    "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."

Broken Hearts

A sad day for one of the country’s biggest fitba’ clubs but something that in all honesty has been coming for a long time

  1. What I can’t accept is those folks that say “You’ve got to feel sorry for the Hearts supporters”. As far as I can see the Jambo fans, just like their counterparts over Govan way, completely revelled in the fact that spending money that their club quite blatantly didn’t have bought them moderate “success”. (how ironic and fitting that one of their Scottish Cup victories was – only by a penalty shoot-out – over Gretna another club commiting a form of fraud on the rest of Scottish football). They are therefore reaping the harvest they have so joyfully sown and deserve not an iota of sympathy.
    It is only the ordinary staff, local small businesses and others who will be made unemployed who deserve our thoughts and solace. No whip round or cash pledges for them I guess.

    • I’ve never got the sympathy for the fans thing Madmac. I watched ruefully last week whilst the SPL did their takeover of the SFL. Well run community clubs like Annan could suffer to the tune of £20,000 a year whilst Les Gray reckons that his vanity project at Hamilton (full time football on gates of 1,000) will get a shot in the arm to the tune of £200,000 a year. The lessons are clear but they have not yet been learned.

    • Couldn’t agree more, Madmac. The fans of both relished any triumphs that the overspending yielded and sneered at clubs who tried to live within their means. Fuck them.

  2. Flats, flats, glorious flats.
