You clearly canít be objective either. Went to Bolton who clearly werenít up front to him about their financial situation, still kept them up despite the sinking ship (20th in the 4th tier of English football right now in case youíre wondering) Took on Hibs in the Championship, left them promoted and in Europe. And technically left by mutual consent from both clubs. So letís be up front, he does has some clout outside his Celtic achievements.

Now, Iím not denying he has failed to demonstrate any tactical nous in what should have been winnable games in the here and now; and he doesnít exactly fill me with confidence right now, but I donít see any point in giving him the boot this early and expecting some magician to swoop in and clean up the mess. I think Celtic fans have had it too easy in the last few years and the Rangers are pretty much up to speed and no longer the the laughing stock they were. Failure to secure 10IAR will be unforgivable but I think the club need to persevere with Lennon for the time being. But heís on his last legs without doubt

I am objective. I have nothing personal against him, it's just clear as day that the job is too big for him and he's not up to it.

The club need to get rid ASAP, the performances this season have been abject, the exit out of the CL was humiliating. We need to be proactive rather than reactive.

Havenít posted since Saturdayís debacle, absolutely no fight no game plan and no leadership shown on the field or on the sideline, on the Lennon issue its clear heís lost some of the passion that heís renown for and  some players are just going through the motions, can Lennon turn this around? Iím not sure but the next few weeks are critical in terms of the 10 in a row, big improvements needed immediately!!

I'm not going to discuss whether NL should get sacked or not any more because it's gobshites like Angela (keyboard warriors) who get people the sack. The same people who if they were to meet NL would be the back slapper and well done men but have the knife in when he turns his back.

Things are bad and i'm not going to deny that and if NL stays for another 5 years or he goes tomorrow won't change how i feel about the club i've followed for 40 years but one thing i'm not going to do here is panic. We win our game in hand and we're ONE point behind (yes...one). Things need to improve and the next 2 weeks will show us if the players are playing for NL or not as another defeat in the league soon and it's prob curtains. The worrying thing is we have Ac Milan on Thurs nite and they beat Inter at the weekend and could give us a hiding too, this game has come at the wrong time...

Yellow card for Lennon, according to Phil.

Would sticking a poster of Edwin Poots in the changing room help?

Haven't felt this low for a while regarding following Celtic and i've this really bad feeling in my stomach that it's going to get worse (hope that's just nerves). The nights of the big wins in Europe seem to be over so don't hold out much hope tonight for a result (although it would be some morale boost for Sun if we picked something up). Sunday's fixture away to Aberdeen is a real crunch match and TBH could go either way, I dunno how things are going to pan out but 7 outta the next 9 fixtures are away from Celtic Pk so by Thurs 3rd Dec which we are away to AC Milan we'll certainly know how our season is going to be defined.

Not bursting with confidence atm, regarding manager...screw the cups and Europa league def need to get the 10 and this is going to be the toughest yet by the way things have went so far. Unless NL wins everything he enters then it's a certainty this season will be his last from either his own personal stance or the clubs.

im the same, ive zero appetite for this game tonight really any other year id prob be on my way to the airport after a few beers and buzzing for the game. I actually think that covid and the lack of fans has added to my apathy for this season ive watched games and struggled to keep my attention, as the saying goes football without fans is nothing. I look at Saturday and I cannot believe that if there were 60k Celtic fans there the players would have been allowed to perform as badly as that.

For tonight, I was thinking play a shadow side and build for Aberdeen at the weekend but now im thinking get the strongest team as possible out and try and put in some kind of performance and get some positives for the weekend.

I don't think Lennon is the man but ive calmed down a bit and accepted he's here for the foreseeable so hopefully e get a reaction this week and get back on the wagon, but another performance as pathetic as the weekend in the next few weeks and he really will be under big pressure.

I couldnít care less about Europe. The only thing I cared about this year was 10 in a row and I donít think itís going to happen. Rangers are much improved (although theyíre still shite) and theyíre getting better. Big improvements are needed ASAP.

This is poor,Aberdeen away on Sunday is more important and theyíre gonna fancy their chances, so many sub standard performances
