Few called it right about the changes last night. The boys played amazing. I hated it when our old manager did this as we struggled but it's like we are all on the same page so that says the system set in place by everyone working at Celtic we are all the same page so great news.

{Ed007's Note - I said on the live chat last night that I don't mind admitting that apart from the Cluj game I have been pleasantly surprised & impressed with Lennon and they way we're playing, the recruitment & the new signings and just the general feeling around the Club - even Lawwell and the board eventually stepped up and done their part in the window.
The CL has been Lennon's only failure and even though it was a pretty huge mistake I'm not holding it against him.}

Refreshing to hear ed cluj was his only mistake a wish a few more would admit they were may be too hasty in writing him off.

{Ed007's Note - I'm still not happy with the appointment and I won't be buying a Lennon calendar next year but he has done well and improved the quality of football, which wouldn't be hard compared to Rodgers last 18 months. I still think the board should have at least looked around instead of taking the cheap option.
I don't think anyone wrote him off as such, there's a long way to go this season and you can't say the doubters were totally wrong - Lennon and his decisions cost us the CL spot which was his first real test/job/task.}

Well said ED 🤔
I was just judging him by his last time as manager I thought gd things. This time I thought he will be gd mainly IMO he really knows what the club means, he also seems different keeping his cool hope that continues as if the manager panics some players panic etc .
Yep the Cluj game maybe we can get some comfort in destroying them soon. He Lenny has stepped in big shoes and I think he's done cracking. Your also right ed there is a gd feeling and now I don't dread when we play defensive teams
I hope for Celtic players and the fans also Lenny that this continues what a start he has had. Will update you Ed and lads on Celtic TV 🍀💪.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

Up till now he's done fine . they wtote him off before the window was even closed all his signings were duds now they're all great we even had a Lennon out campaign it was all nonsense and I am still waiting for a better option then him bilic has won nothing and some wanted the Dutch boy at derby jeez where would we be if one of them got the job.

{Ed007's Note - Where we are but still in the CL?}

fair point mally
i was the one trying to reassure few on here to stay positive and check out lennons past history which is pretty gd as a manager.
i think it was the celtic board who created hysteria they where a disgrace not caring if we win anything thinking short term money it seemed the fans cared more and lenny was an option but they got lucky lenny finished the job rodgers and the board could not do but hey they did not care but dodged a disaster.
we where
* top of the league
*rangers game coming up
*cup final
* our major players injured
* rodgers walked at the worst time ever what manager walks at this point in the season a manager who could not care one iota about us he walked for money the board let him walk for 8/ 9 million yep a lot of money but lennon had a moutain to climb yes he did it for the fans etc but this all could have went the other way.
some fans saying lennon will be a puppet he won't stand up to the board there was no evidence of this.
now fast forward to now look at the backing lenny got the money we have spent and spent well. The players we got look impressive. i don't think we have missed tierney so far or boyata etc but remember they where out injured anyway so far its workout.
EDs point about cluj game is fair i also thought they where lucky talk about your team playing there best game of there season this one was clujs.
i would love us to go all the way in Europa league and i definitely don't thing its a poor mans porche league lot of top teams there who lost there leagues by one or two points this went on a lot longer than i wanted but i was flowing lolsetc.

For me, the worst part about Cluj wasn't the poor team selection (these things happen) but Lennon's refusal to admit he made a mistake. Whether or not he ever admits that doesn't matter now as long as he's learned from it. I've been very pleasantly surprised as well, last Thursday being a prime example. No longer going into Europe with trepidation.

Good post Andy. look it was ridiculous they had panned his signings and they hadn't seen them what s that all about it was just to have a pop at the man it's a form of bullying thankfully he's done well and shut a few up.

Yes we threw the Cluj game away also bit of bad luck and thinking the game was won. Also they have since done pretty well and beaten Lazio away so no mugs and no shame they were just an unknown quantity and have announced their arrival. We hopefully won't be so suprised by the way they play next time obviously Dan Pet. is no mug as a manager and was a very decent player in his time. However I am happier personally now with the way the team is playing and the depth of the squad than I have been for quite a long time. The way we are playing is much more pleasing to watch, very enjoyable. F@@k rodgers into the 25th century. biddy biddy biddy. In Lenny we must trust!

If some people had their way and lennon was sacked after Cluj then who would we have went for? easy to say lennon wasn't the answer but he is doing a great job. Rodgers didn't get us to champions league last season and i don't recall anyone calling fo his head, and his results in europe were generally shocking, also we are better to watch right now domestically as we are scoring goals and playing well. Nobody who wanted rid of lennon seems to have come up with a better alternative! Lennon also has a far better eye for a player than rodgers as just look at some of the duds he signed.
