New managers often make mistakes. Sometimes they are more frequent than the managers they replace. One common mistake is having a team revolution, or selling a majority and replacing those players with suitable ones that fit the role or the new playing style the new boss hopes to implement
Neil Lennon, the Celtic boss has done just that. Though, for the Northern Irishman, this tactic has for the most part seemed to work. Lennon took over for Tony Mowbray after the Hoops apathetic season was given an exclamation point – or maybe it’s sullen opposite – after lowly St. Mirren trounced Celtic, 4-0, at the end of March. With a month and a half left in Celtic’s woefully dismal season, Lennon was basically given a trial more than the task to catch Rangers, who were flirting with a double-digit point lead in the table.
