S5E23 Busier Than Santa

It’s the first podcast of the new year, and boy do we hit the ground running for 2016. Krys is joined by Andy and as always he gives us his perspective of Scottish Football from his Highland base. It’s good timing as well, with a Highland derby having just taken place, Elgin City hitting top spot in League Two, and Peterhead going well in League One.

With two rounds of Premiership fixtures having been played since we last recorded, and no fewer than 35 goals scored across those fixtures we’re almost glad that two games were called off in that period! That and a look at the Championship as the top three all win and St Mirren take bragging rights in the Renfrewshire derby.

And then, just as you’d think we’re all finished, it’s Scottish Cup weekend coming up! We look at some of the key fixtures, including the guarantee of a non-league club in the fifth round, wonder just why St Mirren and Partick Thistle are playing on Friday night if they’re not on TV, and of course look a the big tie of the round where Andy makes a bold prediction.

And just top it all off, one of the two charity bets came in at the weekend. The total so far has now reached £356.28 and hopefully we’ve not been too greedy with this week’s choices as we try to add to that pot. Thanks as always to McBookie for providing the stakes in our charity bet.
