    He's genuinely been woeful. Kept giving the ball away and all over the place..

    Surely we should've played the second string for an hour against Nice and the first team here as we would've known roughly what we were up against..

    Up against some real quality here tonight. Depay, Dembele, Aouar. Tough ask for the young boys to stand out against them. Great to see Henderson again though.

    El Hamed is getting terrorised.

    Wee Dembele will need to help him out as he's struggling badly.

    It's madness mate.
    I know I can be a negative * at times when the season gets going, some players will irk me and the management will * me off when they don't do what i expect. But this is the same every pre-season.

    It is friendlies and not one player on that pitch right now will be in the starting squad for 90% of the games in full competition.

    Tell a lie, Ntcham will.

    Christ, at least 4 of them won't see more than 5 games all season, including subs on the 90th minute.

    All about minutes in the legs, rotation, fitness and seeing if anyone is showing signs of taking a step up.

    Results mean nothing. Win or lose.

    Thought we'd maybe adapt and try to be a bit more compact and harder to play through, but we've been wide open so far. We've left huge gaps for Lyon to play through and they're good enough to do it. They could easily have taken three off us in that first ten minutes.

    Always used to think he would ease into things here, and in fairness I think he had a positive wee spell after the win at Ibrox. But aye the more you see him he just looks a little clumsy.

    You go from panic merchant to super confident in the space of a couple of posts at times, got a cheek to moan about anyone.

    Aye, hearing Lennon shouting "Boli where you going" was a bit worrying earlier, just drifting in to the middle of the park and leaving the LB position and thus not giving the out ball. His positional and team awareness is shocking.

    Totally agree. All about minutes in the legs these games, but also gives some of these fringe players that chance.
