    These two guys show up well against us because we do not have one single player in our entire squad, that I have seen anyway, who possesses the ability/slyness/know how to deal with these types of players. A wee sneaky elbow in the lower back,a stamp on the foot or a * big dirty barge into the midriff. They know we are timid in the midfield. That is why they look good against us. That more than anything scunners me.

    Ma * eyes hurt after watching that.

    50 yerd fitba against against *, playing on plastic * in a part of the country that mostly smells a cow *.

    Add to that, we now need to listen to * commentators on a * channel.

    Summary, you guessed it - jobby!

    I don't agree with this. You need wingers or full backs to be brace. Commit defenders. Go by them. Eliminate them. You then force centre backs to possibly come out of position and leave space for Eddy.

    Was dreadful there pretty much everyone had a poor game, Edouard losing it every time, 4 wide guys never really beat anyone or got a good ball in. Brown, McGregor, Christie and Ntcham not doing anything.

    Struggled badly to do anything and had no Bayo (or Fletcher :88:) to use up front to throw balls at.

    maybe you don’t mate and fair enough but a lot of Celtic fans will watch the Huns obviously the last 2 games before today because they would be thinking “ Huns might slip up today at pittodrie “, or on Wednesday cause you’re thinking “ hope the Huns get pumped “

    obviously a few Huns would have watched that today and all we are saying is , they would be fairly happy with what they saw from us

    as would any Celtic fan had the Huns been as pish as we were

    Our fans drag us through that game for me.

    The bottle merchants on the dark side will love having no fans, we get the points there if we do have them imo.

    The closest we have to Sutton/Hartson got loaned out because the club don't have the patience to give him some chances.

    It’s more their want to make blocks, interceptions and win the 50/50’s that * us. Not the slyness.

    We all knew we’d miss FF... but I think Ajer and Julien are missing him more. We were so dominant in terms of possession and attack last season that they had a fairly easy ride... plus FF cleaned up so many of their errors that he kept a bit of heat off them as well.

    I know the performances were poor all over the park today but.....

    Lenny has GOT to get the defence sorted out ASAP... last time I had genuine confidence in our back line was when we had Denayer and VVD..

    Really think this sums it up.

    We can blame individual players but at the end of the day we had time and player s to fix our mistakes.We didnt do that because we couldnt break them down.

    With 20 to go we should have been putting in crosses instead of trying to walk the ball into the net,i know they tried to get some crosses in but to me they were to close to killie defenders.

    Its frustrating as * to see a performance like that(aside from the goal i cant remember their keeper having a save to make)but to me it boils down to an opposition knowing how to cancle us out and us not haveing an alternative plan.

    This is the 'heat map' on the BBC website.

    Shows how little we created in the box.

    @Slater67 you * that last message so I can’t quote it.

    I don’t watch them, I’ve got better things to do than watch a team I hate.

    Was actually thinking this during the game ( 'bout Rugby League tho).Not sure tho. Have enjoyed some wonderful injury time goals over the years with no idea if we still had time or no. JVOH v DOBs. Robbie Keane v Germany etc. Would it even aid the timewasters as they know exactly how much longer they have to time waste for ?

    Just for perspective, last 10 games at Rugby Park, our win percentage is

    60%

    And that includes two 90th minute winners

    It's a * place to go (not excusing the * show of a performance today)

    We never got near their box at all, Edouard was playing in Rogic areas, was like we had no striker. Must have hit about 15 shots from 20+ yards as well
