No it is Group C Crazy

thought it was but then looked on BBC website for the other groups and idiot article says

'Manchester City will meet Scottish champions Celtic and manager Pep Guardiola's former club Barcelona in the Champions League group stage.

German side Borussia Monchengladbach will be the other team in Group B.'

I don't see big scores generally in European competitions. City and Gladbach at home are possible points opportunities and Barcelona aren't averse to having a mare away from home, throw in the possibility of a 4-3 somewhere along the lines and you never know.

I don't rate Celtic at all, but I don't think they are as bad as many people make out. I think people looking at the results against Hapoel Beer Sheva and Astana have underrated those sides massively.

He did pretty much park the bus and play for a 1-0 loss away to Real Madrid as Liverpool manager, showing zero ambition to chase the game even when losing 1-0.

What was laughable was how on BT Sport today they had Celtic in all their toughest groups for the English teams, and were making out like they were a terrible draw for Man City. There is no way Celtic were the best team from pot 4.

I can guarantee you from Pot 4, Celtic Park would be the hardest place to win by a country mile, think some people forget Celtics home record in Europe is up there with the best, Rodgers is putting a good team together and you would be foolish to judge them on the latest beer sheva defeat. Celtic could quite easily have won that first leg 7 or 8 nil. The away leg was just enormous pressure on a team that had collapsed the last 2 years in a row, fans of run of the mill english teams have no clue the pressure on Celtic teams in that situation. That was the most difficult game of our season, there is no real pressure on us in the groups as no one expects us to get anything, we will be a very dangerous team at home and I wont be surprised if we take a big scalp in this group.

We are also expecting a marquee signing in the next week, the first team is certain to be strengthened before the groups.

Is mostly from a time when Celtic had better teams. Their home record has gradually got worse as the team has got worse (as you would expect obviously).

Interesting, one thing is for sure it won't be -18. Mesmerised has the Barcelona scores about right, however the scores against Man City will be different.

Celtic v Man City 1-1 Man City v Celtic 3-2 and the other game
BMonchen v Celtic 2-0 Celtic 2 BMonchen 2

= -10

Rembember Celtic v Man City is Scotland v England, although with Man City (rest of the world) In any game the Scottish side will fight even harder to not lose to any  club from England.

Why the bitterness towards the english league ? Whether it's overrated or not is irrelevant , we are talking about a team that got beaten by Gibralter red imps whose star player was a window cleaner.

Despite all the money flooding into the EPL the product has got worse in recent years.
The bottom club in the EPL each year gets a payment greater than that of all Scottish clubs combined.

goal difference might not be massive in this group.

big teams like barca and man city sometimes seem quite happy sitting on a one goal lead against little teams while german teams can  always be dangerous although there is only one top class team in germany. 

even though the SPL is the weakest SPL in history and scottish teams are completely useless when they play foreign opposition, there is always the chance that if one or more of the big teams have already qualified then they will play their second team in the later stages.

Their second teams should still be way better than celtic but whether they will score lots of goals would be a doubt.
