    M8 watching them in their last game i think we will need the pace of frimpong if they get a break on us wen we ar pushed high , they have good pace up front .

    Hope nobodies got any weird ideas that Celtic should breeze through this with no problems, Ferencvaros are a decent side with some quality players. I expect us to win but we will need to put in a good performance.

    We should be winning this fairly handily, but we’ll have to be miles better than we were today.

    For the love of * don’t play a 4231 with Christie at right wing and Ntcham number 10.

    Elhamed Jullien Bitton

    Frimpong Ntcham McGregor Forrest

    Elyounoussi

    Klimala Edouard


    That’s what I would go with. Elhamed in the back three with Frimpong in front of him.

    Forrest on the left isn’t ideal but he gives us a more of a threat going forward than Taylor and he will get up and down and help out defensively.

    Klimala and Eddie up top. Hopefully the game will be more open which should give Klimala a lot of space to run into.

    Would put on Ajeti for the second half or after the hour mark depending on how things are going as he needs the minutes to get fully up to speed.

    Elyounoussi was great in the last European game against Reykjavik so would start him in the 10 with Christie coming on later in the game.

    Just can’t bare the thought of 4231 again with some of the performances recently but I know that Lenny will play it with Brown and Taylor starting.

    Lenny needs to dump that idea after today it doesn't work and we have two forwards available so hopefully two up top and think this is a 3-0 win

    Need to up our game and find that next level that we know we can play at.

    Get Christie in the middle or hook Brown/Ntcham and throw a second striker up top for the 3-5-2. Its our best formation.

    Not going to be easy and our first real test this season. They are a decent side but with the home advantage id expect us to win.

    2-0 will do me.

    We go with that team/formation, we're out.

    I don't mind the one up front with a more recognised team layout not fitting players in out of position.

    No way do we try and accommodate Christie, Brown, McGregor and Ntcham into the same line up. It doesn't work.

    Today, to me, proved that Forrest needs an understudy that is actually a RM, RW player and not rely on shafting Christie out wide it kills our flow.

    Just go with Ntcham in for Christie and start Forrest.

    Don't know much about them, on paper i'd rather have played them than the Swedish team as Scandanavian teams tend to play defensively and like SPFL sides against us and you'd imagine a Hungarian team would be more technical and attacking and open at the back for us to get more space against.

    Looking at their European record from last season though it's quite good. Only lost one of their last 10 European games against Dinamo Zagreb, Suduva, Espanyol, CSKA Moscow, Ludogorets and Djurgardens and Ludogorets who beat them they actually beat home and away in the CL qualifiers.

    Before last season though they'd done nothing in Europe for a long time.

    Hopefully 2 up front from the start, but with lenny talking about today being a great performance I'm not so sure.
