Scott Brown not the only one worried about manager

1266

Scott Brown was not the only one was briefly worried about Neil Lennon’s position in recent months.  Neil has never particularly hidden his desire to work in England one day but when it became evident that there would be a few seats available in the English top flight, with the Everton job in particular becoming available, I am sure there were a few nervous twitches.

As and when Neil decides he is going to move on, Celtic will want to have a plan for succession in place, if not entirely executed.  In May, when Neil was fielding questions about moving on, I doubt any succession planning had taken place.  Some at the club would have been looking forward to a summer break and some player trading.  The prospect of finding a new manager, with all the inherent consequences for trading, preseason planning and Champions League qualification, would have caused mild panic.

Always be prepared.

How is your 1254125 work coming along?  Not started yet?  Today, Tom Conniffe completes his 125 mile walk along the Leeds-Liverpool canal.  Go look and see how well his fundraising has gone (and get involved if you can).

    I personally doubt Neil will leave. And certainly not until his team has won a treble.

     

     

    Betcha a pint.

    For me,you have to let go if you have no option.

     

    My kids are also on the move.Que sera sera.

     

    The distance is irrelevant.The price of the ticket is all.

     

    If she goes,then that`s a good excuse to visit.

     

    A lot of good Tims in Brisbane.:-)

    Nowt really,but the huns have got a new bus. Apparently it’s like winning the league not that they would know.

     

     

    Oh,and I canny remember what we call that league anymore,or who is in charge.

     

     

    Bloody confusing ,I can tell you!

  11. Stolen from twitter so can’t confirm the team ……

  12. Is there a decent crowd at the ‘behind closed doors’ bounce match against Crewe?!

     

     

    Is it on the SB?!

     

     

    HH!!

  13. Be prepared !!

     

     

    I’d be looking at guys like Vincenzo Montella, Glenn Hoddle, Johnny Collins and Billy Stark if Lenny was to leave.

     

     

    These guys would make a cracking job of the group of young players we are signing these days.

     

     

    Would love Michael Laudrup but i reckon we missed the boat with him. Bigger things for him after this season with Swansea i think.

    Sounds impressive, Joe, but I’m off out to a pub in Yoker & I will bet that it is further out in space than your vehicle.

    Brisbane is where her “other” family are.

     

     

    Be prepared.

     

     

    John from the club sent me over a BCSC jersey a few years back. I think it just made her mind up.

     

     

    We all want the best for those we love,it’s as simple as that. Self will never come into it.

     

     

    I expect good people like you,not to look after her,but to drag her down the club when The Hoops are playing!

     

     

    Fortunately it is a few years down the line. But I’m holding you to it….

  17. Paul67 et al

     

     

    Just read an article in the July issue of ‘World Soccer’ magazine.

     

     

    Full-page spread on the SPL season just finished.

     

     

    Opening line reads – “With Rangers demoted to the third division… (!!!)…

     

     

    Have mailed them to point out their glaring mistake/lie.

     

     

    The author of the piece?

     

     

    A certain DAN BRENNAN.

     

     

    Any relation Paul?!

     

     

    If he is – and I hope he is NOT – please have a word! :-))

     

     

    HH!!

    Please tell me you are drunk…..

     

     

    Your drunk right……..

  19. Maybe Lenny was simply putting out the message

     

    that he shouldn’t be taken for granted.

     

    well I hope that’s all it was.

     

    If complacency isn’t tolerated on the playing field

     

    then it shouldn’t be tolerated in the board room

  20. Guys have a read of John Collins blog with regards players. Excellent article.

     

     

    He’s working at the SFA help trying to implement what should have been done years ago in this country with regards teaching kids the basics of football and progressing youths so the national team. Some of his outlook on the game is good, same as Hoddle.

     

     

    Montella going to be the next big thing in Italy RE: Billy Stark See Hoddle and Collins.

     

     

    You could have said the same when we appointed Lennon at the start. Many thought Lawwell and DD where “drunk” and mad, but where proved right.

     

     

    Feck Rangers brought Paul Le Guen in and everbody thought what a catch and look how he turned out.

    Now that ,my dear fellow Tim,is the beginning and end of it all.

     

    Get yourself a visa.Pronto.

    Both Hoddle and Collins were superb players.

     

     

    In management,their ego outstripped their talent.

     

     

    Each of them has proven to be a failure.

     

     

    Neither of them should even be mentioned for a vacancy which,I remind you,does not exist.

  23. This would be the same John Collins who slagged off the North Americam Celtic Supporters Assoc. for putting him in the same hotel as drukin Celtic Supporters 4years ago at there Convention. A fanny of a man.
