    I feel the same, I was nervous those last 15 minutes. I really thought the Dutch would equalise but the boys played possession football and slowed it down and altered the pace of the game.

    There will be some sore boys out there tonight.
    I thought Taylor had broken his collarbone when he went down.
    Would not be surprised if Ralston was playing with concussion after that heavy knock.
    Admirable performance by Montgomery.
    Team was more composed in the second half even when under pressure.
    Stupid conceded goals really take the wind out of a team's sails. It was like the Gods of old were testing us.
    Not comfortable seeing Hart playing short out from the back. He releases the ball too late and am afraid he will slip or get caught out.
    Abada is worthy of praise, battled all night. Ralston again 100%.
    The team needs games like this to know what standard is expected of them to continue in Europe.

    Am convinced. We were beaten on the night but the team run themselves into the ground. The two goals conceded was just kamikaze moments, remove that from our game and we will be fine. I hope for another cb. When Julien comes back we will be stronger again

    Not changing your style is fine when you can just go out and buy players needed.Celtic rarely buy the players that we need, its more about buying what we can afford and making do, i think in the end we will simply not have the money to buy what we need for this style to work in Europe and will get more than a few spankings. In our league we will be fine with Angeball.

    Kyogo got battered and kicked all night and the guy kept on going like an Eveready battery. What a gutsy guy, a real team man.

    We are blowing out our * out early in games and Kyogo is doing the work of 2 players. The defence is inexperienced and all over the place. Hart will improve with better players around him. We need a good ball playing left back for balance. Eddie is showing glimpses with good play around him, and holding the ball up, and making an effort. Christie looks a player under Ange. McGregor needs a rest or sold. Rogic looked yards off the pace. Taylor is not good enough for me even on the bench. We are way off a good side. If we win Sunday it will be an early blitz like today and holding out at the end. We are a work in progress and I like what Ange is doing, but it will take time.

    Buy the guy a proper centre back, left back and left winger and let him mould a great team.

    We’re a far better team (and far better suited to Ange’s style) with Christie as an 8, so a left winger is an absolute must before the window closes.

    Am happy we will be playing Europa football. The draw is on today Friday. Will be interesting to see what teams will be in our group.

    Think the squad and state of things shows exactly why it will take 3 windows for him to fully sort this.

    He's working miracles the past few weeks tbh. If you'd have said to me we'd qualify with Ralston and Welsh as our right side against AZ I'd have.....dunno..but I'd have done something.

    * * though pls help him.

    Hes done brilliant so far. No doubts about it. He needs to be a little more pragmatic against certain teams especially if he's not getting all the players he wants this window. Leads nicely to the next point, the board need to stop * about and get him the players he wants in. The ideas are there. Just needs the personnel in to match the philosophy.

    One of the things he needs to do, is hire a couple of his own staff now. He can't do this own his own. This needs to be looked at ASAP.

    But so far so good. We're on to something special with the big man. Long may it continue.

    Hey brethern's and sisteren ( sounds more like a plumbing appliance )
    Good to be back among u all from down under.
    As I said on the appointment.of big Ange, we have the right man. His attitude, passion and desire for all out attacking football and success, are renowned and revered in Oz and Japan.
    Lucky this evening, yes, but given the time and the funds from upstairs, we'll go from strength to strength. Sunday will be a great barometer to show where we're at. McCarthy in, Starfelt deported, we'll, only time will tell ? Go the big fella !

    Agree with most brother, but I think the big fella can have us pretty strong after just 2 Windows, depending on what happens this week

    McCarthy would crush any hun that came near him on Sunday, hope to Christ he's playing. Scales on the left of defence and Juranovic on the right, formidable. The Greek goal machine up front and Starfelt sold to Afghanistan Rovers, we'd do it on a stroll !

    Ralston will likely start at RB on Sunday.

    Some may disagree but I feel there is a role to play for Bitton in defensive midfield. He is capable of laser like passes on the deck to players ahead of him as long he plays it simple, and to his strengths, and keeps a cool head.

    Aye, he just wants 20 seconds and 7 touches before he plays his laser like passes.

    Bitton ain't the answer.....unless the question is 'Who should we not play at DM?'

    They were closing down Callum quickly also so that he could not distribute from deep mid.
