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.
 

This week St Anthony is joined by another star of the hoops from the late 70's and early 80's, Davie Provan.  For the 40 somethings and upwards Davie was an excellent winger who (along with Murdo McLeod)  was able to fire in the odd spectacular free kick the most famous of which gets a wee airing on this podcast.

 

Davie was perhaps unforunate to come up against John Robertson and Davie Cooper otherwise he may have won more caps for Scotland and his career was cut short by ME, an illness which some 30 years later is still not that well understood.  His impact on the team and the way the fans thought of him perhaps reflected in circa 42,000 turning up for his testimonial on a cold November night in 1987 (these were the days when a big crowd was 35,000 against Hibs or Aberdeen).  For younger fans Davie is a media pundit.

 

The first song is from the chart when he signed, the last when he scored THAT free kick. 

 

 

Enjoy.

This week St Anthony returns with another former Celtic star from many of our youths - Mike Conroy.

 

Mike signed for Celtic in 1978 and scored on his debut - unfortunately that was a 4-1 defeat to Hibs.  Mike was at Celtic at a time when the middle of the park had good young talent and competed for a starting place with the likes of Tommy Burns, Mudro McLeod, Davie Provan, Johnny Doyle, Dom Sullivan and Paul McStay.  These were the days before squad rotation and when teams won leagues using the same 11 starting players week after week.  Like our previous guest Sullivam, Mike eventually moved on to find regular first team football.  A man with Celtic heritage, Mike gave his all for the jersey.

 

Enjoy.

This week St Anthony joins Harry Brady to discuss all things Celtic, the season past, manager past and the manager future.

 

At the time of recording the two gents had a good idea that Ronny Deila would be the next Celtic manager, but nothing was confirmed.  This didn't stop them from doing what all good Celtic fans have been doing online and extrapalate from the 3 online articles in English about Deila into a full and detailed review of the "potential" new guy.

 

In addition to the new guy, the pair also take time to discuss the best signing strategy and Harry decides to play the awkward bugger and play devils advocate to every idea St Anthony proposes - ENJOY!
