Kevin McDonald, incurred the wrath of his bosses at Burnley FC when he went for a pint and a half with his dad after being substituted at half time. Burnley lost the match 6-1 against Manchester City, poor Kevin lost £5000 in a fine imposed by his angry bosses.
Mr McDonald senior is reported to have said, "Kevin is still confused down here, they still can't understand what he says. If it wasn't for me, he wouldn't have anyone who understands him."
On learning that this author is a Dundonian born and bred, Kevin was over the moon.
"A real Dundonian at last, I can have a proper conversation" he smiled, "Playing for Dundee FC was great but they can't string a series of wins together"
Tell me about it Kevin, I've had 45 years of relegations, promotions, selling their best players and other assorted scandals.
"I thought the game was over" he said, "I lose all track of time, trying to listen to all the strange accents down here and I thought it was full time"
"I'd do anything for a pint of Tartan Special along the Perth Road in Dundee" he reminisced, "Watching the river from the pub and trying to avoid all the guys peeing in the beer garden. Those were the days"
Yes, I loved that part as well Kevin (sarcasm). Still it was good to see a smile on the poor guys face!
