Thoughts now on Benkovic (he has been fit all season btw) on loan? Miles better than what we have. Ajer falls asleep too often. And we badly need a McGinn type player. And a CF. Get three in, we have every chance. If we have same squad, it could be a tough watch.

{Ed007's Note - Not for me, get a player that's going to be here for the long haul. Ajer's still young who will learn from his mistakes and players like that need to be playing to keep progressing. Rio Ferdinand made mistakes when he was 21 and I'm sure the older posters will say so did Billy McNeill.
The problem's not in the defence - it's in the midfield and Lennon persisting with the Brown/McGregor combination in the 4-2-3-1.}

Agree to an extent Ed but it's not their fault that we can't defend a corner. Guy had a free run and jump and Ajer did little to stop him. And for me he does this too often as he isn't a natural defender. He might improve, but I'm not convinced. Agree midfield needs sorting, to deep and with wingers tha gap between Eduord and Brown/ McGregor is enormous.

{Ed007's Note - I've said for the last couple of years that it should be McGregor pulling the string in midfield instead of Brown whose 2nd touch is usually a tackle.
And why didn't the manager have players on the posts at corners?
As for Ajer not being a natural defender that's just pish, he's been marked to be a CB since he was young and it was only his physicality when he was young that stopped him playing there. We signed Ajer as a CB and I'll never understand some people's infatuation in playing players in other positions, it's that kind of thinking that has Christie on the right and Forrest - who was invisible again and seems to be going back the way with regards to his consistency - on the left.}

Ajer falls asleep? Our midfield was non existent today he at least tried to bypass them and get things going. I’m away to bed this is hurting my heid.

Ed do you think if we end up signing this Ivorian lad Soro that'll end our interest in Turnbull?

{Ed007's Note - No, they are totally different players. Soro is a CDM and Turnbull's a CAM.}

I have had doubts about Ajer ever making it as a top centre back for some time now and although he was solid at the beginning of the season, he is prone to lapses in concentration and costly mistakes. Why don't we invest in a tried and tested partner for Jullien and use him to bolster midfield in games like today?

Ed oo7 100 percent correct with players on posts they did and had two clearances? We didn’t and lost goal .

29 Dec 2019 23:08:42
Definitely think we lost the midfield battle today and the last game also, is it any wonder with only 2 in there to their 3.

Center Halves now getting blamed for their zonal marking instructions, even although the big bad Colombian CF that everyone said “had to score sometime” was kept quiet once again.

We got outplayed in the cup, yet we stood by the same formation. What does Forrest offer that Frimpong doesn’t? For me, they’re too similar going forward. so don’t put them on the same side.

Wee light Mikey Johnston on the same side as dodgy boli? 3 in center midfield versus their floating 5.

Apart from their very average LB I wouldn’t swap a single player from their team for ours. which to me means we got outcoached.

Interested to hear anyone fight Lennon’s corner on this one. Even his “we were the better team” comment is concerning. I’m not panicking, I still think Lennon can win us the league, but surely we have to admit that he got it wrong in the cup and failed to even fix it today!

According to Keef Jackass he missed "an array of sitters" and we couldn't handle his physicality. Jullien dealt with him fine and he dropped like a stone every time anybody touched him.
