What's your take on Rogic?
Hardly kicked a ball all season, then pulls the strings yesterday.

Special mention for Forrest, sublime running - well played.

{Ed007's Note - Sorry it took so long to answer you mate, I had picked up a virus/malware bug on something and couldn't get on to edit the sites yesterday. I thought both Rogic and Forrest were immense on Sunday but we should be getting off them week in and week out. Rogic especially has been poor so far this season (probably this year in fact) and him playing while being off form has been a massive factor in the lack of goals, creativity and flair in the final third, if he can keep playing the way we seen on Sunday we should see a massive improvement in that department.
Forrest is another player that needs to find consistency in his game, you certainly can't fault his effort on the field but he needs to be consistently more productive. His first goal on Sunday was only his 6th league goal of 2018, that's a pretty poor return for a winger at Celtic when you consider the amount of possession we get and how we dominate games for long spells.
Both Rogic, Forrest and Sinclair poor form has been why we've struggled to break down teams since the turn of the year. I've been saying for ages that the problems in the AM positions was worrying me more than the defensive problems were
So here's hoping that Sunday's performance has been a shot in the arm to the team and a sign of things to come, that first half performance was one of the best we've seen under Rodgers imo.}

I agree about JF and he should realize by now how good he can be?
He scored a great hat-trick against Thistle in a cup game a while back and has scored a good few CL goals, so it was no fluke.
Rogic may have had the old 'WC hangover' and like Lustig (who was also brilliant on Sunday) needed time to get back to form.
Whatever the case, it really is a real pity this International Break is here again to hamper the momentum.
PS: well done Griff concentrating on 'your fitness' need more players to put club before a country who's Association has a negative agenda.

For me Rogic has been playing like commons lately having scored a few belters it went to his head and was trying to score any time he gets near the box so it was refreshing to see him make the killer passes rather going for goal himself who knows maybe someone had a word with him about it and he got back to being the creator.

Rogic and Forrest should both be well into double figures for goals and at least 20 assists a season with how much attacking we do.

It was Gordon strachan who said in a team you can carry 2-3 players that are not firing on all cylinders any more than that it’s useless and that's what it feels like to me, we’re carrying to many players that are off the boil especially Rogic and Forrest hopefully against stjohnston was a change in the right direction as the way the two linked up was unbelievable, Rogics touch, weight of pass and vision are unplayable if he’s on fire 🔥.

Cheers ed,

I agree regarding that attacking front three
They are unplayable at times, but consistency has been the issue - especially with Forrest and Rogic

Celtic’s defence is not that big a problem for me if our no.10 is receiving the ball and picking a forward pass. The classic BR ‘high press’ is the key. When We sit deep and play side to side we never get our strikers into play often enough. I reckon French ed is better taking the ball
On the move from just outside the box, I would like to see a peneltybbox optio brought it and a genuine starter for the no.10 role

Fingers crossed.

{Ed007's Note - That's probably why Rodgers wants Nick Powell.}

10 Oct 2018 21:26:28
Is there any chance of that?

{Ed007's Note - Yes there's a chance but it'll probably depend on the level/quality of Pub League interest.}

Cheers Ed.

{Ed007's Note - No probs.}
