    Also that Bolingoli fits best into Ange's system of the left backs we have

    In some ways they are excellent, if you regard shamefaced cheating as something to excel at.

    Bolingoli should be starting for us, Juranovic clearly isn't a LB.

    Bernard Higgins has the makings of a brilliant signing for Celtic PLC.

    the game's been rigged in scotland for 100 years. its odd how 'poor refereeing' always seems to benefit one particular club / successor club...

    This current team doesn’t have the character nor mentality to win a league title. Far too passive and nowhere near clinical enough.

    Maybe so but foremost I don't think we have enough depth in the squad to win a title and only having rogic and Turnbull as your only options in attacking midfield is a joke we need another two players in that area .

    Agree on lack of depth but so far this season we 100% needed at least one more box to box midfielder, probably two.

    I will give a pass on Tynecastle as very early in Ange’s reign with half a squad, and some blatant poor officiating.

    The other games Ibrox too many failed to turn up as they have done for a while, two of the main culprits left right enough. Livi away was as bad a performance as we have had. Particular Dundee Utd at home and today at home there were enough situations where we should have ended up scoring but we didn’t. Too many panic and fail to take a decent touch or hide and fail to gamble on a cross or a ball breaking their way in the box. Too many simply pass the buck and always play the easy square pass instead of taking on their man or when they get half a yard having a go.
    Livi totally parked the bus but we made it easy for them. When we tried to attack their box and they cleared the ball our holding midfielder and centre backs were camped on our half way line instead of squeezing the game up. Juranovic hardly went past the edge of their box to drag defenders away and left Jota or Johnston double or triple teamed. Giakoumakis never really showed for the ball. McGregor just knocked sideways passes all day and turned down about 3 great shooting opportunities, Turnbull takes 3 touches to decide what he is going to do with it and just totally slows the play. Don’t even start me on Bitton.

    So here is one...

    Today's protest by the GB.

    I am not disputing the rights or wrongs of the issue at hand, but the decision to do a silent protest for 30 minutes only served to punish the team. We are at home and right or wrong, but having rhe roar of the crowd can help the players lift, but the prolonged silence meant that while there was possession, the tempo remained flat for a pretty long time today, and once get into that it can sometimes be a little harder to get out of that.

    So while the obvious lion's share for today's lacklustre showing does fall on the team and ultimately the manager, I would suggest that the GB take a minute to reflect on what happened today and potentially how their actions may've effected the performance also, before deciding to hold another such prolonged 'silent' protest.

    There are, after all, no shortage of other methods that can be utilized to make their points known to the Board, without punishing the team.

    I get that this was a protest but why a silent one, what was the thinking behind that, i mean why should the team on the park be penalised ?

    We'd have been better off keeping Vakoun Issouf Bayo instead of signing Giakmoumakis.

    A lot of people are waiting for Ralston to not play as well as he has been because they had made up their minds about him for the last couple of years and don’t like being wrong.

    And there’s a small section that still do it with McGregor and especially Forrest, which is why you see a lot of regurgitated opinions from 2014 about Forrest. It’s much more blatant with ma Tony bhoy and wrap it ya chodes

    Lubo Moravcik was the poor man's Brian Laudrup.

    Couldn’t be further apart in playing style so you’ve just taken 2 random players and made a statement for a reaction, bro.

    However, if you want to talk about natural ability, Lubo is head and shoulders above Laudrup and indeed any hun I care to remember.
