Is it really 15 years ago? Time flies is a bit of a cliche but it really is hard to believe Celtic really did face Porto in Seville. It was a thrilling time for those who follow the Parkhead side. From the brilliant supporter stories, to dancing to the Las Ketchup before kick-off, it was all fun and games until the final result. Martin O'Neill's side side came up short as the Portuguese giants won 3-2, with Derlei poking homethe winner in extra time.

The only people more nervous than Hoops supporters were SQA adjudicators as thousands of teenagers headed off to sunny Spain to watch their heroes in the middle of exam season. John Hartson's absence due to a back injury was keenly felt but the players who … [Read more...] about It’s 15 years since Celtic were in Seville but where are they now?

Rightwing activists are launching a nationwide drive to persuade public-sector trade union members to tear up their membership cards and stop paying dues, posing a direct threat to the progressive movement in America. Documents obtained by the Guardian reveal that a network of radical conservative thinktanks spanning all 50 states is planning direct marketing campaigns targeted personally at union members to encourage them to quit. The secret push, the group hopes, could cost unions up to a fifth of their 7 million members, lead to the loss of millions of dollars in income and undermine a cornerstone of US progressive politics. “Well run opt-out campaigns can cause public-sector unions to experience 5 to 20% declines in membership, costing hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars in dues money.
