Switched it over to the England game, the main commentator mentioned we'd let in a goal in the 88th minute..............

The co-commentator said something like  "I'd like to say I was disappointed, but I'm not". 

I'm not into any anti=English shite but I'd happily boot him right in the baws.

Austria miss a sitter to equalise, yip, in the 88th minute.

I almost dribbled. 

THAT would have been Karma.

Hopefully we’ll get the last laugh when we play them ....

He definitely deserves a good boot tae the bawz !

So, 2-2, I'd have probably taken that before the game.

Scoring 2 goals against a decent team is encouraging.

I'm just slightly disappointed we sat back and I bet the media will see it as a morale victory, not for me, a chance gone to really boost the confidence.

Luxembourg next up on Sunday.

Not sure we need another game, a fine balance between keeping match fit and potential injuries and losing some energy.

Saying that, if we win 3-0 I'll retract this shite. :lol:

Great move, just off target from Turnbull.

The co-commentator, no sure who he is, talking about seeing the game out with over 20 mins to go....................:1eye

It's a friendly, and WAY too early to be sitting back.

He's a diddy. 

I hope you weren’t watching on Sky!!!!.

Calling Faddy a diddy is tantamount to treason 🤣

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.

Watched the highlights last night, the first goal was a great example of what can happen when you pressure a team, especially high up the pitch.

The 2nd goal, the more you see it, was a great move/goal. :happyclapper

Reminded me a wee bit of Thompsons goal against Rangers at Ibrox, sweeping move and a strikers positioning/finish. :notworthy

I can see us beating Luxembourg about 15-0 on Sunday.  :rolleyes:

The decision to make the "fan zone" in Trafalgar Square solely for "key workers" when Scotland play England is asking for trouble.

This will have no effect, IMO, on reducing the number of fans who will travel, only increasing the possibility of trouble.

Where, exactly, the thousands will go is anyone's guess. 

The combination of the last time we qualified combined with the desire to beat the "auld enemy" and the reduced tickets available will see London swamped with supporters, with nowhere, officially, to go.

I see trouble ahead. :(

All six players left out last night are to resume training with the full squad.

Last night's result is even better when 4 of the 6, IMO, would have been playing and will probably be in the starting line up against the Czech's.  :happyclapper

As Clarke has said, gives him a nice headache after the performance last night.

Aye. Unfortunately some of us had the pleasure of being there. 😩

From the highs of Hampden to the depths of despair in Amsterdam in a matter of days. Feckin nightmare. 

The only times I felt worse at a Scotland game was probably going out on goal difference in 1978 & 1982, losing to Costa Rica & Brazil in 1990, beating Switzerland in 1996 but going out on goal difference, Morocco in 1998, England in 1999. Ach feck it. There have been loads of lows. We are overdue some change in fortune.

Let’s do a Greece!

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!!

Slightly off topic but about the Euros squad, hopefully one of you can help. Given that vaccinations are now getting to younger people, they are more readily available, why was the Scotland squad, families, back roof staff and even fringe players not vaccinated a month ago. Appreciate not 100% full proof but would certainly have reduced the risk. Even with life in a bubble, this might have helped.  

 

Hopefuly Jason Leitch quietly organised it for the boys.

Don’t want a big antivax debate, just trying to be practical and look after the lads. 1 case and 5-6 not travelling to Holland game, concerns me

This article was from 12th April.

I don't see how they could have made this happen as the squad was only announced recently.

UEFA are set to order Scotland's players and staff to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 as part of their Euro 2020 plans following discussions with their health advisors.

And they now want to ensure all 600 players at the tournament will have to have the vaccine before the tournament starts to ensure no team is weakened during the tournament by a virus outbreak.

Because medically there would be no justification for rushing it through.

We still have some vulnerable people to sort out wth 2nd jags.

Footballers are, and should be, well down the list of priorities.

In addition, after a year of football, the number of outbreaks at clubs has been miniscule so clearly there's not much wrong with how clubs are doing things.

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. 

FT Italy 4 Czech Rep 5 😳
