Not that I want to defend macintyre too much, but I’m guessing he doesn’t choose the topics of discussion. 

Surely there’s a production team that make these decisions prior to the show then macintyre is just there to keep it on track. 

Mentioned before on here that I know someone who writes for the BBC.

His view, and he's only one guy, is that the whole problem with Sportsound is the producer.

Essentially clueless and sticks with the same favourites all the time. Said everyone had a chuckle at McIntyre's talk of being nervous about his 'interview' for the role, as there was zero possibility of him not getting it.

The producer sees absolutely no problems with the current show.

As I said, this is one guy. But one guy who works for the BBC in Scottish football and knows the people involved.

Obviously radio has leaned towards sound bites for social media and maybe that’s just the whole premise. Choose powder keg topics that generate a reaction online. The old firm are good for this as you just need to suggest their routine 4-0 win wasn’t wholly impressive and they sob uncontrollably. 

Aye, that makes a degree of sense for - maybe Clyde FM - but it seems bizarre that R Scotland would take this approach.

A non scientific poll of anyone I speak to in real life suggests that bemusement with their output isnt just a P&B trope and the general consensus is "its shite but no alternative".

And if fans of Hibs and Aberdeen think its not relevant to them, it must be absolutely awful for those supporting clubs in the Championship and below.

..............you wonder if they canvas opinion from listeners tbqhwy.

If they don't that just adds to the incompetence behind the programme. (Or a total disregard for supporters views). I'd be very surprised if 'they' don't read through this thread - being on Scotland's premier all-club forum. (Or it's a total disregard for all clubs). Like @Leith Green I've long since abandoned this show. And as breadth of coverage contracts more of us will abandon ship, with a potential decline in interest in teams in the lower tiers and others outwith their favoured (2) clubs.

I always listen after the matches in the car mainly to get all of the other Scottish results and to get an interview with our manager to get his take on what has happened at the match I've been at.

What a boring b*****d Neil McCann is. You get the feeling that every time he's on the radio or TV, he thinks it's a job interview. 

Not everyone can be as Interesting as you are tbf.

Ive always assumed, much like the OTB thread, that they'll not give a f**k what's written here. Football forums arent exactly viewed as the place for balance and reasoned opinions.

I'm guessing as long as the listening figures keep hitting the target they'll keep doing what they're doing.

It's the BBC, they're not even under real pressure to hit targets.

Is it just me or do they seem to be having technical issues more regularly this season? Barely five minutes seems to go by without Kenny Macintyre having to apologise for not being able to get someone on the line. You'd think after all these years they'd be able to get some reliable kit and/or people capable of using it.

It's 10 to 3 on a Saturday afternoon and not one bit of team news from any other game.

It's absolutely pathetic. I'm dreading when they actually bring in VAR because even without it they can't stop going on about it. Just another excuse, as if Kenny needs it, to go on about Old Firm games at the expense of every other team in the country. They've barely talked about anything else on any of the Saturday Sportsound's since the league season started. Aye, our referees are shite, this isn't a new development.

I'm not just huffing because I don't want to hear about United but most of the last hour picking over the bones and nothing from the lower leagues. Every time McIntyre tries to run through the scores he gets interrupted before L2 and never goes back to it.

I thought it might be an editorial decision but it's clear McIntyre just doesn't know/care enough.

Also Leanne should just be given the gig.

Caught a bit today, If it wasn’t for Leanne the whole show would fall apart. The amount of times she had to remind Derek Ferguson or Miller to actually do their jobs was mental.

Listened to it today for the first time in ages. Fucking awful production.

Willie Collum sends two rangers players off and everyone of the snivelling little fucks spends all afternoon highlighting every foul in every other Premiership game going “well of that was a red card, why isn’t this?” Etc etc ad nauseam.  John Robertson a particularly nauseating toadying little welt. Used to think he was okay.

There was a spell initially where Derek Ferguson’s “I’ve saw him play a few times and he’s tooken to the system well” type patter was bearable because he was new and enthusiastic. He now just sounds like a stereotypical thick OF fan.  No one’s expecting perfect English, but he comes across as the village idiot.  

Allan Preston being too busy stuffing his fat pus to respond to a query on how the game was going midway through the first half was probably one of his better moments of punditry.

The female pundit, was it Ali Defoy(?) saying a ‘shot there from number 21’ and being unaware that it gets windy at Gayfield were also stand out moments.

 

Otherwise, thoroughly enjoyed it.
