Celticunderground:The Celtic Football Fan Podcast
A Celtic Fan Podcast. We discuss all manner of things to do with the greatest team in the world - Celtic.

Oh Hampden in the Sun, Rodgers skelped Mark Warburton..

This week Harry is joined by Jack Lyons to discuss and dissect the League Cup Semi Final victory over the Zombies. The bhoys review the tactical changes both managers made before and during the game and decide the Brendan is of course best. The briefly touch on the performance of the clown Thompson before switching attention back to a brief review of the loss midweek to The German Team.

Following ALL of this we get a quick prediction from Jack for the scoreline in the forthcoming Ross County and Aberdeen games which are the last bit of proper football before Scotland get beaten at Wembley and the media get all agnsty for a couple of days about the state of our game.

This week Mark Cooper joins Harry to discuss the fantastic coverage that the club received following the dramatic 3-3 draw with Manchester City in the Champions League. Following on from that the bhoys then have a preview of the forthcoming tia against the Germans and then the Cup Semi Final against the former Huns and in previewing realise that victory on Wednesday all but provides for European football beyond Christmas and victory on Sunday all but guarantees the resignation of a manager!

It wouldn't be a South American podcast without discussion on why Celtic don't fish in that pond - an interesting debate considering the departure of John Park the day after this was recorded.

There is new music as usual (links on the site) podcast recommendations and the Foundation.

We are in the desert of international football and out of that desert comes the oasis of a Celtic Underground Podcast. Following on from the close season podcast with James Kelly MSP on his process of trying to repeal OBFA Harry has a catch up with Jeanette Findlay of Fans Against Criminalisation on the act, its consequences and how YOU can help with its repeal.

Jeanette is joined by Jim to provide us with how this act is being implimented by the police and fiscal.

If, like us, you find this act rediculous, illiberal and not fit for purpose then you can write to your MSP, attend a surgery or complete the Parliament survey;


Also, sadly, a name familiar to many of us online, @Napoleon_Celtic died suddenly at the end of September. For those who'd been on The Big Lhist or just kicking around Celtic supporters groups will also have come across and know him by his real name of Iain Tarbet. Iain's funeral is this Friday (14th Oct) in Ardrossan and his family have organised a collection for the Celtic FC Foundation;

This week we have a very VERY special guest on the podcast - Brendan Rodgers!

We chat with Brendan one to one to discuss his first few months at Celtic, how he's settling in and a bit about his thoughts and ideas on football. This is a fans podcast by the fans so we follow up the Brendan chat with a preview of the game and St Anthony is joined by his mate Chris Kenny who hails from the Blue Moon side of Manchester. The two lads discuss both clubs and Chris ends with a 2-0 Man City win - booo!

This week's podcast is an eclectic mix of analysing the past, discussing the future and hearing about the present. Harry Brady is joined by Jack Lyons for a tactical review of the last three Celtic games prior to the podcast which were;
The 5 - 1 thrashing of Scotland's newest club
The 7 - 0 Humping in Catalonia
The 2 - 2 Draw in The Highlands

The boys also touch on the predictions for the Killie game on Saturday and what Celtic might do to combat the might of Barca in the return game.

Mixed in with all of that we have the post match interviews from the Alloa game including the press guys laughing at a colleagues inability to pronounce a Latin American name. Oh, and whilst this was being recorded we drew a diddy team in the League Cup.

New music is from The Label https://listentothelabel.bandcamp.com/album/vodka-and-lemonade

This is the audio from the 5-1 game. I picked up celebrations of both the 4th & 5th goals and sandwiched between is my prediction of 5 goals on Sportsound and interviews with Brendan and Dembele.

This week Harry is joined by Hullbhoy to discuss the first New Glasgow Derby in the league. The bhoys discuss what we all know - it's the same fans, supporting a team wearing the same colours in the same stadium but that it's NOT the same club...it can't be because THE OLD ONE WENT BUST! Harry regails a tale from his starring role on Sportsound but is then taken down a peg or two by being reminded that St ANthony was in the New York Times.

After this bit of banter the bhoys get get down to brass tacks and review what the team for the New Derby will be before Harry grans a bit of audio from the archives and plays and Omnishables Special

There is new music as usual (links on the site) no new podcast recommendations (as Harry needs to get himself organised) and of course the Foundation.


This week Mark Cooper joins Harry to discuss the summer transfer window which, in the usual fashion, closed without much Celtic business being done on the last day. The boys discuss whether it was good bad or indifferent and decide it was pretty good. It could have been better with perhaps one more signing but all in all we have a better squad than we started it with.

In addition to the transfer window the bhoys briefly touch on the Aberdeen game and the changes to the Champions League.

This week Harry is joined by our South american correspondent Mark Cooper to discuss the marvellous events at Celtic Park, when a fantastic atmosphere urged on a wonderful game that delivered 7 goals - Five for Celtic.

Mark and Harry review the goals, the team and the performances and come to the conclusion that Celtic will go through. At the end of the podcast they briefly review Scottish football medai people asking diddy questions and Mark predicts a 5-0 v St Johnstone. It's all very pleasant...oh and is it Sin -Clair or Sinclur?
