Si’s interviews are the best that have been done to date.
They feel like you’re just listening to a chat down the pub with mates, so much better than the crap you get when journos do it and the players give the sanitised, prepared answers that are the same for every interview we’ve ever heard.
He asks the questions but let’s the interviewee just flow, all seems very natural and is what we, the fans, are after tbh.
The midweek review/preview is decent as well, far from serious and just a decent laugh but with some actual decent insight, sometimes anyway, haha!
Slaney is just too much but, lads, get Halliday in and patch Slaney.
Seems a shame, so give him a roving reporter job where he goes on the streets and asks random folk, random questions or does a wee segment about something.
An hour of him is honestly just too much but.
Keep up the good work, lads, yous are smashing it!
