Celtic are a badge of honour for Desmond... something he can keep on his mantelpiece...something he can talk to his golf pals about
Much worse stevieYou've seen worse than that utter pish yesterday? A slow start? Ffs we haven't started the season in my opinion. No shape from one game to the next. Even allowing for the guys who couldn't play could ANY of us predict Neils selections this season? Total mind fuck and Neil is outa his depth right now. Hibs wouldn't take him back. Fek his reputation for being a Celtic man and how much he's had to endure. We're all enduring his woeful attempt to get us playing some cutting football.
Well, I think that NFL has run his course but I’d go for:Totally agree with this....
For me our strongest 11 when fit should be
El Hamed Julie Ajer Laxalt
Forrest brown McGregor Christie
I stand 100% with Neil
I’d haveVargas - jury still out, still think he is decent albeit he was poor in big match yesterday.
Julien- I f can stop falling down with wind I think he is our best cb.
Ajer- not really a cb imo but still decent young player with huge potential. often exposed to fast wingers under Lenny system. under different system he would be very good imo.
El hamed- decent player but not a cb imo
Brown getting old and less dynamic but still very solid ball winner
mcgregor- best midfielder in scotland- totally used wrong imo under Lenny.
forrest- not a wb good inverted right/left winger but no defensive ability but can and does score lots of goals for winger
Christie - most overrated selfish celtic player ive ever seen and there been a few. can play well but ego is too much for me tbh
Eddie -lethal if he had a number 10 trying to link with him. in fact would be better number 10 than christie imo with Griffiths or Ajeti partnering him.
no supply coz midfield is dysfunctional and our wide players cant cross accurately under pressure
players are all good just utilised awfully
my team would be 433I’d have
Frimpong Bitton Jullien Laxalt
Turnbull Ajer McGregor
Christie Edouard Griff
maybe they calculated that will also be gates if they pursue the dead goat zombiesIf we don't win the league this season, wonder how DD and PL will deal with an empty stadium,maybe 10, 15,000 season books,plummeting merchandise sales. share price falling, reality check for the board!
If we don't win the league this season the board need to be treated like the Kelly White board and boycotted out of existenceIf we don't win the league this season, wonder how DD and PL will deal with an empty stadium,maybe 10, 15,000 season books,plummeting merchandise sales. share price falling, reality check for the board!
Like the logic TET mind you would not have ntcham starting either after yesterday, really thought he would show up yesterday but fear he is now in the not interested category. Think we now need to give Turnbull a decent run before the why did we buy him questions arise. Still a little harsh on frimps mindmy team would be 433
Frimpong isn't good enough at passing to be a consistent threat anytime soon, maybe get better over time,
as a silky movement on ball and energy he has talent you cant coach but his passing and awareness with ball are Scottish amateur level.
he is main reason imo no real supply for forwards
occassionally miskicks it and we get goal, but imo he is nowhere near premier league starter never mind celtic first team.
Squad player coming off bench and hopefully gets better with cameo roles when we already winning or need to spin a gamble.
not that great at defending and terrible at passing presently.
big failing has been weak RB RWB for seasons
El hamed was bought he must start for me when fit at rb and if he not good enough another reason why Lenny has failed imo. frimpong back up
Bitton should be in brown position imo, better passer and will give you more long range goals per season.
Julien was bought and is our number 1 CB
Duffy must start with his experience. 2 man central defence duffy Julien with Ajer and welsh back ups.
laxalt at left back with Taylor back up
Bitton anchor, brown cover
with Cal Mac floating roaming playmaker number 10 who stays central and always within 20 yards of ball and when on ball fast quick 1 touch playmaking. stay away from wide areas and try get triangles and then in front of strikers as we move ball quickly.
main play maker- our most dangerous midfielder who has team ethic. Rogic and then christie Christie as third back up the dude aint interested in team football. can pass it and run but he doesn't care about best option. he just wants to shoot, friggin useless in team game imo. can be brilliant but unless he learns team ethic he aint celtic quality imo.
deep lying playmaker/box box runner as 3rd central mid but with awareness of defensive role first and foremost
Ntcham is our second most talented midfielder but he playing too far forward under lennon, totally nullifies his talent.
mid 3 of bitton with McGregor and ntcham all central and should become a triangular unit and moving within 20 yards or ball at all times no matter where ball is.
cover Turnbull and Soro who Soro who aye Soro im sure tv said he was a wonder signing still haven't seen 2 mins of him really.
Turnbull is really a 10 but he miles behind McGregor and Rogic imo
inside left big eddy give him freedom and space to create space for runners with Elyounoussi as cover
centre forward ajetti, griff cover
inside right forrest with Klimala cover
barkas for me is number 1
el hamed Duffy Julien laxalt
forrest Ajetti Edouard
We are far to loyal for that to happen MD. A strong sevco will mean bigger crowds and our loyalty will be even stronger and they know thatIf we don't win the league this season, wonder how DD and PL will deal with an empty stadium,maybe 10, 15,000 season books,plummeting merchandise sales. share price falling, reality check for the board!
Sorry 26 I fail to see how we can blame the board at the moment. We ended winning the league at a canter last season and have invested wisely enough to have made us even stronger for this the 10iar. Yet it is not happening on the pitch where it really counts.If we don't win the league this season the board need to be treated like the Kelly White board and boycotted out of existence
