I’m happy we are playing a 3-5-2 formation and I’m fine with the fact we will give away more chances to the opposition because I still feel Celtic will score more goals.
With the squad of players Lennon has at his disposal, I think Celtic have an advantage over all the other clubs especially with the 5 substitution rule.
But I don’t think he used the subs to our advantage yesterday.
With the way the game was finishing yesterday, I was certain when Lennon brought on Elyounoussi and Turnbull with only 5 minutes to go, we were going to change to a 4-2-3-1 and get more control and see out the game. Especially when it was our 5th substitution.
I thought he was putting Ajer right back, Bitton in the middle with Duffy and Elyounoussi, Turnbull and Forrest behind Klimala up top.
I just thought it was a strange decision by Lennon to put Elyounoussi up front with Klimala with 5 minutes to go.

Just doing my usual look through at scores etc on the live score app and noticed that omar elabdellaoui has signed for galatasaray. Checked transfer market site and he sign for free? At only 28 would of been a fantastic signing especially in the 3-5-2 formation. Hope everyone has had a great weekend 👍, HH.

I do like to revel in the rangers dropping points, but im not bragging to much, as i think we will still drop points as we look shaky defending, but hopefully we can still scrape by and pick up wins not playing particulary well.

Sevco struggle to win 5 games in a row and a winning streak is key to winning the title.
Celtic had 2 good spells last season with 11 and 8 league wins in a row.
And Celtic are currently on 5 league wins in a row.

The hibs game next will be a challenge to prove our potential. I’m confident but won’t gamble a prediction.

LeedsCelt it will be tough I hope we defend better than we have been, Boyle will have to be watched very carefully, I know a lot of fans don’t rate him but he is fast and can ping in some excellent crosses so we will have to be on our guard.

It looks like the manager has a problem with 3 double acts and trying to squeeze as many of the 6 players into a formation is what he is trying to do. Forrest or Ping-Pong? Christie or Nchamp? Eddie or Ajeti or both? Personally I believe he can fix the Nchamp/ Christie dilemma by resting his captain and playing both. The striker conundrum is easily solved by a 352 formation which makes sense, getting 2 of our best players on the pitch together. Forrest/ pingpong is more difficult and I think he should just play the form player with the other keeping him on his toes. That doesn't bring into play the LWB issue and that has to be resolved by buying someone as its the only position we don't have covered. I don't think Taylor is bad wee player at left back but he is never a wing back and we simply don't have one as playing Forest there is just square pegs in round holes and against decent opposition will be exploited. Up to PL to get the finger out and fill that position and for Lennon to step up to the plate and start making some big decisions. IE dropping Brown and seeing how we play. IMO we will be a far more dynamic team.

I agree with your post. As much as I love Brown, Lennon needs to give Ntcham more consistent playing time. Also, Taylor is definitely not a wing back, and he looks quite uncomfortable as times. In my opinion, it is now time to start the respectful phasing out of Scott Brown in the center of midfield. We have young promising talents that need a chance to flourish.

Genuine query to gauge people's thoughts

Ps, thought ajeti looked really good yesterday in spells

3 questions

Do you think we will see Griff again in a Celtic starting line up?
Does a fit Griff get in to 1st eleven?
Would you like to see Griff back in the team or at least around the 1st team squad?

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2020 15:36:11
It's an overall no from me. Lubi. No point going back over old ground. Talent's one thing but not enough on its own.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2020 15:44:47
Lubo, you may be aware I asked a similar question the other week about LG. My gut feeling is that his days at Celtic Park are numbered. He has a few factors blocking his path to the first team;- personal issues/ lifestyle choices, fitness issues and 3 players in the queue in front of him. Time will tell.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2020 15:53:48
Lubo a definite yes from me a natural goalscorer dead ball expert, Duffy would relish his crosses from corner kicks I can’t understand fans not wanting him in the team.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2020 15:55:48
Unfortunately lubo the position giffs is in is all of his own making. We needed him this season for Europe and the guy comes back over weight and unfit. Celtic have backed him all the way but the lad just doesn't seem to learn. I think a lot of fans have lost faith with the guy and who could blame anyone. The lad needs to get his head and life in order big time. As for Celtic l can't see how he comes back in unless we have a list of our C. F. out injuried.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2020 15:56:10
Even when he came back and scored in the latter stages of the 9-in-a-row, there were signs he was never going regain his 40 goal vintage best challenge and injury apart, his discipline is still very suspect.
A lot may depend on Eddy staying; but with Ajeti, Klimala and Elyounnoussi in front of him at present, he is not even on the bench.
Maybe a loan-move to Hibs or similar would work for both parties?

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2020 15:57:33
If we desparately needed a goal I'd be much more confident in Griffiths scoring than Klimala. The dilemma is, what message does it send to the guy who's worked his backside off during lockdown if he misses out to the guy who was publicly criticised by the gaffer for not pulling his weight?

20 Sep 2020 15:57:42
Griffiths is the best finisher we have. His dead ball qualities are second to none and a definite miss. If he gets his finger out and hits form then it will be hard for Lennon not to select him👍.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Sep 2020 16:04:22
I actually think if he is fit he is our third choice striker. If as hoped he finally starts playing Eddie and Ajeti together (hopefully Eddie has had a nice we rest and is ready to join us again) then he is first onto the pitch if one of the other pair gets injured or is playing crap. I don't think he can be far away now as the Polish lad just doesn't cut the mustard for me. It would be interesting to see a fit LG and Ajeti playing up to together. It could potentially be a lethal combo. stokes and Hooper im thinking!

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Sep 2020 16:16:40
Griff will come back we can play upto 5 subs so squad at moment until either new contract for Eddy is signed or 5th of Oct comes and goes and we still have Eddy i would not be getting rid of griff just yet till Jan at least just in case Eddy does go.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2020 16:32:55
He is a squad man. don't think we can say he is best finisher. Early days but ajeti looks like an unbelievable finisher. He would be third choice for me.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2020 18:53:50
He would be 3rd choice I think. Klimala has worked hard but think if I was looking for one of the 2 to come on and nick a late winner I'd bet on Griffiths.

I know am surprised we didn't put a bid in for him Its Forrest that's i talks we Aberdeen no fee agreed yet but close to it.
