Peer Group Pressures

We’re back! After some intermittent coverage this season, the podcast is back with a bang for 2019 and like a middle aged man put on a prune diet by his doctor we’ll be more regular than ever through the rest of the season. MArk and I pick up where we left off, discussing the AEK game and criticising the club for have a poor signing strategy….but this time it’s different. This time Mark has some facts and stats to back up his position that we should be performing MUCH better in...


Celtic and The Gorbals

There can be few areas outside the Calton and East End of Glasgow more synonymous with the club than The Gorbals. Situated just on the south of the Clyde it has been home yo legions of Celtic fans for the 130 years of our club and if you follow @Evergreencsc on twitter you will know that he is THE man to go to when looking to discuss Celtic and the Gorbals. Following on from the last podcast with St Anthony discussing Celtic and Govan, he follows it up with a chat about Celtic and The...


Celts in Govan

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...


Huddling Along The Collective

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...


Podcast Xtra - 10 Goal Hibs Thriller

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....


Saint and Matt

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. ...


St Anthony At The Double

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...


Petrov on Charity Cancer and Winning Glasgow Derbies

This week we once again won a Glasgow Derby playing the opposition off the park…it never gets boring, so on the podcast we have the postgame chat from Brendan, Broony, Gerrard and a Rangers player, we also have music from Daniel Boone and Public Enemy - Don’t Believe The Hype AND we have the opinion on Saturday’s game from Celtic legend Stiliyan Petrov. In addition to the game on Sunday past, Stan also talks about the game this Saturday between his side and a James Milner 11. A Match...


Brendan Reaction To Another Derby Win

Celtic thumped Rangers today with a performance that was every bit as convincing as the 5-0 victory last season. The game was everything that could be expected for those who’ve watched brief bits of Rangers games this season; they concede pocession and look to score on the counter or from hoof’s up the park by McGregor. They conceded pocession in spades today and the first time they constructed an attack in the game resulted in our goal as they became streteched and their lack of pace at...


Not The View of a Game Against Them

The new season is upon us and the 13th season of the Celtic Underground podcast is also here. We’ve had a summer break and the CU Top Ten podcast will be up soon along with a review of the omnishables transfer window, meantime we need to get going and thump The Huns so we have St Anthony and Average Joe Miller review the life and times of Not The View and also discuss the first game against them of the new season. Enjoy…


Podcast Xtra - The Post Livi Interviews

This week saw the return of domestic competitive football and Celtic hosted Livingston on Flag Day. We saw the return of the usual stuff - sympathetic refereeinginside the first 5 mins when Celtic were denied a stonewall penalty, an opposition side sitting in stretching 6 - 7 men across the edge of the 18 yard box and Leigh Griffiths trying just too hard when he came on as a sub…oh and there was the switch off by Jozo to allow the opposition to score. After the game we heard from...


The 2017.18 End of Season Review

The season is over but the talking never stops and of course how can we not stop talking about a double treble season? In order to fill the void of the summer we have the special guests, season reviews and player ratings to go through and so first up is the Celtic Underground End of Season Review and with such a season we need all hands on deck to discuss it and so joining Harry are Mark Cooper, Stephen Wray, St Anthony and Antony Murray. The bhoys chat starts with the transfer window...


Chatting With Peter Lawwell

This week we are joined by the Celtic CEO. Yes big Pedro himself sat down on the joint CU & ByTheMin Couch to discuss all things Celtic. The chat is wide ranging and we could have covered one hundred and one subjects, but you know that you’ve got 30 minutes with Peter so you have to be selective so Paul & I from ByTheMinCeltic decided we should focus on the future and specifically those matters that impact most on our quality of football enjoyment. The chat was originally organised...


Back For Good?

This week we have a podcast guest returning after 6 years! You will recall the days of Eddie Pearosn presenting when I was just a regular guest along with many others including one Antony Murray. The problem was when Eddie wandered off to his cave after taking his vows of abstenance and austerity, he took his roladex with him and the contact details of many guests were lost forever…or so I thought. Stumbling around Europe I recently unearthed Antony begging on the streets of...


Magnificent 7up

This week we celebrate the 7 in a row champions - we didn’t just win it, we won it in style! Celtic today were absolutely bloody brilliant. From the very first minute we were up for the challenge, forcing 3 corners inside the first 5 minutes or so and anyone at the game (whatever team they support) would have known at that point that we were going home as Champions however few could have expected the utter destruction we wrought on our opponents. We destroyed them and were it not for...


Moments From The Glittering Prize

This week I am joined by Stephen Wray to discuss the Hibs game and preview the game against New Rangers. The diea behind the podcast was to keep it to just those two gmes but with the end approaching and the type of season we’ve had it’s difficult to not meander into a discussion about some of the performances this term and what players will have a “could do better” on their report card. Despite this discussion on the frustrations of the season we do ove on to preview the game at the...


Big Game Players Trump Rank Rotten

This week is a little self-indulgent. It is 15 minutes short of two hours long because we just wanted to revel in the glory of Sunday. Sunday wasn’t just about the score; it was about the manner of our victory. An imperious performance of a team at the top of their game who knew that we were vastly superior to our rivals. Following last week’s rather somber and critical podcast we had to get Mark Cooper back on to expound on his love of Tom Rogic and we got Hullbhoy also on to assist Mark...


Passive Passers En-Route to Treble

This week regulars Harry & Mark Cooper are joined by a man who is no stranger to the Celtic podcast world but is a debutant on The Celtic Underground podcast, Mr Stephen Wray. We went into the podcast to discuss the lesser quality performances of the team this season and admitted that, considering we are just 3 wins from completing a double treble that it may seem a little negative however hopefully it’s just honest analysis. Following on from this we have a brief chat about the SPFL...


Podcast Xtra - Ross County Post Game Chat

Today Celtic came up against Ross County and in front of a sold out Celtic Park (bar some empty seats of non attending season book holders) they ran out comfortable 3-0 victors. It was not Ross County’s day. They gave away a silly penalty, their captain jumped on Scott Browns balls and gpt sent off and their keepr had a back spasm which resulted in him having to leave the park. From a Celtic perspective the main players are coming back. Armstrong had a great game and was deserved man...


Rosemary Burns

This week Saint Anthony is joined by a very special guest - Rosemary Burns. Rosemary discusses her work with the Tommy Burns Skin Cancer Trust and of course life and football with Tommy. The Tommy Burns Skin Cancer Trust was founded in 2009 by the Burns family after the Celtic legend lost his battle with skin cancer on 15th May 2008. This year will be the 10th anniversary of Tommy’s passing and the Celtic Graves Society will also be marking his passing with a ceremony to celebrate his...
