They were looking for a suitable song for Livingston.

The Fast Food Song by Fast Food Rockers comes to mind.

Because McDonald's, KFC and Pizza Hut are all franchises too.

Tam Cowan remembers watching Inter fans throw this scooter off the top tier during their game against Atlanta whilst he was watching Scotland play Italy at the San Siro in the company of Lorenzo Amaruso. Memory is so fragile.

He handled it well I thought. Also think she showed a bit of lack of understanding of the situation. She's far from alone with that mind.

What’s she saying?

She reminded Cowan that his first ever public comment about her was about the colour of her lipstick rather than her world cup success.

Then, as soon as Leitch was mentioned, she elbowed her way into asking the first question, which was about women's football being stopped while pointing out that 80% of nurses are female.

Fair play to her, but her tone is a wee but confrontational - most guests on OtB tend to be a bit more laid back.

I saw her previously on AVFTT and she's an impressive and interesting character who obviously doesn't stand for any shit. I thought she asked a perfectly valid question, was given a reasonable response and she seemed to accept it with good grace.

Tense moment when Leitch said he'd just looked her up. 

I had to look her up as well. :unsure:

Aw superb. The Cowan one especially. That will have rattled him.

I would have thought there'd have been mention of Tam's sucking up to Rangers early on.

Unless you're all used to it by now..

For those looking Rose Reilly up, this is a superb article:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/football/2017/jul/17/rose-reilly-scottish-footballer-world-cup-italy-milan

I saw Ginny Clark tell the Rose Reilly story in a Scottish Book Week event at the Scottish Storytelling Centre.

Then Thomas Clark stood up and read a poem about her.

It was a brilliant night, and it felt like a great moment of recognition for her brilliant story.

Some career/life she's had, like.

I love that she won the Italian league and the French league in the same season. She played in one country on Saturday and one on Sunday.

As an aside. People seem to have taken he's interested in football because of his omnipresence on the show.

Has he ever said who he supports or how often he goes?

She implied having the woman’s football stopped was a sexist decision though which seemed unnecessary

Airdrie and I believe he goes regularly enough to be considered a genuine fan, although I stand to be corrected on that.
