After recruiting so well in the full back areas in the summer, its ironic that I think we could be quite vulnerable there on Sunday.
Take out moi and eddy and lenny has a lot of decisions to make.
Ajer bitton jullien hayes.

Frimpong brown McGregor Forrest




Frimpong jullien ajer hayes

Christie brown McGregor Forrest



If moi boli eddy are all fit, we have so many options.
Pick your team troops. i know it's hard not knowing who's fit.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why play a CB who has formed a fantastic partnership with the other CB at right back when we have at least 2 fully fit good right backs in the squad?

For me if all injured players make it then its

El hammed




If they are injured then it

Both teams would win the cup kev.

06 Dec 2019 12:15:50
Play our best players in their best positions and we won't be far away steph.

06 Dec 2019 12:25:42
For me kev I don't really fancy bauer. i don't think he has shown much tbh.
Frimpong I would rather on the big hampden pitch to be further up.
Ajer yes its not ideal, has played there and given motm performances before.
Under lennon bitton has never let us down and his range of passing over the top for frimpong and forrest into space could be crucial.
Taylor is cup tied and if griff was to start surely he would have started against Hamilton.
If all are fit the team picks its self.
Elhamd is the no1 rb.
Boli lb.
Moi left and eddy up top. 🙏🙏.

{Ed007's Note - Apparently Hayes, Elyounoussi, Bolingoli, Edouard and Bayo have all trained and passed fitness tests but Elhamed didn't.}

Cheers ed.
That changes to picture.
Give us your 11 ed with what we know now.

{Ed007's Note - The only ones I'm not sure of is the fullbacks. I like Hayes and he's proven this year he's more than capable of playing LB so the physical side of derby games might suit him better and the same goes with Bauer/Frimpong at RB.
I expect us to be playing most the game in their half and considering what Tavernier said today - "we have to defend for our lives and give everything on Sunday" - they're going to try and park the bus so I'll go for the more attacking FBs to keep the pressure on them high up the park.





Their tactics will likely be to try and soak up our pressure and hit us on the break using Kent.}

06 Dec 2019 12:54:41
The temptation is to start with boli but he ain't played for a while so I think he might go for hayes.
As I said beuar am not to sure about so it has to frimpong.
If moi start then Christie moves in one and if eddy is fit then that's our best options up front.

06 Dec 2019 12:58:04
Hopefully they players are fit Ed. and if so the team picks itself. All players in their natural positions. 👍.

06 Dec 2019 13:48:52
I think he looks a good defender and put some lovely balls in to the box on Wednesday.
I ain't convinced about frimpong defensively. Bauer to me in a stronger defender and rangers left side is their most dangerous. That's why its bauer for me.
But no way should we be breaking up the julian and ajer partnership.
Especially when ajer is the more physical and it's going to be a battle with moreles in there.

06 Dec 2019 13:54:51
I think they will play with Kent and Barker on the wings and try and counter us the way they did in Porto. For me, Gerrard is so predictable and this is what he will go with.

06 Dec 2019 14:04:58
Agreed kev83
Bauer for me frimpong not there yet but the passing ability of Bauer is being over looked on here and he is physical maybe overly sometimes.
There is games in the future for frimpong maybe less attack more defence but suppose Lenny is saying that's what he want but defence should be first priority. How many crosses mostly perfect did he put in against Hamilton. but our lads need to get in in that.
Our second choices are not to bad. Agreed also they will be looking for our scrapes and trying the counter attack. If we go at them and get early goals but strong at the back as they have players who can make a difference.

06 Dec 2019 14:16:50
That's the team I want for Sunday (Ed's pick) The only danger would be Kent and morelos but both won't handle the pressure.

06 Dec 2019 17:49:53
Don't think The rangers will sit back and park the bus, think they will try to fly out of the stalls, and catch us cold, this game will not be won just because one team has the better players, it will be won by the team with the better attitude and the better tactics, let that team be Celtic.

06 Dec 2019 17:56:03
Its a nice problem to have when we have options on the flanks. I would prefer bauer to start cos I think they will use kent a lot as an out ball in the first 20 mins, I think bauer is a solid rb. Frimpong can come on with half an hour to go and compound their misery. Id probably say hayes for lb too to give us a bit of strength, they will be physical cos they know they'll get away with it. Im very confident going in to this one, more so than normal.

06 Dec 2019 18:26:31
With everyone fit the team picks itself which is the team Ed has said. I just can't see us losing on Sunday. They won't be able to cope with our pace 4-1 I reckon.
