My thoughts on Zenit (or really anyone we got) .

right i've been hammering on about bettering the squad. but with a tricky trip away in feb I'm now thinking what we need is consistency rather than taking a risk on an unknown player.

Stats guys, how many times have we play this season with our recognised strongest back 5?
Gordon, Lustig, Simo, Boyata, Tierney.

Imagine they are at their best, would we want rid of any of them?

Remember Boyatas crucial goals last season, 2 or 3 in a row. Lustigs reverse pass, KT wanted by the world. "How did he do that" Gordon save.

Midfield - Forest and Brown on current form, Rogic/ Armstrong/ McGregor/ Sinclair at their best, Ntcham, Eboui fulfilling their potential.

Griff and Demebele on top of their game up front.

How many games have we played so far this season?

Get to the break, rest key players, PETITION the league (we fund) to give us the weekend off before and after the Zenit games (as Astana did) .

We can take these clowns with what we have - I know they are backed by Oligars and we are backed by Oli Murs but these guys a doable.

Digi - my thoughts are as follows despite the unbeaten run continuing

Gordon - not good enough, decent keeper but we need someone far better. Our defence have no confidence in him at times

Lustig - love the guy but CB or nothing as he has been tore a new one many times this year especially when players have pace. New RB is needed, can’t see Ralston emulating KT

Simo - keep him

Boyata - Just like Efe, too big a club for him. Must be replaced as he isn’t going to learn to be a quality CB

KT - apart from a rest that’s well earned and needed he’s been great but needs better beside and behind him.

Midfield / Strikers for me are good enough. Think we need Kouassi to either show up or go, Browns replacement surely if he can show us why we paid the money for him.

Lustig isn't quick enough to play CB for Celtic with the way we push our fullbacks forward.

Realistically January isn’t a good time to sign players, and we probably need rid of a few too.

Digibanger are you back on the wine? We couldn't beat Anderlect at Celtic park. Got humped by the others. Zenit are top drawer. Anyone is doeable as you put it but not the way BR sets his side up in Europe. wouldn't matter who we got we ain't going through. Will take the flak coming from this post but be prepsred to withdraw it once we get knocked out.

A lot of mention on Boyata being a nightmare on the site lately. In my opinion he's a better defender than simunovic. At times simunovic is miles out of position, although Boyata makes errors he at least gets in the correct areas. Worryingly a goal is quite often scored (especially in Europe) and Simunovic is nowhere to be seen!

As with most things these days i am in two minds so can see both sides of the arguement. I think even if we buy in jan we won't risk new players in this important tie unless theybreally really hit the ground running or we have more injuries. will simo be risked on the plastic pitch, for example.

No matter who we sign or how many we sign, I would be surprised if more than one or two play against Zenit in the last 32 Europa League match .
Rodgers needs his players all used to his system.
