    Well that was the best weekend me and the wee man will possibly EVER have!! Sitting in the plane bound for Amsterdam still completely buzzing - just met Marco van Basten and watched the France team come through the airport! Met great new Colombian pals and now have an invite over there next summer 🇨🇴 A thoroughly amazing occasion, made ever better by the actual match - six goals, VAR involvement, dodgy keeping, torrential rain - just immense! Hotel was great too, loads of ex-players staying there including Stuart Pearce, Chris Waddle, Dion Dublin and Carlos Queiroz who joined us all last night in the bar for a few beers. Here’s to Qatar 2022! 🍻🇶🇦

    Chripper and friends, Any chance you could create your own thread to have your mind numbingly boring tactics/formation debate and leave this thread to folk who want to discuss Scotland players in action? Much obliged.

    The narrative on Hampden Park is way out of line with reality. Terms like "Dilapidated" and "not fit for purpose" are pure hyperbole similar to a political rant on social media. It has positives and many inaccuracies in the current debate. Transport It has 2 train stations. 5+ public bus routes. Shuttle buses from Buchanan Bus Station. 1 hours walk from city centre. About £10 to £12 in a taxi. Every stadium has delays in getting 50k out after a game. Wembley, Ibrox, Parkhead, Murrayfield. There have all been delays when I visit them for football, rugby and concerts. Better planning by supporters would make their journey easier. Better communication on what is out there would also help. Pubs There are 20 pubs within a 30 minute walk of Hampden. More restaurants. About 10 bowling clubs. q nightclub. Lots of places for people to go before and after the game from traditional pubs to trendier bars in Strathbungo. On here it seems people congregate to the same 2 or 3 venues that cause chaos. Facilities Yes behind the goals is poor. That is one area that should be improved if financially possible. South Stand is superb. North Stand is decent with upgraded facilities from Glasgow 2014. What else do people want? A fan zone in Lesser Hampden would be very good especially for families and hopefully something there or in the car park would be used. Atmosphere In the past 15 years Netherlands, Germany, Ukraine, France, Italy, Spain, England even Poland were all games with big atmospheres. Late goals v Slovakia and Slovenia were outstanding. I've seen grown men bouncing out the stadium after a good result and heard roars that I don't get at my own club team. On the pitch and off the pitch combine to make the atmosphere. It can be good. It can be very good. Being in another stadium would not improve this. History It's our home. Spiritual home of Scottish football. Go the museum as it is brilliant and learn and remember the history of the place and our place in the global game. The unique setup of Scottish domestic football means we need a neutral venue for the Old Firm who will (unfortunately :-) ) be in many cup finals against each other. This is the way of the world. Why would you want money to be given to the 2 biggest clubs if we played there or to another sport at Murrayfield? Selfishly it also brings a lot of money to Glasgow which is where I live.

    Evening All A few months back, when this new, bells-&-whistles version of the board was in its infancy, there was some discussion about whether the 'like' feature should be resurrected after a previous, disastrous attempt years ago (you could also 'dislike' posts in that version and it all ended in tantrums and tears - thanks Phart). I was agin it, due to the likelihood of normal message-board discourse being distorted by a flood of vacuous 'like-bait' posts (and because I knew I wouldn't be very popular). How wrong I was (apart from my relative lack of popularity). Instead of the board being awash with like-bait, we seem to be witnessing a wholly unexpected phenomenon - an Old-Firm-esque-of-yore domination of the TAMB league table by DoonTheSlope and Ormond. Now, I can think of three possible explanations for this: 1. Ormond and DTS continuously post fucking superb stuff that simply leaves the rest of us in the shade. 2. They have cunningly registered under alternative user-names with the sole purpose of liking themselves into a masturbatory orgy of apparent popularity. 3. There's a behind-the-scenes mutual liking going on that is quite frankly gay. And of course I don't mean 'gay' in the politically incorrect sense of mild disparagement; I mean full-on, mano-a-mano indulgence in the-love-that-once-dared-not-speak-its-name gay. Weighing up the probabilities, I think it's most likely option 1, in which case the rest of us need to up the quality of our posts. But I'm willing to be persuaded otherwise ... Edit: Perhaps we could have a poll?

    Funny how Alan always is MIA from threads like this, you know ones where the catastrophe that is the Conservative party are being discussed and how they have managed to create an economic and political mess of such gigantic proportions it almost defies belief. He will no doubt surface in the smoking ruin of it all to post a thread about an SNP Councillor who dropped a sweetie wrapper somewhere 10 years ago.

    Parklife wasn't talking about you; he explicitly says that he's referring to the poster with the highest number of reputation points. However, to be fair, thinking he was talking about you does make you come across as dumb as fuck.

    Lets be honest, Rangers are a cunt of a club. The (majority) of fans are bigoted cunts, the people in charge are moronic cunts, they just cant help themselves.

    1) International level is the pinnacle of football. With no disrespect to the English Championship but it's two tiers beneath. 2) Better management and the players from those countries know their jobs and they play to their strengths. Our players simply look like they have no idea what's being asked of them. 3) People can may not like this, but I don't care. Scotland as a nation has been Anglofied. We seem quite happy being a cuckold nation. We're submissive and meek and we have no passion left. England own us. An example, on Friday "STV" showed the England match, and on Tuesday they'll do the same. Not exactly a sign of a nation who loves itself.

    Some Celtic fans on this thread really need to take a look at themselves. Is it really too hard to just say the truth, the constant deflection and denial is pathetic.

    I wrote this on Indy eve - such an opportunity missed. "And so, here we are. As darkness falls over Scotland on this late summer evening, all the work has been done. The speeches speeched, the canvassing canvassed. There's one more opinion poll due out tonight - but who cares? As we go to the Polling Stations tomorrow, remember that it's about the future. The future of Scotland and the people who live here. We have had some glorious and not so glorious times as part of the union, but you can't make progress looking in the rear-view mirror. The past will always be. It happened. It's gone. This question is about us. It's about the confidence we have in ourselves to make something better. Something that takes us from where we are at the moment, a wealthy country with poor and hungry people, to a country that values its citizens and rewards them appropriately. Vote well, friends. May your choice reflect your hope and not your fear!"

    Was he booed onto the pitch on Friday because he’s a Rangers player? its not the first time this has happened and there was a fair amount of whataboutery the 2 pervious occasions with Black at Easter Road and Jack again at Pittodrie. The standard response I’ve had was “its because he’s crap” but I’ve seen players play for Scotland who are so bad they make Ryan Jack look world class and none of them were booed. Keep the club pish to your Saturday afternoons and turn up at Hampden to get behind EVERY player, I’d never boo a player for Scotland because I didn’t like him or his club domestically. Disgrace.

    You’re lot are just as bad, “Utter Vermin” both of you, you live for each other and basically couldn’t survive without each other. As previously mentioned 2 cheeks same arse, unlike most non old faces firm fans on here who seem to lean to hate Rangers more than Celtic I disagree with that as I despise you both equally. Merry Xmas x

    Murrayfield is a rugby stadium, it's not a good football stadium, it's not a great rugby stadium either and it's not our home. To remove us from Hampden would tear the heart out of the national side IMO. The SFA needs help, it needs torn apart and restructured tbh but we need our home and Murrayfield is not it.

    Out of the door with socks after Christmas where people had obviously felt I warranted a gift but not any thought. A bizarre set I got included a pair for each day of the week with the day stated on the sole - as I have no intention of taking my shoes off in the office to utilise my feet as a diary system saw no benefit in maintaining these in pairs post first wear. Last week the boiler was on the blink so the house was freezing and my good wife was pure ganting for a heaty up to the point relations were permissible on a week night. I got to the bedroom to find the old nighty top still fully buttoned, woolly socks left on and granny belly snapping pants pulled to one side. It had been a fortnight so I wasn’t complaining and thought I too would get away with wearing socks for the forthcoming activity. Unfortunately my wife takes one look and flaps the Bridget pants back in to position ‘What are you doing?’ I was about to protest about her attire when she threw me off guard by jumping out of bed and rummaging in my sock drawer. ‘You know I’m OCD and your trying to sh@g me wearing a Monday sock and a Saturday sock on a Thursday – how did you ever think that was going happen!’ My hopes were momentarily raised when she found the second Saturday sock but it was paired with a Christmas tree. Knowing I’d put a Thursday in the wash on Wednesday I decided to just go sleep as it’d be a good hour before my sock drawer was in order.

    I would have sympathy, but the Celtic away support are absolute scumbags. That mob run about the country breaking seats, invading pitches, singing and shouting sectarian abuse and being general clowns. Mostly with impunity. They cannae then expect anyone to listen to their greeting when the big bad polis arrest them. They should be arrested. I agree the treatment of football fans is shite, we are treated like weans. But the Celtic away support are one of the reasons why it's like that. And the rest of us have to suffer it.

    Generally Rangers fans think officials are pro Celtic, Celtic fans think officials are pro Rangers, every other teams fan know that the officials are pro Weegie. Saturdays decisions were outrageous, theres no way that the SFA can think that that is acceptable. Dallas should be sidelined/demoted for a long time, same for the linesman. The ref at McDiarmid isnt much better, I watched the game and just assumed that Weah was booked. Defoe should be banned for diving, you could say he anticipated contact and went down, I will call it what it is, he is a diving cheat. We almost have a title race, theres 4 teams doing very well, and creating a bit of excitement in our game, theres another 3 marooned at the bottom fighting for their lives, it should be exciting, but people are speaking about the refs being at best incompetent, or at worst, and most likely cheats. FFS SFA get it sorted, if they cant do the job, sack them, if you cant replace them here, get foreigners to do the job, they cant allow the same things to go wrong every month.

    I'm going to go against the popular opinion amongst our support and say that I don't think most of it is down to him being an Irish Catholic living in Scotland. Maybe for a small group of hun fucks but not the majority who dislike him. Clearly he didn't deserve to be hit with a coin but if Hearts hadn't had the goal chopped off leading to him winding their fans up then it wouldn't have happened. He was an Irish Catholic for the previous 93 minutes of the game and nothing was thrown. I think if a Scottish protestant manager had reacted the same then so would have the halfwit who threw the coin. I believe we have an arshole Hearts fan who shouldn't be going to football games, not an anti Irish Catholic bigot.

    Seems the utter incompetence and amateurism of the SFA has finally come home to roost. Look at what the Irish have lined up and the clarity they have shown in letting O’Neill know exactly how much they want him to stay, what plans they have and time he will get to see them through. Now compare and contrast to the total shambles, lack of plans and complete lack of any cohesion or professionalism demonstrated by the SFA and it’s virtually impossible now to see O’Neill swapping Northern Ireland for us. Why the hell would he even consider it? It would appear highly likely we’ll now end up with Lambert or, worse still, McLeish. No decent manager with any modicum of a reputation to protect is going to touch us with a bargepole given the (lack of) actions of the SFA since they sacked Strachan. The question of whether Strachan should have been sacked or not will always be a polarising one, but what cannot be argued is that they pulled the trigger with virtually no clue what they were going to do next. That was criminal and showed a complete abdication of responsibility and dereliction of duty. Where are we now then? Three months down the line and no further forward, in fact we’re actually further back with O’Neill having gone from hot favourite to being highly unlikely now to be appointed. The sad fact is I’m not sure I’d want any manager crazy enough to accept the job to actually be given it. It is now time for these cretins at the SFA to hand back their blazers and get as far away from our game as possible before they completely destroy it beyond any hope of repair (if they haven’t already). I’m utterly disgusted.

    😀, only someone who has been through the pain of building a Barbie House can truly understand the joy that a mere 4 bolts can bring. Talking of presents, my grand Xmas surprise gift to Mr Tdyer went complety pearshaped. I couldnt think what to get him, after 37 yrs together I exhausted every interesting gift a while back, and he is now getting too old for flowery shirts from TKmaxx. However he got a wee bonus from his employers this month as he has worked there 20 yrs so I decided to go over the top and booked flights and a hotel for the Munich beer festival. Instead of just putting the flight tickets in an envelope I bought a Xmas box and thought I would put a beer steiner in it along with a german sausage and an A4 sheet with a picture of a german flag and adolf hitler, rolled up into a scroll. I hadnt got round to putting the box together and I came home the other night to find him sitting in the kitchen eating the bloody sausage! He had found it in the fridge. So I had to go out and buy another one and put the box together. I wanted him to open the sausage and flag/hitler scroll first, as the flight tix were in the beer steiner. So , xmas morning comes along and I am sitting excited about the present. My youngest daughter starts passing things out from under the tree and hands MrTdyer a card . He opens it and read out to us all, ‘merry xmas dad, you can spend these on your trip to Germany ! ‘ Aargh , my other daughter had bought him Euros and her present got opened first 😩 After all that planning, and to make matters worse when he opened my present he opened the beer steiner first so the sausage and scroll were a complete anti climax. Next year it will be a flowery shirt from Tkmaxx.

    It can be dressed up, excused, called "understandable" or minimalised in any way folk like, but cutting away all the periphrastic commentaries ,one thing that is true is this:- Scotland fans booed a Scotland player, on his international debut, because of club-related issues. I don't think that's acceptable in any way, shape or form. Whether or not it has happened in days of yore or not. It was unacceptable then, and it's unacceptable now.
