Episode 83 - Glory Days of Gold (Long Road Out Of Hell)

July 7, 2022

Welcome to Episode 83 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast recorded across two continents.

It feels like no time since the last season wrapped up, but we're just a couple of days away from East Fife's 2022/23 season getting underway in League Cup action. It's been a close season of turnover down Bayview way, with nearly 20 players moving on and just a quarter of that number coming in.

Is East Fife's squad strong enough and deep enough to earn an immediate return to League 1? Where do they still need to strengthen and do they have the money and the lure to do so? What should fans realistic expectations be for the season ahead? How are things looking off the pitch?

Michael, Lee, Doug, and Gordon delve into all of that and more, plus give their early predictions as to how they see Scottish League 2 playing out.

Welcome to Episode 82 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast recorded across two continents.

We're back with our first podcast of the close season. We promised you some more of our player interviews and we kick things off with a 1990's Bayview legend - Dickie Gibb.

Dickie chats to us about his long career, the good times and bad times at Bayview, winning promotion under Stevie Archibald, the relegation season that followed, the characters at the club, winning two Scottish Junior Cups after leaving the black and gold, and much more. There's lots of fun stories along the way, like how many jerseys did he get after the Scottish Cup game at Ibrox in 1997 and how?!

Michael and Lee also look at East Fife's quiet build to the new season in terms of player signings and chat about the ticket prices for next season's League Two campaign.

Welcome to Episode 81 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast recorded across two continents.

The 2021/22 season is over, for East Fife at least, and I think we can all be thankful for that. This episode is our official end of season show, although it feels like we could have picked any episode for the last six months or so to have it!

We look back at how the campaign fizzled out, hand out our second annual awards, discuss the club's list of announced departures, and try and be positive for next season. Things need to change, but will they?

Welcome to Episode 80 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast recorded across two continents.

It finally happened and the only real surprise is that we held on for so long. East Fife are officially relegated and Scottish League 2 is the new home for the black and gold. Will it be a fleeting visit or should we get ready for a long stay in the bottom flight?

Michael, Lee, Doug, and Aaron look over the loss to Falkirk that sealed their fate, the season that was, and look ahead to what the club need to do now to make sure we're not in with the also-rans of Scottish football for longer than we have to be.

Welcome to Episode 79 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast.

When the going got tough for East Fife these past few weeks, the tough could have got going, but instead the black and gold showed what they were really made of and crumbled liked a cheap custard cream in a hot cup of tea, with no goals and no points from three crucial, almost must win, matches.

The coffin has been prepared and the nails are now firmly in one hand of the Scottish League One undertaker and there's a hammer in the other. The guys delve into the latest loss to Airdrie, try and work out where it's all gone wrong this season, debate which of the current squad we actually want back for a League 2 campaign, and try and come up with some realistic signings we could try and bring in.

Welcome to Episode 78 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast recorded across two continents.

East Fife fell to a 3-0 defeat to Alloa in a crunch game at Bayview on Saturday, and with other results not going the Fifers way, it's looking bleak at the bottom of Scottish League One.

Michael, Doug, and Gordon are back to chat about the main talking points coming out of the match and where that leaves East Fife now in their quest for survival. Having been blanked in three of their last four games and taken just 10 of the last 39 points available to them, is it game over?

Plus we look at some of the other talking points around lower league Scottish football and chat World Cup qualifying.

Welcome to Episode 77 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast recorded across two continents.

As the League One relegation battle remains tight, there will be some key games when the end of the season comes that teams will look back on as being decisive to how their fate ended up. After last week's big win against Dumbarton, East Fife will be hoping that Saturday's loss at Clyde won't be one that they are left to rue.

A lack of fight, spark, and much in the way of an attacking threat, saw the Fife fall to a 2-0 defeat. While other results went their way and they didn't lose any ground in their battle to survival, the games are running out and they need to get back to winning ways immediately.

Michael, Lee, Doug, and Gordon are back to chat about the good, the bad, and the ugly talking points coming out of the game and where that leaves East Fife now in their quest for survival. Plus we look ahead to next weekend's big matches for the bottom three, chat about the successful event with Steve Archibald returning to Bayview last week, and play higher or lower!

Welcome to Episode 76 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast recorded across two continents.

East Fife are right back in it. Mid January, a 2-0 defeat at Dumbarton looked like it could have sealed their relegation fate. But one loss in the last seven, four clean sheets, and a 2-0 win over Dumbarton this weekend has seen the Fife close the gap on the Sons to just three points with seven games to go. Is the great escape on?

Michael, Lee, Doug, and Gordon are back to chat about the good, the bad, and the ugly talking points coming out of the game and where that leaves East Fife now in their quest for survival as we delve into the season run-in for those in the mix of going down.

Welcome to Episode 75 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast recorded across two continents.

East Fife picked up another point at the weekend, cutting the deficit to Dumbarton above them to just six points with eight games to go and the two teams meeting in a huge match at Bayview next weekend.

Michael, Doug, and Gordon are back to chat about the good, the bad, and the ugly talking points coming out of the black and gold's 0-0 draw up at Montrose and look ahead to that veritable six pointer next weekend.

Is the great escape on or will hopes be all but extinguished this time next week? Should Steve Crawford go for it and be aggressive against Dumbarton? And do we have the players to turn our scoring fortunes around as we head down the final stretch averaging less than a goal a game?

We talk about all of that and more, and chat about some of the other talking points around Scottish football this week.

Welcome to Episode 74 of Glory Days of Gold, the East Fife and Scottish football podcast recorded across two continents.

The unbeaten streak is over. East Fife fell to a 3-1 loss to Falkirk on Saturday but the Fife faithful left with their heads held high and proud of the lads after a fighting performance that deserved more than leaving empty handed.

Michael, Doug, and Gordon are back to chat about the good, the bad, and the ugly talking points coming out of the game and where that leaves East Fife now in their quest for survival.

Can the team get more wins in the final quarter of the season than they have in the first three? Should there be any additions before the loan transfer window closes? Is Ryan Wallace back to his best? All of this plus we talk football chants and cruffins.
