We go again! I'm trying to put that debacle behind me.

For me.....I want and need to see a hugely positive response to what can only be described as a tragically inept performance last Saturday from mostly all concerned. I think this game will determine the extent of the issues we currently have.

Another insipid performance from all concerned is not acceptable.

What are you expecting to see from the team, individual players, the coaching staff, et al.

What changes would you make tactically and individually.

Spare no one. Let's have a ruthless assessment of what you think we need to do.

Given Neil Lennon s recent track record we are likely to see the same team with Christie instead of elyounoussi.
For me using his own words, just give me the thunder back and we can at least say we have moved forward from the weekend.
This is singularly the most worrying period in ten years.
Let there be sweat on their tops and show us you care.

I must admit I have great confusion around this match at the moment and would never thought I would say that I am still none to excited about the prospect of a game against Milan such has been the effect of Saturday upon me.
I think if I was lenny I would pick the 11 I feel that would give me back the passion and desire that has been missing so badly and to send the message that what has gone beforehand is unacceptable.
To finally give the fringe players a chance and to liven the whole squad up. It may not get the result but a message and a desire to play will be sent
Bain
Elham. Bitton duffy Taylor

Christie. Soro. Turnbull lax

Ajeti. Griff

Now I don't expect that to happen and the only reason duffy stays in is for the threat of the lanky sweed and that Jules looks like he is out injured

I wouldn't imagine either Bitton or hamed will start due to them both being covid postitive...

My choice with those available would be

Vargas
Frimpong Duffy Ajer Laxalt
Christie Brown McGregor Elyanousi
Griffith's Ajeti

But we all know that Ntcham will start

This European game has a strange feel to it for me. Ideally this should be an exciting game away from the pressure of going for 10IAR but Saturday's performance and result has really ramped up the stress of going for the league so this has game almost become a distraction.

There are a few players that need to get their fitness levels up so I'd give them a game so they are more match fit for the Aberdeen game. I thought Broony may have been rested for this but if he is suspended for the Aberdeen game then he will almost certainly start.

I don't know if Elhamed, Bitton or Jullien are fit enough to start so I have assumed they aren't. I'd go 442:

Barkas
Frimpong (Elhamed if fit) Duffy Ajer Taylor
Christie Broony MacGregor Laxalt
Klimala Griffiths
Bring on Ajeti (for Klimala) and then Elyounoussi (for Griff) in the 2nd half as they are used to playing together up front. I'd try to get Rogic on for at least 30 minutes and Turnbull & Soro on too for a good run out. Obviously this can all go out of the window depending upon what hsppens during the match!

Let's hope for a great game to restore our pride. During our history it is often these type of games where our backs against the wall where Celtic rise to the occasion so I am (maybe naively) hoping for our team to get stuck in and make us proud.

Thank Christ we have a new goalkeeper. I would play Bain myself.... tried and tested and better than what we have...
