S4E21 Greigs a total diva

In the last SFF podcast of the year, John, Krys and I discuss the last week in Scottish football (as well as some other random stuff).

As usual, we have the McBookie charity bet, Premiership review and predictions.

Thank you to McBookie for donating the charity bet stake.

S4E20 Christmas Podcast

With Christmas around the corner, we decide to have a Christmas themed podcast, featuring all four of the podcast regulars – me (Craig), Greig, John and Krys. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean that we recite the full Nativity, it simply means that we all have a drink. Well, technically I didn’t drink any alcohol, but I did discuss my love of Tennent’s (hint, hint for a freebie case of Tennent’s if anyone at the Wellpark Brewery is reading/listening to this).

We start off with what is a bit of a regular occurrence – a negative review of how the McBookie charity bet went. Motherwell held up their end of the bargain, but Partick Thistle let us down. To be specific, it was the own goal by Balatoni that let us, and charity, down. We didn’t do too well in the charity bet either, despite Krys almost picking the correct Arbroath player. I might have to take the blame there.

This week’s charity bet wasn’t the easiest bet to put on. I think we covered almost every game in Scotland as we tried to come up with a treble. Greig was especially keen to shout out every club he could think off. In the end, we went for a treble of Dundee(20/23), Stranraer(4/7), and Arbroath(11/10). £10 on the returns £61.70 at today’s prices at McBookie. For first scorer, we went for Longworth of Stranraer. That was despite Krys’ suggestion that we go for Murray of Arbroath. Time will tell whether that was a sensible move. McBookie don’t have odds available on him yet.

St Mirren vs Motherwell gains much of our attention due to the contentious red card and offside. The penalty claim wasn’t in debate – it simply wasn’t a penalty. Greig in particular gives us his unbiased opinion on the red card.

Aberdeen winning again, Partick Thistle losing the charity bet, St Johnstone putting the boot into Inverness and Hamilton winning in the other games on Saturday.

Dundee United beat Celtic on the Sunday and that inevitably leads to us discussing whether any team can genuinely challenge Celtic for the title. More than that, we discuss whether any other team should be more positive when discussing their chances. John is positive when it comes to his teams chances,  as is Greig when it comes to his sides chances. My team – Rangers – have no chance of winning the Premiership this season 😉

It was another eventful week at Rangers, with McCoist officially going on gardening leave. Luckily we didn’t litter the podcast with too many puns on that. He was replaced by Kenny McDowall, who will take over until the end of the season. His first game is against Hibs, at Easter Road on Saturday 27th. TitanBet have Rangers at 21/20 for him to open his account with a win. We also discuss the AGM and the prospect of Mike Ashley increasing his stake.

Last week’s Premiership predictions were woeful, but hopefully with four of us making our selections, we can at least get a few scorelines exactly correct. John is quite adamant that I mix up the order that the predictions are given, so that we ensure that there is no copying.

The podcast was going so well until John disappeared with five minutes to go. He assures me that he wasn’t in the huff and it was a technical issue.

S4E19 What now for Rangers

Greig and John are MIA, so it’s Krys and me this week.

We review Celtic’s final Europa League game, Queen of the South vs Rangers and all the games in the Premiership.

Away from match reviews, we focus on McCoist’s resignation, as well as Mike Ashley’s involvement with Rangers.

We are looking for football player names that are either places, football club names, or similar. Send in any entries to SFFPodcast on Twitter.

We give our score predictions for the upcoming Premiership games.

We end with the McBookie charity bet.

S4E18 Craig’s In A Huff At Missing Free Pies

Alloa knocked Rangers out of the Potty Training Cup, and with fans of the finalists getting free pies it’s all too much for Craig to take.

Meanwhile, Greig is camping it up leaving Krys and John to do the podcast alone. The charity bet was another bust, so we go for an even bigger one this week to make up for it. There’s financial goings on at Motherwell and Livingston, early transfer speculation and even some actual football discussed.

S4E17 Moan, moan, moan

It’s a positive podcast this week as Krys and Greig moan about anything and everything. They even moan about my lack of agenda.

Celtic in Europe (thanks to Krys for reminding me that it happened), Scottish Cup fitba (including Motherwell being put out of yet another cup) and cheese.
