    Because Gascoigne's sickening goal was one of the best goals ever seen scored at a major tournament.
    Imagine if we had scored like that against England. I guarantee we would never stop going on about it. We were talking about Gemmill's goal when we played Netherlands last week.
    The pain of that Gascoigne goal will go with me to my grave. Especially after missing a penalty ourselves.

    Literally nobody is interested in this garbage between the pair of you Baz.
    Nobody.
    That's two entire threads you are both ruining with this shite.

    Wouldn't be unhappy to see Patterson in as well.
    Both of them add some excitement and we saw them cause utter panic in their defence last week.
    Both have also played at the top level in either the EPL or Europe so the idea that they lack experience is weak.
    We only get one chance. Chuck 'em in and let's see what happens.
    I suspect Clarke will go for McGregor and O'Donnell though.

    As much as I appreciate the effort you went to in digging out those stats, they played in midfield together against Krasnodar in the Champions League... Gilmour was excellent in that game despite the rest of the team playing poorly, and was awarded MOTM. Also watched their game against Sheffield United in the cup, again playing CM next to Kovacic, he was awarded MOTM in that game too. 
    5 MOTM awards at the top level this season was more than decent considering he didn't play regularly. Far better option than Callum "Pass Backwards" McGregor

    I'd play Gilmour from the start. Young, fearless, aggressive and potentially our star of the tournament. 
    Kovacic has looked average in comparison when I've seen them play together for Chelsea

    Raring to go for Monday. I will be watching with 12 or so Czech pals/colleagues, who are all well informed by me that we are going to do them. I'll probably have to lay-low for a while if we lose. 
    The Czechs have a bit of a ropey defence just now, which they seem to be blaming on the Kudela ban. Strange considering he is a 34yo with 9 caps. 
    As far as their top players are concerned, that would be Soucek and Coufal from West Ham Kral from S. Moscow, Schick from Leverkusen, Darida from Hertha Berlin. Not bad level of player, but when you compare them to our top guys (McTominay, Tierney, Robertson, Adams, Gilmour, McGinn) , I d say ours are better players, definitely playing for bigger clubs. 
    There is no doubt the Czechs are a tidy team, but I really think we'll win this.

    We'll not be finishing bottom of this group, I'm pretty sure of that.
    Don't expect us to lose any of these games.
    A win and 2 draws would be my prediction but quite honestly, we have a very good chance of winning all of these games with two of them being at home and fans being allowed in. The England game is a bit more tricky to call but I expect a draw there at least.
    There's so much excitement about qualifying but this could be a very special tournament for us. We have quality all over the pitch and in some depth too.
    We absolutely must start with Gilmour instead of McGregor IMO.

    She's also asking for furlough to be extended.
    Normally, I'm quite optimistic about things but I'm getting a horrible feeling that we won't see all restrictions removed until everyone is doubly vaccinated, winter is over, deaths and hospitalisations have gone to zero, cases have gone to zero and we've doubly vaccinated virtually everyone in every non-third world country.
    That will be next summer.
    August is really the deadline for double vaccinations. Beyond that we're into flu season and there's just no way she'll open up at a time like that.
    More than happy to be wrong about this but I do think we're looking at another year of this.

    If they were truly following the teachings they would be stoning unruly children and getting their slaves from the nations around them.

    One of the main problems with religion, especially Christianity, is that followers believe that they get their morals from their god/book but they really (mostly) act in a morally superior way to the teachings, showing that they are actually more moral than the thing they think they get their morals from. The nutters from the likes of the Westboro Baptist Church and the NIFB are actually following the teachings closer than most "mainstream" Christians.

    I think the main point is that it doesn't take religion/faith/teaching for people to help others, it takes compasion and that is a human trait, not the sole preserve of people of religion/faith.

    If it's not to challenge for a place in Europe plus at least one Cup semi-final then I'll be very surprised and disappointed.
    Going to be a great season. Can't wait for it to start. Hopefully some of you whippersnappers will be able in to see games as well.

    It doesn't matter who scores the goals.
    A player needs to be either scoring or creating for others to score.
    As long as someone is putting them away I couldn't care less whose name gets on the sheet.

    So, expecting a striker to score a few goals is dated.... FFS 😂
    The reason Brophy ended up at St Mirren and not someone bigger is because those bigger clubs also have dated views on what a striker should contribute 🤡

    Wrong one.
    It's a bit of a non-comparison anyway. Thomson was a central mid, Main is a centre forward.
