Champions League 2012/13

Recommended Posts

.... at least Celtic already knew what it felt like to ship three goals to a team wearing black and white. I reckon St Mirren have helped in Celtic's Champions League preparations. I hope Lenny thanks us in his post-match interview.

Bad result for us. Had they still been in the tie they would have rested players for the QF, which is the weekend before the 2nd leg.

As they are now out, the most important game of their season is now the Scottish Cup QF against us.

Oh well, we can still beat them :)

Hope Ambrose plays in the cup, he's mince.

Been all over the place since the start of the game.

The point being is that now the tie is as good as over they will have only our game to focus on. bag.gif

The really good thing is that our big game is on the 17th of March. We don't want players injured playing a wee quarter final.

Don't think that result really alters much. Ahead of tonight's first leg, Lennon rested a good few of his first choice XI at Inverness, and they gubbed ICT. Lennon could rest Izaguerre and play Kayal, rest Hooper and play Stokes and/or Samaras. Forrest or Commons... no big deal. Come the quarter final, even at 0-3 down, Lennon will have to think about the return leg - he won't want to go there and get a pasting, so he'll need to juggle line ups between our game and the Turin return.

I'd rather he played his first choice XI anyway. Guys like Watt and Co seem hungrier and more up for it anyway.

Much as I hate to say this. I felt Celtic were cheated last night.

Not suggesting an Italian team and a Spanish ref would be involved in corruption or match fixing are you?
