    "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."

Unintended Irony

There’s hardly a day gone by since February that the gates of Ibrox haven’t featured in the newspapers or TV.

However this one I spotted yesterday has a wee bit of unintended irony added.

I’m thinking of the sign bottom left.


And having followed the ongoing soap opera that has become Sevco 5088, Dumbarton supporters have been reflecting on the bullet we dodged having had John “Bomber” Brown in charge as manager for a mere 2o minutes before Clyde came in and offered him a wad more cash he decided he couldn’t take the job after all due to family circumstances.

I’m sure there is some explanation for Bomber assuming the demeanour of a psychotic fulminating social misfit who shouts at people on street corners, the other night.

Or maybe he’s just a psychotic fulminating social misfit who shouts at people on street corners.

  1. The foto captures his character well.

  2. Maybe this does too? Found when researching “obstruction” after a rules discussion during the Portugal v Spain match. Referees just don’t do body language any more, let alone big hair and apendages:

  3. The bottom picture is him leading off a lusty rendition of the ‘Bangers & Mash’.

  4. The first photo looks like Martin during a regular family discussion!
