Celtic will need to step up a gear or 2 tomorrow.
St. Johnstone are unbeaten in 90 minutes since they conceded 2 injury time goals to Celtic a couple of months ago.
They’ve played 10 games since and have only lost on penalties to Dundee Utd in a league cup section match after a goalless draw.

As has been mentioned below; we are apprehensive about every game these days and even at Celtic Park where we have lost four on the trot in all competitions - unheard of in recent years.
It's easy to say things have to get better and Sevco will hit a bad run, but it's safe to say they will not hit as bad a run as we have and I a wee bit worried, we have given ourselves a mountain to climb, with no compass, guide or sure-footing to recover from another fall.

{Ed007's Note - So you think TRIFC can't lose 1 and draw 2 games out of 13, they've drew 2 out of 15 so far. That's our run in the league, we've lost one game and drew 2 in 13 and there's an absolute meltdown over it.}

Of course that scenario is possible Ed; but in turn we have to go on an unbeaten run home and away for the rest of the campaign and at present that looks unlikely while the current goalkeeping and defending shortfalls continue - not to mention other hindrances.
If we could string at least two wins together it would be a start?
Mistakes are being repeated every game as are questionable team selections and substitutions and although NL has spoken of dealing in the Jan transfer window, there are six domestic games to go including a Cup Final and we are all hoping rather than expecting these days.

We have the best squad by a country mile, we just need to prove it. Know it’s not the popular opinion but I thought we looked sharper going on the offensive against Milan . At the back, gawd only knows. For three of the goals, we had plenty of bodies back, but they keep running into each other like keystone cops and not looking around, leaving people unmarked inside the box.
Hanker for the days of no nonsense defenders like Bobo, Elliot, Mialby etc. But at the mo I would play a flat back four ( all defensive minded, not wingbacks) just to try and find a solid base and build a bit of confidence. Need to get back to basics, and hopefully buy time until the board get their end sorted.

Did somebody make four at the back and two up front illegal? Spot on get back to basics.

He proved doesn't matter if we lose he won't lose his job still picking the same players and nothing getting better we need a complete clearout as soon as possible and get players who want to be there and win stop the rot thus was the same and Sun will be again no trust in the manager or the board leads to getting humiliated st Johnstone are on good form I can't see anything but gloom its sad.

I’m surprised Lenny hasn’t tried a 4-4-2 this season because it’s the formation he’s used regularly in management before.
I was looking at how Dan Petrescu usually lines up his teams.
He normally goes with a 4-3-3 in an attacking formation.
Petrescu sometimes uses 4-1-3-2 which I think could work with Celtic.
Calmac could play the holding role with Rogic in front with Elyounoussi and Christie on either side. We would also have the 2 strikers up front.
I don’t know if that would be leaving Calmac with too much on his plate because Rogic isn’t the fittest of players to track back and help.
Soro could play the holding role with Calmac in front of him or it could be easier to just play a solid 4-4-2.

05 Dec 2020 16:07:22
Totally agree with that because it's logical and practical; something I've not seen enough of this season under NL. Especially when we have refused to play a front pairing out of all the striking choices we have long enough for them to remember each other's names.
However. a solid back-line is a priority right now as results show.

05 Dec 2020 16:17:25
Buzz bang on I just don’t get playing with one striker Eddy and have your pick playing off him Ajeti, Kimala or Griffiths.

And four at the back when we’re shipping goals has got to be the starting point.

Big Duffy needs told stop trying to play football player just head it or kick it the way you’re facing. If that’s row Z fine.

He’s also shown he can take abuse but he needs to start dishing it out.

Call mac can't tackle look at Milan third and fourth needs a rest imohh.

Sevco will suffer from fatigue and injuries at some point this season. Like last season, minute a team floods midfield it puts a stop to them. St Liege were unlucky the other night.

agree the league is not as bad as every one is making out. its Europe that has made us look bad. the sevies have been a few games in front of us all season which is making there lead look worse than it actual is. silly to be conceding the league just now. i think we will win league and all this laughter from the sevies the last 2 month will make the league more sweeter plus it will be 10 in a row.

There can be no slip ups and if there is he has to go.

Philtim. why have you not been employed by any team yet? You seem to know how to stop rangers, tactical genius you are. If our midfield is weak, what on earth does it say about yours who we have ran over the top of the last few games? Your some chap lol. Id love a grown up conversation with some Celtic fans. Dunno why eds are scared to post comments from us. If its offensive then fair play.
