I cannot believe the referee has given Gallagher a yellow card for that, unreal.

 

As for the goal, Gillespie's had a mare there.

Agree on both counts

I admire the way we are trying to play but we are incredibly naive at times, leaving ourselves wide open at the back. 

Gillespie poor so far, he had a few moments at Livi too despite pulling off some cracking saves.

You know it's bad when even Andy Walker thinks it's bad.

I suspect we might have to get used to that. Feels like we're going for more of the "you score one, we'll score two" approach this year.

Donnolly goes from hero to villain in 30 seconds, and Gillespie makes a rip roaring cunt of a poor free kick.  Apart from that, we have been good. Few good balls across the box and pressing nicely at times

What's wrong with that tactic, Barcelona and Real Madrid have used it for years :nod:

At least we look like a football team. Some good passing move but Siedorf looks a bit light weight and I think Hylton neeeds to relax a wee bit. He seems a bit tense.

Makes for more entertaining games which is good as long as we win our fair share

They are just too flipping good. We’ve done well to go almost 6 years without losing heavily to them at Fir Park.

Onto Hearts on Friday night, another big test awaits.

We've made it far too easy for them,our shape when we don't have possession has been embarrassing at times.

Shape is going to take a bit of time to tighten up. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the Betfred instead of pre-season means we set up to beat lower league teams where shape is less of an issue (because we are better). There are a a number of players in the team who haven't played against a team as good as Livi, never mind Celtic, that will need to get up to speed quickly.
