Beautiful Sunday! Five follow follow pain and suffering threads to enjoy at your earliest convenience

FIVE THREADS on Follow Follow for you to enjoy. Here’s the headline and the opening message, nip in and check the pain and suffering…

1. Mentally weak both in the dugout and on the park

We do not have it. Nowhere near it.

Manager – Quite simply, his inability to make changes continues to hinder us when it comes to the crunch. Why on earth he didn’t go for it at 2-2 with them down to 10 men is utterly incomprehensible to me. Rodgers made TWO changes before Murty even began to react. Throwing Cummings on at 2-3 and then the clincher – Alves at centre forward – reinforces the belief that he simply does possess the mentality to manage the club to success long term. Rodgers schooled him today and that’s what hurts the most. This was Murty’s chance to bury that mob today. Man advantage, Cummings on the bench – what the hell was he waiting for ?

GK – Would need to see the first one again but that’s yet another shot from distance that Wes doesn’t stop. Didn’t look commanding at all from cross balls but had one great save first half.

Defence – A shambles. A mess. A car crash. Call it what you want, it wasn’t pretty. That central defence needs fixed this summer. That has to be priority number one. All three goals were diabolical to lose.

Midfield – Not good enough today. Goss looked off the pace, Doc did well when it came to tackling and pressing but our passing was not good enough, especially against 10 men. We looked vastly outnumbered in there for large spells. Standing off them didn’t help.

Attack – Both Murphy and Candeias had good games IMO. Windass started brightly and fell away and was non existent well before the end. Alfredo continues to do all the difficult stuff brilliantly and the easy stuff horrendously. Those misses today were inexcusable.

Absolutely pig sick. We threw that game away both on and off the park. Nowhere near good enough.

2. Unacceptable

thats all I am going to say

3. They are so much fitter than us…why??

How many games more have they played than us 8 or 9 maybe, as gut wrenching as this was today, them being fitter is totally unacceptable.

4. Morelos missed chances against the *****.

5. Celtic fans marching down broomloan road

Did anyone see the group of about 30 Celtic fans dressed in black with balaclavas on that came down Broomloan road past the Esso petrol station?

Right in amongst the bears at 11:10

IRA chants the lot. 4 bears crossed the road and offered them out but the tims sh*t it.

Police did nothing other than open the segregation to let them through to the rest of their fans.
