Here at 67 Hail Hail, we like to offer a wide range of different match reaction.
Whether it’s our own opinion pieces or gathering consensus from social media or even what the pundits are saying, we always have plenty to publish.
We also regularly do player rating features, giving fans an idea of how individuals performed against an opposition outfit.
However, it’s almost pointless commenting on individuals in the team right now, given the collective effort simply isn’t good enough.
Yes, we know Scott Brown is rapidly looking like a lost cause.
We know the defending of Kristoffer Ajer and Christopher Jullien wasn’t good enough tonight.
We know Olivier Ntcham was anonymous as ever.
Ultimately though, nobody in the team is really catching the eye or linking up effectively enough with teammates to earn praise.
The closest we can get tonight is admire Odsonne Edouard’s wonderful opening goal. But then we have to get our head around his horror miss in the second half.
You wouldn’t know it from the last week, but I actually hate being negative about Celtic. I love the club. I love most of these players. I love the manager.
However, we have to call it as we see it and when it all goes horribly wrong, we can only reflect that.
This isn’t a ‘Lennon Out’ article or a ‘Sell Ajer’ article. That kind of thing is for you to make your own mind up on.
It’s simply to say that something has gone horribly wrong at Celtic over the summer and we need some sort of change to reset, regroup and find a new way forward.
That may not involve a change of manager. For many it should, for others, it shouldn’t. A lot has been said about that this week. Too much, for some.
It seems obvious to me this current project is not turning around, or turning so slowly it makes the Titanic look spry.
I keep waiting on Lennon proving me wrong. I keep waiting on ‘the moment’ that ignites our season.
I’ve been waiting a while now.
Whatever the answer is, Celtic fans deserve better than this. We’re all hurting. None of this is nice.
We limp on to Ross County on Sunday, anxiously awaiting what we’ll see from Celtic next.
