There are absolutely no excuses why the positions that need filled currently aren't.
The club have had months to find, identify and recruit the right candidates.
Anyone who wants to make the excuses of it takes time are kidding themselves on.
They have dragged there heels on every major decision this season and from the outside, look to be doing the same on these matters.
No excuses get it done.

{Ed007's Note - What if they're currently in a job? Do you think say Enzo Maresca would be willing to walk away from winning Man City their first Under-23 title in years, wouldn't that make him just as big a rat as Rodgers? Roy Keane's got a very generous contract at Sky - which would hit him financially if he left and sour his relationship with them - and could easily be working behind the scenes on taking over.
Just because there's nothing being made public doesn't mean things aren't moving forward or even in place and just need to be announced.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Remember after wim left it took us months before Dr Jo took over, and we were getting slaughtered for it.

Yes but why no Dof. if that position was filled then at least the fans would see progression and an attempt to move the club forward.
Fair enough about a manager.
But this board have just shown how in the football department atleast, there decision making and timing on matters is questionable at best and incompetent at worst.

{Ed007's Note - Maybe new DOF is currently in a job, maybe the new DOF is already working with the Club behind the scenes and making plans? Again, just because things aren't in the public domain doesn't mean there's nothing happening.}

Ed you make very good points and I dearly hope you are correct apart from the Roy Keane part Lol.

{Ed007's Note - Keane would be a success with the right assistants & coaches around him.}

14 Mar 2021 13:41:45
Ed people are allowed to hand there notice in and take up other jobs.
We will disagree on this this one.
They need to get it done.
This board have filled the squad with loan players, players running there contracts down and players in the last year of there contract.
They need to press the button on things and make them happen.
It's obvious there are working behind the senses but there are no excuses. lennons job was under threat from August. The new dof has been floated since at least BR.

{Ed007's Note - There's nothing to disagree over, football isn't like any other job when it comes to contracts etc Technically NL would have needed to give us a year's notice if he wanted to move on, we needed to give the LSE 6 months notice that Lawwell was leaving. Look how much we got from Leicester because Rodgers upped and left without any notice being given.
And what if the people are currently working their notice? Just because we don't know what's going on doesn't mean they aren't moving forward.}

Too old school for me I except there would be pluses and minuses with his appointment but from a football side alone I would say no we need a modern thinking established manager IMO.

14 Mar 2021 13:59:59
I'd be shocked if plans weren't well underway for next season, whether that's simply an agreement with a DOF who is liaising about or doing background work.

14 Mar 2021 14:02:29
As much as we are all angry about how this season has went. It's ridiculous to think the club aren't working on these issues behind the scenes. We are a club that tries to do our business quietly. Would you rather we rushed both appointments and had another rubbish show next year? Sure we would get a running start with appointing both positions now but what would be the benefit if they are the wrong appointments? Honestly it's so frustrating reading this site with the petulant impatience. This is a critical change in the club's hierarchy and needs to be carried out with due care and consideration.

I think we could do worse than keano The more time that passes I coming round to thinking why not Old school dinosaur comments I don't really get Can't ever see a Celtic team perform as poorly as Glasgow derby debacle at home under him Players like julien barkas and eddy all need rocket and if can't accept criticism from someone of his ilk. Shouldn't be there . am I only person who thought julien could easily have avoided running into post? Is football really that different over decades. 11 players v 11 players. Could almost guarantee we be fitter and hungrier Seems like could be right time He seems little bit wiser maybe previous jobs too early for him after stopping playing at the very highest level under one of Scotland's best ever bosses and assistant to mon so I would say his tactical knowledge very aware I can't see us going down "modern day manager " route whatever that actually means Some guy winning under 23 league with best youngsters in world? I'd take keano all day.

SOS-Bhoy - Like you I am certain that the board are working on getting a new manager in ASAP.

However, I do question the fact that they did not have someone lined up as Lennon's dismissal had been on the cards for a while.

14 Mar 2021 17:30:16
LAW, the whole situation was absurd! He should have been let go a lot earlier. It made no sense to let him go when they did. All we can hope for is that they make better decisions going forward. Complacency and arrogance cost us 10 in a row. Let's hope it doesn't happen again.
