    Also needs to be said that Motherwell were farking atrocious.

    So maybe we weren't that great.

    I still think we have a problem in central midfield so maybe it is time to drop Rogic or Turnbull and start with someone like Bitton.

    Just got to keep winning though.

    Kyogo likes to track back and he could come forward late through the spaces as a false 9 if Giakoumakis was up front. If Mikey could play at least a good 45 mins I would have him on the right and Jota on the left. They could both either cut in or cross raking head-height balls for GG to get to and nod in.

    Hart

    Ralston, CCV, Starfelt, Boli/Scales

    McGregor

    Johnston, Kyogo, Turnbull, Jota

    Giakoumakis

    4-1-4-1

    I would have penalties taken by CCV or Kyogo at present.

    Depending on fitness.

    Hart

    Ralston, CCV, Starfelt, Boli/Scales

    Juranovic

    Turnbull , McGregor

    Johnstone/Forrest , Kyogo , Jota

    Scales needs to be blooded into this team and get a good run - even to give a rest to Starfelt later in the season. Seems to me Ange has potentially 3 players capable of playing in each position on the field.

    RB - Ralston, Juranovic, Osage
    LB - Montgomery, Boli, Scales, Taylor
    RCB - CCV, Julien , Welsh
    LCB - Starfelt, Julien, Welsh, Scales
    DMF - McGregor, Bitton, Juranovic, Scales, Soro, McCarthy
    MF - Turnbull, McGregor, Bitton, Rogic, Soro
    RW - Forrest, Abada, Johnstone, Kyogo, Dembele
    LW - Jota, Johnstone, Forrest, Montgomery, Dembele
    CF - Kyogo, Giakoumakis, Ajeti

    Turnbull McGregor Rogic
    Abada Kyogo Jota

    I'd still start Abada, but with MJ back and Forrest also soon available hopefully, want to see improvement soon with his delivery. Also would like to see Giakoumakis get at least 30 mins, depending on how game is going.

    Not sure how to take that seeing we still need to sign players in January, especially to bolster defensive midfield. I am referring to what is available at present in terms of squad players.

    Bit of a lack of mobility centrally but that's a recurring theme. Still think that's overall our strongest XI at this point.

    If Forrest is back any time soon I'd like to see him come in for Abada but assuming Jimmy doesn't make it I'd go with Kyogo RW again. Abada has been seriously off the boil for weeks.

    This is the line up (4-3-3) I’d go for based on what I saw in Celtic’s league game. I didn’t watch the Europa League game so I can’t comment on how everyone performed.

    • Bolingoli did well and it would be good for the squad depth to allow him to build on that performance.
    • Abada didn’t perform last weekend. There were too many bad crosses/passes in the final third so I think it would be important to give him a rest this weekend.
    • I doubt Johnston will be able to last the 90 mins so it will be a good opportunity to move Kyogo to RW and bring on Giakoumakis around the 60 minute mark. It will be very interesting to see how Ange fits both Kyogo and Giakoumakis, who has impressed me since coming back from injury, in to the same team the future.

    I think if Ange played a 4-4-2 system then both Kyogo and Giakoumakis could be up front. Not that he has played this system often in the past.
    I feel Ange may use GG as an impact player this season in the second half or to rest Kyogo and play him for a full game.

    I can't see Ange playing a 4-4-2 system either. He isn't going to change his system now that it is working until the next evolution of his system.

    I think Giakoumakis will come into the starting if there are injuries or players are underperforming and Kyogo will be moved around to RW or LW. Moving Kyogo at this moment though is probably not the right move as he is playing extremely well.

    Solid win, control the game, clean sheet.

    Anything else is a bonus.. they won't be here to let us play football. And I don't think they are coming expecting to win.. so just another game in Scotland where a team are set up to frustrate, slow the game, deny skilled players the fair chance to show their skill.

    And then clubs wonder why sponsors don't want to pay much for our league..

    3-1 to us. Set pieces are one of their strengths and our weakness.
