S8E33 WiFi on the Rigs

It’s the two John’s and Krys on this week as they discuss what’s been going on in Scottish football.

There’s just a wee bit to talk about with events off the pitch unfortunately dominating the discussion.

We start off with the Scottish Cup replay between the Highland teams and what’s been going on in the lower leagues.

The main topic of discussion is the events involving Steve Clarke. This leads on to a pretty lengthy chat about sectarianism in Scottish football.

We eventually get back to talking about events on the park in an eventful week in the Premiership. Hibs continued their good form under their new manager and St Mirren got another good result away from home. Shinnie at Aberdeen answered some of his critics regarding his contract situation and Livingston got their first win of 2019. On Sunday, there were convincing wins for the Glasgow teams and another bit of controversy with Motherwell’s goal.

The podcast concludes with some random chat which is standard.

It was such a long podcast I’ve probably forgotten about half of what we spoke about.

Remember though if you’re listening on the rigs then get in touch. We’d like to hear from any of you on our media platforms we use.

S8E32 Hug and Kiss It Out

It’s the two John’s on this week for another therapy session. They do as much as they can to divert the attention from the Aberdeen game at the weekend.

The podcast launches with discussion on a number of club statements this week relating to refereeing and events off the pitch.

There was yet again an incident in terms of coin throwing with Kris Boyd being the victim this time. The match itself had a last minute winner which led to other issues. It was a disappointing weekend for most of the teams in the top six as they dropped points. Motherwell continue their fine form which leads to some discussion about them and what has helped transform their season.

We discuss the various polls this week we’ve had on social media with some interesting results. We’d love it if we had some more interaction on all the media platforms we’re on so feel free to contact us with any comments or thoughts.

The chat finishes off with how things are looking in the lower leagues and what may happen next season in terms of the Pyramid getting bigger.

John also discusses his posh experience at the football and takes a look back briefly at the Scottish Cup game between Hearts and Auchinleck Talbot.

S8E31 Ain’t That A Kick In The Head

This week, Krys hosts and is joined by John and Aldo. Or Alan, we can’t quite decide what to call him. Well, John can…

Having done the midweek podcast to cover off the league fixtures, we have a quick skim over the lower league action before diving into the eight Scottish Cup ties.

On Saturday there were some powerful prangs in Paisley, some kung-fu kicks in Kilmarnock, a mental maelstrom in Methil, and some easy ‘eaders in Edinburgh. Nearly managed some nice alliteration there!

Sunday gave us a couple of thirty yard screamers as well as a Glasgow chip in Edinburgh. You can do your own salt and vinegar or salt and sauce jokes now.

Monday night’s Highland derby didn’t disappoint either, and then just before recording the podcast we had the Quarter Final draw where just about everyone will be disappointed for one reason or another.

We also look ahead to Celtic in European action against Valencia, as well as the big action ahead next weekend.

Thanks as always for listening!

S8E30 Cathartic Seamill Experience

It’s the two John’s on our second podcast of the week which is a bonus depending on who you support. You may need to listen to it in two halves as it’s a long one.

We lead with the Aberdeen v Rangers game which lasts a while due to the amount of incidents. The game was probably up there with game of the season though hard one to take as an Aberdeen fan. Morelos saw red for third time in this fixture this season.

Celtic continue to stroll though 2019 as they continue their clean sheet run. Motherwell are showing you can win with youth as they see benefit of Hastie’s introduction to the team along with Turnbull and Campbell. Livi got back to basics which they needed to arrest the slump.

At the bottom end, Hamilton look transformed and have an attacking threat, as do Dundee. St Mirren look favourites to go down now.

As per usual the chat turns to referees and the job they do and decision making. We also talk about pundits who are involved with teams and their lack of impartiality in the media.

The podcast takes a serious note as we talk briefly about mental health in football and urge anyone facing issues to talk.

We finish up with some rugby chat and briefly talk about potential shocks in the Scottish Cup.

S8E29 Penalty Rangers

It’s the regular trip on as the two John’s and Krys are on together for the first time this year.

We recording the podcast an hour or so after Steve Conroy came out and said there is a need for more transparency. This leads on to our weekly chat about bad refereeing decisions. Steve Clarke came out with need for consistency.

It’s a penalty to Rangers was a popular phrase on Saturday as they were awarded four penalties. The guys discuss how many of them Dallas called right and the one he missed.

It was a good week for Hearts and Motherwell as they both continued their fine form. The two John’s discuss Aberdeen’s week as one was at the cup game and other was at the league game against Hibs. St Johnstone must be sick of the sight of Celtic so it’s lucky they don’t play them again till…. Sunday.

The rest of the league fixtures in the Premiership are covered along with some of the January transfers.

The farce of the cup and having non Scottish teams involved in the Challenge Cup has led to Bohemians withdrawing. This leads to some interesting discussion.

The lower leagues are discussed briefly before chat turns to the Scottish Cup and potential shocks. Can Auchinleck cause another shock or will there be one elsewhere?
