Ive noticed that we could potentially end up with 12 points in this group and still fail to qualify. Does anyone know if this has ever happened before? O'Neills teams got 9 points twice and never qualified, which is rare. Strachan did it once with 8 points I'm sure. But to get more than 10 and not go through can't have happened often.

I wonder if the Chinese club Rodgers rejected is the same one that was trying to buy Morelos for a Billion in Jan.
Or is "Chinese club" just a modern football term for "This didn't really happen".
Why is this being made public at this particular time?

He is trying to say he is committed to us. Because the media are all saying he is for the off. So he came out and said if wanted out he could have gone.

Thought we battered them second half. Their goalie made at least 3 great saves.

Thought we were in for a what's the goalie Doing moment at the end. Bain got lucky when he came flying out.

I could swear that some posters here, condemn Gordon for not coming out .

4.) 27 Sep 2018 22:45:40
Chris we want a keeper to come out and make sure he at least challenges for the ball, bain got caught in 2 minds. Concentration is a major attribute for a keeper, aye he had hee haw to do for most of the game but that was a moment of madness.

Maybe Sstepbhoy2 you now understand that the Celtic defensive tactics is depending on the defenders taking care of the ball. Our tactics involve goalkeeper not having. a moment of madness and charging out blindly for ball and distracting defenders . This tactic is common wit some successful teams and other successful teams leave ball for keeper . What u can't do is have both defenders and keeper going for the one ball.
Commons does what he is coached to do.

So I wonder if porto fans are saying they should be embarrassed about taking a hiding in Europe, and that they aren't really a CL club and shouldn't even bother. Probably not.


1.) 15 Feb 2018 08:27:18
Of course it's embarrassing to take a hiding no matter who you are or who against.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 09:38:33
Porto fans will probably be doing what we did. Identify where they are needing to improve to reduce the chances of getting horsed and get players in to help with that.

Maybe they will do something about it, unlike us who operate on hope and a few hail mary’s.

As teams get better across Europe it very well be the case that them and us won’t be considered CL teams even by our respective boards anymore.

Tonight will tell us all we need to know if we have any right to talk about ourselves in CL terms.

I’m actually quite calm today, as my expectation levels suffered a blow after the window, so I’m not expecting much. I still have the feeling if we play the way we can we can get a result, but playing like we can has been a fleeting thing all this season. Zenit are better than Anderlecht imo so it’s going to be a night not suited to a rabbits in headlights approach as we saw against Anderlecht and PSG.

I thought it would be a tall order even if we did bring in a few first team defenders and a good keeper. We did none of that so it’s an even bigger ask with our injuries and our key players not delivering so far. This game could be a turning point. Win and we pick up a charge to the end of the season. Get embarrassed and the confidence could fall further. Time for the players to step up and play like men. Not overawed weans too feart to play their game. Let’s hope they do. I actually think they will step up, but don’t listen to me, I would have lost my house on the window purchases. not that anybody listens to me, but you know what I mean, my vibe has been wide of the mark and I could be wrong about them stepping up too.

3.1 to us if we step up

2.0 to them if we don’t.

Seen in an article today that the value of the club has rocketed by 50M in the last six months. 173M it is valued at now, over 100M more than two years ago. It's more than the rest of the country combined and is only going to increase. What will it be once the hotel, Celtic Way etc are finished. It could double again.

Much of this is down to Rodgers, he is paid a lot but it seems like pennies for what it has brought us.

And they think that "catching us" is just around the corner, a few good signings away. It's like us trying to catch Barcelona, and turning on every manager who fails. We're over the horizon for good now I think.


1.) 08 Sep 2017 18:21:06
@Isleofgreen to be fair and balanced, I heard pedro has managed to add 50PENCE on to their value lol.

2.) 08 Sep 2017 18:53:56
Did he leave it as a tip after his world class breakfast Tim? To be fair that's 50% of what the club was bought for so it is an achievment.

3.) 08 Sep 2017 20:43:10
According to a report today, they tried to sign McCormack from Villa on deadline day (the same report says he's on £45K a week at the moment. ) but it went on to say that if they had signed him, they would be well in with a chance of winning the league! Even more laughably, they said the "deal" could be resurrected in January and that that could still make the difference. Jeeeeeezzzzzzuuuuuuzzzzz!

4.) 09 Sep 2017 12:17:39
That's never going to happen. He's Pish.



14 Jul 2017 15:44:53
I had a dream last night that we won 5-0. Very rarely bet but i'm off to stick a tenner on it. Let's see if i've started having visions. C'mon the hoops!

It's really just becoming white noise now, he'll be linked to every half decent team on Earth from now to 10IAR.
They'll probably have him as Stevie G's successor when the messiah gets 'resigned'.

We'll know for sure if the Belgian line ups start appearing on here the day before the game. It could have just been good guesswork, i'm sure they were wrong a couple of times.
I think it was Dermot Desmond.

My Nephnews boys team are looking for a new coach soon, I'm expecting to see Rodgers linked to it any day now in the record.

Maybe his contract only started today? Even so it seems a strange story to put out just after punting Dembele. He says he wants to make his debut before he's 17 and he might just get that chance if Griff and Edouard are out at the same time, which isn't unlikely.


{Ed007's Note - He's mainly plays at left wing.}

Is that 3-4-2-1? Hayes is featuring more than I thought he would, he was good against Livi, has a great cross.


{Ed007's Note - Yeah it looks 3-4-2-1 to me.}

Agreed, a disappointing result but let's not chuck the toys out the pram, we are not entitled to win every game. Like you say Patrick the reaction to this will be to make strengthening the team a must in Jan. Remember the last time they won a game? We've won every trophy since.

Agreed JimTim, before we lost Dembele, he and Edouard looked frightening together. I think the plan was to play like that this season, maybe that's the reason our form dipped at the beginning, as we had to find a plan B.

If we get a striker of a similar style to the Moose, then Edouard will thrive I'm sure. The thought of him and Forrest on either side of a quality target man is mouth watering.

To be fair we were pressed back a lot last night and our passing trying to get out was poor.
He was chasing after the ball but couldn't hold it up enough for support.

Im sure James Forrest has played every season so far Kev.


{Ed007's Note - So he has, I thought he missed the first one for some strange reason.}

I think Brown still has the ability to play at this level at the moment, I think what has changed is the teams style.
Without him, we have players who all play forward at a high tempo, whereas his role has always been to break up and steady the play. He will still very much have a role this season, but I do think this is the beginning of the end for him.
He will depart a hero whether it's after ten or before.
