Mark Cooper joins Harry Brady this week to discuss the men who stood in front of last weeks keeprs, the defenders. Historically known as the sieve for its porous attributes Mark and Harry review the famous MoN back three before moving on to a general discussion of the full backs and centre halves in the more traditional back 4's which followed.
Mark's affection for Izzy and MacNamara are not hidden well, nor is his indifference to Paul Telfer.

With Celtic commencing their next campaign in a Group of Champions, and Celtic Underground reaching the milestone of 200 podcasts, this week Harry is joined by The Human Torpedo as they start the process of The Celtic Underground Celtic Champions League XI. This week it is the no1 spot - The Keepers.
Harry and The Human Torpedo manage to make a discussion about 5 players last an hour and at the end it's pretty clear who they think the No1 is out of
Douglas, Hedman, Marshall, Boruc and Forster.
Next week's podcast 200(b) will be the defenders and chosing might be slightly more difficult.

This week sees the long awaited (about 3 weeks) return of Lawrence Donegan to the podcast for the heavily trailed discussion about his @bythemin empire. Lawrence joins Harry to discuss how @bythemin started on twitter and his aim that it might one day be the bastion of proper sports journalism. From this they go on to discuss the Stiliyan Petrov game last week and then the recent Ian Black betting scandal which hasn't been too scandalous and the obvious issues this leads to around gambling and the issues around match fixing.
After that jaunt into non-Celtic stuff the guys then turn their attention to the forthcoming competitive games - Saturday football at Tynecastle and of ccourse the Milan game. After this discussion Harry gives a teaser on the forthcoming 200 podcast series when Celticundergorund.net will venture into picking our best Champions League 11. More to come on that next week.
PS - On the sound turned up, but first time recording a Google+ chat so gie us a bit of slack!

This week Harry is joined by a very special guest - Mr Stiliyan Petrov.
Stiliyan very kindly took time out of his hectic schedule organising the Stiliyan Petrov game at Celtic Park this Sunday to discuss football with a fauning fan. They obviously discuss the forthcoming charity match at Celtic Park where some of the greatest Celts of the last 20 years (and more) will return to once again grace the hallowed grounds. Additionally Stiliyan gives an insight into his time at Celtic and more oimportantly discusses the drive and motivation required for a young footballer to make it at the top level. Once listening I'm sure you'll agree stiliyan is a very compelling speaker - putting us all to shame by being SO articulate in a foreign tongue!
As this podcast is uploaded, a few thousand tickets (max) are still available at £10 & £5. The beneficiaries are the Stiliyan Petrov Foundation and the Trussell Trust. Yes in the 21st Century of one of the worlds richest countries we're playing a game to put food on tables of the poor in our city!
At the end of the podcast, Harry indactes that there may be some special podcasts coming up to mark 200 Celtic Underground podcasts.
