The Football Round Up – Chaos in Scottish football, chats about reconstruction and the FA Cup Third Round
Jack Donnelly is joined by Struan Garvie, Seán McGill and Cameron Wanstall to discuss what’s been a hectic weekend in Scottish football, while also chatting about the third round of the FA Cup.
This week’s Big Question considers which footballers would be best fit for television after Mark Wright turned out for Crawley on Saturday – shouts for Roy Keane having his own programme and Gary Mackay-Steven starring in a revival of Splash! make for some good chat.
There’s some extensive coverage of Scottish football from this weekend, with both Scottish Premiership and Scottish Cup action to discuss. The boys compare their picks for who finishes in sixth out of Dundee United, Kilmarnock, St. MIrren and St. Johnstone, before chatting about Livingston’s impressive form and Rangers’ lead-extending win over Aberdeen.
There’s PLENTY of chat about the news coming from Celtic today, which has confirmed that 13 first team players and both Neil Lennon and John Kennedy are having to self-isolate ahead of their match against Hibernian. There’s also a big chat about league reconstruction and wider appreciation for Highland League and Lowland League sides, following impressive showings from both Kelty Hearts and Bonnyrigg Rose in the Scottish Cup.
The boys also chat about whether or not full FA Cup weekends are any good, while also highlighting what makes the earlier rounds of the competition so exciting. There’s a bit of a Scottish focus as Billy Gilmour and Scott McTominay’s performances are highlighted because, if you didn’t know, Scotland are going to the Euros this summer!
Finally, the boys wrap up the biggest European news in Last Ditch Challenge, with Schalke actually winning a game of football, Cristiano Ronaldo becoming the joint-top goalscorer of all time and the title race in Italy remaining very interesting.
