    Surely the time has come now to give Broony a rest. Surely!!! Long overdue.

    I've dropped the negativity already. I hope that i'm still feeling like that that when i see the team on Sunday. Please please start Frimpong and put Ajeti up top with Eddy. Do that and we'll have too much for them. Hibs have started well but we're paying too much respect to these teams ffs!!

    Boyle will tear Taylor, if he plays, a new *. Feel we will need to score at least 3 to take the points.

    Never criticised Edouard before but I hope he turns up for this game. The service he got yesterday was poor, in fairness, but thought he looked well off it.

    Probably told him hes sold so dont get injured. Theres a reason Lennon was dropping loosing money during the interviews.

    Team I'd play, not the one I expect

    Barkas
    Duffy Bitton Ajer
    Forrest Calmac Ntcham Moi
    Christie
    Ajeti Eddy​

    Forrest because I expect a more physical game and I think Jeremy would get bullied of the ball to often.

    Tam Rogic, Frimpong, Klimala, Turnbull subs

    If he was definitely being sold, I can't imagine he would have played when we had Ajeti, Klimala and Moi on the bench.

    I'm not one of these guys that buys into he's disinterested etc. but last night one of the first times I felt he looked out of character.

    Don't think I've seen Frimpong get bullied once in a Celtic jersey. The cup final last year when we beat the Huns 1-0, he was the man who stood up to the challenge that day.

    Do you really think Forrest is going to put up a more physical challenge? C'mon!

    You don't think Forrest would get bullied? Sorry much as I appreciate his service to the club he's not great when it comes to putting in a strong challenge. He's well off his game of late and never really has been all that physically threatening. Frimpong is far more industrious and more likely to get the ball to where it's needed.

    Ditto :56:Wee Frimpong isn't in awe of anyone. He just goes for it.

    I've never seen him be derailed because of a bad tackle. If he goes by a man and gets whacked, he's back and trying to beat him again within minutes.

    Forrest on the other hand can be bullied out of game. We've seen it time and time again. Forrest is a good player but Frimpong is much more of a threat and should be playing every week.

    * me, it's made out harder than it needs to be sometimes. Forrrest and Frimpong are both great players on their day but Frimpong's the one on the boil now and has been for weeks. He should start injury to Forrest or not. Same with Ajett banging them in. You sit down first pick the guys on form and try and fit them in your system not the other way about.

    Don't think much will change

    Ajeti Eddie
    Christie
    Taylor McGregor Brown Frimpong
    Ajer Duffy Bitton
    Barkas

    Bitton is first choice for me in that 3rd CB role jullien will have to do a lot to dislodge him

    I would be tempted to return to the 4-2-3-1 for this given that we're at home on the big, grass pitch and Hibs won't sit in.

    Barkas
    Elhamed Duffy Ajer Taylor
    Ntcham McGregor
    Frimpong Christie Ely
    Ajeti

    I think we need to adapt our formation to use mostly our form players. With only having Taylor as left back them we play him as a left back not as a wing back, he doesn't have the pace of the skill to go past players. But to be fair, he can defend.A 4-4-2 maybe worth a try, it would raise a few eyebrows but if Hibs come at us it would make us tighter at the back to midfield, tjaysbwhere we have been giving teams so much space with the formations we have been playing.
