Pre-planned? Of course it was!

So we went to Rome and beat Lazio? Unexpected if we are honest with ourselves-most would have bitten your hand off for a draw. Many were expecting to lose the game but would have been happy if we competed.

Well,we more than competed! We rode our luck at times but it was a very open game where both teams were going for it.

Some have been saying that under Brendan Rodgers he wouldn’t have gone to Rome and got a result because he didn’t have a plan B. I disagree. BR had faith that his team could go toe to toe against the best. Just like Lenny who has gone toe to toe with a top Italian team and beaten them twice. Aye we got the luck that we deserved-and the luck that IMO we didn’t get under Brendan.

So why am I talking about Brendan? In the week that the club have made public that we got £8.8 million for him and his coaches many again have been trashing him for leaving, calling him a rat etc. I never thought I would hear Celtic supporters speaking like that but there you go, it’s a very different world today and talk like that is the norm.

The one person who should be on his knees thanking the Lord for the luck that has come his way is Peter Lawwell.

Never in a month of Sundays would he have envisaged the start Lenny has made to the season. It’s almost like the Cluj game has been wiped from the memory of most of the support. It’s also as if things were pre planned and they are coming to it’s fruition, things like…

Lenny just happened to not be at Hibs any more, where he didn’t get the sack nor did he leave, he just wasn’t the Hibs manager anymor.

What a stroke of luck,eh Pedro?

Lenny gets appointed the day that Brendan leaves. Now given the time that we take to do anything,what an amazing coincidence that we managed to appoint someone who just happens to be available. And all done within a few short hours.

Lucky that,eh Pedro?

Now, I have been in business both for myself and worked for PLC’s and other companies over the years. I know how PLC’s especially work-people leave for other jobs for a multitude of reasons. Often it’s for more money or better working conditions, but the one overriding thing that years of working at a management level has taught me is that a manager just doesn’t leave and another is appointed the same day-unless that is, things have been worked out behind the scenes and BR had kept the club informed of everything that was happening re him move to Leicester.

Also when you consider who our majority shareholder is, a man who could make life very difficult for someone who took the piss and done the dirty, you really have to think that the £8.8 million the club got was well worked out before the day BR left.

So to summarise, the majority of the Celtic support really didn’t want Lenny appointed, but the majority have supported him because he has the club in his heart and has given his all for the club-even after the club turning their back on him the first time around when he was getting assaulted in the streets, assaulted at football grounds doing his job as our manager, having to move in the middle of the night more than a few times under police escort because of threats to his and his family’s lives, getting letter bombs sent to him, bullets in the mail. Yet nothing publicly from the club in way of support.

There is one man who as I said should be on his knees thanking his God for how things are working out. BR is the bad man-amazing how normally smart and intelligent people fall for the spin and the bullshit that BR walked out and left us in the lurch. The club have pocketed the cost of BR’s tenure. All those silver baubles for free, what a stroke of luck that was. Lenny is so far producing at a fraction of the cost and Lenny now has the support of the vast majority of the support.

Aye Pedro, smelling of roses springs to mind.

What I would appreciate is if the support could stop with all the anti BR crap. He left with the full knowledge and blessings of the board. It really doesn’t take much to see that, all you have to do is look at the facts and the timing. Oh and the money of course.

I was one of those who was skeptical about Lenny,but I am delighted how he has managed to turn a very good team into a team that has the belief and the talent to take top teams on and I am also very happy that the people who said that the football under Lenny would be dull and dour have been proven wrong. It’s anything but. Some of the football we are playing is breathtaking at times,and I’m delighted how things are turning out so far-though probably not as happy as Pedro will be mind you 😉

JIM, if I did not vote labour, my father would come back and haunt me?

JIM, would you ever vote snp just curious.

I thought Chris was a poor commentator the other night.
Had us having a poor first half and although clearly delighted I just think he’s not very professional or polished behind the mic,, more there because he’s a character and available plus seemingly happy to be there.
Won’t speak on bigger issues of course as that would cost his position.
Better him than some idiots but he’s far from a good football comentator me thinks.
I see Michael O Niell is aeay to double the wages at Stoke. Curious to see how he does. Seems to have a bit of something about him.
I hope he does well, nothing against him.
Ulster is churning out the football men, take heed world.
We should start a WhatsApp group 😉
Hail Hail

Davey Moyes to Everton for rest of season is the talk.
Another one I wanna see how he does. I rate him higher than most do it seems.

Mahe

And before we go to the dog park my last bit of wisdom is Frimpers will cement that position while Hamed is out injured and the Israeli has a big battle on his hands to get that spot back. Goals via right back play will increase leading to a teams better with him even if Hatem is slightly stronger defensively view by the gaffer.

MAHE, don’t rate davie moyes at all, would be petrified if he got the celtic job.hh.

Wanker English commentator brings up contrast to when Brendan at Celtic met an Emery PSG team and where thrashed in both.
Says shows how circumstances can alter things.
They can’t help themselves with their EPL superiority complex.

I remember when Henke was with us he was a nobody, when he moved to Barca then Manure he became a superstar, they were so predictable.

Fairhill Bhoy
No surprise.
Lived in London for ten years.
Here in USA it’s very predictable as the tv companies have invested heavily in EPL.
They bum it way beyond it’s level and often ridicule other leagues as non competitive.
Constantly tout it as best league in world despite last season being first time an English team had won champions league in over a decade.
Just pissed really as i hoped living overseas i wouldn’t have to suffer their jingoistic tripe.

Turn this up dead loud

Saturday night loud!!!!!

JNP, hold on.
Beware of his promise
Believe what I say
Before the night is ending
Be sure of what you’re saying
Cause he paints a pretty picture
And he tells you that he loves you
And he covers you with roses
And he always keeps you dreaming
If he always keeps you dreaming
You won’t have a lonely hour
If the day could last forever
You might like your ivory tower
But the night begins to turn your head around
And you know you’re gonna lose more than you found
Oh yeah the night begins to turn your head around
Beware of his promise
Believe what I say
Before I go forever
Be sure of what you’re saying
Cause the words might come too quickly
If you really think I’m leaving
And goodbye might come too easy
If you really think he loves you
If you really think he loves you
You would give yourself completely
If the day could last forever
You would give yourself completely
But the night begins to turn your head around
And you know you’re gonna lose more than you found
Oh yeah the night begins to turn your head around
(????)
And the night begins to turn your head around
Oh yeah you know you’re gonna lose more than you found
Ma ma ma ma oh the night begins to turn your head around
Yeah yeah yeah yeah and you know you’re gonna lose more than you found, oh
