This, should be an easy 3 points at Parkhead. 

No gimme at this level Bennett, we don't play players of the standards of Sands, Barisic and McLaughlin in the Champions League.

I was a few rows behind the banners so was unaware of what they said, just back in the hotel and catching up on social media and seen what they said  absolutely fucking magnificent, outstanding in fact, the social media meltdowns they are provoking from the predictable outlets confirms job well and truly done.

Great couple of days in Warsaw, a stunning city with lovely people, would definitely return again. 

Should have won the game really given the chances we created but a good point if, and it's a big if that we beat Shaktar Donetsk at Celtic Park, need some shut eye now, about eight hours sleep in two days and I have a flight at 6.30 am,  night everyone from your humble narrator here in the Radison Blu Sobieski hotel in Warsaw. 

The banners are not even that bad 

Pretty mild to be honest

Class.
Celtic chasing the ball about like a bunch of weans.

It does look at most times from the two European games I've seen that Ange and the players think pressing is just the front players running really fast towards opponents with the ball, the individual effort is there but they just don't press as a team or in any cohesive way. Works in Scotland as most home grown players are technically poor under any sort of pressure, not in Europe were you just get passed round. Its really naive at times and there appears to be no plan b.

Pretty positive about that performance despite the result 

Not that long ago conceding a goal like that we would have collapsed 

 

Celtic most definitely did collapse after the equaliser, they just regrouped well at half time.

I was disappointed with the performance last night. For majority of first half i.e 15 minutes-45 I thought we were really poor. 2nd half we were better but still very average and as has been the norm at times especially last season just not clinical infront of goal. At this level if we continue like that we wont be qualifying for anything. Hopefully it was just a bad night and to have a bad performance and still get a draw is a step up. I was just hoping for more and maybe thats a good sign. We didnt prove anything last night and the games with Redbull will be tough I think. 

Got to get at least 4 points of RB and beat Shaktar to have any chance of 2nd. Id accept 3rd and a run in europa. 

The game against Madrid it felt like we left everything on the pitch, last night felt far from that and maybe thats why it was so disappointing. 

Onwards and upwards though, one game at a time.

Madrid win their next 3 games and we win our home games then 2nd is ours,

Is that enough to get 2nd?

Yip, unless I’m reading it wrong. Going into last game we’d be on 7. Shatker on 4 and RB on 3 (assuming we get nothing in Germany) We’d have a 3 pt lead over shatker with a better head to head.

I think we would also need Shakthar and RB to draw their game also. Ideally we get points in Germany also

If Madrid win all their games and Shakthar and RB draw then yes. Would mean they both finish on 4 or 5 points and us on 7…. I think 🤔

"Job well and truly done" ? What exactly do you herd of revolutionary masterminds think you will achieve here ? What do you want to achieve here ?  The collapse of the monarchy. ? Peace bread & socialism ? The beatification of Jota ? As you might say, ' f**k knows'.  But just a thought. If someone believed, rightly or wrongly, that the Catholic church down the centuries had repressed, subjugated and pillaged country after country and had abused physically and psychologically men women and children throughout the world, would it be Ok for them to unfurl a banner with 'f**k the papacy' written on it ? I certainly don't think it would. Would it be then ok for a fellow traveler of these people with the dubious views about the Catholic church to describe the banner as "absolutely fucking magnificent, outstanding in fact " Again, I say definitely not.  But you clearly would have no problem with that I presume ?

Of course you'd fucking accept that 😂 it's not as if your recent European campaigns have led you to believe you expect better.

Our very recent run is better than yours.

Aye, that 1 point and 1 goal better off than us. We've won 2 matches in Europe this season to your zero... 😏

I wasn’t being entirely serious, mate. But I’ll take the goal and point. We’re also ahead on Queen difference.
