Like Hearts they got physical on Aribo and Kent and they shat it and hid.

Mcinnes plays us like a fiddle nearly every time.

 

Question is why don’t they do that to the tarriers? Their main players aren’t physical and they manage to play their game.

Gerrard focuses too much on the physical of the game. Talks about winning battles when we just need to do our own thing. 
 

Not that I think that would of made much difference we were fuckin miles off it.

This squad is good enough to compete for the title but I can’t help but feel we’re being held back.  This current formation is too defensive.  We’re relying on Kent and Aribo to create everything.  Aribo looks completely lost so it’s all down to Kent.

There needs to be a change of formation.  Even if it’s taking out one of the central midfielders and playing Hagi as a 10 behind the striker.  

Teams in the SPFL are shite for the most part.  Even teams like Aberdeen just sit in for 90mins.  We need to set up to attack.

Agreed switch it to a 4-2-3-1. 

We've all wanted a no 10 player. Hagi has predominantly played that position so let's use him in it. 

We don't need 3 defensive minded midfielders that can't pick a pass.

Mcinnes knows Tav and Barasic are our big threats so he virtually man marks them with his wide forwards and is happy for the ball to get played inside to where all the bodies are.

Not sure if does that against Tarriers but they have central midfielders who can score from outside the box.

More has got to come from our midfield 3 and 2 tens no disagreement there.

Just looked the now.

 

I’m pretty sure Aribo got put in that Right number ten position for first time against Livingston.

he’s played 14 games there and scored 2 goals.

That’s nowhere near good enough in a team that relies on their 10’s for assists and goals.

Aribo flatters to decieve and gets us fucking nowhere and full of shitebaggery to boot.

Personnel need changed and we can start with him.

Handful of points difference doesn't make it over at all, there's  a Long way to go.

My worry is our form and that we might potentially drop points in more than 1 game the next few weeks.

The league is over, dropping 5 points in 4 days won’t win us fuck all.We know it the Tarriers know it and so does every other fucker.There is no way that they will drop as many points as us.

Suppose 4 is still in our own hands , drop again tho and it’s definitely over 

4 points turnaround is possible but we'll need a run of wins and form we are yet to see with a Gerrard team. 

Still too many silly points being thrown away. 5 to hearts and now we've dropped 4 to the sheep.

League is done in my view but I don't think we have a shit team etc.

This is solely at the management door this year they've ran the legs off this team again.

I think it's harsh to say we ain't showed form mate we were fantastic before the break. I believe we'll hit those levels again but its about the damage we do to ourselves whilst in this dip.

Every cunt was going on about how fitter and sharper we looked compared to the scum at the paedodome.

Bottle merchant bastards to a man. 

It's the same shite 3/4 of the time we play the same fucking teams.  Gerrard's tactics and players struggle far too often against the same fucking shite like the sheep today.  The majority of the time we end up with the same old story. Both seasons we've seen an actually unbelievable fuck up in January and from there it goes tits up big time. 

He even said just a week ago himself questions can rightly be asked about him and his players mentality. I don't think there are any questions anymore. 

We're currently watching that mob stroll to a fourth fucking treble. I have no confidence Gerrard can see us win the Scottish Cup. We'll have to avoid certain teams to stand a chance, which isn't happening.

It's so disappointing. We've made a right arse of the majority of our signings as well. So much deadwood in the squad, leaving us with piss weak benches half the time. No game changers to be fucking seen.

Look at the game v them and 4 games since we returned. The difference is staggering. We won btw and are u telling me we know have low/no confidence how does that work?

Davis had his worse game in a Rangers Jersey today across 2 spells looked every bit his age and it because they've been taken to Dubai and ran for fuckin miles daily.

Once you go 7pts behind it’s very rarely pulled back.  One more bad result and it’ll be all over.  celtic don’t look like dropping points.

It’s not but he’s not a 10.

He was class at easter road onwards to parkheed.

Problem we’ve got is we play a sitter (normally Davis) with two outside of him, Because our full backs are so important to the system the midfielders have to cover when they go forward. Thats not Aribo game at all, only place he’s got in our formation is where he’s been playing. 
 

Questions got to be asked why we signed hastie, JJ, Ojo, Barker who are out and out wingers when we play two 10s. Likes of Aribo was signed when he’s going to be hamstrung by playing centre mid in our formation.

Its more the run of wins that's my concern mate.  Our form before the break was excellent but that run still had a dropped points to the sheep. 

Even this season our best run is 5 wins straight in the league.

If a league title is going to be one against the taigs we need a much bigger run of wins.

Agree mate Wednesday huge. At this point its everything crossed and just sheer hope we find something resembling Rangers.

Aribo was excellent at Hibs but horrendous against Killie in a carbon copy of todays game.

He shouldn’t be playing in that right sided number 10 role he should be playing as a midfielder.

If he doesn’t fit into our way of playing as a midfielder then add him to the questionable signings.

 

FWIW, i think Aribo will come good as a midfielder next season.

After Hamilton the Bheasts have away ties to Motherwell and Aberdeen with a home game with Hearts in between.  Outwith ourselves thats about as realistic chance as there is of them dropping points, which means Gerrard needs to come up with a plan pronto to ensure we taken maximum points.
