    "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."

Steppin Out Queens!

I watched the Ramsdens Cup Final between Queen of the South and Partick Thistle at Livingston today on BBC Alba with the rather surreal bilingual commentary. The match itself, finishing in a 0-0 draw was a rather uninspiring affair but boy! Extra time and penalties provided excitement.

First we had this goal from Nicky Clark for Queens

Then this missed penalty by Thistle (for a foul that was probably outside the box) and a cracking fight. The unsuccessful penalty taker, Alan Muirhead was goaded by Queens captain Chris Higgins about the miss and dickhead Muirhead saw red for a head but. You don’t get stuff like this in the Champions League!

Thistle did equalise at the last gasp, taking the game to penalties. After penalties it was 4-4 and then sudden death saw deserved man of the match Queens keeper Lee Robinson make the decisive save which saw the cup go to Dumfries.

  1. And my heart is broken…..

  2. Ah! Kenny, I was thinking about you and all my other Jags fan friends. At chez bigrab we were supporting Thistle but I think Queens probably just deserved it in the end.

  3. We never turned up to be honest, and I worry now about how this will affect the rest of the season. Massive game against Morton on Wednesday, and with tiredness, injury and suspension, I fear the worst.
