    Who do you think will win world cup?

    It's possibly more wide open than I've ever known it to be... Lots of teams have a decent chance. I'd say Germany's probably the most likely.... For a long shot bet, I think Uruguay, Colombia and Peru all have an outside chance.

    First job for mcleish....

    Don't necessarily disagree with what NIcholas has to say about the rules or the reliance on eligibles. However, two things about this article really piss me off. - The fact that he's waited for ST to declare for Scotland to come out with this. This is a lad who's declared for us at a young age, after only a handful of games, but who's playing at one of the best teams in Europe. It's so different from the numerous "English" boys who've declared for us at 23/24 once they find themselves 1/3 of a way through their career and still at Derby, QPR or Bournemouth. - My question would be why didn't he choose one of those occasions to raise this point? But then again, when I think about it, that wouldn't be any better as he really doesn't know anything about their family situation or what makes someone who doesn't have a Scottish accent feel Scottish. My son doesn't have a Scottish accent, but try telling him that when Lee Griffiths got that second free kick or when we murdered them English at the rugby last week. By the way... English press wasting no time in trying to shoot ST down now he's made his decision... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-5465663/Manchester-Uniteds-Scott-McTominay-struggled-Crystal-Palace-test.html

    To be fair to the lad, it's a tough decision. Sounds like he's got a lot of Scottish family and I'd be delighted if he chose us. He's got a lot of colleagues that will be persuading him towards England though, so I can't begrudge him taking that option either. Good luck to him whatever he chooses.... Can't help thinking of Gabby Agbonlahor though who got 2 or 3 appearances for England, but could have been a star for Scotland across numerous campaigns. Hopefully McLeish's power of persuasion is better this time.

    European Nations League

    I think its a good draw for us. No pool is easy in European football, but those are two teams we should be expecting to get the upper hand on. Rep of Ireland got Wales and Denmark. I'd be a lot less confident if we'd landed in that pool.

    March 2018 friendly rumour.

    Hope you cleaned yourself up okay.

    Next Scotland Manager ?

    BBC are reporting that he's set for face to face talks next week, which sounds like more of a progression... http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42671440
  7. Last time the Ugly Sisters had a 6 goal reverse in the Premier League over a weekend? I think this may actually be a first. Great weekend of football!

    Malky's Squad

    I really think we need to try a new formation to accommodate both Tierney and Robertson on the left side.. 3-2-4-1 seems right for this type of game... gordon cooper berra tierney paterson robertson brown mcginn shinnie armstrong griffiths
  9. My son's half Scottish, half Peruvian. Couldn't actually believe they made it. So used to him having the worst of both worlds. Peru and Scotland do have similarities.
  10. Actually it's worse than that... apparently Bolivia fielded an ineligible player when they drew with Chile. Chile pointed this out to FIFA and they gave them the extra 2 points... However this also gave 3 extra points to Peru who had lost 2-0... no complaint and Chile are in the playoffs.
  11. Have you seen Chile play? They're murder... kick good teams off the park while spending at least 50 minutes diving and rolling about the floor.

    Next Scotland Manager ?

    Moyes is the obvious choice, but he wouldn't be my pick. I'd try for Jurgen Klinsmann... I think he'd be brilliant in the role.

    Draw is enough

    Slovenia need Gibraltar to beat Greece, and Malta to not lose to Slovakia.... and need to beat us of course. At this point I think we can say they don't have too much to play for.... Gerrintaeummm!

    Play off table

    I don't mind that he's not backing the team to win... That's his business, and a pretty common Scottish trait that we've seen plenty of on this board in the last year or two. .... What I hate though is that he's getting paid a ton of money to wear a cheap suit and give "analysis" that can be proved wrong with even just a cursory glance at the league tables, the fixtures and a calculator. How do these guys get away with not actually doing any research? It's Scotland he's talking about. If he can't even give a meaningful opinion on that, what's he got for all the other countries he's no doubt got to talk about?

    Undefeated at home

    Aye... Your counting is better than mine. That last minute Hanley effort against Lithuania is rarely mentioned. It was a hair's breadth from a goal.
