    Scored 10 conceded 13. We've had a go at least!

    Julien injured all season has been a disaster.

    Ajeti and Mccarthy are offering nothing. Can't believe he's been offered a 4 year deal. Can't imagine ange wanted him. A jobs for the boys signing if you ask me.

    Welsh and Ralston can have a career at Celtic. I thought Welsh was good, despite being caught for the goal it didn't rattle him. He was still for the best part of the game composed. It's the same with Ralston. He put in a decent performance but he's been caught for pace. Mccarthy was more to blame for the goal.

    We lost the hold up play with the substitutions. Jota was scoring. Winning fouls. Kyogo was pressing everyone down. Ange has screwed up.

    Forrest is coming back from injury but got a key pass for the goal. For most of the game was innefective.

    The deficiencies in the team are there for all to see.

    We need a better back line. Despite the penalty Juranovic was slack in possession many times. Kamikaze defending.

    New striker if the Greeks not up to it.

    We could have done better. Sickening.

    We conceded the most goals in the competition.

    We again lose from being in front.

    We face a dead rubber at parkhead.

    It’s no a given. We need to earn it and we haven’t. But I agree we should be aiming for CL every year, but realistically EL last 32. It shouldn’t be out of our reach. I think the reason many of us are not too fussed this year is coz we now drop into the conference. Also, coz of the state we were in less than 6 months ago, people can see improvement.
    I’m certain the improvements will continue.

    I don't feel able to clap ourselves on the back given that throwing away leads is a repeat behaviour. As soon as they started subbing them off, you could see it about to happen.

    The drop off in quality between Jota-Forrest to Mikey-Abada is massive

    Mikey was seriously poor

    Don’t get me started on McCarthy

    I've just remembered that Johnston chance that should have put us 3-1 up. Held onto it to long, Jota would have planted.

    It's not like Ange keeps banging the drum about depth...

    Our front three are fantastic but they need help. We should be aiming for players of that quality in midfield and defence too.

    We still have a long way to go but we're only 4 months into a rebuild.

    We know Ajeti isn't good enough and that MJ is probably on his last chance to stake a place here long term. Abada has potential but still a young lad. Can't depend on him too much in these big games, although he should've done better tonight.

    Folk are going on about the subs well they're subs for a reason and he doesn't have a lot of quality on the bench to start with. Kyogo looked out on his feet. The only one I might have kept on was Jota.

    Yip. Agreed. No room for niceness which is what I have for MJ. He's not gunna make here, let him go and have a career elsewhere. Upgrades needed for rotation all over the pitch though.

    * of a result as we deserved at least a point for that performance.

    Our bench is horrendous though and it showed in the last 20 mins.

    Tbh the conference will be a tournament we could go far in, and the league is the priority so I can understand why Ange made the changes he did, just makes Sundays result all the more important. Can't afford to drop any points in the league.

    That's the point. Were too thin with our bench. That bench is nowhere near the quality you need to rely on. Absolutely * us.

    Were you expecting us to compete overnight or do you want me to list who has left the club over the last three windows?

    We can’t run ourselves into the ground to stay in the Europa League.

    As predicted Ange wasn’t appropriately backed in the summer by a CEO who has now been sacked. There’s no sense Ange running a bare bones 11 into the ground for short term pride.

    We’ve got a league to win. We’ve got to limp through to January and back the man to the hilt.

    I thought Kyogo was still full of running to be honest.

    With the mess Ange was left with 4 months ago and a group with real betis and Bayern Leverkusen you think El football after Christmas should be a given, * me I’m glad you’re not my gaffer, so you honestly think Ange should be finishing above they 2 after 4 months with what he was left, actually after last season beating ferencvaros home and away was a step up

    Can you imagine the uproar on here if we picked up any knocks in those final 20?

    He can’t even drop players for Livingstone at home without dropping points but people want every key player doing 90 away in Germany.

    Champions League qualification > Europa League Qualification.
