The review also is a disgrace promised it was happening on Dec 7th in the new year and things have gotten even worse and we are out of every cup but it’s still ‘ongoing’ ? * is actually going on.

    Wouldn’t hold your breath.

    Lawwell would be the man drawing up the plans and he’s got one foot out the door.

    Bankier is just a front man for the board / shareholders. His football intelligence is non existent.

    Desmond too rich to care.

    They have * ALL for a plan..and they also can * OFF....along with everyone at this club besides Soro and Turnbull,the only 2 that can hold their heads up high.

    I dont want to see any of the current board members at our club again......They have NO * ambition and just want to keep us in the green as much as they can by sacrificing our silverware and fans.

    They got Rodgers the rat because he was available,he wanted the job knowing he would win and get his dream status back down south,it was a 1 off scenario.

    No one like that is taking the job in this currant climate,its gonna someone like Lambert/Clarke/Maloney at best.

    Anyone thinking that they get a mediocre manager in just because Lennon is * and think we all gonna forget about how they have treated us for years can also * off.

    They are Scum and need removed.

    The absolute acceptance of failure after failure is absolutely mind-blowing.


    Any good work and credit for quadruple trebles etc is absolutely tarnished
