The Prestigous Europa League thread 2018/2019


#281

Mulumbu performing resolutely.


#282

I think we’ll lose 3-1 guys.


#283

Very much under the cosh


#284

I don’t think Hendry should leave that at all.


#285

Gone very narrow here. Salzburg’s deliveries have been good, I wouldn’t have much faith in Celtic being able to defend their 18 yard line for another 60 minutes


#286

Definitely prioritizing bodies in the middle over supporting the wing backs. McGregor would usually have a bit of freedom to help defensively but tonight he’s just been in the screen with Ntcham and Mulumbu.


#287

Griffiths has a great leap.


#288

Shocking yellow there,


#289

Very harsh yellow there.


#290

Should Edouard have done better?


#291

I thought he did very well there.


#292

Got it caught under his feet when the chance presented itself.


#293

Eduard is very raw


#294

Yeah but he did well to create that. He was unlucky more than anything I thought.


#295

These lads are some whingers.


#296

Wonder if we’ll keep two up front. Griffiths hasn’t really done much. Edouard has been mixed but took his goal brilliantly and is more useful defensively anyway but may not be as fit.


#297

Hard for the lads to do much up front when the ball isn’t really being used constructively. I think Griffiths has been lively but we haven’t had enough of the play to get him in.

Edouard on the other hand is more suited to feeding on scraps and took his goal well but has been quite frustrating and isn’t making the ball stick there like you need him to.


#298

Yeah agreed with that but Griffiths isn’t making it stick either.

I wouldn’t be blaming either of them either by taking them off. Just thinking we didn’t think we’d have a lead to defend and we aren’t able to cover them wide when we commit numbers centrally.


#299

Yeah, I don’t think Griffiths has been bad but Edouard certainly more suited to the lone striker than Griffiths. The options on the bench aren’t too inspiring, I don’t think Christie will ever be good enough and Sinclair has been off key this season.


#300

Sinclair’s pace I guess is useful in this sort of game and he’s not the most defensive player in the world but at least he’ll know the system better.

Ntcham has been poor I think but had a nice steal a couple of moments ago. Hope he gets it together now.
