Very sore one today, but for individual mistakes we would have taken at least a draw from the match. Celtics second goal was a disgrace, you should never be beaten by a long hopeful punt up the park and what Goss was doing for their third was unbelievable.

He just let Edouard walk into the penalty area an have a free shot at goal. And Windass once again showed that he is far too often a passenger when we need him most. When you compare their middle 3 and ours it really is a no contest at the moment. I know a lot of fans are wanting us to sign Goss permanently but would he get in the Celtic team? I don't think so therefore we should be looking for better.

Murty should have changed it a bit sooner for sure.

Positives to be taken are we certainly are. Lot closer. Celtic can no longer just turn up and roll is over. And for me the biggest positive was the performance of docherty, I thought he was immense. If we could add a bit of muscle in beside him next season we will be in good shape.

Zikos, one of your final comments (Celtic can no longer just turn up and roll is over) seems to be at odds with what say before it and what actually happened.

2.) 12 Mar 2018 13:23:52
Zikos, we have better in Dorrans, Jack and McCrorie plus Rossiter, but sadly they are all injured!

3.) 12 Mar 2018 21:48:01
Styab - I just think that we could have got something out of the game if it hadn't been for a couple of (crucial) mistakes. I think we are a lot closer to them now and they can no longer just turn up and win, they actually have to put a shift in and like yesterday ride their luck.

Saying that - for us to be better than them we need to improve the midfield three. that's where I think the game (and most gasmes) was won/ lost.

Doherty was class, Goss just didn't perform and Windass was a passenger. I know he has scored a lot of goals lately but still don't think he is a number 10.

4.) 14 Mar 2018 12:02:17
Zikos one poor performance from Goss doesn't suddenly make him a bad player, also it looked like Murty asked him to sit back for more cover and that's not his strengths he is far better off as holding midfielder who likes to get forward.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but didn't Cummings only play well in the championship, I can't remember him doing anything in the SPL. And so I don't get all the hype for what's essentially a really good championship player. If we get him on loan, then fine, but I wouldn't take a risk on him if we had to buy him as he has never performed at this level.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 22:43:45
Would b great signing hope we get him.

2.) 08 Jan 2018 07:25:19
Zikos, Cummings was only 18 when His got relegated and only broke into their team in the playoffs, where he scored their two goals against Hamilton.

3.) 08 Jan 2018 10:02:37
I'm not a fan of Cummings tbh. He comes across as a wee bed, much like Griffiths and would not want him near us. Anyway he hasn't kicked a ball down south. Also stories of late night drinking etc apparently. I think you guys are right when you say he stood out in the championship and not in the top flight. I think everybody remembers him lifting his game against us and assumed that was his normal form, which clearly is not the case. I'd leave well alone.

4.) 08 Jan 2018 11:52:08
If Cummings was half as good for us as Griffiths has been for them, it's a yes from me.

5.) 08 Jan 2018 14:43:45
I'm pretty sure Cummings only came into the Hibs team in the second half of the season where they were relegated, and even at that the majority of his appearances were from the bench. He was sold in the summer after the were promoted so he hasn't really had time to prove his ability in the SPL, however he hasn't exactly been lighting up the Championship down south. I reckon he would work well with Morelos up front for us but my preference would be to give MOH a shot through the middle with Morelos.

Merry Christmas Everyone and Happy and Better 2021 when it comes!

Can somone help me out with the best way to view matches on RTV.

I have a pass but i'm fed up with it tbh. Most times when I go to watch a match it only gives me an audio option. I have been able to watch the odd game but god knows how.

If someone knows can you please let me know.



1.) 26 Dec 2020 12:57:52
Think the video is only available to outside UK so you would need to get a VPN and then set your country as anywhere outside UK mate.

2.) 26 Dec 2020 13:39:26
Snell - Even with ST and RTV pass?

3.) 26 Dec 2020 14:30:23
Nah ST should have you covered mate! I'm scunnered then!

4.) 26 Dec 2020 15:09:40
Snell, do you know if we need a new code for every match? Or do you just enter the code the once?

5.) 26 Dec 2020 17:57:54
Zikos enter code once mate.

The Roofe, The Roofe, The Roofe is on FIRE 🔥 🔥 🔥!

Great performance and result today. Hopefully McInnes was watching that today because Gerrard showed everyone exactly how to play Celtic. He completely nullified the threat from the flanks this afternoon and forces them into passing it sideways most the game - their whole team looked lost.


1.) 18 Oct 2020 07:53:02
Watching sportscene last night you get so caught up in the game u don't realise our tactics at the time. But McCann summed it up. Borna and Tav were actually sitting deeper and playing it in behind rather than bombing up and down. Well done the gaffer. Also aberdeen will sit back 10 men behind ball as usual.

2.) 18 Oct 2020 08:43:58
The Mankies are bang average, with over hyped players . They were all over the place due to the Famous tactics. They will hide behind the players missing, but they would not have made much a difference I feel, Rangers didn’t get out of second gear, we know that we can play much better. As for the sheep they will fold like usual, up to us to keep winning as we can beat the mankies when it comes round to them as we saw yesterday.
Come on the Teddy Bears🇬🇧.

3.) 18 Oct 2020 09:11:04
They played with a high pressing back 8 and Goldson found a way through felt Morelos was great in the link up play but didn't get a chance to be a striker against them but the way we played around that back 8 was beautiful.

4.) 18 Oct 2020 09:33:28
Arfield was a lot deeper as well, he wasn't support morelos or making the darting runs in behind as much. the idea was clearly to pack the midfield, close the wings and have kent barker one v one against one of their back 3. They had no idea how to play us. 👍.

5.) 18 Oct 2020 15:18:30
No doubt Mcinnes and his team will assume the position next week as they always do.



21 Aug 2020 16:04:17
If Ryan Kent does go I would be right on the phone to Scott Sinclairs agent.

I'm sure he would love to come up here and get one over on popcorn teeth after the way he was forced out the door.

After that call I'd then phone Martin Boyle's agent!


1.) 21 Aug 2020 16:14:28
Ohh dear 😕.

2.) 21 Aug 2020 16:23:20
And i'd hope BT had cut off your line 🤣😂.

3.) 21 Aug 2020 16:36:20
Thank god you're not in charge zikos.

4.) 21 Aug 2020 16:42:51
I’ve heard it all now.

5.) 21 Aug 2020 17:38:38
Zikos hypothetical question pal because ryan kent won't be going anywhere! 👍.

6.) 21 Aug 2020 17:57:02
Sgl I hate it when you make you're statements as normally the opposite happens! I'd like Kent to stay by the way.

7.) 21 Aug 2020 18:24:38
Snell - 🤣🤣🤣🤣.

8.) 21 Aug 2020 18:30:10
In all fairness SS is only 31 yr old. I’m sure with good coaching and building his confidence back up he would deliver more than Kent. Remembering even in his worst year up here inhospitable stats were better than Kent’s best year!

He scored 21 goals and 10 assists one year. If only we had a wide player with those stats.

9.) 21 Aug 2020 18:52:22
We will have with ryan kent as he improves with age.

10.) 21 Aug 2020 18:55:17
Jesus wept 🤦🏻‍♂️.

11.) 21 Aug 2020 19:19:44
How long do you think we will need to wait SGL, he isn’t a kid anymore I think he is 23 or 24. When is he going to learn how to play the game and pass the ball?

12.) 21 Aug 2020 19:33:40
All due respect Zikos. stop talking absaloute dug meat! Scott Sinclair, Martin Boyle, a really fear for you in the near future.

13.) 21 Aug 2020 19:38:27
SGL if leeds match the valuation of rangers for Kent then he will be away don’t know when you make silly statements.

14.) 21 Aug 2020 20:14:12
Deano, no need to worry about me. Worry about SGL being heartbroken when Kent leaves for Leeds.

If they have bid £10M then they were testing the waters. I’m sure they will come back with a higher offer.

I will wish the lad well as I do with everyone that has been lucky enough to wear our shirt, I don’t have any personal issues with the lad, just would like to see more from him but he more often than not disappoints. I wouldn’t look back at his time here as a success.

If you would then fair play, but for me finishing second In this league just means you are the best loser.



16 Aug 2020 21:45:12
Finally people starting to get it.

This team isn’t going to win anything / they simply don’t have the metal or a coach that has the nous to break these teams down. Imagine giving up the opportunity to put some needed pressure on Celtic, wtf!

Too many touches, not slick enough, not moving the opposition around enough.

Kent flatters to deceive. Can somebody please teach him what a give and go is? It’s fckn infinitely more effective that taking it past 3 guys and then being disposed by the fourth.

Biggest problem today was giving Livi something to hold onto. They defended with their lives. But what do you expect when you hardly have a shot in target.

Need to convert all this possession to shots on goal and fast.


1.) 16 Aug 2020 22:04:41
10 points from 12 is not the worst start what a way to support you’re team calling the season over 4 games in!

2.) 16 Aug 2020 23:04:57
Correct Bluebell115, we need to stop trying to walk the ball in, not enough shooting around the box, or quick enough reactions in the box when a chance arrives, we'll be okay, no need to panic.

3.) 16 Aug 2020 23:07:08
Too many 'nice passers'. Need players determined to dig in, many of these players are being let go by the club.

4.) 16 Aug 2020 23:14:50
We are not clinical enough, no clear cut chances or neat organised play, also no plan b or even c. Soon as we hit the final third the play breaks down, we need that killer pass or through ball.

Wonder who the hibs and living player caught it from? because Duffy never got close to anyone to even put a tackle in!

Seen him play against them sand thought he was sensational. Think his big problem is consistency. Maybe that can come from maturity and better coaching.

Give him a 2 minutes r deal and see if he can push on.

Would do the same with Allan Campbell as well.

Seen a 5 minute video of him and he scored all sorts of goals, technical finishes, headers, long range efforts etc.

He is powerful, uses his strength, has good positional awareness and has a good first touch and quite technical - he might be a project but one that is definitely worth investing in.

Had a look at some footage of Alegria and tbh he looks the real deal. Looks like a proper No. 9.

He might be one for the academy but I would expect him to make the step up pretty quickly.

Herewego - I like Arfield but he’s hardly had a glittering career? Falkirk to Burnley that were in the championship. Promoted to the Premier league and then a good squad player that they were happy to let go.

When he is on it, he is on it - but I’ve never seen a player go off the books as much as he does.

One week he is top class, the next he can’t control it with his third touch.

As I said imho there isn’t much between them, Arfield still edges it but Campbell has more potential.

Too many people up here think because people come from unfashionable clubs that they aren’t any good - fck why when there are so many examples that have proven otherwise.

Robertson great at going forward - Pathetic at defending.

Tierney far better at defending and pretty good going forward.

Think Borna is a good balance between the two tbh. If I had to choose between them and I’m not being biased I would actually go 1. Borna, 2. Tierney 3. Robertson.

Basically that comes from the blend between attacking and defence. Think Borna excels in both and the other two a weight slightly more to one over the other.

Yeah why not? Give him a 2 yr deal and see if he can push on from being a decent squad player to a first team pick.

To be perfectly honest there probably isn’t much between him and Arfield atm.

Arfield probably just edges it but Campbell still has some progression in him.

Zingy has looked decent with the exception of the St Mirren game.

Would give him another chance tomorrow, starting alongside Davis and Kamara.

Interesting point Sir Katic, maybe he could be someone to take over in a couple of years. He would obviously need to do a lot of coaching work between now and then. Maybe start with taking on an assistant role next year.
