Same old problems. We literally have it wrong from top to bottom.

1. Someone said earlier we need to decrease costs. This squad clearly needs more investment, serious investment. Not projects, otherwise we would be as well not taking part in Europe.

2. Rodgers style, possession is based on dominating a team. That's ok when you have better players than the opposition.

We don't and therefore we are throwing games in Europe.

3. The players don't have the quality or mentality. Some are too young and naive. Others past it. No between.

4. We have regressed in quality and by choice, not necessity. Our revenue has been higher than Valencia recently. Yet we persist on acting like a pub team.

Many seem happy with that and now we are merely a domestic level side at best.

The board clearly don't trust Rodgers with signings imo as look at guys like commper, Hayes, Hendry, eboue, Gamboa etc etc they are all crap. Serious money has been wasted on these players and dermot will never back any manager enough to make a difference in Europe. Celtic just a stepping stone selling club now that's the sad reality.

We do need a cull in the playing staff and better quality brought in more so in defence sadly apart from KT we need a full defence because no investment there in the past what 3 years? . The system we use not working in Europe and don't seem to change it. But apart from the stupidest of mistakes by some of the players constantly same ones I thought we held our own and on another day it could have been different just stop the stupid passing and predictable passing.

Rodgers signings may been poor but really we have been signing duds for years before Rodgers.

The structure at the club is wrong.

Tyson hit the nail on the head. It's a harsh reality that we have chosen this way as a club.

I'd like to see us blend between Rodgers style with a physical style. Find a medium between the both.

I got plenty of abuse for being "negative" on here, when I was simply being honest and realistic.

But I was unfortunately proven right last night. I don't even want to criticise players individually it's not their fault we recruit projects for that level.

We are below the level we could be at and it's by the boards choice. We have it too easy domestically.

Sooner 10 in a row is done and dusted the better. That's all they can hide behind now.

I’ve got one thing to say to all of the above posts, ‘pish’.

15 Feb 2019 14:59:56
Again tesla, we’ll done on ‘being right’.

Must give you a fuzzy glow inside predicting all this blatantly inevitable scenarios.


15 Feb 2019 15:32:50
I am right though.

Are any of you two above suggesting we are heading in the right direction to improve as a club?

Is the level Celtic is at now acceptable to you?

If so fair enough, but for me I'd demand better

Accepting mediocrity at a club this size is ridiculous to me.

If we want to be a domestic side only we could do it spending half the money we do now.

Have a starting eleven of the best SPL and youth players and we could win the SPL.

The reality is things have changed. Scottish football is not highly regarded in and out of Scotland. It's not entirely the board or BRs fault so reality check is needed. Until we as a nation start promoting the best our game had to offer instead of just taking sky peanut money and talking down our game club and national level things won't change. We should be applauding the direction we have taken in bringing in the best young talent we can attract whom otherwise we would never see. This is the reality, we are better than last night and we have all witnessed this. I don't think after one game against champions league level opponents with bags of experience and a newly signed £40 million pound striker is a rationale comparison. We can and will do better as much as I am dissapointed with last night it's not the time to throw toys out the pram. This team beat Man U twice this season.

Yes Telsa you are right. A right ****.

15 Feb 2019 20:30:27
Excellent mark. That's the input from all the happy clappers.

No input other than insults. Nothing worthy to add.

Because to even attempt to defend not even the result but the performance last night would be futile.

It's not good enough. We have got gradually worse since Rodgers came in.

We are on a decline and need better. People like you do nothing but insult me for stating facts and not being green tinted specs about everything.

Last night was terrible and not even a surprise yet another tame performance in Europe. One of many over the last 4 or 5 seasons.

You are forgetting we have had a lot of bad luck with injuries this season Tesla. That team that played Valencia would not have been our best 11 players if luck and circumstances had gone our way. The January signings/ loanees have just been asked to step up to the plate for a big game in Europe which might not have happened if our treatment rooms hadn’t been so busy this season.

16 Feb 2019 00:37:22
Good shout Kwaj. As I’ve said before, we need to stop subscribing to SKY and BT as this only helps to widen the gap between us and Europe’s elite.

16 Feb 2019 01:43:47
Ok cowbig you are right and the rest of us are all wrong then? ok then defend the signings of hendry, Hayes, gamboa, Marvin, eboue and musonda etc etc as you are the fountain of knowledge on all things Celtic tell us why we are wrong then?

16 Feb 2019 11:07:26
Gedceltic even with our best starting 11 I don't think we would beat Valencia.

Again though it doesn't change what I say, if our backup players are so bad we require emergency loans in January cos of injuries

Then it shows our squad depth is huge but empty of talent.

We have had to rotate the squad due to how many games we play and lots of times even domestically we have dropped points doing this.

Proving we need to get our finger out and improve the squad.

Find it difficultto see how we are going backwards under Rodgers considering wehave an unprecedented double treble (possible trebletreble) and an invincible season. Allo of which was achieved after the mighty rangers came back to the spfl and not before. Yes in Europe we have progressed further on occasion but when you consider that we now have an extra preliminary round to negotiate and the difficulty to attract good seasoned professionals to Scotland it is understandable. We can attract young good so called projects on loan to be developped which is to their advantage and ours (short term) and then developping our own youth as it is clear to see tat some of our better players have come throuth our youth system.
Whilst it is difficult to admit I don't believe Celtic will ever achieve its full potential, considering the size of club it is, whilst its domestic football is Scotland solets just enjoy our domestic dominance because without that we wouldn't even be talking aout european football.

16 Feb 2019 15:09:45
Donjim it's the style as well. In Scotland playing possession is perfect because we have better players than anyone else

In Europe we don't but still try to play attacking even against PSG or whatever. It's ridiculous as we have a weak squad compared to them.

That's like st. Mirren trying to attack us or dominate possession

As for rangers, they may technically be back, however it's no exactly true as they aren't close to the level they once where.

If they were we would have lost the league last season and currently be second this year based on average PTS back in the day.

So even domestically the full story isn't clear.

16 Feb 2019 18:48:05
I still think BR is the man for the job but I also think we have massively under invested in defence we could probably make a full team out of the amount of midfielders we have on our books and the loan signings good players but to many don't know if any of that is Brendan fault but we do need better quality for Europe never now going to win it but I think we could or should be aiming for last 16 CL or quarter final in Europa on a regular basis.
