      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. 2nd Place

    Aye good point ? Torturing myself today with "what ifs" ??? "what if" we had beaten Lithuania at home "what if" The ref hadn't given England a foul that wasn't a foul "what if" Stuart Armstrong had hoofed the ball row z or passed left rather than right... "What if" Craig Gordon had came off his line and caught the ball before it got to Kane "What if Slovakia and England do draw and we beat Malta" We'd be top of the group !!! ??????
  2. 2nd Place

    And will suit us if we win our last 3 !
  3. 2nd Place

    Whilst the negativity on here is probably justified, the reality is there is a good chance that we will wake up on Tuesday morning knowing that if we win against a pretty mediocre Slovakia team at home in front of a full house then that puts us firmly in the driving seat and that our final game is against a team who will more than likely be already out. Granted our recent record of "must wins" isn't great so at the moment I'm just happy that tomorrow's game isn't a dead rubber but I'm also quietly confident that a play-off place is well within our reach especially if we play the high pressing game we played on Friday in the remaining 3 games
  4. C mon england

    If we win all 3 then a draw in the England v Slovakia game is ok too, Slovakia win and we are out. What worries me is that England are bang average at best
  5. Brown & Snodgrass both declared fit.

    Play a centre half pairing where both players are actually getting a game for their clubs play Brown MacArthur Morrison Burke and Snodgrass in midfield and Gtiffiths up top, job done .... its the hope that kills you eh ?
  6. England V Australia

    " yeah we need to find another team to support now like Wales or Ireland or ... (through gritted teeth) Scotland " No thanks Clive you complete bellend ?
  7. Team For Poland

    If you'd have asked me a few weeks ago then my team would have been nothing like the one below. The problem with international football is if you have a bad game then you sometimes have to wait months to put that right and win fans over and fans never forget bad performances esp at international level. I.e Chris Martin awful v England. Overweight slow and not mobile. However looked a different player when he came on v Germany and club form excellent. Again wasnt a great fan of Rittchie lots of effort and no final product, but again he has won me over. We can't have any passengers v Poland I.e. Forrest (waste of a jersey) and Hutton is lazy. ( thought he could have done much better to prevent WBA goal yesterday, standing ball watching! Anyhoo we need people who will run all day for you Anya and Maloney have been too lightweight recently. I think Russell and Naismith are good going forward but give you some dig and something in defence too. Brown has had a mare recently and Fletcher hasn't done enough. So I'd go with ... Marshall Whittaker Hanley Martin Robertson Fletcher MacArthur Ritchie Russell Naismith Martin Ask me in 2 weeks and I'll have changed my mind again haha that's why we love footy I suppose ?
  8. Naismith Hattrick

    The coverage of how good the Naismith hat trick was by MOTD was a disgrace. More interested in Stones and the Chelsea defensive frailties again "future England captain" Stones related Three goals against any Mourinho side deserves much better than that especially when they were such good finishes !
  9. If We Beat Poland...

    If Ireland don't beat Germany And we beat Poland ( yes I know it's a big if !!!) Three points against Gib and we have a play - off Doom and gloomers can be as grumpy as they want but that is fact Try the predictor thingy it's fun ...
  10. Will We Do It?

    What a fickle lot we football supporters are ... No-one is arguing that it wasn't a truly awful performance on Friday However its in the past and we can't let one bad game spoil the next game or the next three Let's look at it another way, assume Gib is a gimme we probably need 3 points from two home games to get at least a play off place There aren't too many of the so-called "big teams" come to Hampden and turn us over I'm not saying we should be super confident but some of the doom and gloom is a wee bit over the top as it's not out the question that it will be down to getting three points against Poland at home to get at least a play off place and possibly second Id probably have taken that at the start of the campaign
  11. My son Lewis who is almost nine has Downs and is a total superstar, he goes to mainstream school does Tae Kwon Do and plays football every Saturday morning. He's been with me on two away trips too ( Spain & Lichtenstein) Perhaps a little known fact is that there are 3 kinds of Downs and a huge variance in terms of severity. He is very lucky to be at the less severe end of this spectrum, while he has his challenges he brings so much joy into the lives of people who he comes into contact with. I am so proud of him and the only limits he has are the ones other people try to put on him. People like to label people with Downs as "loving" and "always happy" simply not true Lewis has his moments and is grumpy like his mum the point being everyone with Downs has their own personality just like me and you... his life is made much more difficult though by me taking him to watch Falkirk
  12. Gibraltar Attendance

    A wee Sunday afternoon in the south side in the springtime How civilised Near sell out for me
  13. Aiden Mcgeady

    Girfuy ya wee rodent Even funnier that he was defending the post at the goal and decided to go walkabout hahahaha Just watched the analysis after the game and Quinn and Houghton gave him it tight too Too funny Amazing to see maloney scoring a carbon copy of the goal for Wigan against Man U
  14. Can't wait until this game is over, I thought some of our fans spouted some nonsense but some of the stuff on this thread is ridiculous What a mixed up bunch Roll on next Saturday after an easy win
  15. Scotland Vs Ireland Predictions

    They are no better than a pub team and we should pump them... My only concern is they park two buses in front of the goal and score in the 10th minute of injury time . In fact nah 3-0 Scotland
