    The final World Cup game at Hampden?

    It's genuinely baffling that folk argue for Murrayfield on the basis that Hampden has poor sightlines. Been to a couple of Rugby games behind the posts at Murrayfield and the view was pish, just as bad as Hampden. Hampden certainly needs to improve on the views from behind the goals, especially for those lower down (I don't actually think being close to the back of the West/East stands is actually too bad). If we stay at Hampden and have more control of it then we at least retain the opportunity to make those changes at some point. Move to Murrayfield and we'd lose that level of control. Not worth it.

    Plenty of flight options between the cities in the US, you would also assume that the group stages would be clustered together to avoid massive distances between games.

    Was the most likely bid to win, it's a really easy decision for FIFA and will mean that there are few issues in the run up to this World Cup. They've taken a lot of flak for Russia, but thats nothing compared to what it will be like in 4 years time. The last thing they would have wanted would be for them to be going from Qatar to Morocco with questions about stadiums, transport etc. I quite like World Cups in South and North America. Generally get to see more games as the kick off times tend to be from 5pm onwards.

    Scotland hit the post, then the bar and then make it 3-2 in injury time. Some comeback!

    2-0 down, back to 2-2 with 8 mins left...

    Think the deal is that the difference in winnings between the "normal" odds and the enhanced odds are paid out in free bets.

    Coral are offering 60/1 on Brazil for new customers. £1 max stake and a minimum £5 deposit. Put that on then stuck the £4 balance on Neymar to be top scorer. Fancy Brazil to win it this time, but there's not much value in betting them at 4/1 so this was ideal for me. If Brazil do win it then I would imagine that Neymar will get a fair few goals.

    I can't see them getting past Germany or Brazil either, but in knock out football you just never know. I'm the same with England, don't really know what to think. They usually qualify with ease and on paper have a decent enough squad and team but ultimately they have a pretty poor record at tournaments, since 1990 they have had a couple of QF appearances, a couple of R16's and a group stage knock out last time. I can see them struggling past Tunisia and Panama and then possibly looking better against Belgium as they are likely to come out and play. Chances are they will come up against Poland/Colombia in the R16 which would be a difficult game for them.

    Assuming (i know) that Brazil and Germany win their respective groups then England will face one of them in the Quarter Finals depending on where they finish in their own group.

    Mexico-Scotland

    Liam McLeod thinks McBurnie is McGeouch so asking them to spot the little things is probably a bit too much to ask 😂

    Mexico-Scotland

    One of those if it was anywhere else on the pitch, it would be a free kick ones. Should have been a penalty I think

    1-2 backs to the wall now 🙄

    Players look shattered. Poor start to the second half, if it keeps up we will be lucky to hold on.

    Tierney

    Danny Rose I think. I think he's angling to leave though.
