It’s the night before and what else could we possibly do but release a podcast in tribute to one of the most remarkable achievement in all of Scottish sport. 25th May 1967 is a date written into the folklore of our club but for those of us under 50 it is only something we have read about or watched on video. Our older fans were lucky enough to experience it so we thought it essential that we ask our own Lachie Mor for his memories.
Fresh faced and rosey cheeked, the 19 year old Lachie was at college down in Manchester but he made the treck back to Glasgow to watch the game at home. And this is that story.
With one or two other bits of audio you might recognise (including a posh Archie) Enjoy…

You will tell your grandchildren that you were there, that you saw Celtic win the league without loosing a game. Wonderful.
This week we hear from Brendan Rodgers and Leigh Griffiths immediately after the Hearts victory. Leigh still had the mud on his boots at the press conference whereas Brendan had spent quite some time on the park before the press conference commenced but it was all good. Brendan talked a lot about being invincible, infrangible and Leigh talked about which boss is the best kisser! As for Mark and I? We just meander and ramble this way and that.

This week Harry is joined by St Anthony, fresh from his trip to the hospital. Many have wondered what part of his body Saint had enhanced...we couldn't possibly comment! After discussing how difficult it was to have a hospital visit sandwiched between two humpings of a team from Ibrox, Harry & Saint then go on to discuss the victory over Aberdeen before a more mundane discussion around the parking proposals at Celtic Park, the lack of thought that surrounds the proposal and the possible impact.
After this chat the bhoys revert back to football and the forthcoming Thistle game.

This week the guests (nearly) are all Celtic.
Following from the victory over St Johnstone when Celtic’s starting outfield 10 had a combined age of just 22, we hear from one of those young stars Patrick Roberts. We also have 10 minutes from the manager where he discusses the performances of Ralston and Johnstone, the chances of keeping Paddy and his general thoughts on the victory.
Also this past week we had the launch of the new strip and at that event myself and a few other Celtic websites were able to have a chat with Stuart Armstrong, Callum McGregor and Kieran Tierney, so we have the 10 minutes per player exclusive chat also. At the end we hear from St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright who confesses that we were just too good for his team.

WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!
In the darkest days of the 1990’s, pre Fergus McCann, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would stand at Ibrox and witness such an imperious performance. They may be a new club but it’s the same ground with the same fans and we absolutely thumped them. Destroyed them. Ground them into the ground.
From almost the first goal there was an air of menace, a thought that at any time their end could flip and go bonkers. Brown’s attack, monkey taunts and Directors fighting. This was THEIR Dallas Game, their Mars Bar game…except they have no Fergus coming!
So en-route home I was joined by gentle Jim to discuss the game. We wanted a raw and fresh podcast that captured how we felt immediately post game. It’s recorded on the journey home so please accept our apologies on the sound quality.

This week Harry is back and joined by Hullbhoy to discuss the fabulous walk in the park victory of the Rangers.
Fresh from taking off his lycra blue/green body suit, Hullbhoy discusses with Harry how good Celtic were, how bad Rangers are and how a ref getting red card decisions wrong will be seen as having a good day! The bhoys wax lyrical about the team and then at the end Harry reminds everyone that being Celtic is not just on the park performances but off the park charity.
Oh and good luck to Saint with his impending galbladder op.

This Sunday, the Celtic Graves Society will host a special event to commemorate the final resting place of James Kelly, Celtic's first ever captain. And it's appropriate that the event falls on the 125th anniversary of Celtic's first ever Scottish Cup triumph - a 5-1 victory over Queen's Park on April 9, 1892 - when James Kelly led the Celts to the first of the 101 major trophies that the club has won in its long and illustrious history.
The commemoration ceremony will take place at St Patrick's Cemetery, 29 King's Drive, New Stevenston on Sunday, April 9, starting at 2pm.
Following this latest Tale From The Wiki we have audio from Brendan, James Forrest & Elbows.

This weeks podcast revisits the Celtic Graves Society event that took place last week in Prague. The work of the Celtic Graves Society in keeping the memory of former Hoops Heroes alive is amazing and never more evident than this past week with the guys travelling to the Czech Republic to commemorate a former Celt. Jim takes us through the events of that weekend with audio in three parts from the Johnny Madden celebration and commemoration. An early Celt Johnny was also the father of Czech football.
If you can listen to last weeks podcast extra and then this.

This week we have the return of the Saint. Fresh from his trip to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital St Anthony delivers and excellent podcast about Nutmeg magazine.
We can all be guilty of trotting out the lazy Scottish Mainstream Media label as a catch-all for bad journalism but to be fair we shouldn’t tar them all with the same brush. There are some very good journalists out there covering the Scottish game and Nutmeg is one of the publications providing a platform those good journalists.
It’s a periodical which promotes itself by saying “It’s not a book, it’s not a magazine. It’s somewhere in between, and something completely new in Scotland; a quarterly subscription-only long-form publication filled with top quality writers, great articles and fascinating stories. And it’s all about Scottish Football.”
