Rab was once detained at Medellin Airport in Columbia on suspicion of running a crisp cartel,smuggling prawn cocktail flavour Skips into neighbouring Bolivia.Only intervention by Bolivia president Hector Frisps saved his skin. It is suspected he may have been bribed with a box of salt and vinegar Discos.

Rab was born Roberto Vasquez GonsaleRamirez in The projects of South L.A. He soon became involved in the gang wars between the notorious Bloods and the Crisps.Bob became known as El Nino del Salto de Vinegaro (the little bag of salt and vinegar).He was soon earning a lucrative living smuggling quavers across the border into Mexico. He became unstuck in 79 when a routine stop by the Crisp Control Agency found him carrying 7 tons of Outer Spacers with a street value of six pounds and fifty pence destined for Columbia. Rab did six years in Folsom prison where he shared a cell with Johnny Cash and found God.

There I was standing at a bus stop about 1996 when I get a tap on the shoulder,I look round to see a young cheeky chap holding a guitar." Can I sing a song for you he says" .No problem young man I say, what is your name . Robert Thomson he replies,but you can call me The Dogs Bollocks, Ok T D B i said on you go ........ For the next 35 minutes The Dogs Bollocks proceeded to sing the first line of a song he had almost written,he couldn't remember the words after the opening line of "He's a 1920s bin man""..........He sang this until my ears were bleeding.........I eventually had no option but to throw myself under the approaching 46 bus.I sustained two broken ears and a phobia of bin men ........particularly the 1920s variety. ......But years later I have gotten over it ,except for the twitch. ....Roberts a top bloke and as fast as a greyhound after a vindaloo !!!!!!!!!!

Roberto Thomson the fastest man never to control a ball. He was like a rottweiller with a bar of soap.One of the fittest guys i have ever known ( i mean that in a football way )Figo could never be questioned on his bottle -- but his dress sense was another thing !!!!!

I remember the Day we were knocked out the Scottish in a home draw by a lowly lesser club,I just happened to mention on the way back to the changing rooms the fact if Boab would have taken just Two of his Fifty Four chances then we would still be in the cup.Seconds later the wee man runs by me still with the strip on and refused to speak to anybody.I think that was back in the Days when the wee man had issues.

Great to see Rab on the list. He had great turn of pace down that right wing. On as a striker but I think he was a better full back, simply because I remember he blazed the ball over the bar from 4 yards with an empty goal in front of him. I also though I had a photo of Rab, but it turned out to be John Craven from newsround.......
