    Said at the weekend Jozo was a better player for us.....and we would have been better signing McKenna anaw

    He isn't the type of player who has played at a ball playing massive club.
    Hes the rough and tumble underdog end of.

    Don’t know people are acting as if Jozo being better than Duffy is some sort of outlandish opinion.

    The hype around him signing by a lot of our fans was simply because he was Irish.

    Boyata, Jozo, Erik... all far, far better options than Duffy.

    Watch Ireland fairly regularly so I think he is actually a decent player. Might be just a bad week as I thought he was relatively okay before that.

    Would genuinely need to go back to Virgil and Denayer to find CB’s who have not made numerous, abominable errors for us. Issue for Duffy is he’s made too many in one week - hopefully that’s his quota done for the season.

    And if my auntie had baws she'd be my uncle.

    He is a bombscare he has cost us and we didn't hold for that minute so all this pish is invalid

    He can’t deny we’ve not hit form at all yet, despite only losing 1 game. He’s annoying me.

    I’ll give him his due, it’s good to see him bite back a little of the media. It needs to spur the team on though. No point just saying it in a press conference.

    Probably doesn't want him worrying about a climate hoax. :56:

    The problem with Duffy is quite simple the way I see it. I watched him play for Yeovil in the Championship, and they were down the bottom of the league most of the time he was there. And its been similar with Brighton.

    Hes fine when they are holding a deep line as he can attack the ball going forward. I think at Celtic, as we are on the front foot most of the time (or at least thats what we think!!) then he is playing higher up the pitch than what hes been used to. He an absolute Titanic when it comes to pace and turning, so no wonder hes being caught out. Its not been his type of game. Now, who should have scouted that, thats the question Id be asking.

    Having green blood running through your veins, doesnt suddenly make up for the lack in ability. Though passion can go along way, it only takes you so far.

    He is a major major concern..

    Let's be honest, he shouldn't be in the side now and that's whether you rate him or no. He's just all over the place and probably at his lowest confidence wise..

    He was rash even before the challenge for the penalty..

    He’s an accident waiting to happen. It was outside the box, but it’s so needless.

    Just force the guy wide and slow him down.

    10 yards behind the rest of the defence then does well to track the run then * up with a daft tackle
