Not a reaction, as I nailed my colours to the mast very early doors regarding NL taking over on an interim basis. But, of those supporting the idea of him being a permanent manager, and I ask this based on what I heard somebody asked today, a few month ago would you have swapped him for Rodgers? I know he's not long in the door, won't want to change too much at this sort of stage, but would people seriously think we would be the best we can be by appointing him going forward? I try to say this without being overdramatic as i've mocked posters the past for a few seasons for suggesting similar under BR. But under NL i'm really not sure 10IAR would happen 😯 Just me? The footy wasn't great but it's ****in painful now.

Not going to start slagging Lennon off. My opinion though is we lacked the firepower before Xmas and we then brought in Burke and Weah to add much needed support. To go back and play the players that were struggling to score before Xmas and expect different is either plain stupid or very arrogant. No harm to NL intended as he has the club at heart.

I'm trying not to slag him of Kwaj. Club legend, aye. Man to take us forward, no. Fair point about the two forwards but even under BR I didn't think Burke was a striker. Weah I'm undecided on. He obviously can make an impact but would need to see more of his contribution over 90min.

We played our best this season with a fully fit trio in midfield, McGregor, Christie and Rogic. We had pace and plenty of intelligent movement both on and off the ball.
Lennon today was looking to get these guys much needed game time along with Benkovic and Tierney. I am happy with how things went today and I can see us getting better with these guys in the team.
Its not the end of the world not winning today, it means there is every chance we will win the league at paradise now in front of a full house. We could possibly have our day to celebrate, something the scottish league was trying to take away from us, with sevco playing before us after the split, which ment we could have won the league without actually playing.

I hate BR as much as the next fan but would be have waited till the 85 min to bring on more firepower at home to Livingston. No he would have changed the set up at about 60mins but he would have tinkered with the team to get the opening goal. But NL stays the same till 85 min wtf.

I have noticed a couple of fans are unhappy about the subs lenny made today.
After 60 minutes he takes off Benkovic who is just back from injury and brings on Hayes to get better cross balls into the box. It also gave us a better balance due to Ajar switching from left to right side of defence, with KT on left and Jozo in the middle of only 3 at the back.
After 70 minutes he takes off Rogic who again done better than last week and will get better, he was replaced with Weah which is a positive switch.
Then after 83 minutes he takes off Christie who again played well and will get sharper and replaces him with Burke who nearly and should have got the winner.
I don't see what he could have done differently, it was just one of those days and I am just happy there was not a forced sub for a change due to injury. Keep The Faith.

He could have put on a guy that's scored 17 and made 6 this season and scored over 60 in less than 3 season.
But left a proven goal scorer on the bench when we are chasing a goal.

Agree Leon, the games we don't win domestically these days we don't need to win. Over the last 3 seasons we have won EVERY must win game and I'm fully confident that will continue next Sunday, which will put us one game away from a famous Rebel Treble.

07 Apr 2019 01:07:34
We basically played with a 3 at the back and 6 in midfield at home to Livingston and then constantly cross balls to 1 man being marked with 3 defenders!
I have said over and over again, why play 1 up front at home against teams in the bottom 6.
We have been poor this season but since Lennon has can in we have been Chronic and before Everyone starts shouting, I know we are unbeaten and miraculously we are still going for the treble but Lennon is not the way forward.

Jimtim wasnt having a go at you as your entitled to your opinion and I agree with you about NL. I was merely stating that I was not.
