Braga v Celtic

It's a tough game and the team seem evenly matched in many respects so it's very hard to call. But given our crap European away record, I don't expect a great result tonight but hope we can keep it tight for the second leg in Glasgow. Prediction: Braga 1 Celtic 0.

  1. Trying to follow the game on stv text commentary I thought it would have at least been on bbc medium wave. Not too confident but I thought Ki was reasonable in the world cup and was amazed at Braafied being in the final. Lets see what the new signings can do. Looks like lennon does not rate Rasmussen. Maybe Samaras up front on his own.

  2. Very disappointing result. Can't see Celtic winning 4-0. Now in the play off round of Europa league I think. This might mean a very difficult match to get into the group stages.

    Strachan was successful after Artmedia and it is early days. Main priority is the league.

  3. Disappointing performance as well. Suspect it was too much to expect a team to gel as half of them have never played together. I think Lennon has a big, immediate challenge in getting rid of players he doesn't want to allow the players he's brought in to gel quickly. Let's hope he's up to it, because a third failure to top a weakened Rangers does not bear thinking.

  4. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think Neil Lennon is the right choice of manager. I think we need someone with experience.

    Even given this I don't think it should be too hard to win the league. But then it shouldn't have been too hard last season, or the one before that.
