    Nothing to worry about then. 1 nil or a few nil makes no difference.

    Some people need to have a reality check, we were never going to take any thing from tonight's game or get even close. We humped what was meant to be our closest challengers on Saturday. Tonight we were up against a Barcelona team that was making a point after their defeat at the weekend. That performance is why they are probably the best club team in the world.

    I don't see how Scottish football is supposed to get anywhere near that, to even get near the level of when Parkhead was just the worst place for any team to go to.

    DD would have to would have to become a trillionaire over night and then just bankroll every request to even start to get close.

    I'm not mad about the result, it is Barca at the end of the day but FFS what is the point in competing at such a level teams similar to ours, European football is just for the Elite and we are nowhere near it.

    To put this into context, we've lost 7-0 to Barca but seeing WGS on TV, reminds me we lost 5-0 to Artmedia Bratislava, which was worse.

    Pass Go and collect £200 that's Lawells motto - needed at least 2 quality midfielders and what do we end up with, the one trick Broony !!!! The most overrated player in a Celtic jersey. - Hapoel would have never lost 7 tonight. Not even any fight as well. Look scared.

    Never seen the game cos of work but said at the start of the summer qualifying for he groups is a season too early but we done it so couldn't expect anything else, just a pity UEFA gave us this * of a group to over exaggerate how far off we are

    Barca were absolutely class tonight. A different league to us. Fair play to them.

    Pick ourselves up and move on, its 3 points lost no matter if its 1-0 or 10-0.

    This is the best Barca side we've faced, you don't dwell on results like that and all you can do is look forward, the quicker we forget about this the better.

    Exactly!!!!!!! with Deila in charge we would still be going backwards, wouldn't have fancied beating that mob 5.1 either, but we did, we have come on leaps and bounds this season ffs calm down everyone.

    This why I hate this glamour tie patter. There is nothing glamorous about getting beat 7-0 in front of the world even if it is Barca. Give me an 'unglamorous' group like Leicester's any day where we could make a real go of it.

    It's a footballing lesson the players and management team can hopefully learn from and move on as quickly as they can

    Their front 3 are worth more than that :54:

    It was painful but we'll get over it. It's the league that's our focus, any points in the CL are a bonus this season as Brendan needs at least a season to develop his own team.

    We are playing with both hands tied behind our backs financially and the stitch up by the big four leagues.They can buy all the luck they want by buying the best players we have to find our luck,not so easy.The team has come a long way in a short time but obviously there's still a biulding process to be done.We will learn a whole lot more about ourselves tonight than playing Sevco 30 times and beating them.

    Precisely the reason why it's better to come up against Barcelona as opposed to trying to get 3 points off Bate Borisov or something.

    Our main objective for this season was to qualify for the CL - check.

    The experience we will gain from playing in this group will be absolutely vital for the future.

    People really, really need to calm the * doon and realise we came up against perhaps one of the greatest sides of all time tonight.

    I don't care if it's Barca. I resigned myself to the fact that we were going to be beat, but the manner in which defeat happened was utter *.
