    I don’t think they’d sue anyone. They may end up having to answer questions they have previously refused to.

    Can't at the moment. Going without is making me realise why OLM is always grumpy.

    [QUOTE="Sir Cheshire Ben, post: 11897231, member: 10257 ****ed off

    Brady is how I’d be if it were the Jocks. Some others are embarrassing.[/QUOTE]

    Back home today after a week in Scotland with the guys who I ride with, watched this game at the Macdonald Hotel in Kinlochleven - the piss taking from one local when Colombia scored and when Henderson missed his pen was getting a bit harsh; once we'd won my mate jumped on and danced him round in a bear-hug, thanking him for wearing his lucky Scotland shirt for the match, let him go and then did the same again. Fair play to the guy, he took it good spirit and to cap it all off at the end of the night he bought my mate a large malt and shook his hand ....... top man! On a different note, the view from this bar must be the best in the UK.

    During the 2002 WC we were watching the early KO games in a conference room. When we played Brazil a lone Jock who worked closely with us in our team stood up, cheered & shouted “get in”. ****.

    A couple of years later he & I used to share a car to 5a sides in Stockport. One night it was his turn to drive but he refused to let my lad’s 8 year old mate in his car because he had a Celtic shirt on, I drove. ****.

    On the way back the old bill had pulled a car in the A34 near Handforth Dean. I pulled up at the roundabout, lowered my window & in the broadest Jock voice I could muster bellowed “Ya pair a dirty pigs, why don’t ya **** off ya ****s” Obviously I continued to look forward & didn’t look there way. Although my Jock colleague did.

    I then drive off slowly & steadily whilst he asked me what that was all about. I reverted back to my natural voice explaining that it wouldn’t be me they’d be carting off if they catch us up & if he acted like a **** to my lad or his mate again it’d be worse than the plod. The lads in the back were pissing their pants.

    Unfortunately they never caught us up but on a bright note he didn’t turn up to play for us again.

    He came to me, as his Employee Rep around July time 2007 asking about a job he’d been offered & rumours going around about redundancies. I advised him to take it, which he did. He left at the end of August just two weeks before 350 redundancies were announced. Obviously I had to maintain confidentiality of the situation when he asked me about the job. 175% Redundancy package along with a minimum £5k retraining budget - ouch. Jock ****.

    They're all bitter ****s, chips on their shoulders & all possess a massive inferiority complex.

    Some lovely places to visit up there though, far too good for the clans.

    Last two lines are eerily close to my own thoughts ...

    I'm so glad I found this on twitter, I've watched it dozens of times on iplayer.

    It's the best thing I've watched during this World Cup. Makes me well up every single time.



    The use of the appropriately named England by The National is just perfect.
