S10E84 Scot Squad Six

In the last episode of season 10, we have a special with two John’s, two Scott’s, Krys and Erin.

We cover the game against Croatia, the buzz that is surrounding the national team, best moments of the tournament off the pitch, football food, great songs, fantasy football and much more.

The campaign starts now for Scott McGill to play live at Hampden for Scotland v Moldova as he talks us through his recent celebrity outings. Our other guest Erin who was lucky enough to be at Hampden for Croatia game gives us an insight in to what is was like.

We’d like to thank everyone who has supported the podcast this season through our guest specials, regular podcasts, social media interaction and more.

We’ll be back next season with one of our guests potentially becoming a new regular. Exciting times.

S10E83 Euro 2020 Group D Special

On the latest podcast the two John’s and Scott are delighted to welcome returning guest Russell from 3 Lions Podcast and a first time guest in Lovre from the Croatian Footy Podcast. We did ask Scott if he would act as the Czech Republic representative but he passed.

The discussion naturally focuses on the group so far as we discuss how our respective teams have done, what has gone well and what hasn’t. As everyone knows going in to the last game any of the teams could qualify for the knockout stages.

There is good natured banter between us all as we preview the final games in the group.

We round up the podcast with discussion on who has impressed and who has under performed.

Thanks to our guests for coming on and may we finish off by saying COME ON SCOTLAND!

S10E82 Scotland Schickened

On our latest Euros special we have the two John’s on, Scott and Ross who makes his second appearance on the podcast. Ross is in the process of writing a book about France ’98 which we discuss towards the end of the podcast.

Last week we were full of positivity and we’ve tried to stay on that journey despite the result against Czech Republic. There was hope and expectation but it was not to be. The guys discuss where it potentially went wrong in terms of selection, tactics and more. Maybe on another day we take our chances…

There is plenty of laughter which seems bizarre and it surrounds food for a surprise. From a football point of view we need to remember that this is an inexperienced squad which seems to be constantly learning and reacting to situations. Can we cause a shock against the Auld Enemy? We select who we’d like to start.

We discuss the tournament in general so far and who has impressed us plus what we are looking forward to.

Tribute is paid to Motherwell fan Andy Paterson who was a recent guest on the podcast. He sadly passed away and our thoughts are with his friends and family.

S10E81 Euros Extravaganza Preview

We have a seven a side team that needs no introduction as we preview Euro 2020 but I’ll give you one anyway. The two John’s are joined by regulars from this season Donald, Scott and Tony plus Krys makes a welcome return and we have the star of Mr Brown’s Boys in Iain from The Famous Tartan Army Magazine.

It’s been 23 years since we qualifies for a tournament but even longer since we were last in the Euros. Once again we’ve been paired with the Auld Enemy and some familiar faces in Croatia and Czech Republic. It’s been that long since we last qualified that podcasts weren’t even a thing.

The podcast covers predictions in terms of who will line up for Scotland in the first game. Can we get past the group stage for the first time in our history? There is a belief around the players and fans that we can possibly do something special. Can we dare to dream?

It’s been a long journey and one that we didn’t maybe believe would happen but we’re a team which has been transformed under the leadership of Saint Steve as we’re now calling him.

It appears like it will be an open tournament with games spread across Europe but we make our predictions on who will win and what players are in the running for the golden boot.

Favourite Scotland tops, Euro memories, songs and much more are all up for discussion as the excitement builds to Monday.

The podcast concludes with a 7 a side team from the upcoming tournament.

S10E80 Euros Bonanza

In the latest of our Euros preview specials, John has THREE guests on the one show as he is joined by Hampden Announcer Graeme Easton, Sky Sports News reporter Charles Paterson, and Scotland fan Neil Doherty, who has written a book based on Scotland’s last major tournament adventure.

We start by reviewing Scotland’s 2-2 draw with Netherlands in the first of two pre-tournament warm up matches. The consensus is that Scotland could take many positives from the performance and why we can go into the tournament with no fear. Naturally, this leads us to thinking about the last Euro’s we played at in Euro ’96 and some of our earliest memories watching Scotland at a major finals, and why there is a belief that this crop can go one better than their sides of the past by reaching the knockout phases.

Neil then tells us about his book, “World Cup 1998: Scotland’s story”, where he got the inspiration from, the research he put in and how deep he went into writing the story. He also gives an insight into going about producing a self-published book and tips he received before it went on sale. Neil’s book can be bought from Amazon and comes highly recommended (from John at least, who’s bought it and read most of it so far).

Next up, Graeme tells us about his role at Hampden during the finals, what to expect from a playlist point of view and if his Croatian/Czech phrases are up to scratch. Charles then gives an insight into what we can expect from Sky Sports News during the Finals.

We round off with a round of quick fire questions including best Scotland playlist songs, Scotland kits and a 6 a-side Scotland team, before playing out with Scott McGill’s new song “Whatever It Takes”, which is available to download with all proceeds going to Strathcarron Hospice.

S10E79 Euros Commentators Special 2: Rory Hamilton

In part two of our Euro’s commentators special, John is joined by
Rory Hamilton, Scotland’s voice for BT and Premier Sports. Rory tells us all about his summer job, commentating on Scotland’s games for STV at the Euro’s. He talks about the honour of being asked to be the channels voice for the Finals, including the England v Scotland game being broadcast on STV, and how easy a decision it became when it was uncertain that fans could be at the tournament. Rory then goes into his memories of supporting Scotland at World Cup’s and European Championships in the 90’s, why it’s taken us so long to qualify again, and what it was like for a man who followed Scotland abroad for 15 years to watch that moment at home with his dog. We then discuss Scotland’s chances of doing well and getting rid of that “glorious failure” tag that irritates Rory before rounding off with Rory making some amendments to his best Scotland XI.

S10E78 Euros Commentators Special 1: Sam Matterface

In the latest of our Euro’s preview podcasts, we have part one of our commentators specials as John is joined by Sam Matterface, the voice of ITV. He talks through the journey that has led him to becoming the channel’s main commentator, meaning he gets the honour of commentating at all of England’s matches at the tournament. He talks about his approach to England games compared to other matches, the research that goes on and the reputation Scotland fans give to English commentators. Naturally, we lead onto the England v Scotland game, being covered by the station, and he promises balance as he is joined by Lee Dixon and Ally McCoist. He then goes onto discuss the potential England squad (since fully confirmed) and hopes for England at the Finals.
