    People moaning about Griff, we punted balls up to him for most his time on the pitch.. not enough responsibility taken by the midfield in the first half to play the ball.. lost cause for him tonight..

    We didn't believe that was the main thing! We need to believe to have a chance in games like these..

    I feel as if weve almost hit a glass ceiling when it come to the champs league.

    We have to get that 3rd spot because we could compete in the europa, thats were we can start improving.

    theres something to be said for not just playing anti-football like the huns when up against superteams

    and just listening to rogers there it seems to me hes blooding the players and hes gonna be around for a while and hopes these players learn from being played against the suerpstars of the game

    question is can he hold on to his best players to build a team that can do ok in the champions league, i hope so, but you really need guys like dembele only on for 20min and you can see the class in him

    rogic and forrest were excellent aswell

    we can beat bayern at home i have no doubts about that

    Easy for Forrest to make an impact tho late on, no telling how Forrest would have got on if he had started each game.

    Forrest ball retention is much better tho and possession is everything in games like these so wouid defo play him in the return. Paddy is more of a goal threat tho no doubt so it is a dilemma..

    Maybe it was part of his loan agreement that he had to start CL games..:fear:

    Griffiths should be nowhere near the starting 11 in a champions league match away from home.
    He has the pace, but that counts for nothing in these matches. Big mistake from Rodgers in not giving Dembele game time on the weekend for this match. Dembele has a natural all-round play which Griffiths doesn't have.

    And massive embarassement for Celtic in not having a decent centre back in reserve. It's cost in these big games.

    We give big teams like a Bayern far too much respect.

    We can take them at home.

    Really? Bayern had another gear to step into..

    I expect the return to be tough too.

    I'm the same mate 3-0 after 50 minutes, feared the worst , but we dug in,
    Think we need a big * off no nonsense * like Bobo or mjallby at back as although we didn't deserve to win it was 3 easy heiders from set pieces which guys like that prevented in O'Neill s day
    Still think PSG a lot better side than Bayern
