    O flower of Scotland
    When will we see
    Your like again
    That fought and died for
    Your wee bit hill and glen
    And stood against him
    Proud Edward's army
    And sent him homeward
    Tae think again

    2.
    The hills are bare now
    And autumn leaves lie thick and still
    O'er land that is lost now
    Which those so dearly held
    And stood against him
    Proud Edward's army
    And sent him homeward
    Tae think again

    3.
    Those days are passed now
    And in the past they must remain
    But we can still rise now
    And be the nation again
    And stood against him
    Proud Edward's army
    And sent him homeward
    Tae think again



    come on andy murray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    do Scotland proud!!!!!!!
    what a match now beat the Fed!!!!!!!

    I think someone's been drinking :p




    Pity I missed the match, got home from work rather late. Gonna try to catch the final though, it could be quite interesting methinks.

    Technically he's both ;)

    But yeah, he'll only be referred to as British while winning, and Scottish while losing... and that's a little annoying. They should pick one and stick to it.

    Glad someone's celebrating. Now get back out to the pub. I know loads in Glasgow that'll still be open :p

    Fantastic result for our Andy. I don't mind him being referred to as British. Scottish first, British second. What bothers me is when people start referring to him as English. :rolleyes:

    It shocks me actually how many people in the UK don't like him, simply because he injects a bit of enthusiasm into a sport which is in desperate need of it.

    However, he did very well… Except… did he do that little bicep thingy again? Scottish or no, that's just nasty. :p

    Ah, Flower of Scotland, haven't sung that in a while.

    But yes, go on Andy.

    Think Chris Hoy will get the BBC Personality of the Year though - he's better at the interviews etc.

    Er, right, because crashing out of the Olympics in round 1 and winning 1 other thing all year are clearly better than winning 3 gold medals. Not.

    re: the British/Scottish thing in the press, it's talked about a lot but I've never seen an actual example. Links, anyone?

    You conveniently left out that Murray won the Qatar Open, beat Federer in the opening at Dubai and got to the quarter-finals, got to the quarter finals at Queen's, the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, the semi-finals in Toronto, and won the Cincinnati Masters.

    Now he is in his first grand slam final of a sport which has not had a grand slam British winner in 72 years. I think that is easily as big a deal as Chris Hoy's 3 gold medals.

    Good Job.

    It happened at Wimbledon several times. Once someone even called him English while he was winning :eek:

    Sorry what he is Scottish why do people say he is British when he wins but Scottish when he loses? It p***es me off big time.

    Huh? I am Scottish. In this case, I believe Scottish = British.

    At this stage of the game it is Chris Hoy however depending on tonights result and the end result of the F1 season it could be quite open between Hoy, Murray, Hamilton and Adlington

    OK, I'll give you that.

    So that would be a load of non-wins, then. Your point is?

    Come back to me when we have that winner, not just a potential winner or runner-up. :)

    This is something which I really, really don't understand. Patriotism in sport.

    Why would someone support a competitor based on their nationality alone? It's a totally alien concept to me. Why not support them based on their performance or other appeal rather than just what country they come from?

    This is why I can't understand people going to those ridiculous "Team GB wooo!!" parades after the Olympics. The competitors win the medals, not you.

    How? He doesn't actually have a personality. Seriously - he even pushes Gordon Brown into the 'Brit without personality' stakes.
