Lennon didn't do himself any favours with his after match interview. He should just have said we underperformed in every area of the park and deserved nothing from the game. Congratulations to the opposition.

The worrying statistic is that's the last 3 times now that we've played them and they've played us off the park. That's not luck.

Cant make my mind up if Gerard just has Lennon out thought or if we've made them look good today. For me they weren't great but we were abysmal and worse heartless.

Unsure if they have the best team but they just might have the better manager.

Now have a question mark over Neils ability to achieve the 10 or whether he'll even survive this result. Not good enough today by a long long way. If that was a fight they won every round. The game was lost in the dugout for me before a ball was kicked.

That is a thoughtful, top class post.

Thanks Lubo 👍 A sore one today for all of us. Not just the defeat but the manner in which we accepted defeat. God Bless.

They have a game plan and are tactically aware than us, it was plain to see.

Neil Lennon always seemed more of a motivator than a tactician and this has been apparent with a lot of his team selections and substitutions since he took over.
We got away with it because we had a decent talented team that knew as long as they played well, all domestic opposition was beatable.
Our premature exits from the CL three years running have shown a lack of fitness, preparation and the ability to change games.
However, our weak domestic league papered over the cracks.

Now any motivation has completely evaporated and whenever we run out of ideas or find ourselves in difficulty, we don't see any encouragement, direction or instruction from the dug-out, only sideways glances to Kennedy, blank looks and worried expressions.
Substitutions are often questionable, mystifying or too late and only rarely make any difference, like at St Johnstone with Griff.
So what does he do today, he keeps Griff on the bench until late in the game to replicate his match-winning heroics?

Today we were outfought and outthought by a hungrier, by a more organized manager and team - not a better team man-for-man.
However, the teamwork and winning mentality is with them, while we look dishevelled and disjointed with players who either don't want to be here or have lost the appetite and desire to play for NL, the club and the support - who seem out of sight out of mind?
OK it's early in the season, but if we are totally honest we all saw this coming and we will see more of the same as long as he never learns from doing the same mistakes every single time.
We are all hurting and angry, even though some of the players don't feel the same as us; NL is a Celtic Man through and through, it takes a Big Man to do the right thing for the good of the club.

JFP I was on the phone to my brother at half-time and made the same point about the game being gone before a ball was kicked.

We were discussing Neil Lennon's pre-match interview. He looked completely deflated and unenthusiastic. It was more like an pre-match interview following a defeat.

I get that he was annoyed the team was leaked, and rightly so, but I thought it was telling. What must his team talk have been like? If his mood was like that in the dressing room he was hardly in a position to fire up the players, not that they should need it.

A snake rots from the head down.
