John Park needs to be re-signed, as quickly as possible. Allow him to just get on with his team, to spot talent, then bypass PL and go straight to DD, the money man with the final say.

What about Tom Boyd, a grown man who genuinely believes there's a conspiracy against us from the ref's. Cringey or what😂😂

Nah Tam, it's just wee Lennon is dug meat👍.

No conspiracy but what did beaton see it's a stick on pen like to know how it wasn't given and it's decision s like that that get people thinking.

John beaton is as bias as they come. Most of them are just rotten but he's a cheat.

For all the things Lennon has got wrong the last few weeks the ref ignoring a hand ball isn't one of them.

Same ref that ignored several assaults by moreles including a stamp on the back of our full back when he was 5 yards from it.

There’s a lack of transparency.
There might not be a conspiracy but there’s clearly some form of bias from some refs ie Beaton / Dallas
Certain things spring to mind however the game against Dundee Utd with Dougie McDonald, Cadetes paperwork scandal etc
I’m cynical to a conspiracy but if your an ex player like Boyd I’m guessing he’s a bit more in the loop with certain things.
No smoke without fire but eh?

What about Martin O'Neil for manager👍.

Way too auld and that style of fitbaw died long before the Rangers did Malky (Y)

Martin oneil would be a great dof but did we not just appoint one for this season?

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Aug 2019 19:12:25
Has to be better than the "style" of football we are playing the noo😂😂😂.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Aug 2019 19:38:41
That’s a good shout Paddy!
Not too old as a director of football is more of senior role in the club. His position would be between the manager and directors. He wouldn’t be coaching players so wouldn’t affect the style of football.

Martin O’Neill would be a great shout for Director of Football, he is too old and cleverin the head to be Peter Lawwell’s “Puppy” and is Lenny’s mentor and they would work well together as Lenny would trust his judgement when he needed advice and Nicky Hammond is only there for this transfer window anyway, might suit Martin to take a more senior role at this stage so could prove a good partnership.

When the eff is lenny going to give shved a run the boy must be wondering what going on yesterday was a perfect chance to get 90 mins in his legs. baffling.

Agree3 0Disagree

18 Aug 2019 14:41:45
To start with a left footed Johnston and playing him out of position on the right was baffling when Shved was there. It was a perfect opportunity for the Ukrainian.
Then Lenny swaps Johnston with another left footed Christie and plays him also out of position by playing him wide right was again baffling. Shved is also left footed but is suited to playing on the right side.

Well said.

Thought Johnstone was more right footed.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Aug 2019 16:06:05
Johnston is right footed.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Aug 2019 16:39:52
I thought he was left footed because he looks better on the left.
Maybe it wasn't such a bad decision then. 😳.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Aug 2019 17:41:45
Most teams are now playing left footers right and vice versa now a days.

Lennon being Lennon will not give a hoot about Shevd because he was already signed.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Aug 2019 18:48:55
He seems to have a problem with players outside the circle of 'rust'

Jamesy, I agree about trying to keep a level head but I don't see the point of mentioning what happened at this stage last year. Is not that one of the major reasons everyone is fumming as we have again repeated the same mistakes as last year not to mention various years prior to that i. e a repeated lack of PROPER investment on the playing side.

I am as frustrated as anyone about the way Lawwell and the board are running things but there seems to be a panic setting in among our support which could do more damage to our chances than anything our opponents can inflict.
2 weeks ago all the talk was about the amazing football we were playing, we had just put 7 past St Johnstone, before that we had put 5 past Nomme Kalju, and that was before we scored 5 at Motherwell last week.
I am not in any way downplaying the Cluj result but in my opinion it was mostly down to the team selection and tactics of the manager which cost us that game, and even allowing for those decisions we still scored 3 goals on the night.
A lot of people seem to be in a panic about Sevco, but don't forget that they were held to a draw in Luxembourg and needed a last minute goal to win at Kilmarnock, they're not Barcelona.
From my reading of the results so far, although we need a couple of players at the back, If Lennon plays the players in their correct positions and doesn't try to be clever with the tactics, we are a team that should easily be able to dominate this league.
We shouldn't panic every time Sevco win a match or bring in a player, we cannot influence that.
We have won three trebles in a row for a reason and that is because we have the best players in Scotland, if the manager stops trying to be clever and let the players do what they're good at then I don't think we will go far wrong, then we can look at what we need to get through the Champions league qualifiers.

Hard to argue with that Gerry, a LB and a RB and I think we need to have a look at the CDM, But Ajer is turning into a top top player who is comfortable in the tackle and clearly carrying the ball forward. That was his initial natural position and I for one would like to see him get a wee chance there . If we got another RB in Hemed can cover both RB and CH in the same way Lustig could

Them that take the training must see that in Ajer surely? They converted Wanyama from a CH to a CDM (Y)

I think panic is good at this stage because there is still time to rectify the damage.
Although we scored 12 goals, most fans could still see we were weak in a couple of positions.
If we had beaten Cluj and then got beat off Slavia, it would have only papered over the cracks and given the club less time to fix this mess.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Aug 2019 14:48:28
Wanyama was a central defender? Never knew that (N)

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Aug 2019 16:38:34
Lennon has no excuses he is solely to blame for that performance. Squad is good enough to have won game comfortably against a mediocre lower league side. It was his bad tactical decisions that took us to ET and crucially saw us nose dive out CL.

Sooner he is gone the better.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Aug 2019 17:48:32
Wanyama wasn't a central defender. His favourate position was centre mid though Lennon wanted him to be a cb but he quickly realised it wasn't going to work out.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Aug 2019 18:39:49
Deary me, When we scouted Wanyama on loan at Helsingborg he played CH we thought we COULLD make him into a CDM. At roughly the same time ( a year! ) We bought Efe who was a CDM

When Wanyama debuted for Celtic he debuted as a CH not his FAVOURED CDM just because that became HIS favoured position = and means he started out as a CH!

Then Efe who also could play wing back for his country had to be developed into a CH and in all reality was NEVER a CH! (Y)

It's not so much a panic as dread because we have seen these signs before (more than once) , of self-inflicted damage stemming from complacency, mistakes and stubbornness.
The Board see a full trophy room and see no need for improvement.
The manager has a list of transfer targets, which we fail to sign for one reason or another and the list is whittled down in quality and quantity, until we are scrambling around on the last day trying to beg steal or borrow a bargain or loan signing; - while a prize asset is annually stripped and sold for mega-bucks.
We now struggle to meet the challenge of CL qualification, because of a mixture of poor preparation personnel wise and timing, failing to bring in the quality early enough to make an impact.
While trying to negotiate a tough schedule of games domestic and European games before players are anywhere near their best.
Then we have the recurring human error, like the managers team selection, players mistakes/ hand-ball in the box and possibly underestimating a tricky opponent because of an away 1-1 draw?
