    we could have them valencia players as our first team and playing in our league and we would still under perform in europe

    they would lose a lot of their skillset, become complacent and allow their game to deteriorate

    our players minus izzy and a deteriorating brown are well capable of beating valencia at home and putting in 100% better performance than we got tonight

    He had 2 big target men on tonight in Burke and edouard and still couldn’t bring himself to play the long ball. Sometimes ye got admit defeat and realise the other team is just better and mix it up a wee bit.

    The target man striker and one playing off seems to have disappeared these days.

    It's the same old movie in Europe. Defence is not good enough. Tippy tappy out from the back ,lose the ball and concede from a quick counter attack. I would have kept Sinclair on and moved Burke out wide and played Eddy through the middle. Our passing was poor tonight and no real penetration up front.

    Other than playing Izaguirre, I can’t fault Rodgers for that tonight. We didn’t play well and they were better than us, it’s that simple. We move on to a far bigger game on Sunday.

    Whoever he took off Sincy definitely should've stayed on, he was giving us a bit of spark and was relentless trying to make something happen. He was far more dangerous than Burke. Whenever Sincy is in that mood something usually happens

    Waste of a valentines night, we didn’t even play that poorly just outclassed by a far better team. Gets more and more depressing every season we play in Europe. Valencia play against better teams than us almost every single week in La Liga, put us in that league or any of the top 4 leagues and we are a stick on for relegation

    When the game comes around I’ll be of that same feeling mate.

    We need to have the game of our lives and for them to have a bit of stinker though tbh.

    Horrendous carry on, were stuck in our own half from like the 10th till the 65th minute. One of the worst showing at home I ever recall in Europe, Juventus and AC Milan were bad in recent times but even that AC Milan team were a step up from Valencia.

    Them playing 2 strikers * us, I thought we should have subbed Izzy, moved Toljan left and brought on Ajer at HT and went 3 at the back so we could pass it out of trouble easier and free our full-backs but we just plodded on as normal. Very poor tactics I thought, never kicked a ball until Weah and Edouard came on but by then the game was dead and buried and the stuffing was knocked out us.
