Caesar & The Assassin told the inside story of managing Celtic after Jock Stein. This rollercoaster of a journey took us through every kick of the ball in both of Billy’s spells as Celtic boss, together with Davie Hay’s time in the hot-seat sandwiched in between. The Winds of Change picks up the story in 1991 as Liam Brady replaces Billy and the Celtic support were about to have their boast of being ‘faithful through and through’ put to the ultimate test as barren years followed.
Eight Celtic managers, if you include Kenny Dalglish, sat in the Celtic dugout as our manager with some being much more successful than others. The book ends with Martin O’Neill leaving but there was time to add a note about the events of 4 November, 2015 so that the reader can appreciate the task Celtic faced in these years, playing opponents with a loaded dice.
INVINCIBLE by Matt Corr
With a foreword from renowned Parkhead author and historian, David Potter, tells the story of the grand old Glasgow club’s record-breaking 2016/17 season through the perspective of a lifelong Hoops supporter, who follows the Bhoys as events unfold which could not possibly have been envisaged by the worldwide Celtic diaspora just twelve months earlier.
New heroes emerge and memories are created, to be recalled and retold by those with Celtic in their hearts long after those privileged to witness history have passed through Parkhead’s gates for the last time. You will laugh and you will cry, as memories from the author’s five decades of following his beloved team are woven into his record of this incredible campaign.
INVINCIBLE. That was how it felt to be Celtic.
“The 2016/17 INVINCIBLE season will be talked about by Celtic supporters for a long time in the same way as people still talk about 1907/08 and 1966/67. It was a tremendous season. Tremendous events need tremendous recording and recounting. Matt Corr has done just that. This is a worthy addition to the impressive panoply of writing about our great club.’
DAVID POTTER, Celtic FC author & historian
“The story of Celtic’s Wonderful, Magical and INVINCIBLE season is quite brilliantly told by Matt Corr. The quality of his writing and attention to detail is astounding. He manages to take the reader with him at every step on an emotional roller-coaster of a journey through an incredible, thrilling season, which gets to the very essence of what it means to support Celtic. INVINCIBLE raises the bar and sets the standard for others to follow. It is right up there with the very best Celtic books I have ever read.”
