    If anything I've learned from Lenny's European selections is that he will play the more experienced/trusted. I wouldn't expect to see Turnbull or klimala in the starting line up, but both probably to make appearances.

    Hey guys, good luck on Thursday, hope it will be a fair game with no injuries and may the better team win! Here is a little presentation on what you may expect:


    4-2 with one of the main contenders for the title this year, among Zeljeznicar and Zrinjski. You may remember Tatar from 1:39 as he scored in the 2nd leg in Scotland last year :D

    Introducing, Matthias Fanimo in his prime :D (started in West Ham United):

    1/3 are way big odds away from home.

    Good bit more confident after yesterday, although still think this a distraction we don't need.

    If you think Fanimo is fast, here is Jeremie Frimpong saving a Gazelle from a Cheetah..

    Does he, though? He was the main culprit in us getting knocked out against Ferencvaros.

    Frimpong is a better player than Elhamed. He’s shown it time and time again. He needs to start

    Frimpong is better offensively, Elhamed is better defensively.

    He was poor for the 2nd goal against Ferencvaros but I can forgive him that. He's shown against the likes of Lazio and for Israel that he's a solid defender.

    Frimpong is a fine defender. Seems to be this myth that he isn’t.

    I like Elhamed, but Frimpong is a better option. Be it RB or RWB.

    I'm not saying he's a poor defender but Elhamed is better for me.

    Better in the air, better positional awareness, better in the tackle.

    Elhamed has more experience and height, and looks better in the air. Frimpong is a better player overall though. I think we've seen some signs this season as to why we got Elhamed as cheap as we did.

    Aye, he's our first choice RWB at this point and deservedly so.

    If Sarajevo do have very pacy wingers then the right way to be defensively sound while offering a threat going forward would be to have El hamed as RB with Frimpong RW assuming we go 4 at the back.

    Similarly I would want El Hamed at RCB in a 3 due to his recovery pace. Then with Frimpong at RWB in front of him. Either option makes us extremely solid down the right hand side both defensively and offensively.

    Elhamed has literally made one mistake in his Celtic career, Frimpong is better going forward Elhamed is a better defender, that's not even a debate tbh.

    I think Frimpong should play but if he plays a 4-2-3-1 he may not start him.

    Also, for a smaller guy, Frimpong is very strong and is excellent at shielding balls out of play etc. He really is great offensively and defensively for me.

    No he hasn’t ffs:giggle1:

    He’d be starting every single game for us (if he’s fit) if that’s the case. Elhamed is a good player but he got better the longer he was out last season.

    A good rotation player and can fill in in a few positions, but we have better than him.
