    2 different games totally. Incomparable I would say. Defenders were not shy of roughing up a striker. But worked both ways. Forwards gave as good as they got. Didn't play for a dive and the slightest brush on an opponent now pulls a foul.

    Can't deny they both play lovely football but it does kind of make you feel a little sick at the thought of either of these oil rich clubs winning the big one through means which I consider unfair and epitomises everything that is wrong with the modern game.

    I think they'd take 3 of Barca at the minute at home anyway.

    PSG - City would be a great game guaranteed goals galore :50:

    Ah yeah absolutely, just the way it is now and we need to accept it. I'm glad I have my football DVD's covering the good stuff from the 50s through to the late 90s.

    I hope in a few years every single one of PSG's starting XI costs over £100million. Sure if you've got the money, spend it.

    To be fair we aw moaned we were in the group of death last year and were playing potential winners, man city were papped out to a not brilliant Monaco side in last 16, and barca got pumped out with juventus in last 8 after getting a few dodgy decisions to overcome a PSg 4-0 defeat in last 16,
    Honestly think Spurs , city juventus , Napoli and a few others would give PSg a run for their money, that said a don't think we would lose 6 and 7 nil to any of these teams.
    Funny ol game

    he needs to make his mind up what hes gonna do before he gets the ball, thats what all the good players do

    hes stronger on his right so when that ball comes in he touches it right and hits it or takes it in his stride like neymar and hits it

    maybe hes not as good as i thought he was ;)

    I hate football.

    I hate the prospect of a Man City and PSG final, with no history.

    I hate the fact Bayern fans were charged £100 for the away trip to Anderlecht.

    I hate us having to play 3 qualifiers while last year Leicester strolled straight in at the first attempt.

    Football is horrendous

    Oporto were the champions league winners 2004 , we matched them all the way in Seville in 2003, even as short a time as that ago you really believed Celtic could beat any team in the world unfortunately not the case anymore

    They were a cracking team, even teams like Valencia, Anderlecht, Basel and so on, they weren't the best of the best but they could compete on their day, O'Neill's team when you think of it should have done much more in Europe. We weren't far behind the Liverpool side that done the cup treble in 2001. Trying not to be too biased but our side between 2000-2004 was about level with them. Should have won in Seville, * Porto *.

    Yup true.

    If we get job done in MD6 then EL will be interesting. It's our level now. Will be great competitive football will be buzzing for the games.

    Tonight i was dreading , just knew it was coming.

    Agree mate, just saying all this " you score 4 we will score 5 ". nostalgia wasn't always the case , they played great fitba like the team does now domestically , but like the team the now on the way to 9 in a row also played poorly and knew how to grind out a1-0 with a bit of physicality

    a think your right mate, that's why it's frustrating , honestly with team just now on top of our game eg Bayern at Home, man city approach I really don't fear any Europa league teams and the games will be enjoyable , my mate said to me tonight " if you didn't enjoy that game tonight and one at Celtic park your not a real football fan", anyone that enjoyed the 2 PSg games tonight is not a real Celtic fan,
    Man Utd waltzed the Europa league last year, outplayed by Basle, the gap between the 2 is very big but still a great tournament
    Funnily enough it was Basle we lost to in champions league play off Seville year, is it a sign, no getting carried away but anyone know where final is?

    A know mate 4 next season, awrite saying its a diddy team first round, campaign starts June now , celtic don't get a break anymore, 7 regulars in Scotland team international weekends and I bet there's no other teams in champions league at present that kicked aff their season when we played those clowns linfield barring maybe Maribor and we are competing for all 3 domestic honours, that's what makes the 64 unbeaten more remarkable

    EL final is in Lyon this season.

    The Lyon Lions has a nice ring to it.

    I know it's fantasy talk but if Scotland had of made the World Cup Finals next seasons 6 consecutive midweek qualifying CL games would have been a * joke for Celtic and clearly not an equal playing field but this is sadly the direction everything is heading, won't be long before England, Spain and Germany will be getting 5 teams going straight in to the groups
