    It feels like Lenny is back, no leadership off the park and Mr consistent Calmac has been indifferent so far this season.
    Rodgers says the right things but nothing seems to change.

    I can understand the point you make. However your point skips to step 2 rather than focusing on one absolutely key aspect. The players brought in during Ange tenure were brought in with his image and tactics in mind. High pressing, quick transition, overloading midfield and some individual brilliance.

    Rodgers has not been backed. I have made this point again and again. A lot of our players are not suitable to a slow and deliberate, controlled system that Rodgers plays. We can see that with the performances. But look at it like this- we have lost real quality and replaced it with * let's be honest. Everything we did previously recruitment wise was buying a certain player who played in a certain way and who fitted the system. With Rodgers we know he likes power and pace. We have brought in small players or players who are slow.

    Today is massive for me in regards to backing him. I need to see a performance to believe that Wednesday counted for something too many times this season a result was due to 'kickstart' our season and it hasn't. He simply needs a performance today just scraping by wont cut it.

    Great team selection on paper, hopefully they do the business. As that’s the best team from who isn’t injured he could have chosen; the team selection can’t be a complaint today

    I agree with you but it’s also a concern if Kuhn isn’t regarded as a starter when he was our only January purchase. He was horrendous on Wed though so can’t really argue with him not starting.

    It’s a given it wasn’t Rodgers signing so I wouldn’t worry too much. And all our signings are concerning recently! For me, I’m done being bothered about who we have or haven’t signed for now. Rodgers needs to get the best out of what he’s got or what is it he’s actually getting paid for. Need a big performance from him and the team today :shamrock:

    Thought the change of formation worked today. Disappointed we didn't continue it to the end.

    I’ve been very critical of BR recently but credit where it is due.
    Two up top tactic change was a welcome surprise and even though it may not have worked, fair play for mixing it up!
    It did work so I’m hopeful this will serve as a springboard for better performances going forward.

    I’ve also been critical that he’s been hella repetitive and dour in interviews. Another welcome change post-match, honest assessments and a bit of humour coming through at points.

    Still lots of work to be done and aye we’ve been hamstrung a fair bit with the lack of January investment but we’re at where we’re at. Either moan about it for the rest of the season or try to pluck out some positives and hope for the best.

    On to the next…

    He’s got a but of the Neil Lennons about him these days. Getting cheeky.

    Brendan Rodgers insists Celtic’s win over St Mirren that kept up his perfect Scottish Cup record proves they aren’t “broken” - as he accused the club’s critics of ganging up to try to “bring them down”.

    Goals from Japanese duo Kyogo and Daizen Maeda secured a comfortable 2-0 win in Paisley as Celtic remained on course to defend the trophy they won at Hampden last June. It was an eighth win in nine games for Rodgers’ men but there has been criticism over some of their performances and results this season



    And Rodgers hit back at them following the win in his post match TV interview with Viaplay. The Irishman said: "The narrative around our team is that we’re not together and we’re broken but you can’t come and win very comfortably like that if you’re not. When you’re a winning club with a winning mentality … I think they’re trying to gang up on us now! When you are successful and this club has been for a long period it doesn’t take much for people to want to bring you down.




    It’s about keeping that calmness. We haven’t been consistently playing to that level but we’ll get there and once the pitches get a bit better as well. We managed the game well in the second half. It was always going to be a tricky game. St Mirren are in really good form. The guys did really well and I’m pleased for them. They’re giving us absolutely everything




    It’s such a tricky tie with the form St Mirren have been in. They’ve had good wins and are high in confidence and have players back from the Asia Cup so it was a big test but we stood up to it defensively. We had moments in the first half but just needed to find one or two better ways to play through the block. We could have scored more in the second half.”

    Rodgers sprung a surprise with his formation as goal hero Kyogo and new Bhoy Adam Idah played together. He said: “It’s the first time we’ve done that. We’ve done it in-game and clearly we need more work but it gives us a different option. And it’s important in the modern game to have flexibility

    New formation. Got it right. Created more chances. Glad he mentioned he worked on 2 strikers with eddy n mousa because they looked fire until sold. A we glimpse of what he's going to try do I think.

    Got the result still think the performance overall wasn't great. Still work to do and a lot of it but a step in the right direction

    Think that's as happy as he's been in a month or 2. Bit puzzling given most of the players look less so.

    See all this nonsense
    It's the same Team Ang had

    Brendan has destroyed the team

    No it's not , no where near it

    If we go back to the winter break 2022/23 season

    Juranovic sold and replaced by AJ

    Giakoumakis sold and replaced by Oh

    Starfelt sold and been replaced by Nawrocki/ Lagerbielke

    Jota sold and replaced by palma

    Mooy - RETIRED and replaced by Holm

    Ccv injured missed most of the season

    Hatate injured missed most of the season

    Maeda injured missed a lot of the season and away to the Asian Cup

    Scales was on his way out the door- only because if injuries is he still a celtic player * that said he's took his chance well.

    Abada been injured missed a lot of the season
    Turnbull - sold

    That's 9 or 10 players who would have probably been first team starters

    Oreilly hasn't kicked a ball since the bid by athletico madrid been knocked back

    Now he didn't sanction these players, these deals were all done prior to his arrival

    The board haven't backed the manager, they've hung him out to dry

    Give rodgers a break and get behind him and his team

    If you've want to vent your anger , vent it at the celtic board

    rodgers has enough quality at his disposal to be playing a * of a lot better than they are , his side to side pish is soul destroying .if he hasnt got the players he wants thats his fault ,if anything he should have the balls to say that but all the talk of quality is just masking his * set up.no crosses coming in wingers coming inside where there are 2 banks of 4 ,so they play it backwards.if he hasnt figured that out yet he never will not if we signed the best players on the planet could he make that bullshit work
