    Toulon Tournament

    8 times out of 10 England would beat Iceland... but I get your point. Even by maximising your team you will never win the World Cup if you are Iceland or Scotland but you might make the last 16 with a lucky draw and a good team.

    Comedy goalkeeping for Burke’s goal. He had ages to come off his line and clear.

    Mckenna at fault at the end switching off. Let a player run right off him. Decent until then.

    We were lucky to escape with a narrow defeat, could easily have been five.

    Still interested to see how he is going to incorporate Tierney and Robertson in to this team... we seem to look more comfortable with five at the back.

    I think mcgeoch has been poor, doesn’t look good enough for this level. To be fair we have been outplayed comprehensively with Russel about the only decent player on our side.

    John robertson would be a straight swap for Willie Johnstone as an outside left. Yeah, with hindsight Rioch and Masson were a year or two passed their best.... souness was the choice that should have been made.

    My first World Cup that I can really remember and I can completely agree with this. The expectation was enormous... the group stage a formality and then it was about how we performed against the bigger teams (ie our peers). It’s really not far fetched to think we could win it. Only 16 teams back then and we were probably in the top 6, I think we were 8-1 to win the cup. If it had been in Europe and we had us full strength team (ie Mcgrain and McQueen) every chance we could have won it. Our first 11 could have been... Rough Jardine Mcqueen buchan Mcgrain Gemmil souness Hartford Robertson Dalglish Jordan Watching the Perú game, I remember it being a Saturday evening, we scored and my dad turned and said to me “watch this... we will score a few more now”. Genuine shock when we were pumped. after this things were never the same... stein brought pragmatism, playing a solid 4-4-2, with usually a defender in midfield and often without wingers. We were making up the numbers.

    McLeish post-Peru

    Lets wait and see once he has his best players available and we are play8ng competitive football. In an ideal world you would bring through players that are for two to three years down the line but only when you have a solid teAm around them of first team players.

    McGregor with Gordon as back up will do for me.... will see us through the next few years.

    McLeish post-Peru

    His wn ratio when in the job before was outstanding, better than virtually every other Scotland manager. He has done about as well as expected first three games, lost to two countries who are better than us and beaten the weaker team. I’m not sure what kind of inspiration you are expecting from a bunch of journeymen at best. I expect us to go out and try and not get a hiding and nick the odd goal as that is our level.
