We all know Ange Postecoglou has his way of playing football.
It is one way. Attack.
That’s it. Nothing else will do. And we have seen it work.
We have also seen it fail. And in Europe when it fails, it fails spectacularly because Celtic get caught on the hop time and time again on the counter attack.
Speaking on Clyde 1 Superscoreboard, Hugh Keevins says Ange MUST look at tweaking his philosophy because he doesn’t have the necessary players to carry it out, “The negative stats are beginning to engulf Ange Postecoglou. The three league games, away from home, all lost.
“Now come Aberdeen who haven’t won in the last eight, but will know that they get Celtic at a vulnerable time.
“The European stats don’t add up. Eight goals lost in two games, Celtic, they’re always involved in fascinating football matches, that they don’t win!
“They go to Real Betis and then lose four goals in a matter of 20 minutes.
“Four nil defeat from Bayer Leverkusen. I am certain that Celtic put up a good show for parts of that game.
“However, it comes back to the same thing. The defensive lapses go back to the Alkmaar game. Joe Hart inexplicably losing a goal and the way he did. Carl Starfelt inexplicably losing a goal the way he did.
“David Turnbull, what was going through his mind when he fell over and a goal resulted from his mistake?
“There’s a great debate about does he need to tweak his philosophy, not abandon his philosophy, but tweak it.
“And I’m very much afraid that yes he does because he is playing a style of football that he does not have the type of player to perform,
“And you can’t be stubborn. If you’re consistently not winning European ties or away matches in the league, something’s wrong, you have to address it.”
