any other celts online?
i hope your team gets pumped. Guess what team i support.
a motherwell fan pretending his real team is rangers
uefa cup run going by the way?
won't last long once you stop hiding from us and we play the rest of those 3 games against you lot
i wondered what that massive antenna above ibrox was for....now i know lol
was you lot that where hiding from us. Walter knows the measure of every Celtic team. Bring it on we have the fight for the old firm.
liked what you did there basel brush,BOOM BOOM lol, the mighty raingers, seriously though, how did you not score against that greek mob the other night?
it is now, i don't know why they changed it to a group-stage ala champions league competition without the glamour. it just dilutes the tournament, letting in more and more teams that are average at best
i don't really care that much if you win or not but it'll be pretty funny seeing caldwell or hartley take on henry :D
they took on kaka et all and we did alright didn't we?
we play just as negative but somehow seem to be sitting top of the league.
I'm warm aren't I?
Caddis, Hartley or Cladwell?
i think has a good chance of starting, and even though i think samaras is better than hesselink, he's been playing nbot too bad so will get the nod just because strachan always sticks with him
anti football this season as long as we get the league back. One year ago we where out of every competition by December so here we are still playing pish but in all comps, i cant complain.
at least you're honest, but you lot are still pish
caddis at right-back as a gamble, caldwell is too slow for that position
I do :)
one of the few celtic supporters in the middle of derby. i've had similar experiences of isolation like when i watched scotland beat france in paris in the middle of krakow lol, not a scot in sight
moving away from university lol, makes me wish i'd worked harder in my a-levels lol
is going to be a score draw on the Pools Coupon. Mind you, Barca seem to be moving into a spell of excellent form. Mind you again, Celtic are in the midst of a great run themselves. 1-1 I reckon with Barca to win the return 3-0.
an optimist as ever and think celtic will win either 1-0 or 2-1, i think the first score will suit us best, at least one goal and no away goal conceded, just liek 2004!
circa 2008 are 4000 times better than Barca circa 2004.
can happen in football though, we've got players who can create and grind out a result if need be. not many teams in europe get a result at parkhead....apart from barcelona few years back lol
I currently planning what to have for dinner before I put on my scarf and head over to Parkherd for the game.
but i'm missing the game.. CRRRYYYY
I'm so excited, but i have to go to the BBC and play stupid music on the radio baaahh
what is you?
football missing band.
I'll listen to it on BBC iPlayer later!
Funny thing is, it doesn't start until midnight, but i have to be there for 9.. BOOO
I might give this a listen, cheers.
I'm just back from the game. People talk about total football and I think I just witnessed the greatest one of the best football matches of my life.
Barcelona were exceptional. Ronaldinho got a standing ovation from the home fans when he was substituted and I think that sums up how good they were.
if they were they would have battered Celtic to fuck.
and Im a vague Celtic fan.
Barca were pretty slack in defence, as proven when Celtic had one chance and took it (and then went into sleep mode) Hesselink was getting every high ball.
The problem was Celtic giving them balls. ALL THE TIME. And being absolutely useless at clearing the ball.
Caldwell should be sacked.
Great game either way just depressing.
Without Boruc we could have conceded 6 or 7.
They were quite slack in defence though, I'll give you that.
Caldwell actually played well until THAT mistake...then he just lost confidence and was torn to shreds.
I dunno, the fact that they scored twice against Barcelona should have driven them much more. They always get so slack. Passing around in their own box like idiots. Also, taking off Hesselink (unless it was an injury - pretty silly)
As a rightback it was unfair to judge him but now he's back to his rightful position then he really needs to up his game.
The problem is that Strachan sees McManus and Caldwell as his longterm partnership, I think he plans for them to partner each other for years to come. Being that they are both 23 I can see this happening...it's going to be a long few years! :D
I would have hooked McDonald myself, he wasn't getting much luck.
Samaras looked lively when he came on too.
Barca were a jot to watch at times and Henrys goal (though coming from an error) was sublime.
Nakamura was truly awful (he is fairly awful most of the time) and Caldwell is one of the worst players i have ever seen line up for celtic, not to worry though. You'll do them in the return leg........
I wouldn't put my house on it. Sorry did i take the words out of your mouth Strachan. They should have taken a leaf out of Smith's book and pack the midfield in the second half. But you live and learn, away leg should be fun.
