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...


Podcast Extra - Post Hamilton Reaction

The slump continues as Celtic reach 69 games unbeaten in domestic football. At this rate we’ll be slumping ourselves to back to back trebles! Following on from completely dominating the game against Hibs but losinga 2 goal lead we had the visit of Hamilton. An excellent strike and a Jozo gift almost lead to Hamilton getting two goals in this game too but in truth this was a game that would only ever have one winner. Ntcham was excellent again and Edouard had some good chances that he...


Progress Despite Anderlecht Angst

Tuesday night was a pivotal game in our season. Provided we didn’t lose by 3 or more goals we could enjoy European football after Christmas and this was achieved but perhaps not in the way we would have liked…but we’re there. Following the complaint by Mark Cooper that he always gets the graveyard shift of a post Euro defeat I decided to get another guest on this weeks podcast and so we have Lachie Mor. As the podcast was recorded we received breaking news about the basket case of...


Purgatory in Paris

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...


A 100 Year Country Ramble

This week I am joined by St Anthony in a chat that was supposed to be about our marvellous 100 yr record breaking achievemnet 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 challneges of team building. It finised with Saints Ross County preview and has a few mentions of Lawrence Donegan in...


Ewan Murray on a Football Ramble

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...


Not The View Is Thirty

Celtic have fanzines older than some top flight clubs - Not The View is 30! For fans under the age of 40 it’s always been there but for those of us of a certain age it was an essential part of Celtic culture growing up. Perhaps it was the arrival of Souness at Rangers that spawned it or perhaps it was just luck but with everything that happened at Celtic in the first 7 years of its existance NTV was essential reading. Without NTV perhaps Celts For Change may not have happened. ...


Podcast Extra - Brendan Book Launch

This weeks podcast extra is Brendantastic. We start off with a brief chat before Brendan went on stage for his book launch at the Armadillo in Glasgow and then we have both Brendan and Leigh in fine fettle after the 1-1 home draw against Kilmarnock. There is irritation in from Leigh about the failure to get a win and frustration in Brendan’s body language but none of us will complain if we get another treble but more importantly if resting players for ushc games facilitates Europe past...


Can It Get Any Better

Sorry for the break for the past few weeks but we’ve been busy but we’re back. A football fans podcast from the guys behind The Celtic Underground and now in our 12th season possibly the greatest time in those 12 years to be a fans of the hoops and maybe longer. Officially the best football fans in the world, we support a great team that is also in a different league to the rest of Scottish football. Since the last podcast we’ve defeated Hibs to reach the first final of the season,...


Anticipating Anderlecht

Following the comfortable 2-0 victory in our second Glasgow Derby of the season (after a more tightly contested game against Glasgow’s second club at Firhill) we now have perhaps our most important Champions League game of the season coming up. With such an important fixture I thought I’d continue our new podcast guests with a foreign based journalist, from Airdie, working for a French news agency. New music comes from Tuvband and Mark Sharp. Enjoy…


We Battered Them

We Battered Them Make no mistake, whilst this wasn’tanother 5-1 victory we once again showed, on their patch, that the newest version of Rangers Football Club are a million miles away from competing with Celtic. Not only are they a million miles away from competing with Celtic but as today’s league table shows, they’re quite a way from being the second or even 3rd best team in Scotland. Audio was recorded at the game to try and capture the emotion of the day and then I dialled up...


The Hail Hail Trail

This week Michael McCourt of The Celtic FC Foundation joined us to discuss the new fund raising initiative the Hail Hail Trail. Time to coincide with our 130th Birthday on 6th November, Michael explains how everyone, everywhere can get involved in this 130 mile walk over a 6 week window - listen in and see what you can do (already 2 sistsers in San Francisco have signed up). Prior to Michael we have Brendan’s press conference following the Ross County game. The Covers this week are...


Stuff Happens - A PSG Review

Tonight (as we record this) Celtic were on the reciving end of a 5-0 defeat to PSG. I expected to lose so I’m not too down because I believed that this group would always come down to the head to heads between ourselves and Anderlecht for European football after Christmas. Mark & I therefore discuss the game and highlight our flaws, but hopefully in not a too negative way. Personally my biggest fear is the consequences of the idiot who came onto the park and the hope that this doesn’t...


PSG Preview - Moneybags Edition

The Champions League is returning to Celtic Park and we will have a team with over £800m worth of talent gracing the green green grass of home… and PSG are not too bad either (boom boom). Prior to the UCL first group stage game, there was the usual round of press conferences and we managed to get the audio from Brendan and Olivier Ntcham pre-game. There is a wee bit of the translators in there and also if it sounds like Olivier is answering some questions with a French accent & some...


CU Xtra - Roberts Returns PR7

With the wonderful nature of modern social media and without any overhyping from the club, fans have managed the make the return of Patrick Roberts the signing coup of the last few seasons. That’s not to say it’s a bad thing, just a wonderful way the fans have whipped up the fervour on this. As we pull this audio together it’s looking like another French translator may be required at the club, but we’ll see. This is the audio from the #PR7 press conference and some exclusive chat we...


Draw of Champions

The end of summer is signaled by the Champions League Draw. It is the moment when Europe’s elite are drawn together for nights of excitement under the lights and today we got glamour and and possible hope for Europe past Christmas. Harry spoke with Hullbhoy and the two discuss the draw and how we got there with the victory over Astana. we also hear from assistant boss Chris Davies and Kieran Tierney and Olivier Ntcham. Cover versions were suggested by Sean Hamilton and Derek McLean...


So Close You Can Almost Touch It

So close you can almost touch it. Wasn’t Wednesday fantastic? Reaching this round of Champions League qualification is very special. We know we have European football until Christmas but these two games will determine whether that in the Champions League or the Europa League. The anthem starts, the nerves jangle and the game gets going for a crucial double header. There was much debate on whether the sigings had been enough but Brendan had faith that the Invincibles squad is good...


CU Xtra - Brendan After Astana

CU Xtra - Brendan & Astana Manager If you thought only Colonel Gaddafi held press conferences in a tent then you’ve not been to Celtic Park on a Champions League night. Following the stunning 5-goal victory we had the press conferences. I expected the defeated coach to say a few words and go. Unfortunately he was first in and he talked. And the transaltions were long! To avoid the pain I swapped around the order and we have Brendan followed by the Astana Manager. as best...
