S9E21 What Did The Fox Dae?

There are four folk on the podcast with the regular trio being joined by returning guest Jon Connolly.

It’s an ideal time to get him on as his team Fauldhouse United were supposed to be playing in the Scottish Junior Cup at the weekend. The game however was called off due to some so called cunning foxes. We did ask Bridge of Don for a statement but they didn’t respond.

We then move on to the Scottish Cup and pick out the best results from the weekend and discuss the fourth round draw.

There was only one lower league tie at the weekend so main focus is on what happened in the Premiership. The top two continued their good form while Hibs got off to winning ways under new manager Jack Ross. It’s right at the bottom with three points separating the bottom seven.

There’s new ownership at Aberdeen which is discussed in terms of what may happen on and off the field.

We finish off by previewing the European games and Glasgow City clinching the double by beating Hibs in the Women’s Scottish Cup. That leads on to Clare Shine winning our #pickitoot moment of the week.

Thanks as always for listening.

S9E20 Roll On March 2020

It’s Krys and Good John this week, F-Bomb John has taken an extended break.

We kick off with a brief review of the conclusion to Scotland’s Euro 2020 Qualifying campaign. A decent 2-1 in Cyprus saw the Scots come away with a 2-1 win, whilst Good John was one of the few who went to Hampden to see the side gain some kind of revenge on Kazakhstan with a 3-1 win. With three wins to end the section, it’s a starting point for Steve Clarke to build upon for the crucial Euro 2020 playoffs in March.

So, who will Scotland face – Bulgaria, Hungary, Israel or Romania? The whole complicated process of Euro 2020 is covered by the guys. This should be the first and last time we see a Multi-host event for the Euro’s! By the time they come, some absent stars should be available, but where should Kieran Tierney play?

Away from the International scene, the Challenge Cup saw Raith Rovers, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Partick Thistle and Rangers Under 21’s advance to the Semi Final stage. Partick will host Raith whilst the young Rangers will travel to Inverness. The tournament is parked until February.

We choose Ryan Christie’s goal for Scotland against Cyprus as our #pickitoot for the week and preview the weekends League action, which returns after the International break.

And finally, the Scottish Football Forums Podcast can reveal that we have organised a Charity Over 35’s match between fans of Aberdeen and Celtic. The game will take place on Sunday 29 March 2020 at Broadwood Stadium with a 1200 kickoff. All proceeds from the game will go to mental health charity Back Onside, who specialise in assisting people with mental health issues by offering support and counselling. The game will also feature some former players from either side, of which we will reveal in due course.

For further information on the charity, please visit their website <a href="https://backonside.co.uk/"https://backonside.co.uk or follow on Twitter @BackOnside

This week sees Good John return to join F Bomb John and Krys.

We start off with the news of the two Edinburgh clubs getting rid of their managers. There is a bit of chat about what went wrong and the potential for someone to come in and do well.

There was a fair bit of League action with Motherwell getting two wins in the week that Robinson is linked with the Hearts job. Aberdeen responded well from their defeat with two wins and back to back clean sheets.

Following on from the League Cup games at the weekend, we discuss whether Scott Brown will be regarded as a Celtic legend when he retires.

Dundee have won three games in a row ahead of the Dundee derby on Friday. We discuss the lower leagues and how results affected what is going on there.

Congratulations are in order to Glasgow City qualifying for the Champions League quarter finals. We discuss their success.

We have a bit of Scotland chat on the day the squad is announced.
