Really unlucky not to get the win, we were the dominant team but Norwich had a good last gasp attack that led to the tap in. Overall a good game and the scoreline doesn't represent what happened.

I actually thought we controlled the 2nd half quite easilly which resulted in them leaving the boot in a few times.
Izzy seems to be improving game by game and the highlights have to be an effective 90 from Paddy,Lustig and Twardzik who all played pretty well?

Good run-out for the Bhoys tonight, think a draw would of been a fair result. But some promising signs -Twardzick having a very good game, passing looking a lot more crisper and the whole team looking like they have a bit more urgency about themselves all in all a good pre-season game.

So did Wanyama and Commons. A lot of people are talking about Dylan but so far this season I've been impressed by Twardzik, he has an eye for a pass and has good dribbling. Sort of a Ki type of player but I've not seen much of his shooting yet.

That was a more productive game than the other 4 put together. Positives-:Youngsters like Twardzik and McGeough looking comfortable in the first team, Commons looking like the player he was, when he first arrived.
Paddy I thought, played well in a deeper role, great range of passing too.Hope he can keep his fitness up, also if he can contain the Brasilesue runs, he might feature more this year.
Negatives-: Still getting hurt on the counter attack and no one in the box when decent crosses are sent in. It's also clear that, Murphy and Wilson are not right for Celtic.
The whole team has had a run out lately and, with the bread and butter games on the horizon, am sure against Inter Milan, we'll see what the first 11 for the new season will be.

At least we're in the Champions League and not languishing in the 3rd division always look on the bright side

Always disappointing to lose. As soon as I noticed the youngsters on the team sheet, I thought "We are still in pre-season mode"

If you actually had watched the game then you would've realised ;

We outplayed Norwich the first half and then in the second half it was equal.
We hit the woodwork 4 or 5 times.
We were unlucky to concede in the last 5 minutes.

You're the kind of people Celtic don't need supporting them, if you're a true supporter you take the positives out of a game like this and be greatful Dylan McGeough, Paddy McCourt, Daryl Murphy and Mo Bangura got some game time.

It was a friendly so the result isn't the main point, it's the way how we played, giving some players who don't get enough game time a chance and most of all playing 90 minutes on the park.

Since when did a Premiership team become "Piss poor". People still stuck in 2003 era and previous. Norwich is a good team compared to us now, people just have to LITERALLY open their eyes.

Didn't we have a decent pre-season last year? We beat Dundee United 5-1 the game before we drew against Sion. Season before that I remember the Celtic fans weren't complain much either, drew against Sporting Lisbon, drew against Lyon and lost 3-2 to Arsenal.

There is much more to pre-season than the games. Also how can you claim Sion result had anything to do with the pre-season games? First leg we had no striker to go with Stokes which was due to an Injury to Hooper and Celtic not signing any other striker. Second leg we had Majstorovic get himself sent off and give away a penalty in the second minute of the game. Then they scored from a freekick, we fought back but Sion counter attacked to seal the game. I would say that result was more dependant on not spending in the transfer market when the squad really needed it. A second proper striker in the first leg could have got us a goal or two. A good centre back in the second leg could have got us a draw or maybe even a win. It wasn't really much if anything to do with fitness or match sharpness.

Lennon now has a decent squad that can be improved but is much stronger than the one that we seen against Sion if everyone is fit. But obviously there is area's that we can strengthen on and it's best that we get it done quick. Targetman and a replacement for Kelvin Wilson.

Filip Twardzik is going to be a terrific player, good touch, see's the pass, makes the space, confident and loads of energy.

Kris Commons has had a better start than he did last season.

Wilson Murphy and Bangura should be chased from Celtic Park.

McCourt looks like he's shed a few pounds, and Lustig looked surprisingly comfortable all night.

Are we ready for Hell-sinki..........................NOPE.
