Going to be a long night for Sweden, surely they can't hold out under this pressure for the whole game?

Bet 365 saying 85% possession. :lol:

0-0 anyone? 

Watched bits of the 2nd half, never seen 0-0, fitba can be weird at times.

In the cold light of day yesterday wasn't as bad as made out, especially by the natives over on Facebook.

For a start we really missed Tierney, he gives us so much, especially when we are going forward and the early issues with him and Robertson had sorted themselves out giving us as good a left side as most teams.

We could have scored at least one from 2 or 3 decent chances, not the ludicrous 4 or 5 that the simpleton @oaksoft was blabbing about. :1eye

Robertsons chance was a sore one, they did their best to score an OG, good save from their goalie and hitting the bar, on another day we'd have got at least 1 from these chances, it's stretching things to say we'd have scored ALL of these chances, real football is rarely like that. 

Clarke changed things straight away at half time, Adams coming on did help.

The criticism he gets isn't a surprise, some football supporters have the memory of a goldfish.

Their second goal, ouch, it's really hard to blame Hendry, our goalie, who, otherwise, had a good game, really was at fault, not forgetting a wonder strike.

The Czechs played well at times and in Schick they have a top class striker.

There will be a few changes for THE game with England.

If we play well we can get something from this game.

We need at least a point IMO or confidence will be all but gone for the last game. 

ETA Wrong thread, doh!

Agree with pretty much all of that. Only thing I’d add on a more critical basis, is that I really do feel like some of our supposedly bigger players shat it yesterday. Occasion appeared to be too much for some.

One other small but very important point that seems to be getting lost in all the depression, is just how brilliant Robertson was yesterday. He really did prove yesterday that he probably is our only genuinely top class player (Tierney aside).

Agree, overall, on Robertson, sitter apart. 

As I mentioned him and Tierney were all over the place initially but have sorted that out and the combination makes them a massive part of our team.

Let's hope Tierney is back for Friday, again, we need at least a point IMO.

I’ve never really got the ignore function. If you don’t like someone’s output, don’t read it. Skim as oor Shull used to say. I’ve been on both this forum and the Tartan Army Message Board since their inception and never used the ignore function once. I’ve ignored plenty of posts tho!!

Hungry 0-1 Portugal, 84 mins.

Hungry, in the bits I've seen, had been holding out quite well and had their moments up front.

Hungry 0-2 Portugal, penalty, Ronaldo, 86 mins. 

105 international goals in 170odd games, no bad.

The World Cup in Argentina hit me hard as well, shattered my whole life for days.

Peru then Iran just sucked the life out of me, even wee Archies goal was a sticking plaster over my hurt.

I don't take any solace in any other teams misfortune, life's too short so, aye, you're as shallow as a puddle. :lol:

Spain 82 for me. Best ever squad and the sight of Miller and Hanson taking each other out

France 1-0 Germany, I only turned it over after 18 minutes, been quality football already and only 24 mins gone.

A OG for the French. 

Enjoying this. Always think France look as if they have another level they can go to.

Oh, another 2 points for faraway and "nill points" to the monster.
At the end of the 1st phase [mention=15909]Cookie Monster[/mention] 15-16 faraway. :thumbs2
Yeah, but as you never submitted all the results/forecasts before the start your points are null and void. Thems the rules.
