I could have lived happily without ever hearing a sea shanty. I’ve now heard the same one twice in the space of 5 minutes on a programme that’s supposedly about football.

Should have had Alestorm on, they've been singing shanties for years before this imposter

OK maybe "F*cked with an anchor" is a bit strong for midday radio but it would have been entertaining

Keelhauled is a stone cold classic.

Peterhead is (much) further away from a train station than Forfar is.

Where do they get this stuff? That's a really easy one to check. It's about a 15 minute bus ride from Montrose train station. Peterhead is a windy almost 1 hour bus ride from Aberdeen (about 35/40 minutes in a car).

All information on the show can be found in the Wee Red Book circa 1987

Cosgrove then piped up with a mention of Annan.  Unsurprisingly in a place the size of Annan, the railway station isn't far from the ground at all.

Tam Cowan later referred to the famous photos of Pele training at Troon Juniors' ground.  He said that Pele wasn't yet a superstar at the time, even though he'd already won 2 World Cups by then. 

They're just a pair of stupid auld blethers.   Neither is actually old enough for that to inspire affection.

Missed that bit about Annan! As you say, Annan has a station!

I bet Tam Cowan could go in depth about Rangers and Celtic over the years though...

I would have thought Peterhead might be closer to Inverurie or Huntly tbqhwy.

Inverurie definitely.

They've taken the ill-informed stuff to a new level with their topic on who should get the 12000 or so Hampden tickets for the Euros. These tickets were sold by UEFA a few years ago and the number of tickets available will depend on the number of those tickets returned but not likely to be many (if any) left for the SFA.

Could have sworn Avril was today's guest. Glad they addressed the matter...

I've been at Tynecastle and thought they had Levein doing the PA even when he wasn't manager. Thought he just couldn't tear himself away from the place.
