Scottish football gets a kicking from BBC Radio Scotland’s Off the Ball, presented by Stuart Cosgrove and Tam Cowan. The long-running irreverent programme is broadcast on Saturdays at lunch-time and there is a Sunday Supplement too, ensuring a weekend full of laughter. Get the best of both in this weekly podcast.

Scottish football is really bad right now but this show is the business. Nice one.
OTB is the jewel in Radio Scotland's crown, the best fitba show on the radio. A real fitba fans show. A half hour podcast sometimes isn't enough though!
Proof that Radio Scotland does listen
Off the Ball has been an intermittent podcast, generally filling in when the others have less to say. But when you could get it, what a joy. Now, it's joy unconfined as this petty, ill-informed stuff is available weekly, just when you need to get over the hurt of Saturday's results.
