Watt Dropped, Mulgrew To Start? Thoughts?

Me Dropped? Me Sad.

This is a Barca free blog.

Like Lenny I’m fed hearing about them. There time will come. Off course it won’t be us that deliver it (it will be some detestable f*cker I bet) but I would love it, just love it, if it was us.

Ach, Ive spoke about them. Just ignore what I have said, ok?

Radio Shortbread has just stated that Hibs, Aberdeen and St Johnstone all have the chance to go top of the league today. That the game of the day in the Scottish Cup is Paul Hartley taking his club to Franchise FC.

It’s sunny outside but a bit chilly. What’s not to like, eh?

Off course…a performance like the one against The Marnock’s is not to like. Did we get that out the system with the destruction of in-form St Johnstone? Is the fun bit of watching Celtic this season going to be WE DON’T KNOW WHAT TEAM IS GOING TO SHOW UP?

Kris Commons, imperious against St Johnstone. Laid claim to a hat-trick while the authorities said otherwise. Against St Johnstone he resemble that monkey that makes tea with Jonnie Vegas. Floppy and sitting on it’s ar$e most of the time. Commons is player of the year material already. He can also verge of being subbed at half time if his mind is not there.

has scored 7 goals against Dundee United. That stat is pointless as even if he hadn’t scored against them he would still start.

We have a problem in the midfield. Scott looks unlikely to make it, Samaras and Forrest haven’t made the trip. or Mulgrew (wrongly) will replace and take his place alongside Ledley and Wanyama. That should match the numbers United have in there.

I watched DuNT play the other evening. Once I got over the thought that when Houston and McGlynn shook hands it resembled a set of testicles being trapped in a zip I wasn’t pleased to see Gary Mackay Steven coming on as a sub.

This gives our right hand side a problem. would be a natural fit to sit wider on the right to stop Steven. Forrest also would have been perfect for the right hand side to give the DuNT player something to watch.

I always thought that Lustig is an away full back. Perfect for hard away games. In front of him we could see Watt tasked to stick out wide right more than we would like. Commons may also not get the free role at the tip of a diamond that he loves and we may see a more conservative European 4-3-3 set up.

Could Lennon look to Adam Matthews on the right hand side of midfield and move to a more conventional 4-4-2 with Watt making way and Mulgrew on the left handside?

We need to turn up as despite them being 3rd bottom of the league DuNT are far better than that. Also, did I mention that Hibs, Aberdeen or St Johnstone maybe top of the league by the time we kick off.

I’m going 3-1 Celtic with Hooper first. I’m also going to tickle anytime with the same scoreline. That’s if we turn up. If we don’t a fear a doing as hells bells DuNT are far better than that Killie mob that turned us over.

    As much as I love Mulgrew, the “experiment” can stop now. He’s not worth shoe-horning into the team for his delivery if Commons and Izaguirre are playing. Izaguirre travel ?

    Would like to see Hooper and Watt up front, 4-4-2, they play well together. Like Matthews and Lustig on the right. Lustig turning out to be better than I thought. How good is Ambrose ? (odd slack passes aside..)

    • lordofthewing says:

      Mulgrew should only play at CB or on the left hand side of midfield in a four. That means Commons moving to the right. That doesn’t work imo. A change in midfield means that I think Watt will be dropped. He won’t drop Commons.

      Yes, Izzy travelled.

      I reckon he will play the conserative 4-3-3.

      FF, Lustig, Wilson, Efe, Izzy, Mulgrew, Ledley, Wanyama, Watt, Hooper & Commons, That leaves us a bit light of the bench.

      I worry about Efe. He’s started toooo welllllll, our CB’s are meant to look like coo’s on valuim for a couple of months after they sign…

    without brown it could very likely be like kilmarnock as midfield was a static sieve, I disagree with criticism of commons, he’s a matchwinner compared to james forrest who is a passenger and an imposter

    • lordofthewing says:

      Commons is more often than not a match winner. On his day he is the best attacking midfielder in the league. Off his day he’s about as attractive as a wet dog on your new couch.

      Commons was part of the problem against Kilmarnock. That can’t be disputed.
