Neil Lennon assumption that celtic can be caught if they progress in europa Cup. There is probably a hint of truth in that. Could we be caught; yeah I think we could. Get passed Zenit your into last 8. What my question is to Ed and rest of hoops. What what you settle for? To reach another final potential winners or to rake up another title on way to 10? I might be against the majority but I think the 9 from the Lisbon lions should not be equalled. It was a special team that made two European finals and 4 semi finals! The league had strength. Scottish teams played in Europe and didn't fade. I would love another final and have our name on a Cup. What's everybodies opinion?

This ten in a row is is becoming a pain in the ass. Would i like to win it, of course, but it's not the be all and end all. Surely the progress of the Club is paramount? A Euro final would take precedence for me. I also add the feeling, personal, that i doubt very much if we would have a chance of doing it. outside forces and all that.

What will certain sections of the support be like? Jeeze a bad pass at Celtic Park is bad enough!

When we get the injured players back we have the squad to win the title if we progress in Europe. Even the players we have now won't lose this league. If we get 4 points off Rangers then its done.

Ten in a row . simples.

20 Feb 2018 13:43:03
Ten in a row without success or even progress in Europe is merely a reflection of how poor the opposition is in Scotland, rather of any improvement in Celtic.

No improvement since Brendan came in qualified 2 year in a row for cl previous 2 years didn't treble o my 4th in history unbeaten season already won first cup of this season come on aindo.

No club in the world has the league won, until it is mathematically impossible for them to be beaten . Celtic are no different . However there is no club other than Celtic who are capable of putting a run together to match Celtic, and then get 10 points more than Celtic in the last 11 matches .
Aberdeen Rangers and Hibs are all in the race for 2nd and it could be a tight race unless Rangers die around the middle of March .
However it's good to see Aberdeen and Hibs mount a decent and honest race for second position in league .

For me the league is a must win, if its 1 or 10 in a row that's the bread and butter and bragging rights, also that's not to say we can't do both and have a great run in the EL, maybe win/ final, and it might only come around once in your life time as a fan. enjoy the journey, taste the win, let it dance on your palate. and as they say here for a good time not a long time. i need to stay off those tablets. hail hail. let's do the ruskies first.

That's not what I said, we could win a hundred in a row, if there is no decent opposition in Scotland, is only in European competitions, that you can guage any real improvement, of course there has been improvement under Brendan, but the real barometer of improvement is Europe.

{Ed007's Note - Sorry, Aindoh but just to rewind a bit, where did Neil Lennon say Celtic can be caught if we progress in Europe?

"The league is a lot more competitive this season. I still expect Celtic to go on and win it comfortably but if they’ve got one eye on Europe there may be an opportunity to make inroads. However, it’s going to take a hell of a run for somebody to put a shoulder on Celtic."

I take it that was twisted into a headline that Lennon said Celtic can be caught?}

The only way our club can continue to progress is if we get to the group stages of the CL because the financial reward is so great.

With this in mind, the answer to the question would I prefer to:

a) lose league and get to Europa League final


b) not reach the final but retain the league and maintain the chance of 10 in a row.

I would go for option (b) because if we don't win the league we don't get CL football, unless we won the final. Not only that I would prefer 10 in a row to winning the Europa League. If we were not going for 10 in a row I would be torn because although I want the team to progress, the Seville season was probably the most amazing season I have experienced, despite not winning anything that year.

Anyway, the answer is moot because it is highly unlikely we would get to the final as there are much better teams than us still left in the competition.

I was going off on a tangent.

{Ed007's Note - No it's fine mate, I hijacked your post but I just wanted to get that in there.}

If we take care of becoming a team that can qualify and play well in the cl group stages, then the spfl will be an even easier proposition than it was last season. Euro success guarantees home domination. If we can cope there we are miles ahead.
