Tomorrow is crucial we are just into October and can't afford another slip up, that brings pressure can these players handle it, surely guys like ralston are saying to ange that they're not comfortable playing the present system, get back to basics and start winning games, every opponent we've played looks like they can score and that's down to the system, time to change, oh and broony and ferguson are waiting.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Oct 2021 09:16:32
I disagree Mally. We have to believe in the system Ange wants to play. We're making chances and if we take them we'll win. We have to be stronger at the back yes but persevere with the way Ange wants to play and it'll come together.

02 Oct 2021 09:48:03
I completely disagree also. Why would Ralston, a player who didn't even look good enough to warm our bench before ange came in say this? He has been one of our most consistent and best performers since the manager has worked with him. The flapping on this site is unreal. I didn't think we were going to have European football at all with the state the club was in. Ange delivered. Any one with half a wit could see it was going to take some time to bed in the squad. The board dragged their heels when it came to signings. Rather than bring the Greek boy in and give him time to settle and get up to speed. In typical celtic fashion we wait until Eduard was sold. The same happened with Jota, waiting til Christie left. Sure none of.

02 Oct 2021 09:49:11
I disagree mate if we've got the players to play the system then fine, we clearly haven't and that's why we're in this mess, inverted fb isn't working it's plain to see why keep making the same mistakes, most opposition if they do their homework will punish us gaping holes in the fb area.

02 Oct 2021 09:57:21
Sure none of us want to be loosing games. But to change our footballing identity with such a large overhaul of the squad, clearly there were going to be a lot of ups and downs. With the state we were in, winning the title was never a foregone conclusion. Ange needs time to fully implement his philosophy. He has been hindered by a multitude of things outwith his control. A project of this magnitude was never going to be easy, with one hand tied behind his back.

02 Oct 2021 10:30:44
Get all that but surely they communicate, the fbs don't look comfortable that's plain to see, that's 16 games with 7 wins how long do you give it.

02 Oct 2021 10:39:03
I think Anges philosophy on football is great and when it works fantastic but I do think he has to tweak the back a little. Because we still need one or two new faces in to get his ideas to work more consistently probably in the holding midfield? But saying that I do think he is the man for the job and will get it working The board never fell asleep at the wheel they went into a coma it's sadly going to take a little time to get it sorted.

02 Oct 2021 11:03:59
I completely agree Tony. With Calmac in the holding role the rest of the midfield is unbalanced. Soro has been very poor. I thought he was fantastic before Kennedy completely dropped him for Brown. Mally I'd say Ange gets the complete season. I said to my friends before the season started that it was going to take time and I hoped we would stay within a reasonable amount of points in the first 2/ 3 months of the season.

02 Oct 2021 11:22:21
I'm absolutely baffled some fans honestly think Ange is the saviour.

For a start a good manager will adapt style of play to suit available squad he has available. When has Ange done this? He certainly has the squad to rotate and tweek.

He is a one trick pony, his results during his career prove this. High scoring, high conceding. No team will win SPFL league with these tactics.

We are going to drop more points and league will be gone by January.

02 Oct 2021 11:22:49
Full season for me lads. Ange system can be learnt they will get used to it and get better. If the players can't they will be sold and the correct lads brought in who can. We are mainly lacking scoring just now it will come.
Our defence especially Starman is not confident you can see that. Ange again will sort this. We need at least 5 new players who can play this way. Next transfer window crucial.
But angs style of play I love we look great but few players still behind a little give him time. If we play tomorrow with the same intensity as Thursday think it could be a great win.

02 Oct 2021 11:55:14
You can't have turnbull abd rogic in the same team it just doesn't work, we are far too nice, ange had Bitton and Mccarthy in the bench but waited to we were 3 mil down I'd love to go toe to toe with the best but we have to be honest we ain't good enough.

Mally, with respect it's that sort of chat multiplied by thousands that helps to create the pressure.

As for Ralston, who's been in the team for 5mins, I will guarantee you if Tony was daft enough to approach the new Manager at the tail end of September saying 'sorry boss but the players are either not fit enough or technically good enough to play your system' I guarantee you he'll be on loan to Motherwell in January and rightly so.

C'mon Mally, seriously ?.

United Ireland totally different style of football down there. Very attacking.

Already proving not to work in SPFL.

Would like to leave you with

Livingston 1-0

Dundee United 1-1.

02 Oct 2021 13:08:12
@dnn iv seen those kind of results every season mate this season is no differnt.

02 Oct 2021 13:32:05
Not having that players communicate with their manager and even if he doesn't say anything surely ange can see he's not comfortable, there was a still pic of just before Bayer scored and our 2 fbs are in the centre circle 30 secs later we conceded.

02 Oct 2021 15:23:46
United Ireland im not doubting he is a good manager in Asia, im positive he does not has ability to improve us in SPFL.

Fans talk about rebuilds, fair enough. But end of the day even fielding a team full of 2nd choice players we should be doing better.

I think the issue is maybe he is not listening to coaching staff and taking their advice how teams in SPFL will play against us.

Buck stops with Ange. I've sounded my opinion, there's no point in me boring people with same chat. Obviously I hope I'm wrong, but I fear the worst.

02 Oct 2021 15:25:31
We should be unbeaten in the league had we took our chances. The system was fine when we was winning 6-0. Players just need to be more clinical in front of goal. It should be refined a bit against the likes of Leverkusen ect as they have a better team than us but this system should be enough to dominate in the scottish league.

02 Oct 2021 16:48:51
mate we lose every season to teams so what makes this season differnt. when you look at the games we lost hearts are flying mate sit top of the league we get them first game of the season of a massive rebuild we loose to the sevies who have the best squad in the league ATM we lose to Livingston were we have not win in years and we draw with dundee utd who are having a good season so far and have beat the sevies. he has been here for a few months and basically has to gel a whole new team give the guy a break.

02 Oct 2021 16:50:30
J1 league 2018 finished 12th
J1 league 2019 finished 1st
J1 league 2020 finished 9th

Was 2019 a fluke.

02 Oct 2021 20:30:05
Ange won them their first league title for 15 years.
Nakamura never won a league title with Yokohama in his 12 combined years at the club.

03 Oct 2021 00:59:52
Buzz ronny deila won Stromgodset their first title in 43 years and look what happened there mate.

03 Oct 2021 07:53:43
yokahoma have the 12 biggest budget in there league mate so it was an achievement just get behind the guy he is 3 month into a major rebuild.
