    "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."

Well Done Spain

I only saw Spain play three full games in UEFA 2008. The first was a rather frustrating affair as they edged past Italy in the quarter finals. The other night they beat Russia comprehensively in the semis and tonight in the final the 1-0 victory scoreline against Germany doesn’t tell the story of the Spanish domination of the game. They were worthy winners of the competition.

Motty didn’t even mention England or 1966 once, although there was a scary moment when Franz Beckenbauer’s name came up. And of course the goal was credited to Torres “of Liverpool”

Footnote: I note from the commentary tonight that tonight’s victory for Spain comes 44 years after their last trophy. As Motty might say – “Could this be an omen for England?”
