    I'd have bitten your hand off for a point before the game so to get that is a positive. Having observed the level of performance Celtic gave it's a negative to have dropped 2 points.
    Thats my take on it

    Iíd take Gallagher as a back up to Hanlon and Porteous. I donít think heís a better player though.

    Allan Campbell would be a great addition, but Iím pretty sure weíve missed the boat there.
    Difficult to argue that Gallacher an excellent performer for the national team isn't better than the u21 player in that position.

    He isnít doing it week in week out though. Would you take Shankland over Nisbet based on that logic? I certainly wouldnít.

    Shankland isn't an excellent performer at national level.

    Heís in the squad ahead of Nisbet though, just like Gallagher with Porteous. Thatís not a way to measure someoneís ability. Watching Gallagher weekly and especially at home to Celtic, and watching our defensive unit week in week out, including for 90% of yesterdayís game, then I wouldnít be in a rush to swap him over.

    Another positive for me is that I think we've found a formation that suits us.

    Magennis to come into side and Doidge an option from the bench as well.

    No danger Doidge should be benched.

    Why? We had a better shape yesterday even if our quality on the ball was poor. Doidge, on this seasons form, certainly isnít undroppable.

    Yet others were accusing Hibs of being too timid going forward, something Doidge can't be accused of.

    I agree with that. Doidge looks to me that he is playing injured or suffering from a bit of a lack of confidence recently. It gives us more options having one up top given how short we are on strikers.

    I hope we go with the same again on Tuesday, even if Doidge is available.

    Murphy and Boyle arenít going to spend nearly as much time running back the way so itíll be more 433 than 451. Even allowing for that, Boyle won the penalty, Murphy got a goal and an assist and Nisbet scored. Not a bad return from them.

    Just mentioned him as a steady centre half that has a nasty streak. I think we should be playing 3 at the back and thereís a space for someone like him alongside Hanlon and Porto.

    Weíre too nice.

    Youíve got to remember that weíve just watched Gallagher play the middle of a three that included a Manchester Utd player and an Arsenal player. If he came to us heíd be playing between Porteous and Hanlon. Ryan would still be as rash and raw and Paul would still have the ability to sclaff clearances straight to an opponent.

    Gallagher wouldnít revolutionise our defence.

    Far better balance than 4-4-2. Unfortunately someone is going to have to miss out, but when Celtic can drop Edouard, Rangers Morelos, Aberdeen Cosgrove then Iíve no doubt we should be able to drop Doidge if it means we are better balanced.
