Watching Celtic today was like watching Groundhog Day, we were too open on the wings, the right hand side with Matthews and Ambrose is causing the whole team problems. In Midfield Bitton passed all day sadly it was side to side. Attacking we were way too obvious, I like to see the ball passed fast but we are overplaying and we are making it very easy for sides to camp in on us at home as many sides do. Guidetti needs benched, he needs to sign a contract or say “I am going at the end of the season” because his form took a dive when Celtic agreed £3 Million to get John in January.
Guidetti, Johansen, Brown had chances today and passed them up, Guidetti with 2 bad misses. We can call it bad luck in the last two games, goal chopped off, hit the post and bar, today Guidetti hit the post but our tempo was just not channelled in the right way.
The 1st half saw the above and Griffiths as well as Bitton shoot but miss. The opening 45 minutes was Corner, shot, corner, shot and so on, it was awful to watch. We were playing a team we should be sitting back off and allowing them or asking them to come at us then playing through them, we do neither, we allow the opposition to sit back and the opposition half has 21 players in it most games. Before the United defeat and today we were lucky, very lucky, in the last two weeks our luck has run out.
The tactics seem ok on paper but for the opposition manager his message is simple, sit off and let them pass and shoot from long range. We looked like scoring but I felt it wasn’t going to happen early in the 2nd half. We are way too obvious in the way we play and if we don’t sort this we could find ourselves in a title race going into the last 5 games
Ronny wants fast fit players but leaving last season’s top scorer and a player who can assist for fun on the bench is a huge mistake. Kris is no mug he knows his time is up, even if he signs a contract he will know he doesn’t fit into Ronny’s plans. This is a real shame. Ronny wants to entertain, he wants to improve, he wants goals. Well if I was him I would play the players I know can do a job
If we are not careful the new year could be a very hard 5 months
