I thought we looked rusty last night. Our final ball was mostly awful. Julien looked accident prone. The midfield struggled to look fluent.

As for the ref? My view on that is Celtic will say nothing. They rarely do. The shitty thing is it won't change. They will do anything to help Sevco and we need to factor in cheating and ensure we ragdoll teams so a couple of decisions can't stop us. It's a farce, but our board are shitebags and therefore the team need to take more of the chances to stop it affecting results.

Didn't see enough of pat to make a judgement, same with Arzani. I was fucked off Shved never even made the bench. Taylor I thought did ok but his final pass was lacking too. Missing so many chances gives refs an opportunity to cheat us out of points/wins. We need to sort this as the last games we have missed a lorry load. That's the only way we can get round cheating. If anybody thinks it's going to stop, they need medical intervention.

Great to see the Griff back hopefully he can drive on the players around him with the passion and aggression he shows on the pitch. Also hope he can get back to being a fox in the box to help this team to clinch 9 in a row. 🙏🙏
I really hope Leigh gets back to being the player we know he can be. He's the best finisher we've had in years, and I like him as a personality, but it will take more than a goal against Partick to prove his doubters wrong. Scoring a barrowload and winning us big games before the summer will silence the cynics.

Does anybody think we'll play the same system on that pheqin pitch on wednesday,bearing in mind, Bitton injured,Jozo's glass knees and Ajer possibly doubtful 🍺
Problem is MD whatever system we play we'll need a minimum of two central defenders. I can't see we would risk Jozo when he's just back so we need Ajer fit. If he isn't ready we'll need to look to the reserves or a square peg in a round hole.

Wee Taylor will be well versed on the Astro which will be a blessing, not sure what stage El hammad is at but he can play central defense

Taylor is the man for the occasion on Wednesday without a doubt. He deserves a run carpet or not. Not sure on ElHamed either but he can certainly play centre half. This week's press conference should be interesting when it comes to squad updates. I have a feeling Ajer will be fit.
