    He’s still to hit his prime, but some of the criticism is valid..

    It's not just on him, no way!! However, that 2nd goal was basics!!! Only outfield player who got pass marks for me was Broony and wouldn't blame Fraser either.

    Yeah think we're going over the top.

    But as I said before I still think a role in midfield ain't out the question.

    When speaking about us losing the 50 50s , and I'm trying not to make excuses here , there has been an element in our team for a good few years that was wary of being sent off if we matched them physically and not trusting refs to be fare .
    Yesterday I feel Clancy let them away with more physical challenges than he did us and many refs have been doing this , but also cant say he didnt give us anything because no 1 would have expected us to get a pen like we did .
    I think we have to drop the be careful attitude for fear of the ref and not hold back as this does have a negative affect on us , for a number of years we could afford to get away with this as we were way out in front ,but they have got better and we now have to match them physically .

    We would get 20 million due to the fact Lee congerton is a * and Rodgers likes him and sees money as no object

    Thats an interesting take and while i agree that he was especially poor for the goal, theres no guarentee that even if he had jumped with Katic that he would have stopped him scoring.

    In my opinion, our inability to work out how to counter their press cost us. As it has cost us before. Ajer wasnt to blame then.

    That last bit, annoying as * wasn't it. Ideally a press can be countered with some quick triangles and we are away. They did it two or three times in the first half to us with ease.

    We just weren't at the races at all.

    No guarantee of course, but preventing the goal is literally his job. He wasn’t the only issue, but he was the nail in the coffin.

    Is he tho? Red cards for fouling to deny 1v1s in games that were already won at this stage. Getting caught off position by SPFL level strikers. Outmuscled in SPFL. Outpaced in Europe. No threat from corners and free kicks. Pathetic jump height compared to Jullien and others. Giving away number of fouls in a threatening position due to being too quick on getting on the back of opponents - a bit like Jullien last night. Is he really worth more than 8m? I'd say he's just a little bit better at CB than Bitton and I wouldn't say Nir is worth 7m.

    Yeah defo, hopefully we have it sussed for the next game vs them becauss i dread to imagine if we dont.

    Frustrating to see the lack of leaders in the game too. Other than Brown, i dont think anyone looked like stepping up.

    I really felt like Frimpong played with a bit of heart in that he never stopped trying to provide a bit of spark and beat a man from left back, but we cant be relying on an 18 year old to be the one to drag us back into the game. I feel like a lot of players failed him, not just Forrest.

    They had us sussed again..

    They actually looked more comfortable playing it in midfield quickly. Definitely better set-up in how they played. Our pressing was an absolute disgrace as well..

    Christie was like a headless chicken running around but then we weren't doing it as a team. That had so much more time on the ball than us...despite an energy sapping press they had on us from the first whistle..

    Need to bite the hand off Leicester if BRs ego gets the better off him and sees Ajer as a hendryesque project he can develop.
    This boy is never a defender in a million years. A footballer no doubt but I'd rather he becomes someone elses project if we can still swindle someone for 8 figures.

    What medicine is he taking for it and how many hours rest?

    The implication, given the rumours, was that there was some other reason for him not playing when in fact he’s ‘injured’.

    I apologise for the lack of full medical explanation.
