I can see both sides of the argument but not every side is in our position. Stendel clearly not going to rest players against anyone though so it doesn’t really matter. 

yep

let every team in the league just play reserves against Celtic then and roll over


What other teams do isn’t my concern tbh.

So all this about Pereira gifting the first goal is shite then. It didn't matter at all.

Playing Celtic on a Wednesday night, virtually no chance of winning, wide pitch, two of the most important games in recent history coming up...of course you rest a couple of important players. A weakened team against Hamilton will give them a lift and make it more difficult than it should be for us. We need to go with a solid 4-4-2 today, no Clare running up and down trying to defend as well as get forward, one job for one player.  Could do a lot worse than playing Halkett upfront (as an ex-forward) if Boyce is out. Wouldn't do any worse than Uche or Washington when it comes to getting the ball in the net.

All the people saying Celtic game didn't matter as we were always going to lose it.

 

Why care if the keeper made a mistake if keeping it 0-0 wasn't important.

I don’t remember anyone here saying pre match V. Celtic we should rest Boyce or any players as a matter of fact?

 

Happy to be corrected with a screenshot?

 

To then say now, with hindsight, they should have been rested is just weak.

Got you now. Was a pivotal point in the game as was the timing if the second. We had a decent first half but again just couldn’t keep that going for the whole game, which is becoming a pattern tbh. Quite worrying.

There were people saying it. Not me. Was on the Falkirk thread as well as the Celtic one.

Yes

 

Showing we should have played our strongest team and we did have a chance of the result.

If we'd started Uche and Washington instead of Boyce and Naismith on Wednesday, would that really have been tantamount to trying to lose deliberately? No, it would have been sensible squad rotation, given the game today and the amount of minutes Boyce and Naismith have played in a short space of time.


Far too sensible but you’re wasting your time.

I’m in two minds. I’d probably say we should have rested guys for the Falkirk games if necessary. The only reason I’m in two minds is Naismith has seemed a bit off form lately. Might’ve kept him fresh for today bit certainly wouldn’t have made wholesale changes.

Is Naismith out too?

 

No, but his form had dipped before Wednesday and, for an injury-prone player, he's played a lot of minutes in a short space of time. I'd have rested him and kept him fresh for today.

I don’t see the problem in it.  You sometimes see teams in the relegation zone in the EPL rest players when they play the top teams then bring them back in for a more winnable and important game against a fellow struggler.  Makes sense and it’s why you have a squad.

It is a fair question.

 

I suspect Boyce wants to play every game and Naismith now fully fit wants to get his sharpness back.

 

But I think Stendel went in to win game. Looking at the game and the reaction including from Celtic fans we had a chance.

If we can’t beat Hamilton at Tynecastle because we’re missing one player - just relegate us. Or wind us up completely.

I don’t particularly care about the shit storm in here or the disapproval of the 200 supporters who went to Celtic.

 

This is about staying in the division and tough decisions need to be made.

Put it this way.
 

If today was a cup final absolutely no one would have a problem with Stendel resting 2-3 of our best players on Wednesday.

 

Today is our cup final. Losing is unthinkable.

Called it on Wednesday night ? Playing him and Naismith there with these two games coming up was a horrendous decision. 

Both them looked jaded against Killie and Falkirk.

He did go to win the game. Whether we had a chance or not is more down to playing with the same intensity for 90 minutes rather than 45. This seems a bit beyond us at the moment.

Imagine we had rested players and caught celtic on a rare off day and the game was there to be won but we just lacked a wee bit quality.

Uche should be no where near our first team even with Boyce out. He’ll spend the entire game wrestling with the defenders without once looking at the ball. He doesn’t link play, has a terrible touch and couldn’t hit a coo on the erse with a banjo. Get Washy playing along side Walker/Naisy/Mosh.

 

I would love Uche to prove me wrong but sadly I just don’t think he is capable of doing so. If picked he along with ten others will get full encouragement to get what will be an absolutely crucial three points.

 
HHGH

 

I agree about Uche but Washington is not far off being just as bad. He runs about a lot but offers no real goal threat.

Indeed. Boyce came here to play football not be rested in games at Celtic Park. How to annoy your new striker 101...These people calling for him to be rested are taking the computer game approach rather than the human approach.

With respect . 

Boyce and Naisy are essential to our survival hopes . They've both be basically playing Sat Wed since the Winter break . Both looked  off the pace in the Killie and Falkirk games . 

Naisy has a history of injuries and we're still flogging him till he goes again . 

These two games coming up are absolutely massive , the Celtic game was always a zero chance to any realist . 

All the top clubs in England rotate at the busy time of year and pick and choose their battles .

We should have played the percentages because make no mistake this has handed a massive boost to Hamilton and put us on the back foot . 

I called it on Wednesday before the game tbf .
