It was frustrating watching the goalless draw that the team played out against Dundee last night. A sixth stalemate at home this season, which is far too many considering the dominance we have in this league.
Charly Musonda was an unused substitute, with Leigh Griffiths, Olivier Ntcham and Odsonne Eduoard the players chosen by Brendan Rodgers to come on in the second half to try and get the three points.
Many on Twitter were perplexed as to why our manager decided not to send on the loanee from Chelsea:
Too many uninspiring performances at home this season. Good to see the squad coming back to full strength but I am desperate to watch the creativity of Roberts and Musonda. Boring, lacklustre games like last night are crying out for players like them!

If only we had some creative players to open up tight defences, like Paddy Roberts and Charly Musonda….oh wait ????

Canny wrap my head around Commper and Musonda. Few mill between them to watch from the stands.

Baffling that Musonda and/or Roberts would not be brought on in a game like this.

Musonda has flattered to deceive in his games to date although I do think he’ll be a big player next season ones he gets a preseason with us. The other players in his position deserve the jersey. Compper is a strange one..is he injured?

Sometimes adjustment can take time.
Patience, my friend ????

Heard that comppers meant to be a dud. Musonda is for next season.

I live for the day Musonda starts a league game in his proper position with Roberts on the other wing

The attacking midfielder has been used sparingly since his arrival in January. It’s now been five league games in a row where he has been an unused substitute, and a month since we last saw him in action against Morton in the cup.
There are certainly some questions for Brendan to answer as to why the 21 year old hasn’t been picked recently. It seems strange to take someone on loan and then not use them. Has he failed to impress in training? Is he not fitting into the system? Your guess is as good as mine.
