    Alright * breath, I'll rephrase it - he's played 2 games, and he's mince!

    I think he’s looked decent, attacking wise, so far tbh.

    Very fast, good on the ball, decent link up as well.

    Still unsure defensively but it’s early days, far too early to make a final judgement..

    All that's well and good but why does that make him unable to trap a ball with any certainty and misplacing 5 yard passes. Def worrying and if he becomes our first choice LB then we will concede a * load down that side, mark my words.

    All for giving him time but to come to the conclusion from what we've seen that he looks decent is totally bizarre. He looks poor if anything. To say he looks 'good on the ball' ffs!

    If it’s bizarre to conclude he’s decent, it’s equally as bizarre to conclude he’s poor.

    Based on what we've seen, it isn't. He looks poor & I thought that was obvious to anyone who watched him but he needs more time before he's written off.

    2 games into the season and the guy is pish......3 million spent...........what does that say about lenny.

    Maybe we should try giving the player some time to get used to his new * team and club and country.:bash:

    He does worry me to be honest, sooner Tierney's back the better.

    In your opinion, Matt.

    I’ll assume you missed the home win against Sarajevo.

    The mixed reactions in here sum up his first two games, imo. Not great, not terrible.

    Thought he did really well in Sarajevo, just before they scored he got back to put enough pressure on their striker and allow Bain to make the save after Jozo played him onside. And was a constant threat going forward in * conditions.

    Home vs Sarajevo he did well and probably unlucky not to end up with a goal or assist. No denying he * up for their goal but by the same token we should've prevented the goal even after his mess up.

    Was poor on Wednesday and looked off from the start but he lasted 30 mins before going off ill ffs. At worst he killed a couple of attacks but that's about it. No one really had a great start on Wednesday and it took the first goal before we picked it up and started playing the way we can.

    Celtic shirts don’t stretch to fit the lettering.

    Thought his positioning has been all over the shop at times. But it appears that possibly is more related to his his role at his last club. Would think a few months playing competitively to a system will iron out a lot of those issues. No doubting his endeavour and enthusiasm

    Brown misplaces 5 yard passes all the time. Does that mean he's not good enough? Every player makes bad passes
