    I would be tempted to start him tomorrow night. Getting very worried about Forrest and his injury problems this season so far.

    Johnston just back himself but if he can’t look the part against a championship team, then it’s a worry. We need to get as many options fit and firing ASAP to try get some momentum going again.

    I remember commenting on prior to the Alkmaar away game it was important to get through not to kill our momentum and I feel a combination of not so much that game but the cheap loss to them and the international break has done that to us.

    I for sure would like to see him start tomorrow night. Give him an hour or so to build up his match fitness.

    Dont think so, guy cannot see a pass. He does have speed and skill.
    In fact, I would have Moffat over him right now, Moffat can see a pass.

    I think that's a myth, I'm sure I've seen him play defence splitting passes. You could argue that he probably holds onto the ball for too long but that decision making will improve with experience.

    I feel like he's been out of the team so much that people have forgotten what he can do. I think there are parallels between his career and Forrest's early career in terms of injuries and fan opinion of him. Hopefully Mikey can get past the injuries.

    Many times you seen Moffat play against anyone who isn’t a part time footballer?

    Moffat has done nothing to suggest he’s anywhere near as talented as Johnston.

    As much as it's been frustrating with Mikey injury wise, he has bags of talent and we need to put some faith in him purely down to the lack of numbers on the left wing. Really hope he can start putting in some good performances starting tonight.

    The way he goes past players is unbelievable, so easy for him. Get him playing regularly and he'll be a star.

    I would have agreed with you at one point, maybe the start of 2019 season when he looked like he was gonna take off. But after all the disruption last couple of years I'm not overly confident. Am more living in hope for the lad.

    The talent has never been in question for me it's just getting him playing regular football that's the problem. I think Postecoglou is the perfect manager for him, if he can get injury free, I think the manager will give him the games he needs and he can fulfill that promise. I agree though another injury disrupted year and he could end up fading away. Big year this for him imo.

    Think I'd ease him back in with another appearance off the bench tonight.

    Would go so far as to say it's probably last chance saloon now. One good showing tonight though and the buzz will be back!

    I'm sorry mate but that's pish..

    Was regularly seeing a pass and contributing before he got his long term injury. Arguably our best player at the start of the 9 season. Was linking up with the likes of Edouard brilliantly..

    He'll get a run in the side soon and show what he's about....as long as he doesn't get injured..

    Hopefully see him on from the start tonight and get a good 60 minutes or so.

    Hope so.
    The boy has talent no doubt. Rodgers last season was a bit pish on him having to play up front as necessity but he scored some cracking goals and has a natural flair.
    No a we 17/18 year old bhoy now
    He looks to have worked hard in gaining mass and I doubt that would take much from his game.
    If he does start tonight id like to monty or scales at left back
