      Didn't they get beat 8-0 last season or something?

      That was at the Nou Camp 7-0.

      I should have said at home, my mistake.

      Ah yes right. Quite a few teams got an absolute tonking tonight didn't they? I'm afraid these days the European minnows (of which Celtic certainly are one)  are absolute cannon fodder for the big spenders (of which obviously PSG are the biggest). I must confess I didn't watch any of any of the games, can't get interested in it at all.

      Was a tough night, we aren't the first to suffer a 5 - 0 reverse and we wont be the last,   PSG are a slick team, probably the smoothest passing side I've witnessed at Celtic park and I have seen some of the best including  Barcelona in that.  Realistically PSG (who most certainly can win the thing) and Bayern will go through 1 & 2 and Anderlecht and Celtic will be looking for the Europa slot.   If we can get 3rd in that group, and I think we can and will, then it will represent progress.

      That said I am a fan, that means I recognise the quality of the opposition, it means I can admit they outshine us in every department (save our fans) BUT I will still be turning up against Bayern thinking we will win

      Good luck tonight

      Great playing in a league without any real competition!!

      Anderlecht is the only two games he'll win in the Champions League.

      We'll make the second round and Celtic will end up in the Europa.

      Anderlecht are a better team than Spartak and Celtic beat them 0-3 with a team that cost about a quarter of AOCs transfer fee.....just saying. Meanwhile our rabble of sh*t are for the second match day running the only English team not to win

      No one forcing you to support Liverpool. Maybe you should pick a new team?

      To be fair mate you don't really know that.    We have played 2 games, got battered in one and won the other.  Chances are that result last night already gets us 3rd place and as I said on an earlier post that would represent progress.   

      If we take something from Bayern - either home or away - would you concede that he is making progress?

      Hard to make progress in the SPL with no real competition.
      Ranger's demise might have been amusing for some (many? All? ;D ) but it impacted on Celtics ability to compete in Europe.

      BR has them playing some lovely football, but they need a bit more than that in the CL.

      Celtic didn't take a point away from home in the CL under Martin O'Neil, I think they'd won one in their history prior to last night. It's massive progress

      Really?
      Think back to how they did in the CL before Rangers got booted down a few divisions.

      As well as BR has done, his team need to be pushed domestically to get to that level again.

      Had a scot in over lunch and he was telling me it was only the second time they'd won away in the CL in their history. That can't be right surely? He also said it was their first ever away clean sheet, now that surely must be bollocks.

      I heard something similar being said while watching the game, so I think it's true.

      I wouldn't put too much focus on the result. 0-3 looks like Celtic completed dominated the game, but they didn't. Anderlecht was very, very bad.

      They're in complete chaos. Most of you probably remember their recent performances in the EL or CL, but the current team is nowhere near that. They're currently 7th in the league with only 12 points out of 8 games (their main title rival is 10 points ahead), they have fired their manager just over a week ago, the current manager has never managed a team before and was just given a chance because he was a very highly rated and respected ex-player.

      Don't want to get involved in a Rodgers dicussion, just putting the result in the right context.

      Me either. I've consigned discussion on Rodgers into the same file as discussion about Benitez. It deteriorates into mud slinging and toys out of the prammery.

      Lennon then guided Celtic through two qualification rounds to reach the group stage of the 2012–13 UEFA Champions League, where Celtic beat Barcelona one day after the club's 125th birthday.[84] Celtic qualified out of their group to the knock-out stages of the Champions League.[85] Celtic were comfortably beaten on aggregate by Juventus in the last 16 round, but both Celtic and Lennon were still praised for their overall Champions League campaign.


      Don't know how reliable WIkI is..

      Rodgers surely has to improve on this...

      Put Celtic's away form in Europe into context over the last 15 years or so and you'll find out pretty easily that the Bhoys have lost or drawn to clubs in far more unfavourable situations than Anderlecht.

      Celtic didn't dominate but they didn't have to. Nonetheless it's a legitimate victory that they fully deserved and probably would have won regardless and will go long way to their goal of stating in European competition after Christmas. And given the efforts Brendan has put into that club to rapidly develop young Scottish talent it would be entirely deserved.

      Didn't want to take anything away from their performance mate, they controlled the game easily enough and didn't give Anderlecht a sniff. Fair game and a legitimate victory that they indeed fully deserved.

      The young LB Tierney had a decent game.

      Seems to be a case of if Celtic lose in Europe, they are shocking, poor team, poor league etc - if they win it's the opposition who are poor.  The difference between the Celtic in the few years before BR came in and the Celtic team now is night and day.  The progress to us is obvious and we're delighted with it.  The thing is we can see that trend continuing and that's an exciting thing,

      While everyone will have an opinion, ultimately (thankfully) BR really only needs to convince one group of people and believe me he is idolised at Celtic and I guess that's all that counts.   

      Personally I do have a soft spot for Liverpool though and I hope Klopp gets it right
