    he doesn't seem capable of running at people or trying to take a ball past them

    Bullied in the challenge, no pace, no strength no guile or ability.

    We NEED a left back, no Taylor’s fault as he gives his all.

    Can't argue with that..

    When a 35 year old Craig Conway has you on toast and leaves you for dead hitting the ppst....then you can see just how * we are on the left..

    Had to put Christie there just to get him off..

    He received it in acres of space second half. Took a touch and by the time he sorted his self out....it was a goalkick..

    I could feel myself going red for him..

    I genuinely feel a bit sorry for him. I’d play left back for Celtic if I was asked and I’m atrocious

    edit ^ that post above from Maguire, yeah that was a shocker

    Think he actually looks decent when cutting infield which allowed McGregor to push up higher and wide.

    His deliveries today were awful

    Not great today. We really need someone with a bit of pace in there.

    Teams can afford to double up on Frimpong as we don’t offer the same threat on the left with Taylor..

    Especially when we play one up top, he doesn’t have the accuracy to pick out a player consistently.

    Just not a LWB.

    Not Taylor’s fault that. If teams are doubling up on Frimpong, if we’re using today as the example Ntcham should be moving into the space afforded. Driving forward.

    Similar on the opposite side because Conway was also doubling up on Taylor. McGregor did help out slightly more in that case though.

    Nearly every single ball out to him around the box results in it going back or into the middle again,i'm not sure why the team even bother. Let the lad stick to defending and get someone else in pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    Aye, it’s not his fault he’s been played as LWB as he’s not.. especially when we play 3-5-1-1

    I like him but we need better.

    I feel sorry for the boy.

    the abuse he gets online is way over the top.

    I mentioned in the match thread that we were heavy on personnel down the right and he was on his own on the left.

    some of his decision making is poor though and the constant hitting the first man with a cross is a wage docking crime.

    he’s also called Greg, that’s a shame.

    It's not his fault we have no alternative at the moment, but for Christ's sake, he's got to do better at times considering how much of the ball he sees. I mind one decent cut back the whole game.

    There is no way we should be asking this guy to play LWB, just has not got it.
