The management and players have a lot to work on in training to try and recapture some of the performances we put in last season. In a lot of games this year the tempo has been flat, the passing predictable and little creativity.

Where has the pressing we seen last year went? The energy, the pace, the relentless running?

We have done amazing to win the League Cup, be top of the league, still in Europe and QF of Scottish while playing poorly with the exception of 4 or 5 games.

Injuries have been an obvious strain but we still have a far stronger squad (with current injuries) than any team in Scotland.

I think that the amount of games we've played this season has affected the way we press teams. Liverpool play a high pressing game yet they have struggled to do it consistently.
I'm hoping that now we are getting to the business end of the season the players will get a new lease of life and we will return to the form of last season.
I also think that if we can get Rogic and Roberts fit and on form, that will be a massive boost for us.

Everyone talks about how much we miss Paddy and Rogic and of course we do but for me we miss Armstrong the most. His driving runs are missing and making our midfield static. I think Ntcham is great but he is good on the ball and will rarely run beyond the strikers. Anyone agree?

Defo Martyc. Just saying to my son the other day, that we've missed Armstrong. I feel he gives us more in terms of his runs getting in behind defences. Pretty good goal ratio also, and we've missed that. Hopefully he and the rest of the injured bhoys aren't too far away from coming back.

Although Armstrong had not been as good as he was last season, he was just hitting form, before his injury and we do not have a midfield player like him at present and - along with Rogic and Roberts - he will make a big difference when he returns.
Any news on his fitness?

i agree, rogic and roberts in form will improve the team and style of play drastically. i've just been disappointed that, given the amount of quality we possess, that we have been so poor without them.

i said on here a couple weeks ago after the hearts game i thought armstrong would struggle to get back in the team as our midfield trio was excellent that night. i've changed my mind on that. ntcham is quality but still quite inconsistent. you's are right in saying armstrong's runs on and off the ball create space and good chances.

we have so much attacking talent but weak in defence. we need to find a formation that plays to our strengths. 3-4-1-2 or 3-4-3 would be my pick. i'd like to see our 3 attackers rotate during games, it would make it harder for the opposing defence.
