      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. Valencia v Barcelona

    I went to Valencia v Levante two years ago. Original plan was Barca v Valencia but only single tickets were available and they were like £100 and up. So we drove to Valencia and saw the Derby for £25 a head, just bought tickets at the ground a couple of hours before kick off. I imagine that might be more tricky for game v Barca though. Got an Airbnb 5 mins walk from the stadium for about £20.
  2. Next Scotland Manager ?

    6-4-0 is not talking about "chinkies" and Jews and gays. One picks bad tactics, one is a bad man. And anyway, I was joking.
  3. Scott McTominay

    How can it be possible that Islam Feruz is still at Chelsea?
  4. Next Scotland Manager ?

    Bring back Levein. See if he's learned anything. Everyone deserves a second chance.
  5. Next Scotland Manager ?

    That's the lot of the football manager unfortunately. There's only so much you can do, to influence the guys on the park and very little patience from fans when things go wrong. You're a genius or an arsehole.
  6. Next Scotland Manager ?

    Well, we'll see. Just hope the new guy hits the ground running.
  7. Next Scotland Manager ?

    He didn't play Griffiths when he was kept out of the Celtic team by Dembele and when he'd played 9 games without a goal for Scotland. Do you not remember Griffiths clean thru 2 on 1 at Wembley, or missing an open goal v Slovenia? For someone that is as stubborn as is alleged it is strange - baffling even - that he changed his entire team to something more effective over the course of the campaign. You say baffling, I say progress and learning. He's not the best manager we could ever hope for. But he might be the best available just now.
  8. Next Scotland Manager ?

    I didn't think his decisions were baffling. You might not have agreed 100%, but he didn't play Griffiths in goal, he didn't play Barry Bannan at centre-half or refuse to call up Scott Brown - that would be baffling. If not playing uncapped Calum McGregor or other newby John McGinn in a crunch match is baffling, well, you're easily baffled. I also concede that the next manager may do better - I really hope he does - but, given the options, I'm not confident that'll be the case.
  9. Next Scotland Manager ?

    I'm not depressed, I'm just not furious that we missed the play-offs by a single goal.
  10. Next Scotland Manager ?

    He's gone and he's not coming back, I accept that. I still think it's a mistake and it's fresh enough for me to say so. Most United fans thought Levein would be a bad appointment. He was good at finding and rehabilitating guys like Swanson, Gomis and so on. His tactics were always suspect.
  11. Next Scotland Manager ?

    I don't hero-worship him. I just don't think it was good to sack him and I don't see a better realistic candidate. Your misconstruing of me and my views is comical.
  12. Next Scotland Manager ?

    McInnes just seems to be too similar to Levein for me. Decent at organising ordinary players, able to spot unfulfilled talent but he strikes me very much as a club manager.
  13. Next Scotland Manager ?

    Ok, so who? You do know the genetics comment, while misjudged and manna for those who wanted him gone, was really just a comment on how their team was bigger than ours? I don't think he was trying to air any reasoned scientific opinion.
  14. Next Scotland Manager ?

    A Levein/Burley dream team maybe?
  15. Next Scotland Manager ?

    In what way? Because I think some of the grievances raised against Strachan are petty and highly subjective?
