I'm going to attempt to take some positives from the game (note that I say I'm trying! )
Beerman- the kids only 18 and has played a handful of professional games vs one of the top young English wingers in britain. He will grow and learn from that and be better for next season. Miller was again our best player. Heart, guts and a well taken goal. its a shame he scores only 1 in 3 attempts! Dodoo looked bright in the first 15mins but he isn't a winger. Get him up front. Now for the negatives. Waggie is dreadful. Hyndman was dreadful, bates should have played as Wilson and hill are too left footed. Tavs was back to his usual awful defending and to play 3 in the middle of the park with 3 strikers was a terrible call. Constantly overrun in midfield and the wingbacks were left helpless. 4-5-1 with miller sitting as an AM behind the striker (dodoo) would have been better. I don't undersrand why Toral hasn't played In the OF games. anyone know?

The most alarming thing for me is'nt the ability, its the phsyicallity, strength and fitness between both sides. i lost count how many times dodoo, waggy, hyndman got brushed aside

Dodoo was hiding yesterday and clearly doesn't fancy the physical nature of the fixture. Beerman gave away a needless penalty however hopefully he will improve. Waghorn is awful and it's baffling why the manager keeps picking him.

Good post TOTS, and agree with the positives listed. If Beerman has character he will emerge stronger very quickly. Dodoo is a striker who can have an occasional impact playing wide but first and foremost is a striker. MIller is immense and a leader. For the second week running very disappointed how the manager set up the team and a much tighter formation was required to play on the break. Lack of cuteness and guile but early days for this manager. Have heard rumours that Toral has spit the dummy.

Only player that didn't look scared of Celtic was kenny Miller maybe also hill but as for the rest they should just have bent over.

We won't lose third place. I don't put much weight into the Celtic game as right now they are the best team in the league by far.

We need players that can perform the instructions that the manager gives, we don't have that. Too many individual mistakes that were punished.

Other teams around us don't have the same quality to punish those mistakes. We will finish third (even fourth place gets European football), as long as we get that we will have made progress.

If five years ago you offered me the Europa league, I would have taken it. Every year is progression and for those they say it isn't or want it quicker remember what happened to Leeds and Gretna (let's me sensible and not end up back in the third tier)
