When Shane Duffy was brought in Lennon started playing the 3-5-2 formation.
There were 7 games until the International break with Sevco next up to try and get a settled team and plenty of time to make the formation work in our favour.
We are now 4 games down out of the 7 and it’s not working. It is time for change starting on Sunday against Hibs.
Until Celtic buy a suitable LWB to play the 3-5-2 formation, I would play a 4-4-2 which would suit Taylor at left back.
Taylor is a wasted jersey preserving with him at LWB.
Brown needs taken out of the midfield as soon as possible.
McGregor is a more than capable replacement in the Brown roll and we can then bring a more energetic Turnbull into the midfield.
Lennon has 3 more games to implement the solution the fans worked out weeks ago.

That’s meant to say persevering with Taylor at LWB.

We were awful and no amount of spin from lenny will alter that. we just haven't started this season there's no creativity in the team Christie runs about passing it sideways and eddy was a wasted jersey last night. taylor needs replaced with a frimpong like left sided player. time to give turnbull a run. pkay like that on Sun and hibs will bear us. you have been warned.

I still believe Celtic have the players and it’s trying to find a balance which suits the players Lennon has at his disposal.
It’s a disgrace we haven’t signed a suitable LWB after the Boli fiasco at the start of August.
Taylor is a left back and doesn’t look comfortable playing further forward.
Mcgregor can play the Brown role and Lennon has plenty of other options for a much more balanced midfield.
If Lennon can sort out those 2 positions, it would probably make a big improvement to our play.
Edouard’s performance last night is a big worry.
In the past he has been left isolated up front on his own which wasn’t his fault.
But last night is the worst I’ve seen him play in a Celtic shirt.
I didn’t think Eddy was capable of playing as poor as he did.
He is either carrying an injury or he isn’t interested.

This season really is just roll up the sleeves and get it done . Looks like it’s going up be a long slog unless wee pull our socks up .

Buzz as poor as we were last night like the season so far it was tough for Eddy any time he received the ball there was two or three players on him and no room inside the box. There is a problem at the club just now, those same players who were blowing teams away before lockdown are a shadow of themselves whatever the problem is it needs to be remedied now before it’s too late.

Seems we have been saying the same thing since the CL exit Buzz. There's a decent enough left back in Taylor, but we don't have any pace/ penetration left-side the way Frimpong excites on the right.
The transfers-in looked to address our needs, but why we still don't have a left sided player in place at the end of Sept is ridiculous; As is the managers perseverance with a system that - as well as slows us down, suiting every opponent - doesn't get the best out of the team, especially when our own players actually nullify each other!
I also agree about the attitude and desire that's lacking in certain players, who can obviously play much, much better and it's going to get worse unless the problem is rooted out, whether by moving-on or playing in a formation that gets the best from them.
Finally, I hit a nerve on here when I said NL didn't have the bottle to drop Broony and I stick by that and it's obvious he does not trust a team that does not include the skipper, whether it's to carry the underperformers or protect a shaky defense? However, that too must be addressed before Scott Brown 'burns-out' before Christmas, playing twice a week; mostly against teams we should be beating without him. what odds he plays against Hibs (sunday) ?

I think eddy wants out ASAP and doesn't want to get injured. If that is the case start playing ajeti and klimala together and let them build a partnership together. We need to do something as the football we are playing is boring we either need a new formation or manager. For me if the manager can't get an acceptable performance with the best squad in the league he has to go. Sevcis result last night shows how much better in Europe they are than us. That was a good win for them while we struggled badly against decent opposition. Not great opposition we have to start playing with flair and freedom again like we did when we scoring goals for fun. Now we look like we just don't want to get beaten and there is no plan b how long is this going to continue for.

Brown has to be dropped, before this turns into the Scott Brown testimonial team and nothing more, the team lacks creativity and movement in midfield, their is nothing wrong with Taylor, the problem is Brown, concentrating on Taylor is just diverting away from the real problem with the team.

The real problem lies with Lennon for continually playing Taylor at LWB.
Taylor has always been used to a teammate playing in front of him for support.
Now he is left isolated on the left and is expected to continually take on the full back, which he is incapable of doing.
I know you have wanted Brown out of our midfield for the last few seasons,
And I have to now agree with you because the lockdown hasn’t been kind to him which is understandable considering his age.
