    The dust will settle as it always does. By this time next week we will be over tonight and be looking forward to this play off game.

    Not sure id pick this tournament, but i agree the fans need to take a stand.

    Would like to see fans pick a game and leave the stadium empty,it seems childish behaviour but i cant think of any other way the board will take fans seriously.

    Looking at Eds face near the end shows what he thinks too.

    Just a hindrance and will generate nothing for us.

    I did say the way CL is going we'll be lucky to 1 or maybe 2 in 5 probably, that might even be asking too much.

    Who exactly are we enticing to join Celtic off the back of the europa?

    Best case scenario is that we qualify for group stages, get a lucky draw and reach last 32 again and get pumped out by a Valencia etc...

    Worst case scenario is that we either get pumped out by AIK or get pumped in the group stages like a few years ago.

    Who's joining us off the back of either of those circumstances?

    We need to hit the reset button. Focus on the league. Get a 10 points lead by xmas. Stop rangers winning anything domestically. Sign players in January and start planning for next years qualifiers. Forget about this diddy europa league which is nothing but a distraction where the best we can do is be one of 32 random * teams

    I get what your saying but the topic was about how we feel about EL and regardless of how things went tonight the fact remains we have more chance of success in the EL than CL.

    Tonight was a disaster but we would have more chance of success against the likes of Cluj than we woul the Citys or Bayerns.

    I think tonights failure was more down to Lenny than anything else if im being honest,our squad as it is should be good enough to win tonight but imo Lenny did not utilise the players he had at his disposal.

    You think the squad we have at the moment should be good enough to beat Cluj?

    Would rather not take part in all honesty, I don't think it does anything for us except make our schedule busier. Hopefully I feel differently tomorrow but at the moment I can't see it.

    People saying we they don’t want to be in it :52: let’s see you saying that if there was no European football at all.

    They weren't that's a fact.
    We have an idiot board making woeful decision, a * in Lawell, two * duds we have spent 10m on (albeit I know it's probably a pot less)

    Our squad/ team wasn't good enough.

    Having looked at the AIK team we will be lucky to get through the tie tbh.

    AIK is a tough game.

    We should have guaranteed ourselves group stage football tonight.

    Absolute come down.

    I want to be in it (want to be in the CL more), but I don't want this board to be getting anymore money from the fans for this now. They sold us short and are gonna quietly take the income they can from us in Europa, while tightening the purse strings some more next season.

    Enough is enough with this lot.

    I'd rather drop out and focus on the league to be honest.

    Let the huns play all the games home and away and have injuries and suspensions build up which will * them up domestically.

    I agree that EL is our level as we would get * pumped silly off of champions league tables, but I'd rather do without it this season.

    We won't sign any more players and the KT money will cover the loss in progression anyway.
