Celtic thread, Fred

Recommended Posts

I’m sorry but Clarke is now breaking tradition. The rules are player signs player plays next game. They don’t train and get gradually introduced that is not the killie way. 

On a serious note I like that team. Plenty of pace and energy but a bit of muscle as well. Surprised he’s gone with Rory, Jones and Brophy but I think a lot of people and hopefully Celtic will be to. 

Good to see Greer back. Scott Boyd seemed to be struggling in the last few games so a welcome change.

An awful lot depends on the back eight.

I can't see Jones, Brophy and Boyd contributing much in a defensive capacity so we will have to be on the front foot. If we aren't, I can see midfield getting overrun.

Clarke could have gone for a 4-4-2 with Findlay LB and Taylor MF but he's gone for the extra attacker and he knows what he's doing.

Bold selection - let's go for it!

I'd rather lose like this than the LM way where we put 10 defenders and Boyd on a pitch and hope to keep it in single digits. 

If you go down having a go at them then there's a lot to be said for that.

I'm always glad to see us lining up to have a go at the old firm, I always feel that we're expected to lose these games so we might as well have a go and try to get something as opposed to lining up defensively and getting thumped 5/6-0

Surely you don’t mean he’s gone out and got us a good deal without any clauses? What kind of manager is he?

The team looks OK considering Power is unavailable.

I would have been inclined to go with more in midfield with a "DOOR STEWARD" build but SC knows best.

I like Clarke’s approach, respect butt no fear for the twisted sisters.  It’s exactly the attitude which won us the league cup, and it’s clearly been the attitude which has got us winning games.

Get right in about these bastards, KTID.

Half an hour gone and I can't remember a match v. Celtic with such little goalmouth action.

Far from taking the game to them, we have - as Rodgers predicted - sat in deep. Clarke said we need a mistake-free performance - McKenzie and O'Donnell look gaff-prone to me.

Boyatta off and Ajer probably following - expect Rodgers to rage about the pitch!
