    And now this is exactly why our next batch of players will be down a level again. Worrying times. Without some proper money spent and scouting better than scottish championship players the glory years are going to be at an end soon. * joke.

    Thank * the EPL window is shut. There will be clubs in France interested in both of them. In all honesty, Edouard is too good to be playing in the SPL without CL football

    AIK will be better than Cluj.

    In the Icelandic striker they have a guy who knows where the net is.

    In Seb Larsson they have someone who delviers a wicked set piece.

    This is like Braga and Utrecht all over again from Lennys first season!

    I think it will be Eddie looking for the move tbh Gyp.

    Wouldn't surprise me if Lille come in for Eddie.

    He doesn’t strike me as the type to push for a move or rock the boat, but if he goes the we will struggle even domestically.

    Logical stand point we don't make europa any money that they are willing to spend they won't and if the huns make it only means they are catching upto us in regards to be able to invest that money back

    We need to get in the Europa League massively and have a run in it as long as possible. Our players need to learn more and more about playing on the European stage.
    If we are going to have a go at the Biscuit Tin Cabinet then nobody should turn up for the game on Saturday.
    To not qualify for the Europa League and the Huns do will be a massive joke. Imagine if they were still in Europe after Christmas their players would be getting vital experience and the Club would be seeing to go places.
    Meanwhile we are completely out of Europe. So we win the league for 9 and * up in Europe again then get 10 and * up in Europe again.
    No we need to take Europe seriously,very seriously and Lenny needs to be cunning and hungry in investing in the team for a run well past Christmas.

    Was saying exactly the same the last night. The grim reality is the huns could match our European progression this year. It will send shivers down my spine if they get a favorable group and we typically pull out the group of death (if either get into the groups).

    It's absolutely shocking that after 8 years of domestic dominance we continue to allow our squad decline.

    Cluj by all means are no mugs but certainly a tram we should be comfortably beating. Aek will be no walk in the park. Very worrying times. Get it sorted Celtic!

    The elyonoussi isnt the norwegian international that we were linked with previous , this is a relation to him but dont know how decent this one is , the player goitom and enoch adu are good players too. Think they will be a better side than cluj tbh

    I really think you are over estimating AIK. Even though I agree we could lose to any club at this state (seems to be a psychological issue losing to lesser teams?) AIK is a team we should beat 7 days out of 7.

    Someone mentioned Henok Goitom and Seb Larsson, 2 players who passed their best before date a while ago. Yes, they have players they can threat us but to consider any Swedish club better than Celtic is just wrong (even Malmö). There is not a single AIK player I would chose in our Celtic team. With that said, AIK will be pumped and really motivated to reach the Europa League which for Swedish teams is really important and not as poorly considered as it seems here. Allsvenskan is so competitive that every chance you get to qualify for Europe is a great opportunity. Really important that Celtic is up for the task since AIK will give everything should they beat Sheriff.

    We aren't good enough when it comes to Europe m8. Have you not been paying attention? The EL would be nothing but a drain on the team and would lessen our already shaky chance of winning 9IAR. As for NL being cunning and investing in the team for a run past Xmas well there's more chance of PL signing us Messi out of his own pocket. The Europa league can go f**k itself as far as I'm concerned.

    No European football this season. Can't see us beating AIK not after last night.

    Even if we go out and spend on players there never put straight in the first team.

    Brown is nearly finished and no CDM to come in.

    Won't buy a Keeper and Bain will cost again this season

    Defenders still can't cope with the press.

    Still no left back

    Lennon out his depth.

    I don't know whether AIK are any good or not but I do know we simply do not have a clue how to defend properly or how to play intelligently in Europe against anything like a half decent team. Add into that mix our players don't work anything like as hard off the ball as they should(see the difference between us and Cluj last night) and it's no wonder we constantly get bombed out by mediocrity.

    All this * about our players need european experience to prepare them...what for?

    Our best players get 1 or 2 years european experience and then they leave, taking their experience with them to another club.

    Leaving us back at the drawing board with a new group of inexperienced players.

    We got plenty of european games last year. 8 in the qualifiers, 6 in the europa groups and 2 in the knockout round. * all good that done us when you've got lewis morgan playing
