Didn't play well last night against Anderlecht... It was a dire watch. I've been increasingly frustrated with this Celtic team this season. Sure, we qualified for the champions league and have managed to gain European football post Christmas. Yes Anderlecht have a larger budget and we are still unbeaten domestically etc. Etc.
But all that masks a very mediocre team that is over hyped by the Scottish press. The form of Sinclair has been poor, Armstrong and Forrest never turns up on the big occasion and the team is never honest about it's shortcomings when up against good sides. The praise PSG, Bayern and Anderlecht without looking at what they could of done better. Same old story of Scottish teams in Europe. Meet a team with any semblance of quality and they lose their nerve. Pish..


Bottom line, the team is good enough (by a country mile) for what's important....

Domestic domination

Europe is a sideshow for any club outside 4/5 countries

Quick search on the net says otherwise, Celtic have a larger budget on wages etc.

Funnily enough Enders I said most of that about a year ago about this Celtic team and wee Hoopz jumped in going on about this that and whatever. At the end of the day there are far better Celtic teams who won nothing. MoNs 2003 team come to mind

The dodgy , money laundering, terrorist funding, tax dodging weirdo said as much to the Celtic support years ago.

Celtic will spend enough to stay ahead in Scotland but Europe is just a bonus
