S5E15 – Old School

Krys is on holiday, John pretends that he is busy studying / skiving and Andy is having technical problems, so things are desperate this week. So desperate in fact that the podcast has gone old school, with Craig and Greig sitting in to talk about the last week in Scottish football. A whole hour of football chat from the duo – what could be better than that.

Sportscene gets it with both barrels, which is a bit of a trend over the seasons on the podcast. To highlight how woeful it was this past week, Craig sets up the worst quiz that has ever been recorded. The question is badly worded, with the answer being way too obvious, and the prize on offer hardly worth winning.

After listening to Craig’s tactical review of Rangers’ formation against Hibs, you might be mistaken for thinking that you are listening to someone that has a UEFA Pro Licence. Does 5-3-2 equal ten outfield players?

All six Premiership games are discussed in more detail than Sportscene, with midweek League Cup games also covered, although we all know that nobody cares about the League Cup (least of all a Motherwell and Rangers fan).

With the regular team away doing other things, Craig and Greig think it’s the perfect time to get a charity bet win, just to show how easy it can be. The charity double was chosen via some sensible analysis of form, whereas an alternative strategy was chosen for the first scorer bet.

Hibs vs Dundee United, Celtic vs Molde and the weekend’s games are all previewed, complete with score predictions for the Premiership games.

Remember, remember, the 4th of November.

Thank you to McBookie for donating the charity bet stake.
