Well, mixed on that performance TBH.

When they went down to ten we really should have scored more goals.

Our build up play was reasonable, great crosses but missed chances could bite us in the arse come next Monday.

A win's a win, not to be sniffed at but concerned at the poor attempts on goal. 

Roll on the first game, it's great to be in the tournament, do we NEED a win first game, no but would set us up nicely.

Lol, 1-0 against ten men. Nothing up front, rather pathetic and that’s without seeing any of the game. Ought to qualify from the group but of course, won’t. Also heard some fans are being told to turn up hours before kick off. What a nerve. 

Another copy and paste post.

You don't see hardly ANY games yet feel the need to post your dour drivel. :lol:

Ought to qualify? 

You don't know much about football do you? :1eye

What a life. :hammer

I know.

Ok, since you seen confuddled why Clarke has BT on his tracksuit when the games are on Sky let me explain.................

BT, which we've established, are THE main sponsor of the Scotland football team are not BT Sport.

I do hope this helps. :rolleyes:

Today's team will be the starting 11, unless anything happens behind the scene, next Monday IMO.

The good thing is we have a decent bench, not said that for a few years. 

Disagree mate. 
for a start I don’t think both Dykes and Adams will start.

I also think Cooper will replace Gallagher and possibly Hendry will replace Hanley.

I think one of Christie, Armstrong or Fraser will come in for either Adams or Dykes. Probably Adams.

Il not saying that’s the team I want to start, but I think it’s the team Clarke will pick.

The media, quite rightly, are really going to town on us qualifying with all sorts of piss poor programmes on TV.

I don't buy/read newspapers but I assume they will have be similar.

At the same time I am genuinely excited, although I usually look forward to a major tournament, at our involvement.

By the time next Monday comes round I'll be really up for it.

C'mon Scotland.

I see the Czechs beat Albania 3-1 last night, decent enough result TBH.

Been having a wee look at the results/form (aye, tell @oaksoft it matters) of Croatia.

Out of the last 5 they have won 2 (Malta & Cyprus) Drawn 1 (Armenia) and lost 2 (Slovenia & Belgium)

Scoring 6 and conceding 3.

They have quite a few "big names" in their side but are not prolific scorers. (Hope I'm not tempting fate)

All we can hope is that by the time our game against them comes around it matters and we have an opportunity to go through to the next round.

C'mon Scotland.

The kick off times for the Euros are 2:00pm, 5:00pm and 8:00pm, the majority being at the two later times. 

Quite a lot of football over the next month.

 

 

 

The above is for @TediousTom and anyone else who might be easily confused.

Scotland are almost 2/1 to win the first game, interesting enough for me to place a small wager, although I'll probably wait till closer to kick off.

I planned to watch the game myself but ended up going out for something to eat.

Although it can’t be denied that 3-1 against Albania is an ok result, I’ve heard from many sources (including our own Jimmy H) that the Czechs were far from impressive. Also a lot of folk saying that they looked incredibly vulnerable down the flanks defensively and had zero width in attack. The inference being that a better team than Albania would have exposed these frailties more. 
Let’s hope that’s true, but we all know I guess that the only thing that matters is what happens on the day.

I’m definitely a lot more confident than I was before.
