S6E4 Brazilian Breeding

John is joined by Hamish to discuss the events of the last week in Scottish football.

There is an early positive with the McBookie charity bets as we get our first win of the season.

The podcast is recorded as Celtic play their crucial European qualifier. The guys discuss whether it is good or bad for Scottish football if they progress.

Some of the Premiership games are discussed with Hamish being particularly impressed with Hearts performance against Inverness. Aberdeen get off the mark with a win with John pleased that they scored their first league goals of the season.

The attention then shifts towards the announcement of the Scotland squad with neither Hamish or John too excited by it. Hopefully though there is plenty of excitement when campaign starts however you’d take boring if it means Scotland qualify.

The podcast ends with Hamish giving his picks for the charity bets.

Thanks to those who have provided feedback @sffpodcast on twitter so far this season.

Thank you to McBookie for donating the charity bet stake.

The podcast is available via RSS or iTunes.

S6E3 Referee Indecision

John and Hamish are on this week to discuss the previous week of action in Scotland.

Once again, the charity bet treble sees two out of three win so just short. They decide to stick to trebles from now on but maybe we’d be better picking a double.

A brief summary of League Cup action is discussed as John was at Ayr v Aberdeen. They go on to discuss who they  think will win cup.

Once again the Premiership is given priority in terms of reviewing the weekend action. As often is the case, referees come under criticism for their decisions or more so, lack of decision. The so called game of the weekend is discussed in Aberdeen v Hearts and how both John and Hamish are not too disheartened by their respective teams start to the season.

Hamish takes centre stake in the choice of charity bets as he has some very exciting news.

If you have any feedback regarding podcast then please tweet @sffpodcast or comment on the Facebook page, Scottish Football Forums.

Tune in next week for more football chat and banter.

As always, a big thanks to McBookie for supplying the charity bet. They’re good guys.

S6E2 The Scott Brown Show

John hosts the podcast and has Director of Podcasting and owner of Scottish Football Forums, Craig as a guest to talk about how Rangers are ‘back’. Hamish makes it a trio on the podcast.

As always, we discuss the fortunes of the charity bet from the weekend. Both of them failed with our FGS, Simon Murray failing to score first. Our other bet saw Livingston and Clyde win however East Fife let us down. Two out of three isn’t bad but it doesn’t win you any money.

There is a brief discussion with regards to Celtic and Aberdeen playing in Europe. John is frustrated that Aberdeen failed to get past the third qualifying round of the Europa League for third season in succession. There is little knowledge of the team that Celtic have drawn in Champions League playoff round but Hamish does mention something about ‘dodgy’ Eastern European owners.

The team are pleased that the Premiership has returned. As always with Craig, the podcast becomes the pie podcast as he loves a pie. John gives a bit of gastro chat too.

After feedback, we are trying to make podcast shorter so just cover three of the games in detail from the Premiership. If you have any feedback please tweet us @sffpodcast

The team decide on Joe Cardle of Dunfermline as FGS bet. Our other £10 bet courtesy of McBookie is Dundee United (8/11), Dundee/Rangers BTTS (8/11) and Hibs/Dunfermline BTTS (5/6. The bet returns £54.70 including £10 stake.

If you are a Scottish resident, and you like a flutter, we highly recommend McBookie. Their existing customer offers are up there with the best in the business. Bet £5 and get £5 back if it loses, is a regular offer throughout the football season. That, and they also give us the charity bets each week, so they’re good guys.

Tune in to find out why we gave the podcast the title that we did.
