  1. Great vid! Very rousing stuff, feeling pumped now!
  2. Yeh, give it a few decades first! Oh wait..
  3. WTF was McTom doing at the end there? We were launching a final offensive with Israel in retreat, and when it came back to him he just passed it back with zero urgency, and the game fizzled out with the ball passing back and forth in defence!
  4. Good point! But it's possible that club games will get back underway before internationals.
  5. I guess the silver lining in all of this is that when we start playing competitive games again hopefully our new wonder kid Gilmour will have settled into the Chelsea team and will be more ready for his chance to take our midfield by storm.
  6. Thanks so much Nobby. I'm actually heading to London next week. Let me know what part you're in.
  7. A general sense of superiority and ownership. Well I didn't specifically say it was about being in the union. But I don't think it's a coincidence that a country that's not quite a country and is in the unusual position of being 'governed' by a neighbouring country suffers from a failure mentality. It's really not a normal position to be in in the first place. The British are well known for their psychological warfare so due to our position in relation to them (geographically, politically, socially, etc) I have no doubt that our national psyche bears the burden. An everyday exam
  8. We weren't successful. We had better players at the time but never even made it past the group stage of any tournament, often due to calamitous results. I would suggest that it's 'lazy', and self defeating to say that we definitely have a 'serious psychological problem' but to assume that we've mainly just invented it ourselves. See above, we had great players in previous decades but still never achieved anything on a competitive level beyond qualifying for tournaments. And if we really don't give a toss about England then why are they regularly referenced on this forum, us
  9. Well for starters they are all technically British athletes.
  10. As daft as international eligibility may be, you still only have at your disposal players with a Scottish link, whereas with club football you can buy literally any player on earth that your club can afford. So from this point of view, supporting a club team is basically just supporting a business.
  11. Yeh but at the end of the day it's all about money and what players you can afford. It's just a big business. With international football it's different because the only players you have at your disposal are the ones eligible to play for their country.
  12. They want us to say that about ourselves. I think we should always challenge that belief.
  13. Totally agree. And can never get my head around how people can loath the opposite side of their city so much.
  14. I believe that Scotland has taken the fullest force of England's psychological shaming and humiliation over the years as they have perceived Scotland as their biggest threat. That rugby match was a good example of Scotland ALMOST beating England. As was our last football match against them. I would argue that these are prime examples of us lacking belief.
