Ironically it looks like we've gone from a frightening attacking unit with a shaky defence to fairly solid defensively and lacking ideas in attack. I don't think it will take more than a few tweaks to reap the best of both. I don't see Rogic and McGregor fitting into the same team and on current form, I'd have Tam on the bench at the weekend and have a natural wide player on the left which should help stretch the opposition a bit more rather than congest the central areas.

100% correct Kev, Sinclair needs to be given a run back in the starting XI at the expense of Rogic, can't understand why he's not been given a run especially when he's been showing glimpses of his early form when he's been coming on.

We have no penetration through the middle as it's always side to side and down both flanks. With all our midfielders surely 1 of them can step up and be the playmaker. As you say the defence looks far better with Benkovic in it. I used to worry every time a cross ball came into our box so he will steady my nerves! Gordon still gives me the fear tho with cross balls. We just haven't clicked together as of yet but hopefully that changes on Sunday. Not a great performance all round but 3 points is the start we needed.

Try the magic blue pill pud. Haha.

Time to give Sinclair and griff a run and by that a mean a few games we look a bit flat.

I mentioned on the live-chat last night that, at least we were keeping clean sheets (5 in-a-row) and that was something we couldn't do since the season started. However, I agree with the consensus above, about Rogic, McGregor, Sinclair and Griffiths.
It's obvious that we need much more direct aggression and higher tempo as the sideways predictability was easy to defend against.
Young Johnston also made a real impact (and should have had a goal) when he came on and I think Forrest - like Rogic is going through the motions these days and needs a wee rest and reminder.
We need to get back to playing form players in their proper positions and using more pace and directness to translate possession into the goals we know the players are capable of.

I would play Malumbu in beside brown and push Ntcham on one to support the striker. The midfield would have a far better balance.

21 Sep 2018 18:53:49
Sack the Board, you may be right in playing Malumba, however are you not taking a chance playing a player you hardly know and who hasn't played in any team for the past 4/ 5 months . Mulumba may very well be a good player for us but it is maybe too early for him, BR will see him every day and is best suited to decide when to play him.

Personally I have high hopes for Lewis Morgan and hope he can come in to give us that extra spark by taking on a man and create some spaces.

21 Sep 2018 21:51:03
Kevbhoy, I hope as the season proceeds I hope that between Lewis Morgan M Johnstone, Christie and Aranzi that we will have a couple of very good players and two more capable of coming on and playing their part.

22 Sep 2018 10:08:56
Excited about Morgan too. Celtic thing I guess.

Don't sell McCourt.

As soon as I put the word "penetration" I knew a dirty mind would jump straight in. Well done Ed and the gifs a belter! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€.

{Ed007's Note - The "down both flanks" was just the cherry on the cake, Pud πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘
