S5E10 Commentator Manbags

Back to Monday night, and back to the old regulars as Krys is joined by Hearts TV’s Laurie and Scottish Football Forums owner and Director of Podcasting Craig. Oh how far we’ve come.

Well, maybe not Krys.

Although it was covered to a certain extent in last week’s podcast, the guys go over the full League Cup fixture card from midweek as well as going over the fixtures from the weekend. There’s a lot of jumping back and forth between the two sets of fixtures as they look at the mixed fortunes of Rangers, a good week for Hearts, a frustrating week for Celtic, a bubble bursting week for Aberdeen, and a dismal week for Ian Baraclough and Jackie McNamara.

There was mixed fortunes too for the charity bet, which leads to over-excitement when picking the teams for next week. Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stakes.

Listen all the way to the end if you want to know what this week’s title is all about. It’s a bit longer than usual, but I hope you agree it was well worth the extra time. Unlike the action at Motherwell. Pesky pointless last minute equalisers.

S5E09 The Aberdeen and Celtic Show

Following Skype’s worldwide issues on Monday, this week’s podcast was recorded on Tuesday night after Rangers defeat in the League Cup to St Johnstone. So rather than talk about them and chance being accused of laughing too much, Krys and John decided just to revert to type and focus on the fortunes of Aberdeen and Celtic.

Or maybe it was just Aberdeen and Celtic had midweek games as well as big weekend wins.

Also discussed this week were Partick Thistle’s lack of dead pigs, the Ross County home for Celtic youth players, Dundee United’s lack of luck, Morton’s giant killing pedigree, rowdy youngsters at the football, how do you pronounce Tavernier, and of course another disappointing charity bet result. Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stakes.

We also reveal the possibility of a return for a certain Director of Podcasting next week so that someone who knows about Rangers can school us in the ways of magic hats.

S5E08 The Sound of Silence

It’s another week of technical difficulties unfortunately, and we’re not just talking about the Celtic defence. Krys is joined by John and Andy once again to look back at all the weekend’s action, but obviously given their affiliations they focus mainly on one game in particular.

What was Craig Thomson thinking on a number of occasions? Can Aberdeen now go on an mount a title challenge? Is it too early to tell? Is it too early for a knee jerk reaction? We cover all of this and more as we also look back on the Friday night game, a later charity bet scupper, and when Connie met Keith.

The technical difficulties aren’t the only silences though as some of Krys’s comments are met with a similar response.

Could next week be the week we get a charity bet win and a gremlin-free podcast? We can only hope. Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stakes.

S5E07 Strachan Sie Deutsch

Krys is joined once again by John and Andy to dissect Scotland’s double header against Georgia and Germany. There’s plenty to talk about across the two games, from where it went wrong to how good the Germans are, through to what chance – if any – Scotland still have of qualifying for Euro 2016.

Before that though there’s a look at the domestic action from the weekend in the lower leagues, as well as the first round draw for the Scottish Cup. After the Scotland discussion comes the usual Premiership predictions and charity bet choices with the stakes, as always, being provided with thanks from McBookie.

Just like Scotland’s campaign, this podcast all goes wrong in the end as John disappears, so yet again we apologise for the technical difficulties. Stick with it until the end though and you’ll find a comedy reward… unless you’re one of Krys’s German teachers from his school days that is!
