S5E40 Say Hello, Wave Goodbye

It’s the final podcast of the season and despite there only being three games this week there’s been no end of discussion points! Krys is joined for the final time by John and Craig to pour over them.

The Premiership playoff was brought to a conclusion as Kilmarnock retained their top flight status thanks mainly to one good performance. For Falkirk, its another season consigned to what will prove to be a very tight and exciting Championship.

Then of course there was the Scottish Cup final which saw many things from the ending of an exceptionally long wait to the beginning of a long enquiry. Both the game and the aftermath merited a long discussion of course.

There’s also discussions of where Rangers need to strengthen for next season as well as a look at where Celtic might go with their new manager now in place.

We wrap up the season by announcing where the charity bet winnings will be going. Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stake in our charity bets throughout the course of this season, and the seasons that have gone before.

It’s long, it’s emotional, and like Game of Thrones we’re killing off a main character at the end! Listen to the end to find out who it is. Or just read it on the sffpodcast Twitter account. Feel free to interact with us there and even to give us some feedback on the podcast.

S5E39 #PrayForSFFPodcast

It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve managed to get a podcast out thanks to scheduling conflicts and Skype issues, but Krys and John finally managed to get together with working equipment to discuss the final weekend of the Premiership season as well as the lower league playoffs.

Celtic pick up their trophy in style with a goalscorer who makes even young men feel old, while Aberdeen gave up the ghost a while back. Kilmarnock didn’t have an ideal preparation for their upcoming playoff fixtures, although maybe key players did by having time off. St Johnstone almost manage a full sweep of post-split points, while we discuss whether Dundee have been a disappointment or not.

In the playoffs, it’s congratulations to Queens Park and Ayr United who move up a division, while its a welcome to Edinburgh City who join the SPFL for the first time. That leads onto a discussion on the makeup of the Lowland League and a look at how East Stirling might adjust to their new position.

Finally there’s a look ahead to the season finale of the Scottish Cup final and we ask the question – can Hibs hoodoo finally end or will Gordon Strachan be called to give Rangers players time off for Europe?

Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stake in our charity bets. No winner these last few weeks, thanks mainly to Lee Miller scoring in the wrong leg of the playoff. There’s no bet this week, so listen next week to see what the final total is and find out where the charity money is going this season.
