  1. It's very much like Mexico '86. We've lost the first 2 games but still have a dug's chance to go through if we can beat Argentina (that time it was Uruguay). Hopefully no Stevie Nicol type sitters tonight!
  2. Tickets are available at Hampden porta cabins outside West Stand but advise anyone to go as early as possible as the queues are a nightmare just before kick off
  3. definitely looking a bit better now.
  4. is there a radio campaign this time? If Clarke hadn't been signed this could have been 10K.
  5. It’ll still be brilliant next week. 3700 are going to create a great atmosphere in the city and numbers will return
  6. I had to get 4 extra tickets for our group and the sales are looking a lot better. The north stand will be a certain sell out and the sections that are on sale at each end are beginning to fill up really well (they tend to release the tickets section by section as the ones next to them fill up). A bit of radio publicity should push the crowd to a respectable level.
  7. Pretty grim actually. hearing from Belgians that 1000 left in away end. I’ve never experienced such disconnect between the fans and the SFA / Manager as I did at the last game (San Marino). At least the right thing has been done now. Clarke’s appointment came too late for the away game as it’s time off work, flights, hotel and tickets to organise although I’m sure it will make a significant difference to the Cyprus crowd (and atmosphere). It’s up the those who do travel to make as much noise as possible and really get behind the team. The crowds will return and we’ll soon be scrambling for tickets again.
  8. Brilliant. Now let's get started in this campaign. Looking forward to Hampden and Brussels now!
  9. If there was an incident at the San Marino game (as was widely reported) I would imagine there may have been due process to be followed before a parting of ways that cost the SFA sfa.
  10. A new manager CAN make a massive difference. We were 88th in the world when Bertie left and Walter Smith took over. Complete nonentities were getting a game and we looked in disarray. The first game, in the San Siro, would have been a disaster if Bertie had stayed and although the game was eventually lost 2-0 the difference in organisation and mentality was amazing. Smith's stock was high at the time and the support was enormous (inflated by having a new manager). Although Smith became a wee bit defensive it was a complete turnaround and marked the start of a much better period for the national team.
  11. It's all very sad to be honest however it is definitely the right decision. Michael Stewart, who I normally can't stand, surprisingly sums things up nicely in my view "I’d also add that we should stop devaluing our national team with This is an exciting squad of players, yes it’s not going to be easy but the potential rewards, which are very possible of achieving, are immense. Legendary status awaits someone
  12. Alex Neil - whatever it takes
