    Not good enough. We are so naive and Ange is totally out of his depth. Our midfield was non existent at times, the inverted full backs total madness against opposition like Leverkusen. It could have been six. We had some positives in that the front three look like they will be exceptional particularly domestically. However the manager is showing no signs of learning. If we continue with Rogic and Turnbull in midfield and inverted full backs we may hand the title to Sevco already. It's a nonsense.

    We're gonna win the "most chances, but didn't take them" trophy award?
    I remember when we used to laugh at clubs who used to pride themselves on daft * like that.

    End of the day, goals wins you games.

    We aren't scoring remotely enough.

    Could have been 2-0 up with Kyogos missed chances,not going to hold it against him,won’t be as sharp coming back from injury.They are some team,really impressed with Wurst and Baker on the left,some great players.

    Rogic and Turnbull especially, need to have a rest. They must not play together in the same half because the team lacks punch and stabilty in midfield when they do play at present. They rarely tackle and press in my opinion.

    Leverkusen may well be a good side but they didn't have to be tonight .the ease teams score against us is * infuriating.If we had made them work for the goals you could point out how good they were.thought the pen was a bit harsh don't think it would of made a difference as Ange waited till we were 3 down before trying something different

    So we can't beat teams we're expected to beat and can't beat teams we're not expected to bet but we can't criticise the manager ? His tactics with this inverted fullbacks is absolutely useless and is costing us more often than not

    I fear the board will take the heat off themselves if the next three league results go badly and get rid of Ang and we know at present wee Strachan and Desmond's pal is in the building at the moment .

    Reckon the inverted full backs are a big reason CCV and Starfelt struggle with the ball. There’s no easy ball wide and they’re being asked to thread it through into the middle on the park or ping a ball over the top to the wingers - neither option’s easy. Even when they do get the ball to the full backs the ones we have aren’t good enough to take the ball on in that area of the pitch.

    Start playing a normal 4-3-3/4-5-1 and get a bit more pace in midfield (* knows where from) and I think we can turn it round. Stick with the current system and it’ll be a grim season again.

    We've got to give Ange time it's mental that he's getting the stick when we all knew we didn't get enough players in.

    You would think that a Celtic player would know how to make a side foot cushion shot instead of blazing away at a virtually empty net ! Abada, what are you doing ? Taking lessons from Ajeti ?

    Yep we just need 6 inverted wingbacks, 3 CM and 2 strikers, maybe 2 or 3 CBs and he'll for sure get a win against Dundee Utd.

    Give me a break, the guy is done!

    Christ I actually hated myself tonight as I wished at half time we hired Clarke as manager!! I need a shower...

    Never seen the game but I'm none the wiser going through the thread as there is so many differing views on the evening.

    Dealing with facts, 8 goals conceded in two games isn't great.

    We couldn't beat anyone last season and they were meant to be worth millions. I think Ange deserves time, two seasons.

    Yes, but he needs to give and go at times also because he holds the game up by the amount of touches he takes on the ball. He needs to play cleanly and get into space going forward too.

    How much time?

    We are 6th in the league, bottom of the Europa, less than 50% win rate.

    How much time?
    November? February?

    We all like him and want it to work, we all know what the bigger issues are.
    But we can't fix the bigger issues right now. And even with the bigger issues, there is still enough in the squad to expect better than this.
