It is the board.

Absolutely,  but his form is in such a tailspin now that it is a long, long way back for him to what he was 2/3 seasons ago. He is not getting any younger and a relegation battle with Forest (if that ends up being a way out for him this season) is going to involve plenty of pressure too.

From a purely Irish perspective, we cannot afford to be playing him when in this form. 
Just aswell we have no need for him till March eh .........
Just because it's tradition does not make it right

March is fast approaching and this is a key decision for Kenny.
Love Duffy but if the form is still as bad as all that, and Kenny has better options (O'Shea, Egan, Clarke...all PL regulars and playing reasonably well) for the centre two, yet picks Shane out in Belgrade, that's a big worry.

It starts with the board alright but the problems in no way end there.

I don't think the Duffy situation is a key decision. Its barely a decision. I don't have a huge amount of faith in Kenny based on what I have seen so far but with three other centre backs playing regularly to a decent standard in the Premier League it would be asking for trouble for an already under pressure manager to select Duffy in his current form.

Always worth doing a Twitter search for "Duffy" any night he's playing for Celtic. Some of the comments...

Form/personal issues/playing in a team playing badly/playing in a setup that doesn't suit his strengths.

He needs to be taken out if the limelight for a while, both for club and country so that he can find some form and maybe try to get back to somewhere close to the level he was once playing at.

But, once again, it would be absolute madness for Kenny to continue to pick him in a setup that involves retaining possession and keeping the ball on the floor.

Probably not going to be a popular opinion but I can't see Duffy getting over this fall in form. 

His strengths were never passing and possession football, fewer teams are playing defend in numbers and defend deep football. which suited Duffy.

The lower half of the SPL has teams with players at a league 1 or league 2 standard whe compared to the English league and these are the players hes struggling against.

Nottingham Forrest would be taking a potentially expensive risk if reports are seen to be true.

Cant see him making the ireland squad, let alone starting 11 at this point.

Collins, Egan, oshea, Clarke, Kevin Long,  must all be ahead of him now.

Ronnie Deila said that when he took the Celtic job Van Dijk weighed104kg and when he left for Southampton he’d slimmed down to 95kg

Duffy looks a lot heavier than van Dijk ever did, he’d need to loose more than that

He's performing very poorly for that Scottish club you love so much but I'd be hopeful most Irish national team supporters wouldn't insultingly refer to him in the same way you have above, irrespective of how he played. 
If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket.Hell, give him somebody to look down on,and he'll empty his pockets for you
