    Barkas coming in and not being the keeper we had hoped for has caused us a huge problem. Bain is not the answer and Neil Lennon knows it otherwise we would not have shelled out £5 million on a new keeper. As it stands both keepers are a huge step down from Forster, our best hope is that Barkas starts showing why he was highly rated.

    We've been badly let down by all the summer additions, Laxalt and turnbull excepted. The other 4 were "marquee" signings and all have been hugely disappointing. This is a big factor in where we are so far, your big signings need to make a difference, ours just haven't.

    Think we're starting to see why 3 of those players were languishing at their previous clubs with limited game time.

    Either we change the manager or the manager changes his values !!! If that happens then yes we will win the league!! Manager cant rely on picking a team !! Manager must show teams more respect and actually study them and help the team a bit !! Stubborn tactics are a massive no no !! Be a manager and manage !!!

    We are 13 goals behind them now, albeit with two games in hand; we need a few more big wins soon.

    Disagree entirely with this. Ajeti has been a good addition, Elyanoussi signing up again and he is scoring the goals very week. Laxalt is top class. We have an abundance of quality all throught this team. Enough to win the league.

    I'm dissapointed with Barkas, he must be struggling to adapt to Scotland. He's gone from diving into his swimming pool in Greece to a locked down Glasgow and Scotland. That and he's not made a save. A total rip off from the Greeks. We need to bring in a new keeper in January.

    They’ll win it pretty comfortably in the end.

    Same answer I gave already. Very few signs of optimism, and basically praying for a hun collapse.

    At present it doesn’t necessarily take much of a collapse for us to be right back up with them
    They’ve only played 6 away games to our 8
    Dropped points at Livingston, dropped at Easter road to a hibs team that more than matched them, scraped past an Aberdeen team with no striker 1-0 and scrapped past killie 2-0 with their usual penalty to help them out, playing well just now but definitely think they will drop more points and after the international break we need to do what we are capable of and did last year and go on a Winning run to Christmas

    I don’t doubt they’ll drop points. I’ll doubt we’ll find the consistency required to capitalise on it.

    Right now we look the far more likely to drop points or outright collapse even.

    I'll be honest and say I'm not that confident at the moment.

    We are stuck in a negative rut and they are looking very confident. They look like they are improving and look far fitter and hungrier than us. I'm not sure we'll see another collapse.

    We are behind and they are on a good run of form. We look more likely than them to drop points.

    What a season for us to collapse. Would've rather it be last season or one before, would've been easier to take. Not the * season we go for 10.

    Still early days obviously but on the showing so far it's not looking good at all.

    We’ll win almost all of our games vs the rest of the league, that isn’t a worry for me with or without Lennon.

    The worry is the fact that he’s overseen us being made to look the inferior side in the last 3 games vs them and that he has no clue what to do to combat their play style.

    Unless we change manager we’ll be relying on them * up massively against the other teams.

    I don't think it's accurate at all to lay the blame at Barkas. The only thing I'd agree with here is that he's a step down from Forster.
