I think long and Egan looked far more composed. 
He's good at the last ditch stuff but I think we would be  best served with long and Egan, Duffy an accident waiting to happen

Loyalty is an admirable quality but I do hope Kenny picks the best 11 to suit how he wants to play. 

I struggle to see how Duffy will make it long term.

Its funny.  When Kenny was about to take over from Mick I was thinking Duffy could be banished here as he cant pass out form the back well and is a disaster in high lines.

Yet Kenny seems to have made it 100% clear that Duffy is his man and will be forever in the team.

I am a believer in playing good football.  I have never beena  fan of the defenders taking the ball off the goalkeepers on the 6 yard line a la Barca 2011.   Think its a suicidal tactic and dont know why copycat coaches are doing it.  I presume its to drsw the opposition in the create room behind them and exploit it but Duffy on the ball just makes me sh*t myself.

Still on the bench after the international break for Celtic I see... If that doesn't scream that a player if off form I don't know what does. 
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.

having a really tough time of it, a lot if it obviously down to the loss of his father... so difficult to get over for anyone. its quite painful to watch because he looks off the pace and his confidence is gone, hopefully big Shane can get through this and back to his best asap

I can't understand why more footballers don't take a leave of absence if they're struggling mentally/emotionally etc?

Losing a parent is a traumatic experience and can take months, years if ever to get over so I don't think anyone would dare judge him if he took the decision to just try and sort his head out for a few weeks.

Leigh Griffiths took that step last season, I'd like to see more footballers doing it tbh.

This. Spot on.

Duffy did an interview on an international duty last week and fronted up that he's struggling. You could see he was only trying to put a brave face on. You need a strong manager to step in here and go look, take some time. Go see your family and then come back.

Any link to that?

His body language against Bulgaria suggested playing that game is the last thing he wanted to do.

He's been playing 2 games a week for the last 2 months. He could do with a bit of R&R.

To be fair some of the mistakes Duffy was making were of his own doing, players were getting past him with relative ease and his overall distribution has been poor.

Saying that, Celtic are no worse with him in the team, even when he's struggling g for form.
