    We are very predictable when teams park the bus , need to move the ball quicker and run at them to draw the fouls .

    Aye that Keyago pish is infuriating:56:

    Started a bit flat. They started well and have been very well set-up to be fair. Hard to break down..

    Kept the ball well and got that important first. Just need a better cross in to the box more frequently from the wing's, although Tony set Jackie up well for a quality finish.

    Jota our most liveliest..

    Pressing well from up top, Rogic and Turnbull also chipping in noticeably high up..

    Centre halves have been composed..

    Juranovic and Kyogo the 2 that don't look comfortable today..

    Juranovic at lb and Kyogo rw is making us a bit unbalanced. If we manage a second early on, I would bring Johnstone on for Kyogo and Montgomery on for Juranovic.

    It's very hard to play against two banks of 5 sitting 20 yards from goal , no space , no room to run in behind . Hopefully they tire or come out and have a go to create a bit of space. Glad to be 1 up . Kyogo just does not look like a winger in any shape or form . Literally wasted out there....he could do a turn on the left cutting in on his right possibly.

    Aye noticed that aswell mate
    Maybe meaning domestically, kyogo and big GG should both be playing through the middle
    Hope Ange realises this at half time, he doesn’t even look happy playing on the wing

    The most bizarre pronunciation of Kyogo I’ve ever heard.

    Worse than Tam Boyd calling Bitton ‘near bitten’.

    Quite like the Celtic commentary. Some folk complaining they get too over enthusiastic and some saying they get put to sleep, canny win. I'd personally have Tom Boyd himself for every game if he'd agree.

    We could play a 4-4-2 system- pull Rogić out for Montgomery, and let Juranović be the right winger.

    Celtic playing well but need to improve in the final third. Three things to improve: Jota has missed a few too many passes compared to his usual performances, Ralston has only completed one cross (which was scored) and need to get Kyogo on the ball a lot more. It feels like Kyogo is being wasted on the right.

    Would swap Kyogo and Jota. Jota has played well there when he has had to and Kyogo looks very uncomfortable on that side.

    Ange won’t change the formation. Have to find another way to fit them both in.

    Unless we have any kamikaze moments, I fancy us to grab a 2nd goal. Controlling the game so feel like St Johnstone will tire just chasing the ball.

    Good goal from Giakoumakis. Difficult one to hit cleanly given it was a classic 100mph Ralston cross. Holds ball up really well too.

    He's not been poor but I think the issue with Kyogo out wide is that he looks more like an inside forward being asked to play in an winger role like Jota.

    St Johnstone defending deep and in numbers. Celtic playing patiently and probing. Good movement and passing and can see another 3 goals for us second half. Pleased with the play and the goal atm.

    There is no other way, other than playing a 2 striker system.
