ER....yes....well , some EPL fans seem to have lost their way. Maybe the BBC should colour code the topics, green for Celtic , red for Man U. Anyway, back on subject, I thought Celtic played very well, just "out-foxed" by a smarter team. Oh those Italians ! never were ones to let fair play get in the way.
I cannot blame ManU for being a a little reserved, credit to them for not conceding over 1, but Real were awful in the 2nd and have now have 2 treat the return leg professionally and stay 1 goal on top.Maybe *****VanPersie***** can make a difference in a CL match too, we shall see.But Real reminded me of Brazil over a week ago, simply lazy after seizing the initiative - poor from the attack!
What a slack 2nd half in Madrid! Wasted chances too! Glad for Dortmund also grabbing their late equalisier at Shaktar, they are clear favourites now.But Real, lazy lazy! Conceded from a corner yes, but after *******CR7's******* goal couldn't score 1 or 2 in a whole hour?
Kris Commons was very unprofessional to criticise a fellow teammate so publicly as if he is the team manager. Thisis a manager's job to criticise his players not for a fellow player to slag off a team mate like Commons has done.
I'm pretty sure this is one of Dortmund's or Bayern's year, will be very interesting in May.
@296Yes, but I would say proper ' class ' exists in other leagues. Maybe not so much the French or Dutch ones but they're excused because the stars go where the money, passion or mix of both are now. So Spain, Italy, Germany and England.The EPL is of course all about the £££'s. 50 of them to get into your average Top5 club stadium in fact.
Its the referee Its the referee Its the referee Its the referee Its the referee Its the referee is all you hear from Celtic whenever things don't go their way like they do in the spl every week. Celtic did not lose to a solitary dodgy goal or penalty last night, they got pumped 3-0 at home.They are clutching at straws big time by suggesting things would be different had it not been for the ref
Typical Lennon and media coverage. All season on the BBC and SKY a weekly topic involving all British games has been.. Holding at corners! Last night was no different than what occurs every saturday the only difference was it involved an Italian team so its the old xenophobia pathetic. Oh and if you look at the game stats Juventus contributed as much as Celtic only they took their chances.
#233 Bradford have done the whole 'EPL' thing, its not all its cracked up to be. One team running away with the league, poor atmosphere and un-educated plastic fans. Proper fans and days out exist in the lower leagues
@294 The Italians know how to do it and get away with it. If someone like Scott Brown 'gives some back' it'll end in a murder enquiry!
don't understand where the ref is to blame ? It isn't like he gave Juve the free kicks when it was happening, maybe the forward should have given what he was getting to get in a better position instead of appealling all the time, after all isnt footy a contact sport ??
Juve were cheating a bit last were they not? Still, even without the grappling Juve defense last night, Celtic would still have lost. The facts are plain I'm afraid, as so many people on here have stated, Celtic play against inferior opposition week in week out. There is no challenge for the Bhoys anymore, and that shows when they come up against top European quality.
A lot of rubbish being talked on here. UEFA needs to ask itself some difficult questions about what it understands to be foul play. I would also seriously ask questions about the integrity of the referee. Juve should have had at least one sending off.Celtic also have to take some responsibility for the defeat, but refereed properly, this could have all been very different.
It was embarrassing to see Celtic die so painfully on the pitch last night, this morning the manager is on his usual blame seeking campaign and Commons publicly fighting with his own teammates, very poor showing and the Champion League last 8 is not a place for a team like Celtic to be near for a good while yet. This was a chance of a generation scuppered and woefully wasted!
