    I think he's doing ok and improving all the time.
    Anyone comparing him to Effe needs a mental health check.

    I thought that in his first few games but he's definitely improving.

    Did you see him sliding in, trying to intercept a pass down the right wing?? It was schoolboy stuff, it’s a shame the guys injured but hopefully Taylor comes in a cements the position as his

    The guy gets abuse at every opportunity. He's doing just fine. All defenders make mistakes, he's done way more good than bad. Last season we had Izzy or Hayes at left back for the most part and Lustig on the right. The four we have now have improved the team hugely as has Jullien. Lustig is a legend, Izzy was great in his day, both were done

    Is there a case, say in European away games, where both he and Taylor could both play together, on left side?
    Would make us so solid.
    I get the impression that he is perceived as our weak link-some Celtic fans included.

    Sliding in like all players do from time to time? Away and take a pill or two.

    it was bad defending, he does have this rashness to his game wether its diving into challenges or trying to beat his man at left back and get the ball taken off of him or trying to pass out of defence when its not on

    im hopeful he'll settle down and not be so rash, maybe we are spoiled after having kieran the last few years

    Bad defending, yes, in a split second of a 90 minute game, it happens. There been better players than Boli slagged for less. Nobody seems to talk about the good part of his game though

    Has a lot of good attributes but if he’s going to be a consistent starter here then he needs to stop giving the ball away. Countless times the other night and better teams will punish you for that.

    Honestly the stick this guy gets is unreal. I think he's done very well actually in the short period of time since he signed. And I think he'll get better. People need to remember its not going to be easy to step into Kieran Tierney's position and be a world beater straight away. He's a good player and I do like him. He took a couple of games to get used to the pace of the game in the Scotland.....once he got used to that I think he's done well ever since. His performance at Ibrox was terrific. People seriously need to give him a break. I remember a few year ago it was Forrest used to get it all the time. Now we all love him.

    There are more people that go on about the surprise at the stick he gets than people that actually give him stick(on here anyway). I actually haven't seen much stick aimed at him at all just some who point out mistakes he has made (and there have been plenty). At the same time most people point out how excellent in attack he is and how good his pace and delivery are.

    Still not convinced by him to be honest.

    Improving yes, but still gave the ball away in really poor positions a couple of times on Thursday and he seems to have at least one lapse of concentration or error in every game.

    Hope he continues to improve, just not fully sold on him as of yet.

    He was excellent today. Anybody that thinks other wise is tainted by the “he’s a donkey” tag that he got straight away.

    Involved in the build up to all 3 goals.

    cross for Forrest was as pin point as you can get.

    He is doing fine!

    To the tune of Don’t you want me Baby

    “You were working as a left back back in Vienna

    When we got you

    Neil picked you out and let you out to see what you got

    Still playing like your somewhere new

    Then two months down the line you have the ball at your feet

    Success will follow that much is true

    But don’t forget from your first game to where you are now

    We will back you with the hoops


    O Bolingoli

    You know we can’t believe it when we see how far your playing

    O Bolingoli

    After Tierney we felt lost and that’s when we were saying

    Replacements hard to find

    But then you changed our mind

    Well never change it back cause then we’ll all feel sorry


    Boli Bolingoli

    Bolingoli Mbombo

    Boli Bolingoli

    Bolingoli Mbombo”

    Still a working progress
