12 former Euro champions compete for Champions League


There has been a bit of revisionist nonsense expressed recently which appeared to damn the achievements of the current team by comparing them to the great Martin O’Neill side, but Martin’s team were known to struggle in qualifying on occasion.

Let the record show, four wins from four games.  Three clean sheets, two of which were achieved away from home.  The remainder of the tournament will present stiffer challenges but Celtic are a completely different team than the side which lost heavily in Utrecht two years ago.

This is what planned, sustainable, progress tastes like.

The Champions League proper will be difficult for Celtic to win; no fewer than 12 former European Champions battle to reach the Wembley final, but we are one of them and we’re there on merit.  After a four year absence the excitement of those early Champions League nights at Celtic Park against Rosenborg, Porto and Juventus has returned to the club.

Bring it on.

    Both fabulous players.



    I prefer Joe Walsh’s song writing to Bernie Leadons



    Hail Hail

  2. Good to see we got rid of that big dumpling Wilson to Ipswich when no-one was looking and brought in the smoothly efficient and mobile Kelvin as his replacement.



    Doppelgaenger CSC.

  3. The guitar on the a cappella version of Hotel California is disappointing to the point where you just want to say ‘you shouldn’t have bothered’.



    Hail Hail

    Marvel Comics?

    Boyd that got done at Brechin for sec singin. Callaghan, Mc Killop, Mc Creadie. Brawley? I knew a man called Brawley he was brot up in the Falls Rd.

  7. Snake Plissken on

    I’d rather have Tony Watt than Jordan Rhodes.



    I’ve seen both players and think our Bhoy is the better player. Far more mobile and more hard working and doesn’t cost a stupid fee.

    No wonder I didn´t know who you were talking about. McKillop and Mc Creadie are hun names no ?



    A wee slap on the wrist. No surprises. It was the filming of their behaviour by non police huns that seems to have upset them the most



    Mhhhh…………. I wonder why



    Hail Hail

  10. Any news from Hampden on Mcmoists and Chas Greens disrepute hearings?


    Or will they release it when the CL draw is made?




  11. Sixteen roads to Golgotha on

    Celtic have earned all the other SPL clubs an extra £1million payment from UEFA.



    It’s on the website now so it is.



    Yo-ho-ho Sevco,yous get nothing!

    Joe Walsh

    Gang. One of those forgotten bands who did not get enough credit.

  13. VogueP

    I pondered whether I should have the first pic of these two on my blog, but hey were all inclusive…..aren’t we!



    All the Hs



    Hail hail

    Uv got to question Rhodes ambitions. Years in the Lg 2 in England with Blackburn or 10 years of UEFA Champions League with Celtic?



    Tony Watt or Rhodes? What a shocking stupid question!!

  15. Sixteen roads to Golgotha on

    They already get half a million,so that is £1.5million divided by 11 = around £136,000 for each club.



    Not bad,not bad indeed.



    Hahaha Keevins.
