    Last week he got it wrong, this week for me he didn't. Christie let us down badly.

    But he will need to start rotating especially at home, and we surely can go 2 up front at times.

    Today Ed just got overpowered with their Defenders and they were just booting the ball in the air a game up the park.

    Worrying how we dont seem to be able to put a run of good performances together,imo lennon has to take the blame for this.
    One bad performance is acceptable every so often, but we dont seem to be able to put the so called poorer teams away and i get worried every game we play now.
    To play so well Thursday and then play like that today is so annoying and i can only think lennon cant get the players in the right frame of mind.

    I agree McGregor needs a rest and has been poor all season, brutal today. But the turning point in that game the day was a mental tackle by Christie, not a lot Lennon can do about that. Hayes was absolutely the right man to bring on imo. Someone not scared to put it about, unlike sinclair.

    Wouldn’t say that. Poor week for us domestically but it’s early days and, as we saw when we went to Ibrox, the huns are *.

    Would like to see more rotations as i generally think they would help, we DONT need Brown in games like this all the time, nor McGregor or Forest ect ect, gives us fresh legs and those player put in gives them a reason to impress, its getting rotations right, not ripping 5-6 players out at a time maybe just 2 or 3 to give players a break without killing momentum, we just dont seem to do that. Also dont understand why we would play so wide today on a pitch that is * horrid, screams for more central overloads, cant be to scared to change formation every now and again we have the players to do so.

    Cant blame lennon for the red, stupidity from Christie no complaints, saying that we looked poor prior to the red and abysmal after it and some of that blame lies at Lennons feet, he needs to learn from this as we cant afford to many days like this. Also the same subs of Bayo, Ntcham and Hayes is predictable and the timings are poor imo, anyhow we haven't lost the league today but anymore performances like last couple of league games and we may be in for a shock.

    5 points dropped in the last 2 League games, even this early in the season, no more room for error now, canny see the uglies dropping many points outwith the games against us.

    They're * but we're the ones dropping points against the rest of the league and the standard of the other teams is worse this season than its been the last few years so it's worrying we've been bad in consecutive weeks against two of the worst teams in the league.

    See Tbf, you can see why he kept the same side... we played so well on Thursday.

    Most were calling for the side to remain the same, I wanted a diamond but those players didn’t turn up for him today..

    Christie reckless, Edouard uninterested v bang average CBs, Forrest looked like he wanted to be elsewhere, McGregor too, Ajer all over the place and Jullien ill-disciplined..

    Players were unacceptable today.

    I was worried about this fixture this morning. Bad playing surface, run ourselves ragged on Thursday. Bad day at the office but no need to start hitting panic buttons yet. Think Lennon does need to rotate more with the Thursday fixtures but he will get it right. On to the next

    The red card didn't change the pattern of the game. Livingston were the better team before the red card and they were the better team when we went down to 10. We shouldn't be looking to bring in players to mix it, that's exactly what Livingston wanted. They are desperate for the game to get turned into a battle. We should have been looking to get the ball down and play football. Instead we launched long balls from first minute to last and got absolutely no joy whatsoever from it.

    One off game against the huns we are a far better team yes. The difference at the moment to me is the huns have players that can win games ugly against * like Livi and Hibs. They have that type of player and we don't I think. Huns beat Livi 1-0 and we lost 2-0.. beating teams 4,5,6 at home is all well and good but the huns will do that too, these are the games that matter..and so far we have been poor..

    They’re * compared to us.

    34 of 38 games they don’t have to play us though.

    Aye but if we can lose to the likes of Livi occasionally then so can they.

    Was always going to be a hard game for us, Livingston away are everything we struggle against. A wee tight, * pitch, an aggressive & organised side. It had the makings of a slip up beforehand. Then only having 10 men, well.

    The worrying aspect for me is that I think we would still be struggling to win that game with 11 on the park. The blueprint to beat us is there, it goes back pre Lennon. We are too prone to being bullied. Maybe it's part and parcel of playing pretty football & if we want that to continue we might have to put up with getting overwhelmed the odd time but it certainly is a characteristic of ours.

    We may well win all 4 derby games and still only win league by couple of points. Only due to them not looking like dropping points against the dirt teams the way we have.

    What constitutes " a good run of performances" ? We won 6 and drew 1 of our first 7 games this season averaging over 3.5 goals per game. After losing to Cluj we then won 8 games out of 9 ( 1 aet) and the draw was away in Rennes before he dropped points at Hibs.
