    I get the leagues more important angle but a win here could be massive for moral both on the pitch and with the support.

    A win here would be massive for Lennon. Sadly, that is what’s going through his head right now, I’m sure.

    He Will 100% play our strongest side, whatever that side is, and the players will chase until smoke are coming out of their buttholes. Which will make us all baffled and think “why did they not fight like this against the huns?”

    Ending up getting a draw or a win, couple of knocks and exhausted players, and a manager that has a job a few days more.

    We have seen this pattern for a long time.

    What I believe is best for Celtic FC when the ref blows the final whistle is something that makes me very sad as a fan.

    Our only saving grace here is I can see them rotating due to their strong league start, however they will likely still have too much for us on current form.

    At the moment I would take a clear formation and approach to the game where it actually looks like the players know what they are doing, rather than pass balls straight out the park, pass the ball between Brown and the 3 CBs before its eventually launched up to a tiny forward line. Reminds me of Mowbray tactics.

    Exactly. Yesterday they just passed it between the back 3/4. You could see huge gaps down the centre, then they passed it back. Then punted it because they got bored of passing.

    Might be handy to try guys out and for fitness but that's it. Mind you, don't want confidence battered even more.

    I'm finding it hard to get interested or excited about this match, I'd probably be more excited if we were going into the game with any kind of decent form but were not.

    No matter how we line up I’m not going to feel confident or inspired.

    If we lose I wont be surprised, if we pump them I’m going to be raging we turn up for this game but didn’t bother our arses at the weekend.

    Our play so far this season doesn't inspire confidence in getting a win,Milan aren't a great team at the moment but teams don't have to be great against us as we tend to give them chances through bad decision making in the pitch. We live in hope of a good result

    Not interested, the seasons all about 10 in a row for me. Use the Europa games to get players fit for the league games.

    Damage limitation might be the best way to approach this game.

    Park the bus and if we get a foot hold in the game then take it from there.
