      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. So no game till march 2019 then.

    Thanks After reading a number of websites, this is the best explanation i have seen
  2. Team for next year

    We have a year to give experience to some players, we really need to take advantage of this. Gordon Paterson Berra Lindsay Tierney Brown Mcginn forrest Armstrong Robertson Griffiths In the squad/give them a chance Mcgregor, souttar, cummings, burke, cairney gauld, there will be some others to keep in - D.fletcher, C.Martin, snodgrass but we need to bleed some player new players NOW! Never to be seen again - Phillips, Hanley, S.fletcher, R.Martin, B.Bannan. Mcarthur
  3. To stay or go?

    with a team berti made - mcfadden, fletcher, webster, hartley, caldwell. gordon. Without the process of giving all these guys a chance and getting rid of the deadwood we would have never had that euro 2008 and team
  4. To stay or go?

    Ok maybe not yogi but you get the idea of what i mean.
  5. Who Will Chuck It? Who Will Breakthrough?

    I dont think too many will retire, so i dont expect too many changes if strachan stay. The manager needs to retire them!! ie dont pick them Needs to go - anya, bannan, phillips, R.martin, Hanley, whittaker, S.fletcher, J. Mcarthur Coming in - Lindsay, Mcgregor, Mcginn, Shinnie, Christie, J. Souttar, C.Paterson. Cairney I would like to get a starting line up something like this to see how it goes in a friendly 4-2-3-1 Gordon Paterson Lindsay Berra Tierney Brown Mcgregor/Cariney Forrest/fraser Armstrong Robertson Griffiths
  6. To stay or go?

    Last manager to get us close to a tournament was foreign, say what you want about Berti but he bled some decent young players so set up smith and mcleish (yes i remember the faeros too). I would have a lars lagerback with a scottish assistant (someone like john hughes). We have time to get some young guys in with some friendlies and this euro nations thing. We need fresh eyes and a new look.
  7. So no game till march 2019 then.

    Dont we have game next year around this time in the nations league thing, we can qualify through that.
  8. Why is it even debatable?

    Grant Hanley cost us!! at fault for lithuania goal and at least 3 against slovakia and england
  9. How do we approach tomorrows game?

    From what i remember playing them, we had about 10 chances to score, hit the post, hit the bar, the keeper made some decent saves. I would like think a driving runner like macgregor or mcginn, maybe snodgrass for phillips. Griffiths movement gave their defence a tough time with movement. The keeper will be a big test to get through. They will also be tired after the england game.
  10. How do we approach tomorrows game?

    Start Martin up front with griffiths on the left, pump the ball up to him and hope he wins free kicks for griffiths
  11. Team for Slovenia

    Fletcher was outstanding last night. He was such a leader, giving the fact we thought brown being out was the end of the earth. Even bleed for the team and made them stay out after full time to hear the fans. Fletch is one of the first names, i would drop phillips, bannon before him Gordon KT Berra Mulgrew Robertson Fletcher Morrison Forrest Mcgregor Griffiths Martin
  12. Slovakia.

    marek hamsik = difference
  13. Slovakia and Slovenia squad

    BBC Says Griffiths with Calf issues? http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/41423559 Hopefully typical BBC Scaremongering
  14. 5 in midfield name them

    I would not mind this at all I can see Forrest Fletcher McArthur Bannan Phillips
  15. Scottish Players in action 17/18

    Barry Bannan "Star Player" for SW today
