      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. You should've taken a quick snap of him on your phone and let him worry about where you were going to post it.
  2. Here's an idea... How about we advertise the job, wait for applicants, draw up a shortlist and select a candidate after interviewing them and finding out what they can bring to the role. A wee bit radical of course but I'm getting a bit sick of the, "I'd prefer to be at a club but if Scotland come crawling to me..." nonsense. They should be coming to us NOT the other way round.
  3. I think this would be a definite problem. You need someone with a presence that makes players shut up as soon as he walks into the dressing-room. The "here's my medals now show me yours" sort of thing.
  4. First time round McLeish wanted "commitment" from the SFA, i.e. that he wasn't just in for that campaign. He got that and then showed his commitment to us. He can GTF. Already hooring himself for the job I see. That might have something to do with nobody else wanting him of course. Huge step backwards IMO bringing him in.
  5. McLeish is a fkin arse. We don't need talking heads - we need action. Check out this USA pundit nearly spontaneously combusting: http://www.espn.co.uk/video/latest-videos/600/video/3226307 Loads of commonsense in under 3 minutes and could easily apply to us as well. I just wish we had folk prepared to show he same amount of passion instead of wanting to be the manager's best mate.
  6. Any do-or-die games where one team will be going for it hell for leather sort of like we wouldn't? Can the Dutch still qualify by some miracle or is Portugal v Switzerland the better option?
  7. We must've had 3 think-tanks in the time it took them to get their act together and start producing top players. Interesting that we're the only nation with a 100% record against them (last time I looked anyway). They'd fkin murder us now though.
  8. I'd rather wake up in the morning and find a black widow had laid its eggs in my arse crack than have him as manager. Too much baggage, used to manage them, and would bvgger off at the first whiff of a job down south.
  9. To think we were laughing at that Slovakian guy for complaining about their bags going missing at the airport! FFS that was Glenn Hoddlesque from Strachan.
  10. Armstrong should be the first name on the teamsheet and one of the last players you should be putting in front of him is Ryan Jack! Jack is nowhere near Armstrong's class - absolutely nowhere near it. We need to pick our best players and that means Armstrong. You're right about Shinnie though and he should get a call-up when Strachan disappears.
  11. He's made a total arse of himself with that remark. Now if it'd been along the lines of pairing up Leigh Griffiths and Kim Little...
  12. Me too. Folk need to realise there are no "gems" to be unearthed, absolutely none. Any good players are already in their own country's system and do we seriously want to sniff around the ones that they find out aren't up to it? You just have to look at the sh1te that approach has brought us so far. Phillips - "pace and power"? Is that another term for being as fkin slow as a week in Barlinnie and sh1ting out of tackles in case he can't play for his club next week? Get him and the other CV hoors to fck.
  13. From today's BBC website: Former Everton, Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland manager David Moyes believes he's ready for another job at an elite club. "After what happened at Sunderland, I want something that gives me a decent chance to really build something. I did that at Everton," he says. Forget Moyes. We'd only ever be seen as a stepping-stone by someone like him even though I think he could do a job for us.
