  1. Probably doesn’t do any harm to be away from the immediate glare of the Scottish media
  2. Honestly not doing my usual jump to the defence of the SG, but (genuine question) do you know for sure that it was definitely an SG decision. If so, it’s made even stranger by the fact that UEFA are allowed to have a souvenir stall open, but the pie stall has to shut. What’s the difference?
  3. I planned to watch the game myself but ended up going out for something to eat. Although it can’t be denied that 3-1 against Albania is an ok result, I’ve heard from many sources (including our own Jimmy H) that the Czechs were far from impressive. Also a lot of folk saying that they looked incredibly vulnerable down the flanks defensively and had zero width in attack. The inference being that a better team than Albania would have exposed these frailties more. Let’s hope that’s true, but we all know I guess that the only thing that matters is what happens on the day. I’m definitely a lot more confident than I was before.
  4. Disagree mate. for a start I don’t think both Dykes and Adams will start. I also think Cooper will replace Gallagher and possibly Hendry will replace Hanley. I think one of Christie, Armstrong or Fraser will come in for either Adams or Dykes. Probably Adams. Il not saying that’s the team I want to start, but I think it’s the team Clarke will pick.
  5. I don’t think either team is our first team.
  6. Ha ha. I think we all know that Luxembourg are a different prospect these days and a much tougher nut to crack than they used to be. I’d settle for a clean sheet and at least a couple of goals.
  7. Watching Italy v Czech Rep on Sky. I know Italy are a decent side and I’ve no idea to what extent the Czechs have a full strength side, but (famous last words) I’ve seen nothing to fear. They’ve hardly had a kick. 4-0 Italy with 8 minutes to go.
  8. Ha Ha. Naw she’s still alive and kicking. In fact I’m pretty sure you’ve met her in the Court Bar.
  9. This record broke my heart. Reason? My 7 inch single was sitting up against the record player (mind those record players where you could stack about half a dozen singles at a time but the sound got more wonky the more they dropped). Anyway, my big sister “accidentally” stood on it and snapped in two. Ring a ding a ding, no more Willie on the wing 😩 Never forgave her for that.
  10. This one got a bit of a panning for being overly negative. Never understood that. I thought it was brilliant song and on the contrary was optimistic.
  11. Comfortably the best for me....
  12. Shame about Durmus. Would’ve liked him to stay. If Connolly re-signs I’ll be quite happy. But get JDH to f**k. Nowhere near good enough to be pissing us around for this long. I’m not even that convinced that I’d want him to stay.
  13. Not sure if he touched the ball 🤷‍♂️ He certainly didn’t get a single commentator mention after he came on.
  14. They could bloody do with one. Struggling 0-0 at HT.
  15. Jamie on the bench for Ireland.
  16. Imagine also the backlash from non football fans complaining about vaccine queue jumping.
  17. No. I got offered one but it was too late in the day and the travel expenses were going to be ridiculous. Also wasn’t sure what the atmosphere would be like so reluctantly turned it down.
  18. I think they should congregate at the top of Northumberland Avenue. Give a wee wave to the key workers in Traf Square. Then have a Paris style march down The Mall and take over Green Park. Then Jubilee line from Green Park to Wembley Park. Toffee!!
  19. Aye. Unfortunately some of us had the pleasure of being there. 😩
  20. Agree. Feel a wee bit disappointed but should probably see that as a good thing. I know it was only a daft friendly but a win would’ve put down a nice wee marker. Still, it was a decent showing with some good individual performances. I have to say something though. In the last few months, Christie might not have been at his best and first half in particular tonight he wasn’t particularly good, but by Christ has that boy got energy. Some of his tireless and selfless running towards the end of the game was incredible.
  21. I hope you weren’t watching on Sky!!!!. Calling Faddy a diddy is tantamount to treason 🤣
  22. And Findlayson starts for NI. Scotland gubbed. Thank Christ we’ve got a relatively young A squad.
  23. I see Ethan has got a start.
