Now that my bum has stopped squeeking and my temporarily excited Airdrie neighbours are tucked up safely in their bed and I'm able to eat ma dinner it's time for a reality check. Getting past Rosenberg and Astana was no mean feat so credit to Rodgers and the team. However It is a dangerous game we doth play though me protesteth each year this let's qualify then spend. Lucky last year with the Happy Bear Shavers and lucky again tonight. Could very easily have become the biggest you know whit in the nest ever. Bottom line though is that we're through, the Huns are shining bright, their manager is single fish and a TIM and the gap that was already a chasm between Parkhead and Govan has just got £40m wider. Not that I'm bragging just saying like. ☘️.

squeak - at the hairy beer shandies - we should have learned from that, maybe we did.

We are punching a mile above our weight, never mind giving out about this or that possition, or who we need to bring in to compete. We are there, in the big time again, roll on another treble, and closer to 10.

Spot on Malika. Growing up with the huns 9 in a row was pure shite. We need to appreciate what we have right now.

How are we punching above our weight? linfield . rosenburg . astana . spl. If that's punching above our weight then we are in serious trouble.

Always going to be tough match despite winning the home tie 5 - 0. Astana haven't lost a home European tie in 15 games but we're there in the group stages again. My prediction for Thursday's draw.
Real Madrid
Man United

a nice easy draw then.

really don't mind this time - "IF" we are all fit, we will give anyone a game.

Bit of a wake up call tonight:

Wasteful in midfield (brown especially)
Keeper beaten near post (again)
Wasteful of chances (griff for Europe? )
Young guys inexperienced at this level but will benefit from this game
Teams who press us high up the park will either get slaughtered on the counter or will reap the rewards.

Great job to qualify delighted for us all, this team is building and learning every game.

Imagine this draw:

Real Madrid

Regardless of the draw it's great to be back in the group stages.

Who of our central defenders should be fit by first week of champions league and who do we want to see brought in as striker.

Mon the Hoops. Looking forward to the matches at paradise whoever we get. Hail Hail.

Definitely need an experienced centre half brought in. I know we're signing this south African centre half but no sure he's the answer yet especially at champions league level. Must say a big well done to the bhoys to qualify yet again playing 3 qualifiers just to get into the groups as domestic league champions. Now it's concluded let's go get 2 or 3 quality players in.

Agree5 0Disagree

22 Aug 2017 18:51:39
I'd be happy enough with Boyata and Jozo. One of them being out though and we've got a bit of a problem.

Agree1 1Disagree

22 Aug 2017 18:51:55
don't get me started on having to qualify for the "champions" league. UEFA and their pals have ruined it, it used to be a pure cup competition, but has not been for many years . some teams that win it are not even domestic champions, money and greed have put paid to the integrity of it, they should have left the euro cups alone and we would still have 3.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Aug 2017 18:56:34
Agree. Hopefully the Board back Brendan and sign an experienced CH. With the riches from the Champions league another 2 or 3 quality players along with Paddy Roberts. Would love to get Real Madrid in the group (no doubt be Barca! ) & any English team.

Agree1 0Disagree

I am delighted to be through, I began to wonder if it was all going to go wrong when they scored 3 times early in the second half, but thankfully we pulled it round.
I don't know what was wrong with Jozo, but we are getting an awful lot of injuries in that position lately, it's asking a lot of a young player who is very raw at this level, and for a midfield player playing out of position, to play in a match of this importance, hopefully we will get it sorted before the group stages.
I'm sorry we lost our unbeaten run, but overall if you'd offered me these 2 results when the draw was made I would have bitten your hand off, so I'm certainly not going to worry about it too much.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Aug 2017 19:33:41
Disagree with the Boyata shout JimTim. Hats off to the boy for working hard and getting back in the team however I feel he would be a real weak link in the CL. Really poor distribution and looks a nervous wreck on the ball. Def require a centre half partner for big Jozo in my opinion.

Agree1 1Disagree

22 Aug 2017 19:43:19
I'd give him a chance Ice Man. Still think he can be good for us. If a top drawer CB was brought in, fair enough. But with Rivaldo coming in we have a few CBs when fit.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Aug 2017 20:05:40
I'd no doubt have him as a squad player Jim Tim and happy for him to play SPL but have my doubts at CL level. No doubt the guy has attributes. I think his biggest attribute is his airiel power in the opposition box. Great attitude as well as I remember BR mentioning he was trading in the early hours of the morning when he wasn't in the team.

Agree0 0Disagree

Canny slate a team that qualifies for the CL - scoring 8 (3away) goals in a tough tie. However the transformation from strolling at HT to panic-stations for periods in the second period made us sweat a bit.
Very difficult to motivate yourself and pummel any team when you are 6-1 up with 45 to go, but the lapses in concentration, slack passes and stray clearances gave Astana hope where there should be none.
Obviously there were a few culprits out there who never did their jobs - especially in a makeshift defence - but we survived thanks mainly to big Olivier who was immense and the other scorers over the two legs who made the difference.
We do need more quality in goal and at the back, but we have more than enough options in the middle and final third - as long as they remember to turn up.
Gave more a wee scare Bhoys but well done once again.

Agreed. Ntcham was excellent. Seemed to take a knock late on, but ran it off. Bitton isn't a centre half. All''s well that ends well.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Aug 2017 18:56:51
Scott Brown was careless in possesion. Unlike him. Bitton not a centre half. Hopefully Boyota and co back soon. We have 4 big players to come back including Paddy so will improve. Biggest worry was Gordon. He made 2 great saves but beaten at near post when he should have closed that down. Not convinced he is the best we can get.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Aug 2017 18:59:48
We where cruising at half time. Squeaky bum time for 30 minute period in the second half. Our main 3 defenders have been out along with Dembele so it's not a bad achievement to qualify. Looking forward to the draw on Thursday.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Aug 2017 19:34:15
Gordon was pretty rank but in fairness Lustig left him out to dry on that near-post goal.

Agree0 1Disagree

22 Aug 2017 20:01:23
Agreed on both counts. I think we're going to see more and more of Ralston as the season goes on.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Aug 2017 20:37:32
Gordons 2 great saves came at very important times in the match and all of the goals were defensive and midfield mistakes. Gordon has been excellent this season and was again in this game. Hail Hail.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Aug 2017 20:53:55
never thought for a second they would score 5 and after we scored NO WAY they were going to score 7.

it turned a dull game into a more entertaining one.

but WE MUST LEARN FROM THIS and recruit so we never settle for a team out of position.

we KNEW boyata was out and as soon as we knew we had drawn astana (plastic pitch, no jozo) an experienced CB should have been bought there and then.

as I say I personally never worried and enjoyed the game - but if we had only won 3-0 at home. or even 4-1/ 5-1. this could have been a different story.
