“An astonishing verdict…”

Those were the words used by a BBC reporter who relayed the news to Radio 5 Live’s primetime 'Drive' programme after a jury returned the ‘not proven’ verdicts on two of the three charges against John Wilson, a Hearts fan, who millions around the world...

Answering the lies of 'G40' on The Celtic Network.


I suppose the first thing I should do is to thank G40 of The Celtic Network (TCN) for writing such an ill-informed and inaccurate piece that masquerades as a ‘review’ of TAL’s latest Ezine edition.

The blog (see link) is little more than...

The fight for Independence heats up


The elections to the Scottish Parliament on 5th May 2011 proved to be truly historic and were of great joy to many at this fanzine who have long defended the Scottish people's right to run their own affairs and to quote John Maclean "bring the British empire crashing to its knees". We're not there yet but who can deny the significance of these results?


All three Unionist lead...

The recent 'viable' nail bomb devices discovered in transit to the Celtic manager Neil Lennon and 'high profile Celtic supporters' marks a new departure in the conflict that is lovingly referred to in Scottish sports media circles as the 'Old Firm Divide'. However, this represents only a new departure in terms of tactics rather than overall strategy, because Celtic fans have for years been the victims of a low level t...

TAL Forum knocked out by 'suspect device'

It may have come to the notice of our members and supporters that the TAL Forum, as it was, has mysteriously and overnight disappeared (last Thursday in the early hours of the morning). The first reaction, as always, is one of extreme paranoia... have we been hit by a new virus; have some enterprising (but malicious) Scotland's Shame fans managed to hack into our forums to destroy  the da...

By Bre Abu - Tal Fanzine

When my grandmother passed away in the early 1990s I was going through some old photographs and found a card with the photo of a young soldier with a black ribbon attached. It was addressed to my Great-great grandfather and family from the War Department announcing the death of their son at...

The title 'legend' is often conferred too lightly in the world of football, but in the case of Tommy Burns, you could not apply a more apt term to describe the man.

The man would literally have walked those million miles that we used to sing about for a Celtic goal.

I am not often moved to tears but I have found it extremely to difficult to watch any of...

It could be argued that Saturdays clash at The Reichstag is a game Celtic don't necessarily have to win if they are to complete three in a row for the first time in more than thirty years, but it is undoubtedly one that they can't afford to lose.

The Editorial Group of TAL Fanzine (Tiocfaidh ?r L? ? For Celtic & Ireland) have been discussing for some time an ambitious project - Let The People Sing - which we intend to launch at the beginning of next season.

The initial launch of the LTPS campaign will involve a Limited Edition CD to be distributed free with every copy of TAL purchased at the first home game of next season. The CD will be a rebel folk music collection with all the best rebel bands involved. It will...
