One bad result...

...midweek, and knives are out for Neil Lennon already.

Seems you're not even allowed that anymore as a Celtic manager, or is it just for him?

Disappointing as the Cluj result was, I harboured little hope of us getting past the next round anyway against a side that bettered Sevilla and gave Chelsxi a run for their money I'm the quarters of the EL last term. So I don't think Cluj has a huge bearing on our season.

Disappointment is fine. A bit of criticism of the manager is understandable, though I'm not seeing anything like as much for our captain who sold the jerseys at a critical point in the match.

Now there is much wailing at a performance yesterday, despite the result going our way. A performance where we battered the opposition and should have had another 3 or 4 easily. But it's fitba. It's a cup tie. Sometimes these things happen.

Yet we have all sorts going on. Even enough to encourage the reappearance of the fud after many blessed years of absence. After one bad result?

Really hard not to conclude Ritchie isn'y the only fud on here!

No wonder the Berz are coming out of hibernation.

It goes something like this-

Steven Gerrard is doing a great job and is pure class

Neil Lennon is a lunatic fvckwit who will self destruct and knows nothing about football.

Boli is a nightmare and funny.

You new right back is a centre half who cant get a game for Israel

Rangers have built a great squad full of top players

Morelos will score about 40 goals this season and is a trailblazer who will be straight in that Colombia squad if he keeps the heid.

Celtic players hate the manager and ntcham and edouard want away.

Still hink Cellic will win ra league but.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
I hope you are not attributing all those statements to me?

All I did was ask the question does yesterday’s draw in normal time not count as a bad result.

And this is how a simple yes or no question gets answered?

Touchy touchy boys.😂
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm simply summarising the general tone from many rangers supporters on here and, I suppose, elsewhere.

I'm sure that I could find several similar comments from yourself.

Do you agree that despite yesterday's 'bad result' for Celtic, the equally bad result in midweek and the year's of downsizing that have led us to our current parlous position, they are still significantly better than Rangers?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I don’t think Celtic are significantly better than Rangers right now.

I think middle to front Celtic probably have more options that have been there and done it in terms of delivering titles.

I would say the defence has become more of a concern for Celtic because they have spent a lot of money but not all of the signings have hit the ground running.

It’s early days with these guys though and I would still expect Celtic to strengthen further.

If they don’t I would definitely say we had more of a chance of winning the league than I would have previously thought.

But the fact is Celtic have won 9 out of 9 trophies. That alone gives them a massive advantage in my book. Their domestic record is pretty incredible so that mentality already exists at the club.

We have started well and the signs are good but they have won nothing yet. We are having to try and create a winning mentality.

I think we have a chance of winning the league. But the proof of the pudding will be how we react to the inevitable setbacks that will happen.

So for me Celtic still have the advantage but their next couple of recruits might be critical.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Fair points Hamish.

Or is it Celtic-obsessed trolling and a failed WUM as claimed.



----------------------------------------------------------------------

I post plenty about my own team.

Not sure how I can be accused of being Celtic obsessed.

I am genuine about what I say about yesterday.

If it was the other way round and the Gers had needed a deflected ET winner against a championship team after going out of Europe at home during the week we would be getting absolute pelters.

And rightly so.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Agreed Hamish

I was simply mocking the level of debate we often see on this site

Criticism of NL has been predictable but no less bafling imo. He has served Celtic well in past CL campaigns. Is it more difficult to qualify now? It is it what it is....Scottish teams are where they are.

i'd be more understanding if he would admit he got it wrong, its downright snide to blame the players.

whanker behaviour, take no responsibility, blame everyone else.

Aye, we need another mediocre midfielder.

LB, RB, CB!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the wrong attitude for me, we have a lot of players who will most likely move on over the next 12-24 months, it's important to have the next wave bedded in and ready to take over, otherwise we get left with a situation we have now had at LB & RB.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Well fwiw I think you are wrong. It’s like aqua planing towards a juggernaut on the M6 wishing you had fresh tyres when all along you know the brakes are fckd anaw.

Nobody is claiming we have significant problems or selection issues mid to front but huge problems on the back line, we are playing a midfielder in there and we have no defensive subs to name on match day far less better options to play. It is ludicrous!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah, but signing a young midfielder for the future has nothing to to do with our defensive issues, we're not trying to sign him instead of a defender.

Not sure how you know that, sjb and, whilst I agree it ought not to interfere with the defensive search, it must be at least a tiny distraction and that is my point. As ever, the proof is in the results and so far Boli and Julien have yet to convince Lenny far less the fickle fans!

Nah, not having that, Celtic have McGregor, Brown and Ntcham at CM, anyone of these guys or all 3 may not be in the Celtic team 12 months from now, its important to be thinking of the future.

As for the defenders, they are on the way, I'm not worried.

I am. But then I don't accept mediocrity.
