You cant drop Laidlaw as he has not done anything wrong. Rocky has to be patient and take his chance when it next comes around.
That's fine if Rocky was dropped in the first place for making mistakes. I don't think he was - he made one but ordinarily that would not have seen him dropped. He was taken out in prep for a game he was missing for religious reasons and so I think we could apply the same argument that Rocky had done nothing to be dropped in the first place.
Play the best team and that includes Rocky as keeper.
Laidlaw. Its a pity for Rocky because he wasn't dropped as such, but Laidlaw has performed well since he came in and IMO it would be daft to drop a keeper who is clearly in good form to bring back a keeper who was far from convincing in his last game.
Laidlaw played in the league cup defeat last season to queen of the south
True but he's played about 20 league games and is undefeated. Granted they were mostly championship games but he looked comfortable and undaunted at an intimidating venue at Parkhead last week plus his debut v a decent European team in Brondby where he looked totally unphased. I like him a lot.
For some reason Rocky wasnít up to his best I thought before he had to take a break that wíend. Since then Laidlaw has been very good and defence for me looks confident with him as well. Not saying they arenít with rocky but it doesnít seem to have bothered them.
He should stay on until he himself looks shaky or letís in a stupid goal.
I think on his day Rocky is the better keeper, Laidlaw has done well recently though. I think Marciano only missed the Celtic game because of religious reasons so I feel it would be bit harsh to drop him because of that. Difficult choice, nice to have 2 good keepers though.
