Last Champions League match left me a bit underwhelmed, we can play better defensively at least

Yeah.

Big game today and traditionally after the European games we struggle...

Okay game, that draw keeps some hopes alive, Dembele is just astonishingly good

What a buy Dembele is. If we can hold on to Brendan Rodgers for a few years I think he can build us into a force again!
Selling Dembele could keep the club financially stable for a few years. £20million easily.

No magic this time around against Barcelona, but I think there is a room for improvement, we have to be optimistic about this euro season, the group is too tough for us right now.

A typical Celtic group this year.

So much progress has been made this season already. Exciting times ahead.

20 victories out of 21 matches in the league is pretty impressive but the lack of domestic competition is evident

Fantastic run we are on. As happy as I am i'll be happier when we have competition.

1-1 draw against Rangers is a bit disappointing, but still the domestic season is going smooth

the next round is again Rosenborg or Dundalk, the former was a Champions League regular back in the day

Yeah absolutely it will be a tricky tie if both teams go through!
Another trip to Norway would be very interesting!

I'll take it! I never watched the game but I was hearing a few of the new players looked good which is good to hear!
Rosenborg will be a step up which will be good this early in the season!

Lacklustre performance, we need to improve quickly.
Rosenborg is a solid team, at least defensively

Yeah it really was. We missed a striker and there was no height in the box or anyone making runs. It was too easy for Rosenborg to defend.

^Height in the box was not the only issue, not enough diversity and versatility upfront.

The problem last night was there was no one up front. By lack of height I mean there was no one in the box! No one seemed to take that responsibility.
We still can go through next week in Norway but it'll be difficult.
I'd rather have Jack Aitchison up front next week if Griffiths is still out!

^Celtic is a powerful enough team to snatch one or two strikers on the bigger teams' benches for a loan deal, I think that the work of scouts hasn't been the best so far this season.

I've been very happy with the transfer activity this season but in and out. I'd like another centre back though.

^I think we should bring in another striker (via loan at least).

It's very clear we need another option but it's hard enough keeping both Dembele and Griffiths happy when they are both fit. But a loan option could be a good call for the cover. I'm not sure any of the young players are up for the job of back up!

^Keeping Dembele seems almost impossible to me.
I think having a solid striker on the bench is an obligation, I don't think we can find someone good enough inside the SPL.
