  1. Think home advantage might nick it for England. Might go all the way. I expect a cagey game.
  2. Think I'm leaving here for an extended period. There's a heavy amount of nutters on here. Don't blame folk venting especially the night but FFS. My final 2 cents: 1. We are not good enough and were by far the worst team in our group. Rode our luck getting there but TBH qualifying is our high water mark. 2. There's too much blind loyalty in the fanbase and the thought that we can do better than expected - see the pre-tournament predictions thread as a case study. 3. The manager is a half decent club manager. However: 1 decent result (draw) with some tactical wins against our biggest rival is fine. But also 2 games where he's totally blew it. Tonight - sit off and let Modric dictate the pace of the game, persist with underperforming Armstrong (awful tonight), Not replacing beatliee SOD + Dykes. An off form Christie starting in our first match... We have some decent young players coming through which gives us future hope but we also continually persist with some haddies that are clearly not good enough. I wish Steve Clarke all the best and it's a tough gig - you can only pish with the tadger given to you. But i feel he is somewhat out his depth and too ponderous to make changes when things are not working. Onwards and upwards hopefully. Keep the faith ๐Ÿ’™
  3. Quite frankly I'm shiteing masel. Strange mix of enthusiasm, dread and nerves.
  4. Surely if you play 3 at the back you need wing backs that offer something offensively? Robertson works well but SOD offers nothing going forward on the right side and heโ€™s not exactly solid in defense. It was clear as day in the past and vs Luxembourg. Forrest or Patterson would surely bring a better balance to the team. Itโ€™s easy to have a post game autopsy but I feel the manager made some seriously bad calls today - selection and shape. I get the feeling we will only see the younger players against Croatia and it will likely be too late by then to make a difference.
  5. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Great music as well. Burley the comedian eh ๐Ÿง
  6. Scotland 1 Czech Republic 1 England 3 Scotland 0 Scotland 0 Croatia 1
  7. Personally, I'd just like to take the opportunity to say get it right up yeez Shout outs to: The mentally challenged Canadian plumber The Inverclyde man of many logins (strangely quiet recently) Most of our friends in the North East The Canadian David Koresh Onwards and upwards. Now onto the Euros. Slainte ๐Ÿ˜
  8. Mate of a mate works with the Scottish government and said itโ€™s ok and linked me up to this part online: If you fly from abroad to an airport in England, you must quarantine in a hotel in England if you have travelled through an area of acute risk during the 10 days before you arrive in England. You can find a list of countries on the acute list (red list) on To get help booking hotels in England, use the quarantine hotel booking service. If you have not travelled through one of these acute risk areas in the 10 days before arriving in England, you will not need to quarantine in a hotel. Instead, you must self-isolate for 10 days (11 nights), either at home or anywhere else you are planning to stay in Scotland, unless you are exempt. Only a small number of people, such as those travelling for essential work, are exempt. Looks doable then. Thanks for the replies.
  9. Iโ€™m in Vietnam which is fine and would be looking to transit through either Singapore or Istanbul which are not on the lists. I canโ€™t get into Philippines at all right now sadly.
  10. I'm in SE Asia. Is it in theory possible to fly back to England then train it up the road to avoid the compulsory hotel quarantine in Scotland? I know the home quarantine would still be a thing but I'd rather spend 10 days in the house than some hotel. Details online are pretty sketchy. Any advice is appreciated.
