Anyone have ideas for slight changes for the team against Thistle in the cup on Tuesday?

"I am not the type of coach who looks to make changes just for the sake of it. If we have the need to make changes, then we will make changes. The team is ready to play every four days - we have four days to recover and then another four days. We are not concerned about it, but, for example, we need to see what is going on with Lee Wallace, and which players can be options for us on Tuesday. "

This suggests it'll be the same on Tuesday which would be a worry. Would've liked to see Rossiter or Pena get a start but going by this, it looks like it'll be John for Wallace.

Same team I reckon as you say john for Wallace but on Friday showing I'd rather have Hodson or beerman

it's beyond me that rossiter doesn't get a game - he's one of the most technical players we have and a proper disciplined defensive mid who wld screen our back 4 and give them cover

the OF game is crying out for a change in formation i'd go 4-5-1 drop windass for rossiter play miller and candeillas wide of a middle 3 suppporting morelos

I'd agree I'd rather swap Rossiter for Windass than Rossiter for Miller.

Windass shows glimpses in games. But those glimpses are just that, Glimpses! His ability to impact a game lasts for about twenty minutes at most.

Miller is one of the few who know what this game is about and can score against them. Although he featured in a few of those "performances" last season against the other side, he certainly wasn't the only player on the pitch.

We can't have passengers in this game. That goes for Rossiter or Pena also, if they are injured or not up to speed.

Windass would be a passenger for about 90% of the time he's on the field.

I would start with morelos and herrera upfront, play the same midfield but swap windass for beerman and the back line where to start tav on right welsh boy left and alves in middle and find a right big strong bugger from the pub who can knock lumps outta everyone and manage to clear the line also. And if anyone knows how to re animate davie cooper then get on with it.

Rossiter is a player I'd agree. But Jack has been one of the most consistent performer this season. He does a lot more than he gets credit for. For example, he pick pocketed the Partick Thisle player to put Morelos in for the opener on Friday.

He's barely had a mention for that goal (albeit it was a fantastic finish) . He's rarely second best to second balls or 50/ 50's. Cracking signing on a free agent. Rossiter definitely does not get in the team before him I'm afraid.

Also, remember he last time we played two CDM's in the same team? Progres happened.

I can't even lie and say I'm optimistic in any shape or form for Saturday. But I'll tell you I'm happy it's Jack opposing Brown on Saturday and not your Halliday's etc.

The result on Friday was not good enough but I feel the players need to take responsibility for that one, Pedro's tactics were fine I think, not much he can do that our players were not brave enough to hold a strong wall. We can't seem to finish teams off when we have our strongest periods of play. I think it's a mentality issue and it needs to be fixed quickly.

thorn76 you want to see pena start!? Based on what? Have you seen something I haven't?

17 Sep 2017 19:40:12
Yes I want to see Pena start. Against Thistle in a league cup quarter final. Not necessarily at the weekend.

The goal he scored against Dundee at Ibrox was well taken.

Sure don't need to point out the obvious but It's also coming up for late September and our most expensive player hasn't started once.

17 Sep 2017 23:14:06
I'd be putting Rossiter and Pena in from the start for Tue game. both are needing as many minutes as possible.

Line up I'd go with for old firm game:

Tav Fabio Bruno John
Rossiter Jack
Candias Dorrans Miller

Clearly the vast majority of fans on here don't know how pesto wants to play. Tab and Cardozo are effective on the right. When tav bombs up, cardoso and candias cover. Who was covering when John was doing the same? Certainly not windass and definitely not alves what about jack, nope. Only person you seen track back was dorrans. Even the buffalo tracked back. Never a good sign. I would try a 4 231 stick hodson in left back. And use tab to exploit the right. Give John a game over windass and Pena over jack. For Celtic I would go for pure defence otherwise we will get pumped

{Ed033's Note - Is your sauce telling you about a pesto rumour?
