S5E17 Aww Naw Another Draw

Krys returns from his holidays, and with Scottish football back up and running properly again the podcast returns after the quiet international break. John joins Krys to look back at a weekend of draws as Celtic, Hearts, Rangers and Aberdeen all fail to pick up three points.

We look at the terrific run Hibernian are on and wonder if they’ll be able to keep it up or whether Rangers could strengthen in January to push on and clinch the Championship title. We look further down the leagues and compare the tightness of League Two with the commanding lead the top two in League One have.

In the Premiership, the live game at New Douglas Park is the obvious focus, although St Johnstone slowly gaining on the leaders has us wondering if they could be challengers for second. At the other end, it may not look too great for Dundee United on the face of it, but we highlight some possibilities for hope – mainly coming from Motherwell’s return to rubbishness.

Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stakes in our charity bet. We managed to get back to losing ways this week just in time for Krys’s return, but the guys are hopeful of a better weekend to come.

S5E16 Stand Free

This week, John hosts the podcast for the first time with help from a musical friend. Andy joins him though surprisingly there isn’t too much Aberdeen chat.

There is good news in terms of the charity bets from last week. Craig and Greig manage to win both bets for the podcast team. John wonders whether they may have fled with their winnings.

The lower league is reviewed with discussion on whether Hibs can overtake Rangers. St Mirren’s continued slide is discussed too.

The title race in League One is discussed as Ayr and Dunfermline compete for top spot.

As per every week, it is mentioned that League Two continues to be very competitive from top to bottom.

The semi final draw for the League Cup is discussed. Andy wonders what the location will be for Hibs v St Johnstone.

There are no predictions to be made as there is no Premier League card. John and Andy opt for John Baird of Falkirk for the Mcbookie FGS bet. They opt for a double after success of last week. The top two in League One are chosen.

S5E15 – Old School

Krys is on holiday, John pretends that he is busy studying / skiving and Andy is having technical problems, so things are desperate this week. So desperate in fact that the podcast has gone old school, with Craig and Greig sitting in to talk about the last week in Scottish football. A whole hour of football chat from the duo – what could be better than that.

Sportscene gets it with both barrels, which is a bit of a trend over the seasons on the podcast. To highlight how woeful it was this past week, Craig sets up the worst quiz that has ever been recorded. The question is badly worded, with the answer being way too obvious, and the prize on offer hardly worth winning.

After listening to Craig’s tactical review of Rangers’ formation against Hibs, you might be mistaken for thinking that you are listening to someone that has a UEFA Pro Licence. Does 5-3-2 equal ten outfield players?

All six Premiership games are discussed in more detail than Sportscene, with midweek League Cup games also covered, although we all know that nobody cares about the League Cup (least of all a Motherwell and Rangers fan).

With the regular team away doing other things, Craig and Greig think it’s the perfect time to get a charity bet win, just to show how easy it can be. The charity double was chosen via some sensible analysis of form, whereas an alternative strategy was chosen for the first scorer bet.

Hibs vs Dundee United, Celtic vs Molde and the weekend’s games are all previewed, complete with score predictions for the Premiership games.

Remember, remember, the 4th of November.
