Bacuna seems to be receiving a fair bit of criticism. I'm not sure why, I thought some of his passes were excellent. However, I'm not sure what his best position is.

We need to get the Buff going.

And Tav done himself no favours in the continuing debate at right back.

Noticed Tav in the first half when there was a fuck up for a throw in. He was so busy looking at the ground shaking his head he missed the fact that play had restarted. His heads up his arse.

Just seen their goal from behind the goal - fuck me it’s beyond belief they are scoring from there. It’s fucking terrible 

It was bad but the ultimate issue was the game not being killed well before then especially when it’s not the first time this season we’ve left ourselves in that position

The old scatter gun approach.

Had 3 really good passes that others in the team (Hagi aside) probably don’t see. Can see exactly what he’ll bring when he’s up to speed if you’ve got a half a brain.

He produced a few good balls in behind their defence but we completely lost control if the game when he did come on.

Think we need to go 4-4-2, or some formation with 2 up front, at home in games outwith the scum. So many chances and such shit finishing. 

It makes sense.

I know at the high level of champions League and the top European countries it's an outdated tactic but the Scottish games aren't played like those games are, especially when it's an old firm team Vs any of the other teams.

Most of our league games are spent with us on the attack for most of the game so it makes sense to have 2 strikers. The other teams are always going to be looking for a break away anyway.

Regardless of Hearts scoring in the last minute, even if they hadn't, the burning question of us scoring goals is still there. It would still need addressed even had we won. Its been an issue all season thus far.  

This about sums it up, killer instinct is not there, no aggression.

Tav guilty of that in most games. Body language unbelievably bad at times, head down & shoulders slouched. Poor captaincy.

Just watched the game back, played really well as I thought on Saturday. So much chances that we should've taken. Before Hearts had forced a save out of McGregor we could've been well out of sight. Some of the football was really good, but we just seemed to settle at around seventy minutes, Morelos' performance doesn't get much better second time around and neither does Tavernier's. Think going forward It should be Patterson. For me the only thing Tavernier has over him is experience and due to the fact he's older than him he always will. Think we need to realise that last seasons Tavernier isn't his level and if anything it was a purple patch. Said on Saturday and I'll say it again I really don't want to see us line up without Kemar Roofe either, brings so much.

Roofe has started a few games this season as well and looked inept. We need to get ALL of our strikers on form because it's beyond a joke.

Tav definitely needs dropped for Patterson, his body language is terrible as is his play.

It is. Happens as soon as things are going against the side. 
Said it loads of times - we need a right nasty, vocal  fucker in the team. 
Really lacks any kind of leadership this team

I’d have Roofe on the team sheet before Morelos

Think Lundstram is growing into that to be honest. Scenes when he wears the armband after being written off completely.

To be fair to Tav, Gerrard has made it clear he is playing with something not quite right. I agree Patterson, should start matches for the next 3-4 wks, have Tav as a sub, to bring on if we are struggling.

Saying that for years. We have not had someone like your avatar, or a Brown or Fergie, for years. That is part of the reason we wanted someone who could smash Brown, it wasnt just smashing a player we hated, it was getting someone who had that ability to bully in midfield.
