First few years in the PL I don't think they'd finish top 6 or even close, couldn't see them winning the League within 25 years unless it was some kind of Leicester one-off miracle.

Well TBH with the guys we have on here i wouldn't even try to defend NL on here but good performance (eventually) and scoring 5 goals away from home is perfect. His fav formation is 352 and we're at our strongest going forward playing that, he obviously didn't think the players he had at his disposal could pull that off for whatever reasons (not fit/sharp enough etc) but that's old ground so no point covering that just like the silly discussions about how Celtic would do in England when they play in Scotland.

Good to see Polish Paddy get a goal. Will do his confidence the world of good

Yes Tonto, he looks a bit raw but eager as hell and think he'll get better. Fingers crossed, LG needs to know and he will now that if he doesn't get the finger out he will find himself 4th striker and getting the odd substitute appearance and cup game.

Klimala has looked a bit "frightened" at times. Almost like Brattbak was at Celtic. Probably should have had six goals already this season. Hoping he takes off from here.

Poor enough performance tonight...I suppose it's still 3pts in the bag but far from convincing. Definitely didn't start with our strongest team but we got away with it. A win on Sat and Hibs to turn over Sevco on Sunday and things will turn for the better.

Edouard seems to be well off form and that is a worry.

Eddies first touch was a mile away. Klimala I just dont see as an answer to anything, LG if he would sort himself out is still a  etter option. On the plus side Big Shane strolled about like he owned the place.

A lot of strong rumours about James McClean coming.

Don't know about whether he will benefit the team in terms of quality but his heart and attitude will give us lots in such a pivotal season. Would love to see him in the hoops.

I get what you're saying but skill wise he's not better than what we have and would only be an impact sub tbh

McClean wouldn't be a natural wing back but I think he'll offer us a lot more there than Taylor does right now or Forrest as a left wing back.

If the figures are low, I'd make this happen. In a season like this you need leaders and McClean is one.

I agree Angelo.

He'd bring a bit of bite on the left side and he'd put a shift in for sure.

Effort over talent and all that!
