That simple and until the day we’re not they will just keep beating us.  Embarrassing performance 

Can’t underestimate this. Certain players, who played today, had to be treated for severe dehydration after the game in Russia. They were running on empty & today proved to be a step too far sadly

It was just a game too far at this moment but if cunts can’t see the growth in our team then yer kidding yourself on  today beaten by the better team after a 9 man performance in Russia’s arsehol

This, but how else can we set up? we're still predictable, just as we have been since Warburton was in charge. Tactically, i have no clue what we were doing today and we are not equipped to grind out a win with Morelos and Lafferty. 

 

Barisic was a big let down today, defense were in disarray and we barely got a ball up to the final third. The only saving grace is that it was the first OF for 6 players, hopefully in the next one they know the pace of the game and step up. 

 

 

Well we were way too deep for a start and almost looked the game plan was not to have the ball and forget about scoring. The whole tactical setup today was wrong. We needed to press from the front and take the game to them. Not let them dominate possession. We were lucky to not have conceded way before we did.

This league is going to the wire this season. I genuinely believe that. 

Today was a bad performance no question. But some of our debutants have never in their life experienced what they did today. 

We are on an upward trajectory and the learning curve is part of the process. 

Their fans stayed in the ground and celebrated like it was the last old form of the season not the first. They know the gaps closing and we will get better this season, they will not. We are 17 new players. They are 2. They are at their best we are only gonna get better

Agreed about sitting deep but if we went forward to early i imagine we'd have suffered more than a 1 - 0 defeat. We lost the ball countless times at stupid fucking areas in the park, our own players couldn't deal with being pressed. But they can't deal with being pressured either, it's about finding a balance and we were nowhere near doing that until the 70th for ten minutes or so.

Based on what I’ve witnessed in other games. We were too soft today, the gaffer isn’t daft.

I expect a change at Ibrox.

People keep saying things along those lines but what was our setup today, if it wasn't "daft"?

He sat in his bench like a little boy lost, watching more inspid shit.

I know what you mean mate but there’s no way we’d have been under anywhere near as pressure as we were I’d we’d have really gone after them. We have to remember they’re not great. I think we’ve got enough quality now even to go there and actually play them at football rather than setting up to nick a point. For what it’s worth - I don’t think the players would have been happy with that approach today either but that’s just my opinion.

with that bench today, i couldn't see many options and with a few tough games in between now and the next OF , including Europe we may be laden with injuries before then.  Like i say mate, i''m hopeful but there's nothing i've seen so far to say that we should be confident of owning them at home.

Just an off day, we will beat them at Ibrox.

We keep saying that and it keeps not happening - I really hope SG's a fast learner. I genuinely admire your optimism, but it feels like we're stuck in Groundhog Day whenever we play them now.

Most that team hadn't experienced that before . Think the idea was to give little away that first half to let them find their feet and be more adventurous the second . I really don't think there was much between the teams that second half . It's work in progress and there's certainly been a marked improvement from the last few managers visits there .

Agree with that regarding the bench, that Albanian boy will give us a wee but extra but tbh I wanted another out and out striker.
