    They are a very good team so wouldn't be too bothered if we get beat as long as we keep is respectable

    The league is the priority but be nice to go and get the win here, keep up the momentum and show what we’re all about.

    No stuffing around in the backline by Hart and the defenders, especially in the first 20 minutes when they still have not got a feel of the ball, the pitch and still have early anxieties playing in front of a hostile crowd. The game at Paradise comes to mind - no repeat of that thanks. We have the goods to give them a contest. The last time their keeper had a very good game and stopped us scoring.

    I say we can take a draw from this game and believe it will be a cracker of a match.

    Also Turnbull needs to know his left from his right. He gets into great scoring positions at times and gets flustered and childishly fluffs the chance to score. Euro teams are unforgiving, so we must clinically take our chances to score.

    I would say Euro teams score once every three chances they get in these competitions.
    Celtic on the other hand seem to have a ratio of one goal to five chances they get. This needs to improve if we are to be cutting edge.

    We need to stop trying to walk the ball into the net, and making one attacking pass too many. We need to shoot from outside the box and catch the keeper unawares as well. Mix up our approach. Players need to take the responsibility to be balanced, not to rush their shot, and pick their spot. Shooting hastily will not get results.

    Kyogo and CCV to score.

    On average in football it takes 10 shots to score a goal.

    Going for a good game from Turnbull, a Turnbull worldy, Kyogo popping up for a goal, and a 1-2 Celtic.

    For the most part it is not a game we would expect to win but we are still in transition so would take a 1-2 goal defeat. The sheep is the most important game this week

    I’m not sure but I think it was “Tifo” on YouTube. Great football channel.

    Very difficult game. In my opinion this is a free hit. Considering what Ange inherited, keeping us in Europe beyond Xmas is a great achievement, especially considering the group we got. I think we will score, I do still worry about us going the other way though. I would take a draw to keep momentum going even though it would probably mean we get eliminated from the Europa League.

    I actually think this'll be a lot closer than the game at Parkhead, could see us sneaking a draw here.

    Tbf although I think they had more gears, the scoreline flattered them. Their keeper played a blinder.

    a win would be incredible, a draw a good result, a loss understandable, a scudding tough to take.

    I'll be happy with no injuries tbh :celtman2:
