I love Griff but I just think Dembele is better suited for CL games - purely for his height and hold up play. Not a good night bhoys but hopefully forgotten by beating Hibs.

Griff had nothing to work with. Even a rubbish outfit like Scotland manages to get him into the game. I do agree that Moussa is better suited for the lone striker role in a way, but Griff has become a world class forward and we'll be lucky to hold on to him.

Ntcham is the weak link in midfield for me. He isn't a defensive mid and he isn't an attacking mid imo. Ok for the SPFL but wants to much time on the ball and his decision making poor, gives ball away. Wee McGregor would be better in there more legs and forward thinking also.

I agree about Ntcham, I think he is being thrown into these big games, and I don't think he is ready for them, he gave the ball away a lot against psg and the same tonight, when someone is regularly giving the ball away, it puts everyone under pressure, I would find some way of keeping Griffith's in the team even when Dembelle us playing.

Ntcham is a complete and utter waste of money. the vast majority of passes are utter Pish and his shooting is woeful.

Two signings from Rogers that are piss poor and having to play Gamboa in a makeshift defence, when even the full stength one is not up to CL life.

I'm hoping thus gas the same effect as the semi final defeat to the dark side.

The board need to sanction investment and Rigets needs to sell Ntcham and Hayes and buy a few players.

Rogers gloss is fading with me for his insistence on playing his £4.5m buy and letting Gamboa back on the pitch at half time.

We have regressed as a team since last year. Our balance and power have gone with Sideyways Sid Ntcham playing the safe baw or just giving it away.

Utter waste of a jersey.

Gamboa is useless how many times does he allow the boy to cross, at that level out his depth. we need to get a couple of decent defenders in for europa cup presuming we qualify.

I'd like to defend Ntcham as I think there's a real player in there . . . but you are all of course right. He's seemed nervous and hasn't been getting the basic stuff correct. Maybe he needs more time to shoulder the obvious responsibility. Saying that, Broony and Armstrong were no better last night: many of the players were obviously struggling to compete with a better class of player on a one-on-one matchup.

Cav agree think ntcham needs time but gamboa had 90 mins to at least put a tackle in and failed miserably he won't do for that level domestic level at best.

I agree Magicpole.
I think Ntcham is close to being as bad as N'Guemo - and I thought he was one of the worst players to ever wear a Celtic shirt. Ntcham offers nothing at all - he hardly wins the ball and his distribution is appalling: it's like playing other a man down. McGregor is a far better option and so is Rogic.

Gamboa was an absolute liability as well - his pace is meant to be his main attribute but you would never have known he had any at all based on last nights effort.
I think Rodgers has made mistakes in both the game against PSG and again last night: against PSG Tierney was being pulled inside to almost play as an extra centre back and they had acres of space and time down their right hand side - last night Gamboa was horribly exposed time and time again.

On both occasions Rodgers did nothing to change formation or personnel to try and cut those threats out and we were picked off at will: allowing that to continue without trying to do something about it is. It good enough.

Giving him more time to slow us down is a mistake. He is awful and should be punted. No doubt he will be played on Saturday and will be gash again, ruining our shape and movement. Giving Hibs hope until he is hooked at 60 minutes.

He's a midfield Regi Blinker. Totally rubbish and in need of getting rid.

The whole balls up signing wise in the summer, has left us worse, not better than we were last year. If you don't think so watch every game we have played so far.

We have invested/ wasted £5.8m of the hard earned CL money. We can't afford to waste anymore.

I watched Rogers post match interview.

I don't know what fecking game he was watching, it must have been on HD or something because it wasn't the game I endured.

All the defensive issues we have are down to Rogers. He talks about being a CL team, then buys two utter duds and fails to bring in defenders.

If he was getting a report card from me it would simply say, Pish. Last year is gone. Sort out your defence and don't even try to defend the signing of Hayes.

I hope the board took note of the need to burst a £20 note come January.

Breath should not be held.

Armstrong should be playing alongside brown in midfield and rogic in number 10 role. Ntcham so far iff the mark ag this level. Should be playing with tried and tursted players.

19 Oct 2017 14:30:13
pull yer heads in, what's wrong with you pair
the shite your spouting about ntcham is the same crap
i heard about biton and big rogic and they both turned it around the boy ntcham has got class written all over him
feck sake boys young only been here a few months and il bet he turns out to be another top signing come the end off
season, and by the way managers can make mistakes they're not immune to it but rodgers knows his stuff get off there backs.

Again, well said Magicpole.
What I don't understand is the refusal to try and change things. The signings have also been very poor - if reports were tonne believed, Ntcham was far from being our first choice target. It looks to me a bit like a desperation signing. But why? Midfield is our strongest area and we have loads of options. Now we are stuck with a £4.5 million dud who will probably get picked purely to justify the price tag. Brown, Armstrong, Rogic, McGregor, Henderson and even Bitton are better than Ntcham - and that just makes his signing all the more galling.
