I thought that my bad diet or terrible relationship with alcohol would be the main culprit that would ‘do me in’ but if things continue to escalate as they are currently, then the next time Neil Lennon is on TV and gets a reaction out me could very well be a fatal one for this writer.
His moan about Northern Ireland last night was something else.
You’d think Lennon, before signing up for these gigs, would remember that he set up a talented team to fail and was as reactive and passive as they come.— Stevie (@stevieblock102) October 12, 2021
He’s got some nerve criticising anyone for the same traits he demonstrated last season. pic.twitter.com/TyNylotM9g
“My emotions are ones of anger… that was abysmal in that second half, absolutely abysmal.
First half, Bulgaria looked like the worst team in the group by far. Northern Ireland had three great chances, and then they scored.
They could have been two or three up at half-time, they came out for the second half, no urgency, and were totally passive. They sat off Bulgaria and invited them onto us, our game management in the second half was pathetic.
With 15 minutes to go, we were 2-1 down and had not really been in their half. We got a corner, we take a short one and lose it, the ball is 50 yards back up the pitch to kill any momentum.
It seems to me they lost their way completely, no leadership, the gaps between the back three, the midfield and front two was all over the place in the second half.”
Hypocrisy at it’s finest!
It reeks of a man dying to be back in the spotlight for his next management gig.
I will have to just try and ignore him because every time he is opening his mouth on TV just now, I’m losing the plot and for the sake of myself and those around me I will seek help or watch highlights of Celtic games before that 2020/2021 season.
Anyway, Celtic are back against Motherwell on Saturday with another international break AWAY.
Here’s how to watch the game if you aren’t lucky enough to get to Fir Park. You can see it on Motherwell’s website, details below:
