  1. Listen I'm not saying we should go out to lose these games but.....If we finish bottom of the group we are relegated for the next edition of the Nations League, that would put us in with the worst sides in Europe. The overall winner of that bunch would qualify for the World Cup, qualifying in the traditional way would either mean topping the group (no chance) or finishing second and getting through a play-off (pretty unlikely). If we did finish bottom this time there's still a chance to qualify for Euro 2020 by finishing 2nd in the traditional group stage, difficult but easier than having to win a play-off as well. OK losing games would drop the ranking for that group stage but so does arranging games with Holland, Mexico, Peru, Belgium and probably Portugal. Even if teams aren't going to go out and deliberately lose from the off in this new Nations League format, there will be games later on where a team cant qualify for the play-offs but could be relegated. Now whats the point in playing to win if losing gives you a better chance of qualification next time around? You might want to ask the Belgians after the World Cup about that question. And that for me is the biggest problem with this new format, maybe I'm wrong as I've not seen anyone else pick up on it, but when you open the doors of qualification to the shittiest teams don't be surprised if there's a bad smell in the air.

    Was Januzaj asleep at the team meeting?
  3. I'm coming to the conclusion that if you chapped on 11 random doors, the occupants would be favourites to play a Scottish team in Europe at this time of year. And BTW if it turned out they were all blokes I'd bet my house on it.

    New Strip Launch

    Until I see them first hand I'm reserving judgement on whether to buy but first impressions are.... Home top, not mad keen on the white sleeves but it's the plain panel up the sides that spoils it for me, would have preferred the lines/tartan design to go right round. Liking return to white shorts but prefer red socks. Also does the long sleeved top have white sleeves all the way down or does it revert back to blue? Away top, nothing against pink but like many have said looks like a training top, too plain for my liking.

    New Kit

    Get it out before Christmas and there's maybe a slight chance that some kids might find it under the tree. It would make a change from seeing hunders of wee Messis and Ronaldos running about.

    Hoolies

    I got scunnered when I saw how the words on the big screen had almost no relation to the ones I'd been singing for the last decade.

    Hoolies

    I was in there waiting ages for some scran, when a TA member approached the counter and said to the staff "there's a riot going outside". So I was a little perturbed when the doors flew open and a few neds burst in dressed in the casual manner. One of them proceeded to start chucking chairs, trays, booting doors and shouting abuse concerning our southern neighbours. It was then that the same guy who had warned of the riot noticed this clown was only a young (word that rhymes with stunt) and told him to behave in no uncertain terms. Around this point the manageress, who seemed unphased by this turn of events, also went towards the muppet and things quietened down. Shortly after that the Polis arrived on the scene, whether the perpetrators were lifted or legged it I'm not sure. I heard someone else in the queue saying that the neds had launched an unprovoked attack on some English guys, I don't know if this was inside or out. Finally got some food, whilst eating saw one of the other staff mopping the floor, it may have been blood or perhaps it was coke, again I can't confirm which. On reflection wished I'd stopped at a chip van.

    Spot on mate, it's not like our anthem defines us by how we crushed the English in a battle centuries ago........
