Sack the board, sack the manager and sack all the players, and breatheeeeeeee. Bit of perspective, it's 3 points regardless of opposition (irritating that it's them) but all our ails are self inflicted. We have good football players and we ALL know that because we know from experience what they are capable off, regardless of some wanting to scapegoat individuals. So, the problem lies with how they are being deployed (surely can't all be off form at the same time) and that is the sole responsibility of the manager.
If he is unwilling, unable or incapable of making the necessary changes to reverse things, then he should be removed. He still has time to alter this, but what's on offer at the moment is clearly not good enough.
Our club used to be famed for our attacking flare, now we play like a mid 80s Italian outfit and we're not even very good at that.
We will still win the 10, just making bloody hard work of it.

I wish I shared your optimism Chas.

What else is there? 🤷.

The reason for the focus always being on our defence is that we don't attack enough.

chasaboy

1.) 17 Oct 2020 15:37:27
And because we have players on defense who can't actually defend.


2.) 17 Oct 2020 16:22:50
Best form of defence is attack . Because we don’t give any teams anything to think about, their focus is on what to do to us. We used to alway score more than the opposition even if we lost a few. Now we don’t even make chances.

We defend as a team so don't think you can single out defenders.


It has been stated on this forum countless times, by more than one poster that the weakness of the 3-5-2 is that you are open to the ball over the top into the channels, as was proven today.

Too often our wing backs were exposed or taken out the game, thus leading to our CBs being pulled out of position and it should be pointed out that our midfield were not helping out enough to cover when this happened.

We don’t defend at all. We are static all over the park. We are slow, predictable and very easy to set up against and have been for a long time. And as a unit we have not improved despite the new players. And being honest, we have got out of jail on more than a few occasions.

Been thinking it for a long time hoping it would change but Lennon has sucked the life out of this team .

1.) 17 Oct 2020 15:39:42
He has. its not good to witness

Still a hero . but our hero is at a crossroads

He should go. or will he be politely asked to step aside for someone more progressive?

He will not he a long term manager get Strachan in for remainder of season and let's grind this out and then Eddie Howe for start of next season.


2.) 17 Oct 2020 16:38:08
We can't be sure its as simple as that, but the management need to look at the second part of your sentence, chasaboy.

Unless this doesn't threaten their business model. In which case, congratulations all round.


3.) 17 Oct 2020 16:30:38
Would not get rid of lennon and certainly would not replace him with strachan.

The time to revisit this is the end of the season.

Watching Celtic these days is like having an egg carton with six eggs in an trying to find somewhere to put a seventh. Slow and predictable is an understatement. We need players to take men on and hope that pulls others out of position to create openings.
Know I'm stating the bleeding obvious, but we seem to try same tactic every game and have no real other options other than hope it turns out ok.

chasaboy they look like they are playing with the fear of making a mistake. hope that is not the way they are being coached.


2.) 17 Sep 2020 10:40:12
There is one constant in all of this.

Aindoh - Scott Brown? 😂.

That's approx £150 million down the drain in the last five years ( conservative estimate ) . For a board so interested in balance sheets, the failure to prepare is totally unacceptable!

Small business mentality
No growth mindset

But when you are the 2nd highest earning CE in UK football, what's the point in giving fans hope in terms of European profile and prestige.

Of course non of the above is helping the new goalkeeper settle. We need the back line settled and consistent and maybe then we can build a bit of confidence. All this chopping and changing, is it any wonder no one knows WTF they’re doing. Injury and absence aside, the defence has been neglected for more than a few seasons and only the winning has taken the focus of that. Now that mid to front has hit a lean spot, that neglect is a real problem. And Lennon constantly tinkering isn’t helping.

Doesn’t mean it’s not around. Viruses don’t generally die out, they mutate, some become weaker or we get better at responding to them.

Fact is, this isn’t going away, as has been the case with other C.V.s throughout history. We need to find a way live with it, by means of better management/ treatment (vaccine? ) Hopefully it will become less virulent in time. Unfortunately, lockdowns will only ever offer short term solutions.

That’s the thing no one seems to be taking on board, no nor knows for definite. Lots of opinions but if you could pin it down we would have a handle on it . The media love to number crunch for sensational reasons but how many people do they mention had a list of other ailments that C.V. exacerbated. My point about pubs PT aside is valid, they are relatively controlled environments, shutting early solves nothing if people go somewhere else to carry on. I’m 60 now but when I was young I was bomb proof an fire proof didn’t think that far ahead. Decisions have to be realistic if they want cooperation. I’m not being dismissal of the C.V., like everyone else I’m just trying to find some sort of coherent plan to deal with a problem, I think we have to learn to live with till circumstances change. Most of the population will have little or no effect from this virus and not being uncaring ( from experience) vulnerable people will always be vulnerable.

{Ed007's Note - Working in ICU you'll know more than me but with my health conditions and my mum's all we can do is what they tell us. Grotbags has worked all through this following her work and government guidelines, if wearing a masks and washing hands etc saves one person it's worth it imo.
I said to my mate on the phone during the week, imagine your mum caught it and croaked, how would you feel if you had it in your mind that you charged into her house without a mask or that? Wear the masks and follow the guidelines and at least you won't feel guilty if anyone you love gets it - does that make sense? At least you've done your bit.
I honestly think we should have went back into lockdown weeks ago - Grotbags wouldn't let me go to Mass tonight because the taxi firm we use has had 7 or 8 drivers
tested positive over the last couple of days.
We can pick over the bones of it but public gatherings like pubs etc aren't going to help matters going forward, back in the day the worst you could catch in a pub was a dose of the clap or a nose infection from sharing a note lol.

Sorry think you’re going off on wrong track at what I said, people will do what people do! Trying to make opening hour’s a controlling influence is a sign of “ **** me what else can I do” . Like I said, I work in ICU and can’t think of anything that can be directly or otherwise traced back to pubs. incidentally that was never my point. Why aren’t all players who travel abroad having to self isolate for 14 days like the ready of the population, obviously from country’s deemed a risk? Don’t hear any ministerial objections there .

chasaboy

{Ed007's Note - It was you that said "But let’s shut the pubs" so I assumed that was important to you. So working in ICU where is it getting traced back to?}

Well he definitely gave a bit of perspective but if we don’t steady things at the back we’re not going to improve. Know he did well to restrain but would have loved him to call out Sevco in front of him as to their lack of scrutiny to other 😂😂😂 Scottish clubs.
