When you think about it the Celtic team that won in Lisbon, had maybe two world class players in Jimmy Johnstone and Bobby Murdoch, and then 4 international class players and then the rest were good honest journeyman guys that you could rely on to do their job, but they had a manager, that they believed in, that they respected and they would follow his instructions, that inter Milan team were full of the Neymars and the Messis of the time, but Celtic out psyched them, out thought them and out played them.

PSG are nowhere as good as Inter were, and Celtic are nowhere as good as the Lisbon guys, but the thing is, if PSG play to their maximum and Celtic play to their best and throw away their inhibitions, PSG are there for the taking, pride comes before a fall, and they are so full of themselves, they are going to fall a long way.


1.) 20 Nov 2017 09:07:01
Sorry aindoh but if psg play in 3rd or 4th gear they will still beat us comfortably. If they are at their best then it'll be damage limitation for us. We need to play out of our skin and hope they don't turn up to get anything.
I think it's crazy to try and compare this match to our finest hour. This psg team are full of super talented footballers whereas that inter team were full of defensive minded footballers with the mindset of winning every game 1-0. 2 completely different teams.
Also it's wrong to compare both eras matches as there is a far greater gap between Celtic and psg now than Celtic and inter in 67.

2.) 20 Nov 2017 17:11:47
If PSG play to their best we’ve got no chance aindoh. Unfortunate but true.

3.) 20 Nov 2017 18:27:51
Aindoh you are talking about a team that won THE most coveted club trophy in world football.
Threfore I would suggest they were ALL world class, and for me the teams of yesteryear have no chance against the super teams of now, football has changed dramatically.

4.) 20 Nov 2017 19:14:56
Rayman although football has changed imo it's fitness and conditioning that's different . give that lions the access to the facilities and sports science of today and their class and ability would tell in any league or competition.

5.) 21 Nov 2017 13:02:14
aindoh you are dreaming.
We are so far behind them it almost doesn't matter how good we play in a one off game and how badly they play, we'll still lose on Wednesday. For us to get anything from the game will need something close to a miracle, and yes miracles can happen but they are few and far between that's why they're called miracles! lol HH.

6.) 21 Nov 2017 21:22:31
it wasn't naymar
it wasn't Mbop
it wasn't cavani
it wasn't di maria (wasn't playing)
it wasn't ben arfa
it wasn't draxler
it wasn't alves
it wasn't silva

I tuned in knowing all these players.

they had no week links anywhere, every position has practically the best player they can afford (which is anyone)

I was blown away by Rabiot and I had no clue who he was.

I am seriously not up on European football but even this "unknown" was world class.

I agree heart etc can win games, but these guys at half speed could win the cl.

7.) 21 Nov 2017 23:05:02
Can't see anything other than 90 mins of torture the moro night, can't say I enjoy watching us against those super rich multi billionaire funded clubs. Looking forward to a bit of a breather in the Europa and hopefully a wee run. On the upside lads when sitting through the torture the moro night just think that's how Sevconians feel when they play us.

8.) 22 Nov 2017 00:36:06
When I was a young lad my old man used to get a cabbie called Jim to drive myself and my brothers home to my mums some Sundays. Great auld boy, he talked endlessly about celtic and he had an old clapped out cavalier that other drivers marveled at the miles he got out of it. anyway he said there was lads at that time that turned down professional football contracts for danger money down the pitts.
That one statement says it all. No matter how good our team could of been in the last 10/ 15 years if players stayed, the point is that the lisbon team with today's money would of been dismantled and our history wouldn't exist. Psg are pretty much one of those game console/ current times dream teams. Keep the score down. Play negative and go toe to toe with anderlecht when the time comes.

9.) 22 Nov 2017 14:10:24
Self delusion is sometimes a good thing. Why would rangers fans stick to it so passionately?

I am looking to us to put up a better show like they did against Bayern. That is all we can ask.

If they fire on all cylinders and we freeze it will be a pummelling.

If we step up and fight and play, we will still lose but by feck I will be proud. This mob will win it imo.

Get stuck in Celtic and believe in your ability.

We do.

10.) 24 Nov 2017 09:39:33
PSG are nowhere near Inter? Are you having a laugh? PSG would destroy Inter.

The Green tinted specs are strong in this one. :)

Nostalgia can be guilty of creating false realities. That teams back in the distant past would beat the very best now. They wouldn't.

Even with fitness levels they couldn't compete. Teams like Barca, PSG and a few others would run any of the great teams of the past ragged.

I heard Bailly was also away too. We will have cut a fair bit off the wage bill with people leaving this Summer.

5.) 09 Jul 2017 19:02:48
Ha was kinda expecting that.



08 Jun 2017 16:06:10
I don't expect Brendan, to bring more than two players in, if we hold onto Dembelle, the team is playing well and is probably only lacking a truly creative midfielder, I would like him to give Ajer and Simuovic a try as a centre back pairing, if Hayes does come in I think he might surprise a lot of people with what he brings to the team, if the team from last season isn't disturbed too much.

I think it can make a real impression in the CL, I think what makes a great team is consistency of selection, players playing together, gelling, getting to know how each other plays, under Ronnie the team was chopped and changed, because squad rotation was the buzz word, and he was a believer, and so were a lot on this site, we can all reel of the Lisbon lions not because they played one game but because the majority played regularly, and the counter argument is that the modern game is faster and more physical, and you need rotation, but modern footballers are also faster and more fitter.

just look at the number of players Leicester city used last year, what I am trying to say is that we have the basis of a very good European team here, but we just need a bit more guile in midfield, but aye there the rub, where do you find it.


1.) 08 Jun 2017 17:27:51
At the moment I'd rather see Jozo and Dedrick as our CH partnership unless we bring an other CH with proven ability. I don't think Ajer is ready for and every game campaign yet. I would though like to see him get a few games under his belt.

2.) 08 Jun 2017 18:49:19
Id be quite happy with 2 maybe 3 signings of as good a quality as we can attract to scottish football. One of those signings for me must be wee paddy roberts providing man city and roberts himself are willing to make it happen. Just as important as new signings, we must try our very best to keep our main assets ie wee tierney, dembele, armstrong etc. If we can do that then i think most fans would be over the moon.

3.) 08 Jun 2017 18:50:55
I'd definitely like to see more than 2 coming in aindoh. We need a quality defender, a quality midfielder and another couple who will improve our squad rather than first team. Then the cherry on top wee Paddy!

4.) 08 Jun 2017 21:23:48
I think it will be 3-4 signings with 2 top notch.

5.) 09 Jun 2017 07:20:21
reckon a cpl of quality players will be brought in, definitely need a RW (PADDY HOPEFULLY) . and a playmaker, need to shift a few players also, with commons and efe away that's a good chunk of change saved on wages so far.

6.) 09 Jun 2017 08:32:10
Ed is there any truth to the rumour about leicster wanting roberts if mahrez goes?, lot of talk about it from down there apparently, meant to add it to previous post.

just noticed ACs interest in Costa - ends the Moussa rumour?

9.) 09 Jun 2017 18:39:15
Read it was a loan the were after. Still good news though as they wouldn't be sniffing about till Christmas.

10.) 09 Jun 2017 21:44:03
Moussa is staying put. if anyone is going its Armstrong.

11.) 10 Jun 2017 12:05:26
We're not lacking a creative midfielder. If Celtic can get rogic 100% fit then we will have 1 of the most creative midfielders in Europe! I honestly think that on his day, that bhoy could tear anyone to shreds.



14 May 2017 15:25:20
It is madness to think about selling Dembelle until it becomes a necessity, when he makes his full french debut, his value will skyrocket, it is also madness to talk about downgrading Griffith's in the pecking order for someone who is very much unproven as is the case of Solanke, probably won't come north of the border but if he does, hope it isn't another case of what happened with Guidetti.


1.) 14 May 2017 17:33:17
It's not madness, the whole point is developing the squad. Rodgers isn't a massive fan on Griffiths so he has to work for his place. I agree he's a very important player for us but if a better striker comes in it's only correct to replace him. I'm sure it would be the same case for solanke.

2.) 14 May 2017 20:01:11
Unless we get an offer in excess of £30m (which I can't see) then I would think the board would look at the bigger picture with what we could earn for CL qualification. I TOTALLY get the 'what if he get's a bad injury' argument. tricky one.

3.) 14 May 2017 21:03:39
I agree with your first point Aindoh. If Dembele is willing to stay, and I honestly think he is, then we would be silly to sell him this season. I think he will want to play CL football for us, knowing he will participate in every game and gain further experience. He appears to be a very patient and mature kid who is astute enough to know that time is on his side.

I partly agree with your second point. I think LG would and should be rightly pissed off if he was to get pushed down the pecking order. However, I will qualify that by saying that he's at a big club and big club's are fluid in their development. The playing staff will constantly change and hopefully improve. It is up to him to secure his place in the starting line up.

As for Solanke, who knows if he will come and who knows if he will be a success. The point is, if it isn't him coming to challenge our current strikers then it will be someone else. We should be embracing that sort of investment and improvement instead of fearing it, and so should the players.

4.) 14 May 2017 21:10:57
In brendan we trust a would bet we'll come out the summer transfer window stronger HH.

5.) 16 May 2017 01:06:15
Don't really post much but on the subject of Griffiths I feel I had to. Anyway I don't see what goes on behind the scenes but on the field you can hardly fault Griffiths for his contribution. If he hadn't picked up that injury I would have expected him to score 20+ even with his limited game time.

To even consider him being third choice is insane imo, if dembele was to leave or get injured long term I'm sure he would easily pick up where he left off. I hope Rodgers issue isn't down to his ego especially with what he said when he first arrived or down to him trying to stamp his authority although I do believe Griffiths should be doing as he is asked.

Hopefully we can get to a point where we have 3 top class forwards (demblele, Griffiths+1) as we did with Larsson and co. Neither are in the same league mind you 😉.

6.) 16 May 2017 12:49:35
Sutton, Larsson and Hartson, the hunskelpers.

7.) 16 May 2017 22:42:03
We won't get an offer of over £25-£30 million for Dembele as our Board will make it clear to any club who show an interest that a bid isn't welcome . Interest will be snubbed at outset .

Of course its no surprise that we have no idea who may be coming in, Celtic have always been good at keeping their cards close to their hearts and Brendan is keeping this tradition.

Was just reading about the Livingston goalie, Liam Kelly, he says the new artificial surface at Livingston, because it's new, is throwing up loads of little rubber pellets, he says "It gets in your eyes, it gets in your ears and goes up your nose. It gets everywhere."

Surely that is a health hazards, there was that story from a while back about the older artificial surfaces, throwing up carcinogens. if Livingston's new surface is throwing up pellets small enough to get up your nose, it could be also throwing up smaller particles, that you might be breathing in, am not in favour of artificial surfaces.


1.) 20 Aug 2018 19:48:27
I've been playing on a 2G surface on a weekly basis for years. 2G level is probably 2 levels below the standard these guys or anyone else in Scotland are playing on and i have never once seen someone injured on it. It also has the pellets and if players are honestly complaining about that they should give up football and go do knitting for godsake. Not saying these pitches should be anywhere near Scotlands top league but i think they get blamed for injuries unfairly. As i said i have never seen anyone injured on them and see that Jozo i'd tell him to man up and play on these surfaces or gtf. Picking and choosing what surfaces to play on he's a young lad! imagine saying to Jock stein i'm no playing the day boss i don't like the surface. don't recall anyone moaning years ago when they were playing on concrete or red clay 😂 absolute wimps these days and too pampered. I do want every pitch in Scotland to be grass just making the point that sometimes its the person not the surface.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 20:14:59
All the Astro pitches at Celtic training ground in Lennoxtown do the same mate.

If you honestly don’t think these pitches are causing injuries you are deluded. My son of 8 has started training on one and it coinsided with him getting constant shin splints. They’re a disgrace. I can’t remember the last time I watched an entertaining game on them either.

12.) 20 Aug 2018 22:01:11
Infact who gives a toss about artificial surfaces when a last min goal gets the coupon up. Mane is the man! 😆.

13.) 20 Aug 2018 22:07:53
Deluded because i play on them and have never been injured very good! Infact woman play hockey on the one next to us yet to see any of them injured or complain, and i do like to watch 😂 Steph maybe im no even walking. Stationary ogling 😂

15 Aug 2018 23:58:50
I think we should look on this as a blessing in disguise, the team wasn't ready for the champions league, what with injuries and bad form, now, the Europa league beckons, let's just go and win the thing, MON was ecstatic about reaching the final in Seville, this squad is younger and I think has more potential, some of these guys are very young, they will make mistakes, I wish some of the fair weather supporters would give them some slack, yeah, yesterday was a bad day at the office, and I think eight times out of ten we would have got through, but just be patient, this young team is a work in progress.


1.) 16 Aug 2018 07:12:02
Blessing in disguise missing out on £40m and maybe having to sell a couple of players to make up the shortfall?

2.) 16 Aug 2018 07:40:49
Win the Europa league! 🙈🙈🙈.

3.) 16 Aug 2018 08:39:54
Aindoh, your right about 1 thing, we are a young team. However to bring these young guys on we need a decent blend of youth and experience, and for me especially in defence we’re sorely missing a solid no nonsense centre back with experience to help bring the likes of hendry and ajer on. We cannot year after year give the type of goals away that we’re giving away in these games. Over those two legs I don’t recall Gordon having 1 really good save to make yet they get 3 chances and score everyone of them. IF we don’t sort that defence out now we’re just going to keep having the same issues.

4.) 16 Aug 2018 09:02:33
Well we'll take it boyata is finished and compper is going that's us left with 2 boys and jozo who's a bombscare. and am no buying move lustig in so we need a couple of defenders a the least.

5.) 16 Aug 2018 09:34:34
At present I think we are going backwards where Europe is concerned and although these early qualifiers do us no favours, the days of us getting through to the last 16 like 2006/ 7, 2007/ 8 and 2012/ 13 are almost impossible these days.
It's not just that top teams are getting better because of obscene wealth and automatic entry, it seems like we have lost the battling and passion that we relied on to make CL nights so special and replaced it with fear, nerves and inferiority.
We have always punched above our weight and gave a good account of ourselves against billionaire clubs eg: Man U, Barca, Ac Milan etc but this season we went into the qualifiers under-prepared, vulnerable and unable to match or compete without making the same mistakes time and again.
It's obvious we are not a CL club - we're not in it; but the manager and players have shown we are a good team when we want to be and the players must show that from now on and stop picking and choosing what games they decide to turn up (we know who they are) , or step aside, while others that are not good enough need to be shipped out and replaced by the best quality and experience we can find in what remains of this window and get us back on track.

6.) 16 Aug 2018 15:03:56
Your post might make sense if we kept any of our good players longer than 3 years.

by the time any of these boys reach not even their peak potential they will be sold to the highest bidder.

In other words our squad will continuously just be an inexperienced youth team.

7.) 16 Aug 2018 20:52:25
Tesla you have no idea of what you are talking about . BR has only been here 2 years so we cannot know what he will do with players after 3 years
If players demand a move after 1 yr or 4 yrs we have to listen to their request.



27 Jul 2018 14:20:21
Caught the end of the Aberdeen game chitchat, don't know who the pundit was or the commentator, but the commentator asked the pundit, something like, will Aberdeen go thru, if they play as well as they did against Celtic, when they beat them at the end of last season, and the pundit replied something like, but Burnley are an Epl side, then it developed in to a little exchange, of "you don't think Celtic would beat Burnley? ", " no, I don't, do you?, "I think they would beat them, eight times out of ten, ", " but they are an Epl side, they wouldn't beat them",
The pundit just couldn't bring himself to say that Celtic would beat an Epl side, I was only half listening, so maybe I picked it up wrong, then the commentator asked Willie Miller, and he said "it's irrelevant, we are meant to be talking about Aberdeen and Burnley", which I suppose us fair enough, just wondered who the pundit was.

I know Billy Dodds said we wouldn't beat Burnley recently but not sure if he was the pundit on this occasion.

26 Jul 2018 14:14:34
Think the biggest danger now is complacency and just thinking the tie is already won, need to keep focused and concentrated, a 2-0 score is all Rosenberg need, remember the games against Anderlecht last year.


1.) 26 Jul 2018 18:22:11
After 20 mins last night, we would have given anything for 3-1 but still we get a negative, radio listening doubter., to take away our joy after a wonderful evening, new pitch, new lightning, great atmosphere and a great comeback .
I am sure every person that follows Celtic, knows that 2 nil will do Rosenborg, but in three games in a yr, they scored just one goal and last season in Norway they scored no goals, of course the tie isn't over, did they not tell you on the radio last night was the first leg . That is a big clue there will be a second leg and then tie will be over.

There was £4 million mentioned when this saga started, that should have been Celtics opening offer, McGinn is easily as good as any other midfielder at Parkhead, big mistake letting him get away, if he is gone.

But is this what Allan wants?, surely he would be better financially staying with his Celtic contract, I still think in certain types of games against certain types of opponents, where a bit of craft and guile is needed, Allan would be what Celtic need.


{Ed007's Note - Allan wants to move back to Hibs, he's told both Hibs and Celtic that. He might be better off financially staying at Celtic but it isn't going to do his career much good, he's 27 later this year and has made a paltry 156 career appearances.}

Looking at his Wikipedia page, and the teams he has played for, and the level he reached, he looks like one of these guys that was very promising as a young player, but never developed into anyone to get really excited about, he is 28,now, maybe, if Celtic are really interested in him, I hope they have done their homework, and he is someone that will improve the defence and is not another Commper.

Shouldn't be bad mouthing his abilities, although I agree, his bad games much outnumbered his good games, might be a concentration, mental thing with him, but he did play well for Belgium in the world cup, the better others think he is, the bigger the transfer fee should be.

Wasn't there talk in the last few years, of moving Lustig into the centre of defence, where he has played before, because of his knees or his hip or something, he just doesn't have it as s fullback any more, there should be no place for sentimentality, and the same goes for midfield, just because we are double treble winners, does not mean that everything was perfect, the midfield had been lacking for the last two seasons, and longer, there is no creativity, Rogic is just a more talented version of Windass, Paddy Roberts was just a good dribbler, there hasn't been a top class creative midfielder, someone who can be the focal point, the brains, the master in the middle of the field, McGinn could have been that, but he is gone, and it will cost a lot more than four million, to get his equal.

Yes, that's the difference, superally, had to get the old Rangers into the champions league to keep their heads above the water, failure to do so, meant misery as Mr Pickwick said, failure for Celtic, this year, means there will be a dent in their profits and their pride, it doesn't mean they will cease to exist, as happened to the old Rangers.

Well Boyata has to go, don't think there is any way back for him, he will find out the grass isn't always greener, Commper, Biton, have to go, for different reasons, Allan, if he wants to go, I would let him, but I would have him in the team before Rogic, Henry, must be kept, he has potential, and I think he will fulfill it, Hayes keep, he is a good squad player, Christie is going to be a top, top player, keep him.
