He was the worst player on the pitch all night. I don’t think he is able to play two games in quick succession anymore. It still doesn’t excuse what was a piece of utter stupidity.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

I’m still bemused to why Lenny got given the gig permanently.

The only defence for it is he achieved the bare minimum last season but it really papered over how bad some of the performances were

It’ll all be forgotten in a few months if Lennon is top of the table

Win the league again, sell off another few of the best players and try to replace them with cheap, unheard of “projects”, attempt to scrimp and save their way into the CL group stages, and fail

And repeat

credit to Cluj, scoring 4 away from home never easy in Europe and showed good mental strength to come back from behind twice

Neil Lennon is an embarrassingly poor manager, he is Celtic's biggest threat to ten in a row.

Lennon spends 10m on a left back and center half and leaves them on the bench, why? had he already come to the conclusion they are not good enough?

Boli doesn't look up to it anyway.

He made too many changes and it back fired. Cluj are a good side but Celtic should have saw the game out.

Celtic more suited to the EL, as they would have suffered some heavy defeats like the last time.

Boli doesn't look a great defender seems happier going forward I presume Jullien was on the bench as he is not match fit yet?
 
Yea Celtic are not good enough for the CL and the EL qualification isn't a given?

Lennon has said he is giving Jullien time to bed into the squad. You would expect an expensive signing like him to be starting, though what I've seen of him so far he looks week under crosses. The new right back on the other hand looks decent. Boli isn't a defender. He is a left sided midfielder so another left back is needed. Bringing on Morgan when we needed a goal was a bizarre move considering Sinclair was on the bench.

Lennon is looking to offload Sinclair whilst keeping Morgan.

Sinclair is a far superior player. (When he wants to be). 60 goals in 153 appearances is a good strike rate for a winger.

Celtic trying to downgrade in order to save money shocker
 
Will be criminal if they let Rangers back in and don't get 10

Celtic have become a development club

Buy young projects at low prices, try to develop them and sell them for a profit.

 

Sinclair is at the right age now to sell so they’re trying to force him out despite his stats being as good as anyones. Play Lewis Morgan, he’ll do, cost next to nothing and might get a few goals and assists and attract the interest of a championship club in a year or so we can move him on for a profit

 

Eduoard and McGregor will be gone in a couple of years

 

Even the appointment of Lennon was the cheapest possible option. Made money from Rodgers compensation and got in the cheapest possible replacement

But there is only so far you’ll go if there is a belief that you can continue to win titles without spending much or keeping hold of top players.

Dudelange had somewhat of a fairytale run so it’s not important.

The standard of the Romanian league isn’t great nonetheless - You often see Cluj and Petrolul Ploitesi reach no further than the qualifying rounds, although the latter did make it into the Europa group stages when Swansea were in it and ended up in the same group

After reading excerpts from Lennons press conference today it is safe to say I am terrified of the season ahead.

This could go very very badly.
