They say it isn’t over until the fat lady sings but somewhat worryingly, last night the ‘ghost’ of Hattie Jacques was spotted in the reception area of Hampden Park warbling ‘When Irish eyes are smiling.’ So who are we gonna call? Well right now I’d take a midfield of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver. As sore ones go, the game in Tbilisi is right up there with the time I put my willie in the toaster – metaphorically speaking.A few of the Epistles Apostles chose to watch the game in that Glasgow pub called ‘Walkabout’ but unfortunately we didn’t see Jenny Agutter or a single Scotland shot on target – two big disappointments in the one evening.

As the song goes however ‘We’ll support you evermore’ and so right now we all have to hold our nerve and do our damnest to beat the World Champions on Monday evening. With Scotland anything is possible….

Incidently, maybe it’s just the medication kicking in but I think the spook in the Ghostbusters poster looks like Bastian Schweinsteiger.
