    Brown never just had a bad game. He forgot he wasnt a goal keeper.

    This is why it was so important we nabbed McGinn last year. Would have been so perfect right now.

    Brown is far from done but him and Ntcham doesnt seem to work . If we play high pressing teams Brown struggles so i would rather have Ntcham and Calmac . Our best football last year was when we had neither in the team Christie Callum and Rogic

    I wouldnt say he is "far" from being done.

    I dont think hes utterly finished but at the same time it's not far off. Your last sentence there kind of sums that up. Our best football is now without him in the side.

    The same pish regurgitated, he is hardly done.

    Actually since Rodgers has left, he has been the best of the whole central midfield. Personally I'd drop Ntcham, although I agree Brown can be rested especially against some of the dross we play in SPL but seem to want a ball winner.

    The two players who are out of form as can be are 1. My favourite player Tom Rogic, hasn't looked fit 2nd half of last season, obviously out this season and 2. Callum McGregor who has been absolute pish since BR has left, even this season he's been easily the poorest of all that have played in Central midfield, so do we drop him?

    He was pivotal last season, especially after Rodgers left.. it was essential he was part of the fabric of the club that got us over the line..

    He’s been pivotal in lots of ways during 8IAR..

    However, we are simply a better more dynamic side without him and he should gradually play less and less..

    He becomes a dilemma more than a first pick now... For example Ibrox is it more of a risk to play him?

    Scott Brown has been and is a fantastic Celtic player and captain. FWIW I thought he had a decent game on tuesday. Lennon and other managers have played him as a sitting midfielder because of his energy and drive and the influence that can have on the team. However, the one glaring flaw all of them have is that to play this role the first thing a holding midfielder must have is positional sense. He doesn't have that, certainly not at champions league level. Too many times I have sat at CP and watched him get over involved in individual battles and get pulled out of position. He isn't to blame for Tuesday although * knows why he handled that ball. He will undoubtedly still feature prominently til the end of the season. Other's can argue the merits of that. I can't be arsed arguing over things will we will never influence anymore. Ie. Lawell,transfer budgets etc.

    He can't be an automatic first pick anymore, even if its a loan we need another CDM this season (unless Eboue is ready?)

    As with Tierney, Rogic and McGregor, we've chronically over-relied and over-played Broony. The difference is with those guys is he's 34, plays a style and role that requires a lot of physicality, and we don't really have a comparable replacement to step in for him.

    It's coming back to bite us, but Lennon has to learn (quickly) that if you want the best from him you have to pick and choose the games wisely.

    Absolute madness that he played against Motherwell.

    Definitely a risk, but one I think Lennon will take.

    That’s what I’m mean with it’s a dilemma mate, it will be a battle so could be a risk not to play him..

    It hurts to say it but I think we'd be better off without him in the side tbh.

    It’s a tough one for Lenny, no doubt... but you just feel it could make or break him. Playing him too much could cost us..

    On the other hand going to Ibrox without him and we could get ragdolled.

    We have the last 2 games there with him, as well as Tuesday.

    As you said, we play our best football without him so for that reason I'd start him on the bench.

    I think we 100% would be a better side without him in, love him and everything he's done for us but there comes a time where he needs to realise he's done.

    We all love Broony but it's not in anyone's best interests for him to start every single game. It's ok to drop/rest your captain. Please learn this Lenny.

    Like everyone else I think he needs to play less. The only difference is I'd play Ajer in the centre with McGregor and play jullien with jozo as the centrehalfs with Christie off Eduard.

    There’s no way he should be starting at the bigot dome. He will be run ragged.
