      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. So no game till march 2019 then.

    I work with a guy that has a draw party. I always thought it was a bit odd but to each his own I suppose. The guy also has a Eurovision party every year though so there’s clearly something wrong with him.

    The playoff draw last week was on a Tuesday. There doesn’t seem to be much logic to when the draws are held.

    A 5 year old (who could be bothered to read it) could understand it.

    It’s really not that complicated once you read up on it. http://www.uefa.com/community/news/newsid=2079553.html
  5. Who Should Be The Next Manager

    I fancy that burd out of Wonder Woman but she’s not on your list. Neither is Michael O’Neill interestingly.
  6. Scottish Players in action 17/18

    Yeah but unless he’s got some serious fortune telling skills he wasn’t to know he’d be in this position. He’s obviously got confidence in his own ability and will still believe he can break into the team.

    You can’t turn down signing for a club like Liverpool. If it doesn’t work out then so be it but he’d have had regrets for the rest of his life if he had turned them down.
  8. Strikers for next campaign

    I’m not sure I’d write Rhodes off just yet. He’s only 27.
  9. Next Scotland Manager ?

    The final draw hasn’t been made yet. Our group should be a little easier than that. We can’t get Hungary, Romania or Slovenia in our group as they are the top seeds (along with us) in League C. If all the top seeds in League C win their groups then the playoffs would be Hungary, Romania, Slovenia and Scotland.

    Maybe he’ll end up in the Scotland job.

    Anything’s possible. Klopp is a bit eccentric I suppose but it would be a bit of a dick move on his part if that was the case. It would also be illegal, if difficult to prove.
  12. Next Scotland Manager ?

    Yeah I didn’t word that very well. I meant equivalent to getting a playoff because it’s going to work differently from how it works now. There are no playoffs for the European championships anymore through the qualifiers (although there are playoffs in the Nations League - confusing isn’t it?). If we win our Nations League group then we will go into the playoffs with the other three group winners from League C. It will be a semi finals and final situation. The winners of the semis will play in the final. The winners of the final qualify for the Euro 2020 finals. We would then be in League B for the following Nations League which would start in September 2022. We could theoretically get into the playoffs if we finish second in our group due to league A and B teams qualifying through the qualifiers proper as they would have no need of a playoff. If that happens then we would be playing off against league B teams (more difficult in theory). Don’t try and read up on it if you’ve had a few as it will pickle your brain.
  13. Next Scotland Manager ?

    No we didn’t.
  14. Next Scotland Manager ?

    I can just see us singing along to Rabbit at half time.
  15. Next Scotland Manager ?

    On current form we struggled against Slovenia and probably should have lost. Even if we keep our current form for the Nations League (or improve on it) we are guaranteed nothing. We will have a good chance though.
