    "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."

Who knew it was this easy?

After Bill Miller got a proper look at the books and realised that not even a wealthy towing magnate could pull Rangers out of their current mess, that desperate and incompetent irrepressible double act Duff and Phelps are back.

They have three, no make that four new bids for the car apparently. Singapore businessman Bill Ng says that his phone had “over 30 missed calls from Glasgow” and that he was now being offered the club for half his original bid.

I was struck though by this headline in the Scotsman:

Surely if this particular criterion was known earlier there would have been many more bidders?

Some Rangers ties yesterday

For a resume of the story so far clicky

Well Done the Sons!

What more is there to say? Dumbarton go in to the second leg of the first division play off against Arbroath with a 2-1 advantage.

They have done tremendously well getting this far considering their position in January when there was almost a resignation that the club would be in the “other” play offs and there were murmurings about sacking the manager/board/pie sellers etc.

So whatever Saturday’s result at Arbroath well done everyone at Dumbarton for a fine end to the season.
