Welcome Home

Welcome Home The podcast is back for another episode and we have some old and older voices for you in the names of Lawrence and Eddie. Yes, Lawrence is on and fresh from his recently return on a Sunday night on Twitter Spaces, we are joined by Eddie Pearson. The boys go on to discuss Ange-ball, whether the board should get praise or not for the transfer window. Also following the departure of French Eddie we discuss the top 3 post Larsson strikers. We also take 5 mins to discuss the...


Ange-ball Rolls On

Ange-ball Rolls On Celtic have tonight come through what was at times a very nervy evening (a very self-inflicted one) to progress to the group stages of the Europa League and they can now prepare for Sunday. I was unsure about organising a post game podcast. I always recall Mark Cooper bemoaning that everytime I organised one with hime we lost. But I am not a believer in “what’s for you won’t go past you” or the concept of “tempting fate” so I organised one. We lost but we’re...


The Game Ep 7 Barca 125 - 21082021 00

The Game Episode 7 - Barca 125 November 7th 2012. The night before a Mass was held in St Mary’s to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the forming of Celtic Football Club and that week illustrated that Big Billy’s words about there being a fairytale about this club were never more true. We has invited the board of Barca to share in our commemoration mass and the following night they visited the Cathedral of noise that was Celtic Park as 60,000 fans and 13 players put on a show that had...


Celtic and our Irish heritage

Celtic and our Irish heritage This week St Anthony takes control of the podcast to discuss Celtic and it’s Irish heritage. Saint is joined by Sean McDonagh who lecture politics and Scots/Irish history at OU. There cannot be a Celtic fan out there who does not know some basics of the coubs formation and heritage however it is always good to get the details from an expert in the field and Sean provides that in spades here. Enjoy….


The Game Episode 6 - Udinese draw and F UEFA

The Game Episode 6 - Udinese draw and F’ UEFA The current situation at Celtic could be better and so our guest wanted to pick a game from happier times. It’s the winter of 2011 and the team has had a dramatic turnaround since being 3 nil down at Rugby Park and Neil Lennon looked like being on the way out. They pulled things back in the 2nd half of that game and started to really motor. At the same time RFC where spiralling to their death and we were all having a right laugh on this...


Ange and the starman Podcast Xtra

Podcast Xtra Ange & the starman On Saturday31st July Celtic commence the new league season away at Tynecastle. The current state of the first team squad has some fans concerned but we have the new Swede and an update on the new Japanese striker in these pre-game interviews from Ange Postecoglou and Carl Starfelt. Enjoy…


Season 16 - Lets go round again

Season 16 - Let’s go round again Baby we’re back! Welcome to the 16th season of the world’s longets running football fans podcast. To celebrate our new season we will have NO new features NO new graphics NO new music NO new opinions The podcast will be just as you like - same old usual rubbish but it’s this consistency that has kept our listener numbers the same all these years. We really appreciate everyone who takes the time to listen or rate us on iTunes. We don’t have any...


Welcome Ange and Dom

Welcome Ange & Dom Today was the official unveiling of Ange Postecoglou as Celtic manager and of Dom McKay as Celtic CEO. Both spoke very well. Talk is cheap as the negative people say however I was very pleased with what I heard today. No-one comes into a new job and criticises the people or the past but it’s clear, reading between the lines, that Dom wants to address the stagnation in our business model over the past 10 years and Ange will have his own people in coaching roles...


A View From Down Under

The View from Down Under Ange Postecoglou is the new manager of Celtic. Fans are filled with trepidation about a manager with no European track record. The pessemists are trotting out the usual “he’s sh!te3” stuff whilst the optimists are noting the exceptional level of positivity coming out of Australia for this guy. Based upon this mixed view, I called up our friend Mike Mehall-Wood (now based down in Aus) and sought his view. Enjoy…


Ange Postecoglou First Interview

Ange Postecoglou First Interview Celtic have today appointed Ange Postecoglou as the new manager of the club and we have the audio from his first interview. Interstingly in the chat that follows with Dom McKay, he once again mentions modernisation. It seems to be his theme and listeners to the last podcast will know we heartily agree. Dominic McKay: Ange is an outstanding leader and an outstanding manager Dominic McKay is delighted that Celtic have appointed an experienced...


An analogue club in a digital age?

An analogue club in a digital age This week we’re back to talk about The Celtic! We will be having more of The Game series but we thought we’d take a break from that to discuss the managerial situation at the club. First we’ve had the rejection by Eddie Howe and then the appointment of Ange (or at least the likely appointment of Ange as nothing has happened yet…). This week we get Saint Anthony, Hullbhoy and Sean together to discuss the situation at the club. Enjoy…


The Game Ep 5 - Tirollercoaster

The Game Ep5 - Tirollercoaster This game had everything - a new team under a new manager with a new striker scoring an og in a 9 goal thriller where Celtic were out with just 6 minutes to go. It had a full house and so everyone who was a Tim at the time could say “I was there” but for some reason it’s never one of those games everyone talks about with reverence…and it should be. Celtic 6 Tirol Innsbruk 3. What a night. The Celtic Wiki describes it as follows: An incredible...


The Game Ep4 - Boavista Away 2003

The Game Ep4 - Boavista Away 2003 For those of us lucky enough to remember Seville it was all made possible by this night - a victory away at Boavista. A crap game, a sclaffed shot and a penalty claim….but we were through. Remy of ByTheMinCeltic fame joins Antony and I to share his recollections of The Game. This is how The Celtic Wiki describes it… With so much at stake, the opening exchanges were tentative, but Celtic settled first and created the game's first decent...


The Game Ep3 - Partizan Belgrade

The Game Ep3 - Partizan Belgrade To this day, this is one of the most incredible games I have ever attended. Yes I’ve been at the Barca game, the Invincibles Cup Final Game, victories and defeats at Ibrox but for utterly incredible drama few can match this game - Celtic 5, Partizan Belgrade 4. A future Dundee Utd Manager, the dad of a future Celtic striker and a guy wearing trackie bottoms - this game had it all (all except a Celtic victory). Antony and I are joined by Lawrence...


The Game Ep2 - Palm Sunday

The Game Ep2 - Palm Sunday This week marks the 30th anniversary of the Palm Sunday gubbing of Rangers, a game that holds special memories for our guest Kevin Schofield as it was his first Glasgow Derby. It was dark times for the club and these victories were smal glimpses of light. We had beaten Rangers the week before for what became known as the ST Patrick’s Day Massacre. That was a game that saw Rangers receive 3 red cards and so for this match, Not The View gave out red cards and...


The Game Ep 1 - Shame Game

The Game Episode 1 - Shame Game 10 years ago this month was The Shame Game. A silly title for a game that saw no shame apart from the terrible behaviour of the soon to be defunct Rangers players and assistant manager. But with its notoriety and coming to the fore we thought we’d kick off the new series with a review of that game. Here’s how the Celtic Wiki describes it: As one-side a match against the Huns you'll ever see. Celtic were on top throughout this game, and despite the...


Podcast Xtra David Turnbull John Kennedy

Podcast Xtra - John Kennedy & David Turnbull Celtic are looking to engage better with the fan media and this was the first step in 2021 of that new engagement with a specially organised fan media press conference. To be fair to the club, bringing this together is slightly more complicated than it seems. As I’ve joked recently, there are now a plethora of podcasts and how do the club make sure everyone gets access, how do they balance this with those fans who do excellent written work...


Pieces of Eight

Pieces of Eight Yes, it’s the pirate podcast (you’ll understand when you listen) and we are reviewing the tenure of Neil Lennon as Celtic manager. We look at his departure last time, his re-appointment and assess whether this was some catastrophic turn of unlucky events for Neil or the inevitable outcome of appointing someone not qualified for the job and I would suggest that the panel have a range of opinions along that spectrum. A change is gonna come at Celtic and we suspect that...


Celts on the rocks

Celts on The Rocks This week I am joined by Lachie Mor and Duncan Smillie of Glasgow Rocks to discuss the current situation at Celtic. We review the inept Ross County performance and then go on to discuss the nature of the vitriol against senior people at the club (manager CEO) and question if that is the “Celtic Way” - can we not disagree with the board’s decision on Lennon without being so disagreeable? Duncan has a go at me for the agressive language of the Ferencvaros podcast. ...


Marketing Celtic

Marketing Celtic I know, I know, all we want is a succesful team on the pitch and you have no time for all this marketing and “brand” chat that revolves around modern football and if that’s the sum total of your thoughts on marketing a football club then this podcast is not for you. If, however, you see maximising income as the way of getting the best players in the pitch then hopefully you will find this of interest. I look at our club as failing to communicate well with the...
