“Tomorrow’s Front Page: Save Us Roberto, You Are Our Last Hope!”, he writes facebook page Our whistle is painted blue, like Mel Gibson, in the role of Scottish national hero William Wallace, announcing The National Newspaper photo. The image’s subtitle is even more hilarious and explains, in case no one understood, what is the real reason for the independent Scots’ sudden obsession for our national football team: “We couldn’t bear them” 55 years more “What they are proud of”. The reference is clearly to England’s victory in the 1966 World Cup, and to the Scots’ torment with the English arrogance for the winning cup.
