    This will be a shootout, I fancy us massively to score at least 2 or 3 . With our defence unfortunately I can't see us not conceding.
    3-1 to the good guys !

    Should probably go with the same team and keep the momentum up..

    Have some concerns about getting done out wide. Need Christie and McGregor to help the full back's..

    I'm very confident we'll hurt them going the other way though..

    Edouard and Griff with Turnbull in behind. We're 100% scoring a couple..

    We should be quietly confident here..

    We can do these. If we do....it's game on..

    Let's set about them, let them worry about us and our formation, different Celtic to the 1 at Celtic park. 3-1 to the hoops.

    I'm more confident about this all the time. We are getting better and they are losing their way.

    We have to attack them and pin them back.

    I'm honestly fairly confident going into this. They'll obviously be favourites but I think Roofe has been majorly carrying them in recent games, a loss and the title is pretty much over and a Draw still leaves a lot to catch up on, but i'm quietly confident about a win, especially if Jullien is fit and that ease of mind Brown won't be starting.

    2-1 us, Turnbull and Griff.

    Cant play the diamond their full backs will thrive against our two diddy fullbacks.

    Cant play 4231 as it leaves the forward isolated

    Cant play 352 as it leaves us 1 vs 1 against their front 3 at the back and their fullbacks bombing onto our diddies.

    Our defence is * rank rotten even today at times against championship level strikers we look *.

    Slippy knows how to play they know how to play and we are so tacticslly inept its laughable.

    Except 2 games since slippy has came in they have dominated every game.

    Will be a chastening experience for most celtic fans on saturday they will win by 3 or more!

    Would love to say otherwise but it simply wont happen

    4-4-2 with a diamond in midfield. We will cause them problems going forward if we can play with the same tempo and fluidity shown versus Hamilton and Dundee Utd.

    We need to get into our defensive shape quickly when out of possession and trust our players to win their individual battles.

    We cannot afford to go into this game with a defensive mindset. We need to impose our style on the match and get on the front foot. I’d rather lose trying to win than sit back and lose.

    Barkas

    Frimpong Jullien Ajer Laxalt

    Soro

    Christie McGregor

    Turnbull

    Edouard Griffiths

    If Jullien is out then I’m not sure what we should do. I don’t fully trust Bitton or Duffy.

    If Lennon changes it, it’ll be something like this:

    Barkas

    Ajer Jullien Duffy Taylor

    Soro McGregor

    Frimpong Turnbull Christie

    Edouard

    Have a horrible, horrible feeling he’ll somehow slot Brown in for this...

    Another thing is they don't have the crowd baying for blood and screaming for every tackle..

    They were extremely comfortable at ours with no crowd. I know we had covid and injuries but the tempo wasn't the same..

    That should work in our player's favour the weekend where we will have time to impose our game and should dominate the midfield with the 4 in there..

    No chance, if Brown was starting he would have started today or even the last game. The only real worry for me is when he brings brown on, hopefully around the 75th minute when we're winning 3-0

    Playing with a bit more confidence,but i feel we are still fragile at the back and this could be our undoing.Its a pity lenny has took so long to sort things out and our defence/keeper still needs sorting as i think they will have to much for us.

    On a positive note were getting goals from midfield and frimpong is getting into the danger area so this should keep them occupied for parts of the game and give our defence a break.
