    Because scoring late winning goals shows he can deliver for us late-on under pressure and an extra 2 points could win us the title, instead of tapping it in like any decent player he decides to try a diving header that somehow goes miles wide, that sums him up. Palma, Abada and Idah have all scored late winners, Maeda is a bottle merchant when he gets his golden chance.

    Ange is long gone, this season he's got a measly 3 goals. I like my Celtic forwards to be able to score.

    Such is the chaotic nature of Maeda that he can score in the last 16 of a World Cup but miss a tap in at Fir Park.

    Technical ability is overrated. Mikey Johnston has bags of technical ability but he's half the player of Daizen.

    Kühn has a great pedigree and he's been an empty jersey so far.

    Daizen's goal contributions speak for themselves. Fair enough he's dropped off since the break, but so has Calmac and O'Riley and I don't see anyone wanting to chuck them in the bin.

    4 goals and 3 assists in 26 games is garbage. And even the second half of last season his return wasn't good.

    Maeda has been poor all season, so comparing him to O'Riley is unfair. MOR was head and shoulders the best player in Scotland until the winter break. He deserves a bit of patience. McGregor has been poor but we know he's undroppable (which I disagree with).

    It's not a reactionary thing with Maeda. Even under Ange he was still as frustrating...but we played a system that played to his strengths.

    Since the World Cup, he's played 53 games for us, 11 goals and 5 assists. Its not great really.

    They do speak for themselves. 7 goal contributions isn't good enough, by a long way.

    Doesnt fit Rodgers style. Can see him being moved on in the summer.

    He needs to be playing in a more direct system. Rodgers needs more technical quality from his players cutting in like Sinclair gave him and Maeda isnt that.

    Seems like our Japaneae contingent are all off the boil.

    Iwata being the exception.


    Hopefully just a coincidence and not a mutiny.
