I am joined by Krys and Laurie. Celtic’s victory against Spartak Moscow, and subsequent qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League, is the first item on the agenda. Krys follows that with his review of the SPL and we all discuss the main points from the weekend. I cover the SFL, although the [Read more]
Dundee United have led the way in recent years, having a reputation of pulling good players from the depths of Scottish football. Danny Swanson, Morgaro Gomis, Barry Douglas, Craig Conway and new arrivals Mark Millar & Michael Gardyne have all been plucked from the lower leagues in Scotland. Now Dundee United are an established top [Read more]
Laurie makes his long awaited return to the podcast after a sabbatical to concentrate on his uni work. You can tell he is in charge of editing again when you hear the intro music. Greig is sick (not like that) and misses this week, so it’s me (Craig), Krys and Laurie. We cover two rounds [Read more]

The likes of Rangers, Hearts and Aberdeen have already been eliminated, and with Celtic facing a potentially difficult trip to Easter Road, this year may offer a golden opportunity for a non Old Firm side to [Read more]
It’s that time again folks. The Scottish football season is about to get underway, but before all that even starts, Dundee United are in action in the 2nd Qualifying round of the Europa League. Both legs of their tie with Polish cracks, Slask Wroclaw, will be done and dusted before the SPL kicks off, starting [Read more]
For many years the SPL clubs overspent, and an influx of highly paid foreigners left our game in a terrible state. From Rangers breaking the Scottish transfer record to sign Tore Andre Flo, to Hibernian spending the best part of one million pounds on Ulises de la Cruz, for a time our clubs were spending [Read more]
Neil Doncaster announced that the 2011-12 SPL season is due to start early. Is this a good idea?
