    Inclined to agree to an extent. He has plenty playing resources but was unable to buy. Possibly the reason he got the gig as top men would maybe not go. Especially as they lost Hazard.
    But hopefully he will do well enough, although I've got reservations on the players mentality.

    Think it will be an interesting season for Chelsea, but they still have some decent players, that young American they brought cost over 50 million.

    Yes they may struggle a bit against some sides but it will let them fully blood some young talent, which may save them a fortune

    indeed. surprising team selection too. Back to drawing board on that I think. Also a few players must have had an off night. The Romanians?.. aren't that good a team I wouldnt have thought.

    Oh well at least they are still in the Europa..

    I thought they were in the Europa playoffs - they don't automatically qualify.

    yup, think its the final plays offs they go into at this stage. still it gives another bite of cherry, albeit a smaller less sweet one. Rangers are hoping to join them on thursday night. We hold a 4-2 advantage so we have a good chance, being at home.
    But, the need to guard against not giving their all for 90 mins. The Danes are not a bad side

    Last night should be a good warning to the Rangers players, with Celtic conceding 4 goals at home

    I find it more sad than anything else.

    Scottish football is just so nowhere now, in terms of the standard of European club footie. Actually on an international level too !!!!

    Hugely sad to see this descent to becoming 3rd rate no-hopers at every level.

    Kilmarnock beaten by a team of part timers. Celtic losing 4 goals at home and going out.
    It really is a true reflection of the level now.

    Even my team St Johnstone, one of the greatest teams ever...... so bad.
    I cringe now when I see them on telly, as I do with all footie I see from up there.

    Honestly, when I see second tier football in England, it is way ahead of anything I see in Scotland.
    I suppose Killie beaten by part timers from Wales is very telling in respect of current levels.

    Just so sad, and i dont understand why. The clubs must be getting money for TV rights. Crowds at Celtic are still large.

    It must just be that not enough kids are playing the game there now, and coming through. I dont know why.

    Did I say... very sad !!
