Shocking goal to concede,how many times are we going to get punished by our full backs standing off letting the cross come in.

 

Think that’s down to managers tactics unfortunately………..

Slattery beaten way too easily by Mulgrew and O' Donnell loses his man at the back post. Bad, bad goal. But we have had a couple of decent chances and Ojala maybe bit unlucky to have his "goal" chopped off. Utd been ok but not great, so hopefully can turn it around 2nd half

Watching grimshaw manufacture ways to pass the ball backwards is getting old.

Disappointed in the disallowed goal, you see players climbing like that all the time.

Overall we've been poor and don't have any cohesion, but we're still in the game at least. Hopefully we can make some adjustments at half time, as we're not going to create much against them the way we are set up.

I thought we started brightly enough, first 15 minutes we were enjoying most of the possession and Goss was unfortunate not to score after 50 seconds. Dundee United then went on to dominate the possession without really doing anything then we concede a poor goal like that. I know it was Celtic but the winger put in cross after cross against McGinley last week, it was hugely frustrating to see Mulgrew easily outpace him and pick his man out. I would like to see Ojala's ruled out goal again as Clancy was lenient earlier in the game when United had a chance in our box with a similar challenge.

Midfield is all wrong. Slattery concedes too many fouls and is a certain yellow every game. Goss got on the end of a ball in for his early chance but done nowt since and Grimmy? He's contributed zilch as well and looks like a rabbit caught on the headlights most of the time. Need to get O'Hara on pronto and see if he can make a difference

It was Slattery who was beaten by mulgrew.

It was a good cross that took out the keeper, and the attacker is always going to have the advantage running onto that ball, the criminal part was Slattery getting beaten so easily after giving away the dumb foul that led up to the goal.

Plenty of possession but unable to do much with it,lots of poor corners,crosses and final ball,UTD have been poor and i think they will play better in the second half so tough 45 coming up.

It's basic stuff you get taught as a boy,stop the cross and stop the goal but we never have any interest in closing down the ball out wide.

Because that is what the manager has told his defenders to do, pretty much since the day he arrived at the club.

Think that was our "not going to be our day" moment.

And now we have a penalty, which will probably just prove it.
