There were certain days when you looked at big Packie in his prime and you thought to yourself "nothing's getting past him today". That also happened periodically with Artur and Forster.

I don't get that sense of security with Scotty, Jim......I always feel that (in spite of his record last season) that he's always likely to spill one in.

I don't think you have to be a 6'7" monster, but you have to have some physical presence and also psychologically "fill the goal".

Their gonna sign big candy ain’t they an we’ll never score again. Shhh you ??

Cluj Champions of Romania,very experienced CL campaigners,dirty at the right times and in the right places all calculated to disrupt the flow of the game.but most surprisingly ( To us ) changed from their default tactical system of sit deep and hit on the counter to coming out and going for Celtics throat which we did not expect and as a result we did not cope with their tactics at all 1st half
Ref. Inconsistent as I've ever seen at this level or effin rotten ( take yer pick )
Celtic. IMO Hayes at left back was our best performer in Valencia last year so even if you dont trust Boli WTF was Calum doing at left back ? !0 minutes in its obvious this is not Mikeys game but we wait till the hour mark to change it.Hayes on from start ,Calum left mid Eddie out left.Griff in the middle Jamesie on bench and play a solid 4-4-2 till we suss the opposition out. I,m not a manager but honest to God we're 10 minutes in and I want the subs brought on because I could feel their goal coming ( Ah know Hayes wisnae on the bench but he shoulda been :(:(:(:(
too,true,,brilliant player, much maligned, gives his all. loads of qualities, even at his age. We would not have won many games last year if me, was not in team

Fuck the fannies that have a bare trophy cabinet.

Goodnight & God Bless pal x

cannot understand formation tonight, looked at team selection, who was going to play where. totally bizarre. looked to me , 3 at back lost it at midfield and attack. Two wingers, three midfield. One forward and one coming from midfield. Mental. but then again I am not a manager. hopefully it works alright 7 the long term. ?

Looking at the players in our squad, we may well have the personnel to play 3 at the back. But the time to try this out is in practice then when the players are confident and competent and fully drilled in it so everyone knows exactly what their roles and responsibilities are.

Then, and only then, do we start it in games. You certainly don't pull it out of thin air in such an important UCL qualifier.

Based on our playing schedule of 2 games a week most weeks until January, we don't have the luxury of trialling radical formation changes like this at training until the second half of the season. Otherwise it is tactical suicide and will result in your defence being ripped to shitty paper by a decent opponent! Time to smarten up.
