    "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."

Champions League

Brown and Nani in action at Parkhead

I’ve hardly mentioned the Euro football this season as Scots involvement has been less than impressive. I only found out this morning (having retired early with the lurgy) that Celtic had drawn with Manchester United and only by conceding a late goal. Well done to them. The media doom mongers would have had us believe there was little point in the teams turning up, so forgone was the result.

Mark McGhee

Hugh Keevins

Having heard Mark McGhee’s comments pre-match on Radio Clyde, he has more football knowledge in his little finger than Hugh Keevins (doom monger in chief) will amass in a lifetime. How on earth McGhee was turned down for the Scotland job in preference to Burley I’ll never know.

The George Formby Grill!

The Dangers of Fireworks

I’ve actually posted this one before and I meant to re-post yesterday. Radio 2 newsreader John Marsh. Funnier than Ross and Brand combined.
