Bleating about not being at full strength today.

They had a few players out. Big deal. We've had a lot of injuries so far this season.

What happened to the massive wage bill and players to match they keep telling us of?

Lennon literally chose a formation that meant he had to play that Welsh lad.

He didn’t have to, he could have went with something else that would have seen a full compliment of ‘experienced’ players.

They were simply fucking useless and Christie and/or Edouard wouldn’t have made the slightest difference.

We’ve almost always got key injuries in the lead up to these games. Even today, Aribo and Roofe walk into the starting lineup but we never use it as an excuse when we play badly.

Let them bleat. If they can't cope with a few players missing then they have to admit they don't have anywhere near as good a squad as they have kept telling us they had. We can make changes in practically every position without a noticeable change in team performance.

If we had Roofe and Aribo fit it could have been 5 or 6 in all honesty, so we were not exactly at full strength.

And if you looked at the bench, we were much stronger. The tide has turned. 55 is there for the taking.

Funny that most of the pundits are pointing in the direction of the tactical difference rather than the personel involved. Just maybe they're on to something eh?

cracks appearing under lennons tenure.

seems there is a dressing room split. wages for the likes of duffy, the treatment of certain players and a disorganised coaching set up that has homegrown and international players wanting out.

its going to get viral.

It looks that way but we have heard the same for the past 2 seasons when we beat them. We cant get complacent and have to go on a winning run against the diddy teams now and put them under massive pressure.

m8 even Lennons agent is getting involved. There bubble is about to burst. Lennon has told the nation players not wanting to be there and its not one or two.

Tbf Welsh had a better game than Duffy. Not hard I'll grant you but Duffy was chasing shadows all day

That's an excellent point actually. They could've played a fairly strong 4-2-3-1 with the players available.

I couldn’t tell you what Rangers full strength eleven is never mind the tramps.

Today’s football is all about utilising a squad to the best advantage. We’ve had to manage injury lay-offs of about eight players so far this season so if Lennon would like to bend over and spread his cheeks I can point out where he can file his complaints.

We came off that pitch yesterday with our feet firmly planted on the ground 3pts and moving on .

Now that they’ve been dropped at the piggery twice they’re calling their manager a “failed hibs manager”. Wonder what happened to “Super Lenny”

Exactly. The players know it's just 3 points.

There seems to be a determined focus from our players at the moment. Let's hope they continue in that frame of mind and take it a game at a time.

I had a read through the Agents tweets and they are hilarious. Just constantly mentioning the lack of players, 1 day to prepare etc etc. He even says they had 6 starters missing? I count possibly 4.

Wasn’t it 2001 when the Martian and the Neanderthals walked around the piggery with not excuses’ t shirts?

Fair enough, they had a few players out, but we were also missing the likes of Roofe, Zungu and Katic, and our starting line up didn't include Hagi, Defoe, Jack, Aribo, Itten, Balogun, Edmundson, Bassey.

They won't beat us this season.
They had players on the park who collectively cost 56 million pounds what did ours cost.?

All clubs at some point have a few players missing, either injured or suspended. That's why they have a squad of players to pick a team from. Lennon has more players to pick from,than any other manager in the league.

We’d have won regardless.

Their squad was assembled at nearly £60m, ours under £20m

Last 18 months alone they’ve spent £36m

The strikers they used yesterday cost them north of £12m and that’s even before we mention £16m loan man Elyounoussi

%^*& them and %^*& their fans .
