  1. Today’s Glasgow Derby starting line up ……



    Barkas; Welsh, Duffy, Ajer, Frimpong, Brown, McGregor, Ntcham, Laxalt, Klimala, Elyounoussi



    Subs: Bain, Taylor, Ralston, Soro, Henderson, Turnbull, Rogic, Griffiths, Ajeti,

  2. As ernie & others have said, I would not normally be worried were the worst to happen and we lose the opening fixture at our place.







    But in a year where the league could be shortened (I still hope that a minimum of 22 games has to be achieved for fairness) it becomes a bit more influential rather than decisive.







    Lat year, they were a squad that were ompetitive for the first half , and it took the hard slog of January and February wins to knock them out of it.







    They are a direct attacking team and I reckon will attempt to impose their dominance in the opening 20 minutes. If we have not conceded by then, my confidence will grow.







    Neil has made an interesting selection, to ue Elyounoussi as the support striker. While this weakens us u front, it adds a bit more to the midfield to perhaps survive the opening period. With a possible back 3 in play, unless Welsh is right back, and 3 defensive debutants in this fixture (Duffy, Laxalt & Welsh), this might be a wise move to draw their sting.







    I will not be fully confident of winning until that sting is drawn and Neil is ready to unleash a front 2. I can see Kilimala running himself into the ground and being replaced by Ajeti and the Griff, around the hour mark.







    Final caveat is that Duffy and Laxalt give the ref nothing to flourish the red card. We are not good enough to win comfortably with 10. Let Morelos, Jack or Arfield get the first red- that I would laugh at.







    Isn’t it great to be above ground on days like this?

  3. Not the greatest lineup, don’t think Klimala suits playing up top on his own (to be fair none of our strikers suit playing that position).

    About time Celtic find out who is leaking these selections out, that was in media land this morning.



    ‘About time Celtic find out who is leaking these selections out, that was in media land this morning.’






    Does it matter?



    Does it give the opponents a tactical advantage?



    That might be assuming more tactical nous all round than is justified.

  6. Patryck can finish, no doubt about that, need to create chances for him though.


    Celtic to win by a couple of goals!

  7. We are severely weakened and they are full strength- what better day to roll them over.



    Not overly confident sadly but would be extra sweet – don’t leave anything out there Celtic

    Two asks.







    A win. Morelos not to score, just cause it’s funny.






    An own goal by Morelos would be even better.

  9. SkySprtsNews………….



    has it all Sevco and A. Walker ( Sp?) has tippped the Scouse Ned…………..




    Wonder who Shortie will be supportin’?



    Would have loved to see Eddy on the bench but hey, ho.

  10. no need to be doubting the starting 11 , get behind the bhoys , plenty of time for analysis after the game.

  11. The Blogger Formerly Known As GM on

    Half way through October and we still can’t field a settled team..



    Has there been a game where the same line up played in consecutive games?

  12. I named the Sevco team last week. They’re approach and set up is always the same for these games. If we score first they’re goosed. They’re very one dimensional.

  13. I’d love, LOVE to see a touchline punch-up with The Fat Kolumbian Kris Boyd………….


    ….a nice slo- mo of the Scouse Ned, nuttin’ Fat Charlie would just be sooooo-perb.




  14. Not happy with the front 2.Elyanoussi has never really kicked a ball against them.Paddy,OK,but with an out and out striker with him.Ajeti can hold the ball up,Griff is a menace.Cant understand why strikers on the bench.


    Hope to God I am wrong.

  15. If things don’t go well today I for one won’t be in Neil’s case.


    Left with little options today,what a day to turn the scrum over

  16. SFTBs,


    Problem with having a great bench,is game could be lost by then.Griff Ajeti should have started.Can always use the subs for them later .

    A matter of principle, would you be happy if someone in your office released commercial data, no. Needs to stop now!
