Find how best to use Scott Brown

815

Neil Lennon will be delighted to have secured his captain, Scott Brown, on a new long-term contract which sees the player tied to the club until after his 30th birthday in 2015, with the club having an option to extend the deal by a further 12 months.

Scott joined Celtic in 2007 and played central midfield until last season, when he was occasionally used wide right, to great effect.  Reflecting some of the conversations we had earlier this week with Georgios Samaras, who has recently been a revelation wide-left after years of frustration as part of a front pairing, Scott seemed to revel in the space the wider position allowed him to exploit.

Before joining Celtic Scott made his name playing almost as an auxiliary striker at Hibernian, where he would burst into the box with well-timed runs but at Celtic he is more commonly anchored in a defensive midfield role.  As a consequence, despite having played more games for Celtic than Hibs, and playing for a team who attack far more often, he has still to match his Hibs goals scored total at Celtic.

    I was saying for years that we weren’t using Broonie properly. Thankfully Lenny listened to me last season and started playing him in his natural wide right position, where he had an excellent second half of last season.

     

     

    Scott Brown, released from the square-peg-in-a-round-hole defensive midfield role, will drive us on tO the title.

    I am hearing very good things, thought Boycie was overrated and overweight for a young boy, trying to win a deal at Kilmanock after being released from Werder Bremen.

  6. With James Forrest playing so well on the right it gives the manager a decision to make when we are playing a midfield four. With five in midfield Scott could play in the advanced role and might get his goal tally up a bit

    a young kid playing in norn Ireland…Cliftonville I think

     

     

    Swansea also interested in him according to BBC

    BT – it does, but defaults back to the original page when you refresh the article. :-(

     

     

    Pity you couldn’t have styed out longer last night, we went to Jinty’s and got talking to Aidan McGeady. He was very friendly and posed for photos with the bhoys.

     

    Is your old man at Celtic Park just now?

    Concrete word yesterday.

     

    I have a job in Scotland with HSE if I am prepared to go to Aberdeen or Inverness

     

    Talk about a rock and a hard place

     

     

    Gonna have to give it some thought though

    Undoubtedly Scott Brown has been more effective out on the right than shackled in the holding midfield role but although I’m delighted he’s signed another contract, I don’t see where he fits in just now, James Forrest has been hugely influential on the right and offers more than brown in almost every case!!

     

    Are you suggesting Paul, that brown should be in an advanced midfield role?

     

    For me Forrest, Commons and even McCourt ( not a huge fan of McCourt) all offer more there too!

     

    Thank god I’m not the manager!! the midfield options at the club just now are staggering, genuine quality in abundance but difficult to get balance / consistency week on week, I suspect some will now be moved on in Jan for neil to get his striker and hopefully Craig Gordon!?

  11. can you not kust mute on the speaker at the bottom left of thr magazine?

  14. Scott Brown has resigned not overly excited to be honest

     

     

    Has played his best stuff as a right sided midfielder this year

     

     

    IMO with Wanyama, Kayal and Ledley all in front of him for the central midfield berths he should have a big fight on his hands to get a game

     

     

    We have a massive squad its now approaching 80 players on professional contracts at Celtic

     

     

    Time for some quality housekeeping

  15. Aluko has been taught to play the Ragers way.

     

     

    Conroy, Collum ….. what is the difference? Conroy could see that it was not a penalty.

  16. tommytwiststommyturns on

    BT – eh naw, he’s speaking at the Celtic Disabled Supporters Asociation winter lunch with Tam Boyd.

     

    Try to keep up….! ;-)

    Agree about the decision in a mid 4. Esp at home against the diddy mobs.

     

     

    A mid 5 only against top opp and broony in advanced role could do it well imo.

     

     

    But I wonder how many on here would find a place for him when we’re at home

     

    against the so called diddy teams. I mean,would/could you drop Jf?

     

     

    Don’t think I would TBH.

     

     

    But to pick and choose when to play your captain is gonna be one tough call.

     

     

    I like Broony,in certain games i’m really glad to have him in our team.

     

     

    Buuuuuuuut,in others I honestly feel we don’t need him.

     

     

    If anyone can tell me who they’d drop for him and why i’d really like to hear it.

     

     

    Not looking to be controversial, I honestly don’t know.
