    "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."

Funny Old Game

In January 2011 I wrote here about Roy Hodgson being replaced by Kenny Dalglish as manager of Liverpool.

Yesterday Dalglish was sacked by Liverpool.

Today Roy Hodgson names his first England squad.

Aye. It’s a funny old game…….


Ian McMillan! Alex McDonald! Paul Jonquin! Section B! Jim Traynor! Can you hear me? Your boys took a hell of a beating!

A rather tricky second leg to come on the Airdrie plastic carpet but a thoroughly satisfying win last night.
