The following exchange occurred sometime between 1999 and 2002 or thereabouts, when the more than capable Antti Niemi, Finnish, kept goal for Hearts.
The topic on the phone- in table, as it were, was the continuing drouth of decent Scottish goalies leading one caller to interject with:
"Whit aboot Antti Niemi fuhr Scotland then?
The host off the show, bewilderment all too evident in his voice, replied:
"Er, but Antti Niemi is Finnish."
To which our brain of Gorgie Road replied in turn:
"Naw, he's no finished, he's turning oot fuhr The Herts every week."
We Scots invented the modern world you know.
