    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! 🍻🇶🇦

    If you think the Scottish are bad, you should see those Irish mob that turn up for Scottish league games... 😛

    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?

    Agreed, if we can play 12 players every game I think we will be in with a decent shout.

    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.

    Cheers! You know what, ever since we found out we had Final tickets I’ve not really been as excited as I should’ve been. The closer the Final got, the closer they were to actually being there too so all this week has been a bit of a heid-fuck. Will we wear our kilts to the game? Will we put our Scotland tops on for Moscow on Saturday? Will we go completely neutral? Seriously wasn’t looking forward to being anywhere near Moscow, let alone being IN the stadium, where they had a chance of lifting the WC. See this morning though, don’t think I’ve ever been as excited for a fitba trip in a long time!! 😆🙌🏼🇭🇷

    I know you’re trying to be clever here and in some way, try and save face after making such a cunt of yourself about Hillsborough recently but I’m afraid in trying to equate the two events, it has simply taken you right back down cunt alley. For a start, I’m not sure who you mean by ‘ in relation to the charges than those handed out to the murdering cunts responsible for Heysel “ Do you mean the 14 Liverpool fans that were ultimately convicted ? Or the Belgian Officials that were convicted ? Or maybe you mean the Belgian Police Officer that was convicted ? What about the chap from the Belgian FA that was also convicted ? I think the only folk that got off were EUFA. Your post is all over the place and you seem to be comparing dog turds with cat piss to make a point. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are 15 or 16 and have had a bottle of Strongbow. 👍

    Colombians are tremendous! Especially after this!! A great wee moment, and the highlight of our 12 days following Poland. Basically what happened was the wee man was distraught after the Colombia game when Poland went out. The Colombians all gathered next to us and started consoling my son, patting his head, giving him souvenirs and chanting ‘Polska!’. The wife filmed it, it went on Twitter and went viral. I even took a call live from Bogotá yesterday for Colombian National Radio!! 👍🏼 On another note, Russia is an absolutely fantastic country to visit! Amazing hospitality, really friendly people, cheap, scorching weather! Cracking trip from beginning to end! 🇷🇺

    The ongoing 3 way Groundhog Day style ‘twat off’ between Celitic, Aberdeen and Rangers fans on here has hit epic levels 😂 On today’s games, I’m not exactly Lennon’s biggest fan but his celebration after Hibs 5th was very funny 😂 fair play to him.

    I can’t believe Robertson’s place in our team is even up for discussion. He should be the first name on the team sheet.

    The less rangers fans in any stadium the better it is for all concerned. Well done hibs, I’d happily see Aberdeen give rangers even leas than they get now if we could get away with it.

    Not this pish again . The only 'enemy of the cross' we should be talking about on here is James Forrest in a Scotland shirt.

    I think there is a strange three way going on between Tydie, Ormond and DTS. They mostly post a load of drivel but keep on giving each other one anyway.

    Just stop paying tax. You'll be amazed at how much you can save over a short period of time.
