Celtic fans are really touchy 

The amount of diddies posting about finances and business plans would suggest it’s probably the reverse that’s true and using a defeat to Real as some sort of gotcha is a genuine minter 😂

Only thing that went wrong yesterday is we didn’t take our chances to give us something defend and ran out of steam against a truly world class side. That’s the level and we aren’t at that level just now but we will keep trying 😉

Absolutely this. We got beat fair and square but happy with how we performed, however folk seem to crawling over each other on here to make the same remarks looking for a bite that’s not really there. It’s a bit cringe really.

You must leave, you do know that don't you ? Because if you stay, then no matter how hard you try you will never, never, never reach the level of Real, Man City, Bayern etc etc. Just as no matter how hard they try Aberdeen, Hibernian, Heart of Midlothian will never reach  the level of Celtic. So, please , for the good of all, just go. You offer nothing to us and we offer nothing to you..

You say they like I have any control or say in where we play 😂

Difference is I’m not going to bitch and moan about finances because there are parts of our performance last night which were good and if we were more clinical then getting a result may have been a possibility.

If the only factor stopping celtic from being the best team in the world is money, then we're looking at a systemic failure to attract significant investment - sack the board. 

All they need to do is show a bit more ambition.  Maybe grow their fan base a bit and they'll be able to complete with the big boys.  Apparently it's really easy.

We are showing ambition hence the  investment in our squad this season but Rome wasn’t built in a day 😉

I wasn't being serious Jinky, but I do look forward to the praise heading the way of Motherwell/Hearts/Hibs/Aberdeen the next time they have a go, but succumb to a 3-0 home defeat against Celtic.

You know, the usual story of a home side going close a few times in the first half, roared on by the crowd, before Celtic step up through the gears in the second half to a comfortable victory away from home.

That’s a good performance and result for Celtic  - the gulf in class between the European elite and the rest is enormous. They will learn a lot from the defeat. It’s a shame for the rest of us - another domestic treble and an undefeated season could well be on the cards.

Pointing out the realities of disperate football finances is not bitching and moaning any more than pointing out the realities of income differentials between billionaire hedge fund types and people on Universal Credit is bitching and moaning. Yet in  the Tory tinted world of Glasgow Celtic where you just have to think positive and try harder it seems that it is.  You're performance last night was as irrelevant as a St Mirren or St Johnstone pluckily making it to half time level before the inevitable and tedious pumping.  What poor Liz Truss will make of it when she takes up the invitation to watch the right wingers football club of choice is anyones guess. But she'll love the Celtic philosophy......no handouts, pull yourself up by the bootstraps.

Never heard a single Celtic fan, either at or after the game or on the Celtic fans forum I request, mention the gulf in finances as a reason we lost.

I think this has stemmed more from the recent posts on here from some Celtic minded posters on recent threads regarding the duopoly stating teams need to show some more ambition and just "get things right" in order to challenge Celtic (or Rangers). I don't think it's much to do with Celtic fans reaction to last nights result.

Think he thinks the whole gulf in finances debate is just some internet point scoring exercise and not the stark reality of professional football.

Like it or not football is a pyramid system at every level and unless you change the system at Uefa level and implement all of these suggestions such as revenue sharing, salary caps, limits on foreigners then it’s just blue sky thinking. 

We aren’t going to be getting a cut of Real Madrids revenues, we aren’t going to be given a handout by PSG, Man City aren’t going to reduce their salaries to make it fairer for us so the option presented with us is a singular one and that is use the resources at our disposal and try get better.

Thats the reality and it’s the one I’ll face into with optimism. You won’t hear me say it’s pointless or meaningless or that we should just start playing our reserves
