    "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."

Laughing like a Drain

Thanks to Stu for this.


The Ben and Loch This Morning

What a privilege it is to pass this view on my way to work. No apologies for posting it yet again Click on the photo to enlarge.

Ben Lomond and Loch Lomond

Sons 3 Alloa 1

Funny old game the fitba’ Sons didn’t play nearly as well as they did on Saturday but got a 3-1 victory for their efforts.

Centre back Ben Gordon put the home side ahead with a header from a cross by trialist David Winters. After the break Sons maintained the pressure and young Allan Cook hit a peach of a free kick from about 20 yards to make it 2-0

Ross Clark's Penalty (from a phone from afar!)

Ross Clark soon made it three with a penalty which saw  Alloa defender Scott Walker  notch a second yellow card. From that point Alloa with ten men came back into the game and Sons suddenly lost their belief. The game became very scrappy and the Alloa consolation goal was such a stramash that the announcer couldn’t even give a scorer. I think it came off a Sons defender.

A bit scrappy and not that convincing but a win’s a win and it was done against the top side in the division.

Amongst the pre match chat was a comment from Sons fan Simon Barrow. “It would be no surprise if we won this 3-1 or lost it 4-1 – anybody can beat anybody in this league”
