In Which The Author Considers The Many Tactical Problems Afflicting Celtic FC in High-Pressure Games & Recommends Positive Action

In light of Celtic's recent run of poor form, characterised by an inability to compete effectively in important games, I thought I'd offer an in-depth analysis of the areas in which I feel they are struggling and offer some solutions.

Problem - Our central defenders can't head a football, deal with a cross or stop passing to opposition strikers in their own penalty area.  This means that we're conceding an astonishing number of needless goals.

Solution - Buy two defenders who don't soil themselves in terror whenever a football comes near them, or even just a couple of big lads who are at least aware that the guys in the shirts that don't have stripes on them are trying to kick the ball into our big net thing.
