The Official Scotland FC thread

Recommended Posts


Top two teams automatically qualify. So ideally for me, Belgium and Scotland take those slots.

I would expect it’s a straight battle between Belgium, Russia and Scotland for the two places. San Marino shouldn’t cause any problems for these three, but any points dropped against Cyprus and Kazakhstan could have huge implications.

The only thing "wrong" with Scottish international football is the lack of success.

The whining and hankering back to the good old days is a pointless exercise.

Things change, not always for the best, but change for lots of old farts isn't acceptable.

Qualifying for a major tournament, like any football team, will see the majority of moans disappear. 

For every old fart that doesn't like it there's a young person who loves it.  :byebye

Quite a number of players that have played for Scotland were not born in Scotland.

It's the same rules for every country, a bit of a nothing issue TBH and has been going on for years if you look at the names.

Another fairy tale, Scotland suffer more than other countries with players withdrawing from the squad...................................:lol:

Some recent examples for poor old England..........

Also, in other countries it's a real honour playing for your country, not so for Scotland........................:1eye

Sadly, the squad available to us at the moment is nothing short of a disgrace.

We lack quality in every department.We have no stand out players.

When watching Scotland in the past, it was TV on , a few beers and watching intently.

Now, tv & float about the hoose etc doing other things and glancing at the tv on the way past.

There is nothing enjoyable in recent years watching Scotland, that’s not likely to change scraping 1 goal wins over low ranking nations

Not overly fussed for watching Scotland these days

SCOTLAND ARE FÜCKING SHITE

 

3-0 DOWN TO A TEAM RANKED 117 BY FIFA

 

WE ARE PROBABLY OFFICIALLY THE WORST NATION IN EUROPE TODAY

HOW EMBARRASSING, AND THE TARTAN ARMY WILL STILL BE CHEERING

AND COMING ROUND THE ROAD GETTING FÚCKING STEAMING, THE TARTAN

ARMY WOULD TURN UP AT THE SCOTT ANTARTIC STATION FOR THE OPENING

OF A SHORTBREAD TIN

I cannot think of anything whatsoever that Alex Mcleish could say that would in any way

mitigate this awful performance today by scotland

St Mirren have a manager in charge for 25 league games & Saints are rooted to the bottom of the table

 

People make excuses for some managers and not others, but bottom of the table speaks for itself no matter who it is

No beef whatsoever with your view of the team, but your assessment of the Tartan Army is outdated, lazy and clearly lacking in any recent experience.

It’s a long time since the TA indulged in any such behaviour. But don’t let the truth get in the way of your mind numbingly boring patter.

They certainly don't turn up for the football its just an excuse for a holiday and a piss up

they would run 20 buses to wick sewerage works for the opening of a packet

if tunnocks carmel wafers, just cause its an excuse for a piss up we have long since

been shit at football and 30 guys wearing cu jimmy wigs does not change that.
