    "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."

It’s a Murraycle

To say that Ian Murray has done well since coming in as Dumbarton boss would be to understate the case.

At Christmas the team was struggling with a total of five points from 13 games.

In the six games since, the Sons have won five, their only defeat coming against a Dunfermline side who scored their only goal in the first minute.

I hear that Murray has changed the training regime and requires the players to stick to a certain diet. The players are weighed and have targets.

Whatever, it would seem that Murray has got essentially the same dispirited group of players playing with new belief in themselves.

He was on telly last night and you can see and hear him by clicking here and going to fiteen minutes in.

  1. Yes, he has certainly rumml’d things up at The Rock and no mistake. Pasta lunches, ice baths (a room in Dumbuck Hotel would have had the same effect) and the hiring of a Sports Scientist have all been part of his novel approach.

    No matter what league defragmentation eventually brings, if he was to steer Sons to 8th place that would represent a colossal achievement. Apparently when he was at Norwich City he constructed a model of the cathedral there from cocktail sticks, so no end to his talents.
