    My mistake I only looked at the Goals For column in home games and assumed it was the entire league.

    I keep thinking the players must know what pressure is like as each game passes

    But this on Sunday is unbelievably massive

    Time to stand up and be counted. Start Griff and let's * pump them.

    Without the crowd they aren’t feeling the pressure. Just treating every game as a training game, literally having zero contact with fans atm either unless what they see on social media but I bet most struggle to even look after games likes that.

    dreading this myself

    i think weve reached the point where it doesnt matter what lennon does its gonna * collapse because he is trying to fix something thats happening as a result of himself, i.e. hes the problem

    the way i see it now is that either he plays his favourites which hasnt been working or he miraculously changes them out for the guys weve spent a lot of money on to improve us and have been sitting in the stand most of the season

    if he does the latter would they be motivated to help a guy whose not gave them respect or the time of day ?

    like us all id love us to turn this around but there seems to be so many parks that aint working and when some of them do lots dont work

    rogic was * first half last night better 2nd half mcgregor is being use to support browns legs rather than play his own game and his play and ours is suffering as a result, eddie is not a traditional center forward in his first season his best postion as playing of the left hand side and having the space to run at opponents hes not a center forward

    you know the 3 attackers we play it doesnt need to be in the formation of 2 wingers and a striker it could be 3 strikers

    we big enough squad to change systems and personal for any particular game we play it maybe not good for continuity of performance but then we havent got that either just now so we do it until we start seeing better over all performances and tweak it for individual games

    neil lennon needs to take neil lennnons ego out of this and do whats best for the club and team

    id like us to see us take the wingers out of the games for a while because i dont think were getting as much as we can from that postion the biggest problem is that they arent interlinking with the striker as much as we need

    just play 3 strikers eddie of the left ajet and leigh of the right there not playing wide right or wide left all the time we dont need them to do that we have laxalt and frimpong to damage teams in the wide areas
    we badly need more striker interplay with one another which will create chances and allow us to get more shots of at goal and score more goals

    I predict Lennon will be in dugout, we will get a result probably a 1-0. Board will wait for it to calm down a bit with international break and we will basically kick the can down the road.

    This is what I think will happen too.

    Maybe even score 2 or 3 but the points won't be safe until late, late on in the game. Usual.

    Bitton is definitely not 100% fit and along with the Symphony of the Seas next to him, I fear almost any opponent attack. I'd fire Welsh in there. Needs some bold action. Get Frimpong further up the pitch and away from RB.

    Honestly couldn't give a toss. Just feel so apathetic about us the now. Sad to say.

    This. Dreading the Motherwell game after last night's showing.

    Stick on to be 0-0 or losing at HT I think.

    Lennon should be nowhere near the stadium.

    The the lineup should be, imo;


    Barkas
    Elhamed, Welsh, bitton, laxalt
    Christie, Turnbull, McGregor
    Rogic
    Griffith's, ajeti

    5 subs and we should have connell, frimpong, dembele, soro and klimala all coming on at various points in the second half.

    Get a team of players on who want to be here, who want to play for us.
    Then get a few younger ones to come on and show what they can do.

    Ntcham, brown, Ely, Édouard, Duffy, get them to *.
    Either not good enough, massively off form (even beyond the general lack of form from the squad) or simply don't want to be here.

    Id love to see:

    ............... Barkas
    El hamed Welsh bitton laxalt
    Dembele christie turnbull Johnston
    ............. griff eddy

    Not that I think Eddie deserves to start but we played our best football last year with them 2 up top, plenty of mobility and running in the middle of the park with christie and turnbull to support defence and attack with ntcham and ajeti to come up for griff and one of the CMs, pace and trickery on the wings and just something different which surely cant be worse than what we have seen this season so far. Ideally ajer or jullien would be available but ABD (anyone but duffy) is an improvement. Not sure on mikeys fitness but he's been back training for a while I'm sure. Rogic on very early if things aren't going to plan. A bit of fight and pride in the shirt more important than a slick performance imo. Bitton to take the armband.
