S5E22 Halliday Season

No you haven’t miscounted. S5E21 was lost forever due to technical difficulties, but Krys and John are back once again to look back on all the festive action.

There was top of the table action in the Championship, and among other things they discuss the red card incident between Halliday and Fyvie. That wasn’t the only refereeing discussion though. Although last week’s podcast was lost, it was good of Willie Collum to put in a repeat performance so he could be slated for exactly the same thing he was slated for last week.

Two points dropped or a point gained? The guys discuss that perspective as the top two in the Premiership pick up the same result in completely different manners. There’s ups and downs across the divisions, from Ross County and Partick Thistle in the top six, to title challengers Hibernian now in third, to Stenhousemuir pushing on for a playoff spot, to the ever exciting League Two where everyone could still win it or end up in the playoff with the Highland and Lowland Leagues.

Who says the SPFL is rubbish?! If only the weather didn’t suck so much we could have even more to talk about, but sadly postponements affected the card once again this weekend.

Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stakes in our charity bet. No win yet again this week sadly, but as ever we’re hopeful that this coming weekend will be different.

S5E20 Santa’s Sack Race

It’s nearly Christmas! So of course, that’s a good time to lose your job. Three SPFL managers have gone since we last recorded, and the fall out from those changes is discussed as Krys is joined by John for a Tuesday night podcast for a change.

The top of the table clashes are discussed in the Championship, League One and then the Premiership, with a little bit of League Two thrown in for good measure as the wrong person scores for Clyde. All of that is interspersed with a look back at Celtic’s final Europa League match of the season. As if that wasn’t depressing enough, the Euro 2016 draw gets discussed as well as once more we lament the lack of Scotland at a major tournament and try to look forward to some exciting games next summer.

Finally it’s predictions for an all 3pm Saturday Premiership card.

Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stakes in our charity bet. No win this week sadly.

S5E19 Desmond Too-Late

This week’s podcast was recorded minutes before the SPFL announced details of the changes to the League Cup format for next season, closely followed by Danny Lennon resigning as Alloa Athletic manager. So almost immediately this podcast was completely out of date as Krys had been joined by John to discuss changes to Scottish Football in the wake of Storm Desmond – including the possibility of summer football and the changes to the League Cup!

Away from that topic, the rather curtailed fixture list was discussed including Aberdeen’s win over Dundee, Dundee United still not able to buy a win, a five goal thriller in Dingwall, and East Kilbride’s Scottish Cup run.

How did we manage to get a regular length podcast out of that? You’ll have to listen to find out.

Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stakes in our charity bet. No win this week, but then most of it was wiped out by the weather.

S5E18 All Teams To Score

This week, Krys is joined by Scottish Football Forums owner and Director of Podcasting Craig, as well as John the walking stats book. John delights us with his latest passion – both teams to score statistics – after realising that all six games in the Premiership saw both teams scoring.

Somewhere in between, the guys manage to chat about Celtic’s European exit, the Scottish Cup third round action, Rangers joining Peterhead in the Petrofac Training Cup final scheduled sometime in the late Spring, and of course all the fall out from the latest inability for pundits to know what constitutes a hand ball decision.

Throw in some league reconstruction chat and the usual Premiership predictions and it’s no surprise that this podcast runs a bit longer than usual. We hope it’s worthwhile though, and it was certainly enjoyable to record.

Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stakes in our charity bet. No win this week sadly, but with Craig on a 100% record we can’t fail this week. We hope.
