So, can we move onto this now?

What are we all thinking?

Are we all waiting with bated breath like wee rosy cheeked optimists?

Or are we collectively shiting our pants about the potential  impending abject humiliation?

Think I’m currently somewhere in the middle. 

I think I would die of liver failure if we replicated Denmarks European Championship win of 1992.

I dare say I would not be the only one. So I’m firmly in the camp of immense positivity. 

John McGinn is a better player than John Jensen who scored in that final against Germany and got a big move to Arsenal as a result. Maybe John will score the winning goal and land a mega bucks deal to Barcelona.

REMEMBER BANNOCKBURN 1314 Scotland flags will be redone to REMEMBER WEMBLEY 2021 YA BAS

I predict I will die on the Glorious 12th July 2021 which is a day after the final.

BELEIVE

A while back I was excited about it

Just now ? Not really thinking about it

Let’s see season end injury list I guess

We are capable of avoiding defeat in all group games, but not necessarily capable of winning them all

Hard to see where our goals will come from

I will be keeping an eye on other teams injury situation as last league games complete soon

My view is W1 D1 L1

4 points

3rd in group

That’s great emoji2.png however this is Scotland emoji2528.png we’ll probably do the unexpected

More likely we will do the expected……finish 3rd and go out on goal difference 😂

Can't wait, by the time it gets to kick off I always believe we can win..............................doesn't always last for the 90 mins right enough.

Already looked into getting away early for the first game, it seems it would be better if I invent a doctors/dentist appointment, I'd rather be honest and just ask for time off, it's only a half day.

The beauty of still “WFH”. 😃

Let’s not forget the impact that Lewis Morgan has had at Inter Miami where he was voted Most Valuable Player. Only Covid travel restrictions stopped him from being part of the Scotland squad during qualifying.

Imagine Lewis scoring the winner against the auld enemy at Wembley and doung this celebration to their fans.

As delightful as that would be, I fear it may be a fanciful thought.

I’d settle for both Gilmour and Gauld making the squad. Sadly I think that is almost as unlikely.

I think the problem is the MLS is still seen as a 'diddy' league and to an extent still is a bit although having watched some games last season anyway it certainly is getting better. The reputation and financial clout behind Beckham no doubt helps them attract the better players who's experience has probably helped Morgan.

Won't miss the middle two IMO. 

Agree on McBurnie, but whilst I won’t be wringing my hands in anguish at McLean’s exclusion, I think he’s always been a really handy option for us and has never let us down.

That said, if his absence leads to the inclusion of Gilmour or Gauld, I’ll be quite happy.

Gilmour's made it but Gauld hasn't....I'm not sure I wouldn't have found a space for Gauld at the exclusion of Fleck.

Ah just saw no Gauld. Disappointing but glad that Gilmour, Turnbull and Patterson have all been included. 
I’d have had Gauld ahead of Fleck but never mind. Otherwise happy with the squad.

Quite happy with that but would like to have seen Gauld in. Some players in there are just dead rubber IMO based on other talent/ recent performances, Christie & Taylor for example.

Will be interesting to see how they line-up. I hope Patterson gets the nod at right back with Gilmour & Turnbull given a shot as well in midfield, question is who misses out though?

Gilmour, while I think has potential, hasn't played nearly enough to merit a place, especially in front of Gauld who's played all season and chipped in with quite a few goals. 

As I said yesterday, there will always be a few "shocks" but I trust the manager.

Has Paterson ever played in the style Scotland play? Think the daily record picked this squad
