It’s a two man show this week as Krys and good John are on to talk about the final matches of 2019, and the last fixtures before the top flight goes on it’s winter break.
The discussion starts off with Boxing Day’s Edinburgh derby and differing fortunes both on the day and then into the weekend fixtures. There’s a bit of a theme across the two sets of fixtures as most teams that did well in one didn’t do quite so well in the other. Notable exceptions included St Johnstone who had quite a good week, and Kilmarnock who didn’t. Despite this, they have appointed their manager until the end of the season, and we discuss why on Earth anyone thinks that’s deserved.
There’s praise for Hamilton for doing what Hamilton always seem to do, St Mirren for somehow winning games narrowly, Livingston for making the most of their plastic pitch, and of course Rangers for coming out on top in Sunday’s big televised match. Krys even holds his hands up, which is ironic given how Celtic got their goal on Sunday. He’s not the only one holding his hands up though, as we discuss the various gestures made at the game.
And speaking of Cove Rangers…
It’s as you were at the top of League Two, there’s some high scoring matches in League One, and the Championship is already decided but we discuss what’s happening behind Dundee United. We also speculate following the sad news of the death of Colin Weir on how that will impact the plans for Partick Thistle. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.
Finally we look back over our highs and lows of 2019, which sadly doesn’t mean forgetting about Scotland or Only An Excuse, but we all hope 2020 looks brighter for the national team.
Thanks as always for listening, and we hope you come back to join us in 2020.
