    It's not all on him because the players particularly the midfield and forwards were slow and flat footed the whole game but theres no doubt he got the team wrong and took far too long to change it.
    Early days but this is the first time hes slipped up in my eyes and he needs to learn from it.

    1 win in 5 away games.
    At home we're looking great. A more pragmatic approach against better teams away from home may be needed.
    Europe trips could be long nights with this approach.

    I've given him countless praise since the Hearts loss, but he got that wrong today.

    He can't do anything about Edouard missing a sitter, but he could have swapped Kyogo and Edouard after half time, or brought on Rogic for Turnbull, who was atrocious.

    Waiting until after they score to make changes is the most Neil Lennon thing ever. It's true, our bench was horrific, but bringing Rogic on when they started to dictate the play would have changed things.

    We can still win this title 100%, but we're nowhere near the finished article, and Ange * up today, no doubt the Honeymoon period is over for him.

    Disagree mate. If we played Kyogo through the middle we would have created so much more than the 1 chance Edouard missed.
    We looked much, much better with wee man through middle.

    And for all the domination we had, Christie, Abada, Turnbull all done * all.

    Today is on Ange, he * up soo bad.

    He's inherited a team of shitebags that are scared of them.

    Everyone could see Turnbull doing nothing and getting waltzed by and * it out of challenges, yet he kept him on..

    They'd started the second half better than us and he didn't think once to change anything up, instead done a Lennon and waited for them to go ahead and then change it up..

    That was honestly pitiful today. He had a real chance to do a number on them and he shat it..

    That was like watching one of our game's against them under Lennon later last season..

    A joke of a second half..

    Again, a big criticism I've had is how long he waits to change thing's and he did it again today..

    No impressed one bit..

    I blame Ange for not sticking to tactical principles employed so far. Why play two players that cut inside on the left? Also, forcing Edouard was a mistake- he turned out to play horribly.

    It’s a total disgrace that he is forced to coach with staff that he doesn’t want. They want to to pass the ball about in the box and Ange wants to attack more so it’s just conflicting nonsense

    ‘meet the new boss… same as the old boss’ ???

    I hope I’m wrong, but that was clueless management right there.

    He wasn’t helped by the shitbaggery of certain players hiding (yup - those same ones!), but it was still a very poorly managed game.

    He’s not sticking to his principles as ‘his’ backroom staff don’t share his principles.

    A massive thing for me:

    WHY are we still playing with no men on the posts? That’s another goal we probably don’t concede if we did.

    We used to play men on the posts under Rodgers - usually Tierney playing there. Can remember quite a few times him clearing the ball off the line.

    Still so weak at set pieces it’s unreal

    Was enough there to be encouraged. Exceptionally early days.

    He's been excellent so far and he's done an amazing job..

    Took too long to make changes tho and Kyogo needs to play through the middle, every time.

    Early warning signs already, 2 league defeats already away from home.

    Same problems, same outcomes in these games, can't say I'm impressed so far, best results against pish so far.

    Needs a lot of players or it'll be the same outcome. Need to spend a lot of money and don't think we will.

    We'll steamroll Ross County and his cheerleaders will be telling us he's better than Pep, again.

    He needs to stick to his principles, * the staff! They might get replaced, but he's picking the team.

    Enough width on both sides from the start of the game (left footer on the left, right-footer oon the right), and we look dangerous.

    Play too narrowly, and we look like fools.
