Said it a few times before, improvements up front, improvements in midfield but again the defence is our weak spot.

Going to ask the question again, is John Kennedy making the defence better or making the same mistakes over and over again.

Think we need to change something to try and improve our defence, should Yours take over. don't know the answer just asking the question.
Well done for the result on the day.

{Ed007's Note - Why single out John Kennedy?}

Think commper will be straight in when fit, the experience we need,

It’s not Kennedy’s fault. He hasn’t got good enough defenders to work with.

{Ed007's Note - It's not Kennedy's fault because he isn't in charge of coaching the defence. Kennedy is a first team coach, people think because he played in defence that he's responsible for specifically coaching the defenders, he's not.}

We were disorganised at the back under RD and JK was in charge of defence. Brendan brought his own team in but kept JK, every part of the team has improved under Brendan's team but defence not moved forward and JK is the common denominator.
Just asking the question Ed, not criticising the team, understand about injuries which effects consistency but the defence hasn't improved as much of the rest of team.

{Ed007's Note - JK wasn't in charge of the defence when Ronny Deila was here, he was a first team coach under him which means he coaches the entire first team squad and follows drills set out by Brendan Rodgers, Chris Davies and Glen Driscoll.}

The team has no confidence, I honestly don’t think anyone can argue that the front, middle or back areas of the team are performing.

10 Feb 2018 14:34:55
I thought he was the defensive coach. He’s probably glad that’s not the case, but even if he was, you can’t make a silk purse from a sows ear.

{Ed007's Note - Kolo Toure's the first team squad's Technical Assistant, he played as a defender too.}

Celtic don't strenghten in transfer windows. that's the problem.
That was panic stations against Patrick.
We are slowly letting clubs catch us up when we should be miles ahead.
PL is talking about a good balance sheet but he could be the man to lead us to 10 but am not so sure.
We are a shadow of the team from last year and 2 windows have been missed to strengthen.
It's criminal.

When BR arrived the players were praising the coaching methods and the form and fitness (Lustig and Forrest rarely lasted 90 mins) of most players was transformed and we had an historic domestic season.
We were scoring for fun, playing great football and defending when we had to - in achieving the treble.
I would suggest that there is a complacency and laziness this season, when they go onto the pitch and expect to win almost effortlessly?
The poor performance at Rugby Park, seemed to be out of the system after ten minutes today, but again we got careless and sloppy.
The introduction of Musonda came with great expectation, but the bhoy needs more time to settle and 'aclimmatize' to Scottish referees lol.

Ed, I stand corrected on JK.

But we obviously are in need of improvements in defence so whoever responsible we need an upgrade.

It's all good just want us better at the back.

How often I hear Kennedy blamed when the defence plays poorly is mental.
Kennedy is just a coach.
He doesn't pick the defenders
He doesn't pick the tactics
He doesn't pick how the players have to be coached.
He follows orders just like the rest of the staff.
