But, but, what about the co-efficiency?
Surely you must want Scottish clubs to do well in Europe?

My usual reply is firstly, if we can't do it for ourselves, I don't want it.
Secondly, when I see more union flags, even saltires, than Irish republic flags, I'll consider septic a Scottish team.

Any win would see an implosion.

Ideally they get get beat and do not score and miss a couple of chances that Griffiths would have scored.

Then next week they anti UEFA banners return and they are knocked out.

That's the thing as well.
Any benefit we'd get from them earning more co-efficient points is negated, and then some, by the money they'd earn doing so.
So, wanting them to lose is not parochial rivalry or hatred, just quite sensible.

Rosenborg are 13/2 with Skybet. This suggests that they are indeed pish. Plus...to give them a modicum of credit, the rhats don't often lose at home in Europe.

I think the best we can hope for is a score draw and some more shenanigans from their extremists.

It will sadly be a fairly straight forward win, both legs I fancy. As far as they are into their season, Rosenberg struggled with a team no better than Linfield. I'd love them in the Europa league group stages as at this stage that tends to involve nightmare trips to all the ex Russian 'stans and on Thursday as well. As much disruption to their season as possible will let us bed in.

It could be a very tricky tie for the mhanks.

Talk of Ajer playing centre half and Rogic playing centre forward. Not ideal at all for them.

I see Rodgers proclaiming himself as a visionary last season by playing Rogic once as a striker and claiming he was 'planning ahead' for games like tonight.

I love to see that fanny put back in his box.

Rosenborg are not the team they once were but are currently an improving side (unfortunately I think we will have to wait for the next round before there is a real danger of them failing).

You never know though, a tight game at the piggery could see a tough game in Norway as Celtic don't travel well.

Sadly Rosenberg aren't what they were - same issues as all other small leagues across Europe - and I can see the filth winning. However it won't be easy for them. My worry is that they are as jammy as last year when they were fairly dreadful in the qualifiers and still made it.

Me neither, but I read an article on them recently and it was all about ho much they were improving, style of play and that fans were coming back to watch them after a few years in the doldrums.

A lot being made of the Dundalk tie, but Dundalk showed last season they aren't mugs, and they are also well into their season so it was always going to be a tight match.

Might be clutching at straws and wishful thinking, but I really think this will be very tricky for them.

Best chance for the Norwegians tonight of getting at least an away goal.
If they don't lose by 2 or 3 clear goals then they might take them over in Trondheim.

Well for this round of the competition and given that rosenborg are on the up then we cant ask for much more.

Being well into their season will help but the key is keeping the score low tonight, if its more than 2-0 then forget about it.

I agree regarding Dundalk and Linfield

Also Dundalk are 20 odd games into their season as well so although Rosenborg are maybe not great this would've had a bearing on their tie with Dundalk

some fans realising last season was a one off because they are back to Rd standards.

Nothing to suggest they won't finish the job. I watched most of the game, clicking out if the tims were in a decent position, which wasn't often. From what I seen Rosenborg were a much better side. Had Bendtner been at all decent the scum would be two down. Also, they seemed to tame Broonaldo no problems whatsoever, even given him the odd whack now and again to which he didn't respond well. Particularly at the end which was nice to see.

Rosenborg are strong at home domestically and midway through their season.

Watched and Rosenborg deserved at least one goal. Missed a sitter from 8yds out and bendtner missed the ball with what would've been an easy finish. Celtic created very little other than one half chance with Forrest shooting just wide. I think they can do them at home, but could also see selick sneaking a 1-1 to see them through. Let's hope it's an easy nights work for Rosenborg.

Although I would have them as slight favourites still there is massive pressure on them now, really massive if Rosenburg keep the head and realise this then it could be party time.

Do not underestimate the pressure this would take off of us and Pedro in particular. It could quite easily turn from being a pressure cooker for our man to a situation where he has a little more slack than he thought.

Heard Brenda on the radio the man is a total dick-extremely condescending and smelly.

He's scored a professional goal for every year he's been alive by the way.

They seem determined to be architects of their own downfall. First they alienate their own fans by not taking up tickets for Windsor Park and fibbing about the reason, then the green brigade alienate everyone from the normally sympathetic press to their own teams manager with an organised Provo-fest and then the team struggle to an uninspiring home draw against a poor Rosenborg.

The Norwegians will be kicking themselves they didn't take at least 1 of their good chances.

Celtic had ONE shot on target all game and it was tame effort. As soon as pressure hits Rodgers it will be interesting.

Rosenborg have the beating of them regardless if they score going on their performance last night .

On the back of that, I'd say we are a better side than the filth and still to fully gel and strengthen.
55 is coming home.

Rosenberg 2 - 1 Nonce FC

Rosenberg scoring first, the Filth equalise (so their hopes are through the roof) - and Rosenborg to piss on their chips with an 89th minute winner

Well, I'm the ever hopeful and optimistic type

This 89th minute winner.
Can it please be the most controversial non penalty kick ever awarded.:D

Norwegian teams are usually very strong at home so I can see Rosenborg pumping the mhank ala Molde of a few years back.

I would agree Rosenburg can't let the misses last night affect their mindset in their home tie. Missed opportunities do sometimes come back to haunt you.

I think this is now down to mindsets-if Celtic show the mental toughness I think they will go through but there are under severe pressure and it's been a while since they've really been pushed in that way-this is already a season defining game-the deflation from an European exit will be massive -it creates issues at all levels.

What is encouraging is a few of the players that usually deliver their stability beyond their goal scorers struggled last night.

I am really surprised that he has not freshened it up a bit over there.

Let's hope that complacency creeps in.

Better Celtic sides than this have gone into a second leg akin to this one with some trepidation and failed. It really could go either way now (it is a real test for Brenda and his squad who, let's face it, have never yet been truly tested other than the CL Group stages last season). As you say, how they react under pressure will be interesting (and, if they fail, how their supporting hordes react will also be interesting).
