  1. Unbelievable that TNS have a higher coefficient just for qualifying for Europe from a country where the five best teams all play in another league.
  2. Why are the New Saints playing the Lincoln Red Imps today? Is one of them seeded higher than Aberdeen?

    In fairness, I think he only has Hendry coming on whenever Paterson bombs up the pitch. So it would be just the 12 most of the time, which seems pretty fair considering the games being played at altitude.

    Peru - Match Thread

    In fairness, Panama aren't nearly as good as Peru, but I take your point. I think its a mental thing. From the coaches to the players to the fans we don't believe we're any good. Its been that way since Vogts. Same thing when our club teams play in Europe.

    Starting Lineup vs Peru

    With who we have left, whoever starts tomorrow ... If they perform well it could be the making of them. Peru are a properly good side. Much better than Mexico. They have the potential to take our young team to the cleaners. That said I'll be cheering them all the way. My half Peruvian son has divided loyalties for this one, but I'm hoping he's wearing his Scotland shirt by the final whistle.

    Who do you think will win world cup?

    It's possibly more wide open than I've ever known it to be... Lots of teams have a decent chance. I'd say Germany's probably the most likely.... For a long shot bet, I think Uruguay, Colombia and Peru all have an outside chance.

    First job for mcleish....

    Don't necessarily disagree with what NIcholas has to say about the rules or the reliance on eligibles. However, two things about this article really piss me off. - The fact that he's waited for ST to declare for Scotland to come out with this. This is a lad who's declared for us at a young age, after only a handful of games, but who's playing at one of the best teams in Europe. It's so different from the numerous "English" boys who've declared for us at 23/24 once they find themselves 1/3 of a way through their career and still at Derby, QPR or Bournemouth. - My question would be why didn't he choose one of those occasions to raise this point? But then again, when I think about it, that wouldn't be any better as he really doesn't know anything about their family situation or what makes someone who doesn't have a Scottish accent feel Scottish. My son doesn't have a Scottish accent, but try telling him that when Lee Griffiths got that second free kick or when we murdered them English at the rugby last week. By the way... English press wasting no time in trying to shoot ST down now he's made his decision... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-5465663/Manchester-Uniteds-Scott-McTominay-struggled-Crystal-Palace-test.html

    First job for mcleish....

    To be fair to the lad, it's a tough decision. Sounds like he's got a lot of Scottish family and I'd be delighted if he chose us. He's got a lot of colleagues that will be persuading him towards England though, so I can't begrudge him taking that option either. Good luck to him whatever he chooses.... Can't help thinking of Gabby Agbonlahor though who got 2 or 3 appearances for England, but could have been a star for Scotland across numerous campaigns. Hopefully McLeish's power of persuasion is better this time.

    European Nations League

    I think its a good draw for us. No pool is easy in European football, but those are two teams we should be expecting to get the upper hand on. Rep of Ireland got Wales and Denmark. I'd be a lot less confident if we'd landed in that pool.

    March 2018 friendly rumour.

    Hope you cleaned yourself up okay.

    Next Scotland Manager ?

    BBC are reporting that he's set for face to face talks next week, which sounds like more of a progression... http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42671440
  12. Last time the Ugly Sisters had a 6 goal reverse in the Premier League over a weekend? I think this may actually be a first. Great weekend of football!

    Malky's Squad

    I really think we need to try a new formation to accommodate both Tierney and Robertson on the left side.. 3-2-4-1 seems right for this type of game... gordon cooper berra tierney paterson robertson brown mcginn shinnie armstrong griffiths
  14. My son's half Scottish, half Peruvian. Couldn't actually believe they made it. So used to him having the worst of both worlds. Peru and Scotland do have similarities.
  15. Actually it's worse than that... apparently Bolivia fielded an ineligible player when they drew with Chile. Chile pointed this out to FIFA and they gave them the extra 2 points... However this also gave 3 extra points to Peru who had lost 2-0... no complaint and Chile are in the playoffs.
