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...

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...

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...

CU Podcast Xtra - Celtic Post Match v Hearts Aug 2017

Saturday saw the opening game of the new season with the league flag unfurled for the 6th consecutive year and the umpteenth year if we discount the cheating years. After the game Jon Daly, Leigh Griffiths, Christophe Berra and Brendan Rodgers spoke with the press. We couldn't be arsed getting in to hear Daly and therefore missed the newsworthy chat! Anyway, here's the others who took part. PS - The hearts media guy has a weird haircut. It looks like he cut the fringe himself after a...

The Celtic Underground - Room For Growth or Maxed Out

This weeks podcast is all about the finances of Celtic - is there scope for growth or are we all maxed out? We know that the only thing that matters in football is winning on the pitch but that is determined by the quality of player and quality of manager at the club and THAT is largely determined by the money you have to spend, specifically when it comes to the Champions League and European Football in general. With the draw for Europe pending I therefore wanted to speak with two Tims...

The Celtic Underground - Victory In Norway

There is nothing better after a nail biting game to be able to listen to some Celtic chat, whoever is producing it. There is nothing worse after a defeat than recording said Celtic chat so my night was on a knife edge. Not only with the Celtic game but whether I would be having an enjoyable or frustrating podcast chat with Mark Cooper. Fortunately it was the former. Mark Cooper and I discuss the victory over Rosenborg that guarantees European football to Christmas and we discuss the...

The Celtic Underground - Bans Banners and Brigades

This past week has seen the feel good factor kicked the the baws at Celtic Park with the stramash over the Green Brigade followed by the Rangers Fraud whitewash and then the lack lustre home performance against Rosenborg. The Rosenborg game was played after this podcast was recorded and this is actually part 2 of the long chat Hullbhoy and I had about all things Celtic earlier in the week. Part 1 has already been uploaded and covers the football and the supreme court decision. This...

The Celtic Underground - Linfield Rosenborg and the Supreme Court

So, what do we have to talk about….Haryy and Hullbhoy pondered that question and the chat quicker meandered into 2 hours of Celtic chat so we’ve decided that this should be cut down into two podcast - one mainly football and one mainly banners. This is mainly football, with a bit of what to do with cheats. The bhoys discuss the recent Linfield victory and the forthcoing tie against Rosenborg but as this podcast was being recorded the SPFL made some more noises about letting cheats go...

The Celtic Underground - BBCgms Chat On Title Stripping

The big talking point in Scottish football is the Supreme Court decision which confirms the scale of the Rangers cheating during the latter half of the calamitous David Murray era. We will no doubt have a detailed podcast on that soon but one key point to know - The top clubs DO have a large say in the actions of the football authorities. Pressure from Celtic, Aberdeen and perhaps Hibs & Hearts would result in a judicial review of the LNS decision. Celtic have made an important statement...

The Celtic Underground - Season Review 2016/17

When Brendan arrived we knew that season 2016/17 was going to be something special, but no-one could have foreseen just how wonderful it was. Few if any of us will ever see a team go the entire domestic season in Scotland unbeaten and in the process pick up every domestic trophy with the youths chipping in too. The Celtic Underground team always peruse the key moments from seasons past and this year is no different so Harry is joined by Hullbhoy and Mark Cooper to discuss the key games...

The Celtic Underground - A Full Thorough Res 12 Update

In 2012 our greatest rivals, Rangers Football Club entered administration, they never exited it. They limped along, finished the season and died. The story of that death is a decades long story of cheating in the vain attempt to compete with Celtic. This is a podcast about that cheating. As most of you will know, the blame for the death of Rangers was laid at the door of Craig Whyte by the fans of the that club and the media. Such was the reach of the established order that when poor...
