    Sky Sports commentator Ian Crocker joins Daniel Gray to talk Scotland, Serbia and Somerset Park. In the first part of a chat that oozes love for the Scottish game, Ian talks about his commentary career thus far, from the highs (co-commentating with Bobby Moore…) to the lows (Having “You’re just a fat Harry Potter” chanted at him…), and gives unique insight into broadcasting in the time of Covid. Then, Dan joins an emotional Ian again the morning after the Belgrade night before to ask him about commentating on Scotland’s incredible victory over Serbia, and what it means to an entire nation.

    Episode 53 - Interview: Danny Denholm

    East Fife’s former Arbroath and Forfar winger Danny Denholm chats to our own Daniel Gray. The Lower League Ramblings podcaster and BBC columnist talks about his fitness regime during lockdown, including avoidance of Coco Pops and dodging disposable barbecues on Leith Links. The two Dans discuss: the tiny delights of football from indirect free-kicks in the box to goalkeepers going forward for corners; life under Dick Campbell at Forfar and Arbroath; the joys of Cappielow, Somerset Park, Cliftonhill and elsewhere; being perturbed by a stuffed dog in Kirkcaldy; and supporter abuse online, and in the ground. Plus, all the key questions answered: do footballers ever tire of smashing a ball into an empty net? What do players gossip about when marking each other? And do team talks ever make players snigger like schoolchildren? Never read Nutmeg magazine? We have offers on back issues and subscriptions.
