  1. I find it incredible that we have a Government on the verge of collapse, a non-existent opposition and silence from the Holyrood branch offices and people in Scotland still don't think we should be an independent country. Indy should be polling 60%+

    Four Game Ticket Package

    I'm sure this will affect the pricing too!
  3. He never should have been given that position in the first place. Total buffoon of a man
  4. To be fair, that would actually explain a lot about how Westminster has been handling Brexit negotiations

    Croatia support thread

    If they trash an IKEA and an ambulance when they win, what will they do once they get beat..? Realistically the final is tomorrow. France or Belgium will comfortably see off either Croatia or England.

    France v Croatia in the final.
  7. TBC according to Wiki - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2026_FIFA_World_Cup#Qualification
  8. Will be interesting to see how they determine automatic qualifying for 2026. They might just let all 3 hosts in considering it's an expanded tournament.
  9. Can't see that being an issue as the UK / Britain has never existed as far as FIFA is concerned. Makes more sense than a stand-alone England bid after finishing last for 2018. I'm sure having the options of including some of Hampden, Celtic Park, Ibrox, Murrayfield, Millennium as options would boost chances. I think joint bids will become the norm going forward as these major sporting events are so incredibly expensive to host.
  10. Seconded. We usually go for a weekend most years. It's like a cleaner version of Scotland with loads of bikes.
  11. Did we really expect anything better from Tory vermin? Lowest of the low.
  12. With the World Cup approaching I'm sure we'll be treated to many contributions to this thread from the various punditry teams.

    Squad for Mexico and Peru

    It's also a chance for the coaching staff to see new players in training too. Not all about the game at this stage.

    I watched this game and the police were clearly anticipating this. Within seconds they were in position, was really impressive

    HSV fans didn't take being relegated too well.

    Squad for Mexico and Peru

    I think it's safe to say we'll see a highly experimental squad for these 2 fixtures, far from what we'd consider our full strength team. Although with the 2 opponents effectively trialling World Cup squads, hopefully the results aren't too demoarlising...

    What I find most encouraging (and without downplaying Scottish football too much) is that a big team like Hamburg is even looking at Scottish teams in the first place for players. Good luck to him. I'm sure this will do wonders for development. I'm sure loads of Hamburg players will have a relegation clause in their contract and will be offskie if they go down so hopefully this means he'll get game time.

    Match Thread - Costa Rica

    Just back from the game. By no means a classic with a highly experimental squad with lots of changes and what were effectively auditions for some players. Thoughts • McDonald way off the pace and very uninspiring • Back 5 worked well with the full backs pressing. Even pleased to see both caught offside! • Far too defensive. So many players first instinct was to play back every time, even after going a goal down. • Stuart Armstrong & Callum McGregor significantly changed the pace when they came on and pressed forward a lot • Would have liked to have seen one of the other goalkeepers get a half Far from a full strength team but that’s what friendlies are for. Another game to prepare for on Tuesday to test more options though

    Starting XI Costa Rica

    Think it's safe to say we'll see subs galore on both games - i.e. the whole point of friendlies.

    First Scotland games

    10 year gap between my games: First Home: Scotland 1-0 Australia in 1996 First Away: Lithuania 1-2 Scotland in 2006.

    Charlie Mulgrew new captain

    Makes sense. Captain of his club and loads of Scotland caps.
