      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. NFL Thread 2016/17

    Hitting a few sports bars in London today. Heard the Dugout at London Bridge is good. probably heading to Marylebone sports bar again as had great College Football coverage last time I was there on the Saturday. decent weekend of football matches as well, going to be a cracking time.
  2. First time missing a Hampden appearance for the Hibees in 20 years! will be cheering them on down in the Imperial Capital. 2-2 game showed we can stand up to them although I think Stevenson could be in for a tough game against Roberts.
  3. Decent game at Easter Road. Can't really complain about the performance. Logan was very good, really impressed with him for Aberdeen. stevie May very lucky to just get a booking. Shocking tackle.
  4. excellent news, thank you to whoever you are.
  5. NFL Thread 2016/17

    1 week to go till the Rams v cardinals game. Anyone do the street party when down for the last games? also, trying to remember where there is a huge sports bar that shows all the College games on a Saturday night. It was near an overland station within the city, that's all I can remember!
  6. End of the Road for.....

    and leave out John McGinn? mental.
  7. History - Glorious faulre

    we hung back for a about 10 mins after England went 4-0 then we tried to up the ante to get another goal. For 17 mins, me and my pals (all four of them no longer go to games) were thinking we were heading into the quarter finals at Anfield. Scotlands problem was scoring goals, Durie and Spencer werent prolific international goalscorers and Booth and Donnelly were pretty poor. McCoist missed two absolute sitters before he scored the wonder goal. That goal was probably one of the finest moments for me watching Scotland. Was in the Holte End, so had a great view. Place went absolutely mental. I can feel it in myself that I'm getting more and more detracted from following Scotland in these campaigns. I refuse to go to friendlies now, maybe Im just reaching the point my pals did years ago.
  8. USA went out last night, ridiculous for them. MLS is gaining some traction in the States as well.
  9. Really looking forward to Saturday against Aberdeen. Should be a full house, so decent atmosphere with us having came back to a bit of form as well.
  10. Sad

    Interesting point from Stuart Cosgrove that he reckons the Tartan Army has aged, think he is right.
  11. Match thread

    Forrest has over 20 caps and hasn't a goal or even an assist against his name.
  12. To stay or go?

    Rabbit caught in the headlights when Slovenia scored. Depressing tactics, sooner Strachan goes the better.
  13. Play off table

    Itv4 there just said Scotland are now bottom of 2nd placed teams..
  14. Slovak Experience

    Sitting here n the East watching the Griffiths free kick I couldn't help seeing the hundred of mobile phones on in the west filming it.
  15. The final World Cup game at Hampden?

    even though Edinburgh is my city and it would very, very easy for me to see Scotland games at Murrayfield, with loads of boozers close by, it has to be Hampden. I think the East and West should be rebuilt closer to the pitch increasing the capacity to 70,000. Fcuk giving any more Scottish football money to the two ugly sisters. Ibrox is falling down and the area around Celtic Park is a sh1tehole.
