Well that was the PSG double header then…12-1.
We all knew we would get beaten by the most expensive team ever and whilst none of us like heavy defeats, to channel my inner half glass full guy, there were some positives to take from that game…not many, but more than the home leg.
Immediately following the game i decided to ring up my pal Mark in Argentina in an attempt to pick the bones out of the performance. We both decided that there was no point in analysing the game on a goal by goal basis and trying to pick out who was at fault. we lost, let’s move on, learn what lessons we can and win on Sunday.
The music this week in, at the front end, expected - it’s Atmic Kitten with their cover of the Lustig song. At the end of the podcast it’s the Nirvana cover of the Bowie classic The Man Who Sold The World.

This week I am joined by St Anthony in a chat that was supposed to be about our marvellous 100 yr record breaking achievement but in typical Celtic Underground Podcast fashion it went on a meander.
We started with the Anfield Wrap (neither of us could remember the name) briefly touched on the winning run and then got onto the meat and bones of the team and the challenges of team building. It finished with Saints Ross County preview and has a few mentions of Lawrence Donegan in between.
In recognition of this weeks Country Music Awards the covers have a country fell and also are two generations apart. We have Harry Styles covering Girl Crush and Ray Stevens from 1975 covering Misty in a Country Music style.

This week Harry is joined by Guardian Football and Golf correspondent Ewan Murray. If you pick up your copy of the Guardian at the local paper you will be aware of Ewan for his coverage of the major games in Scottish football and perhaps have worked out that he is a Jambo. If you’re aware of Ewan from his online presence you will either like him or loathe him or see him simply as a “hurting Hun”.
I normally can’t be bothered with people who occassionally take to trolling on twitter but in Ewan’s case I make an exception and must admit I find his interaction with many quite amusing. Ewan and I have a very long ramble through his career and then onto Scottish football. We recorded this just after the loss at home to Bayern so that performance is covered as is Hearts, their new stadium, Pedro, SEVCO coverage and…Airdrie. It’s all explained when you listen.
The music this week is cover versions of a Bee Gees 1971 song and a Stevie Wonder classic. We have the Rev Al Green version of How Can You Mend A Broken Heart and As by George Michael and Mary J Blige.
