    The form we're in is absolutely shocking. We look stale and static going forward, fragile at the back. Some players don't look like they're giving their all, while the likes of Brown look well off the pace. We have no right backs I'm fully confident in and our centre half situation is an embarrassment.

    On the other hand, while I think we have a higher quality of squad, Sevco are in good form and are playing with confidence. Any team looks like they can score against us and Lafferty and Morelos will give us problems. I don't believe anyone who thinks we'll smash them next week.

    Wouldn't go as far as saying they were favourites, but they've shown they can defend at least better than they did last season. We, on the other hand, concede every time the ball goes anywhere near our defence. And we've shown a worrying inability to break anyone down.

    We don't have any stand outs going forward this season.

    Looking at their starting XI tonight gives me hope we'll stuff them again. It's a terrible team in all honesty, but momentum is currently with them and we need to stop playing ridiculously *.

    On form, yes they are.

    Anyone saying otherwise is kidding themselves on.

    We are playing Deila-esque fitba.

    It's pathetic and Rodgers needs to take a good hard look at himself.

    Suspect the bookies odds will be very very similar to be fair.

    They are in form just now and we are clearly not.

    Both will probably be around 6/5.

    If somebody doesn't give them a kick up the * then I agree.

    Problem is everyone of them are playing on a crest of a wave and they look better than us all over the park.

    Looking at it now I'm going a draw is the best we'll get, I was going to go 0-0, but Morelos is defo scoring with that defence, that's how bad its got.

    Ntcham, Mcgregor and Forrest are way off form In past few weeks.

    They are in a good run of form, with real momentum behind them. We are the opposite.

    People are * deluding themselves if they don’t think the huns will give us a serious test.

    I think it will be a draw which will suit Sevco.

    1-1 or 2-2.

    If they're ever going to beat us this is their best chance, Murty got draws against us and we were nowhere near this bad at the time * knows what a win for them would do to our confidence cause we look bereft at the moment, a win for us and they'll think they can never beat us.

    Their supporters seem more confident than ever, but it's simply because they are assembling a better squad than they've had for years. I still reckon we'll beat them comfortably.

    Have to admit, its been a long time since I didnt feel really optimistic ahead of a huns game, they've improved theres no doubt about it but its the drop in our form thats worrying me.
    My hope is that this is the game that will pull us together, the team will click and we blow them away.
    Like I say its hope rather than optimism.

    Maybe going into this game playing at home as underdogs might shake things up.
