John Collins on last night’s show talking about football academies. “Celtic are the Scottish equivalent of Ajax.” Ajax fill their team with their football academy players year after year and sell them on for millions of Euros. Celtic have Kieran Tierney.

St Johnstone had 7 academy graduates in the squad for the final but no mention of this.

The entire (10 minutes or so) time spent discussing St Johnstone’s cup win was utter patronising pish.

They’ll bring on McFadden as their Motherwell representative to talk about him for 2 minutes then he’ll just talk about who’ll get the Celtic job for the rest of it.

Yup, that's exactly what happened. That and McFadden touting himself for the Ayr United managers job, or any managers job.

Then straight back onto discussing celtic.

 

My team Ross County only ever get a fleeting mention due to John "Yogi" Hughes being one of their pals. God help the club once he eventually gets punted for getting us relegated.

I have just listened to the podcast and it sounds like a completely different programme to the one you listened to. For a start there was no mention of Celtic whatsoever. And the thing that I loved about the show yesterday was the clip that they played of an interview that Kenny McIntyre did with Ian St John 10 years ago. It was a great few minutes and makes me want to hear the full interview. Also a nice wee call with Willie Henderson about his time with Ian St John in the Scotland team. It was a very varied show last night and much better than usual.

25 minutes since the final whistles went in Livi vs Rangers and Hamilton vs St Johnstone and so far they’ve discussed Rangers (10 minutes), Steve Clarke taking the Celtic job (5 minutes), Livi (2 minutes) then back to Rangers. I don’t think they’ve mentioned the Hamilton game once, which was just as dramatic as the Livi one and probably far more significant in implications for the league table and relegation.

That's twice in as many weeks that they've acknowledged there's been a goal at another match and not gone to the commentators at that game.    Last night when the Sainties scored 'Theres been a goal in the Hamilton game' but they didn't go to it or say what team had scored because fucking TCFKAR had a corner.  In a game they were winning.  The last time was on 'Open some mikes' programme when they stayed with the Celtic game when there was a goal in the St Miren game.    

 

I'm fairly mellow and level headed, but f**k sake...!  The BBC haven't even been allowed inside Ibrox for years, why do they continually pander to these people?

It's taken until just now but finally there had been acknowledgement that Hearts are a bit pish. Allan Preston even said that Hearts would be bottom 6 in the Premiership with their current squad.

Michael Stewart couldn't help himself though by saying that they would comfortably be a mid table team.

I remember at the start of the season after they skelped Dundee in the first game all the chat on Sportsound  was “They could well go the entire season undefeated” and “This squad would be qualifying for Europe in the SPL”. Until you actually look at the players at their disposal and realise that most of them are bang average SPL players, and any that have been better than that (Gordon, Berra, Naismith, GMS) are well and truly past it.

SPL doesn't exist and hasn't for years

 

Pedantry aside, aye, they were saying how Hearts would definitely have won the 8 games that weren't played and would have easily stayed up. As you note they were wanking about Hearts going unbeaten and were saying how they had a top 6 squad. The other notable bit of nonsense was how Boyce was going to score 30 goals.

I get that it probably is a shite game, but the Morton vs Ayr game deserves more of a half time report than "Nil nil".

Unfunny and just shows their contempt for anything outside of the Premiership.

Even just a couple of lines about why the game is so poor would be better. Are both teams nullifying each other? Are both teams just sitting back and asking the other to attack? Are they both playing ineffective long ball so the midfield aren't getting a chance to do anything?

Chick was trying to be funny.  He's a more genuine wage thief than any player who has ever set foot in the Scottish game.

Meanwhile, it was easy to work out who the penalty at Tynecastle was for - "Biscuits" sounded like someone had just died.

"The fans have been starved of success for so long". Nope, not Morton, not East Stirlingshire, but Sevco.

Stuart McCall, covering Sevco vs Saints,  hadn’t a fucking clue who any Saints player was.

“St Mirren have made a change. McGrath has gone off and er...Hold on, I wrote the lads name down hold on a piece of paper...let me check...I’ve got it here...the boy Flynn has come on.”

I know they don’t really give a f**k about the other 40 clubs, but at least put a modicum of effort in to looking at both teams, at the very least have the team lines in front of you.

Awkward silence as they wait for Pat Bonner to realise that the orange smoke bombs on 55 minutes might not be from Dundee United fans...

Saturday was the first time I've listened to the show for a good hour rather than catching a few odd minutes. These two kill the format. Chick took his trademark sarky, spoilt attitude beloved by no one and was personally affronted that two teams battling at the bottom of the Championship were not delivering a goalfest. 

Allan "tragic nickname" Preston continually derailed the show through his inane clubhouse patter and rudely interrupting colleagues' goal reports with unnecessary substitution/half-chance roars in his horrific Scrappy-Doo voice.

Two charmless, unprofessional, obsolete people who'd have been shown the door years ago if there was any accountability or pride in the production.

Yup.  The Sportsound team isn't exactly stellar, but if they ditched Chick and Preston (well, OK, let's add Bonner too) then the programme would be significantly more listenable.  I wonder if anyone at the BBC ever does performance appraisals on these goons?  It seems they have jobs for life - which is bad news for us listeners.

Wonder how many of the players involved in the substitutions are clients of Preston?
