The pragmatic, substance over style, Neil Lennon

140

Brendan Rodgers thrilled us for two and a bit years, but the one persistent issue many of us had with him was his tactics against vastly better European teams.  His first experience at this level, a thrilling 3-3 draw with Manchester City, flattered, but subsequent losses of five goals at home and seven away were humiliating.  Brendan was a purist and not willing to send a team out prepared to clear their lines.

His teams suffered only one setback against Newco amid scores of four and five, so it is unfair to hold the mistakes made in December’s reversal against him, but we both know that the manner of Sunday’s win would never have happened under the previous regime.

Neil Lennon is above all a pragmatist.  Substance over style, tracksuit, not tailored suit.  He has significant challenges ahead in the Europa League, and if he ever wants to face a tier one club, he needs to get through a Champions League qualification campaign, but if and when he gets there, his team will not be shredded as easily.

    Your post about Zimbabwe reminded me of Brother Lancelot. He was a colossus: 6 feet 5-6 and built like a tank. He was a Zimbabwean Jesuit Brother from the Jesuit House in the Acre Road in Maryhill. We had become quite friendly and we went to watch The Leeds Game together. He had on a white Aran Jumper which my Mammy had knitted and we were stood near the pylon at the Celtic end. When Celtic equalized on the night, he grabbed and hugged this wee Tim beside us. Guy’s terrified eyes were on sticks as he looked at me hoping it would all end well.
