    Hope Rays watching PSG

    That's what can be achieved playing 3 attackers.
    Admittedly their front 3 might be a tad better than ours.
    A joy to watch first half.
    Did anybody notice that Broon almost got close enough to tackle somebody.
    Great to watch them getting thouroughly horsed.
    No fair cause they've got more money than us

    Loving watching this.

    Team with 10 times the money winning. Who’d have thought it.

    4-3-3 high press. Off the ball movement to drop deep and rotate, tug at defensive shape and pull players around is the way to go for me.

    A front three of:

    McMullan - N’Koyi - Keatings/McDonald

    Midfield 3 of:

    Stanton - Fyvie - Briels

    And get the full backs up the f’ing wings. If one goes, the other stays and tucks in to make a back three to protect against counters.

    Off the ball movement and overloads.

    But they probably didn’t teach that at Largs.

    That buffoon Sutton mentioned the financial gulf between them.
    Apparently it doesn't exist when Celtic play Hamilton etc.

    A parody of themselves. I love watching them get horsed at home in Europe. Get it round ye.

    Brendan Rogers now 2 wins in 13 champs league games. Overhyped beyond belief.

    Thought the defensive mid was the man to make up the back 3? Get both full backs up n doon the wing!

    I hope he is playing football manager he really needs to brush up on his tactics.

    And if he tries to emulate that kind of passing - 2 passes in ball bounces off of frasers pus into the path of hippo and we are one doon

    Can do it either way. Deep lying mid playing as a half back but I prefer them also to get up the pitch to be a central option. When they go into opposition half they can support from deep to move ball from left to right or vice versa. I think it depends on how mobile your CBs are. If they are pacey enough they can split wide and allow deep CM to drop into middle.

    Either way, options the team with the biggest budget in the league should be utilising.

    Yep. There's a lot of comparisons to be drawn between our team and one that cost about £600M to put together.
