    Looked geriatric, it's a real concern that Lenny is watching this and still continues to play him.

    He is hoaching right now, and keeping Calmac down imo, Lennon needs to put faith into Calmac to take over.

    We have all written off Broony time and time again and it's always been a pleasure watching him prove us all wrong. Unfortunately I don't see him proving us wrong this season.
    Whilst he hasn't started the season brightly, I felt like tonight was the first time he looked his age. Coming off second best in his duels, misplacing passes. Those are the things I seen tonight and I cannot recall him doing anything of any note. In his defence it is hard to impress when your playing a team that has every man behind the ball mind.

    Love the man but we cannot be blinded our love and loyalty to him. If things don't improve, which they may not, then we have to look at a game plan that doesn't involve him in.

    Fingers crossed with game time he finds another gear or two

    I don’t mean to be dramatic but he absolutely must be dropped. Lennon has to be aware of how poor he is playing.

    Crazy to expect him to play so much football, he needs rested and dropped from time to time..

    Huns made the same error going for ten, it could be lennons downfall continuing to play brown.

    A bit of pace or feint takes you by him now, hes had 5 bookings already, if he was a dog he would be going to the farm!

    He has to be dropped milk turns quicker than him now. Erwin chopped inside and got a shot off and he still hadn't turned back fully

    I think it’s beyond just resting him and dropping him now and then.

    I just don’t see what he offers the team at the best of times, in the vast majority of our matches. If we play a back 3, playing him is pointless. It’ll be like having 4 centre backs.

    We should now be using him as a last resort, imo. We have younger, fitter centre mids who are better on the ball.

    Honestly that has to be the last game as fully first choice for us, he was absolutely horrendous. Lennon has to start easing in Turnbull and Soro, playing Brown in these games is going to eventually cost us.

    Hopefully with the leadership Duffy brings it will make it easier to drop him..

    Really off the pace and zero influence. Huns have bullied us in midfield a few times recently and I’m worried that they’ll run over the top of Brown and McGregor.

    Turnbull, Ntcham, Rogic could all be in ahead of him based on his current form.

    He can’t play forever, we need to start phasing him out. He still has a role to play but it isn’t playing every week.

    He's done. It's that obvious for me..

    I'd be amazed if he came back from this. He won't..

    If Lenny doesn't feel like Soro or anyone else is ready to take over the mantle from a 35 year old Broony who's been run in to the ground....then that is woefully on him and our recruitment..

    Either play the fresh blood we have or bring in a 6 right now..

    Broony isn't daft, he'll know..

    We definitely need a midfield enforcer. Out of all the centre midfielders we have none of them are physically imposing and tough in the tackle. The Wanyama boat has sailed but someone like him would be ideal.

    * I wish Vic was still with us. A Wanyama clone would be fantastic right about now. Replace Brown/Taylor with CalMac/Connell, respectively, and give that a go.

    Taylor does an average job for his position. KT was lethal and is showing it to everyone in Europe and, unfortunately, Boli is on holiday, we need an alternative.

    Finished. Stick N'tcham or Ajer in his place.

    He can still play his part this season, but he can’t play the amount of games he’s been starting, crazy.

    Last season he picked up 11 yellow cards in 50 games.

    He already has 5 yellows in 8 games this season.

    Seemingly if he gets booked this weekend he’ll miss the game against huns. Wouldn’t mind him starting against Livi if that’s true.

    This isn’t the year for sentiment, sorry but we can’t just play him on reputation alone. Browns been a huge asset to us, but every player gets to the stage in their career when the know themselves they’re not up to the pace or standard. Even the last few games against the scum he’s not played well, unable to lift the lads, the brown of old would get torn into them for playing *, recently he’s shunned that.

    Sorry to say this if we play brown against sevco we are * as we need younger guys in there for pace and zip the ball up to the forwards and wingers .
