February has arrived and signals the start of Spring but a dark winter cloud still hangs over Celtic Park with fans angry that the boards January review has not been published. Celtic SLO John Paul Taylor has requested it from the board but it has fallen on deaf years.
It would seem that no matter what happens at the club the board refuse to take on the opinion of the Celtic Support who have forked out their hard-earned cash to support the club for a virtual experience this season which has seen us surrender the title to the Rangers without putting up a fight.
The Celtic support are very angry and frustrating with the refusal of the board to engage in real communication and tell us about the direction the club are going in now that the title challenge is all but finished while the media talk about Celtic being in a battle of second place with months of football yet to play.
During January we watched Celtic stumble from one disaster to another, only managing to win one out of six against relegation candidates, Hamilton. I can’t remember a month where we have been so poor. The blame game continues the fans are blaming mismanagement at board level and their refusal to sack the manager, the players are blaming each other and Neil Lennon is blaming the player
Eyebrows were raised when news broke that Neil Lennon was planning for next season when not even his biggest fans believe he should be allowed to continue as the manager. Football is results business and the results alone in January would have seen many previous managers of our club walk the plank.
I find it hard to believe that a club like Celtic have no plan B. Surly Dermot Desmond and the board are working behind the scenes to recruit a new manager who can stop the rot. I will take no pleasure in seeing a great servant of Celtic like Lennon, be removed from his position back at the start of December I backed him like so many fans to turn the season around but now watching the slow death of this season has become more painful to watch with every 90 minutes that passed on the pitch in January.
