It’s Krys and Good John this week, F-Bomb John has taken an extended break.
We kick off with a brief review of the conclusion to Scotland’s Euro 2020 Qualifying campaign. A decent 2-1 in Cyprus saw the Scots come away with a 2-1 win, whilst Good John was one of the few who went to Hampden to see the side gain some kind of revenge on Kazakhstan with a 3-1 win. With three wins to end the section, it’s a starting point for Steve Clarke to build upon for the crucial Euro 2020 playoffs in March.
So, who will Scotland face – Bulgaria, Hungary, Israel or Romania? The whole complicated process of Euro 2020 is covered by the guys. This should be the first and last time we see a Multi-host event for the Euro’s! By the time they come, some absent stars should be available, but where should Kieran Tierney play?
Away from the International scene, the Challenge Cup saw Raith Rovers, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Partick Thistle and Rangers Under 21’s advance to the Semi Final stage. Partick will host Raith whilst the young Rangers will travel to Inverness. The tournament is parked until February.
We choose Ryan Christie’s goal for Scotland against Cyprus as our #pickitoot for the week and preview the weekends League action, which returns after the International break.
And finally, the Scottish Football Forums Podcast can reveal that we have organised a Charity Over 35’s match between fans of Aberdeen and Celtic. The game will take place on Sunday 29 March 2020 at Broadwood Stadium with a 1200 kickoff. All proceeds from the game will go to mental health charity Back Onside, who specialise in assisting people with mental health issues by offering support and counselling. The game will also feature some former players from either side, of which we will reveal in due course.
