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.

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.

Yes, we paid them to take him!

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.

aindoh

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.

aindoh

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.

I just don't get this going away to a hot climate for warm weather training then coming back to a freezing Scottish winter, and be expected to perform, would it not be a better idea to go to Iceland and take advantage of their all weather facilities.

{Ed033's Note - i wonder whether high altitude training would be better than warm weather training.


1.) 21 Jan 2018 17:47:16
High altitude in a cold climate, the rest of the season would be a breeze.

The referree tomorrow night once abandoned a Europa league game because of one of the visiting players being struck by an object thrown from the crowd, he might have handled the Belfast game differently than the ref on the night.

Didn't he have a bust up with McCann, that's why Dundee shifted him, nothing to do with his goal keeping abilities, he might turn out to be the new Ronnie Simpson.

Yes, but when he was with hibs, he was a regular, that helps a player's confidence, I think if you went around Scotland and England, picking up players that were talented but we're only thought of as squad players at their home club, and you were the right kind of manager, you could probably mould a team that might not win the league but would be able to qualify Europe every year and get past the first two or three rounds.

Think when I used to see the highlights of when Griffith's was with Hibs, he scored a lot but made a lot aswell, seemed to be a team player rather than a glory hunter, there is only one way to find out.

I meant Larsonn, Griffith's and McGregor were strikers plus, maybe what I am trying to say is try Griffith's in that position that McGregor was playing or Rogic would play, I think he would do well there.

aindoh

{Ed007's Note - Got you now, you caught me when I was just up there lol I don't think LG could play in there simply because he's far too greedy with the ball, it would be like having Commons back in there with LG always looking to take the shot rather than see other options around him. You'd have your wide players making runs and space only to see LG shooting from 25 yards.}

They should use the tour to bring on young untried players, and try to unearth some that could walk into s competitive international match, they should omit any Celtic players from the tour, I hope McLeish doesn't go down the ridiculous route that Strachan did, by being loyal to players that he had used before, instead of giving inform players a game,

No I meant play Griffith's, if he had been fit, in McGregors role, whatever description you give to that role, Sutton, Hartson and Dembelle, I would call strikers, Larsonn, Griffith's, McGregor, I would have to think of some other word that describes their best contribution to the team.

aindoh

{Ed007's Note - You've lost me here. I started saying that LG couldn't have played the game Dembele did against Zenit meaning they are totally different types of players and you're going on about playing LG if he had been fit instead of McGregor. McGregor wouldn't even have been playing if Rogic had been fit and if he had played in the cancelled development game earlier in the week.
And why play players out of position when you don't need to?
Larsson, Sutton, Dembele and LG were/are strikers, McGregor, like Rogic, Lubo and Kris Commons, is an CM/AM or the old fashioned No.10. You're the only person I've ever heard say that Larsson wasn't a striker, so where did he play in MON's 3-5-2 because it certainly wasn't in any of the 3 or 5?}
