    Serious question about Ryan Jack

    All Rangers players is a better one though.

    Serious question about Ryan Jack

    Funny with all the old firm stuff that goes on the most abuse on this forum is always from petty Aberdeen fans.

    Serious question about Ryan Jack

    In my time I have seen a multitude of abhorrently bad players playing for Scotland and none of them were booed for “being shite”. Absolute nonsense.

    I’m the complaininant here and I’ve neber done that. ”Whataboutery” at its finest.

    Serious question about Ryan Jack

    Was he booed onto the pitch on Friday because he’s a Rangers player? its not the first time this has happened and there was a fair amount of whataboutery the 2 pervious occasions with Black at Easter Road and Jack again at Pittodrie. The standard response I’ve had was “its because he’s crap” but I’ve seen players play for Scotland who are so bad they make Ryan Jack look world class and none of them were booed. Keep the club pish to your Saturday afternoons and turn up at Hampden to get behind EVERY player, I’d never boo a player for Scotland because I didn’t like him or his club domestically. Disgrace.

    They played defensively with the 5 and low block until they went behind, didn’t open up and go “toe to toe” until they were losing late in the game.

    Funny that McGinn never got that abuse in the first half...

    The fans that booed Jack coming on are a disgrace btw, no Scotland player should be booed because of what club they play for. Genuine apathy to the team and the game, don’t even feel that down because I genuinely have no connection to this Scotland “team” embarrassing performance.

    Scotland u21 squad

    I like Johnston too, Middleton (who did really well for the 19’s tonight) plays the same position and is the same age as Johnston and offers something different. Johnston likes to cut in and drag full-backs inside and Middleton is more old fashioned and bombs down the line to deliver with a natural left out. Its a nice thought that maybe these 2 will provide different types of options on that side in years to come perhaps even going into the senior set-up. And we can change depending on the opposition we are up against.

    Scotland u21 squad

    Porteus and Bates with McCrorie sitting in front is really solid at 21’s level and I’d like to see that pairing tested against the stronger sides, Hornby has potential to be our first really regular 21’s goalscorer since Rhodes and we don’t lack midfield talent at this level either (I really rate Gilmour and think he’s destined for the top). Wasn’t a sparkling performance but quite excited to see how this group develops especially with so many players missing tonight. Would be good to have a competitive 21’s group for the first time in a long while, it’s been our biggest problem as a national set-up.

    Scottish Players in Action 18/19

    Not really no, am I missing something?

    Scottish Players in Action 18/19

    It worries me how many off form players we have going into this window, the Celtic core that served us well in the second half of the last campaign seems to be breaking up and Robertson aside we have very few core members of our squad performing at a consistently high level. Even our midfield which used to be nailed on to be trusted with a settled 3 seems to be disjointed in terms of who we go with and being in-form.

    Article about Scottish vs Norwegian supporter culture

    Hi Sindre, that’s a very interesting topic and welcome to the forum! The Scots are world champions at talking ourselves down so if you come across pessimists about our support then don’t be surprised. I think home attendances and our overall feeling for the national team are not inexplicably linked, for instance Scotland actually has (per capita) the best attended domestic top division in Europe and has a disproportionately high number of Football supporters. Scotland and Norway are probably similar in that we’re both waiting for that magical moment where we can reach a major tournament and capture the imagination of the nation again, there’s an undoubted pessimism about the teams failings and Football in Scotland in general but I still think we’re on cusp of something perhaps in the euros. Seems like you need a football revolution in Norway to get people excited again.

    BBC Documentary about Argentina 1978

    I’m 24 and it seems almost unthinkable to me what Scotland being in a major tournament is actually like. Its almost like it’s in the back of my head that we just won’t ever do it again, I don’t think I even feel the crushing disappointment that I used to when we inevitably don’t qualify. The energy of the country playing in a World Cup looked incredible. Must have been some experience.
