Recent Celtic games have heard the fans singing loudly - ‘Here we go 10 in a row!’ - after Celtic sealed their second consecutive SPL title under Neil Lennon. And the opportunity is certainly there to make…
Like many I have been greatly exorcised by the league reconstruction debate of late and the perceived lost opportunities to make the structure more exciting and move away from the current flawed split. As highlighted…
Like all supporters, we were extremely saddened to hear the news that Sean Fallon has passed away aged 90.
Sean was someone who gave everything to the club he loved and to every supporter he met. The kind words and deeds together with the fun with which Sean lived his life created such a rare and genuinely warm humble man.
The term 'legend' trips off the tongue so easily these days but there can be no doubt that Sean was truly a legend and his contribution to Celtic's development and success can never be overstated.
Sean's humility and total devotion to Celtic can be encapsulated in his own profound yet simple words:
"I was just happy to serve my club in any way I was wanted."
Estadio Nacionale joins Harry Brady to discuss the challenges of supporting Celtic from afar along with the challenges of Doha traffic and getting a decent roll and bacon. Harry then rambles on about the last 16 draw against Juve and then The Human Torpedo presents another tale from the Celtic Wiki - A Rapid Exit.
The music this week are two charity tracks to be downloaded from iTunes - Rod Stewart and the Justice Collective and with our inevitable run to Wembley, Estadio chose Nothing Can Stop Us Now to close.
This week, Harry Brady is joined by Lachie Mor and we also have the return of The Human Torpedo.
Lachie joins Harry to discuss the last three games - Good, Nervous and Ugly. They discuss getting through to the last 16 and how the atmosphere through the Spartak game was tempered by events in Spain. They then move on to domestic matters and the pleasing Killie performance and only breifly discuss Arbroath - we won, that's about it!
There is then a new Celtic Wiki bit - Ten Twinkle Toes, narrated as usual by the Human Torpedo.

The outcome of the Hillsborough inquiry and the renewed support for the Justice For The 96 campaign have once again reminded us of the horrendous way football fans were treated back then and the folly of the recent legislative changes in Scotland which specifically targeted football. Those under the age of 25 may find it hard to comprehend just how poorly ALL members of society were treated the moment the set off from their home to attend a football game – we were scum!
