    I support Celtic, doesn't mean I think we will win any game. It isn't just 2 draws and a loss. It's 13 points behind the huns, being knocked out at home to Ross County, being embarrassed twice by Sparta Prague. Conceding more goals than * Dundalk in Europe. Playing * in almost every game this season. Scraping wins in the league and in Europe. Brown, Ntcham, Bitton, Elhamed, Christie and Eddy were not part of us beating Lille and Eddy barely played a part in beating Killie. They have not proved they can walk over Hearts to me.

    Klimala will pull the slow diet defence apart..

    Even if he doesn't score his self. Someone else will due to his energy..

    Is Christie the most ball hungry player in the world - he def would eat himself, him and Tavernier - who gave Christie the right to hit all corners, free kicks and pens - surely when he hits a * corner he says '* ill let another player do a better job' … he keeps on trying and is dog * at them. last 2 games we scored from corners - both came from turnbull :)

    id say eddie comes in buzzing to training like tommy gravesen and then looks up and can see lennon approaching eating his snuff and Christie slapping on his brylcreem and goes '* this for a game of dart's and wants away.

    Stubbs or mjallby to coach shore up the team and another attack minded coach.. is it just me or does our coaching staff seen so light compared to previous years?

    Let Griffiths start, he hates them!

    However if that was going to be the plan, he probably would have come on as a sub recently.

    So it's another frustrating 70mins for Edouard looking half arsed while we look for goals elsewhere on the park.

    headless chicken - you want a striker who can score from a free kick, can score from outside the box and play on the shoulder of their defence , griff is the best striker in the club. If lennon wont use him send him to hibs on loan and he can damage rangers in the second part of the season - start using our assets wisely. eddie and griff seem to work well id start both of them - nothing to fear on sunday. win well and send out a sign the bhoys are back. need confidence going into this hun fixature in jan

    did alright lol should have took it with the right but tried with the left - he should have went out in loan this season to get league experience. no better feeling than seeing the thumb score a goal he loves it. that goal v Aberdeen was unbelievable. give him a start lennon he deserves it!

    Fully agreed and have been saying it for ages that Griffiths is the best striker at Celtic. Unleash him on the Diets. For sure, he’d terrorise them.

    Honestly don't know who should start up front for us on Sunday. Eddy isn't bothering his *, Kimala is full of running but isn't lethal enough in front of goal, Griffith's, for some reason, isn't being given the chance to show us if he still has it or not and Ajeti has been a major disappointment. Hopefully the manager can see who is up for it and who is looking good at training this week.

    Sending a few of players to other clubs to take points of rangers is not a bad idea, if a little risky. They need to drop points outside of playing us. Ship klimala, ajeti and Griffiths out to SPFL and bring in proven striker in January. Last resort but needs must if we drop any more points come January.

    Those players haven't really contributed to any of our points recently so we could afford to loan them out.

    I fear he will tear apart the midfield that's done so well to give a little bit of attacking direction to the side and forward movement.

    For me the line up should be


    Hazard
    Ajer, Duffy, Julien, laxalt
    Soro, McGregor
    Christie, Turnbull, Ely
    Griffith's

    Trying to be fair to what Lennon may deem as the guys who got us to the final but not ruining the small steps we are taking this past week to improving this season.

    Hazard for Barkas wouldn't bother me.
    Personally I wouldn't play Christie ever again, but I know Lennon will as much as possible so I'm accepting he can to right side, but he needs telt that he is playing as a winger/inside forward on that side and not to be floating around the left corner flag!

    Griffith's surely deserves a start and has proven against this mob plenty of times before and is a perceived lesser side to be eased back in to the side along with fitting the bill of being fair to players who got us to the final.

    The actual fear though is ntcham, brown, Christie, Édouard all start.

    If he's determined to play Brown, play him up front instead of Edouard. Couldn't do much worse.

    Seriously though. If he does have to play then it has to be just him for Soro and Klimala or Ajeti for Edouard and that's it.

    he is head and shoulders above our other options, who would you like to see one v one against Craig Gordon on Sunday, last minute ? Klimala or Edouard?? Be honest now.
