Pacific Quay Musings?

After Saturdays game, Gordon interviewed Levein via a telephone line, during which, the Hearts manager basically held his hands up and admitted that his team had been deservedly beaten. IIRC, any moans he had were reserved for his own players.

Thank you.

 

Well done Craig Levein.

 

Again, why no Derek McInnes? Big Dick should explain.

Firstly, I had two guests at Bar'72 on Saturday, and thus heard next to nothing of BBC Scotland's coverage. I have a question to any Gersnetter that did tune in, did Richard Gordon interview Craig Levein post-match? As stated at the top of this thread, BBC Radio Scotland improved their coverage of games at Ibrox by telephoning the opposition managers for post match reaction. We heard the triumphalism in the voices of Tommy Wright, Martin Canning, and Neil Lennon. Owen Coyle utilised the opportunity to spout grievance. We did not hear Derek McInnes, was he contacted? If Levein was NOT interviewed, then there appears to be a correlation between opposition defeat and lack of interest at PQ. Did Craig trap?

 

Secondly, I heard most of yesterday's coverage of events at the Hill'o'Dung. I heard Richard Gordon state twice, "we will have full live coverage of all four Scottish Cup quarter-finals next weekend, from Saturday's lunchtime until Sunday afternoon". Now, full live coverage suggests they intend to provide commentary from Ibrox? He said it twice, half-an-hour apart.

 

Oh, and Dundee United are now forth in the Championship, and still no sign of Jum Spence. Finally, the PQ line on Neil Lennon appears to be, "Neil is a passionate man". Sportscene failed to show Lennon getting most profane in the face of referee, Kevin Clancy. Further, Chick Young claimed Lennon sarcastically clapped his hands in the face of the referee too, not shown either. I heard Richard Gordon, Pat Bonner, Chris McLaughlin, and Stephen Thomson all use the line, 'Neil is a passionate guy'. Tell that to the two women he has threatened in well documented cases.

Sportsound and Sportscene were in lock step RE Lennon, both trotting out the "passionate" trope and Sportscene completely omitted showing the footage of Lennon verbally abusing the referee.

In other words, the plea of mitigation from BBC Scotland.

At half time last night, the mood was mournful on BBC Radio PQ. The future must promise better; however, the light ahead appeared baleful. Big Dick had repeated the phrase, "Rangers are cruising this", but sparked a soupcon of optimism by following up with, "Rangers contain a number of loanees, a lot of work is required to maintain their current situation". Steven Thompson thinks we are currently favourite for second place, but there's no title race. Wullie Miller concluded, "if Rangers don't finish second, it's failure". Big Dick waded into the familiar, warm waters of budgets. Wullie tested the chlorine by letting go a long stream of pysh reference the Saints defensive frailties, "even the second goal, who's picking up Docherty, who stops Morelos picking him out, where are defensive midfielders matching Windass's run"? Thommo hampered by an EBT around his neck murmurs, "it was a cracking goal".

 

Big Dick finishes with, "Rangers have had three shots on target, three goals". Thus, Rangers are not that good, St Johnstone are truly awful. Some club should give the bankrupt Wullie a job in management.

 

Big Dick did NOT repeat his Sunday claim of bring full live coverage across all Scottish Cup quarter-finals this coming weekend. See, the future light is being dulled already.

Listened to the podcast and I'd add that Tommy Wright made a comment about the Kane booking just before HT. He said that it was a coming together and not worthy of a booking.

 

TV footage was conclusive that it was a petulant kick from Kane and by the letter of the law, should have been sent off.

 

No-one on the programme thought to challenge the Tommy Wright view of events.

 

 

Contrast this to BT Sport, where even Sutton said it was a red card.
