Episode 18 – Cyprus vs Scotland, SPL restructure and SPL preview

Krys is this weeks guest, as he joins Craig and Laurie. His appearance follows his first article for the site, which was titled Scottish Football On Life Support.

Scotland’s 2-1 friendly victory over Cyprus is reviewed and we discuss whether we can take any benefits from narrowly beating a team, who are nearly 60 places behind us in the FIFA rankings.

Following Falkirk’s defeat to Ross County, Steven Pressley mentioned the benefits of a larger SPL, so we discuss whether this would be a good thing.

Next weekend sees the return of the SPL, which means it’s time for us to make our predictions for the upcoming games. It also allows us to reflect on our standings in the SFF SPL predictor.

Following Paul Band’s narrow miss last week (only 8 goals out), he returns by predicting that St Mirren will draw 0-0 with Dunfermline. Hopefully the prediction comes true, as we have our standard £5 bet on the result, with any winnings going to charity at the end of the season.
