    I liked the piss take of the long haired historian gadgie. The Shabba Spazmo skit was spot on.

    Csaba Lazlo was really funny. I was decked with laughter at that one.

    Anyone got a clip? I missed the start & came in when it was the Barry Ferguson/Allan McGregor scene
    There's one way to find out if a man is honest - ask him. If he says, "Yes," you know he is a crook.

    Hows it pish though, its just light hearted piss taking of the Old Firm mostly. I chuckled at a few of them, so for me it was better than the other pish the had on the box.

    That's the thing. The show comes over as tired and hackneyed (which is it) but there is still a pretty rich seam of humour to be mined from Scottish football I reckon. Only An Excuse needs new blood and new ideas badly, it's a shame to see how it's deteriorated from what was originally a good idea.

    I agree- the "hilarious" Frank "whaursaburdz" McAvennie sketch gets churned out year after year and it wasnt even that funny the first time round. It's even sadder considering he hasn't even been involved in the game in any way for over 10 years!

    It's stale, and like you say Stu, needs new blood and ideas.

    The original radio/tape versions were superb. Jonathan Watson is ok in small doses, but he really needs either Tony Roper back with him or some new script ideas.

    when it was funny

    Edit: Go on to this site http://www.pieandbovril.com/ scroll down to the jukebox/podcaster. Then scroll down to after Loch Lomond. Only an Excuse when it was funny. Seemingly 4 hours worth.
    Well said Andy. Your column today was a rare nugget of sweetcorn in that very toly known as your opinion. Seven Tattoos[/B]

    I thought it was slightly better than the last few years (at least I managed to see it out this time). Was maybe just because I had some company watching it in Scotland and entered into the spirit a bit more. But that's not saying much to be honest. The scripts are generally pretty woeful and it's long run it's course in my opinion. If the writers and actors weren't already so well established, I don't think the scripts would stand a chance of making our TV screens. This is part of the problem with Hogmanay (tv) in general in my opinion. People want to watch something they are familiar with to go with the same old routines, traditions and loads of bevvy. New year is probably not the time when people want to be chalenged by groundbreaking comedy although in all fairness some old repeats of Scotch and Wry might go down better. In saying that, I also feel they were going downhill and becoming too predictable towards the end with the same old characters being reeled out year after year.

    Only an excuse has been crap for a few years now. Used to be good, but its had its day.

    Agree mate, seems to be past it's sell-by date. Used to laugh at it from start to finnish - now only occasional laugh here and there. The Riorden sketch was predictable and the impersonation of Yogi was atrocious
