Defensive Concerns

We need someone to attack the ball when a cross comes in, hopefully julien will do that.

We're poor at crosses and we offer too much space on the wings by inverting the full backs, to be honest these are problems which should be easily identified and rectified.

Spot on. We never concede a goal that’s down to good attacking always a mistake. The fans know we need to improve in defence but the over the top reaction from media is funny. Walker et al just loving it when we concede. Pity for them that they can’t blame Starfelt for everything at the minute!!

The race is only 30% complete with some early jostling out of the way and Celtic are well behind. Having steadied the ship there is little pressure on Ange relative to the other side of the city, however. You can say it will be decided on attack - one that failed to score against Livi - you may be correct?

I reckon the league will still be up for grabs post split, exciting tbh.

Fun fact

Celtic had 4 more points, had scored 4 more goals and conceded only 2 fewer this time last season around the time when the fans were taking to the car park to demand Lennon go. Same points gap behind Rangers that they are now as well

Funny how the same statuses can be perceived very differently.

We were really poor last season, really poor. Difficult to watch.

This season we are in transition and it shows but we look dangerous when kyogo is through the middle.


We have got a lot of tough away fixtures out the way, rangers if i'm right still have livi, hibs, hearts, aberdeen, and celtic away.

All games which celtic have already played

Aye but watching the football made your eyes bleed last season and we had 1 or 2 (won't mention names) who looked like they could not be ersed being there or trying to work for their wages, its night and day tbh, point stats regardless. Honestly watching Celtic just now is well worth the ticket price.

Do you actually want an explanation here?

Not sure how comparable they are

We've got a new manager, 12 new players, a new system, lost our captain, lost our best player

We had won 20 trophies on the bounce at this stage last season with a settled squad

Fun fact 2

Celtic last season had a squad that had won a quad treble. A manager that had previously won titles and cups.

Compared to this season where Celtic's squad won nothing last year, has 12 new players and is are not favourites for the league (maybe not even favourite for second according to our rivals). Yet still the fans see a marked improvement on last season.

Really poor, yet better off. In fact the Celtic team of last season would be joint top just now. Just funny how things can be perceived.

Same with Rangers. The narrative is we aren't firing yet, not clinical in front of goal, not taking chances etc when we have only scored 1 less goal than Celtic who have received a lot of praise for their attacking play.

My memory isn't great either but I thought the car park started after Ross Co papped us out the League cup

You say that like it's my opinion. It's not. Just funny how last year the fans wanted the Manager out and this year they are singing his name despite the results last year being better and for all the comments about being brutal to watch you had scored more goals.

I don't really have an opinion on it.

The difference to last season is we had a lack of difficult away games in that time. Plus the first OF was at home.

We’ve had Ibrox, Pittodrie, Tynecastle, Easter Road and Fir Park all in the first round of fixtures.

We were also pumped out of the cup competition and being ragdolled in Europe.

We’re now in the semi final of the same cup and guaranteed European football after Xmas with an outside chance of qualifying for the EL last 32.

Night and day to last season.

There's been lots of criticism of Rangers this season going forward. Most of it deserved, we haven't been as creative or as prolific than in previous years.

Btw, yesterday annoyed me defensively but when we look like scoring 10 most weeks it’s a bit easier to take.

We will take 10 off a team this season, certain of it.

I think rangers were being criticised prior to the Motherwell game. At which point you’d scored 7 less than us so that’s probably why.

He's just tossed in a grenade here and sat back smirking hasn't he

No not at all, wasn't even meant as a criticism.

I'm always fascinated by things like that. I don't see Celtic much so I'm not in a position to comment on whether you are better or worse in style so will take the word of it of those who are and see you play every week.

I just find these things interesting. It goes back to the moneyball concept of stats vs what your eyes tell you and why football is quite unique.
