Following securing the league, Andrew Smith met with Celtic FC Foundation CEO Tony Hamilton to ask about the work of the Foundation and discuss the forthcoming charity game against the Dortmund Legends. Andrew asks searching questions such as - aren't all chairtie just a tax on the poor?  But Tony robustly defends the work of the Foundation and the input of the club who are by far the biggest contributors to The Foundation.

Winners…again   This Saturday saw the final Glasgow Derby of the league campaign and for listeners to last week’s podcast the result will have come as no surprise.  Despite the comments of pundits, this is a game where form does not go out of the window.  It is a game that the form team (or more appropriately the better team) nearly always win.   Celtic are the better team.  Celtic won.   Whilst the league is not mathematically secured, we’re almost there being 6 points clear with just 2 games remaining.  We therefore got two boys to discuss with Harry...

Fun Bhoys Three   We have the final Glasgow Derby of season 2023/24 coming up this weekend and so we have organised some experienced heads to discuss the prospects with @Paul1888 joining Andrew & Harry to discuss the game.   We roll out the metaphors and the cliches to preview the game in the context of our performance on last weekend when Brendan finally had his full first choice 16 to field.   As Andrew H says - use your testicular metaphor of choice when previewing the game and have some fun.   Enjoy…

Smith and Brady - Dundee review and Hearts preview   This week Andrew H Smith joins Harry to review the performance and result at Dens Park.  The chat takes a meandering turn as the bhoys discuss the events at Dens almost 34 years ago to the day when Celtic really blew the 1979/80 season by losing 5-1 to Dundee during the title run in.  Andrew was there and experienced the vitriol.   When they get on to the 21st Century tie they get on to discuss how brilliant James Forrest is and anyone who disagrees will go on Wolfie Smith’s list.   Finally, the bhoys get to the...

What’s Going On?   There’s hasn’t been a podcast in ages and then, in usual style, two come along at once.  If you’ve not listened, then get your ears around St Anthony’s Recollections podcast out earlier in the week.  It was a short sharp pod all about Paul McStay.   For the longer form podcast (and it’s very long) we have Remy, Lawrence & me asking (and attempting to answer) the simple question - what’s going on?   The answer seems to be Dermot with everything flowing from that!   It’s nearly two hours long so you’ll maybe listen in...

Recollections - Paul McStay   Paul McStay was born on 22nd October 1964 in Hamilton, Lanarkshire. Grand-nephew of former Celtic team captain and manager Jimmy McStay, playing for Celtic was in the family blood. A hotly tipped youth prospect Paul McStay was a member of Celtic Boys Club who burst onto the football scene in remarkable style when he hit two goals and was man of the match as Scotland schoolboys defeated their English counterparts at Wembley in front of a live TV audience in June 1980. He signed for Celtic aged seventeen and made his senior Celtic debut in a 4-0 home Scottish...

Are we at the end of the road   The Green Brigade - ostensibly a small group of fanatical “ultra” supporters below the age of 30 so who better to discuss their behaviours than a group of aging middle aged fans…?   Hullbhoy, Lawrence, Eddie & I appreciate that none of us share the likely demographic of the supporters group that we discuss, but Celtic is a broad church with fans from 1-100 and all within that spectrum are entitled to their views.  Online is principally in one place on the GBand so one element that we discuss is whether the wider fan base are broadly...

Born to lead the green & white   Any goal for Glasgow City, another victory for the cause, another reason to giving another cheer just for the bhoys.   All week I have heard and read ill-informed nonsense about Celtic getting a heavy defeat and responded the same way - have you seen them?  We the best manager in Scotland and one of the best in Britain.  He’ll spend all week getting the team right…and he did.   A marvellous preformance by Celtic.  Bossed the first half and controlled the game to preserve the lead in the 2nd.  Should have scored on the...

Sense and sensibility   Podcast No1 of the new season had 2 of us, podcast No2 had 3 of us and this week, podcast No3 we’ve got 4 (four) of us on it!  Whatever next…?   Following the victory over Aberdeen, we’ve got Eddie, Saint Anthony and Paul T on to discuss the game, where the club are at, signing gossip and the forthcoming game against Killie in the cup.  This weeks’ podcast is not as long as last week’s marathon but it’s still an hour of Celtic chat by middle aged Celtic fans - just what we all need on a regular basis.   Enjoy…

This week is a rather sad podcast. I am sure, like me, whenever someone walks through the door of Celtic Park you are desperate for them to succeed and therefore when it doesn't work out, that person's departure is always tinged with a little sadness.

St Anthony joins Harry to discuss the cup semi final defeat and the confirmed departure of Ronny Deila. Since around February everyone has been aware that Ronny would be leaving in the summer but the nature of the defeat to the Zombies and then the subsequent leaks to the Norwegian media made an announcement before season end inevitable. St Anthony and Harry review the cup final and that discussion meanders onto a review of Ronny's tenure.
