Angie – the myth …

The big rumour about this song is that it was written about David Bowie’s wife, Angela. She once wrote in her autobiography that she once walked in on Bowie and Mick Jagger “in bed together” – a story Jagger denies. Apparently the song was wrote to appease her! Keith Richards wrote the title. He said ‘Angie’ it was to do with his daughter. She’s called Angela. Jagger wrote the rest of it.

Don’t believe all you read in the media ……

Angelos Postecoglou is a Greek Australian football manager and former player, who is the our current manager; he was also Australia’s most successful and decorated manager.

When he became our manager as a virtual unknown on 10 June 2021; following the departure of Neil Lennon and a season that saw us lose the coveted “10 in a row” to Sevco. Expectations were high.

After winning the Glen’s vodka Scottish Premiership Manager of the Month award for October, Ange Postecoglou was quick to share the recognition with the rest of his staff and squad. An undefeated month, with crucial wins away at Aberdeen, Motherwell and Hibernian, helped the manager pick up his first accolade as Hoops boss.

Most notably has been the new signing Kyogo Furuhashi who has made an instant impact with 16 goals and a has earned himself a tribute from the fans.

We’ve got Abada, he’s on the wing,
We’ve got Kyogo, he’s doing his thing,
Ange is the leader,
We’ll follow the Celtic all over the world

Within Ange’s short tenure saw the death of beloved Lisbon Lion Bertie Auld.  His death was marked at the Celtic vs Aberdeen game on 28 November 2021.  That meant that former captain Scott Brown and current captain Callum McGregor carried a wreath to the centre circle.  Ange was clearly moved.

This led to the start of the famous ’67 minute song (enhanced by 50,000 lighters in unison around Paradise).

Sixty Seven,
In the heat of Lisbon,
The fans came in their thousands,
To See the Bhoys Become Champ-i-ons

Ange’s first silverware was on 19 December 2021 when we won the Cup Final against Hibernian with Kyogo scoring twice, earning him Man of the Match. The results followed and we are now sitting 10 games unbeaten.  Good luck Ange Postecoglu (from Angie at HWS)!

Ange make the clouds all disappear …….
