Tony I found a present for you on BBC website...

"When you think of all the success Brendan Rodgers has brought to this club and the great invincible run, he has been in charge of the two worst results in Celtic's history - 7-0 away at Barcelona and 5-0 tonight".

If you believe that defeats by two of the best teams ever assembled since soccer began are the two worst results in club history you are, quite frankly, an arsehole.

There isn't an international side that those two teams would not have demolished. What do you think the result would have been tonight against any other Scottish Club side, or the Scottish national team?
Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity

But in fairness he's right. You're one if the biggest d**kheads on this Board

I occasionally post on threads about soccer teams and county teams other than the ones I support but I just dont get t**ts like him who feel the need to post inane, uninspired crap like that. It's tedious, boring snd unimaginative.
It was men against bhoys tonight.... ;D
Do you mean jokes like that?!!

Yip, inane, boring, regurigated, uninspired repetition that is rapidly decreasing the enjoyment of these forums.
PSG were light years ahead of us. Their best player tonight, however, was not one of their multi million pound superstars but their 22 year old frenchman in midfield who cost nothing. That gives me hope that Celtic could find similar eventually. KTF.
 

The clown supports Liverpool ffs. Coming on slabbering about a team losing when your own team got humiliated in the league at the weekend. Bell end.

Up there with the knob who invaded the pitch in terms of attention seeking.

Defeat not unexpected last night, manner of it disappointing though.  Like last season in Barcelona we changed our shape and way of playing only to suffer a heavy defeat. 

I get that the defence was down to the bare bones and the manager wanted to protect them as well as maybe seeing a backs to the wall approach best for nicking a point but like Camp Nou the tactics resulted in us taking a hiding and not laying a glove on the opposition. 

In ways it is a taste of our own medicine when the financial advantage is the other way in Scotland but Anderlecht were always going to be the two games that determined our success in the group.  As such and with the value of hindsight we maybe should just go toe to toe with PSG and Bayern as it would mean we play a game we are familiar with and could not do any worse. 

Players also looked scared last night which was disappointing.  Great thing about Celtic Park down the years is that we fear no one but hey on we go, we wanted the glamour but the glamour can be merciless these days.

Poor performance and result much like Barca game last year we didn't play like we did against city at home much improvement needed.probably should have signed another defender would have helped.

We should have set up more defensively last night.Also the players seemed overawed from the first whistle.Need to learn from this.

A little bit of reality is needed, Barca and PSG regularly post 5-0's against teams with better players and bigger budgets than Celtic, why in God's name do we expect Celtic to hold them to 0-0? That type of a result will only happen once in a blue moon, not Rodgers fault. Even Juve couldn't stop Messi last night and we expect Celtic to close out PSG, its like Antrim taking on Galway or Kilkenny a hiding is always the most likely outcome. Take it learn from it and move on. At least none of Celtic's players behaved like the money grabbing tr**p Neymar. Thank fcuk Barca let him go, I hope he destroys PSG with his self delusional arrogance.

I still maintain we could have performed better but even at that would probably still have been on nil points this morning so I am not going to lose too much sleep over it.  As we all know it is the two games against Anderlecht that really are our group games.

What is wrong with Neymar earning what he can in what is now essentially a business ??

That PSG team were superb last night. It will be interesting to see how Bayern cope with them.

It's a moot point imo whether celtic could or should have done better, 5 nil was about right, the target is to finish ahead of Anderlecht who have a better squad and recent european record than Celtic.

Nothing but there's a lot wrong with his attitude to fellow professionals and the tramplike behaviour on the pitch. Although it is obscene when you earn more than you are your grandchildren would ever be able to spend to go chasing more.

Maybe a moot point but I would have liked us to play without fear after last seasons experience but then again first game and against a fantastic collection of footballers so hopefully shake that off a bit now as we go and start to build performances.  And yes will be up against it in every game to a greater or lesser degree but this is a competition where a lot of our young players can come of age so hopefully we can exceed our coefficient standing.
