After highlighting a ‘strategic planning failure’ that could only be laid at the door of the Chief Executive, Paul 67 has today made a bizarre claim about ‘plotting behind our backs’.
The phrase was used in denial about Neil Lennon, of all the accusations about the club manager that one will never ever be thrown at him. Never. He might get selection, tactics and/or substitutions wrong but no right thinking fan would ever contemplate that phrase in relation to Neil Lennon.
After a brief glossing over the result on Tuesday night and the reaction, today, cryptically, Paul 67 claimed:
Five days ago, I was feeling good about the start to the season. We had scored 12 goals in two league games, last season we scored seven in seven. For all Neil made mistakes on Tuesday, he is not plotting behind our backs. The manager, players and board will feel this as much as we do. If things go against us in the coming weeks, you will know how alone we are. Time to circle the wagons.
Celtic fans have no appetite for circling the wagons or burying their heads in the sand. That approach was tried a year ago and has only led to a repeat of past mistakes and failure.
If Peter Lawwell doesn’t want to speak to supporters and season ticket holders about four Champions League failures over the last six seasons supporters will speculate about the reasons.
Whether it is a boardroom driven only by increasing profits year on year, a failure to recruit players or failings in the management are all points being discussed by supporters.
No-one is accusing Lennon of plotting, perhaps Paul67 will give an explanation tomorrow on his blog.
