1.

We have? I actually assumed that was an area in which we were found wanting, at least in terms of global appeal. We do have a few, though. The likes of Gerry Rafferty, Paolo Nutini, and Rod Stewart are good examples. Which Scottish musicians do you like?

2.

Great fighter. Really came up the hard way, while Leonard was put on the path to stardom. Still, I don't think he was robbed in that fight. I thought Leonard won it, if I'm honest. Incredibly close fight, however.

3.

I'd say around 10%. I live in a decent area. It's nowhere near as bad as Glasgow or Larkhall.

Where did you stay when you were in Scotland?

I mean they have produced Big Country, Franz Ferdinand, Travis, Belle & Sebastian, Primal Scream, The Skids, Aztec Camera, Edwyn Collins, Del Amitri ( Don't come home too soon, class football song).

I still think Leonard was the bigger name and that got him over the line in that one.

Do you this ned rap sums them up perfectly?


On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

1. Yeah, we do have some good musical exports. One who doesn't get the recognition he deserves is Frankie Miller. His career was cut short.

And yeah, Don't Come Home Too Soon is ace. A very different type of football song.

And here's some classic Big Country.



That ned rap is brilliant. Did you live in Glasgow?

No, only visited Glasgow never lived there.

Re: In the Scotlight - Clydey

1. Are you a fan of Gary "Dangerman" Daniels? I can recommend "Recoil":


2. How you rate this cast from 1-10? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1320253/

Re: In the Scotlight - Clydey

Scotland qualifying for the Worldcup and finishing as semifinalists or Murray winning your favourite Grandslam? Can't have both.

I rewatched Predator and liked it much better this time, definitely in my Arnold Schwarzenegger top 5. Where do you rank it?

Thank you for not reporting my post.

What's your favourite single malt? Is haggis one of your favourite dishes?
