S817 – Simulation Jackson

t’s the Two John’s this week as Krys takes a weeks break. As usual, there was a lot to discuss.

Both Old Firm sides had contrasting results in their Europa League matches, and the theme continued domestically on Sunday. Was a red card shown in the wrong game?

The rest of the Premiership action brought lots of talking points as Aberdeen moved into the top six, St Johnstone made it five wins in a row without conceding a goal, Kilmarnock became the first side to win at Tynecastle (can they do a Leicester this season) and the bottom two did little to enhance their confidence in a draw at Dens Park.

Scotland’s upcoming Nations League matches against Albania and Israel brought the usual discussion on who should make the starting line up, thoughts on the latest withdrawals and call ups, particularly in the goalkeeping department.

In the lower divisions, Partick Thistle continue to slide, Arbroath’s surprise march goes on and Albion Rovers hope the only way is up under new manager Kevin Harper.

It was also a big week for TV deals as the SFA announce a deal with Premier Sports and BBC Scotland for the Scottish Cup, whilst the Sky v BT bid for Premiership rights is discussed.
