  1. When are the players going to show some accountability? Where is their desire to go and kill that game off? It's an absolute disgrace the fact some of them are so casually walking and passing it about in the second half. There was a chance before Hibs scored their goal when we were on the break and Morelos just started walking with the ball at the half-way. He then played a decent ball to Candeias who slows it right down and thinks he has all the time in the world. It's just so frustrating to watch. Teams that win leagues go and kill that game off in the first half. You'll never get an easier game at Easter Road. They were shocking and we gave them a point.

    It always takes us losing a goal to make a change. Same thing happened in the league cup semi-final and a couple of other league games. Why is Middleton not on the bench though? We had 3 central midfielders. Kent had an off night and the service from Candeias was shocking. I understand not wanting to throw another striker on when it's only 1-0 but if you've got Middleton there, at least you can try and get better service from the wide area.
  3. What about all the games prior to the break where we struggled to break teams down and dropped points? Everybody seems to have this recency bias where just because we played well in the old firm game using the 4-1-4-1 (the type of game that suits that formation) we should keep it. Davis and Defoe were brought in for a reason and it was to give us some more creativity and cutting edge in games like this.

    Defoe

    Followed by 2 games in the space of 9 days on plastic pitches!
  5. We are getting acres of space on the left. A bit of composure and quality and they are there for the taking.
  6. Barisic is similar to Wallace in the way that he can be effective. He needs to overlap or have the ball played into space rather than being left one-on-one against the full-back. Tavernier has a bit of skill and can dribble past the defender but Barisic just tries to cross it past the man or knock it past him and run.
  7. Think a change of formation is required for this one. Until we're able to sign more creative players, I think we need to go to 4-2-3-1, 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 against the so-called 'easier' teams to try and get as many attacking players on as possible. If we're going 4-2-3-1 always have four of Kent/Middleton/Grezda/Morelos/Lafferty/Candeias on the pitch.
  8. Because a lot of these players have already played 4 rounds of European qualifiers and 3 matches every other Thursday. Surely that factors in compared to playing one game a week completely rested?

    Katic

    Poor man-management from Gerrard on this one. You could argue that Katic should always be ready to play and today’s performance won’t ever be acceptable but he dropped him for no apparent reason when he was playing extremely well and had reached a good level of consistency only to then not just be rotated for the odd game but miss the next 3 or 4. Hopefully he gets another chance and can reach the level he was playing at previously.
  10. Like most of our players he is more of a hard-working, industrious type rather than a technically gifted, creative player. Maybe need to consider sacrificing a midfield for another forward player in these games and go 4-2-3-1.
  11. Big block of seats just become available in GR5 if anyone is looking for tickets. I think it's the area where season ticket holders were asked to move for Uefa delegates etc.
  12. Fair enough. But I imagine he’s been warned before about his temper and unless he gets it in his head this won’t be the last time this happens.
  13. You can clearly see the red blowing his whistle for Morelos to come over and he keeps his back to him and walks away which I agree is similar to what others do. But then he lifts his hand and gestures to the ref unnecessarily which sends it over the edge. Soft but completely petulant from Morelos in a game where we were comfortable and he’s now cost his team-mates big time now and ahead of Sunday.
  14. Why even put yourself in that position? Why not just walk away? We’re in a comfortable position in a European away tie and you’re booting the ball away? It’s the same shit he always does and every game you’re on edge that he’s going to get sent off. Cost both the club and his team-mates big time here. That’s ridiculous if you think we’re in the same position or there’s going to be the same amount of running for the players with 10 men as there was with 11.
  15. It’s not just one red card though. There’s the Aberdeen game too. He’s a petulant child and is showing no signs of changing. That’s now 2 games he’s cost us in completely needless situations. We were in a great position in this game with the opposition requiring 2 goals and now he’s left us with 10 men for 60 minutes in Russia where we could potentially go out of Europe and now have to play the game on Sunday with the players doing a lot more work than necessary.
