Media fast and loose with Neil Lennon comments


The annual raft of idle speculation unsettling Celtic’s playing and managerial resources is well underway.  One newspaper headline today proclaimed, “Celtic boss wants Canaries to approach him”, based on Neil Lennon when talking about moving to England saying, “There has been no offer, there has been no concrete phone call or anything like that, so I haven’t really had a decision to make on it”.  Countless others have followed in a similar theme.

Neil Lennon has not really hidden the fact that he would like to manage in the FA Premier League one day, but none of the journos with pages to fill have any notion on his thoughts of dropping a division in England.  In the real world, Neil is showing no reticence in pursuing team development plans for next season.  We’ll be involved in Champions League football two months from tomorrow, the manager is busy on the matters in hand.

Best wishes to John Brown for his inspired attempts to take down Newco Rangers.  More power to you, John, I hope you have any many lemmings lined up as possible.  Some months ago the plotters had a notion that they would starve Newco shareholders into handing over the club for zilch, or £1 less than Rangers were sold to a liquidation expert for.  It remains possible that Sevco will starve, but notions that there will be an outcome for the plotters which is more desirable than an existence under the current crew are fading by the day.

Don’t forget, we’ve Tommy Gemmell, live on the blog, on Friday between 13:00 and 16:00.  He’ll be here to chat and answer your questions.

    Mark Hateley urged fans to buy season tickets in an interview on the club website.


    You couldnae make it up



    Mark also said the rangers goalie is like a new signing (for Dundee United)



    I think just one more charlotte fakeover revelation would be enough to push the whole damn klan over the edge. But hey it was absolutely brilliant watching the huns die once


    watching the new huns die would be just as sweet

    I know it’s a free country (?) and welcome free speech etc. but I’ve long advocated that posts which are aimed at individuals should be framed in language and tone that you would use to that person’s face.

    I found this interesting on the scoring rates of the Top 5 leagues:-



    Soccer stats on the big 5 leagues



    I remember reading somewhere that the Dutch Eredivisie had the highest goals rate per game, a factor we should take into account when marveling at Finbogasson’s goal tally.






    Good point,but to be fair,if defences are so poor,it hasn’t prevented Virgil being a standout for us.



    I blame our poor standard of coaching.

  9. Delaneys Dunky on




    Aye bud, strange shift 3pm to 3am, in a strange town Livingston.


    Hope you are well in the desert.

    I would go the bypass and come in that way but at 9pm on a Friday night the roads described will be quiet. Really up to your preference.

    Young Stephen Sutton, who raised so much money for cancer charities, has died aged 19.



    Another young man his parents can be very proud of, even though their hearts are broken.

    “Wonder what it will be like on here after the referendum ?”




    Hopefully we can all move forward together as a harmonious blog to disprove the ridiculous notion of moon landings.


    Failing that we can discuss our impending move to the BPL as market forces have just prevailed.



    That is what Confucius predicts, however he also predicts that “Man who sleeps on bed of nails is a very holy man”



    HH, always in Celtic.

    I honestly do not understand why people get so ‘heated’ over voting YES or NO…….. nothing will change…politicians = power & money, nothing more, and nothing less…..

  15. Just been reading back. The tone of the blog was civil and humorous until Billy Bhoy came on and all of a sudden people are calling each other liars and worse.


    Please, ghuys, we have a really special forum here for tims to have an open and frank exchange of views about any topic: so don’t allow one specific, contentious topic to dominate and poison our blog.


    I have set out my views on the indy debate but I recognise that many on here disagree with me. No problem with that. I have met some of them in person and they are lovely guys, and good tims. We will all still be tims after September no matter the result. We should be able to have a civilised debate without the rancour. If not, then don’t engage on that topic.



  16. BMCUWP,



    It’s been going on for about 7 years or so with acts coming from across Europe & according to feedback it gets better every year.


    Really looking forward to it.


    The w/e is costing me around £140 (flights from Prestwick to Derry, transfers & digs) + beer money of course, which will be a little more than that. ;o)






  17. Dontbrattbakkinanger on

    Mountblow Tim, we met walking up to the ground one wet and windy afternoon. You told me about your home circumstances and I hope you are getting plenty of help.





    Now there’s a club I have no desire to join!

  19. When we gonna start putting the numbers on the front of our shorts again ?





    RICHIE 1424

    Hopefully come referendum time we will be in the Champions League , probably the group of death and can read from the usual suspects about how rubbish we are.

  22. macjay1 for Neil Lennon on

    The referendum.


    No point in getting worked up about a foregone conclusion.


    What you can`t change,accept.

    When we gonna start putting the numbers on the front of our shorts again ?

    Para Handy is sailing down the Ayrshire coast, which reminds me of one of the funniest lines ever.



    Fulton McKay was playing a minister and he asked the skipper if he could get a lift from Brodick to Ardrossan.



    The skipper said , ‘ Well you can work your passage.’



    Fulton responded, ‘I only asked, there’s no need for that language!

    Capri Sun is the CP drink of choice for keeping your throat sufficiently lubricated for optimal yodelling techniques,


    and the occasional blast of Hail Hail

  27. fanadpatriot on

    Hooper or Finbogasson?


    I like Hooper but who would be the hungrier of the two to succeed ,I would put my money on Finbogasson .


    GH would be viewed as a failure ,down in England,and can only score goals in Scotland.


    Finbogasson,if he scored a lot of goals,would be hailed as the new kid on the block,interest would be high and as we know that’s suits PL policy.


    Finbogasson it is,unless someone knows better.
