Going back to the Motherwell game for a moment, they pressed us high up the pitch and also put pressure on Bain playing the ball out from the back which caused us problems until we adjusted to their tactics and changed our tactics.
I think Cluj will do exactly the same on Tuesday, they will press us when we have the ball hoping to win ball back, they will defend more but will be open to fast counter attacking with their speedy players.
I think Hayes MUST play left back, drop Morgan and play Boli further forward as he is faster, stronger and more experienced in euro ties than Morgan.
I think Cluj will score, if they get first goal we must not panic and keep playing our normal game. I think we will win 2-1, or 3-1 but I expect a nervy night, Celtic in europe never make it easy for ourselves.

Playing the ball out from the back is ok when the time is right but when teams are pressing you in your own 18 yard box then it should be clear and obvious to grown men on 10+k a week that during this type of situation it is not ok to play the ball out from the back👍.

I think the ideal scenario would be, if you had good enough and fast enough players, is to play it out from the back and knowingly let the opposition press up on you and put you under pressure as you passed it back and forward along the back line, and then when you had reeled enough of them in, is ping a long ball upto LG or Eddie, but in real life the opposition would steal the ball, pass it to their striker, who would smash it into the net.

Unfortunately, the manager saw fit to play the same left-side two games running - even after it was obvious how weak we were.
Hayes and Sinclair, seem to have dropped down the roster and although Morgan did better when he went to the right-wing on Saturday, it's clear he and Boli are not experienced and able enough to defend against any half decent attacking threat.
Another concern of mine is the way Broony is being left for pace and Bain has lost the form he showed when he first claimed the jersey.
