    Rogic

    Abada
    Kyogo

    3-0 to the Celts.

    3 points is all that matter here but this should be a game we win comfortably. Hopefully play some good attacking footie and tighten up at the back.

    I would probably change Rogic for Christie but that's what I'd go for. Hopefully a clean sheet......

    Ffs please * a clean sheet!!!!

    Was thinking that but Christie played well first 2 games and got dropped maybe there’s interest and we don’t want him injured. Think Rogic will get game time especially in the spacious home games where we wouldn’t need to worry to much about defending (yes I know). Looked quite sharp when he came on tonight.

    2-0 Celtic. Think we’ll win comfortably but will miss a boatload of chances. Kyogo and Christie with the goals

    Dundee had 2 player's off injured first half and a man sent off last game. Should really be sending out an early message with this at home infront of a full house..

    Here's an insane idea: since we don't have good full backs, let's switch to a 3-4-3.

    Hart (I guess?)

    Welsh Murray Starfelt
    Forrest Soro McGregor Christie
    Abada Ajeti Furuhashi

    Bolingoli would be kind of useful now, but since he has no chance of playing, Christie at LMF.

    Who knows, we might get a clean sheet if we get a RB and a LB in before Sunday who could go straight into the team. If not then we have more chance of keeping a clean sheet that a 17yr old spotty teenager who's still to get his nooky

    I hope we have a fullback or CB signed for this, would be starting then if so.

    Otherwise I'd go

    Hart
    Ralston Welsh Starfelt Bolingoli
    Soro McGregor
    Turnbull
    Forrest Kyogo Abada

    Edouard, Christie and Shaw off the bench, 5-1

    I’m for the 3 at the back I think Ralston is too far gone to be any use to us he just doesn’t have it to play Ange style of football.
    I would go
    Hart​
    Welsh Bitton Starfelt
    Forest Soro McGregor Christie
    Abada Furuhashi
    Edouard​

    Christie as a wing back, we would be so obviously exposed. Also Forrest did more playing in the front line yesterday than Eddy has in all 4 games, we need him to attack not sit back.

    As to the way we are so obviously exposed now with Ralston and Taylor at least they have better control and work rate there is an extra CD to cover over we could double up on wing movement and have a better option to play out from the back plus they are both better at coming inside I don’t think Ralston or taylor gives us anything other than the fear,

    Turnbull needs a rest. He seems to be struggling in this system. From what I gather he should really have been covering for Ralston when Ralston went up field as McGregor clearly has at times for Taylor. Seems been more soro chasing down who Turnbull should have been covering for Ralston

    I know Ange prefers that we play the ball out from the back and that he also likes his keeper to be able to pass the ball out which is all well and good however, Hart isn't at all confident doing that and our full backs are bomb scares. It was noticeable that the opposition sussed that out in the 2nd half against us on Thursday and began the high press which resulted in Hart having to launch the ball upfield only to be returned straight back as we don't have any tall target men upfront to win the ball. So maybe we should give the trio of Welsh, Bitton and Starfelt the opportunity to play at the back on Sunday as they are more confident in receiving balls played out to them than the gruesome twosome

    could Leo play right back?
    get moffat on the bench? rogic needs to step out of 3rd gear and show he wants a starting place in the team
    like to see ajeti play some part if we are winning pick up his confidence.

    fingers crossed good win and no injuries and Dundee utd do a favour
