Well I never expected this after the defeat by FC Sion. The fact is I was so angry with the performance over the two legs that when I realised there was a possibility that we could get reinstated I did not want us reinstated!
However I’ve had plenty of time to calm down now and I’m delighted that we are still competing in Europe.
Well so the saying goes but it’s quite apt for tonight’s game. The team really have to stand up and be counted.
Celtic’s record in Europe since WGS left is nothing short of shocking with the exception of a win in Moscow our away form has been poor.
Last season we beat Braga at home but the damage was done in the first leg in Portugal. We then beat Utrech 2 – 0 at home and proceeded to totally collapse in the second leg.
So how will we play tonight? It’s a cert Lenny will go 4-5-1 with Sammy leading the line.
Basically it could all come down to either Sammy playing a blinder and we get a few goals or Sammy dithering and falling on his back side and we waste possession. The big question is who will play in goals. Will it be Forster or Zaluska ?
