    I just made that same point on another site.

  2. Famous last words but the team is honking.



    Dead horses being flogged by a coach with a Nelsonian eye.




    Not sure if BR is wanting to give his favourites appearance money or he is running some of the awkward squad into the ground.




    There is a JMcG sized hole in that team.



    Plus we are still carrying the two draft dodgers from Thursday.



    Interesting is only the half of it.

  3. Would love a free flowing comfortable win,but will settle for a scrappy 1 nil.


    Got a good feeling about today,keep the back door locked and we have plenty going forward for goals.

  4. CELTIC (4-3-2-1) Gordon; Lustig, Boyata, Benkovic, Tierney; McGregor, Ntcham, Rogic, Forrest, Edouard; Griffiths


    Subs: Bain, Izaguirre, Simunovic, Mulumbu, Morgan, Christie, Sinclair

  5. For those who can’t see the 2 “defensive” midfielders today you are portraying your lack of understanding of the team.



    Ntcham and McGregor will play a more defensive role with Forrest and ROgic being more offensive. French Eddie will come in from the left.



    This is a strong enough team and should see a comfortable win today IF we create the abundance of chances we create.





  6. No Morgan no Mulumbu Lustig Captain – I think Brendan is really ripping the board a new one.

  7. BSR @ 2.42



    I don’t see it as a strong side I see it as stubbornness in the face of criticism.



    No matter the talent available at the moment our attitude is letting us down.


    The lack of attitude and desire we suffer from runs through that team.



    Hopefully this is the game CMcG turns up.


    Honking for four so by the law of averages he plays well.


    In this instance hope trumps statistical theory.

  8. Bateen Bhoy it will be him, wee Jamesey it he Ferryman. Of course going by the past few weeks Ntcham and French Eddie have downed tools because Dembele has gone and Griffiths is rotten just now anyway. But Gordon can’t distribute the ball and Boyata is a traitor.



    So pass marks for Tierney, Benkovic and a Rogic with the other 8 in close competition for piss poor player of the day.



    CQN is so uplifting! ?





  9. Hells Granny @ 2.58



    Ignoring current form …


    You really are having a laugh now.



    We are in this hole because form has deserted us, our attitude stinks and we have no heart.


    FC Wizard of Oz at the moment but without the magic sippers or the wee terrier snapping at ankles.



    Phoning it in would be a bit generous but that is where we seem to be.



    Finally hoping that the Awayday CSC up their game and sing songs about football.


    Please no more pseudo militaristic tripe from a bunch of Burton’s Commandos.


    Wear the gear but slightly ignorant and self indulgent when it comes to understanding the issues.

  10. I don’t like McGregor and Rogic in the same midfield.


    Neither is defensively disciplined and Rogic has some wonderful moments but gives the ball away to often.


    Our inability to know what to do when we turn the ball over is a worry with both guys in midfield.


    Nt’cham also lacks positional savvy as brilliant as he is.


    Hopefully the defense realizes and will push higher to squeeze the space in centre of field and Gordon will have been told to be alert to sweep long balls over the top

    A surprising selection but I’m not prejudging anything . We will know by 5.15 whether this is a team to do the business or not.


    A few players have got a chance to make up for selling themselves (not to mention their teammates and the fans) short on Thursday. Ntcham, McGregor Griffiths , Edouard ,Lustig.


    Rogic too , needs to have more of an impact than he has of late.



    I would like to see us start the game the way we started the second half in Perth .

  12. My initial thought on team selection is that our midfield has no bite.



    Hope that I’m wrong.



    Hail Hail.

    I don’t like McGregor and Rogic in the same midfield.
