So here's a question, is the whole ten in a row circus becoming a millstone round our neck? I feel there is a danger this will dominate far too many fans thoughts, probably starting next week. Rodgers left at a nightmare time, games to come and cup ties, but the squad he left has added to a core of players who just don't need.

In a few weeks we will be looking for a new manager, actually i hope we would have some people in mind, this has to impact on players out surely? Any new boss would have to assess the squad, and given the ludicrous time our season starts now, that's a headache. There is also the purchase of players, maybe more of a problem than selling.

If we win the league, never mind the treble, the pressure on the team and new boss would be intense. This job will not be for anyone. This job will require a certain type who can handle the intensity from the stands, and that's before our slanted press are even a factor. But the worst of all is he will have to handle a section of our support who seem to think ten is a walk in the park, a stroll. It will not be. This will be the same people who groan at every misplaced pass, or at anything really. I believe this ten in a row thing fuels it.

I ask this. let's say we appoint an innovative young coach with good connections abroad. A guy who has us passing and moving the way most Euro teams play at Celtic Park, even the part timers. A coach who plays young players with no fear, who can get results like Ajax v Real. A guy who moves us up the ladder in Euro terms. There might be a bloody nose domestically and ten would be over. But, we would have a team to compete, really compete, in Europe.

Would you be happy swapping ten in a row? Considering we done it first and teams have way more than that now, i would. In a heartbeat.

If we have a team to do anything in Europe we won't have to worry about domestic success that would take care of itself. Do think the 10iar is a bit of a burden similar to the invincible run.

24 Mar 2019 13:33:38
10IAR is meaningless without success in Europe, it just emphasises how poor the opposition in Scotland is.

24 Mar 2019 13:51:59
I am guessing the the guy posting and the comments above are from a younger generation who have been spoiled with constant success.
If you seen their 9 in a row, I bet you would all want 10 in a row as much as me.
I still feel the only way they will be punished properly for cheating, will be if Celtic win 10 in a row.
Winning the 10 is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It is not meaningless, just enjoy the ride, its only another 2 years, then our club will change route to suit our younger fans.
As i mentioned before there is not a rush to change things, its only 2 years and I promise when you look back in years to come, it will be the best 2 years you will ever remember in watching Celtic Football Club.

10iar is the holy grail for me and we should go all out to secure it as early as possible.

24 Mar 2019 14:08:22
Whatever happens in Europe is a bonus for me. Domestic dominance year after year is a joy after living thru their 9 in a row and EBT years. Under BR in Europe we where batterd playing his system and he wouldn't change his way. Im hoping for 10 in a row which will be the best 50th birthday present I will ever get.

24 Mar 2019 15:15:05
If we compete in Europe then we'll dominate on the domestic front we're 2 years from achieving something that will probably never be equalled and your willing to sacrifice it for a couole of decent euro results without actually winning a euro cup . not for me.

24 Mar 2019 16:02:39
10IAR will become more and more like the unbeaten run. It'll weigh heavy on everyone involved at the club the closer it gets but that's the price you pay to be a legend.

24 Mar 2019 16:08:36
I get what the original poster is getting at with progression in Europe but for me at the minute with Scotland's standing in Europe both need to go hand in hand we need to dominate at home to qualify for the champions League and that's where our progress will be judged in the long term.

24 Mar 2019 18:19:46
The fact 10IAR weighs heavy emphasise's how important it is to some people - myself included.
the chance of improvement will always be there, but to be the only team to reach the 10IAR marker is bragging rights for a long time and for me draw a definitively line on the 90's heartache. I grew up win the 90's on stories of Celtic greatness all the time enduring the Murray years and arrogance.

And another point - winning the league is the only way of having a chance at CL qualification, so 10 IAR and beyond is essential i.

How could 10 in a row be meaningless . 10 in a row will be a magnificent achievement, I was lucky enough to be around for the winning of the European Cup in 1967 and I thought it would be the first of many . However our greatest ever Manager wrecked our chances in 1970 by for some strange reason, only known to him, he dropped George Connolly for the final . Our three men mid field completely destroyed Leeds much vaunted in semi-final but in the final Bertie and Bobbie hardly touched the ball, but we all got over the disappointment because we had our whole lives to win many more European Cups .
People talk about European success, what are they on about, qualifying for Champions League stage, rubbish that's nothing, last 16, really not success, the Celtic I knew could get to 2 finals in 3 yrs, now that's what I call success, anything else is only going through the motions of European Football, give me continuous success in domestic football. Every club is rated by their domestic achievements, EuropeanFootball is show-time, owners laundering their dirty money and showing they can buy the best . That's not why Celtic were founded.

I love the idea of us breaking another record with 10 in a row but it does not dominate my thoughts. I want us to win the league first and foremost. Of course 10 in a row, 11 in a row will be a result but I just look at each game/ competition as it comes up.

25 Mar 2019 06:19:03
10 in a row will, if it happens be an amazing achievement. I echo the thoughts of above. During the minty years listening to the smarminess of it all and now knowing it was a house of cards. They financially cheated their way to it. For us to beat it on a solid financial footing will never be equalled.

27 Mar 2019 18:10:00
10 in a row is only the first stop on our way to 13 in a row which will be #55. I pay my season ticket for domestic dominance which always comes first Europe is an extra.
