S9E35 Rangers Three Goal Brag(a)

It’s our third offering of the week as the regular trio of the two John’s and Krys are on.

We discuss what’s been going on in Scottish football in a busy week.

There is the Scottish Cup which saw the two John’s attend Rugby Park in a remarkable game. This links in with us previewing the quarter finals.

We also cover the weekend action in the Premiership and other leagues. It’s getting interesting as teams fight it out for promotion, relegation and to stay safe.

The podcast concludes with some chat about Scotland and some random chat that goes off on a tangent.

S9E34B Gary Dempsey Interview

As part of our Mental Health Awareness, Good John got in touch with former Dunfermline and Aberdeen midfielder Gary Dempsey. Over the last few months, Gary has become an advocate of Mental Health Awareness by frequently posting videos with messages of positivity, hope and encouragement for those in need of help to come forward. More recently, he got in touch with eight-year old Dunfermline fan Ollie Young, who was the subject of bullying at school and left a letter for his mum saying he hated himself. Gary has gone above the call of duty to help Ollie, from a video call with him to arranging a game of football with Ollie and his friends in Dunfermline.

Gary talks openly about the events that led him to talk openly, the difference in changing rooms from his time to now regarding opening up and the role the media and every one of us has to play to ensure nobody suffers in silence. This is a must-listen!

S9E34 Phil McGuire 2.0

We’ve a slightly different podcast as the two John’s are joined by current Carnoustie Panmure manager Phil McGuire. The guys are delighted to have him on to discuss his career at Aberdeen.

We begin by previewing the weekend game against Lochee United which is a massive game. Phil talks us through what the changes have been that have made them title contenders.

As Carnoustie Panmure are linked up with Back Onside we discuss how the club got involved. We preview the charity game that we’ve arranged plus the other one that is taking place.

That then leads on to his time at Aberdeen and the different memories.

Phil tells us some stories about the characters he played with too and picks his best eleven and subs from players he played with.

A reminder that you can donate using our Just Giving page to support the work that Back Onside do and raise much needed funds.

We may have another podcast to discuss the usual stuff that we talk about week to week.

Thanks for listening.

S9E33 Lop Sided Pyramid

Krys returns this week as he joins the two John’s to discuss what’s been going on in Scottish football.

There’s plenty to cover as there was a midweek card last week, weekend fixtures, Challenge Cup action and a few lower league matches.

We’ve also got an update on the Pyramid system with it looking like a West of Scotland league will be introduced as soon as next season.

The Junior Cup quarter finals take place this weekend.

European football returns for Celtic and Rangers so we discuss their chances of going through.

We finish off with some chat about mental health and some more information about our upcoming charity game in support of the work that Back Onside do.

Thanks for listening.

S9E32 Storm in a Scottish Cup

It’s the two John’s on tonight as they discuss what has been going on in Scottish football.

We were hoping to have Phil McGuire this week but unfortunately he has had to reschedule.

The Scottish Cup takes up most of this week with six ties being decided. There was only one real upset with Inverness beating Livingston. BSC Glasgow gave a good account of themselves and hopefully the money they have earned can lead to them finding permanent facilities.

We skim through midweek fixtures from last as we try not to bore the listeners with too much Aberdeen chat. There’s certainly no goals to talk about for the Dons. We’ve got another Premiership midweek set of fixtures coming up as the games come in thick and fast.

The lower leagues are discussed in terms of where it leaves teams as they aim for promotion or to get enough points to be safe from relegation.

This leads us on to some Pyramid chat with another couple clubs in the West Region of the Juniors declaring their intentions.

The podcast concludes with a wee bit of Scotland chat and the upcoming charity game.

In terms of the charity game there is a Just Giving page set up if anyone would like to donate to help raise funds for Back Onside.

We’re also going to be doing a raffle so of anyone can donate any prizes we’d appreciate it. We’ve got some good ones so far from Aberdeen and Celtic which should have a fair bit of interest.
Thanks as always for listening.

S9E31 The Self Preservation Pyramid

It’s the regular trio of the two John’s and Krys on this week as they discuss the current events in Scottish football.

We start by covering the lower leagues. Dundee United slipped up against Arbroath. The guys discuss whether they could be contenders for the Premiership playoff. Raith Rovers extended their lead in League One and Cove Rangers only drew but Edinburgh City couldn’t take advantage.

The chat leads us on to the Pyramid system with news that the teams in the West Region appear to have been blocked from joining. A few clubs have made statements in a story which we’ve not heard the last of.

Celtic extended their lead at the top in the Premiership, Hearts continue to show signs of improvement under Stendel as they moved off the bottom of the league and Kilmarnock won their first game in a while.

We finish off by previewing the midweek Premiership games and the Scottish Cup fifth round.

Thanks as always for listening.
