S4E34 Sent him homework to think again

We have a special guest this week as Andy joins me, Krys and John. He writes for the Press & Journal and brings with him a wealth of knowledge of Scottish football, as well as bringing his educated view on the Highland & Lowland League play offs.

We discuss Scotland’s double header against Northern Ireland and Gibraltar and how the qualifying campaign looks now.

Laurie fluked the charity bet last week with his punt on Osman Sow. We try to repeat that by opting to go for a new face – Bryan Prunty.

S4E33 Hearts, Hearts, Glorious Hearts

Laurie returns to the podcast to join me and Krys.

Greig is missing, which is unusual timing considering his side got their arguably their biggest win of the season. I suppose it’s only Hamilton.

John has homework due for tomorrow.

Hearts sealed the Championship title at the weekend, so it’s perfect timing to get Laurie on to discuss his team.

Away from the fame of featuring on the SFF podcast, Laurie has been quietly working away at Hearts. Talk turns to his on air work, and specifically pronunciation of footballer’s names.

A pie upgrade and karma are what I have to report from recent games at Ibrox.

Celtic vs Dundee United (again), Hibs vs Rangers, Dundee vs Aberdeen are discussed, along with the other Premiership games of the weekend.

Scotland have a double header coming up. We cover the ties in depth (ie we say they are happening).

The charity bet is a four fold this week, with Osman Sow our first scorer pick.

S4E32 Celtic Diddy Cup Winners

Krys gets another shot of hosting so he can bask in the glory of his team’s triumph in capturing the first domestic honours of the season. But being the humble kind, he immediately hands over to this week’s guests John and Greig so they can talk about their teams’ Friday night battle in the Premiership.

Talk then progresses to the other Premiership games and arguably the worst charity bet attempt yet, before taking a look at the Championship to see if Hearts have won it yet and how the run for the playoffs is shaping up for the other teams miles behind them. Finally they get back to talk about the events at Hampden before focusing on the next important game at Hampden – Scotland’s attempted thumping of Gibraltar (with a side order of a Northern Irish friendly) – as Gordon Strachan’s latest squad choices are up for scrutiny.

Finally, there’s the usual predictions before Greig begs us not to put the charity bet on Motherwell. Did we? Listen and find out!

Or just look at Twitter, it’s already there. But be sure to listen to this podcast as well!

S4E31 Mistaken identity

It’s me, Greig and Krys again this week, because John is in jail.

Rangers EGM and our brief opinion on King. Sticking with Rangers, we touch on whether an old or new manager is likely anytime soon.

Camshy suggested on the forum ( that we discuss top scorers.

Celtic vs St Johnstone, Motherwell vs Killie and Ross county vs Partick Thistle are the Premiership games that we discuss. With Krys and Greig both going to the first two.

The Premiership was quiet due to the Scottish Cup quarter finals. The live game on cooncil telly wasn’t really up to much, apart from the headed goal from Sibbald.

Hibs vs Berwick Rangers wasn’t the contest it may have been and I even give Cummings some praise.

Dundee United vs Celtic was the big talking point of the weekend, largely due to red cards and the lack of red cards. Derek Riordan’s headed equaliser is applauded, and rightly so.

The charity bet is McMenamin of Stenhousemuir for first scorer, and Ross County and St Johnstone for the McBookie charity double. The latter returns just under £100 for a tenner.
