    how many from corners, set pieces, and most from lesser teams, and naka had a better forward line to play to, and the goals where from the real forward players, at that time, skippy waded in with plenty.

    Nakamura played some outstanding nights for us in the CL, Commons hasn't had the chance to play in Europe yet so I would wait till see what he's like against the best teams in the world.

    I think Naka has better Crossing, Passing, Dribbling and Free-kicks but Commons has better Long shots, Finishing, Work-rate. Commons offers more as a team player but Naka was more technically gifted.

    Commons is a great player and so was Naka, its a tough one. Went for Naka because Commons has been here 4 months and we cant judge him in tha space of time compared to Naka but one thing we do now hes got a good * finish! You always felt save when Naka had the ball like he wasent going to lose it.

    Has to be Nakamura for me. The guy's touch was unbelievable and he always managed to retain the ball, his passing was terrific. Just a better all round player I reckon.

    Deluded naka fans living off a free kick vs Manchester United.

    Commons offers more to the team and is a lot more consistent and look how many goals hes scored in a few months ffs and has already done it in big games vs Rangers where as Naka scored 1 time and did * all else in a OF game. Naka was better when the ball was dead and the players were 10 yards away from him. 7 times out of 10 he was a empty jersey.

    Commons shows how useful the simple art of having a tremendous dig on you is. It's rare in the Scottish game these days. Murdo must still be the biggest shot of any Celtic player I have seen though. His shot was frightening. He could score from 40 yards with his weak foot!

    Naka, he had that 'magic' about him.

    Patrick McCourt + Kris Commons = Lionel Messi

    Nakamura. More ability overall. So much of our play went through him while he was here.

    Was also absolutely fantastic at keeping possession, something Commons lacks.
