S8E10 League Cup Royal Rumble

It’s the two John’s and Krys on. We had the missing podcast last week which Krys managed to summarise on the Twitter account.

It’s a strange occurrence as we record the podcast on a Thursday. It couldn’t have been timed better, due to the decision being made that both League Cup semi finals will be played on the same day. The guys discuss the reaction to this and the potential issues this may bring. There is a fair bit of humour thrown in too about just deciding the tournament in one day.

There is a Premier League review but the main focus is on the League Cup quarter final action. There are similar issues occuring at both Aberdeen and Celtic as they struggle in front of goal but they both advanced to the semis. Rangers had a fairly routine win while Hearts left it late to get the job done.

There is a brief discussion on what is going on in the lower leagues and also Auchinleck Talbot’s journey in the Scottish Cup.

S8E8 Timeshares in Trondheim

We’re on the match with Shelley’s army! France 2019 here we come!

The two Johns and Krys are in jubilant mood this week at being able to utter words that haven’t been mentioned in over twenty years. Thanks especially go to those wonderful Polish women who held Switzerland to a draw, a point Krys makes repeatedly because he thinks its funny.

Its another bumper week as there’s a full league fixture card across all the divisions, as well as the successful end to European qualification for two of our teams. The Europa League group stages away, although in Celtic’s case there’s some familar faces in there.

The quality of refereeing comes into questions as per usual, with the ghost of Les Mottram being invoked while the old boys network on the review panel ensures Willie Collum is bizarrely vidicated for a second straight week. Meanwhile, Craig Thomson has his favourite red card out yet again, but apparently some tackles at Tynecastle are only worth a yellow.

There’s talk of the managerial merry-go-round which is picking up pace despite us only just getting into September, and a look ahead to the two Scotland games with new captain Andy Robertson leading the team.

And of course, we have charity chat. There’s Celtic v Liverpool on Saturday, there’s Kris Doolan’s generosity, and there’s John’s charity match at Falkirk Stadium on Sunday. All the details are with John, just check out @jbleasdale81 on twitter.

Get along if you can on Sunday, and if you can’t then you can still donate through Just Giving.
