    That was a very decent performance and result. AIK were poor enough but we controlled the game and were much better tactically than against Cluj. We had much more control of the game. Boli is still poor though and we need better. He has mistakes in him. Julien was excellent in the 2nd half- if he keeps that standard we have a commanding presence there. Christie was superb. Johnston and Forrest look good on the wings. Big Fraser to come back in and a few more signings- hopefully a left back, right back and left winger(Johnston is excellent but a little raw yet). Nice cushion to take to Sweden. Lets get the job done and look forward to the draw.

    Pleased with Jullien, that will settle him in nicely, won some good headers, seemed robust in the tackle and had good distribution.

    Boli first half i thought was good. Second half for me was a bombscare. I've been reserved in opinion against him when everyone's been slating him, but for me that game showed how badly we need a LB (please sign Meling).

    Eddy class again, looks 5 yards faster this year and hungrier! Great goal.

    Christie again was tasty and a threat every time he got the ball.

    I love the guy but i just think Brown is now just a passenger, goes through the motions, and can't help but think a midfield 3 of Ntcham/Christie/McGregor would have created enough chances that game to completely kill the tie.

    Was good to see Bayo come off the bench and look up for it. Movement was very good and looks really pacey and strong up there.

    Really don't understand Lennon's obsession with playing Lewis Morgan. Sincy and/or Shved have got to be better outlets than him. I'd honestly rather Alan Thompson come out of retirement and be fired on as a sub than Morgan. Waste of a jersey for me and offers nothing anytime I watch him. Pretty sure I've seen him fall over a blade of grass and claim a foul this season.

    Better performance and a clean sheet which was most pleasing. Can see us adding to the scoreline next week and coming away with a comfortable 0-2 scoreline in Stockholm.

    A left back. Left wing and possibly a holding midfield and i'm certain this season will be a canter!

    Course you are.

    If cups and titles could be won with 60 nil nil draws and 4 dead bodies on the park every game you would be ecstatic :giggle1:

    Aik are a defensive team, I think they will struggle at home to Celtic. To be honest playing defensive against Celtic generally means a draw at best. The teams who beat celtic play with a high press as we seem to struggle with it

    After weeks of listening to you and others losing the * place you better believe I'm having a jab.

    I take it you weren't too fussed about conceding 4 vs Cluj? The zero for AIK tonight is massive for us. Finally good overall defending.

    Well, you might not of realised, but we got knocked out of CL last Tuesday..
    The 'losing the * place' was justified.

    Great result tonight granted, but it doesn't disguise the shambles which was last week.

    Anyone thinking Ntcham can replace Broony is dreaming. There's potential there but with Broony there's no doubt, he does the dirty work and does it well, Oli wants more glamour.

    Cheers, know what was so cool about that, I was thinking Ryan would be well up for top cornering it, it's so good to have that quality up front

    That free kick should be on PornHub tonight.

    Why Eddie hasn't had a pop before is baffling.

    I think they are different players, Ntcham would be suited further up the park with no defending to do.
