A Brave Attempt Well Done Bhoys …


Celtic may not have won tonight but they again proved that if they apply themselves correctly on these big nights anything can happen , make no mistake the hoops were the better side tonight by a country mile , I don’t say this from a biased point of view but from a fact filled 96 mins …

The 1-2 result for Bayern Munich is secondary to the fact celtic run the German outfit ragged from Keiran Teirney to James Forrest on the wing and Scott Brown and Stuart Armstrong in the middle of the park to name a few , every ball was contested every pass closed down , the high press Brendan Rodgers implemented had the German champions reeling from start to finish…

Alaba was one off  Bayern Munichs player who must have been desperate to leave parkhead ASAP ,he really had to work hard tonight with the likes of Teirney and Forrest dragging him around the pitch…

It’s not often we can say we outplayed one of the super clubs , but on tonight’s evidence we more than deserved to think we can mix it , especially at our home patch , the plaudits again will go to the terrific support the celtic fans gave for 96 mins, even their appreciative applause of Ayern Robbin late in the second half was a show of class to a opponent …

When it’s all said and done though Bayern Munich left with all 3 points , like highwaymen they stormed in and stormed out to progress to the next stage , one things for sure they know they were in a helluva game , of that Celtic Football Club can be proud..

It would be easy to single out individual players for praise , I’m sure we all know who if you watched the game or were lucky enough to be their , but I’d rather congratulate the whole team for the effort , what Brendan Rodgers is building is a young exciting group of footballers who I’m sure will only get better in the coming years ….

The goal was always to perform well in the games and have European football beyond the holiday period coming up , 2 of the 4 games celtic have played really well tonight and the game in Brussels , 3 Rd spot looks likely with a home game to finish at parkhead , the goal difference alone should see us through to the Europa league , unless anderlecht win or take something in Germany 🇩🇪 and make the parkhead game interesting , of course the free scoring French side Psg May score a few against Celtic in Game 5 but we shall see where it all stands in 3 weeks…

The team can be very proud of tonight’s game they gave 110 per cent to a man , ok some fans may want to have a go at Boyata and Gordon but they both redeemed themselves in the rest of the game ..

I’d rather look at the game as a whole in fact the whole campaign were in a group with 2 of possibly 4 of the best teams in the entire competition,Barcelona and Real Madrid being the obvious 2 others , we should be proud of where the team are going Brendan Rodgers is building a fine squad , theirs plenty reasons to be excited for the years ahead …
