Number nine was an excellent effort, imo.

I remember texting another FFer from Ibrox after we'd won the league the league to find out how we'd got on with that campaign.

Top 10 was a great effort.

Seems a shame that we don't give the same effort to more important matters though.

No particular reason as such , I was not against the idea but just thought it to be a bit childish. I better also add that other lot trying to play catch up without a hope in hell of ever doing so was equally as childish.


Now, had it been for " Two Little Boys " by the Rolfmiester..............

I remember listening to the chart countdown on the Sunday and feeling really old as I got more and more frustrated with how nonsenseical the other pop tunes were.Think YNWA got to number 30 something while we scraped inside the top 10.
