He wasn't in my top 4 choices, never really been impressed with him and his attitude whilst at Celtic. He's certainly a gamble.

Regardless of the above, he's now our main man and I'm 100% behind him. I hope he gets a big welcome.

Objective in the short term must be to take us clear of relegation by Jan and bring in one or two additions which lead us to a comfortable mid table finish and an opportunity to rebuild and put his own stamp on things in the summer.

Birmingham is a massive game - we must go for the three points.

Can't say I was excited when I first saw his name bandied about, but I've been warming to the idea, and now I'm excited and ready to back him. COYWM.

Well, as we said, the next one came from a better batch than the last few and has a serious job of work to do. So let's see and gave him our support.

Clean slate and all that and let's see what he can do with ;

Bogdan & Lonergan; Tierney, McNaughton, Ream; Dervitte, Mills, Wheater; Medo, Spearing, Josh Vela; Mavies, Danns; CYL, Feeney, Hall; Beckford, Cravies, Mason

and he HE can make anything of Pratley, Moxey & Trotter

and what he can do with some decent youth options ; Riley, White, Wilkinson, Lester, Clough, Threlkeld, Kellett, Youngs, Iliev

and which handful he buys or loans.

That's not a bottom of the Championship squad.

Neil Lennon - or as he is more widely known - Gary Megson jr... there is a spooky resemblance...

Those Bury & Wigan fans will have their work cut out !!

... "Lennon’s time in Glasgow was marred after he was targeted by Rangers fans, two of whom were given prison sentences for sending letter bombs to the Irishman and other high-profile Celtic supporters. He was physically assaulted twice in the city, and also during a league game at Tynecastle by a Hearts fan."

I have stood back since Freedman was sacked and waited to see which man Gartside & the board were going to choose....let's face it, they have had a good choice to opt for considering where we find ourselves so far.

I have kept neutral, thinking to myself that whoever they chose would have my full backing....

I have to admit I think Gartside has had some balls choosing lennon (whether it's a good option remains to be seen). But at this moment in time I say well done Gartside & the Board :oyea:
