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.
