Aye, it's not a genuine Champions League anymore - as close to a 4 country cartel as UEFA are able to get away with. The Scottish Champions (and champions of every country) should have one automatic place in the groups, and the coefficient should kick in thereafter. But of course UEFA know this and aren't interested.

Never understood why (like ourselves), Celtic play a weird shape in midfield. This 3-4 central players then Forrest wide right seems strange, do they not have a player that can play wide left? Same with us until this season with Boyle wide right and then everyone else in the centre. Leaves huge gaps for them and puts a lot of onus on Tierney, similarly puts pressure on Stevenson for us.

Ah right sorry, I've got you now.

Suduva and Spartaks were part of the Champions Path of the Europa League which means they were both initially in the Champions League qualifiers and dropped down into the Europa League. Funnily enough they were both knocked out by Red Star Belgrade in successive rounds.

Neither of them have a co-efficiency as high as Molde.

When we have been playing Boyle wide on the right, it’s a right wing back position with Lewis doing the same on the left. I think that’s what Celtc do with Forrest and Tierney playing the wing back roles

Have to say it irks me to look at the clubs which still have to win another tie to make the Champions League, never mind some that are out.
Ajax, Dinamo Kiev, Benfica, Red Star & Dinamo Zagreb used to win stuff in Europe. AEK & PAOK were always a test and I suppose Salzburg, BATE and Videoton have come into money to some extent.
Spartak, Celtic, Fenerbahce, Standard & Malmö were also decent at times in the good old days.
To think Brian Glanville called the English Premier "The Greed Is Good League" in its early days.

Caught the 2nd half tonight and said to my mate that SJM was exactly the type of player that could've/might've made the difference for them tonight !. Ok, no-one official from Septic said anything derogative about SJM but their axxe-hole 'Best supporters in the world' were here, there and everywhere telling the world that SJM 'wasn't good enough for Septic'/'Squad-player at best' along with the belter -'We'll get him for nowt come January so Hibs are f*****d if they don't give him to us now' !. If the powers-that-be at 'Darkheid' had actually bothered to read any of his past interviews they'd also have cottoned-on to the fact that, apart from being a top-quality player, SJM is also very ambitous and that he was more than happy at Hibs because he was wanted (and loved) here ! If Lawell & Co don't think modern-day footballers don't read fan-sites then they're bigger axxe-holes than their support !

Pretty sure I’ve seen Celtic play Forrest in front of Lustig. Similarly I’ve seen Efe or Whittaker played at right back with Boyle in front (although that has stopped now, haven’t seen that since last season).

Even with playing them at wing backs, it’s just a wee bit strange that they are retained within the team even when the position doesn’t quite suit them.

Pleased they're out of the Champions League - it means they won't have their bank balances ballooned once more, but can continue to contribute toward improving the coefficient.

I find it risible that they're pissing and whining about "lack of investment" being a key reason they haven't qualified. Perhaps now they have an idea of what it's like for the rest of Scottish Football trying to keep pace with their finances! But I'd rather we are where we are than take the sectarian pound and use that to build an empire of bigotry, smugness and paranoia :thumbsup:

Rather annoying article here, albeit the bits explaining the split of the money are quite interesting:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45190227

The whole tone is that Celtic have 'lost' money - which is nonsense. Obviously going out has prevented them from earning a lot more, but they haven't lost money as they aren't worse of than they were yesterday. This line in particular bugged me:

"That is £11m gone already. But the haemorrhaging does not stop there."

Haemorrhaging?! They're ****ing minted.

Also, what's the issue here? It should be about them missing out on the prestige and huge games that come with the group stages, had they got there - why does the extra money not coming in matter? In European terms, they had lots of revenue from the CL group stages in the last two years, and haven't used it to try and be more competitive in the tournament. In Scottish terms, they still have way more money than the rest of the teams put together and multiplied several times over, so no real problems there.
