Back to football matters tomorrow after the ‘Winter crisis’. A tough game against Dundee Utd is in store at Celtic Park as the league leaders go for another win on the spin. Celtic v Utd games at Celtic park usually go one of two ways. Either Celtic struggle and it’s a tight game or Celtic thump them, here’s hoping it’s the later tomorrow.
As per usual we have some players out for this game however things are starting to clear up an I would expect Thomas Rogne to partner Kelvin Wilson in the centre of defence with Izzy at left back and Adam Mathews at right back. I also suspect that if Hooper is fir the manager will go for Samaras, Stokes and Hooper up front which once again presents Neil Lennon with the one problem of how to balance the midfield.
This is a bit of a problem due to the fact that Lenny will not leave Scott Brown out and with Sammy playing restricts Lennon’s choices.
I’ve set out two teams and basic formations below. Number one is the team I think Lenny will go with playing 4-4-2 and number two is the team I would prefer playing 4-3-3. I’ll wager that I get none of them right.
