“No justification for me to be sacked” - Neil Lennon

Is it defiance or delusional ?

The fanbase are split on this issue today, with many replies and quotes of the above tweet putting the boot into the manager, and finding fault in his words.

However, it’s the opposite when you look at the engagement towards the tweet on what Thomas English had to say on Sportsound.

I personally feel that this season’s performances have not been good enough, and I keep saying ‘he’ll get it right’ every week, only for us to churn out yet another tedious display, and then remember, it’s not as if we’re fifteen points behind and dumped out of all the cup competitions.

Is Neil Lennon the right man to take us forward ? I don’t think he is, but we all know how this goes, a few wins on the bounce and this article is forgotten completely, and it’s ‘Lenny’s here for ten in a row’, so right now, I’m taking all of this on a game by game basis.

I’ve said on here for years now, that football fans are bigger in dealing with flip flops than ASOS. One week, it’s a disaster, the next, everything is ‘class’, depending on the result, alas this season, for what is at stake, many players are still underperforming, despite grinding out the results, and it finally caught up to us last week, after being gubbed by Rangers and Milan, while finding excuses to justify a draw at Pittodrie when we should have been good enough to see the game out.

It’s Lille on Thursday and Aberdeen on Sunday, and I’ll be covering them while not being dramatic and hysterical.

I don’t think the Lille result will have any bearing on Neil Lennon’s job, and instead the focus will be at the weekend’s game at Hampden.

I can’t honestly see us failing to do the business on Sunday, but my predictions recently have been as wayward as my appearance, so anything’s possible.

It’s a right good laugh.
