Soz sent to early.
As u can see a lot to improve on all areas.
1 thing I would say is how slow we start a game and it seems to be we want it that way, yest being a typical example, that tactic just baffles me, we are too busy just wanting to pass it too much too early.

Agree0 Disagree0

We do start very slowly, wonder how many goals we have scored in the first 30 minutes in last 10 games.

Well spotted Tam, looking back I think we have only scored 2 goals in the first 30 minutes of our last 16 games in all competitions and one of them was against sevco in the 27th minute. The other was Timo away to St. Mirren in the 15th minute.
Those 2 goals have come in Lennons 12 games in charge.

Griffith's was the man for early goals.

To be fair to Rodgers he warned us this would come cos we were short up front.

{Ed007's Note - The same Rodgers that said:

“With all due respect to Scottish football, you can’t have three top strikers. You are not playing in the Premier League or a real competitive league. It is equally as tough (here) but in a different way. You cannot bring in another top striker because the dynamic wouldn’t work within the group, within the model of how we play, it is not going to suit us. But it is something that we have to look at.

If Moussa is out until that period and Leigh is up and down with his fitness then of course we would have to look to get one in.

I am not one for stockpiling players. I don’t want to bring in one for the sake of it. It needs to be the right quality and needs to be something that is right within the dynamics of the team and squad."

It was a problem in the squad and Rodgers thinking that I consistently highlighted at the time.}

3 top strikers isn't the same as having 3 strikers though is it?

He still stated he wanted 3 strikers.

Just that to keep 3 top class ones happy in Scotland is hard when playing up front.

So the point still stands exactly. He warned us we needed 3 strikers. Now we are short for goals. Surprise surprise.

{Ed007's Note - That doesn't even make any sense if you read what he actually said - along with later comments he made contradicting himself - but don't bother replying to it as I didn't realise it was you I answered and it won't get read or posted.}
