Ralston got a game with the development squad, if he plays at the weekend that's 2 games under his belt before the European the. Is that enough after such a long time out? And do you think BR is considering him or will he go with Hendry or Ajer at RB? Or will he do neither aand stick with 352? That's the big decision I think.

Think we need to go with the 352 put our best performance in a long time under that formation playing the 2 strikers.

I hate 3 at the back. We het caught out with diagonal balls all time. Use to happen to oneils teams in Europe a lot.

{Ed007's Note - It happened at Kilmarnock on Saturday, Kev with the ball to Jordan Jones.}

Exactly ed.
Løvenkrands loved it when we played it and I mind our fans going nuts about it.
We oneil switched agathe to RB Løvenkrands never kicked a ball against Celtic again.
Like I said above teams in Europe use to target it all the time.

{Ed007's Note - It's the standard way to play against a 3 man defence.}

If i’m being honest I don’t get the hype about young Ralston, I know he hasn’t played many first team games but he hasn’t done anything of great note in the few that he has, he is no Kieran Tierney, he will probably get better with experience, I don’t think throwing him into the Zenit game is the answer, if Lustig is fit he is the best and most experienced right back at the club despite having a couple of disappointing games recently .

I'm quite happy going into the second half of the season. We have been really struggling for a bit of creativity in the final third. we now have a potentially new and improved (3) in the attack mid section. Mousonda, Rogic, Roberts sounds seriously exciting to me and rogic and Roberts should be back soon.

Not nice to see griff injured by I think it will be the catalyst for Dembele to return to form. Nchamp looks better every time I see him and the defence can only improve with Lustig and Gorden not playing. Add in hopefully some quality and experience at the back when comper is fit and I think we will have a great second half of the season. sorry for all the positivity guys! I'm new take it easy on me!

Lustig has been one of our best defenders for years and I am sure once he gets over this injury he will again star for us Sweden .
Gordon has been first class for us, apart from clearing and passing which has gone astray from time to time . This has been the fault of defenders and midfielders who haven't made enough space for themselves hence creating problems.

2.) 02 Feb 2018 15:04:31
You just made the perfect case why we need better defenders now. How do you squat that with your nothing to see, its all fine, rogers will improve him stance.

If it isn't Gordon's fault that he has too many passes to make because of failures in the defence and the midfield then what's your argument forgot addressing that?

As for Lustig? we love the big guy but he has lost a yard and his distribution has slumped. It may well be all done to his injury, but, can we take the chance? Can we all just say a prayer and cross fingers, or do we bring someone in to mitigate against the possibility that Lustig is getting too old to deal with the challenges?

If Lustig returns to top form then we have adequate cover at the very least. doing nothing means we are left hoping with nothing to put in place should that hope prove ill conceived.

If you were to ask the support what area of the field needs the most attention it wold be the defence, a keeper and the need for a creative midfielder.

we have sorted one of those. Comparre is unavailable for Europe and Hendry might not be ready to even be fielded in the SPFL. We have brought in a goalie who mightn't be able to challenge Dorus, we are not convinceded by Dorus yet the player brought in as cover probably isn't as good as he is. How is that a wise move either?

If Rogers plays Hendry from the start tomorrow, then it sends a signal that he thinks he has acquired the "quality" he was talking about. If he doesn't then Hendry is a project.

Apart from yourself, how many fans think at this stage the answer to our defensive problems should be addressed with a project?

Does anyone know how long Marshall has on his contract and a ball park figure of how much he would cost? Cheers.


1.) 29 Jan 2018 20:25:42
According to transfermarkt website it says he is out of contract on 30.06.2019.

2.) 29 Jan 2018 22:24:43
Cant see him coming back to Scotland.

Interesting team. kt and Forrest wing backs three defence minded midfielders. Two strikers! definitely a change of tactics from the 4-0 drubbing. Time will tell.

I think he will be on the bench Peter. A bit like Sinclair in his first start against them. I will be happy if he has the same impact as Sinclair had on his debut and beyond.
