    All-round captain

    Andrew Slaven, JJ Bull and Laura Brannan are back for the final foray into Scottish football this season. 

    Dundee are promoted to the Premiership after relegating Kilmarnock in the play-off, with some garbage football on display. What next for Killie, with an entire squad possibly leaving this summer?

    Happier times for St Johnstone after they complete their cup double. The greatest achievement in Scottish football history?

    There’s a multitude of managers on the move – we’re worried about Micky Mellon’s horse. And Barry Ferguson leaves Kelty Hearts after earning them their first ever promotion to the SPFL.

    And Andrew, JJ and Laura pick their Premiership teams of the season. One representative allowed from all 12 clubs. What could possibly go wrong?

    Heedless buddy

    Heedless buddy

    Andrew Slaven, JJ Bull and Laura Brannan take in a jam-packed Scottish Cup weekend full of goals and green screen glitches.

    Celtic look set to appoint Eddie Howe as their new manager. The Athletic’s Peter Rutzler tells us about Howe’s last year at Bournemouth and whether he has the character to flourish in the Glasgow goldfish bowl.

    Aberdeen appoint former model and England striker coach Allan Russell. Will he have any strikers to coach in the summer at Pittodrie?

    Hamilton boss Brian Rice boils over regarding refereeing decisions. Plus we show some love to Defoe, Lafferty and Ryan Seacrest.

    Controlled on a D-pad

    Controlled on a D-pad

    Andrew Slaven, JJ Bull and Laura Brannan are back to review one of the best weekends Scottish football has produced this season.

    The Scottish Cup quarter-finals provided three penalty shootouts and a shock at Ibrox. Zander Clark writes his name into pub quiz questions forever, as part of the greatest St Johnstone team ever?

    Dundee United manager Micky Mellon joins us to discuss their 3-0 hammering of Aberdeen, which we’re calling the best Dundee United performance in years.

    St Mirren make it through to the last 4 after a six-goal thriller at Kilmarnock with some questionable goalkeeping and officiating.

    And Euan Booth Robertson tells us about Brechin’s big idea, which would spare them relegation from League Two.

    Suit on a bin

    Suit on a bin

    Andrew Slaven, JJ Bull and Laura Brannan talk the first matchday post-split, as the relegation battle heats up.

    Hearts are promoted from the Championship to the Premiership. But could Hamilton be going the other way? We take a deep dive into what’s gone wrong this season in South Lanarkshire.

    Meanwhile Rangers chase down an unbeaten league season and the best defensive record in British football history.

    Motherwell take a huge step towards safety, as Laura tells us about the trials and tribulations of a club worrying about relegation.

    Plus the Stephen Glass robot. And Andrew’s 5-a-side stormer.

    The wee girl in The Ring

    The wee girl in The Ring

    Andrew Slaven, JJ Bull and Laura Brannan discuss the real European elite, namely the last 16 of the Scottish Cup.

    Rangers prove that on their day, they’re better than Celtic, inspired by one of the players of the season in Steven Davis.

    Stephen Glass’s first game in charge of Aberdeen sees a change of style, centre-backs beyond the halfway line and a victory on penalties.

    Will Aberdeen soon be playing Cove Rangers in the nice derby? We check in on Cove as they aim for a 3rd straight promotion.

    Plus PPV, the Scumbag League and finding a new Jack.

    It's not promo material

    It's not promo material

    Andrew Slaven, JJ Bull and Laura Brannan are back, just as the Premiership is getting really good.

    It’s never over with Hamilton. The Accies and the Staggies both win as the bottom 3 are now separated by just 3 points.

    Rangers are 2 games away from an unbeaten league season as they hammer Celtic 4-1. What happened to Celtic this season and how big is the rebuild?

    We sing the praises of Devante Cole, one of the star performers of 2021. And St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson can afford to play the second string and still win.

    Plus which Premiership striker looks like the lead singer of Future Islands? And could Motherwell producer Laura Brannan get shown a yellow card on a matchday?
