We're fortunate enough again to be receiving tickets for the game from Duncan Ferguson in Forfar. Duncan runs the local Ford showroom in town and it's my sister, Isla, that put us in touch with Duncan earlier in the adventure. I'm sure he's on the Committee at Arbroath FC, but I'll need to check that with my dad, and he has connections at all the clubs in Angus.
It's a mid-morning start then for us as we'll need to pop into the showroom to pick the tickets up before heading on to Brechin.
Tam & Stuart entertain us through the drive. Guests this week are; in the studio, Darren Jackson and some bloke from ESPN is on the phone. Topics of discussion this week include tomorrow's Scotland v Brazil game and the fact St. Johnstone now have to play both their home games against the Old Firm on a Tuesday night at 6pm.
Emma and I are trading in her current car and taking advantage of the family connection to buy a discounted new Ford. I've never bought a new car before and to be honest I've not even seen this new one. I let the Emma test drive it and I went with the Ford sales pitch from Isla.
If they do manage that I'll be asking my dad to work out a schedule for next season for all the European leagues and then we'll be off down the bookies.
We arrived at the ground about 2.15pm and after we're informed there is no parking at the ground we nip back up the way we came and find a side street to park on. Duncan said the tickets would be at the Players & Officials turnstile for us so we decided to wait in the car for a wee while before heading over.
