The Celtic Da Podcast returns
You can have all your whipper snapper podcasts with your Xthis and that but there is only one podcast that can continually hark back to the 90s and earlier and it’s this one - the world’s longest running football fans podcast.
We’re now in our 18th season (19th year) and although we may have taken a break, you can be sure that we will always have something old and hackneyed to say about the modern game and this episode is no different.
We discuss the League Cup semi-final victory over Kilmarnock, we discuss VAR, how rubbish Scottish refs are, group think of refs, the transfer window and then touch on the forthcoming St Mirren game. Amazingly in all of that we manage to debate whether the Lambert challenge on Albertz was indeed a penalty.

Tonight, before recording this podcast, I was in a whatsapp debate about how to describe the draw with Shaktar. I described it as brilliant, others said disappointing.
Personally I couldn’t see how you could describe an away UCL prefromance wehere we should and could have won by 2-4 goals as disappointing. Yes, there’s disappointment that we didn’t win but surely it’s absolutely brilliant that we were that good that we feel disappointed about only drawing away?
Anyway, enough of the use of the word disappointment in one small section of text - I am joined by Antony Murray as we discuss the draw with Shaktar, the away game to St Mirren and I also debut my open all mics try-out as Napoli get 2 pens as we record.
The Celtic Steamroller
The Celtic Steamroller
Saturday 3rd September Celtic played Rangers. Saturday 3rd September Celtic toyed with Rangers.
We played them off the park in the first half and coasted the second. You got the impression that if Ange had told the team at half-time that they needed to score another 4, we could have.
We start the podcast with a quick exert from the Heart & Hand Podcast that someone sent us previewing the game, we then move on to a review of the game before a preview of the game against some team from Madrid.
We hope you like it as much as we liked recording it.
Tifo or Tifno...?
Tifo or Tifno…?
Sometimes the title doesn't really give an insight into the real content of the podcast but I've got to write something and I quite liked this so, there you go.
Anyway, this week the middle aged podcast by middle aged fans for EVERYONE returns (have we mentioned we are the world’s longest running football fans podcast?). Anyway, back to the point…we are enjoying lige under Ange and so we are enjoying life in general. Lawrence is on his usually summer sabbatical to the Raploch and Eddie’s life is just one big long holiday. With both of them having time to spare I connected the phone line, dialled them up, listened to that weird screaching noise you get with dial up internet and I connected to the two guys to discuss life, the arts and the football.
First up was the V & A. Next up was Eddie discussing whether Tifo’s are for him and finally we reviewed the Aberdeen game and then previewed the Ross County game.
It’s a bit of a ramble and if you want xyz and tactis chat…you’ll need to look elsewhere.
The Happiness Edition
When we started this podcast (did I mention it’s the world’s longest running football fans podcast) we never thought it would last 17 seasons. It’s ebbed and flowed and the young kids have arrived with their xg, xa, xt, abc, easy as 1,2,3 but we’ll always be here - the middle aged podcast for the middle aged fan who loves the hoops and gets mildly irritated.
And so we are back for that record breaking 17th season (every season is record breaking because I’m not sure I’ve mentioned it but we’re the world’s longest running football fans podcast). This week I am joined by Duncan, St Anthony and Lachie Mor to preview the season, discuss the Aberdeen game and even get around to questioning if Queens Park can become Glasgow’s second team.
One Win From The Title
Celtic today secured a draw against Rangers to put us just one win from the title. It's the 4th time in a row we have secured either a draw or win against the team from the South Side of the city.
It's a game that Celtic had the chances to put to bed before the Rangers equaliser. We didn't and a few players looked exhausted towards the end but we held on, secured the draw and now only a dire change of form will prevent Ange picking up another trophy and his first Scottish title at the first time of asking.
This week I am joined by Eddie Pearson and Lawrence Donegan to discuss their favourite podcasts, whether Zebedee is an outdated cultural reference and the meaning of various police hat colours.
That was a really good episode and captured a lot of what I remember as well. I too was at the game and was sitting in the front of the main stand in line with the penalty area where most of the goals went in. Wasn’t wearing a brown overcoat, though was probably close to them. Whenever I think of the game I have a vivid memory as well of Joe Miller having the chance to pass to Andy Walker. Still frustrates me. I seem to remember wee Joe getting subbed as a sub in a Cup semi around this time so maybe not his best period. If Big Billy had subbed wee Joe for a wrong decision at this point, who knows how it would’ve ended. Really glad I was at the game but still remember that gut wrenching feeling when Scepovic scored. The sudden silence then noise of players and benches celebrating, followed by groans and sharp exits. Enjoying these episodes, keep them coming.
Eddie Pearson is a banger .
Yours , momo.
Dean Mitchell love the tic
Best app ever and it has been so much better than the triable from the other side of Glasgow
