I don't absolve anyone of responsibility - the players haven't performed well, I accept there have been injuries etc, but new guys have not performed as expected. Lennon's management of the last few months hasn't been up to scratch, and maybe the gamble in appointing someone who flies off the handle regularly was a mistake. I'd hold the Board up for that one. I'd also question the timing in 'mutualling' Lennon - but I don't know what the final provocation was.
Personally I would have started looking for a new coach when Lennon started all his nonsense about 'considering his position' and refusing to do press stuff. I thought that was much like Calderwood. His public floggings of Flo were a disgrace too. So maybe the Board or Leeann if she has the power, should have taken a tougher stance.

There you go - I've distributed a bit of blame fairly eh?
and no mention of Tashy

I firmly believe we could have mare the top 6 with a strong window. Given the managerial situation I just don’t see it. Aberdeen showed on saturday the difference is having a decent manager who knows how to get reaults. They have consistency in manager and team selection.

It’s definitely possible, but I can’t see it happening. As others have said it will probably be 8 points by Wednesday night. St Johnstone are pretty consistent and Motherwell below us are on a good run. We looked like a team without a manager on Saturday and it’s debatable whether we’ll have one in soon.
We live in hope though and while it’s still possible it has to be the aim.
St.Johnstone have lost their last 3 games.Keep that consistency up and we’ll definitely catch them!

A lot in that I agree with.

Two of those games were against Celtic and the other was away at tynecastle. They tend not to lose games they’re expected to win.

I think we will get top six, but probably nothing higher.

As long as our new manager can steady the ship, and actually beat St. Johnstone (unlike our previous manager) then the gap isn’t that that big.

Point taken but it may have dented their confidence!
Here’s hoping!

I don't think so. We are going to have to go on a big run of wins and hope St Johnstone keep losing. I can't see either happening I'm afraid. We have looked a bottom six team for most of the season and I think that is where we are going to end up. A total disgrace if it does happen to be honest. The drop in standards from last season has been ridiculous.

I reckon we’ll edge StJ for a top six place. I also think we’ll pick up a result against the Smellies the morn.

Keep the faith radges!

That is a fact sir. Shameful.
