  1. We are hosting the U19s Euros next week, beginning on Tuesday when Scotland play France in Paisley (the tournament is being held in Paisley, Glasgow, Perth and Stirling). We seem to have (going by name) got a tough draw : Holland, Norway and France in our group. There are 8 teams in this tournament and 5 teams will qualify for next year's World Cup. So even if we don't make the final or get out of the group, there is a very nice prize of going to the World Cup. Will you be going? And can the good run within the ladies continue and get us either out of the group or that WC spot. Also, the Mens u19s start tomorrow and will be held in Armenia, and not just even Armenia but Yerevan alone will host every game albeit in different stadiums. Ireland have qualified for this (along with hosting the u17s earlier this spring) which got me wondering, have the SFA ever put in a bid for a tournament like this (of course taking away the one that starts on Tuesday 😀), and why not? We could even host a u21 Euros considering the cities/stadiums that are available.
  2. Gorgie Loyal union flag, what a minter Hertz are.
  3. Far more Saltires in the Celtic away end (even if they are green and white) these days than you do in the Rangers one.
  4. Killie quite fortunate tonight to win yet Aberdeen should have won 4/5-0 and both teams end up with the same result. Funny old game and all that. Watched the full 90 minutes of the Killie game and Connah's Quay still look the same mob that they were in the Challenge Cup. Did they sign Usain Bolt? A very fast lad with little skill. Kilmarnock were the better side although their end product was pretty woeful, albeit CQ were defending incredibly deep (and dirty) how that game had so little yellow cards. If your hard Brexit was a fitba team, it would be these lads. The better team won, even if there was a bit of luck. I really like O'Donnell, but he looked off the pace tonight and way too chilled out. I doubt they under-estimated them, and it is the start of the season ; but Killie were a tad fortunate to win - considering they created little. Saying all that, they'll probably pump this mob 5-0 next week. Listening to Sportsound and all were raving about Gallacher. McInnes wanting that lad from Scunthorpe and McGeouch. Sounded as if the game should have been tied up, and whilst Aberdeen have been excellent in Europe under McInnes at home - they do tend to concede silly goals. It'll make next week a lot harder/tighter ; but surely they'll have enough to get through. All in all, four wins out of four is a decent start. Get that coefficient moving Scotia!
  5. Haven't seen either game, but clinical wins for Rangers and Celtic in the 90th minute now and a fantastic, away 3-1 win - Johnston scoring! I was in Glasgow airport yesterday around the time the Rangers team were flying out and seen Tavernier, Morelos and McGregor posing for pics with fans. Lots of broad Weegie Gers fans saying "Dinnae leave Fredo, you are a legend here at Ibrox. We need ye, and mind yer playing for a big club. Don't leave!'' and him replying with a ''YES'' 😄 McGregor looked utterly miserable. Not a huge fan of him on the park and didn't look amoured to be standing for pics saying very little when fans were trying to speak and wish him and the side well. Anyhoos, having seen Connah's Quay last year in the Challenge Cup and hearing their loud-mouth manager and their horrible tactics, I really really hope that Killie knock as many past them as possible (and have no injuries either). Also, Mon the Dons too! I'm not exactly willing Rangers on to win ; but fair dues to them but I really want to see the other three progress and if Rangers come along too fine, if not, fine too
  6. It'll be England with a token 1 or 2 Welsh/Norn Irish and maybe 3/4 Scots. Be interesting to see if any Scots would turn down the call?
  7. NZ-Canada on the red button and the highlights from last night came on. Jeez, how did we feck that up!
  8. Throughout the week I've heard Tom English, Peter Houston, Michael Stewart, Julie Fleeting and the Off The Balls productive but critical of the team. I think the BBC's lovely dovery coverage yes is a bit patronising ; but I think Sportsound and BBC/Radio Scotland on the whole have covered it well with respect/criticism when required too. Only one who's a bit soft on them would be Richard Gordon but he's not a pundit.
  9. I really hope we don't go down the ''Var robbed us'' route of anaylsing this match. Yes, we didn't get many breaks with VAR throughout the tournament nor the penalty and re-take ; but we blew that ourselves royally and to deflect from losing three goals in sixteen minutes is criminal and the reason we are going home. Kerr should stay on, but she surely has to look back at things and realise there were major errors made by herself and the coaching team. Even at 3-1, why didn't they start rolling the changes, slow the game right down. There was a hype about it, and quite rightly so - our first WC for 21 years and the Womens first one ever. Look at how far the Scottish Womens team have come in 15-20 years is breathtaking so they deserve credit and even a bit of hype. I'll be disappointed if once the dust is settled and they look back on this, they don't all realise that they blew it last night. And they re-group work on the areas we are poor in for the next campaign. They talk about learning from experience/caps under your belt etc, so hopefully last night was an incredibly harsh lesson for the group. There's a good wee squad there and we will hopefully push on in the qualifiers for the Euros. Lessons to be learned, and yes the ref was horrendous and quite rightly should be criticised for an inept performance ; but she isn't the reason we lost the match.
  10. VAR has serious problems and the ref was horrendous, but we can't blame it for all our misfortune tonight. In all three games, we have been very late at making changes. Why did we make our first change(s) in about the 85th minute. Surely at 3-0, you should be looking to slow the game down and change some of the runners. The team have done amazing just to qualify, it's even harder to qualify for a Women's World Cup than the Mens and there were good European teams not there ; but we really have no one to blame but ourselves for crashing out. There's a decent nucleus of players there though. And I hope we can go from strength to strength and they have inspired some to play the game, and go along to their qualifiers in August. Back-to-back tournaments is a great achievement, but I hope they can really push on and learn from the mistakes of last night. We're hosting the U19 Euros as well in July, so we'll see if there is a bit more talent coming through. There's also a great opportunity to qualify for the U20s World Cup. 8 teams, 2 groups and 5 qualify for the World Cup. Two groups ; four teams - go through to semi finals whilst the two 3rd placed teams playoff for the last WC spot. I'm guessing by looking at the names of the teams in our group, we have a difficult draw but if we can get through the group or in to the playoff for the last WC spot and win that then it would surely be another great achievement for the ladies game. As disappointing as crashing out has been tonight, and some of the play/decision making has been at times throughout the WC, there is certainly been a lot of excitement and there's a side there alright. A lot to be positive about and to push on for, and whilst it feels like a defeat and we did blow it tonight, I hope folk get behind them and go to the qualifiers. They made mistakes, but let's hope we can learn and move on from this.
  11. And to save the penalty and have it re-taken takes it to another level. MENTAL.
  12. Jesus christ! Horrendous. Find new ways. How can you blow a 3-0 lead in 15 minutes! No changes until the 80th minute.
  13. What a wee star Erin is! Well done Scotland. Let's hope no one gets injured though, these Argentinians are a bit of a mob.
