      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. Canary Islands

    Thanks for that, i'll have a look. I think I would prefer the greener rather than the volcanic; I had an idea Tenerife was a bit volcanic but then saw they had some parks which i wasn't expecting. I suppose it can have it's charms the barren landscape (we've got it here plenty!) but would rather something a bit more lively! I think we'll probably go for gran canaria. I'll put an update of how we get on.
  2. Canary Islands

    The Canary Islands have a few different national parks. Trying to decide which Island to go to for the best one? Has anyone been to any of them or recommend? There's a famous one in Tenerife but are any of the others better? Looking for some decent mountain walks and maybe some bike routes.
  3. Thanks Gordon

    I would have wished him all the best til i heard his pre media performance in Slovenia. No class.
  4. Strachan's gone

    Even in that era of 'building a team' our players were always better than the rest of that group's. No achievement to get 2nd. Any manager should have achieved that. I question slightly the building a team thing anyway. The players were obvious bar McFadden and Fletcher more or less. It wasn't our fault he was picking Warren Cummings. Looking at that team that beat Holland they are all premiership or champions league players more or less.
  5. Strachan's gone

    i genuinely can't believe folk are saying Vogts was better than McLeish. we're through the looking glass. getting us past that dross he had in the group. We had one flukey result against holland (fair play the boys played well that day), by the way the team wasn't that bad..plenty premiership and champions league players in there..no Paul Devlins of the beginning). That's about it. Forgetting the Faroes, Moldova, Wales when they were pish. Just because McLeish left under a bit of cloud seems to be clouding perceptions.
  6. Strachan's gone

    bang on the money. I actually had to look up who was in our group. Can't believe we struggled to get a play off with that level of opposition. How come we never get groups like that these days!!
  7. Strachan's gone

    it's not really so amazing. an argument can be made for both. Vogts scraped us to a play off in a pishy group. McLeish and Smith nearly took us to a play off with the World champs, world cup runners up, world cup quarter finalists and one of those teams we always struggle with in the group. If you're going for what round he got us to sure. He got us one game closer to qualifying. I wouldn't call it significantly better. If McFadden had scored that sitter v Italy, was it play off we were going to or straight qualification? i can't actually remember!
  8. Strachan's gone

    eh? reading something into it that's beyond me there
  9. Strachan's gone

    I'm not defending Strachan. He had to go because he made odd decisions. You'd be mad to not see that he had developed a squad that you saw very few call offs from though. Hope the manager maintains a good spirit alongside actually being able to make good tactical decisions!
  10. Strachan's gone

    you need someone with a bit of pedigree for international football I think. Michael O'neill seems to be the out lier to the rule. Man management is key. Strachan did much better than some of the others in that front. His team stuck with him. He was just too stubborn to pick the right players and get the tactics right. Can't think of anyone at the moment that fits the bill. I would be inclined to give it to Tommy Wright but there's a good chance he couldn't handle Engish premiership players etc. There's got to be respect. Wee Gordon had that at least.
  11. Strachan's gone

    Step forward Ian Cathro.
  12. aye scunnered by it all. I do think we need another vote though once Brexit is known. I think that's only fair. Scunnered by politicians in general though. Fair play to them on the fracking however. WAsn't expecting that.
  13. Aye I'm not into conspiracy theories but when saville is getting knighted and that archbishop is real close to the royal family despite both having serious rumours about them you have to wonder. They do crazy checks on people to work at MI5/6 but were expected to believe they didn't know anything about these two.. please.
  14. I know it's no laughing matter but you're absolute spot on. What a mess. I dont understand how people of that size can physically do anything.
  15. don't think anything is going to happen here for a good while. All depends on Brexit really. snp will hover around 35-43% for next wee while. Think people are punch drunk of politics at the moment. nothing good seems to come of the radical changes. it's a shame timing has gone against it.
