S2E44 Season Finale, Scottish Cup and Charity

In the final podcast of the season, Krys, Greig and I start off by discussing the Scottish Cup final.

We discuss our personal highlights from the season as a whole and our expectations for next season.

Every week we do a charity bet, where McBookie generously supply us with the bet, and we announce that Clic Sargent will receive the winnings from the season. They will receive £333, which will hopefully go a little way to helping them continue to do a good job at helping out those in need.

Thank you to McBookie for providing us with the charity bet, thank you to our guests, thank you to our regular co-hosts – Laurie, Greig and Krys – and thank you for listening.

The podcast will return next season.

Enjoy your summer.

S2E43 SPL climax, Alloa, Dunfermline & the Scottish Cup

Greig returns this week to join Krys and I.

Krys introduces his final SPL review, before we discuss the key points of the weekend. Greig gives us his review of the food from McDiarmid Park.

I went to the first leg of Alloa vs Dunfermline play-off final, and I experienced a novel way of trying to gain cheap entry. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to report back about the quality of Recreation Park’s pies. The game leads us on to discuss off the field matters, with Alloa’s chairman and Dunfermline’s financial situation being the main focus.

The Charity bet is nearing it’s season conclusion, and we have managed to amass over £300. Thanks to McBookie for their help throughout the season. We shall announce which charity will benefit from the winnings during next weeks end of season podcast.

The end of the SPL also means that the predictor has also ended. Brian Murray and kjphoops shared the top prize or £25 each.

The Scottish Cup closes the season on Sunday. We all hope for a sunny day, but are supporting different teams. We chose Celtic to win for the charity bet, so perhaps we should all be supporting Celtic.

Thank you to McBookie for donating the charity bet stake.

S2E42 Ye olde football and shocking misses

It’s Krys and I this week and we talk about football. Mostly it’s about the SPL at the weekend, the SFL play offs, or recent awards, but we also stray into English football, and also football from the 1800s.

Thank you to McBookie for donating the charity bet stake.

S2E41 – Awards, dives and SFL play-offs

I am joined by Krys and Greig this week and there is loads to talk about. Dundee were relegated at the weekend, with Bomber Brown blaming Pawlett. McKay scored a hattrick to put pressure on Higdon, who also scored, for top scorer in the SPL.

In the SFL we preview the upcoming play-offs and discuss what is wrong with the current setup and how it could be improved. With QOS and Falkirk both moving to an astroturf surface, we discuss the pros and cons of the move. Rangers were presented with the third division trophy on Saturday and I give the highlights of the occasion.

The PFA awards took place on Sunday evening, so we discuss who won what. We also give mention to Higdon’s post awards celebrations.

With the SFL finished, bar the play-offs, we decide to go for an all SPL charity bet. Chances are we will lose, but it’s worth a try.

Following our SPL predictions, we did stray into reconstruction talk, following the announcement that ten first division clubs look like they want to join the SPL. We were tight for time, but still manage a quick discussion.

Thank you to McBookie for donating the charity bet stake.
