The Motorhomers were discussing Lord Nelson. Francie posed a question;

He said that they play good fitba’ in patches, dae ye know whit I mean, Francie?’ asked Josie.

‘Aye, Josie, sure, Josie, that’s a good yin, Josie, they play good fitba’ in patches. Pure dead brilliant, Josie,’ laughed Francie.
