Aye it’s been good, think people will just put it down due to who’s involved.

It would be much better in a half hour format, they don't have enough to fill an hour show.

Cut the stuff with the guy as a mascot and the stuff where they play wee games as that is terrible. Keep the informative chat about non OF teams and the player interview.

Had a chat with a Celtic fan tonight who says they need to have a revolving arm chair with a guest each week from either Celtic, Rangers or Aberdeen. Monty Chuckle

As said already it's good that it's not OF orientated like other scottish football shows but the patters a bit forced.

Bring back offside imo.

I think these shows are pish now because you can't make any jokes that might be seem as sexist, homophobic, racist etc etc.

Offside would have been shut down after one episode if it was on these days.

It’s not bad at all. Just can’t be bothered with so many bits like ‘which SPL player would play your favourite Sopranos character’ and the likes Monty But

I see how that could work on a podcast tbf.

I'm sure he meant good-oled light-hearted racism. Monty Ha Partridge miffed at getting rekt by Lewis on the McCann doc lashing out. Monty Oh Well

It’s not too bad.

As said elsewhere, it’s at least 15 minutes too long. Some of the chat is decent, and obviously the variety of clubs discussed works in its favour. Can’t say I enjoy the hosts patter - how many cutaways do they have to one of them chuckling away when nothing funny has been said? Laugh

It’s improved in the last couple of weeks - considering there was a segment early on where they padded it out with a guy eating a burger in silence for a minute, the improvement is welcome. 

It could be better and shorter, but it’s nice to see a Scottish football show, especially one not Old Firm-centric.

Thought it as pretty good this week. The coverage of the Arbroath game was great. You won't get that anywhere else on Scottish football. There is definitely a market for this kind of thing if they tighten it up.

I think you've put your finger on what has been irritating me about it a bit. Feels so smug when they do that Laugh

Last nights was one of the best ones so far. I think if it continues this way, it’ll be all good. Much better than watching something that solely talks about the Old Firm all the time.

Actually starting to warm to the presenters too, which I didn’t really expect.

As Alan states, the Arbroath segment was top notch. They must have had to use a few cameras mind. I also enjoyed the 'No Ball Games' ode/lament. Not so keen on the chat - suggestion box: keep to a minimum! Need to interview someone each week about their career with wee coaching insights, etc. Otherwise it's got potential. That's my take based on latest episode.

That segment of them covering Airdrie's dressing room was great Quite Good

Ian Murray is thick as fuck. Not a single insightful comment said in his team talk, just cliches Laugh

Those segments are really good. Quite enjoy the Duncan’s going around the grounds as well.

The shite from the couch, though Monty LewLew

They are getting really grating. The fake punching bag routine with Joel Sked has never been funny, and they do it about 5 times an episode.
