After the final whistle this past Sunday, and the scoreline was revealed, the first image I had in my mind was a scene of a laughing Peter Lawwell, after he made a joke at the expense of Them. He said, “well last night we had a 29 million offer for Hooper, from an unknown agent, from an unknown club from another universe.” This comment prompted laughter from some of the media in attendance as well as himself. He seemed to have loved how sharp witted he was in the moment and had a deep appreciation for his delivery. But in that moment, in the Philadelphia late summer sun after we were gubbed by Them 4-2, it hit me as to why he let out an uncontrollable belly laugh. He was laughing at all of us, the Celtic support.
The Celtic Network was created to give Celtic fans a credible alternative to mainstream media and after the first two months we’re delighted to announce that we are starting to deliver.
We have already had 50,809 unique visitors with roughly 8,000 of those visitors leaving the site to visit our partner sites. Most sites would moan about that amount of visitors leaving to go on to other sites but we are delighted with the numbers and we hope that over time the numbers will increase.
After a successful start TCN are now looking for guest bloggers from the Celtic support. Yesterday @allymonc became our first guest blogger and he set a cracking standard with his thoughts and opinion on Dr John Reid.
