    It says on the BBC website that even though Celtic lost from AC Milan, they're still in the play-offs between the top 16.

    However, when I look at the fixtures on the same BBC website, they're not there!!!

    So, what's going on?

    Calm down, calm down!

    Celtic's group played their matches one week early, to allow Milan to play in some obscure international game to fill the pockets of FIFA money men next week. What you see in the fixtures on that link is just the final group games left to be played next week, not the knock-out stages which will be feb/march sometime.

    Thank God. I thought I'd fried one too many braincells there!

    I hope we get to play against them if we pass. We could use some easy games.
