    "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."

Sons of the Ralph

During their most successful period of the twentieth century, Dumbarton FC wore the following strip:


A replica can still be bought from The Old Fashioned Football Shirt Company, costs £37.99 and it looks like this:


BLFP reader Ferncake reports that high end retailer Jenners is selling the following item from their boutique at Loch Lomond Shores. Price? £115.00.


I suppose the price, when you consider the opportunity of marketing the prestigious trade mark of Ralph Lauren isn’t all that bad.

If you’re completely insane.

Or a Dumbarton supporter.

Or both.

  1. Or you could pay £30 for the current (similar) strip at DFC. And get a 10% discount with your Sonstrust membership!

  2. I intend hanging around Cameron House all this summer in the hope of shouting at someone, ‘Hey, bawbag is that a Dumbarton tap you’re wearin’ ?’

  3. Surely you have your logos in a twist?
    Isn’t that the Findus one?

  4. And these ‘logo’ companies seriously wonder why nobdy gives a second thought when buying the knock off variety. With prices like that they deserve to be ripped off, who was it that said “Ye reap what ye sow”?
