Welcome to Episode 27 of Glory Days of Gold.
Recorded across two continents, Glory Days of Gold brings you a regular dose of East Fife FC and Scottish football chat, with a splattering of interesting interviews, fun segments, and music thrown in along the way.
The good times didn’t last long as we’re back to talking about an East Fife defeat again, a disappointing 2-1 loss at ten man Peterhead. Doug Pirie and Gordon Henderson join us to pick over the bones of it all in the latest Fife Fanzone and we take a look at what’s next, what’s needed, and where the latest away loss leaves us in the standings.
Plus Lee and Michael take a look at Scotland’s qualifying path for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, chat about the campaign to remove heading from the game, look at the death of another footballing legend, Italy’s Paolo Rossi, and we delve into some of the best and worst football fare across Scotland.
