    Really wish Sammy plays, not too bothered about Hooper; he wasn't great in Barca. I'd go with:

    Forster
    Lustig Wilson Mulgrew Matthews
    Brown Kayal Wanyama Ledley Samaras
    Miku​

    Should be interesting to see the team-sheet tomorrow!

    I was pretty optimistic before hearing the injury list...

    I think Hooper, Brown and Sammy will make it but I shall make a team without the doubtful players

    Lustig---Ambrose--Wilson---Mulgrew

    If Samaras can't play then Commons for him but that's what I'd go with too :50:

    There's no way Broony won't start.

    Huge, huge opportunity for whoever comes in for Hooper. I would love to see Tony but I'm certain Neil will go with Miku because of his experience. What better to way to carry on from Sunday than with a hat-trick against Barca.

    Isn`t he doubtful though? Thats why I left him out along with Sammy and Hooper. With those doubtful players fit, this would be my team

    I personally wouldn't start Mulgrew, even though we could use his deliveries, i feel Kayal would simply offer far more protection on the flank for matthews playing on the wrong side.

    Up front is another difficult choice if Hooper will indeed not make it, whether to choose sammy in behind Miku or Commons in behind sammy.

    Lustig Ambrose Wilson Mulgrew/Matthews
    Brown Wanyama Ledley Kayal Samaras
    Watt​

    This game is built for a workhorse like Watt to lead the line. If Hooper is fit I'd start him but failing that Watt would be my man.

    I'm so undecided whether we should go with Matthews or Mulgrew. Mulgrew is near on our only hope of scoring IMO (set pieces and crosses)... but Matthews has the pace to deal with their wide play. 50/50 for me. Mulgrew will get the nod from Lenny though I feel. If Sammy doesn't make it it's Commons on the left for me.

    If Hooper or Samaras doesnt make it id start Watt ahead of Miku 100 times out 100. Watt would actually cause them problems and do well I think.

    No thanks to Matthews at LB. We should simply play players in their proper positions.

    Just found out that my old man has managed to get me a ticket!! :celt_2:

    Really struggling to pick a line up. Barca are going to be much more up for it, doesn't matter if we're at home they can play their game anywhere they go.
    But we shouldn't be scared. Got to stand up from the word go.

    Forster

    Lustig Wilson Ambrose Mulgrew

    Brown Wanyama Kayal Ledley

    Commons

    Samaras (only if Hooper isn't fit)

    Now, If Hooper is fit he should start. If Sammy is fit he should start.
    Now that does leave a problem. Would you drop Commons? Think he could give us a real chance from a set play.
    Wanyama is a must and Ledley should be good to cover Mulgrew, as is Brown with Lustig.

    Anyway, me being forever the optimist, 2-1 for Celtic. Commons & Sammy:celt_2:

    I think Lennon will play the same tactics that we used in Barcelona, which was quite attacking. We were obviously forced to retreat into a defensive set up. Once again we will play narrow and try and show Barca down the flanks. They rarely take that option and cross it from wide areas, they tend to come back to the middle and play through the gaps between our defence and midfield. We have to be patient when we have the ball in possession, I would hate to see us panic and rush our passes especially in our own half(it will happen on occasions,it normally does). Its different when we quickly turnover the ball when their attacking, thats when we counter and will have to be direct with pace and power.

    My guess would be a narrow 4-4-1-1
    .................Forster

    Lustig Wilson Ambrose Mulgrew

    Brown Wanyama Kayal Ledley

    ...............Commons

    ...............Samaras


    Can't wait for this. Hopefully experience our greatest CL win:50::celt_2:
