Wonderful atmosphere for the footie!!

George Square is alive with Sevilla fans this morning, singing and having a ball as they mill around ready for the match tonight. Unfortunately it's a bit wet and cool today so far, but yesterday, when lots of them arrived, was sunny and warm.

I hope they make their way to Cafe Andaluz , just adjacent to the Square - it's a good tapas place (well from a British perspective anyway!!) I wonder if they'll agree!! Last time I was there it was mainly Poles behind the bar!!

West FM was alerting everyone in Ayrshire this morning that 7 planeloads of Spanish footie fans were about to land at Prestwick airport and head to Glasgow. Bet it made the morning commute interesting, lol! They'll get a warm welcome in Glasgow, even if is raining:-)

It is now 11 am and the noise is deafening!!!

But yes they are having a great time by the sound of it..........what they are singing at the moment sounds a bit like "You'll never walk alone" - must be the Spanish equivalent!!!!

There's a band, stage and the full works, not conducive to serious work though....lol!! Spare a thought for all of us in offices roundabouts.........

But so far as tfhe match is concerned........As long as it isn't on mainstream telly I am happy.............;) Wouldn't want to miss The Apprentice.

The webcams in Georges Square don't seem to be working today - would love to see that crowd enjoying themselves. The live streaming cam from Buchanan Street shows a slightly more sedate scene:

Hi Susannah

Just been out for lunch, and its even busier, although I think a lot of folks are spilling out from George Sq to get a bite to eat.

Great atmosphere - just a shame its raining.

Even the busker on Buchanan St is singing in Spanish!

Don't know if he's visiting, or just an enterprising local....

He's quite good whoever he is.

Just nice to have a break from the bag-pipes, and the Bob Marley sound-a-like !!
