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.
 

There are fewer games bigger in football than Champions League matches and in Glasgow these don't come much bigger than Celtic v Barca.  We are only in the embryonic stages of the Rodgers revolution but already we can all see that the club is taking it's first steps on what looks like it will be a wonderful journey and the podcast starts off with chat from Brendan giving an insight into his vision for this club.  He does this whilst interweaving chat about Barca and the forthcoming Cup Final.

 

After the Brendan chat Jack Lyons and I have a brief conversation about how the two teams may set up before the podcast returns to the main pre-Barca press conference with chat from Broony and more from the manager.  If you wonder why the main conference occasionally jumps from one topic to the next it's where I've chopped out the Spanish translation and just missed the start of the next question.

Continuing our series of interviews with celebrity Hoops fans, this week we are joined by a man plying his trade in another form of "football", that is Rugby Football. This week we are joined by Leeds Rhino forward and MASSIVE Celtic fan Keith Galloway.

Keith, son of a Dundonian, was born in Sydney and played for the Leeds Rhinos. A New South Wales State of Origin and Australian international representative forward, he previously played for the Wests Tigers and Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks. Keith is also an ambassador for 3 charities.

The joys of this podcast are the many occasions when we get to chat with Celtic fans who are experts in another field and this week I had the pleasure to sit down and chat Celtic and music with the gentleman James Grant.

Brought up in Bridgeton then Castlemilk, James was part of that group of Scottish musicians that was so prominent in the 1980's.  His career commenced with the band Friends Again but James really came into his own as the front man of Love & Money.  Hopefully you find this chat as fascinating as I did.

Naturally the podcast makes reference to The Celtic FC Foundation Christmas appeal and there'll be links on the site.  Also St Anthony (Stephen Murray) has a new book coming out just in time for Christmas.  It follows on from his book about the 4-2 season Ten Men won The League and is about his (and many other's) first Celtic hero.  The book is Kenny of The Celtic and is launched this coming week;

Following from this long ranging discussion we then have the return of an old favourite with the dusting down of the Tales From The Celtic Wiki. In conjunction with the Celtic Graves Society we bring you Patrick Gallacher.

This week Harry is joined by Matt Clark, manager of Australia's first world heavyweight champion...for 3 weeks. Matt is also a Celtic man and the podcast is a fascinating meander explaining a second generation Australian, who's Grandad questioned Rudolph Hess ('with Whiskey on his breath") came to be such an avid Celtic fan. It jumps from the Hess story to being his fighter being punched by the Chechen President, being secretly drugged and then cleared through to predictions for Celtic Playing in Aberdeen and Germany.

A joyride of a podcast it also includes new music from Glasgow band The Snuts.

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.

Enjoy!

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.

Enjoy.

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
