Some regular BwB contributors have received glowing praise from another correspondent for these pages, Rob Boag.
He led off with an article from October 9 last year.
“When reading Kenneth Brannan’s observations on the Scottish Junior Cup, an awareness came to me — and then left,” he opened.
“You know that sensation when a thought comes into your head, then takes off.
“Anything submitted by Kenneth Brannan grabs my attention.
“Kenneth’s articles are well thought out and well structured.
“The topic or subject is relevant and his conclusion is built on a foundation of common sense and mature decision-making.
“If I appear prejudiced towards Kenneth’s writing — it’s because I am.
“I knew Kenneth’s dad Jackie and his uncle Albert.
“We supped on a few shandies at the Burn Bar on Brook Street and in the Guthrie Street Railway Club.
“Both brothers were talented fitba players and great company.
“Reading anything from Kenneth reminds me of listening to Jackie Brannan and his astute observations on any topic, on any subject.
“I say to Kenneth — keep these letters flowing!”
Rob’s next victim for back-slapping treatment is that fierce champion of all things Lochee, Andy Walker.
He continued: “Reading Andy Walker’s brilliant piece about the Dundee Junior medal on November 6 last year, the thought came home to roost.
“If someone had never heard of BwB, or the Evening Telegraph, or even the city of Dundee, and started reading Andy Walker’s Junior medal article . . . the opening lines of Andy’s narrative would draw them into the story.
“Words and lines such as ‘oasis’, ‘looking into my own mind’, ‘cabal’ and ‘a few nursing homes empty right now’, were an entertaining opening gambit.
“Any reader from anywhere would be hooked, and the rest of the anecdote never faltered.
“It was a marvellous read.”
Rob revealed he is an avid reader of many newspapers, as he went on: “Through the internet, I subscribe to several North American and UK newspapers, and I haven’t come across anything that resembles BwB.
“I don’t know how long BwB has been in print, but, in the years I’ve been a fan, the level of quality and variation of content has remained consistent and enjoyable.
“After reading the recent contributions from Kenneth and Andy, and many other names I wish had been noted by me, the thought was that BwB is unique.
“It belongs to followers and contributors who have an ability and vision to encapsulate and define Dundee and Scotland’s sports history, sports topics and sports issues with such clarity and humour that it has created its very own BwB Premier League of journalists and journalism.”
