S7E37 Doncaster’s Fixture Farce

The two John’s are on to discuss the current events in Scottish football.

There is good news to start with as the charity bet treble with McBookie came in. That takes us closer to the £700 mark.
The champions in League One and League Two have yet to be decided with only one set of fixtures left to be played.
The Junior Cup final has been decided with Auchinleck Talbot and Hurlford securing their places. The game takes place on 27th May at Rugby Park. Auchinleck Talbot will look to secure their 12th win in the competition while Hurlford look to win for the second time.
In the Premiership, we have reached the point where Celtic can secure the league against Rangers. After the farce that led to fixtures being announced, the authorities look very foolish. McInnes continues to have the upper hand against Clarke’s Kilmarnock as they continued their fantastic record against the men from Ayrshire. It’s all to play for in terms of the European places with Hibs and Rangers both winning.
At the other end of the table, Partick Thistle picked up a vital win as they look to escape the drop. Dundee won too in what was a bit of a grudge match after the recent McCann and Clark/Wright incident.
There is a brief bit of chat about Thursday’s Youth Cup final between Aberdeen and Hibs. The match kicks off at Hampden at 1930.
Predictions are made and charity bets chosen. Thanks as always to McBookie for their support.

S7E36 Main Man

It’s back to being the two John’s on the podcast as they discuss what’s been going on in Scottish football.

Both the McBookie charity bets were unsuccessful as the team look to get closer to the £700 mark.
There are congratulations in order as St Mirren confirmed their promotion back to the top flight as Champions after their result at the weekend. The winners in the three other leagues have yet to be decided.
The semi finals of the Scottish Cup resulted in Motherwell and Celtic going through which means there will be a repeat of their meeting in the League Cup final. Both guys agree that Motherwell are well equipped to cause Celtic problems and win their first Scottish Cup since 1991.
The fixtures have finally been decided for the Premiership split and after all the fuss about not having Celtic playing for the title against Rangers, it has been scheduled as their second game. Celtic can clinch the title before that if results go their way at the weekend.
Predictions are made and charity bets chosen. Thanks as always to Mcbookie for their support.

S7E35 John’s Dream

We have a trio this week as the two John’s are joined by Craig who makes a welcome return.

There are a couple of tributes to start with as John Lambie and Ray Wilkins passed away this week.
After the success of our treble last week, we had a stinker this week with none of our picks being successful.
The Premiership review focuses primarily on Rangers with Craig being on as he has a season ticket. Celtic edged closer to the title if the games after the split are ever decided. That leads on to discussion with how embarrassing it is that our governing bodies can’t decide on the fixtures. Partick Thistle continued their poor form and now look to be favourites for the drop.
The Scottish Cup semis are previewed with all the guys worried about their respective teams. All are in agreement that Celtic will get to the final but the other tie they’re not so sure about. Who. Will be effected more by the players that are missing?
There is only one Premiership game at the weekend with one of the teams being included in the charity bet. Thanks as always to McBookie for their support.

S7E34 Dicker’s flicker

It’s the two John’s once again to discuss the recent events in Scottish football.

There is good news as our charity bet treble won to take us over the £600 mark for the season.
The Premiership returned with Kilmarnock continuing their fine home form in the week that four players signed new contracts. The race for second place continues to be exciting with Rangers dropping points and the other contenders winning. Celtic won to edge closer to a seventh title in a row.
West Brom lost another manager so the guys discuss whether it is a job that Derek McInnes could be interested in.
Predictions are made and charity bets chosen. Thanks as always to McBookie for your support.
