I don’t know what’s happened to us so far this season and I don’t know how we fix it. You’d have thought beating celtic would give us a boost but apparently not 

We seem to be devoid of ideas and creativity. Whether or not it's a case of some players now thinking they've made it and can coast to the title, or tactically we've been found out and are too slow to adapt mid game.

it's possibly a mixture of the two. At the moment we are winning domestic games but not comfortably in any way. If performances don't improve quickly then I wouldn't be surprised to see us drop more points.

Just in and that was fucking shite, we need to be able to pass the ball with a bit of urgency, not even close to what's needed in a game like that, there's a few in that team not giving a fuck anymore, it's plain to see.

like who?

Our midfield is shite in terms of creativity. Most of that game tonight we had Davis blowing out his arse because he’s too old to play constantly now, and Lundstram either doing fuck all or playing the simple pass.

Once you couple that with the fact Aribo and Kent are hot and cold in terms of form then you’ve literally nothing beyond the defence other than Alfie, who can’t supply himself

Yeah, I could get past getting beat tonight pretty easily if the performances so far this season had been good, but they haven’t been. 

Going into a game against Lyon you would take a draw, but the thing that irks me is I don’t think they were particularly impressive tonight and had we not been complete shite we could have taken something from that. 

think you are right mate. They kicked the ball out of play under no challenge a few times first half.  Aye they have quality but if we had been at our best the game was there for us.  

We really are lacking from energy and aggression in midfield and quality in last third.

Frustratingly flat at times.

Roofe being dropped was criminal, especially for Lundstram.

Roofe not being on at half time was criminal.

I pray someone bids for Kent in January, those two goals :megaanguish: 

Fucking long way home after a display like that. Expected Roofe to be on from the start, Alfie was ploughing a lone furrow and needed support.   Kent is a pale shadow of his former self, hopefully he rediscovers his form.

Indeed but sort of adds to the disappointment of tonight.   Start of the second half at Anfield, ground was rocking and and equalizer and a winner followed. Start of the second half at Ibrox, the crowd was quiet and fuck all followed.  Crap as we were on the pitch think if the crowd was up for it we would have come back after half time and got at least a point.  Shit night all round.

Aye, atmosphere was pish for the most part. There was a couple of spells it got decent though.

So far from some lunatics on this thread.... Morelos is a has-been, Kent is useless and we are well rid,   Lyon only won because they dive and time waste and Lundstram had a good match.:headwall:

Fucking menatalists!

 

Lyon had a couple of chances in the first half and scored a belter.  Second half they did what they needed to do to win the game.  Overall we did enough to get a point but our finishing was poor and we lacked intensity on and off the pitch, compared with typical Ibrox European nights.   But maybe they were just better than us.

Fuck tonight, this is my biggest worry.

We’ve literally not kicked a baw since last game of last season. If beating that mob doesn’t kick start your season I don’t know what will.

A worry for me is that our player acquisition isn't the great success we are told.  This season Sakala, Lundstram, Ofoborh, Bacuna.    Two have been crap and two haven't kicked a ball yet.

Mind the tarriers last season?

Started shite but gave it the "it's what champions do" When scraping out wins? 

Champions scrape wins when they've played brilliantly before then and start going through a rough patch. They don't begin the season shite.

We are champions and we are top of the league. The reaction is OTT

There are many problems KK...

- if we continue to play Steve Davis 50+ games this season, it will cost us. He is not last season.

- Lose either Goldson or Balogun to injury and we have a problem.

- Playing Kent as a #10 needs to end.

- Patterson has played once this season. He is too talented to sit that long.

- no chemistry in the front three.

-, Lundstram stifles the flow in that team.

There is more but it's late, others can add.

Your ovrerthinking everything. This team should have our trust mate.

See if they didn't have the bottle heart and whatever else to fight for this title we don't beat the scum a fortnight ago missing our manager skipper and a few others ffs. 

We wouldve  just thrown in the towel v St johnstone.

Trust the team they've earned that as a minimum

imo, we haven't played well since last February. 

edit- I just realized that coincides with the last time RJ played. No coincidence there.
