Im genuinely worried about the result tonight

will likely be another 0-5. just have to take it on the chin and move on and also hope that Anderlecht don't get anything at home this evening.

Looking more like an 8-1

Celtic made PSG angry by taking the early lead.

That game just emphasises the gap in class between an elite team and a 4th seeded team. The most important result of the night was Bayern beating Anderlecht when they had nothing but pride to play for, there was a brief moment of anxiety when Anderlecht drew level late on but was deemed to be an offside goal.

 Always feared a scoreline like this but was hoping to get away with maybe 3or4, feck it we all know the difference in finances between Celtic and Europeís elite but hopefully can progress in Europa league, oh and pick up a decent centre half in the transfer window

Very naive defending.A lot of those goals were avoidable.We need a commanding goalkeeper and a quality centre half to organise and lead the defence.I still don't think Celtic should be losing 5, 6 or 7 goals to any team on this planet

Tony Barca beat PSG 6-1 last year, if a team that costs damn near a billion plays a team that cost 20 million it is going to be ugly, Rodgers refuses to park the bus, he is committed to playing attractive football and to his credit he refuses to play to keep the score down, me, I would have parked the bus and hit them on the break to keep the score down and possibly sneak a result here and there against the worlds best.

True if you go for to toe but shouldn't Celtic recognise their players are not at the level to go for to toe with psg, play defensively and counter attack?

We've played defensively before and lost heavily. Damned if you do, Damned if you don't. Our midfield and sloppy passing was the source of at least three goals. After that, clinical finishing did us.
BR has a style of play which he will only vary slightly. This got us a 5-0 at home against Astana, 3-0 away against Anderlecht and very close to a result against Bayern. We need to keep the faith. The Europa League is our benchmark at the moment. However, if this time next year we haven't shown progression and are still shipping goals as easily against better opposition, a rethink is required. That said, Neymar and Cavani will help dish out beatings to better teams this year.

No reason why Celtic cannot kick on and progress in the Europe well into the Spring. There have been good performances lost by lack of concentration and naive defending

I donít think we have the defenders for champ league level,boyata makes a lot of mistakes the one against Bayern was poor,the French papers Scored him1/10 from last night.simunovic only back from injury also didnít help matters overall Rodgers tactics and An average defence equals a hiding or two in Europe unfortunately.

A top quality goalkeeper and central defender are needed.Gordon was never good enough in Europe,and a top quality centre back would organise the defence.

Brendan also needs to consider parking the bus,something he says he will never do.
