The day after the night before
Where to start ?
Still shell shocked, still annoyed, but we all knew it was coming.
Those who know me and have seen my posts over the years will know that slagging off the players and the manager is not my style and it’s something that I just don’t do, but I must be getting old and less tolerant cos what I witnessed on Tuesday evening was a total shambles.
Lenny made so many mistakes I thought that he must have had a master plan, sadly he didn’t have a clue, not a scooby.
Repeating mistakes that others have made is the work of an out and out amateur who is so far out of his depth it’s actually embarrassing.
Then to try and shift the blame to the players, cowardly imo.
The players need to take some of the blame as well, esp the captain,,, he must have seen how the game was going and he should have taken action as the club captain.
He should have made sure we stopped going all gung ho and shored things up, go against the managers wishes if needs be, but maybes he was scared that he would get shouted at like Tim Weah, who didn’t take kindly to being shouted at, told Lenny that and was gone the next day.
Shocking to hear that, there is also reports of serious dressing room ructions. Lenny and CaLMac don’t like each other by all accounts, I can believe that,,,when Lenny was at the club before he got rid of CalMac to Notts Cty.
He also doesn’t get on with-like Jullien. This is out there so I am not spreading rumours, just repeating what has already been said.
I imagine the split will have grown to cavernous proportions today.
Boli getting dropped will have done his confidence no good whatsoever, Jullien sitting out what he was supposedly bought for, not a great start to your new job is it.
Oh and don’t let anyone tell you that Jullien is not fit, he is fit and Lenny doesn’t rate him, just cos we spent £7 mill on a player doesn’t make him a player, all it means is that our scouting is pish, The scouting will be for another day.
And what is Scotty Sinclair making of this, probably in the top two earners at the club being shunned, great PR Lenny………NOT.
So why would you sign £10 million of talent and not play them, unless they are not your signings.
I recall the same thing happened with Ronny D.
People were slagging him off for not playing players he supposedly signed when all along he wasn’t responsible for signing them,.. it’s the same under Lenny the players are signed by those above him.
Shved is another, the list is endless, but the Pedro groupies will have you believe that every signing is down to the manager, they refuse to believe that their guru has anything to do with signings.
They even refuse to believe his own words !
There is a podcast with the man himself setting out how transfers at the club work, but they still won’t accept it, strange but true, it takes all sorts mind you.
I won’t bother going into the mistakes that Lenny made against Cluj, it’s all been said and the results were seen by everyone, not least the huns coaches will have seen where we are ripe for exploitation, cos they will go for it.
There will be nothing surer.
Will we cope, I won’t be holding my breath.
What we are witnessing is a repeat of the Ronny D era, this time though it’s all the more galling as those who run the club, you know the ones who get paid millions to make sure mistakes are not repeated are making the self same mistakes again !
This some will have you believe is a well run club, I would honestly hate to think what our club would be like if they didn’t think it was well run !
I suppose we are well run given that amateurs are running it, that must be where the well run club comes from, I despair at times and this is one of those times.
Domestically against teams like St Johnstone and Mwell our players are so much better they can even after a bad start, the first thirty mins against Mwell, their talent will take hopefully take over and they will prevail. Against the better teams like the huns, and they are better, we will see.
So on a technicality we are still in Europe and our next opponents are AIK who are a far far better team than Cluj . They are half way through their season , a single point off the top in Sweden and playing rather well.
Oh dear, is this a reason we are hoarding money ???
We are reaping what our failed DoF has sewn. The past number of windows when we should have been strengthening we have done the opposite and it’s payback time. Our biggest problem is that the downward spiral will be nigh on impossible to stop. It’s gonna take another Brendan Rodgers moment, that is something that Pedro will resist with everything he has. It’s now down to DD how bad will things have to get for him to say enough.
Out of Europe and a loss to the huns in the same week possibly ?
Lets hope it doesn’t come to that but the way things are it may well happen. I can’t see a sanction of millions now, we are just gonna have to get on with things I believe.
Scunnered, Oh how I wish I had the balls to walk away from it all, I really do. It would save all the stress and the heartache of seeing overpaid parasites making a complete bollix of running the club that we all love.
A total shambles but not unexpected. Hail Hail .
