Interesting analogy; John, an Irishman born in England stood up and protested against the occupation
Neil, a traitor born in Ireland legitimised British rule in Ireland and enabled the murder gangs which committed the 'genocide' John spoke of.
That has got to be the most disgusting post i've ever read on here,does that sentiment apply to every Catholic who has represented 'Norn Iron' at any level,or is it just your bile for one man?

Yeah, it's that difficult experimental fifth album after three triple platinums and just a few sales way from a fourth triple platinum.

Playing the tunes by numbers and just changing the arrangement a wee bit and adding some different lyrics.

To get with Lennono's vibe - The Beatles called it right when they split. The Stones couldn't create a tune worthy of note after the 60's and became a caricature of themselves.

Celtic have to bring in a brass section and start using some melodies and harmonies. They need a lead guitarist that wants to rock and they need a front man who's all about getting high on coke and goals

What a thing this football lark is ?

The only thing that can make otherwise reasonable and responsible adults collectively lose their shit and perspective on life.

And would we ever have it any other way?

If I cared as much about ex-wives, then at least two of them wouldn't have been exes (but now I've confused myself because if the first of those two wouldn't have been an ex, then there couldn't or shouldn't have been a second ex in the first instance?)

If it's been said once on this site, it's been said a million times this season.

There is something wrong from root-to-branch with Celtic this season.

I don't know if the board have sanctioned signings without consulting the manager. The lack of action the new signings have had would suggest that Lenny doesn't rate them. He may have a point but we wouldn't know because we haven't fucking seen enough of them to form an opinion? We know that Lenny inherited a backroom staff, but how much involvement did he have in recruiting WGS II? There never appears to be a great deal of communication between Lenny, Kennedy and WGS II and Strachan seems to be socially socially distanced from the other two. Forget about two late goals today - there does look like there is a fitness and sharpness issue. It might not be quite as bad as the Tyrone triathlete's analysis might suggest, but neither is he missing by a mile either. The team look sluggish and lack intensity and energy. They about shake themselves out of their slumber when they go a goal down, but recently they've been having a long lie and waiting till they're two down before looking like they might give a shit. It's really very poor.

If there is not a divide in the coaching staff, then they're doing a damn good job of appearing anything but a united bench.

Then there's the team itself.

For any of his managerial/coaching/motivational shortcomings, even Lenny cannot be fully accountable for the ponderous play, basic errors, lack of drive and motivation. Even if Lenny is the worst manager in Christendom - that still doesn't explain how highly paid professional footballers can strike so many bum notes and chords.

Fucking Klopp or Guardiola wouldn't be able to legislate for Broonie's rush of blood to the head today, but that's only one in a series of calamities various members of the team have offered this season.

Celtic played with a defence today that didn't actually have a defender in it. Frimps and Laxalt are forward thinking wing backs at best. Bitton and Ajer are converted midfielders. Their positioning, reactions and responses are not those who have dedicated a lifetime to defending. They all ball watch and can't read basic threats. That's unfair to Laxalt who has been an absolute star since he arrived though.

The midfield is a mess. No cohesion. No link-up. You can drive a bus through them at times. Nothing remotely creative and most weeks, each one of them go looking for a safe space to hide in. Broonie can't play in high intensity big games. CalMac looks bereft of confidence and isn't playing with his head up. N'tcham - enough said. Rogic needs regular competitive games, but has been a bright spot. Turnbull, Soro and any other name you care to mention - well who the fuck knows? There's been more sightings of actual little green men from Mars than there has been of those little green men from Parkhead this season.

Elyounoussi - well he can't beat a man. He can't go on the outside. He can't play a killer pass and he doesn't fully commit to getting in the box when an opportunity is created from the other side. His goal return looks decent, but it's a convenient cloak to hide his other sins.

Christie is really doing my head in just now. He's another one who can't actually beat a man but shows great deftness of foot in actually beating himself. His delivery is woeful and Lenny requires a slap for believing that Corpus is ever going to deliver a decent set-piece. I don't know who told him that he's the St Mary's Messi, the Caledonian Christiano or the Gallowgate Gareth Bale, but he isn't the world beater he believes he is and he needs a boot up the arse and told a few home truths.

Eddy/Griff/Ajeti/Klimala any one of those is feeding on scraps in games. Eddy and Ajeti mainly play musical statues and have decided not to make any incisive runs and that it's better to play with their back to goal. Griff needs games and Klimala has more rough edges than my entire collection of ex-wives, but there's something to work on for the future there.

Harsh words and I haven't even mentioned the board yet, but I'm likely to go into anaphylactic shock with the amount of stinging they've done and the amount of nuts there too.

There's something amiss throughout the whole operation and no one at Celtic Park seems to know how to solve the problem.

They need to come up with solutions yesterday as we're getting really close to that point of no return. At this rate, the league could be a bogey by the end of the next game with that mob and that doesn't even bear contemplating.
Spot on sp with a brilliant post.
For me lennys job as a manager is to hold the whole club together to keep the harmony and unity together, and sorry to say he is failing badly in his duties to date this season.
He may well be keeping a board happy with the failure of a team that keeps a insolvent sevco in business.
He is failing the support by crushing our dreams of the 10iar.
He is failing within the changing room with his organisation and team affairs and team don't seem to be responding to whatever instructions he is trying to set.
So for me he is failing on 2 out of the 3 counts which is causing to much unrest within our camp.
I do believe now lenny has no longer got the ability to lead us to a 10iar.
Will I be happy with landing a quad treble and maybe another cup this season? Sorry but no, and yes I do remain a greedy bastard.
For me as I see it, is all about timing now and when and if a board are prepared to make that change in order to salvage this season.
But do we deprive lenny that chance of landing the quad and his first proper treble?
If any change was to take place then it has to be now or I fear any later could be to late.
If not now, then we have to keep the faith that he can turn things around, but signs are not good especially when you publicly start calling players out.
The longer this shitshow continues the bigger the revolt will be as the board are very much on thin ice also.
Big big decisions are needed, we will wait and see what the powers to be decide
