Last night was not the greatest euro game I have been at, but give team some credit, they kept at it, won the game and kept clean sheet. I also think Rosenburg were much better than last time we played them so well done Bhoys.
Now I am going to put this out there, I think Dembele leaving has unsettled young Odsonne and Nitcham looks like Moussa has put it in his head about "riches elsewhere" I would drop Nitcham and see what Mulumbu can do in his position starting on Sunday.
Also on Sunday at right back I would play Gamboa or Hendry and give Lustig a rest as I feel he is not able to play 3 games in a week.
Looking on the plus side, I thought Benkovic looks a player, Boyata (when he concentrates) is a must pick just now, and don't forget we have Biton, Morgan, Christie and Arzani all ready to play a part soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

He didn't look unsettled when he ran the game against The Rangers and scored winner.
He made a stupid mistake at weekend and then had an up and down game last night.
But he wasn't any worse than the rest of the mid field except Brown.

{Ed007's Note - I think Ntcham will be this season's Lustig/Boyata, any mistakes are going to be drastically magnified except this time they'll mean he's unhappy and wants to leave.
For me Ntcham was second only to KT last night for MOTM but we're seemingly now at a point that a few poor touches in a game means a player is missing his friend, wanting more money and wanting to leave - so what's Rogic and Forrest's excuses been for the last 6 or so years?
Have you ever noticed how poor Brown's control can be at times yet nobody sees any hidden meaning it that?
And that's now 5 clean sheets on the bounce - with Boyata being the only ever present in those 5 matches - and yet I've yet to read anyone praising the defence after months of crucifying them.}

Credit should be given where its due. Boyata has been top class since all the transfer fiasco and Benkovic looks the buisness. His range of passing and read on the game seems spot on.

Boyata has been stand out in everyone of they 5 clean sheets but that magnifies what he did for me a bit ed. I really think we'd have qualified if he had played.
I do think he's now served his penance though.

Our worse player all season is rogic and he seems untouchable with some fans.

{Ed007's Note - Maybe Rogic has went to the World Cup and it's been put in his head about the riches he can earn elsewhere and he's regretting signing a new deal, maybe we signed Arzani so that Rogic had a football friend at the Club to keep him happy?
That's about as believable as the Ntcham/Dembele stuff is it not?
If Ntcham needed Dembele to tell him about the riches he can get elsewhere he's either the thickest footballer on the planet and illiterate or has THE worst advisers on the planet.}

Well put ed, I have been saying for months on here problem wasn't the defense.
Ive also said Eddi is a Samaras type in that he needs grass to run into, games like last night just don't suit his game.
Get him back playing in the left with LG up top.
There are many ways to score goals, I will highlight the obv ones.
Set Pieces- we are woeful at this unless in striking distance and LG must b on the pitch.
Corners- woeful.
Going down left wing- our biggest threat (KT) .
Going down right wing - rarely score. No overlapping RB
Long Ball- non existent really
Counter attack - not bad at this but don't utilise often enough.
General play/ good moves- too ponderous as we all know and now making it hard to break teams down.
Third man running- IE Armstrong.
Now I know I not covered all areas of scoring BUT if we are to score more often then these are the areas we need to improve on.

Out of the eight we are only good at one of them, and not bad at 1 other, now its not rocket science to figure out where we are going wrong.
The more options u have at scoring the more u will score.

Ed I’m with you on the picking on players. Even the likes of Sutton is manipulating the situation. He critiqued Ntcham but not brown or even Tierney when he had a bad touch. I feel in the final third we’re missing a playmaker someone who’s going to stick in a pass to our strikers. I know our strikers should do more but I feel Rogic and McGregor are falling into the commons category of more attacking midfielder/ shadow striker role and trying to get shots off than looking at what’s in front of them.

Football friend ed? Surely u could've found one of your wee clips fae the inbetweeners with Jay jumping on his football friends car. Absolute quality.

{Ed007's Note - I couldn't find one lol.}

Poor excuse.
