Soccer FM is a new weekly podcast feature for season 2016-2017 which we are hosting. The show is a short sharp and hopefully witty review of the weekend's major talking points across the SPFL and is hosted by Dunfermline fan Steven Mill (of Capital FM fame) and Partick Thistle supporter and comedian Ray Bradshaw.
We hope you enjoy it and get involved with the lads as the show takes shape over the coming weeks.

Hearts and Raith Rovers played out a scrappy 1-1 draw in today’s Scottish Cup fourth-round match at Stark’s Park.
Jamie Walker had given the Jambos the lead but Declan McManus’ last-minute equaliser means they’ll have to do it all over again on Wednesday at Tynecastle.
Ian Cathro handed debuts to all four of his January signings. Lenard Sowah, Aaron Hughes and Andraz Struna made up the defence alongside John Souttar, while Malaury Martin slotted in behind frontman Bjorn Johnsen.
Hearts started on the front foot but it was Raith who had the best chance of the opening ten minutes. Ross Callachan dropped a delightful ball into the six-yard box but before Mark Stewart could get to it, Souttar popped up with a fantastic block.
Nine minutes later the Jambos had an opportunity of their own. Martin’s corner from the right was met by Perry Kitchen, but he could only force his header wide of the target.
An incisive breakaway in the 37th minute saw Hearts take the lead. Don Cowie latched on to a misplaced pass and carried the ball into the box before slipping through Walker, who had time to take a touch before slotting low beyond Kevin Cuthbert in the Raith goal.
Martin started the second-half with a spectacular effort, curling the ball inches over the crossbar from an angle, after Struna touched it back to him at the edge of the box.
The home side should’ve been level in the 57th minute. Kevin McHattie skipped past Souttar to sweep the ball across the face of goal for the unmarked Stewart to connect, but incredibly, he could only hit the crossbar from five-yards out and the chance was gone.
What followed were a few minutes of constant Raith pressure. Hamilton did well to get a good hand to a Callachan effort to push the ball wide, then moments later the ‘keeper beat away a half-volley from Iain Davidson.
The game became scrappy and was on a knife-edge heading into the final ten minutes. Raith substitute Declan McManus turned his man on the edge of the box but could only drag his shot well wide of the target.
With one minute of regulation time on the clock, disaster struck. Substitute Rudi Skacel hit a sweet half-volley into the goalmouth and McManus popped up to nod the ball beyond Hamilton and into the back of the net.
Raith Rovers: Cuthbert, McHattie, Callachan, M'Voto, Benedictus, Johnston (Hardie, 69'), Stewart (McManus, 81'), B.Barr, Matthews, Davidson, Thompson (Skacel, 81'). Subs: Brennan, Thomson, Roberts, C.Barr.
Hearts: Hamilton, Struna, Hughes, Souttar, Sowah, Nowak, Kitchen, Cowie, Martin, Walker (Zanatta, 86'), Johnsen. Subs: Noring, L.Smith, Godinho, Beith, Sammon, Currie.
Referee: John Beaton
Top Man: Aaron Hughes
Your website people voted a donkey as the 'Top Man'
This must be a topic of embarrassment to the guys who actually put in a shift.
Ticket count under 100..but SCTV says over 100? Confused..i hear you have another departure after yesterdays game! talented Keeper as well, and a local lad, have to say after watching yesterdays game could be a massive mistake...2 x ex senior keepers leaving in the space of 2 months, replaced by somebody from the amateur league? you lot saving cash?
Not me but someone else.
Last time I was in the Lake District at the top of a hill there was two lassies, they were sitting about but something was up one didn't move and the other kinda shifted about at the front. I thought maybe they were hurt or needed help so hurried up a bit. Got closer and they stood up and left sharpish, went past me and didn't respond to me asking if they were ok.
Left a massive fucking toley at the top of Cat Bells ffs. It's like the busiest hill in the U.K.!
I burst out laughing then noticed a posh family going over and then heard "mummy mummy ewww"
