We have five good players, one good player on the wane (SB). The rest are mediocre and in vital positions including four of the defensive five. If Celtic had bought a proper RB and LB we would be still in the CL. Downsizing has happened for the last two seasons. We have lost around seven first team players who have not been replaced with anywhere near the same quality. We are playing with fire.

So a United Ireland is to be decided by anti biotics and prescriptions :o

Similar issues swung the Scottish referendum a few years ago.

How?

If ever a result exemplified the Scottish league and the talents of the players in it, this was it. Realistically Celtic are probably a mid table League one side. Scottish Prem is probably at same level as Irish league. Hence why they walk it year in year out.

Tired lazy comment. The real truth is that this result exemplified why Neil Lennon shouldn't have got the job. Spends 10m on 2 defenders and leaves them on the bench only to see 3 crucial goals conceded (i dont mind the 4th as they had to throw caution to the wind at the end)


Don't engage that trolling cnut. He married his sister ffs.

Second that.

Porto and Basel also knocked out tonight. There’s a lot of teams all at the same level.
Cluj have won the last two Romanian leagues.

Doesn’t matter. I’ve never even heard of that team before ffs

You'd never heard of them? Should have beaten them 7-0 then!  ::)
They were only an average team. That was a shambles last night. Defence is priority now as it has been for about 5years. We never f**king learn.

Antrim / Re: ANTRIM HURLING

It wasn't easy on the eye but I for one do not give a flying feck.Our club was dead for 5 years with no hurling at all and one of the best pitches in Antrim.It might be a Junior B but to me we may as well have lifted the Liam McCarthy tonight.The Latharna Og club have had to put up with few other clubs have had to over the years with the exception of St Endas and Ardoyne.Easy enough to knock it from the lofty perch of Dunloy.


Great effort from Latharna Og. Hope  they can keep it going.

Handy win tonight for Celtic and good to see Griff get a goal, would be great to qualify for the group stage but a bit of work to do yet!

Good goals, especially McGregor's. Third round guaranteed now, where it will be a step up. The Estonians are probably a level below Sarajevo.

On whar basis would Sevco collapse financially again? Hardly busting the bank signing superstars?

Busting the bank? They can't get credit at a bank ffs!
They have signed something like 20 players since Gerrard has arrived. Transfer fees or not that is a lot of monthly outlay on top of what they had.
Just to stay afloat last year they had to borrow money from directors and from Close Brothers at exorbitant rates. And that was with Europa League revenue as well. Add in several court case losses to Mike Ashley and other possible litigation from others for breach of contracts.They are probably not close to collapse but are walking a precarious line, added to the fact their main "investor", King, is only in it for his own gain.
There is either something very shady going on, quelle suprise, or they have not learned from old lessons.
But otherwise all is hunky dory!

A pittance.
He plays in the SPL!


Your point is?

I think his point is the SPL is a very minor league in Europe and thus being a decent player in the SPL doesn’t mean you can cut it at Premier League level and that £20m odd is around Tierney’s level...

Just a guess but I’m sure michaelg will clarify!
Birds of a feather ,,,, :)

I'm sure Arsenal would not be offering personal terms of £20m,  £5m p/a for 4 years if they thought Tierney couldn't hack it in the EPL. Im also sure they have seen him hack it at CL, EL and international  levels.
Translate salary into transfer fee worth, then £25m is a pittance.

Exactly, Tierney has played in and cut it in the CL. Obviously, Arsenal are looking at the bigger picture i.e. the actual player and his capabilities. Anyone with an ounce of sense could see VanDijk was a cut above and destined for the top "despite" only playing in Scotland. I would have preferred he went to 
one of the better leagues like Spain or Italy.

A good start this evening on the long road journey to the CL elite.I  would've thought a Balkan league champions such as Sarajevo would have something more about them, perhaps they were almost as as rusty as Celtic were. Some tired legs in the last 1/4, that was one heavy pitch.

Potentially our trickiest first round game in Europe for a while. Three good goals.

He would be mad not to go if Arsenal or some other top club went for him.

True, ironic that Scotland has 2 fantastic left backs - probably the best 2 about, in Tierney and Robertson of Liverpool.

Do they though? One is a good left back in Scottish football and the other is genuinely world class.

As suggested previoulsy £30m for Tierney is ridiculous! I'd say £20m would be decent money for him. Also a record for Scotland!

Tierney has a lot of experience. CL, EL, international. Has he captained Scotland. Compare that to the Crystal Palace fella who went to United. 3million would be a steal for KT
It all boils down to the league he's been plying his trade in.

It doesn't. It's a factor along with his age, position he plays, how good he is, nationality. He has played against top class opposition in Europe and been a first team regular for 4 years, playing well over 150 games and he is a senior international player. He is regularly one of Celtic's best players. Contrast that to Wan Bissaka and the only factors to his disadvantage are he's not English and he doesn't play in England. So if Wan Bissaka is worth £50m then KT should be worth similar. I know Celtic won't get that but anything less than £25m is derisory unless there is a large % sell on like or better than Celtic had with Van Dijk.

The pundits agree that Tierney would cut it in any EPL team or league.

Fuckit £50m then!!!

 ::) ::)

I’ll go out on a limb here but I would say that tierney is already a better player than robertson. People might disagree but you’ll be agreeing before the season is out. If he goes for less than 40 million it’s an absolute steal by arsenal. Tierney has everything robertson has but he’s also stronger and better in the air.

I love Tierney but Robertson is better......just now. Tierney is younger and potentially still to hit his best. Until 18 months or so ago Robertson wasn't guaranteed first choice for Liverpool. Robertson is a much better crosser of a ball but possibly not as good defensively (not much in it).
Tierney needs to be careful where he goes for future development. Klopp has done wonders for Robertson. Anything north of £20m with add ons for Tierney would be normally acceptable but he is a good left back and they are a rare breed, so £25m plus wanted.
For those above who obviously don't follow Scottish football Celtic got £20m for Dembele last year.

Andy Robertson scored a cracker for Scotland tonight.

Was also at fault for the Cyprus goal. However, definitely a stand out in that Scottish team. Only McGregor and Fraser come close in terms of ability.

Unfortunately it happens on all the soccer threads. Some Liverpool fans see fit to come onto the Celtic thread and bullshit!
Nowt wrong with a bit of ribbing but when the likes of your man OTB and others jam the thread with constant snideness it becomes boring as f**k.

Some clowns on here trying to wind up or just spew up crap they read somewhere else...

NL has been offered the job because Celtic feel he's the best candidate available to them, too many people judging him and they don't know him or anything about him. They'll be lining up next season waiting on Celtic to lose their first match so they can say "told you so".  He's a very intelligent guy who knows what he's doing, judge him when the season is over next year when they've played his way and his players...Ohh and being a Catholic from the North of Ireland doesn't make him sectarian or a bigot.
AFAICS, for the most part Celtic supporters judge Neil Lennon on his capability to be the next Celtic manager for the next 2 years and for the most part he was by far the less desired candidate. This had nothing to do with  a knowing or not knowing,  because knowing or not knowing has fck all to do with it, yet you keep bringing up or alluding to that you know the real Neil Lennon or that somehow knowing his inner goodness equates to qualifying as being suitable  as the next Celtic manager.
Personally I have a respect Neil Lennon and on a managerial aspect I even think he did an incredible job at Bolton to keep them up when all and sundry said they were a doomed team. 
But now that he has been given the job the discussion is over and I hope he lives up to the big task ahead.

The big task? They’ve won all before them domestically for years while Rangers were kicked out, they’ve had it easy. Rangers Aberdeen and the rest shouldn’t count even if they keep the same team.

No competition in Scotland? Granted Celtic should have, and did, win the league for the past 8 seasons. Cups are a different matter. As far as I can see Celtic lost a few league games over the course of this season. In one off games anything can happen which makes the treble treble remarkable. It hasn't been done anywhere before. Man utd with their unfair advantage in the 90's didn't do it, Barca haven't done it, PSG and Man City financially doped  haven't done it.
