Celtic 0 – 2 Ross County
Wow,even the slow motion train wreck that has been our form for too long never really suggested that a result and a performance like this was possible. Most of you watched it as it happened-I was blessed in part as my feed froze in the latter stages so I missed their second goal. By that time I had seen way more than enough,there is only so much pain that even the most dedicated masochist can suffer.
We will deal with the football first. Ross County got the softest of penalties yesterday with not a single one of our opponents,including the alleged victim,claiming. That put us on the back foot and we really didn’t look likely of changing things,even if Ajeti was unfortunate to hit the inside of the post just before half time. In truth,it was about the only chance he had as our link up play was a shocking disgrace all day. How anyone could think that putting Bitton into midfield was a magic elixir that would cure all our ills beats me. How Brown and Christie lasted ninety minutes,or Rogic just short of that,is a mystery that makes me wonder whether our coach was watching. Either yesterday,all season or sometimes ever.
I just despair,quite honestly. It’s all I can do,and I’m scared to shave in case I find a different use for a razor blade. Well,there were a few Celtic fans outside the ground last night and to hell with bans on gatherings who felt similarly inclined and made their feelings plain to all. Not that it should be a surprise to the players-they have stunk the place out this season,all season,to the extent that our ground is probably now an environmental hazard.
This site takes no pleasure in being one of the first to have pointed out that Neil Lennon is not performing to the levels required of a Celtic manager,even as we pointed out that the blame for him even being in the job lay elsewhere,and it was they who ultimately shoulder the burden of responsibility for what we are witnessing now. Too many times our fabled smartest man in the room-in an unknown universe,no doubt-has spun the plates to suit his own ends and not those of his employer which overly handsomely rewards him,nor the wishes of the fans who make it all possible. Surely yesterday was the day that everyone has to admit that we have a mess of broken crockery,a broken manager and a broken executive structure. That one man has been allowed to run the club as his own personal fiefdom despite a history of screw ups.
Neil Lennon has to go. But if we want to avoid the mistakes of the past,those who put him there and those who allowed that reckless disregard for the health and wellbeing of the club need to go too. Otherwise we are only kicking the can down the road until the next corporate failure,the next smart move from a clueless idiot who should never have been allowed anywhere near the reins of a football club,much less ours.
Neil,you have my thanks for some great memories and I am truly saddened that this has come to pass. Lawwell on the other hand? You can get tae f..k out of OUR club,and take your lackeys and your self satisfied smirk with you. Use your vast and ill-gotten gains to best benefit by buying a desert island somewhere. You never know,you might be welcome there. Because I guarantee that you will never be welcome anywhere on this planet where even one Celtic fan exists.
That’s your legacy,Lawwell. Have fun.
