Anyone else seen Dundee to sign Caulker? Surely he would have been worth a punt for 6 months at least to see how he done .

Might be time to try the old 442 again Rich T? With the setup of every team we face now domestically we are outnumbered in mf it seems. With three players playing in front of two there is zero space or support. There is litteraly no-one playing in the centre circle. Every game I watch. If the ball is squeezed out to the wings it takes us an eternity to carry the ball forward.

I would start the same team who played against Hearts. Moussa needs support. We need Kouassi in there to dig in and try to nullify their midfield threat.

At the back, it’s a toss up of a variation of players we are not fully confident can defend to a level we need. I think Rogers will put in Hendry, it would be a strange one if even he didn’t think he could cut it as his only cb signing who can actually play.

Hopefully if he does, he repays what Rogers saw in him. He has to because we need at least a point in this tie or we go into the cl qualifiers with the prospect of being drawn against a seeded team.

If the defence sells the jerseys this tie, and only those in possession of the thickest green specs don’t think that is a real possibility, then the responsibility is wholly Rogers for being in this position after four transfer windows squandered to sort it.

A combination of loss of form, injuries and the same vulnerable defence mean we go into this tie in probably the worst shape we have been since Rogers took over.

I can’t see him playing Charlie from the start, as he will need time to find his feet as he has been ineffective so far. We need at least a point and I will be happy if we achieve that as a first step. Play the way we can and I would be confident of that, but we haven’t played that way often enough. Hopefully this could be the game to return to and maintain our form for the rest of the season. Conversely, if we get taken to the cleaners, it will dent confidence even more and sets up a nervy run in to secure another Treble.

To be in a position where Aberdeen and Sevco genuinely believe they have a chance of beating us at their maddens shows us clearly how poor we have been. We should be out of sight of them with the resources at our disposal. What gives them real hope is the undeniable fact our defence can be got at. Couple this with us stalling mid to front and you can see if our form continues they are right. They do have a chance, two pish teams fancying their chances says everything about how we have stalled yet again in true Celtic fashion.

Rangers have improved, they are still on paper nowhere near us, but games aren’t won on paper and our players need a rocket up their arse to let them know that. It’s time they stood up and played the way they can. The sideways and back pattern of play is down to players having no confidence to beat a man and run at defences with speed and good passing. Against Hearts we saw this in spades. We need it back on Thursday. Then every game after that.
