Like most fans I'm not convinced NL is the best we could have got. That said I have no problem in him getting a run at it with his own signings. I would like Paddy back as his first signing. Rogic has 6 months to get his career back on track and should forget jetting back to Oz for internationals until he does.

Agree2 1Disagree

26 May 2019 22:36:34
I'd have loved us to get Paddy permanently when he was here. But he wasn't in the frame when he was here mate and with Shved coming in I really can't see it now.

I honestly think it would be a blessing if Rogic went to Oz - and stayed there.

Stephen O’donnell from Kilmarnock, Lennon’s first signing.

No SPL players from here on in, we need better than that.

Just read the headline from lawell saying we don’t need a major rebuild in the summer! Seems like the same old rubbish happnin in the transfer window yet again! Happy days eh! We need new centre half right back striker left winger and LB back up for KT! But no need for major rebuild! going to be a long summer by the way!

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2019 01:43:27
Griffiths is back and we've still to see Bayo. Hayes is now Tierney's back up and Sinclair extended his deal. We need a new RB and CB. Shved looks like a good addition to the squad. Do we need a big overhaul?

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 19:03:06
Can I ask with Lennie coming in full time, loads of us (inc me) are saying we shouldn’t go back. Where are you on Leigh Griffiths? In my opinion We aren’t going to get the Griffiths from a couple of years ago, he won’t be the main man anymore and he probably won’t be able to play alongside eddy . I personally think eddy needs a decent hold up forward with him so he can get the ball and drive in from deeper. So where does that leave him? Even when he scored a few earlier in the season he was pointing to his chest saying he was number 1, but in reality he’s not anymore especially after us spending 9 million on eddy . How long will he be happy if he’s sub? Again if we are lucky enough to make the group stages of Europe, I personally feel we need better for that level? What’s everyones opinions please.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 19:52:46
I personally think Eddy should get his finger out and start doing some of the dirty work for the team like tracking back and closing down, if he doesn't have the ball he doesn't look interested!

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2019 20:09:02
Seeing how Griffiths can play when his head straight he is a massive player to have in the squad and we suffered at times not having him this season.
If you get Griffiths that played against England then no one can say he's not an asset to have.
There will be more than enough games for him to make an impact next season. His dead ball delivery is the also the best at the club right now.

Agree2 1Disagree

26 May 2019 20:39:21
Truth is he's been back up to a few different strikers now and more than one manager. We've missed a back up though and I hope he can make a return.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2019 20:53:29
As much as I respect mr lennon for all he has done for our great club I think this is the wrong approach mr lawell and mr desmond must be held accountable if this goes wrong.

Agree2 0Disagree

26 May 2019 21:23:27
Griff wasn’t injured so no reason why he can’t be as good as he was before. Desmond and Pedro are always accountable, and they can handle that. That’s why they’re in a position to make the big decisions that would have the majority of us wetting our pants if we were faced with them.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 22:27:21
I am sorry I am still celebrating our treble treble and I am not ready to fault Eduardo for perceived lack of tracking back .
I think we should wait to see what changes in personnel we have by mid late July and what tactics N L develops with his new squad before we start pointing a critical finger at the man who won the match yesterday .
A good day yesterday, much more work to be done, by Board who must back NL in bringing in players he seeks and building up back room skills . Lennon getting the right players scouted and brought in and extra coaching etc skills . Us supporters whether we like N L or not must set aside our feelings for Lennon and remember our love for Celtic and support the whole club.

Ed you give up the site and we're all coming around to your living room to argue about Celtic!

{Ed007's Note - That's no bother, I'll just go upstairs lol.}

Agree2 1Disagree

26 May 2019 18:27:34
I hope you decide to stay on the site ED, it wouldn't be the same without you.
I wondered ED whether you think this decision was made on the spur of the moment at the final whistle or had it been planned all along and they just announced it then? .
If it was done on the spur of the moment the board are going to look pretty silly if after they have spoken to Lennon he turns the job down because either his salary isn't good enough or his transfer budget is not as high as he hoped.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, Gerry. It was always going be either Clarke or Lennon but Clarke was never going to take it for personal reasons and I think Moyes was a back-up option if it hadn't worked out with Lennon. Any talk of AVB and Benitez etc was all just pie in the sky stuff.}

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 18:59:07
Thanks ED. I never for a minute thought that the likes of Benitez would come here, it was just fantasy stuff.
I had hoped though that they would have looked to continue the work Rodgers did at the club rather than go back to a way that didn't work that well before.
However I suppose Lawwell's bonus is the most important thing.

{Ed007's Note - You need to remember that we're a Champions League Club according to some 😂😂😂😂

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 19:55:15
We're more of a CL club than Newcastle lol; plus the latest rumout suggests that there was a meeting with Benitez/ representatives and the invitation was turned down?
I mentioned before, the only EPL managers we have any chance of luring away are the ones we've had - with so-called Celtic affinity.
I am struggling with the prospect of NL, but understand why the club played safe and economical after the way the last manager left.
Only thing for it is to get behind him and the team and hope.

{Ed007's Note - According to Ed002 there was no meeting with Benitez or anyone connected to him. He simply has no interest in managing in Scotland and made that clear when the speculation arose.}

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 20:11:40
Anyone that thinks lawwell picked Lennon is dreaming.
It was DD all the way.
Gerry you do know that lawwells bonus gets bigger the more successful we are both on and off the park.

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 20:31:50
According to reports in the press today, no other manager had ben approached for the vacant managers job and regardless of yesterdays result Lennon was getting the job! I for one thought his chance of landing the job had gone after the performance/ result at crumble dome but to say that the job was still his regardless of yesterdays result/ performance is beyond belief.
I really struggle to see any positives form this appointment.

{Ed007's Note - He's a Celtic man and "gets it" supposedly and that's enough to get the job these days apparently.}

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 20:37:28
Rafa is a gent. He has said numerous times he wants to stay at Newcastle and unless those negotiations come to an end he would honour the process. He politely declined to talk to Roma and Marseille during said process so the idea he'd be in dialogue with us is laughable.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 20:40:39
Kev Lawwell said that Lennon was the only candidate.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 20:56:38
Have you even known any mangerial job to be announced like happened yesterday Ed?
It seems so amateurish and not what I'd expect from a club of our size. Clearly trying to get the fans on board with the treble treble result.

{Ed007's Note - The local manager at our McDonald's got his job the same way. The previous manager left for more money at KFC and the unemployed guy they took on to cover got the job because they met their trimonthly targets of switching to paper straws.
That and jobs arranged at Masonic meetings for their cronies and bitches.}

26 May 2019 21:08:45
Aye that's because Dermot Desmond told him so.

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 21:25:52
Maybe this was a trial period, not to see how Lennon performed, but for Lennon to see if he wanted to put himself thru all the hate from the bigot brothers again, maybe the board had already told Lennon, the job was his if he wanted it, but he told them to wait till the end of the season before offering him it on a permanent basis to see how he felt.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2019 21:28:46
You're not a broken man yet Ed, still the same class replies!
Keep with it, we'd be lost without mate.

{Ed007's Note - We're already lost and wandering in the wilderness.}

Agree1 1Disagree

26 May 2019 21:38:31
Pod I posted that yesterday too, you would never normally see an announcement unless a contract is signed.

They announced it whilst everyone was celebrating and as emotions were high to gloss over that terrible decision.
They were well aware of how the fans felt about it.

I’m with you ed, can’t see me paying much attention to Celtic for the foreseeable. I’ve already fallen asleep a few times during games since Lennon has been here.

{Ed007's Note - Any Celtic fan looking forward to next season are deluding themselves, anyone with even a modicum of common sense can see what's on the horizon.}

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 21:48:24
Told him to tell bare faced lies? We know that other managers have expressed an interest because they said so themselves. I just find it strange he was branded the only candidate. Liewell I've begrudgingly gave the benefit of the doubt to for several years now. Between the awful decisions, the man can broker a deal. This latest one is it for me now. He can go. There are plenty of good businessmen out there. And some I'm sure that could either employ somebody else to, or themselves make much better footballing decisions than he can.

26 May 2019 22:08:04
Expressing an interest and actually applying for the job are two different things.

Agree1 1Disagree

26 May 2019 22:29:55
JimTim, are you James Traynor in disguise? Your use of the word ‘Liewell’ certainly raises my suspicion and to suggest that Pedro should go in what is our most successful period, both on and off the pitch, in decades, is delusional to the levels that are only seen at the Crumbledome. 😂😂😂😂😂.

Agree2 1Disagree

26 May 2019 22:43:35
Even if you apply for it, that doesn’t necessarily make you a candidate. I could have applied for it but I’m fairly sure I would not have been considered a candidate.

Agree0 1Disagree

27 May 2019 01:31:24
candidate: a person who applies for a job.

So I think you'll find that if you apply, you ARE a candidate. Let's not get delusional now.

As for your suspicion that I am James Traynor, I'll gladly take that as a joke as opposed to being a delusional statement.

As for success off the pitch? As somebody who isn't a major shareholder I couldn't give a flying f*ck. So we banked 9m for a very good manager whilst re-employing a second-rate one. 👏👏👏 Well done us.

I'll ask you this - and try not to be delusional now - what trick did Leicester miss spending 9m on BR when they could have had Lennon for nothing; a man who knows the club?

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 16:57:26
Downunderbhoy, you clearly haven't been paying attention to Lennon's previous comments, or the rubbishstorm created at Celtic when Deila suggested that pro footballers should look after their bodies 24/ 7. Under Lennon, it'll be 1980s uk footbaler rules. He's a rubbish coach who won't have success anywhere else.

Agree2 1Disagree

26 May 2019 21:34:50
Lennon had Hibs playing modern, attractive football, then for whatever reason he lost the plot, with some of the players, maybe a clash of personalities? .
Ronnie had Celtic playing turgid, boring football, but that didn't matter as long as they were eating the right nutrients and vitamins, then for whatever reason, he lost the dressing room, maybe a clash of personalities? .

{Ed007's Note - You really don't have a clue.}

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 22:12:16
Educate me Ed, I was talking about the way Lennon had Hibs playing before he did what to whom, from the story I heard, not the way he had Celtic playing, and if you thought Ronnie had Celtic playing exciting modern football, we will have to differ.

{Ed007's Note - You're ignorance stops you being educated.}

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 22:12:18
Tbh I do think deila was pushed out to quickly. But this was kind of justified when the big name replacement came in. Celtic played much better football under deila than lennon, the difference being there may be a few more memorable ones under Lennon.

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 22:31:04
If Aindoh hasn’t a clue then neither have I. 😁.

Agree1 1Disagree

26 May 2019 22:45:38
My ignorance invites me to be educated by someone who is less ignorant than me,

{Ed007's Note - I'll try and find someone that fits the bill and get back to you but I wouldn't hold out much hope.}

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 22:46:54
Bigbenny, my memory must be really, really bad.

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 23:12:35
Bigbenny, Deila couldn’t beat a poor Sevco team who scraped promotion from the second tier of Scottish football. I could have led Celtic to victory against that team of misfits. Lennon beat a Barcelona team that was, at the time, regarded as the best team in the world.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 16:42:37
hey ED your doing amazing job stay on it and thanks. i know your feelings about lenny hopefully that's the old lenny.
i also hope you are wrong, let's see what he does in the qualifiers, keep the site open you pretty neutral although hurting. i think we have got this we just need to keep momentum going.

{Ed007's Note - The site will stay open, Andy but it wouldn't be me running/editing it. I really can't see myself holding the same level of interest in Celtic with Lennon at the helm, if it wasn't for my nephews I'd cancel my season tickets. Going into my 10th season doing this and there's absolutely nothing at the Club to motivate me into spending my entire day keeping up with everything and editing the sites, I certainly won't be watching every game - I just can't put myself through watching that.
What is they say, when the fun stops, stop?}

Agree1 1Disagree

26 May 2019 17:42:34
Well for what it's worth Ed I hope you stay. I can understand where you're coming from though and it's your call. Just make sure you post as a member if you do decide to take a back seat as your insight and input us much appreciated.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, JT. I'll see what happens and how I feel over the next week or so.}

Agree1 1Disagree

26 May 2019 17:43:08
Gutted to hear that Bond, I went from elation to disappointment last night. Hoping he is not in to be Lawells beatch.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 18:14:25
You would be a huge loss to the page Ed. Totally understand though i'm trying to put a positive spin on the situation but if truth be told i am scunnered with our Board, again. So much so that i'll be taking my usual summer leave. I'll fire you an email soon regardless. HH.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah keep in touch mate and enjoy your summer.}

Agree2 1Disagree

26 May 2019 18:25:17
You too mate, take a wee time out then hopefully you might feel better about it.

{Ed007's Note - Maybe I'll wake up and it's all been a very bad dream lol.}

26 May 2019 18:48:15
I'm counting on it 😂.

{Ed007's Note - It worked for Bobby Ewing! 😁

26 May 2019 19:56:35
Feel for you Ed that this has put a damper, for you, in what should be a great time of celebration for all Celtic fans in creating history. HH.

{Ed007's Note - Look at the site over the last few months and since yesterday, would you give up 10-12 hours a day of your time for free to trudge through the complete drivel some people send in knowing it's only going to get worse next season with all the homo-erotic pish about Lennon being one of our own while we crash out the CL and domestic cups, get pumped in the EL and stumble over the line in the league playing turgid awful football?}

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 21:30:40
Ed007, better to move on if you feel that way. No point doing something if your heart is not in it. Could be worse, you could have just renewed two seats in the Walfrid, only to see NL getting the job!

{Ed007's Note - Luckily for me - and my nephews - it's my mum's money that renews 2 tickets in the South Stand every season. At least I won't spend an hour before every game looking for a stream next season.
I hope Mr Lawwell kept the banners to cover the empty seats, in these cost cutting days at the Club there's no need to buy new ones surely?}

Agree1 1Disagree

26 May 2019 21:56:22
I suggest a go fund you page page for all the hard work the ED'd put in FOC (Hopefully keep you carrying on the good work) .
You guys run with it week in week out for the love of the clubs you support and I'm sure all other readers/ posters appreciate you as I do.
I's clear you ain't in it for money, but it'd be good if you got some sort of reward for all the hard work and time you dedicate to this page. just my opinion but I'm sure many other would agree!

{Ed007's Note - It was never about the money for me mate. Even now Ed001 & Ed033 still struggle to cover the site fees etc when they could have sold out many times to regurgitate BS hit whoring stories for Sly (yes Sly have tried to 'buy' and influence the sites) or A N Other but that's one of the reasons why I've stuck at it for the past 9+ years. I have said numerous times that I think a Paypal donate button for those that can afford something to help Ed001 & Ed033 out would be great but there would be no pressure to give money, if you can throw in a fiver that's great but don't worry about it.
All the Eds put in the hours they can and I am just (un?)lucky enough that I can spend my days doing it because of my health situation while others have full time jobs and families to juggle.

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 22:10:21
If you leave Ed we will turn your entire house into a shrine to Lennon. Just remember we are all Neil Lennon.

{Ed007's Note - I think Yoda would have something to say about that! With his granny and brother staying over the back now I don't fancy your chances 😁

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 23:00:02
If you go Ed thanks for all your work, the site is a god send to Tim’s like me up here in Inverness. I really think we will be ok next season. I live in the hope that with a few good signings and the squad rejuvenated after their small break we can start all guns blazing and qualify for CL. Hail Hail to you Ed, YNWA.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 16:35:27
what guff on here about celtic football diets etc. have you seen our fitness level. fitness and nutrition go together to get best results FULLSTOP. celtic have this in abundance. celtic own the players they own everything about them that's what its all about these days players know this, .
so when top teams buy our players for top prices and pay for a fat unfit van Hooijdonk or wanyama to name a few no they buy them for what's celtic camp has done with them don't forget this. celtic make these players sharper fitter more positive, better team players and more healthy if celtic did not do this they would win nothing and sell non of them. just look at tierney calmac forrest ajer will i keep giong, celtic fc are doing a great job etc etc,

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2019 16:54:36
Our fitness levels are better due to the methods and practices installed by Ronny Delia. This has been continued into the Rodgers era. I think people are worried that now Lennon is back this aspect of the club will regress back to the way it was the last time he was in charge. I personally don't think this will happen.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2019 17:11:56
BigBubs the players have ALREADY been allowed to go on a two day bender in Dublin before the season was over. Before an important game where to be frank they looked awful. Doesn't look promising.

Agree3 1Disagree

26 May 2019 18:53:51
Yeah maybe not but in the grand scheme of things that game was meaningless. Should have just stuck the reserves on to show how irrelevant the "Old Firm" is. Would be more than happy if they went bust and disappeared for good this time 😂.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 20:55:09
Ed I totally agree with you mate I went from a state of total elation to desperation within hours. I am still gutted. This appointment is a huge mistake.

{Ed007's Note - Let's just hope it's not as huge as some of us fear, Marco.}

Agree0 1Disagree

26 May 2019 23:03:59
Jim Jim . The league was over 8 in a row was one . Players have been worked too hard by Rodgers, I don't think Rodgers took into account the very short break between seasons and the number of games played which created unprecedented injury lists and players looking out on their feet .
The two days in Dublin were not arranged by Celtic club, players often have a day or two off and some of the players took advantage to go to Dublin, others went to Norway, Scot Brown stayed at home . Winning a treble treble with the way the team was creaking meant no harm was done .
I prefer to rub Rangers2012 noses in dirt by regarding the game at end of March against Rangers2012.was a dead rubber of no significance.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2019 16:17:15
Hopefully Lennon will be offered a one week rolling contract Ed, lol

Hopefully you don't give up on the site because of the announcement. I for one would miss the witty comments like the one earlier. that was class.
Keep up the good work!

Agree2 0Disagree

26 May 2019 16:14:39
OK guys, let's deal with reality. Lenny has the job. He may not be the big name some of you were unrealistically hoping for but he is the new manager so please stop moaning and yapping about it and spreading negativity about how he's going to ruin 9 or 10 in a row.

Get behind him and give him your support and if you can't do that then at least keep your poisonous doom and gloom comments to yourself. Nothing you can say will change the appointment so get on with supporting your club. HH.

Agree4 0Disagree

26 May 2019 16:44:59
Never. ? Have you ever wondered why all the ex Rangers and servco players were backing him for the job? The board have asked us to open our legs out wide and booted us with size 10 boots on They are showing no ambition.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 16:53:03
So, on a forum which exists for people to express their opinion on Celtic, you're saying that folk should only be allowed to have an opinion if it fits your criteria?

Ok then.

Agree2 0Disagree

26 May 2019 17:21:26
Who me? No most certainly not I was just saying I will never back Lenny or the board on this appointment my opinion like you say I am expressing my opinion that's all.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 21:09:58
Every true celtic supporters opinion should be respected no matter the drivel other's think they speak opinion is exactly what it says on the tin and we are all entitled to one.

{Ed007's Note - Whether they're Celtic supporters or not morons shouldn't be allowed an opinion, that's how the country and our Club have ended up in the state they are.}

You know the appointment is wrong when the zombies are celebrating it more than us.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 23:10:32
The great thing about our forums the more you criticise, our Board, our Manager and your players, the better a Celtic supporter you are.
Don't allow anyone at Celtic to support or praise anyone connected to club .

Rangers2012 supporters are a bit rich criticising our manager who has played a role in 10 SPL victories, their manager slipped up the only time he got near a league .
And our fans are allowing them to gloat .
My God, we have some pathetic fans.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 23:31:55
The Zombies celebrated when they drew us in the cup last year. That didn’t work out too well for them as I recall.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2019 23:57:05
No JohnT77, I don't think that trying to remain positive is something that is reserved for me and nor should it be. Just like many others I'm not very chuffed about Lennon coming back permanently but what's the point in being negative about it? No-one at Celtic is going to give any thought to my feelings or yours or anyone else's because if the Board did listen then they'd have looked elsewhere. They have made a decision and even if we don't like it we need to accept that it is what it is. If the core principles of previous managers are kept to and Lennon can calm himself down a bit then we might be surprised. One thing that I did miss when he left the last time was the aggression in our team, guys who would bully the opposition and stand up to them in every challenge. We've been missing that wee edge in recent seasons and even though we have been successful since he went we weren't exactly shabby when he was here. He won the league for us 3 times, did reasonably well in Europe and whilst we flinched in the cups on occasions we all need to accept that cups are usually the icing on the cake for us. He has flaws and he has strengths so let's focus on the good bits and see where it takes us. HH.
