Our clueless manager with a tactical masterclass full of character and heart. Injury to our outstanding centre half but no problem. Anyone still doubting Lennon should have a word with themselves. Lucky to have him. Far better watch as well than BR brand of football.

Looks like Celtic should just forfeit the points tomorrow. Vast majority of pundits and columnists going for convincing Rangers win. Then there is Kris Boyd saying Bongoli and Julian have weakened the team. He picks a combined XI with 6 current buns and 5 Celtic players on current form. No place for Ajer.

Really hope the team can forget the crowd intimidation factor and play to a level that will be too hot for an overhyped Rangers team. Have a feeling that Bayo might just have a big say tomorrow.

I agree there lenny has to drum it in to them that all of the media journalist are desperate for the bhoys to fail fill the Jersey lads and walk away from the snake pit as champions should do the hype from the media on this average newco team is actually embarrassing my only concern is the officials I dimt care what anyone says officials can swing a game not a problem please God we get a fair crack and step up lads if we do I predict slippy will get hit hard with the knuckle draggers.

You must be having a laugh, the crowd intimidation factor?, that should be an insentive, there is nothing better than silencing that crowd, the better team will win, if Lenny picks the right team and tactics, the silence from the majority of the crowd at Ibrox will be golden.

3.) 31 Aug 2019 23:38:18
Bhoys expect the expected intimidation, the usual corrupt orange biased officials, it’s the way it always has been and always will.
We’ve grown out from that cess pit bigoted vile preference We’ve proven we’re better than that on the pitch, that’s where it matters.

4.) 01 Sep 2019 04:44:38
Sevco have been fast starters under slippy and Celtic have not scored many goals in the first 30 minutes with Lenny in charge. The first 30minutes will be crucial and if we are at least level after this time, we will go on to win the match.
I can see Christie scoring today, although I doubt it will be from the penalty spot.

5.) 01 Sep 2019 09:06:50
The lack of Celtic support is definitely a factor and you could see in the last two visits, how some of our players were intimidated and froze, while others failed to match their intensity and aggression.
Even the manager on the last game was very withdrawn and static.
There's no doubt we have the talent and quality advantage, but if we fail to match the effort, fight and energy, we will struggle.
However, NL will know that this is a perfect opportunity to silence his critics, their hollow boasts and remind everyone of our intent.

6.) 01 Sep 2019 09:20:35
LeedsCelt three of today’s officials are not orange as you suggested one of the assistants is my son in law the other from a big Celtic supporting family and the fourth official is Collum who is most definately not orange.

7.) 01 Sep 2019 09:26:45
watching the pundits eating humble pie will be almost as good as taking the points home from the asbestos dome - 1 pundit even promoting a 4 - nil score line - OMFG what planet are these people on - NL should only need to show them these predictions to motivate out bhoys - so long as we play to %85+ of our capabilities it will be enough to put the orcs back in there places - HH - 2 to go till 10 in a row.

Well, Lennon has proved what the enlightened knew, he's not the man for the job! 😆.

I know get him out and his boring football, where's Burke and Weah when you need em🙈.

2.) 03 Aug 2019 17:46:33
I absolutely stand by my thoughts that there are better managers than Neil Lennon that we could have at least considered. If you want to shout 'I told you so' after the first league game then good for you.

3.) 03 Aug 2019 18:28:37
As long as your no saying a told you so Jim al be happy . some on here wanted cocu why I don't know we'll see how long he lasts at derby better the devil you know.

4.) 03 Aug 2019 19:48:35
Jim Jim, it doesn’t matter who we considered, it only matters who the Board decided on and at this early stage Board has got it right as Lennon has hit the ground running . Some so called better managers, who may or may not have been considered by Board could have came in and changed everything and we could have been biting our nails in January wondering could our super manager get things right and start a run of wins so that we could climb table .

5.) 03 Aug 2019 21:54:09
come on jimtim
who would have been a better manager
without talking about huge wages and who is a proven winner lennon is all this plus a successful footballer and ex celtic manager who did magic BTW and knows what to do in europe
who know the scottish league
who knows the celtic fans
who knows how to win
who can fight with the players when not pulling there weight blah blah
neil lennon is the correct choice
its a great start and we looked fantastic playing the CELTIC WAY and lenny knows how to destroy defeding teams who play against us.
keep positivity and get over lennon only judge him him a football manager nothing else he is a winner.
most managers would not cut it in our league.

6.) 03 Aug 2019 22:03:36
Not judging Lennon after one game. I remember him doing well at ‘his’ club with a significantly inferior squad to the one he has now. Two last 16 appearances in the CL and won every league he competed for. Much more experienced now. The Hibs team he got promoted were brilliant to watch. Yes it went pear-shaped but he’s where he wants to be now.

There was no evidence to judge him as anything other than a fine choice for the job.

@ Mally. I hope i'm not either mate. We know the standard in terms of silverware that needs to be met. There's some encouraging signs yes. My concerns weren't just on the park. I said the same about Rodgers regarding Deila, as I'll say about Lennon regarding Rodgers - there's been a lot of improvements behind the scenes. I hope that isn't all ruined for a drinking culture, chips at Lennoxtown and 90s coaching.

@ Chris. If all that matters is what the board decides what are we even doing here discussing things?

@ Andy. Not sure where to start really. I'm certainly not going to list better managers because I have things to do today. Knowing the players and the league was important and I said as much when he was appointed as interim. Knowing the fans is irrelevant and knowing how to win, well, there's lots who know how to win. I'm sorry to burst the bubble but the CELTIC WAY is a pile of BS wee tims are told about as they're getting tucked in at night along with the Tooth Fairy and Santie Claus. But the football, in the miniscule sample we've had, does look better. The less said about a manager "who can fight with the players" the better. As a fitness guru mate, what's your thoughts on pub crawls mid season and allowing players to eat crisps if that's what makes them happy?

@ Cockhill. Won every league he competed for?



31 Mar 2019 14:02:25
Anyone doubting Edouard needs to reevaluate. He is absolute quality with the ball at his feet. Won that game with two moments of real quality. Unfortunately we'll cash in on him down the line. Guarantee it will be for a whole lot more than Morelos!

Lennon is doing a fine job given the carnage left behind by Rodgers departure. You could see Rodgers slow build up infecting that performance today. NL has done remarkably well to keep the wheels from falling off. He has not risked stability with a major overhaul of BRs imprint on the players. Plenty of new managers would have let their egos get in the way. NL understands exactly what is at stake.

Hope he gets it permanently as he has his heart and soul invested in our club. Oh, and he has proved himself a very capable manager in Europe.

We were terrible today . Lennons team now. Lennon tactics / direction nobody else's. but 3 pts none the less.

2.) 17 Mar 2019 16:25:42
To be fair, Dundee’s set up was so defensive that instead of pressing our centre halves he was pressing our center kids. meaning 11 men behind the ball, all camped in the final third.

No excuses though. We struggled against them, and dare I say it, got a bit lucky.

3.) 17 Mar 2019 16:50:57
Carnage! Lennon has been handed an opportunity to be at the helm for a treble. Something he didn’t manage once.

Great player, decent manager but if he is the next permanent manager then it’s a severe backward step for Celtic. So lucky we had an 8 point lead and that Sevco are rotten.

Instead of rejoicing in our dominant position we will have a summer of rebuilding.

Rodgers was the best British manager out there, so only option is a foreign manger with some pedigree, who though? No idea to be honest.

4.) 17 Mar 2019 17:12:05
Lennon, is not the man for the job, apart from 20 mins in the Hibs game we have been shockingly bad. Get Rose In and stop messing about.

5.) 17 Mar 2019 18:59:12
There have been shocking performances many times this season, this is still Brendan's team, will take them a while to play the way Lennon wants, still can't forgive Rodgers for playing McGregor at fullback at Ibrox, think he was coming to the end of his purple patch and got out when the going was good, there is obviously an anti Lennon clique on these pages, think he should be given a few more games untill you start slaughtering him,

6.) 17 Mar 2019 20:51:18
Does anyone think that Lennon could be a first team coach to a manager or a number 2 to a high profile manager? He’d still make better money than managing a Hibs or similar. And as we know he loves the clubs but we have seen his ideas in the flesh and they weren’t ever ground breaking or scintillating. Lot of love for NL but he got lucky today and I’m worried that it’s a step down as apposed to up or even side ways.

7.) 17 Mar 2019 21:19:54
The departure of Rodgers was indeed carnage. The club was in meltdown off the park. Lennon came in and won two extremely difficult games that has completely steadied the ship.

3 away wins and a home draw with 1 goal conceded.

Those two victories gave Sevco absolutely no cause for optimism. They were critical wins that knocked the psychological stuffing out of them.

8.) 17 Mar 2019 21:36:37
Agree Aindoh 100% a bit more respect for Neil Lennon the man who played for us and who has come to our assistance in our hour of need selflessly without any concern about his own ego and motivated purely by a love of the club and a bit less respect for the man who departed us with no concern about Celtic who fed us lies and platitudes for three years might be in order. I also think discussing whether he’s up to the job and who his successor may be is disappointing and disrespectful while the man attempts to deliver a treble treble and ten in a row. Maybe we’re just becoming as shallow a support as the Huns. Anyway Happy St Pattrcks day Goodnight and God Bless. ☘️.

9.) 18 Mar 2019 06:22:08
Jfp I get your point mate but surely if wee have big ambitions to really kick on wee must be thinking about a new manager . He who hings aboot gettith hee haw time to is now .

I would have been very confident of making the group stages had we drew the 2nd leg against Slavia at CP. The atmosphere is too intimidating for most teams and becomes the 12th man. It’s why we’ll beat Cluj but getting the victory in Prague if the tie is in the balance will take a supreme effort.

Rondon was on £70k per week at West Brom. Chinese wage is in the region of £250k per week. Sadly average established players like Rondon are well out of our wage bracket.

Yeah, give Lennon the job. Don’t underestimate what he has done to get it over the line. Absolute legend he is. That’s 4 of the 8 league titles he has won and people think he’s not good enough? Careful what you wish for!

Strange thing to say after the success we had under BR but he has left a lasting negative impact on the squad. The pedestrian passing game he implemented is not working. When up against half-decent, extremely motivated opposition, it breaks down. Unfortunately we don’t have players to move it through the lines fast enough. It was clear yesterday when the ball was pressed hard, our players lost possession time and time again. Players of the calibre needed to make the current style work are at the very top sides and well out of our reach.

I also think when players are asked to play the way we do, they become complacent and often get caught flat footed, expecting time on the ball that they don’t have.
