      PLEASE READ: TAMB is not closing!   10/12/2017

      Just to provide an update on the future of the Tartan Army Message Board. To be clear the board will not be closing and instead will be staying open and will hopefully go from strength to strength. Who Are We? We are a group of Scotland supporters who have varied skills and expertise, along with experience of  being involved in football and running football message boards. When we heard the TAMB faced closure, we contacted the old team with a detailed plan which involved financing and running the board. After speaking to the old team on a number of occasions they have allowed us to put our plan into action. While speaking to them and going on their experience and that of those before them, we have elected to keep our identity private, however rest assured we have the best intentions for the board and those on it. Our Plans. Our plan will involve a number of stages which we hope will not only keep the board going but help improve and rejuvenate it. Our first step will be to do a bit of a clean-up of the board. This will involve some downtime for a few hours where posting will be disabled. We plan to do this early next week, a full notice will be posted on the board then. Once that is completed we will be upgrading the current board platform, both behind the scenes and hopefully aesthetically too. There will be an ongoing process of board improvements which we hope you, the user will help us with, so you have a board you will enjoy We thank the old board team for all their hard work, dedication and their help during this handover and hope you will all help support our plans going forward.

  1. North Stand Ticket x 1 Available

    Ticket now sold
  2. Hi there My brother can no longer make game, therefore I have a ticket for North Stand, D4 available. £40 (face value).
  3. Last 4 matches

    My point is that if you do not aim to be the very best then what is the point? Aim for 2nd, 3rd, 4th best and that's what you'll get. Go through every nation in Europe and consider their best ever run in a tournament, think we are undoubtedly the biggest underachievers. All the home nations have progressed further and here's some more....... Bulgaria, Semis WC 94 Sweden, Semis EC 92 and WC 94 Iceland, QF EC 2016 Turkey, SF WC 2002 .........and yet we think that it's somehow impossible! Why?
  4. Last 4 matches

    I agree with this, it's deep-rooted in our psyche. The minute the group was drawn, we were aiming for second place, pathetic stuff really. Our recent match against England was a fairly even contest in my opinion yet our national manager comes out after the game and says, 'it was like watching a faitherweight box a heavyweight.' Anybody who did not see the game would think we were absolutely battered from start to finish. Our population is over 5 milion, our national sport is football, therefore our ambition should be to win either the Euros or World Cup, why not?
  5. Six Nations

    Yes that was him, not surprising that he's a downtrodden no voter. Scotland were mentally weak yesterday, beaten before the game even started.
  6. Not a bad way to think about it! That's me booked up for it, training starts next week!!
  7. Haha, I totally agree, but would like to do it once too!
  8. Hi there It has been on my to-do list for a few years now, so thinking of running a marathon this year before I get too old to run a decent time. Been looking at the Perthshire and Fort William runs later this year. Thing that puts me off the Perthshire one is that it's a half marathon course that you run round twice, think I'd struggle with that psychologically. Fort William run mentions various terrain, don't want to be running through forests and mud tracks. Think I will have to pick one of them though as this will fit into a 16 week training plan which I aim to complete prior to the race. Any advice / tips would be greatly appreciated.
  9. To be honest, what is the point in merely qualifying unless the aim is to win it outright!
  10. Surely the North and South American countries now have to be grouped together. Mexico and USA already effectively have a bye to qualify for each tournament. New Zealand also together with every other country in Oceania should also by lumped into the Asian qualifying section. World qualifying groups would resolve the issue although that would be extremely difficult and would mean the entire football calendar would have to be synchronized.
  11. It goes without saying that all Scotland games matter to us all. However, surely at some point you actually want to follow a winning team and witness some success? If it's just a carry on and a few pints and laughs you're after, you can do that any weekend.
  12. Yes, winning a tournament should be the ultimate aim. Think you misread it, I meant we should at least aim for the ultimate prize, as opposed to aiming for 2nd / 3rd place finishes before a ball has been kicked.
  13. I agree, a boycott seems to be the only option left to get our point across. Think an empty Hampden at the Slovenia or England (better option) match next year would get people talking. Our ongoing negligence and continued failure out our NATIONAL sport has to be addressed, or else what is the point? No more acceptance of failure and mediocrity can be accepted. Our aim should not only be to qualify (lets do that first) for a major tournament, our ultimate aim should be to reach the latter stages and WIN, yes WIN a tournament. That should be the aim at the very least. No more 'poor wee us canna compete because we're too wee and too sh1te', lets aim for the very top. Look at Uruguay, population of 3.4 million.....2 x World Cups and a record 15 x Copa Americas won. WE SIMPLY DO NOT HAVE AN EXCUSE FOR FAILURE. If anyone reading this thinks I am being unrealistic or too ambitious, then I would say that YOU are part of the problem.
  14. Yep, last few years have been shattering both in a football and political sense. Although, part of me is glad that all the home nations and Eire are progressing because it gets it right up the sfa, Scottish football in general and the pathetic can't do mentality of our nation. Will we ever wake up and strive to do better? Doubt it
  15. It is a very good representation of the pathetic downtrodden nation that we are.
