Playing for the LostBhoys

Last season was, at best, a frustrating one for the Celtic fans. At worst it was a torment to endure or a good reason for hibernation. You can now relive it thanks to Playing For The LostBhoys, a collection of the season's best writing from the LostBhoys website.

And best of all it's for a really terrific charity.

Dave Harper from LostBhoys has kindly provided some more info:
First of all let me explain that all the profits from this publication will be going to the Good Child Foundation in Thailand which is a charity that is very close to all the LostBhoys teams hearts. The Good Child Foundation which works in conjunction with the Triamsuksa School provides education placements for children of all abilities including those pupils with Down Syndrome.

The charity, headed by Celtic fan Paul Lennon and his wife Pun, has really captured the minds of the Celtic family and along with their year long volunteer; Irishman Chris Joyce, they have done a wonderful job promoting the charity and getting their story out there. The trio have appeared in many YouTube videos with their pupils singing various Celtic/Irish songs that would be bring a smile to the coldest of hearts, they also appeared on LostBhoys podcast number 44.

Playing For The Lostbhoys chronicles the 2009/2010 topsy-turvy season of Glasgow Celtic Football Club through the eyes of the LostBhoys, a group of fans who came together by setting up a website and producing a weekly podcast discussing their beloved Hoops .

Although, ultimately a disappointing season on and off the pitch for the Club, we hope you "enjoy" the good humoured articles and blogs of Chris, Jamie, Casey, Eddie, Harper, Charlie, Gary, Joe & Conall as they discussed all the games and everything else going on in the world of Celtic on a week by week basis.

As results went against the team, passions flowed and arguments raged over the manager's position, team selections, player performances and the direction in which the Club was going. Hope soon turned to despair and optimism transpired to realism as the team limped to a trophyless season.

The LostBhoys hail (hail) from all corners of the globe, this is our story and your story as we laughed, cried, ranted and raved but never gave up on Glasgow Celtic FC, the club we ALL love so much.
