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.
 

It’s podcast time again and this week it is St Anthony who brings along a special guest when he is joined by Sean McDonagh. Sean has been writing online about the history of Celtic fans in Govan after a brake club banner was found from the early 1900s.  Obviouslythis is a topic close to the heart of Govanite Saint however it will no doubt of interest to all Celtic fans who take an interest in the history of our club.

 

This podcast has been recorded during the best run of domestic form since the Invincible season.  Tonight, as I pull this together, we have thumped Dundee, fresh on the heels of thumping of Hearts at Murrayfield on Sunday.  I don’t know who came up with this forward passing lark but it’s ceryainly transformed the fortunes of the team.

This week the podcast returns with a guest from long long ago on a podcast far far away….Sean Huddleston,, author of Celtic In The 1980’s - The Lost Decade and sometime academic and sometime football conference organiser.

 

The bhoys start with reference to Sean’s book about Celtic in the ’80’s and this leads on to a ramble about how our away European form has (in general) never been that good.  From there it somehow moves on to a discussion about social media and it’s uselessness before somehow the bhoys drag the chat back around to Celtic in Europe via anti-Irish bigotry.

 

It is a truly remarkable ramble that also covers the forthcoming Football Collective Conference which has about 5 tickets left!

Celtic have now scored 10 goals in just two games after struggling in the early part of the campaign and also at the end of last season. Noticeable by its absence in those two games has been the passing for passing’s sake along the back line and the obvious desire of the players to try and find the forward pass. This more front foot thinking was typified in the first goal when Lustig harried by a Hibs player on the touchline, turned and then turned back to play the ball forward to Forrest. Last month and for the preceding 10 months that would have gone backwards to a centre half.

 

Hibs looked like scoring twice and scored twice. Celtic looked like scoring 8 times and did so 4. Like most Hibs games from my memories, this was an excellent domestic game of football because Hibs came to win the game which then creates the space for us. It was a really enjoyable game. Here’s to many more like that this season as we march towards title no8.

 

After the game we had Brendan, Lenny, Eddy and a Hobs player (whose name escapes me).

This week it is once again St aNthony at the helm and in discussion with a guest.  Following on from the succesful debut of St Anthony jnr on the podcast, Saint decides to go through the generations of Celtic fans to a slightly older contributor.

 

St Anthony this week is joined by Matt McGlone.  The pair discuss all current Celtic gossip as well as reviewing the two games since the last podcast.  Saint & Matt discuss the 6-0 thumping of St Johnstone and the 3-1 humbling away at Salzburg.  The bhoys also discuss the Brendan to Villa rumour that was going around as well as Brendan’s comments about squad size.

This week we have a very special new guest.  I’m not going to ruin the surprise in the pre-amble but a clue is that it’s two for the price of one.

 

Anyway, we have been a bit sparse with the podcasts this season, due in part to having a very busy real life and also because it’s much more fun doing podcasts when the football is fun and it’s fair to say fun has been in short supply since mid summer.  We won against St Johnstone and we won against Aberdeen so hopefully, domestically at least, we’re on an upwards trend.

 

Anyway I keep promising and it will come - the CU Top Ten podcast will hit iTunes before the end of the season…I promise.
