    For those who are in love.....
    Going by flashscore, they have....

    Two 33 year old wingers
    A centre mid that turns 35 in a matter of week's
    A left back that turns 33 in a matter of week's
    A centre back that turns 35 in a matter of week's..

    That was all starters tonight and outfield. Five outfield player's and a side full of journeymen at the end of their careers..

    They'll be experienced and majorly fly in my opinion but a side like that that cost practically fuckall....we really should be doing..

    We've a young quick side. Our tempo and energy should tell if not away, then definitely back at Celtic Park with the crowd with us..

    Optimistic from what I've seen of them. Maccabi missed some sitters and were done by a diving penalty that was soft as * and a flap by a daisy cutter palmed right out to a Cluj player..

    A lot of these older players are South Americans and a Portuguese and you're right they will have every trick in the book. Petrescu's no mug and will deffo try and use this to throw us. Keep the head and use our pace and we should cause them plenty!!

    Think someone said to me that Tel Aviv had a much better team, higher coefficient and were a much more intimidating prospect. That and the heat and conditions there, we may actually have done ourselves a big favour getting these guys instead, especially if they're aging and starting to feel the quick succession of games

    Think it will be, but as mentioned maybe bigger not to play him, but that's Lennys fault for not putting him in before.

    If Lenny didn't trust him against this weaker opposition how can he throw him in against far better opposition. Made a rod for both his and the players back if it all goes pear shaped.

    Maybe safer going Ajer and Simo if it's a 4, Bitton for me is a risk.

    It's going to be a tough one for me, but hoping the bhoys can step up.

    Just read that they got humped out of the Europa 5-2 by Dudelange last season. Things cant have changed that much since...happy with them over Maccabi tbh.

    I’d keep it tight away, play a 5 at the back that can become a 3..Forrest in a free role..

    A real step up in quality for this one. Watched a bit of the game in Israel and Cluj don't take many prisoners. Will be a hard tie.

    It will be harder but we defo should do them over two legs. They are 288th in UEFA ranking, few spots above Nomme Kalju. I know that the UEFA ranking is bullshit but it kinda shows that we are definetely the stronger team. Couple of years back they went for Gregory Tade from St. Johnstone and he was their main striker for two years ffs.

    CELTIC set up a Champions League third-round qualifying tie against CFR Cluj after overseeing Nomme Kalju.

    The Hoops thrashed their Estonian opponents 7-0 over two legs as Marian Shved bagged his first goal for the club.

    And they will take on Romanian giants CFR in Cluj-Napoca next week for the first leg.

    The game will kick off at 7pm on Wednesday August 7 and will take place in the Stadionul Dr. Constantin Rădulescu stadium.


    Cluj will then travel to Glasgow the following week to face Neil Lennon’s men at Parkhead on Tuesday August 13

    Do we know the pool of clubs we could face in the final round, should all expected seeds go through?

    Doable, but certainly a step up

    Will be a shambles if we go out to Cluj..

    Won't be hostile either. Their ground is just under 24 thousand and they've had just over 11 thousand in once in qualifying against Maccabi..

    Had 8 against Astana. 5 against Dinamo Bucharest and 2 against Poli..

    Quick look and it's only due to be about 20 degrees by kick off time so won't be anything like the journey, crowd and humidity we would've faced travelling to Israel..
