  1. world cup of losers

    The Kirin Cup (as a Tournament) was scrapped for many years, and has only recently started again in last couple of years (Japan would play single international matches and say it was for the Kirin Cup.... like our 2009 match)
  2. Michael O Neill

    Sky Sports reporting that the SFA have approached the IFA for permission to speak with O'Neill (with Sunderland also sniffing around)
  3. Under 21’s

    He was a bit of a dumpling, and no major loss..... at 16/17 I can understand why we had him about (built like Mike Tyson in his prime.....) but higher up the chain he went, he just didn't developed as a player.
  4. Under 21’s

    Gemmill can be a little guilty of picking his favorites when it comes to his team, but a fair few of last nights team went to the Toulon Tournament (not sure how many played in the Brazil match).... off top of my head, Burke, Wright, Hardie, Taylor, McCorrie and Hardie all went... with players like Jules, Iacovitti, Summut and Wighton hardly ever getting call up's and players like Thomson, Ralston, Wilson etc getting a single cap here and there.
  5. Under 21’s

    McBurnie certainly put himself about well last night (also looks really odd that he effectively wears ankle socks and no shin pads, when everyone else had their socks over the knee's somewhat ) but just no end product and was not getting the service he needed. Good Ukraine support there last night making a bit of a atmosphere
  6. March 2018 friendly rumour.

    I honestly think the press are just putting one and one together after Malky's comments at the weekend (while he mentioned Uruguay, seemed to only reference Argentina by name dropping Messi) and there will be no mini-tournament, with us going out to Morocco in March to play Morocco on the 27th (last international date) after their Cup of Nations Qualifier, or as Malky hinted at, using a neutral venue to play ?????
  7. March 2018 friendly rumour.

    Not the greatest source, but Argentina wiki page says they are playing Italy and Japan in March.
  8. Global Nations League

    While looks good on paper, I suspect the group stages will be regional somewhat (so we would still be in UEFA) and would not be until the play off "finals" before we play teams from outside of Europe (asking a lot for the likes of Andorra and San Marino to travel to Fiji or American Samoa for a match.....)
  9. March 2018 friendly rumour.

    More chance of Morocco in March I would say than the USA..... Regan was recently in Morocco and gave a interview where he talked about a SFA-FRMF partnership where the two could work together. Morocco have a African Cup of Nations Qualifier in March, but could still use the other free date. As I said previously though, I doubt we will go further than Europe, and I do not expect any news until the new year.
  10. March 2018 friendly rumour.

    Would take the NYC "rumours" with a pinch of salt, as I would imagine the SFA have not even thought that far ahead yet....... seems to be someone has noticed the international break is the week before the Tartan Week Festival in NYC starts. Imagine we will start hearing something round about December time (stories of the Poland and Czech friendlies started to leak through roundabout the holiday times) and I think there is more chance of a home and away (in Europe) game than the team going to the States.
  11. New jerseys?

    There is a rather amusing "leak" going around of a kit people are saying is the new Scotland kit..... its a Adidas top and its using the early 90's Arsenal "bruised banana" design.... but its two very contrasting shades of blue (imagine something Coventry City would have worn in the 90's!). Most likely a mock up which will be toned down for the final design or the guy who did the fakes on Alibaba last time has got the colors even more wrong this time.
  12. Friendly Next Month

    On top of next month, I would expect a home and away game in March, and at least 1 Nigeria at Fulham style game at the end of the season. With the World Cup in Russia, plenty of teams from South America and Africa will come to Europe for training camps, and no doubt the SFA will tart themselves as a good opponent for any teams who want to play a "British style" team if they draw England (and potentially Northern and/or Republic of Ireland).
  13. Wurzburg?

    The German boy who goes to Scotland games with us is from Wurzburg. For flights he uses mainly Frankfurt, as he can get a train/bus/pick up staright the airport and be home in no time.
  14. New jerseys?

    Russia, Argentina and Germany kits from Adidas have been leaked. Russia one is VERY reminiscent of Adidas classic 1990 template that Cameron, Romania and Columbia wore (and Marseille at club level).... while Germany one is using the same basic template, but with their Iconic Euro 1988 kit design across the chest. Would imagine ours will be similar to the Russia one, but in dark blue.
  15. European Nations League

    1) Basically anyone in a 3 group team would see 1 team with a free date to use as they wish (given almost everyone in UEFA will be involved in the Nations League, this means will have to look outside UEFA or pick 1 of the 3 other free teams) 2) Will only impact the next Euros, as that is if this format goes beyond this Euro campaign. 3) Final 4 has no issue with us as its only with the Division A teams to give a over all "winner".... as you said, side show/gloss over the whole format.
