S5E34 Miller Time

John hosts the podcast this week with Krys and Craig as guests. Craig makes a welcome return and enjoys not having to host.

The charity bets from last week are discussed with it being mentioned that Krys should maybe take another holiday as we do well when he is away.

In League One, Dunfermline clinched the title at the weekend. There is a bit of beach football chat at this point.

Craig teases us with talk of pie chat then reveals he never actually had a pie at Rangers game from the weekend. He discusses at length his thoughts on Rangers and declares his admiration for Kenny Miller.

League Two continues to be a case of hot potato as no one seems to win it. Five teams are still in with a shout.

The Scotland games are discussed and there is talk of whether much has been learned from the two victories.

There is the usual stuff too with charity bet choices and Premiership result predictions.

Thank you to McBookie for donating the charity bet stake.

S5E33 Rogic Rocket Fires Title Blow

Krys is back in hosting duties, while John continues his run on the podcast as the guys discuss the weekend action. It’s a mixed bag for Hibernian who reached the Scottish Cup semi final but slipped further behind Falkirk in the race for second to Rangers.

In League One, Dunfermline can taste the title, but there’s still plenty to play for behind them and especially at the bottom where Brechin and Forfar are reeling in Stenhousemuir. Meanwhile in League Two it’s still as open as it’s always been.

Of course, the big question is just how pivotal a weekend was it in the Premiership? A late winner for Celtic coupled with defeat for Aberdeen puts Deila’s men one step closer to five in a row, although a look at the fixtures suggests it’s far from a done deal. Dundee United gained a point on Kilmarnock, but will it be a vital point or another missed opportunity to close that gap at the bottom further? And with the split imminent, who will see out the season in which half of that divide?

Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stakes in our charity bet. No luck this weekend as Hearts crumbled and Stokes could actually hit the net while Cummings almost escaped the podcast unscathed!

S5E32 Hibs Highland Nightmare

This week sees Hearts fan, Hamish make his debut on the podcast. Krys is on holiday so John takes over hosting duties.

There’s plenty to talk about after a week that saw two Scotland squads announced. Hamish and John discuss who else might have been included.

They both agree that Rangers and Dunfermline have their leagues pretty much wrapped up. League Two is a different story but Hamish reckons Elgin will get the job done.

The Premiership review discusses the weekend fixtures plus the midweek encounter between Partick Thistle and Aberdeen. There is discussion on the role that Hearts may play in the title race and whether they could even be contenders.

Last week saw both charity bets lose so we’re hoping for better luck with this week’s choices. Thanks to McBookie for providing the stakes.

S5E31 Pitch and Skint

This week sees Greig make a victorious return to the podcast and unsurprisingly much of the focus is on the Premiership race to the bottom as he gives Krys and John the lowdown on life trying to avoid the relegation playoff spot. With Motherwell currently sitting four points off both 4th spot and 11th spot, we discuss the validity and safety of the upcoming split, while the possibility of Dundee United coming back into the mix is also discussed.

Looking at Motherwell in particular gives the guys to discuss the merits of youth versus experience and what kind of effect that can have in the dressing room, which then leads nicely into the dicussions around the various refereeing decisions across the weekend – starting with old head Keith Lasley winning a penalty against young head Aidan Nesbitt. It’s not long though before the various decisions of Craig Thompson are the focus of the podcast, while the late penalty at Pittodrie also comes under scrutiny.

Is the title race still going? Arguably it is in the Premiership, and certainly is in League Two, but in between it’s looking far more decisive. Finally there’s the usual predictions, and a look ahead at the Scottish Cup quarter finals.

Apologies for any sound quality issues this week, it wasn’t the best of recordings from a technical perspective, but hopefully you get the gist of the discussions. And if you want to know what the title is about this week, this was Greig’s tweet on Friday night when talking about why Motherwell – just like Celtic – couldn’t beat Hamilton.

Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stakes in our charity bet. For the third time this season it’s been a bet winning double, which made the return of Greig all the more timely given his only previous appearance ensured one of the other two!
