I would be great if someone brought down the english teams to the earth so, GO CELTIC!! bounce

Today is also:

Celtic 19:45 Arsenal
Sporting 20:45 Fiorentina
KÝbenhavn20:45 APOEL
Sheriff 21:45 Olympiacos
Timişoara 21:45 Stuttgart

Viola - Sporting is also a intresting game and I hope viola goes through so that Italy won't get only 3 teams in CL in the future.

Maybe even this year could be "the revenge" of italian football in Europe...?

Aresnal were lucky tonight. They were the better team no doubt but the manner of the 2 goals was really hard on Celtic.

I would agree about the first goal but not the second. It was great play from Arsenal and Celtic couldn't deal with it.

Celtic last season against Arsenal last season would be a much tighter affair but this is not the same Arsenal; they've fixed the dressing room problems, the young guns are becoming better players; they were able to match the physical game of Celtic and outplay them with speed and passing. On top of that, I think Arsenal were fairly average.

I can't say I didn't expect it; Celtic have little quality whatsoever. McGeady is probably their best player and if I were Ireland manager, I wouldn't start him. That's how lowly the SPL has become in terms of quality.

Agreed. TM's game-plan almost worked to perfection, luck just was not on our side. Ah well, Europa League scratch

Hope so, they have to do well this year so they keep hold of the fourth champions league spot in terms of the UEFA Coefficient ranking. Good result for Fiorentina though really with a 1 man advantage they should not have conceded the second. Good goal by Gilardino.

what gameplan... Suspect

I know Celtic are your team so I don't want to be too harsh but...with those tactics, they had no chance of outscoring Arsenal. Yes, on another night Celtic might have nabbed a 1-0 win, but it would have been an extreme injustice.

The problem I have with Tony Mowbray and gameplans is that he couldn't mastermind a decent enough West Brom out of relegation and was outclassed by Stoke and Hull who had far poorer teams in my opinion.

My mother is a Celtic fan and I'll always have a soft spot for the team because of that alone but...I've absolutely no faith in the current regime.

The game-plan of playing one up.

Soaking up a lot of pressure.

Besides the luck, the two Arsenal goals, what was the next best effort on goal? Denilson after the break?

My point is although Celtic did not have any clear cut chances, either did Arsenal, and luck was on there side.

The gameplan was about a clean sheet, and maybe niking a goal. 0-0 or 1-0.

Almost worked but as i said, luck was not on the side.

Let's say Celtic was very poor, and Arsenal just controlled the game and scored two 'culo' goals.

I think when you see the Celtic team, very very average players, ok they have the passion, but when you can't pass a ball 10 yards... what are you looking for in the CL?

Anyway, maybe we'll meet Celtic in the Europa League ... I smell a classic.

Yeah, you can't criticise the effort.

I don't know why Mowbray decided he needed 5 men instead of 4 across the midfield. Arsenal only play with 3 so whatever formation Celtic played, Arsenal would be outnumbered.

I just think it would have been better to play the pressing game and just have McDonald on the pitch and give McGeady a freer role. No point throwing Samaras up on his own when your three midfield men in the centre can't outplay Arsenal's three. If the idea was to get crosses into Samaras then it was foolish because Clichy and Sagna are top notch.

I agree that they had to do something different because while they have bags of effort, they don't have the quality. I also agree that Arsenal didn't create clear cut chances but if they played like they did against Everton, it could have been 4 or 5.

That's way harsh on Celtic. We're talking about a 200m team vs a 20m team. The result should have been far greater in that respect so Celtic deserve credit for the fact it took 2 fortunate goals to defeat them.

The goals conceded were very unlucky, but overall Arsenal did attack and create more chances than Celtic. Before the match I thought a realistic result would have been 0-0 or an epic 1-0 win for Celtic but it was not to be. Is hard to believe Celtic can over turn the tie at the Emirates and progress but who knows. Like you said Bridge-Bhoy, perhaps the Europa League is better for Celtic this season.

Just out of curiousity, how have Celtic fans taken Mowbray's appointment this season? Do you think he's the right man for the job?

Coming up soon..... my hometown team Levski will battle Debrecen of Hungary in Sofia. Hope for a good result!

Camo Levski!!!

The gameplan to keep a clean sheet? Arsenal completely monopolised the game. They controlled the possession and they had the only chances. How can Celtic win the tie when they are just relying on Arsenal not to score? The way Arsenal play and the firepower they have, it is near impossible for them not to score. One oppurtunity is bound to go in over 180 minutes and when it does Celtic are finished. Celtic were unlucky to draw Arsenal. They were unlucky to concede the goals but luck favours the brave. If one of the teams was going to get lucky and score a lucky goal it was going to be Arsenal because they were the only ones even trying for a goal. I honestly shudder what the Celtic gameplan at the Emirates will be.

Bobbi, the fans love Tony Mowbray so far, they love his attacking philosphy.

If Celtic win the SPL, and get a decent run in the Europa league, then they will worship him considering the style of football that will have been played.

Yep Mowbray is well liked here. It will be interesting to see how his tactical style works in the SPL. It could spell the beginning of something new.

Lyon 4-0 Anderlecht at Half Time.

Amazing performance.

All 3 new signings (Gomis, Bastos & Lisandro) have all scored.

Lyon - Anderlecht 5-1. It's bad for Belgian football, but I like it. Shame of Europe! I hope we meet them in the Europa League.

Disgusting, and then to smile at the fans/camera after. Really, really unfair and I felt sorry for Celtic fans at that moment.

Yeah it was a pretty obvious dive. Normally Eduardo is one of the nicest and fairest players in football today, really strange for him to pull this type of thing of.
