Bayo looked the part today he's a handful and appears to have the gift of being in the right place makes defenders work and is an aerial threat which we didn't have. So up front we look good apart possibly from left wing and we have plenty options in the middle of the park. But here's the but. we can't go to Ibrox with that defence. Our best centre half is playing at right back. Beaton had a howler and there's still a question mark over Julian who hopefully may come good and deserves a bit of time. But here's the biggest but, tell me who sanctioned £3m for that left back? Apparently Lennon has made clear it wasn't him. He just can't play next Sunday. Anybody, Hayes even if he's fit hopefully anybody and having seen him today (and I criticised him on here for doing it) maybe Lennon had no option other than play McGreggor at left back when we got knocked out the Champions League. If we don't sign a left back before Sunday we need to take the game to Rangers because we certainly can't go not to lose. If we don't sign at least one if not two full backs this window I don't think we'll win the league.

A fot boli looked good today mate?

25 Aug 2019 20:50:47
I also thought he looked gd and has done the past couple of games . the only thing is, he hasn't really been tested defensively and I think that could be an issue with him, ok going forward but when under pressure and tracking back he's a bit suspect, i've not seen anything yet to suggest he should be our number 1 LB in big games.

Boli has played well the last 2 game and must play sunday.

25 Aug 2019 21:34:10
Kev, we don’t often agree but ma laddie said today when driving me into the game that Kev83 talks sense when we talk tactics and recruitment. But pray tell hoe you could have possibly thought Boli played well today defensively?

25 Aug 2019 21:40:04
Am with you Kev start him next two games.

25 Aug 2019 22:26:12
Boli must not play on Sunday because he will get destroyed. I don't believe he will start because our new signing will make his debut. It will be a baptism of fire for him and is possibly unkind but desperate times and all that. We can't possibly play Boli.
This will be our 3rd game in a row going to ibrokes with no balance in the team.
After viewing the first 2 line ups we knew we were in trouble because the balance was all over the place.
8 months on from the December game and we still have no balance. We don't have a natural left winger who is strong enough to play at ibrokes because he won't play Sinky. We will now have to play someone out of position or throw Johnston in there and hope he can handle the physical side 3rd time lucky.

Jfp I would never accept going anywhere in scotland and setting up not to lose, I think your giving rangers far too much credit, they seem to have improved but they struggled today did they not? I think we'll turn them over next weekend no matter who plays left back. It does look like it might be closer but even with the squad as it is we should win the league. My worry is that bayo scoring a double might convince the board to consider offers for eddy. I hope not cos he's pivotal.

I have hope for boli to come good after the last couple of games where as before that I thought we'd been conned into buying a guy who had never heard of football never mind played it.

25 Aug 2019 23:21:48
Boil played well
So did bitton.

People just being extra critical of boli and have made snap judgements on him. In last 2 games not many or any chances have came from down our left hand side.
He's also been very good going forward.
People ready to jump on his every mistake while other players make them and get away with it.
Every player makes mistakes but boli is improving with every game
He's got to play on Sunday. The defence that's played with him in it has hardly lost any goals but when he was dropped we got scudded for 4. Play the left back at left back and keep the rest in their positions.

If we play with the same tempo and aggresiveness Rangers will committ more fouls (as usual) they commit 40 or more and recv 2 yellows we commit 15 and have 5. However this aside footballing wise if we start well enough which seems to be our undoing then we seem to improve as the game goes on. Is it a case of not fully believing in themselves or being wary of opposition. We need to stand up to rangers aggressiveness first then play football. It can't and won't all just be pretty. but if we manage this our skill will show through and I feel although we may lose a couple that we will score a couple more than them. let's go mr let's go again.

It's pretty clear that Boli is 'naturally' a wing forward. He's a threat at the front but there'll be times he gets caught out in defence. He's looking more settled but there's a fair bit of coaching to do if he's going to be a successful full back.
