Realistically no one really believed Celtic were going to survive the Barca goal-machine show, and yes, it was very tactical football, but that is wot needs to be done against players of this quality, if Celtic tried to play Barca in attacking play then it would have been a whitewash, atleast 6-0, most teams would have played the same way in Celtics position, and honestly, only being beat by one goal in the dying seconds of the match by a team such as Barcalona, in the Nou Camp is not a bad result. Don't see many teams doing that. As for the Sevco Zombie Nation, don't be jealous cos your team is rotten, we're in the CHAMPIONS league, playing some very good teams, where are you's? Getting knocked out of the Ramsdens Cup at home by Queen of the South... Barcalona v Celtic 2 - 1 Rangers v Queen of the South 2 - 2 (3 - 4 on penalties) Enuff said...
Celtic played a great tactical game. All the people that are putting Celtic down, are being unfair. OK, Celtic haven't got the quality players that Barca have..but who has? Celtic, you did a fantastic job last night, it's such a pity that you didn't get the draw. From an Englisman and an Aston Villa supporter (I wish my team played with Celtic's passion, commitment and bravery).
Credit to Celtic for making it difficult for Barca at the Camp Just shows to everyone that 80% possession and dominating a game doesn't always guarantee victory. In football, the team that deserves to win doesn't always win
Well i am a Barca fan for a long time , and i think what celtic did last night was a good performance. Of course taking to the account the styles of the two teams it should have been barca on the ball and Celtic relaying on set pieces and counter! But they defended quite well taking the play in their own half but a couple of meters away from their penalty area. I think last year Chelsea got lucky to go through as they were so many clear cut chances....so many which werent capitalized! ....Peace
there,s a few arseholes on this web site
a good comeback by Barcelona
Barcelona were horrendous, but should still have been 5 or 6 one. And with over 70% of the play it says it all.....
Why don't all you pond #$%$ concentrate your energy on your up and coming derby game with the bully wee,instead of making low life comments on a European competition you won't be in for years and years
#142 lucky saves by foster ??? what watch were you watching ? world class saves, and that what is there to do
sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssshhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii itttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt
Hard luck Celtic. You are still in second and in with a good chance of qualifying. Granted it's a big step up, but every team has to believe and you have to believe, Barca is a hard place to go but you weren't disgraced. well done from a Chelsea fan.
Such a shame eh....not
Barcelona will not win any champions league this season
Messi was effective when he got ball. Messi played as a signboard because he was surrounded by 3-4 players all time. That was Barca's plan.
Same old sad acts talkin #$%$ worry about your own teams!
A small step above losing to Stirling Albion and being demoted several divisions for shameful tax evasion.
Celtic was soooo lucky tonight, i don't think they would be that lucky as we will have some players back on, it realy should of been atleast 5-1
Good effort on Celtic part to show how BUNKER or "park the buss" or Italian Catenaccio is played. Desperate, panic defending with 10 or 11 players at all times, struggling to occasionally cross half way line is praised in UK as good football and "valiant effort". No further comment needed here
I hope barca play better at the piggery and bury that mob and the ginger #$%$.
as i said to all you Irish let's see who will laugh last and loudst VIVA BARCA AND THE WIL TO WIN

Any number of Celtic players could have justly been identified as the man-of-the-match, but Forster's string of incredible saves kept his side in the contest until he was finally beaten for a second time in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
