S9E26 We Achieved The Points

It’s a two man show this week as Krys and good John are on to talk about the final matches of 2019, and the last fixtures before the top flight goes on it’s winter break.

The discussion starts off with Boxing Day’s Edinburgh derby and differing fortunes both on the day and then into the weekend fixtures. There’s a bit of a theme across the two sets of fixtures as most teams that did well in one didn’t do quite so well in the other. Notable exceptions included St Johnstone who had quite a good week, and Kilmarnock who didn’t. Despite this, they have appointed their manager until the end of the season, and we discuss why on Earth anyone thinks that’s deserved.

There’s praise for Hamilton for doing what Hamilton always seem to do, St Mirren for somehow winning games narrowly, Livingston for making the most of their plastic pitch, and of course Rangers for coming out on top in Sunday’s big televised match. Krys even holds his hands up, which is ironic given how Celtic got their goal on Sunday. He’s not the only one holding his hands up though, as we discuss the various gestures made at the game.

And speaking of Cove Rangers…

It’s as you were at the top of League Two, there’s some high scoring matches in League One, and the Championship is already decided but we discuss what’s happening behind Dundee United. We also speculate following the sad news of the death of Colin Weir on how that will impact the plans for Partick Thistle. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.

Finally we look back over our highs and lows of 2019, which sadly doesn’t mean forgetting about Scotland or Only An Excuse, but we all hope 2020 looks brighter for the national team.

Thanks as always for listening, and we hope you come back to join us in 2020.

S9E25 The Kevin Twaddle Interview

F Bomb John and Krys are on and are privileged to be joined by ex professional footballer Kevin Twaddle.

Kevin talks us through his career where he started off in the Juniors and managed to play senior football for a few teams including Hearts who he grew up supporting. He has some terrific stories to tell and he also answers all our weird and wonderful questions. He talks us through his troubles off the pitch in terms of his gambling issues and the book he wrote, “Life On the Line: How to Lose a Million and So Much More”.

We could easily have listened to Kevin talk even more about his career due to all the interesting stories he talks about.

The Premiership review covers how Hearts are doing under their new manager. We cover the controversial tackles and good results for Motherwell and Livingston.

Due to it being a longer one than usual we skip the lower league review.

Thanks again to Kevin for coming on and we wish all our listeners a Happy Christmas.

Thanks as always for listening.

We start off with Good John promoting the Back Onside game between Aberdeen/Tayside X1 v Back Onside X1 which will take place next May.

The lower leagues are covered, starting off with the Championship. Dundee United look like they’re starting to run away with it.

Rangers and Celtic continue their battle at the top of the table while Aberdeen moved back in to third. At the other end of the table Hamilton and Hearts face a big game this coming weekend.

Rangers joined Celtic in qualifying for the last 32 of the Europa League and found out their fate today in terms of who they will play.

S9E23 Stag Do in Fort William

It’s a busy podcast this week as the regular trio are joined by Aaron from Fauldhouse United.

We start with the action from last midweek which leads us in to the Premiership action from Saturday.

As we’ve got Aaron on we get him to talk us through the events of Fauldhouse United’s Junior Cup tie at Bridge of Don. There was a fair bit of publicity around the tie after it was initially called off due to suspicious reasons.

The lower leagues are covered with the game of the weekend being in League Two. Our #pickitoot moment also came there as Brechin City’s goalkeeper Lewis McGinn scored.

Krys and Aaron talk us through the League Cup final as Celtic made it 10 domestic trophies in a row.

Aaron has recently launched a football project called Time to Tackle. He discusses how it’s been going in terms of helping others through football therapy.

We finish off by discussing Cowdenbeath’s David Cox and the unnecessary abuse that he has received that may force him to quit football.

Thanks as always for listening.

S9E22 Sheldon Says Manzinga

It’s just the two of us tonight as F Bomb John and Krys are on. Good John is otherwise occupied by Woody.

There’s plenty to chat about with various cup competitions, league action and the pyramid system.

We start off by briefly discussing Auchinleck Talbot’s Scottish Cup journey coming to an end this season. This leads on to some chat about the pyramid system and when the teams from West Region may enter.

After that we start the Premiership review by going back to last midweek. It’s a bit all over the place after that as we round up what happened at the weekend. Sunday’s games are discussed along with what went on in Europe and the upcoming League Cup final.

Hearts are still without a manager but that looks like that may be about to change.

The lower leagues are reviewed with Airdrie sneaking up to the top of League One.

We round up the podcast by talking about Fauldhouse United whose Scottish Junior Cup tie got postponed again.

Thanks as always for listening.
