For me, Ajeti should be 3rd or 4th choice. Either Edouard or Griffiths or both should play every week. Broonie ... (same with Christie and even Calmac) needs another 3 or 4 game rest. El Hamid might be welcomed now.
McGregors head drops when Celtic are getting beat, need to get it through to him when the game is slipping thats when we want to see the real players and the will to win. 90 minute football nothing less.

So many things not right.....imagine giving madhun the opportunity to give a penalty by diving in like that.....Bain saves and no one gets back to clear the second ball.....Frimpong can’t defend in the air and no longer gets past players.....Elhamad needs to come in at full back.....1 up front just plays in to the hands of a packed central defence.....our build up play is way too slow, too often.....another first 60 mins where there was little tempo or urgency.....we play 2 holding midfield players against a team playing with 10 players behind the ball.....tactically set up wrong imo.....we can’t start playing with 30 mins to go as you’ve given teams too much time to settle and gain confidence.....

We simply have to freshen things up.....Brown and Frimpong need to come off the bench.....Calmac should play further forward.....Turnbull/Soro should come in and they either sink or swim.....and we have to get Eddy and either Griff/Ajeti playing together up top and tactically adjust to suit this.....and I fckn hate that black strip...

Hibs are at best a pretty average team. It was obvious we had the beating of them from the very start. One goal would have done it. From a very early stage for me Ajeti and Elyannousi were not at the races and were not going to deliver. I would have had Edouard on long before half time. He is your number one striker and we were so much on top, with them so shaky at the back. It was crying out for him to be on the park as soon as possible. Now I am convinced Neil Lennon is blinkered by his own decisions and will not make obvious changes because it raises questions about his original team selection. Putting Edouard and Griffiths on when he did, reeks of crisis management. For me there can be no excuses today. I want a new management team in immrdiately to have any chance of saving the season. I wish I had a name, but I don't. Continuing with this is not an option. Something done is better than nothing done.
A sad day.

Know what you are saying Ian,but look at the work this Bhoy has done since he hooked up with this international shit,he should not have been considered for today,,Lenny mentioned he was going to have a word with Clark about using Christie all the time,it,s a pity Ian he did not take a leaf from his own book..

If huns are struggling , a pen or dodgy sending off will happen..So disappointing ..I do believe big mistake not starting Eddie after his french performance which is easy to say in hindsight i suppose..Ajeti offered nothing even though we dominated first half..Pingpong is never a defender also ..Eli is a perfect example of how inconsistent we are this season..We are in a tough spot at the moment..2 wins in 8 is very poor

Teams do not second guess anymore, if we win its the same team next game. its like a 10 /21 er, lose and we change it, need to rotate and to keep a winning shape that all sing from same hymm sheet.

Why won't Lennon start with 2 up front, and why when he needs to go to 2 up front because we need late goals, does he need to change to 3 at the back as well?
Why not start with a 442, Ajeti and Edouard up front. We don't have wingers so our middle 4 would play narrow and not get outnumbered. Ensure none of the midfield 4 are called Brown. Play Elhamed at RB as he's a better defender than Frimong and get the keeper we spent £4m on back into the team. Bain is crap.

Don't think we should be winning everything but does 2 wins from 8 sound like everything's fucking rosy in the garden?

Bampottery getting ramped up tonight.
Most money, biggest squad, most international-level players, best facilities - all things which confer a sporting advantage. Unless the team is sabotaged by incompetence and /or corruption. Lennon is clearly incompetent and if he's allowed to further sabotage this season the board are clearly corrupt.
