If Aberdeen had of tried playing football today they might have got somewhere

Hope, Don't think so. Celtic were always winning today, before they got a man sent off Celtic were in control of the game. I was nervous about the game but turns out there was no call to be nervous.

People talk about Lennon and bringing in other managers, the players are playing for him and he knows what he's doing. I get the feeling if he completes the treble it still won't be enough for some people, they're sitting just waiting to pounce the first time they're beaten.

I'm with you on Neal Lennon Celtic were lucky he was available when Brendan decided to skedaddle. Delighted he is still unbeaten, not easy jumping into the middle of things in them circumstances I also find Neal to be a very genuine likeable character.

Played very well today. It was the first real good performance under NL so hopefully it continues and the league is wrapped up in the next couple of games. BTW that challenge that resulted in Aberdeen’s second red card was a shocker.

Have to admit I was worried about today but didn’t need to be. 3 more wins to the treble treble

That game told nothing about Lenonn or Celtic, it was more about Aberdeen’s self sabotage.

I was more making comment on Aberdeen than Celtic, they just looked frustrated and bitter from the off more interested inputting the boot into the Celtic squad than playing for any sort of result

Police probe Burnley-Cardiff brawl'

http://www.skysports.com/share/11694644

... not that it was needed...but further evidence of fans behaviour in epl being way worse than spl

I believe flares were set off at Anfield. Imo it's no big deal, but it was like an isis bombing in the media when a Celtic fan let one off a couple of weeks ago!!

Thought Celtic did look like they were playing some great football , first time they've clicked under Lennon. Joao and Ajer bringing the ball up to create an extra man to contend with was a great ploy.
Yes Aberdeen self restricted but Celtic were playing them off the park and only aberdeens over physical tactical approach was keeping them in the game, until the ref started penalizing  them for it finally.
Great win. Well deserved. Edourard looking like hes returning to form. Any news on Christie?  Hope he is ok and will be back for the final.

I want to be proven wrong by Neil Lennon, great Celtic man but second comings can be difficult. Thought the ref on Sunday was poor he let Aberdeen away with tackles Chris Smalling would be proud of. Fergusons sending of was a direct result of him not been booked at least 3 times he thought he was untouchable.

I know people will say that i'm biased because i know NL personally but all i'm saying (not defending him) is give him a chance and if he doesn't take his chance and he's not up to the task then give him a few quid and thank him for his efforts and move him on...Simple. I'm a Celtic fan first and I want whats best for Celtic but i'm prepared to give NL a chance and see how he performs, what's annoying me is people don't want him for the job without letting the fella have a proper go (their minds were made up the first day he took over).

10 in a row is too near
we cant take chances at this stage.
sorry I have a lot of time for NL but we need to nail this one.

I'm not sure what you mean by that...
Is it, you can't take a chance so give NL the job or you can't take a chance on NL

The club is in a strong financial position and a should be able to identify those additions required to further bolster in certain positions which are outside the grasp of other SPL teams.  There’s a strong nucleus of players already there to see out 10IAR.

The players seem to want Lenny to stay and I wonder is it not even more risky bringing in a new broom where a potentially new playing style that takes time to bed in disrupts any momentum.  Surely 10IAR is a matter of sailing this ship home?  I’d be confident that Lenny could achieve that (wouldn’t care about another treble).

Hopefully Celtic do the 9 in a row next year and then push on for the magical 10 in a row the season after.

Most important thing is, as alluded to earlier, to invest to get the 10 in a row.  If they win the other 2 cups in 20/21, all well and good but full effort for the league.  That's everything!
