I think the way it will work will mean we are at home first leg aren't we?

Last night the atmosphere wasnt its usual electric parkhead European night, id say it was nerves. We did need brown on at HT but i think bringing Sinclair off was a mistake, prob should have hooked Rogic he was poor and at least sinclair is an out ball with his pace.

Gordon was awful, pulled off oe class save but his distribution is so bad it isn't even funny, needs addressed, we will get nowhere in europe when your keeper is one of your weak links, personally id be ringing Sean Dyche and seeing which of his 3 england keepers aren't even making the bench

Can't disagree with that. Thought taking Sinclair off disrupted the system too much but injury to Christie didn't help. Europe in the new year is pleasing though.


Sinclair is rubbish. He adds nothing bar the odd tap in.

Rogic was worse on the night. We were badly exposed for the first goal because no one was tracking back helping Tierney. Sinclair does that reasonably well.

Does Carey not lie within the parish of Culfeightrim?

The original point made was that "parish teams" were more of a southern counties thing. Carey is still the only club within that parish. It is not the name of the village.

Is creggan a separate parish to randalstown?What other ones ned? I think moneyglass is it's own?

Glenravel. Carey?

Is Carey not a parish in it's own right? There's a big chapel in the middle of it. Unless it takes in some of Ballycastle but I don't think so? Glenravel would be too. There are no clubs or parishes for a good few miles round it.

I am almost 100% sure about Carey.

Parish teams is more of a south and west Ireland concept are they not? I canít think of any parish clubs. Usually itís a village or town club.

More than a couple in Antrim?

He'll need all the luck he can get. A lot of hot air been spoken here . There is no good soccer club in the world  going to take a punt on an unproven manager with no track record where the stakes are so high .

I suspect he'd have been far better off taking an Irish Soccer Club.

Of course he wasn't getting a "top"  job. We all have to start somewhere in our careers. Soccer managers the world over have worked their way up the ladder. Go take a look at Martin O'Neill's path in management or Brendan Rodgers' or Alex Ferguson's. JMG will be a success or not due to his ability, not because he picked an Irish or British club instead of going to the States. He does not have the profile (yet) in soccer to do like Lampard or Gerrard or other top players before, to be able to walk into a bigger job, but that does not mean he will be any less
Successful long term.

He has a head start on a lot of successful managers. Mourhino, Sarri, Wenger? At least McGuiness has played and managed his sport at the highest level. Won't make him any more or less successful but he has, I think, all the attributes to be a top soccer coach.

If he hits in the USA - the financial gain long term will be enormous and it wouldn't be completely mad (if successful) to see an Irishman manage the USA National Soccer team, if he made a name for himself in the MLS2 or whatever this outfit league is called, it's not beyond realm of possibility he'll be at the MLS sooner than many think.

Jimmy has the head screwed on, Derry City/Dundalk....all these teams will always be there. He makes it in the USA he's set for life.

Steady on there

Do you know who this is? He's an Irishman who has been a USL coach for 4 years now - who has won the USL Championship for the last 2 years.




He has won it once as manager.

Who would have thought tomorrow's match would have been a top of the table clash...

The narrative from media and Scottish football commentators has always been "We need a strong Rangers". We don't. Beating Aberdeen last Sunday in a dour final and hopefully beating Kilmarnock tomorrow is more satisfying than beating a weak rangers.

And kille go top

Would expect us to be 7 points ahead at the winter break but that will depend on us finding the scoring touch.

I thought McGregor was outstanding tonight, just grow and grows, future Captain.

Thought it took a few players ten minutes or so to get going. McGregor appeared possessed!

Superb tonight, proper European performance. Two great goals. McGregor, Christie and Tierney were superb and Edouard gave a very good Centre forward performance.

Celtic can hammer Hearts, Hibs and Rangers but are piss poor in Europe, even Rangers are more organised when playing similar european opposition that Celtic are facing.

Why come into this thread if all you can offer is negativity? Go and look at the respective European teams and their performances and league placings this season so far. Add in the fact that rangers last two European opponents had just sacked their managers. But then again don't let facts get in the way of a bit of mind numbing trolling.

The only thing that led to the incident was the thug who thought it was okay to throw the coin, against a background of years of abuse NL and others have received in Scotland. Basically, "know your place tarrier scum."
