I honestly think Gordon by not been on pitch tonight has just nailed himself as #1. With no doubt.
I also think with us 1nil down to the best side in club football. Dembele should not b takn the pen, think captain or Senior man like lustig should of taking it.
Scott Sinclair, build a team around that lad what a talent that shUn out it that performance.
Gamboa I know it was his debut but you can see the defencive rust on him

Also when you play 5 at the back and 2 holdING mids we were never going to keep ball and we are always inviting them on to us. If you do not wan best strike force to score then starve them. Don't let keeper just lash ball up pitch and invite them on.

Totaly agree with you, the weakest part of Barcelona is their defence, by sitting back and surrendering the midfield is suicide, did Barcelona not get beat 7-0, by Bayern the other year, or am I getting mixed up.

Captain Hindsight.

100% guarantee if Lustig or brown take and miss that penalty, you're on here saying it should be attacking player, or Moussa as his confidence would be sky high.

He took it- he'd 2 from 2- and he missed. It happens. It'll happen again.

Don't give me captain hindsight shit. You could tell by his game tonight he wasn't in it. if a senior player toik it and miss it they can take the flax. But he's 20 and still trying to settle, on a high from scoring a hat trick against the huns and now he's sitting their after missing a big one. Yes if he scored he be superman, burst he missed at 1nil so do one with your if he, he didn't and now at twenty and still settling he has to deal with it. You try getting him in to a game for this weekend.

You're talking utter gash. Go have a word with yourself - your entire point is based in hindsight. If it wasn't, it'd have been up before 7:45 tonight.

What a load off mince lol.

The guy who scored a hatrick at the weekend was always the logical choice to take it and the poeticpatient is spot on you would moan if broony missed or lustig.

The miss imo is completely irrelevant and we got shown up by a perfectly good team. We were all full of beans after Saturday about how great we are and that's true in the domestic front but in Europe we and Scottish football are miles behind.

And i am puzzled at the short term memories of some fans that have slated CG for long enough but now want him back in the team after the gk has played 3 games, kinda hypocritical but hay ho.
And i'm just waiting for tierney to start getting it which seems to be happening already.

The CL really brings out the worst in some fans and some need a reality check.

We haven't got players with enough ability to put Barcelona under pressure in their defence. In the first half we did get a couple breakaways that showed weaknesses .
I must say I counted 6 Celtic players in the Barcelona half once in first half .
We had to have a defensive mid-field covering our back line . We didn't do that well enough as Barcelona could run and slip the ball through our midfield and defence, leaving different players in our team not knowing what to do.
Let's hope we have learned, get some attacks going and protect our defence .

{Ed007's Note - Iniesta coming on at half-time changed the game. I didn't think our first half performance was that bad, Chris but we just couldn't touch them in that second half.}

You seem to be missing the point I'm trying to get across at 1nil and with a pen, a very important one to add, if it's converted puts all the pressure on Barcelona and alleviates ours. A senior man taking and missing yes if he misses can and will get abuse but can handle it. At twenty that was a pressure pen and he fluffed it, hope for our sake it doesn't get to him. I'm not for one min saying if he scored we win game but am saying it would be different game with us having more confidence on the ball
Ye ed iniesra bossed game when he came on.
Do you think ratikic knee into browns are was a reflection upon the game. We were breaking they still had good numbers in defence but chose to take one for the team, something we lacked that your not even getting go, it some up there whole ethic disrupt your play, keep our play goingames and never Chang our style, and it is some style.

I did get your point- I just thought (and continue to think) it's nonsense.

I got your point too we missed a pen and got skelped 7-0.
Your also a CG fan which is unusual but everyone is entitled and all that.

I think bhoys the harsh reality is Barcelona had another gear in them and we are out of our depth playing the elite.

we weren't playing the elite - we were playing the elite of the elite

we are thinking back to that brilliant night, at 1-0 up, watt broke free and we were 2-0 up against them. and held on at 2-1

what we should be contemplating is the last time we were there it was 6-1, we have improved greatly - but so have they!

Brilliant point Digi, and in addition:

The fact they are the elite of the elite is why that 2-1 result was spoke of (and continues to thought of) in such high regard.
