    He's been written off at least three times ( including before he had even played for us.) Some * will never learn.

    I don't think it is "coincidental". However, I do think there are certain games where his style will be more beneficial. I just don't think he should be an automatic pick anymore.

    Love Broony but i wouldn't be sticking him back in that midfield just now.

    But knowing Broony he will get back in and dominate as usual.

    It's a great problem to have, Broony and Ntcham are fantastic players but the 3 in the team just now are playing brilliantly, they shouldn't be dropped. Doesn't mean it's a slur on Broony or Ntcham

    Again though mate. He's been written off so many times before. We won't miss Broonie when every pass is coming off and decisions are going our way etc. When things aren't going so well is when we will need him.

    I'm glad we've found a midfield lineup that clicks so well together without him, too many times over recent years when he's dropped out because of injury it's been noticeable how much he's missed, but he can't play forever, we need to look forward and not be so reliant on him to motivate others and be the engine of the team.

    I'm not saying he's done or anything, far from it, if he's not playing week in week out and keeping fit it'll probably extend his time as squad member, there will always be games where his style is better suited than others.

    Aye still has a big part to play mate and I hope he stays for the 10, but it’s the first time since early in his Celtic career that we’ve been a better side without him and not just domestically. He can’t go on forever either and it just feels like the beginning of the end.

    The team are playing well but far too much is being made of Brown being the reason. Still absolutely vital and actually played well c Motherwell! We have had poor matches without him but happy to see him fight for his place however!

    When we're up against it he's essential, but for SPL teams playing 10 men behind the ball, we can do without.

    we had more fight in the second half with him on the park, and the dominance we suffered in the first half was far less in the second. He made a huge difference when he came on.

    Midfield absolutely shat it last night. Looked frightened every time they got the ball, rushed passes leading to most of them going astray, and lacked fight.

    Broony came on, immediately brought a bit of calmness - it was like when a wee guy is ready to get his * kicked in by another 2/3 boys, but then the wee guy sees his big bro coming round the corner.
