F-Bomb John shows off his proud new nickname in front of Good John and No Nickname Krys on this week’s podcast.
We start off with a review of Celtic in Europe as they advance in style past Nomme Kalju and onto Cluj, with Krys firing off as many bad puns as he can manage. There’s previews of both Rangers and Aberdeen later this week as they both hope to Progres to the third qualifying round of the Europa League.
The League Cup sectionals come to an end and there’s a couple of surprise names in the second round, with East Fife particularly happy to get one of the big names in the draw. Forfar got there thanks to another defeat for St Johnstone, leaving Tommy Wright unsurprisingly one of the favourites in the sack race.
Meanwhile Albion Rovers came close to getting out of their section ahead of St Mirren, which leads us nicely into Good John’s interview with Albion Rovers manager Kevin Harper. Kevin tells us about his time in charge at Cliftonhill so far, saving Albion Rovers from the playoffs in the process, and his thoughts going into the new season for both his current team and also how his former team Hibernian might do.
Back on the podcast, we take a look at our league predictions for the coming season. For full coverage check out the blog where you’ll find them all including our thoughts on the cup competitions. We end with a look forward to the opening day league fixtures this weekend.
