Regardless if you want Lenny as manager or not his press conference today was outstanding, every minute of it. One thing is for sure whether it be years ago or now he always sticks up for our club, every inch of it.

What was he saying Stan? I never saw it.

What he said was spot on. The negativity is ridiculous.

16 May 2019 22:09:36
You can watch it on Youtube - Celtic Tv IC. He's backed the players achievements, backed Broony, was asked about Sevco statement and refused to comment said we are above all that we're just busy enjoying the week and looking forward to picking up trophies. 13 mins worth so there's other bits n pieces it's worth a watch.

I’ll check it out

watched it and enjoyed it earlier today.
he spoke open and he was right we won the league start showing some gratitude. we had a weird year judas dumping us injuries etc but still, he put the media on the spot and i think he got them off-guard, as they knew he was right HH.

I enjoyed his interview and I still believe if Lenny gets the job full time, he will lead us to 10 in a row. I had the privilege to be in his company a couple of years ago and he is a character and a half. It was obvious what the club means to him and I feel he has that winning mentality and steel about him to drive the club, to where we want to be in these next 2 years.

He also makes a very good point about the fact that out of the 14 leagues we’ve won since 2000, he’s been involved in ten of them. I think it’s incredible that any Celtic supporter could say that they’d be unhappy with him as the manager. In fact it saddens me.

One thing I like is that given a transfer window, he likes players to have quality but also have physical ability.

Signed players in this era were like Van Dijk, Wanyama, Hooper, Izzy, Lustig, Ledley etc

Guys who could play but could also be physical.

For me Rodgers era was based on guys being considered great footballers based on the fact they could pass a ball short or backwards.

De Vries was considered a challenge for Gordon cos he could pass, yet couldn't save a shot.

So for me I'd like to see a return to having a bit of physicality in the middle. Whoever the next manager is.

COYBIG, you are correct, it is very sad.
If another manager was to get the job and has a bad result, the fans would be shouting to give him a chance because he is only new and it takes time but Lenny would get pelters from the same fans, which he doesn't deserve.
My fear would be if Lenny got the job full time, the negativity from some fans towards him, would drag us all down and put unnecessary extra pressure on him and the team and at the same time give sevco hope.
Celtic fans need to be faithful through and through to one of our own Neil Lennon.

His comments about the 90's are spot on! . Many younger fans have been used to us lifting trophy's. For years we won nothing and 🎼Always look on the bright side of life🎵 chant still makes me laugh. No matter who is appointed they will always have my 100% backing. 🍀.

Tesla369 if your going to mention the good why not mention the bad of Lennons reign?


And that's just a few. For every good player Lennon signed I think there was a ratio of 6 bad players to 1 good player.

Your argument is very 1 sided.

17 May 2019 07:09:12
I'm not crediting Lennon with directly signing every player in his era as I highly doubt he watched Mexican, Dutch, Israeli football etc all at the same time.

However my point is that with the squad he had, he liked to select a starting 11 with physicality through the middle.

As for signings, we made poor ones before Lennon. Guys like Adam virgo up until guys like de Vries under Rodgers.

As I always say. You go cheap then we will get extremely poor signings regardless of manager. Even if it's mourinho. Just the nature of the policy.

17 May 2019 07:53:15
Highlighting the good does not necessarily make an comment one sided. I think we all know that every manager has signings that don’t work out and for that reason, it makes more sense to focus on the successes. Van Dijk and Wanyama are probably two of the most spectacular in the clubs history.

17 May 2019 17:10:20
COYBIG your wrong, it is one sided when the poster has a dig at Rodgers signing de vries and fails to mention any good signings he has made such as Dembele.

Tesla369 you still fail to highlight any bad signings Lennon made. He made some absolute howlers, possibly some of the worst signings ever to wear the green and white. Here's another to add to list No Bangura.

17 May 2019 17:12:54
COYBIG also focussing on successes is just pampering over the cracks and that attitude is what will send us back the way rather than progress.
