This 100% .Teams back then were more competitive against us and them this is not the case now, the standard of player in Scotland now is very poor.
Lessons have clearly been learned.It’s really unfortunate for Gerrard and it’s something we need to appreciate. But it doesn’t cover the utterly bizarre tactics and game management since our return this year and inability to learn lessons in this league.
Which opposition have got significantly poorer ?
Not the way we defended at their second goal it was schoolboy football beat by a punt from their keeper.How many points could we have been if it wasn't for some terrible refereeing decisions? Yes we've not played great since the break but the Morelos goal on Wednesday should have seen us get 3 points
I dont believe that to be the case at all. Aberdeen and Motherwell are on track to have the same points total as 3rd and 4th place sides from that era.
No, we have more investment into the squad which has thrown in 3 more wins.Lessons have clearly been learned.
Otherwise we wouldn't be 9 points better off same stage last season.
Awful stats Killie just set up the way they did under Clarke and Gerrard has still not learned how to combat it.If SG realised that matches v Kilmarnock and Aberdeen are not like playing Hamilton, Ross County, St Johnstone, we'd have even more points. Under SG, v Killie and Aberdeen, have taken 20 points from a possible 42 points, that tells you where our problems lie. 22 points lost to Killie and Aberdeen when we have accumulated a deficit of 16 points to Celtic (assuming we win our game in hand).
3 more wins, a cup final appearence and yet more progression in Europe including wins AND remaining unbeaten against Feyenoord and Porto over 4 games.No, we have more investment into the squad which has thrown in 3 more wins.
our tactics are still ultra negative, we still withdraw during play, we still don’t press, we still don’t realise how to match up in midfield. We still can’t make substitutions and influence the game.
