#538657 Lennon back with Hibs in SPL

Posted by Elchappy on 21 April 2017 - 08:25 PM

I agree with what Chappy says,my gripe with Neil is his desire to be controversial,cut that fucking shite out and lead the simple managerial life

he usually does the controversy to deflect from his players or "mind games" . .. 








 . . . .he is also a bad tempered wee red headed bastard

#538647 Lennon back with Hibs in SPL

Posted by Elchappy on 21 April 2017 - 08:11 PM

Lennon hopes to make it back in the SPL after winning the Scottish Championship announcing "this will look good on my CV".

Didn't mention this on his CV.


Bolton Wanderers

Lennon was announced as the new manager of Bolton Wanderers on 12 October 2014, signing a four-year contract. He won his first game in charge 1–0 against Birmingham City at St Andrew's stadium, although he was sent to the stands in the 81st minute after an altercation with referee Mark Hayward caused by Lennon leaving his technical area before Craig Davies's penalty was saved. Lennon's first three months in charge saw Bolton rise ten places from bottom of the league up to fourteenth; a spell that included an eight match unbeaten run and four consecutive clean sheets. Bolton reached the fourth round of the FA Cup and took Liverpool to a replay before conceding a last minute goal to lose 2–1 and go out. Things didn't go well for Lennon thereafter, with Bolton winning only one of their last 11 games of the season, and Barry Bannan and Neil Danns being suspended by Lennon for off-field indiscipline. Bolton did however succeed in avoiding relegation, finishing 18th in the league.

Bolton struggled at the start of the following season, and by October 2015 were lying bottom of the table with only one win in their first eleven league games. Lennon maintained confidence in his ability to improve Bolton's fortunes, stating "I didn't realise quite how tough it was going to be but I have got faith in my own ability and I believe we'll turn things around." By the end of November 2015, Bolton had gone on a run of twelve games without a win, and remained bottom of the Championship. At this time, the club announced that their squad had not been paid this month "due to a short-term funding issue" in a statement which came hours before their 1–1 draw with Brentford. In that game, Bolton striker Gary Madine was seen on television mouthing an insult towards Lennon, although the manager played down the incident afterwards, stating "I don't know what he said. He's a Geordie, I can't understand him! It was probably reciprocated!" Bolton continued to struggle and, with the club at the bottom of the table, Lennon left by "mutual consent" on 15 March 2016.


Welcome back, we await your footballastic maestro.

Pity the refs!!!

Hang on Loyal,before you have a go at the ex Celtic captain, manager and NI internationalist, Bolton were bottom and virtually bankrupt. He had no money - I think they were £130m in debt.  When he arrived the same players that were there, he organised and coached went from bottom to middle of the table. However he was forced to sell his best player and the result was the team plummeted.


The man had absolutely no chance in the circumstances.


He has failed where others have failed and got Hibs back in the top league. No mean feat but he was well backed by his Board who knew they had employed a very good passionate young manager.


What is your agenda bringing up the Bolton experience?

If she left her term in office to run its natural course it would end months after Brexit negotiations required to be finished. So she avoids getting duffed over because the clock is ticking.

A point I have made before is that she originally didn't want to leave, but her job is to do it and so she is getting on with it. We told Nicola in 2014 we wanted to remain in UK and she didn't like it so ignored it

Twice you've said that Chaps & twice you are wrong mate! Are you seriously intimating that whilst it is reported in the msm it shouldn't be talked about on here?

not at all Dug as a football club involved. I think we are all saying the same thing - I don't want the victims to be forgotten in the rush to have a kick at Celtic (and deserved if true)

Totally agree with the end of your post Chaps..... well said.

Think the start is out of line, lets not make Celtic the victims here, it should be about the lads who were abused and their families.

that is 100% my point LB. This is seen as an opportunity to point score or kick Celtic - seriously would the posters on here have posted re other organisations? In amongst this the victims have been forgotten and this is wrong.


I am a Trustee of a charity over here and they have had to provide lots of evidence to the Inquiry. Thankfully their record keeping is very good - as a Board we took the view immediately we wanted to get to the truth - historical it may be but some of the victims are living and have scars from it. The whole attitude we took was to provide evidence to substantiate or otherwise that victims accusations could be corroborated through records. There never was any discussion about deflection, or denial or what the negative PR would do.


It wasn't on our watch so we couldn't have done anything. What we can do is fully support the victims and assist in getting to the truth that lessons for the future can be learned.

No offence to Celtic fans but in some ways it's even sweeter when we give the sheep a thumpin than when we beat them.

:shock:   . . .more realistic too

Is this an 'extra' four years or an extension to his original one ? That's how I viewed it. Not surprised as he did indicate he was very happy at Celtic.

I take it the original 1 year rolling one has been replaced by a new 4 year fixed term deal so security for all

#536712 For those against Scottish Independence...

Posted by Elchappy on 07 April 2017 - 06:13 AM

Unfortunately I don't know the details

how long wiil the wait be before any Scottish application is considered in EU?


Scotland's main source of exports is to England/Wales/NI. What will be process for negotiating a trade deal with this separate nation?


What happens in the meantime - paralysis and an economy that is in major deficit without oil (and this asset may already be practically redundant). Where does borrowing come from to fund said deficit with a virtually worthless currency if as the UK has said the £ won't be used.


Sorry Panda, I admire the passion, but it don't pay my bills and it doesn't give me any hope that in the longer term my kids will be better off

Why will she do anything about fans shouting at Lustig the cheating fucker?

You should really be looking at your own player trying to get a fellow pro sent off by pretending to be injured. Disgusting antics

Why not admit once ahgain the home support over stepped the market. Indefensible?


if fans get to assualt players everytime they feign injury Neymar would be in hospital every Monday

that's what it is all about. It's a shame that this should feel slightly anti-climatic as it has been expected so long, but we haven't let up and kept racking up the points.


Well done Brendan Rodgers and the players
