    See they're throwing out it's the worse start of a Celtic manager in first 6 games, is that ever? Surely not.

    I'm still behind him. I still think what he's trying to do is right, the way we set up is tactically one of the better ways to break down teams who just sit really defensively in basically two banks of five but to be effective it needs runners from deep and we simply don't have any.

    Kyogo is so effective because his positining and movement scared the * out of defenders, gets them turning and chasing. That's how you open up space. He's scary good at it for a guy starting at striker, maybe an option is playing him in behind someone who can hold up the ball but really most of our games are against teams who play like Livi today and with Christie gone we really don't have the player who can unsettle these really defensive setups.

    Jota / Turnbull / Rogic / Abada had nobody to find and nobody was dragging men away from them. Surprise surprise we never cut through and never create anything. Turnbull in particular is so * slow, always turns back, always squares his man up. Rogic at least ball carries a little bit.

    My mind always goes back to Stuart Armstrong as I don't think we've properly replaced him. Someone like him alongside Rogic, starts deeper than him, give and go, ends up at the byline. Or gets fouled on the way. Pulls defenders all over the place.

    Add a player like that and this system comes alive in games like this, we won't just camp outside their box going nowhere. Just need to give Ange the time to find that player.

    Rogic and Turnball shouldn't play together

    Same was said about Lennon last year. I don’t think we need a miracle worker. Just someone who can organise a team and change it when needed to grind out results. Ange shown so far he can’t do either.

    At home against the bottom half teams it's fine. In a physical away match or against a decent team then they aren't athletic or pragmatic enough.

    Throw Mccarthy into that for your midfield 3 then you're just asking for trouble

    This result is disappointing but Ange will march on. He must, must, must start looking at plan Bs and new approaches, the managerial dugout is no place for tactical stubbornness. He must know that Celtic managers don't have time on their side. The run of fixtures up through until Christmas will be the making or breaking of Ange Postecoglou as Celtic manager.

    It starts before today. Better recruitement was needed, just ask anyone who stayed up to one minute before the transfer deadline just to hear McCann went down south.

    He looks completely lost during matches. Just stands there and makes subs only when it’s far too late.

    I appreciate it’s not a completely lost cause yet but it’s really last chance saloon time.

    The squad is very poor but it’s not as bad as these results and performances.

    Can people stop using the term Ange Ball or get an automatic ban on here?

    It is utter cringe

    Something I have been laughing at the huns about

    He has has absolute rotten luck with injuries, let's have it right .McGregor , Forrest , Kyogo are the 3 most important players in the side for me. With those 3 back , Julien back , and another transfer window I still have faith .

    Same as Lennon did.

    Kennedy and Strachan offer nothing. But it’s on Ange, as he accepted them.

    Mental that it’s any sort of saving grace though.

    Being 4 points behind after 6 game is a full blown * situation. By no means am I in the ‘sack him’ camp or even close, but he needs to put together a winning run and soon.

    Probably because he has a ton of injuries and * all options to bring on. When we get some players back Angeball will be back in full effect
