There is a lot of talk about our dodgy defence just now and while I agree that individuals are making too many silly mistakes, I don't see this as the only factor.

I know some may not like this or agree with me but I think Rodgers needs to shoulder some of the responsibility for the way he sets the team up and the style he wants to play. By playing out from the back; especially using players with limited technical ability, you are likely to make mistakes. Not only that if you misplace a pass whilst the team are bombing forward, you leave yourself exposed at the back.

If you cast your minds back to when Liverpool nearly won the league under Rodgers, Liverpool players were making the same mistakes and shipping a ridiculously high amount of goals for the exact same reasons.

Personally, I don't see it as a big problem in the SPL because on the most part teams fail to capitalise on account of their inferior players. However, in Europe I do think it is an issue Rodgers should address because you will more often than not get punished for the errors. In my opinion, this is why we have taken a few humpings in the CL.

We play to far apart. Passes between the back four plus two dropping midfielders can be up to twenty yards or more, add a couple of touches and teams are set up again. Our game needs to be condensed more to open teams up and use our pace.

there is a brilliant clip going around of Villareal passing out of a tight press at the halfway line, brilliant one touch and into the opposing box. Anderlecht was a warning for me.

Jhedi that’s one thing I’ve always wondered

Many clubs with smaller budgets play fantastic football even in Europe against the better teams.

Celtic though rarely do. How can we not have a Moravcik type player? Is our scouting network doing their jobs right? I know it’s early but for me Musonda looks like a McGeady - nice feet with limited end product.

Calvin Miller was meant to be our next promising attacking player? How can this lad not get his chance to shine?

I don’t think many teams in Europe (especially the champions league) have a smaller budget than us to be honest.
