    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Yes!

Well done to the Sons in reaching the play offs for promotion to SFL division one.

Get the calculators out!

The Sons go to Stirling today  knowing that a victory will confirm their place in the play offs for promotion to the first division. I can well remember a previous visit to Forthbank when, with Murdo McLeod as manager, Sons clinched promotion with a 2-0 victory there in 1994-95. I had a beer or two that night!

From Sons website here are the possible outcomes of today’s game with a thought spared for the Binos who are battling relegation to the third division.

Play-Off Scenario

If Sons WIN they will clinch a play-off place tomorrow whatever happens elsewhere.

If Sons DRAW then their play-off place will be confirmed if Stenhousemuir do not win at Arbroath. Because Airdrie United and East Fife are playing each other at New Broomfield, they will not both be able to overtake Sons.

If Sons LOSE , they can still seal a play-off place tomorrow. However, they need Stenny to lose at Arbroath and the Airdrie United v East Fife game not to end in a draw.
