First of all, I think it was pretty poor for Miller to be put in a different position on his debut as he definitely struggled at times. The team performance wasn't great but the confidence that we're still going to win when we play poorly is the big change from last season. Also have to say fair play to Partick Thistle, that's probably the toughest game anybody's given us at home this season and it's surprising they find themselves bottom of the league. Couldn't really see from my seat in the Jock Stein but they had a couple of second half penalty claims as well which could have knicked them a draw. We're ticking over, still winning and I expect a uch improved performance on the 31st.

Going off some of the things BR has been saying it sounds like KM will be playing LWB again?

He obviously quite likes the thought of him at LB but on the basis of last night he was completely out of his comfort zone. Couple that with the fact KT is on his way back makes it an odd one. I just think if you're giving him his debut it's fairer to play him in his natural position to give him some confidence, a debut to forget.

{Ed007's Note - Rodgers sees Miller as a LB/LWB so he is playing him there. This is exactly like some of the strange things he used to do at Liverpool with young players - it was called being 'Brendaned'.
If Miller doesn't see himself as a LB then he won't be near the squad and will need to move on for his own good.}

It's a strange one especially as LB is the last position we need to improve. BR has played Armstrong in his natural position and he's reaped the benefits. If a player isn't doing great during games but shows signs they'd be suited to a different position then fine, work on that, but it seems like a bit of a vanity project to me to put him straight into an unfamiliar position.

{Ed007's Note - The lad's still only 18/19 so he should be able to adapt - if he wants to of course - and I hope it works out for the player's sake but it'll be the first of some really strange decisions that will happen as time goes on under Rodgers imo.}

If the manager decides the player is going to play in a certain position then of course the player needs to try his best to do that but this is a player who was apparently the best in the world for his age a few years ago and not as a left back.

{Ed007's Note - I had forgotten about that.}

I'll wait and see how it goes but I think if Ronny had tried something similar there would be a lot more murmuring. Anyway, another 3 points in the bag is the most important thing! HH.

{Ed007's Note - It would have been a meltdown if RD had done that (rofl)

Calvin Miller from what I heard has been playing/ training at that position for a wee while now.

BR has seen something in him to change his position and has moved him accordingly.
Only 2 weeks ago my boy who is only 16 told me that Miller was being moved there and lo and behold he turns up in the 1st team in that position when my understanding was he was a more forward thinking player.

Dalglish was a goalie when young so u never know, and if u have to adapt to make it then u adapt, if u good enough u will make it.
Sorry ed but I can't agree with the young players don't make it because of the crowd.

Celtic supporters have always been kind to the youngsters and I can't think of any young player who has had a hard time at Celtic park, or didn't make it because of it.
If they good enough their old enough.
