Long time reader, first time poster......

A View From the Terrace has been my favourite TV programme for the last couple of years, leading me to subscribe to The Terrace podcast. I had listened to all the episodes of 'Tell Him He's Pele' before AVFTT came about.  AVFTT is a superb programme, a template which I reckon will be copied by other media firms (some of the short films are pure class) and the Last Minute Winners are excellent if they are about football (the Lambie McFarlands especially) instead of someone warbling a lazy cover.

Then I watched the episode (19th Feb) where Joel, Shaughan and Fowler (who I'd previously liked and respected) said they didn't care if players dive. I'd like to hope they had tongues firmly in cheeks but.... what the hell? It was like being told Santa doesn't exist. The way in which the likes of Pawlett are rightly seen as diving cheats in Scotland is for me the best thing about the Scottish game. Someone tell me they didn't mean it, please.....

Killing an Arab is what's going through my mind now.

The live version on the B side of "The Hanging Garden" is tremendous.

He also got Mamma Mia in there as well.

Anyone else notice during the LMW that the singer said it was a "Perth Folk Song" before they covered Feels Like Heaven by The Cure? Or did I mishear it?

Not sure what that's got to do with Monopoly, but yes he did which was also stated in superkillieaway's quote which  is emboldened within the body of my post.

Really good episode. Danny Lennon was a great guest and I really enjoyed the feature on the card collector. I've got the Shuggy Edvaldson sticker in the 1978 Panini album with the terrible photo-shopping and was always amazed by it. Good to hear how they made it.

I never realised the Fiction Factory were from Perth - the song at the end covering it educated me on that.

FWIW, a (then student) friend of mine 'got off' with a vastly older band member from Fiction Factory, in a manner that possibly inspired the IT Crowd episode in which Jen goes out with the guy just because he's in a band.   

It became (and still is) a running joke with us, and that unmistakable four note opening to Feels Like Heaven was ideal for dropping into playlists, ring tones etc to wind her up when we stayed together.  Had a wee chuckle to myself as soon as it kicked off  LMW.

Raised a chuckle and quite funny hearing Danny Lennon speak about missing the cup final after being crocked by “a wee boy from Linlithgow”. 

The wee boy in question was my cousin’s best mate, ex Raith youngster and ex Linlithgow Rose player Mark Quinn. Back at the time he was getting loads of stick because he was a Celtic fan but was also proper sheepish because he’d crocked his club’s star player before their big game.

I follow a Scottish Premiership players Twitter account that’s going through all the players to have played in the SPL/premiership since 1998. Some of the players, especially from Hamilton, I have no recollection of at all. It would be quite a good feature if they all had to guess if players are real or not or something like that.

I follow that too just to try and remember who County signed in their terrible summer transfer windows, and then who they signed to correct it in their January transfer windows.  I genuinely can not remember anything about some.

I believe that's @craigkillie's doing.

They've done something like that on the podcast before where its something like is x player from Albion Rovers or the Rovers Return?

Fair enough. I’ve been listening to less and less podcasts over the winter since my walking time has reduced.

Aye, have they not done a similar one for Queen's Park players or band frontmen? The curveball being James Allan who both player for QP and is lead singer of Glasvegas.

That was me - the quiz was "Queen's Park or King Tut's" - everyone on the list had either played for Queen's Park or performed at King Tut's. This was a spin-off from Gary Cocker's long running "Academic or Academical", where it was either Hamilton players or academics at UK universities. I think there was a "Brechin City or River City" at one point too, and maybe at least one other?

If its not Eastenders or East End Park I'd suggest you're missing a trick.

Sevco or Serco -  has person x been some jobber or lackey during the banter years or some executive at Serco.

Celtic or Selleck - has person x played for Celtic or starred alongside 80's heartthrob Tom Selleck.

Partick Thistle or Plastic Whistle - has person x played for Partick Thistle or been a referee in Scotland.
