Cruel is not the word here, Celtic were looking like getting a point and I think we were all thinking “If we get a point great, but we deserved 3” Lennon brings on Boerrighter and pikku and we lose 2 goals, at 0-0 when the subs were made, I thought here we go, 1-0 win and 3 points. Before the game we all felt we could do something tonight, and with 10 minutes to go, a point was looking like it should have been 3, very hard to take, but we did good tonight, we can hold our heads high
We had chance after chance on the counter attack, the game plan worked, but a deflected shot and lazy defending cost us. For 80 minutes Celtic HAMMERED AC Milan and shows we can do it, but we lacked in the final 3rd, in and around the box we lacked clinical finishing, this is such a cruel game and my heart goes out to Lenny and the boys
I say again, at 0-0 I was thinking, if we get the point great, but we deserve 3. We beat them on possession; sadly we just couldn’t get the ball in the net. We hit the bar, we had several half chances. AC Milan know they got lucky tonight, Celtic were not expected to get anything tonight, but after watching for 80 minutes, we were in full control. I don’t understand why Mathews and Commons coming off changed the game. Izzy stuck his foot out at a shot going wide and the dream result turned into a nightmare
Let’s be honest, we played brilliant, we controlled the game, and we will learn from this. We are growing under Lennon, and he will be as sick as the rest of us tonight. What could have been is exactly how I feel right now, I feel sick
This is one of the best performances I have seen from a Celtic side away in Football against a so called GIANT of European football, we looked like a proper European side, and 2-0 from the onlooker who never seen the game suggests what was expected.
We gather our stock, Ajax got beat, so we now need to win our home games, and we knew this anyway
Unlucky Celtic, you showed tonight the future is bright; this was a street wise performance where the Managers tactics were working. Did Lenny make the substitutions at the wrong time? Mathews was doing well, his crossing was not the best but he was solid, Common’s was linking things up. When they went off, the game just changed. But no blame is being attached here
We are still in it, we still can progress, and we know we can hold our own, we didn’t look like mugs, and it was a great performance.
Next game, heads up and let’s look forward to still being in the Champions League
Although the hurt will last a few days, in the cold light of day after the hurt goes away, we will look back to a terrific performance against a superb side.
