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 Disagree1

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.}

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 😂😂😂😂

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.}

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.

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.}

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.

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

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.

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.

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.}

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.}

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.

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. 😂😂😂😂😂.

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.

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?

27 May 2019 09:23:59
Media reporter ‘Were there many applications for the job’?

Football chairman ‘There were a number of applications but realistically, there was only one candidate. ’

You don’t care about our performance off the pitch. Hmmm, let me think of another club whose supporters took that view 🤔. No wait, it’s coming to me.

Finally, Bulls**t Brendan is almost certainly a better manager than Neil Lennon. Leicester’s money was well spent. Despite the fact that I lost respect for Rogers, I recognise that we were very lucky to have his services for a couple of years. If you think we can regularly attract managers of that calibre you are delusional beyond anything over at the crumble dome.

27 May 2019 11:19:43
Realistically one candidate doesn't wash with me at all. I have no doubts that we can attract a better manager than NL. We chose not to. I'll just leave it at that.

29 May 2019 00:58:14
I suppose none of us realise how difficult it is to get a Manager to come to manage Celtic . The last thing the Board needed was for a Manager so disinterested and so fed up with managing us that he walked away with his team on the verge of an unprecedented treble treble to manage a mid table team in another league .
Any chance the Board had of getting a big named manager went with Rodgers . There was no big named manager with Celtic or Scottish connections that the Board and D D could work on . All the named people who were allegedly interested in job would have spoken to Rodgers . He would have spoken of the bias and bigotry . He would have spoken of our great support and how demanding we are always.
Board may have found it hard enough to fill job and didn't want a long delay which would have been disastrous, so they appointed Lennon .
I am not claiming the above to be exactly right, but I have little doubt filling the position wasn't easy and D D and Board appointed best they thought was right.
