I am ashamed and disgusted by the latest actions of those who are "win only" supporters.
Yes the results recently have been poor but so have the players.
NL has maybe been too faithful and supportive of some of them.
He has also had to contend with C.V. and players being grounded, injuries and internationals disrupting any chance for players to settle.
I don't often write to the club but (I assume this was the correct contact address) I have contacted the club supporter liason officer.

I have supported the club through thick and thin (seen them beaten by Third Lanark)
I just want to say that the pathetic and juvenile actions of the "privileged supporters" who call themselves the Green Brigade is not supported by myself.
They should be ashamed by their actions which are an embarrassment to Celtic FC and are making us a laughing stock.
I hope you are able to pass on my support for the current manager who, among other things, has delivered 5 of the 9 titles already won not to mention the silverware collected in the process.
I hope the Board are wise enough to remember that if they agree to the GB request then they are setting a precedent for future demands along the way.

I don't agree with morons injuring police and throwing missiles at the players but the time is up for NL and has been since he threw his players under the bus after our Champions League.

NL is rightly a legend at the club and deserves to be remembered as one. I don't blame him for not walking away. Like most of us he will have bills to pay and a family to support.

The players don't deserve to get away with it either. There will be players in that squad that should never play for us again. The board should also be held accountable for the amateurish way NL was appointed to letting this s**t show get to this point.

Well said T, the GB don’t represent me either
Let’s see if you receive a reply.

The board acting on behalf of the fans should be a precedent for the future TT. If you think the vast majority of Celtic fans don't want Lennon out then you're delusional. As I said last night, the neds who went and threw missiles or made disgusting threats should hang their heads in shame but Neil Lennon should not be our manager. He should never have survived the first Sparta game. Since then, the anger among the support has really boiled over because a blind man could see it's not getting any better. Celtic Football Club don't have a given right to win any game of football but if we had removed Lennon; yesterday, Thursday and last Saturday could have been much different. That's what's upset a lot of supporters, the blind faith of some regardless of the evidence of their eyes. Hearts ruling heads. When the time comes that you're not even surprised at a 4-1 doing off an average Sparta or a humbling from Ross County at home then it's time for drastic change.

As a 'more mature' Celtic supporter, I have never felt like this in nearly 60 years watching Celtic.
I was never comfortable with Neil Lennon's second appointment, for various reasons; but have accepted the opinions and decisions of those in charge of the club we love and support in the belief we all have the same objectives, affection and ideology.

I have seen many managers come and go, The - Legendary, Charismatic, Average, Unfortunate and Unsuccessful; but never before have I seen a manager hounded, hated and abused publicly, mob-handed, by crazed fanatics.
The last protest as I recall was in '94 when the 'Brian Dempsey rebels' ousted The Kellys and Wee Fergus was installed, but even then I don't remember any such aggression or fury by supporters?

We were all unhappy with the current situation and I agree there have been a unique set of extenuating circumstances and hurdles. The lack of supporters in stadia probably prolonged frustrations longer than it should have, leading to these events but hindsight is a wonderful thing. The violence and hysteria solves nothing, as the players that have let the fans down week after week will still be here next game and the one after that; Meantime what 'Messiah' manager would want to take this on after watching our meltdown.

Who would be your replacement for Lennon Kevbhoy?

30 Nov 2020 10:30:11
Spot on, but not just Neil Lennon to blame, who is responsible for some of the players brought in, defenders made of glass.

30 Nov 2020 10:48:32
Desperate times calls for desperate measures.
I agree the scenes were OTT.
But I can understand why the fans have felt the need to demonstrate.
What will it take for Lennon to get sacked?
I don’t blame Lennon for the result yesterday because he shouldn’t have been in the dugout.
I mentioned a few days ago the results are now on the boards head,
For as long as Lennon is still the manager.

Those pesky gb. didn’t know they had so many members.

{Ed007's Note - I don't know what's more embarrassing, the behaviour of the idiots last night or the supporters that are blaming The Green Brigade. I doubt that Tiny Tim will get a reply but if it was me I'd be asking him - once I stopped laughing at his letter - for any proof he has that GB members were involved in any of the trouble.}

@1967stephen I'd like to see us show some ambition and pay the money for a manager who's currently performing well at another club. If we're going down the out of work route I'd take Eddie Howe. He's shown a real ability to progress a team (bottom of League 2 to EPL in 6 years) and be able to adapt to a higher level each time. Highlights being winning the Championship and keeping Bournemouth in the EPL for 4 seasons - achieving a top half finish on at least one occasion. For me, it's all relative and if he can get a tiny club like Bournemouth believing in themselves and performing greater than the sum of their parts then he can get a tune out of our underperforming players. The reason I've gone into depth about Howe is because a lot of our support dismiss him out of hand, in my opinion due to football snobbery. But at the end of the day there's a man skimming the guys of about £70k a week (which we apparently can't afford to pay a player) whose job it is to make that call and should have done so weeks ago.

Third Lanark is that not a train station? Lol.

30 Nov 2020 11:58:01
@Ed007, exactly Ed, who has proof that was the G. B. last nigh, people making assumptions, does my head in.

{Ed007's Note - Yep, no outcry at all about the drunken rabble of "normal" fans that reminded me of the time the Klan stormed Ibrox and attacked staff - no, it was all the big bad GB's fault without a single shred of evidence.}

30 Nov 2020 12:00:11
Dry as ever, Ed :)

I imagine many of us can see something of ourselves in Neil Lennon. He doesn't have the airs and graces of your modern sophisticate and, especially as our primadonnas became accustomed to one of the smoothest of the smooth talkers, they were perhaps unlikely to appreciate what he might be able to bring in terms of sincerity. Not the man's fault: he has really gave it his best shot, with none of the "immaturity" that the media used to like to accuse him of. He seems to be beginning to realise it isn't panning out tho. Thanks for your service, Neil, please come back for the celebrations when we wind up the 10.

{Ed007's Note - 😁

Storming their Player of The Year awards ceremony was another good laugh.

I'm not in the Green Brigade and I want Lennon out, fingers crossed the board listen to the majority of fans and sack Lennon today! Win only supporters? Are yous saying being embarrassed in Europe, the League Cup and the League is acceptable? The players are performing poorly due to Lennon and the fact they don't want him as manager! It's clear something has happened and once Lennon is deservedly sacked then I'm sure we will find out exactly what happened.
