  1. Just been looking at the UEFA site and didn't realise the initial sales period is buying tickets blind for matches you don't know who will be contesting them. There is a second window in December once the draw is made where you can enter a ballot for your team - I can't imagine there would be loads available? I now take my 12 year old boy to all the matches. I have 14 points which I would imagine would be sufficient for tickets for a couple of the matches but unfortunately he will only be on 11 once the tournament comes around and that won't be enough. So frustrating as he should be on 13 points but I messed up a home match ticket order in 2021 meaning he lost out on 2 points - feeling pretty guilty about that now 🙈. I chose not to take tickets for Euro 2021 as he couldn't go then either. Now it looks like I'll have the same dilemma if I don't get lucky in the UEFA ballot!
  2. The Harry Kane song is a total embarrassment. Any grown man singing that should be ashamed of themselves.
  3. I've been reading the 'retirement' thread with interest and wondered if anyone has successfully changed career over the years. I'm 43 years old, work as a dentist and I've decided I'm going to chuck it next year and do something else. It's quite daunting the thought of doing something different from all you've ever known, and also the fact I'll be taking a significant pay cut but it's something I've thought about for a number of years now and when you begin to realise how unhappy you are in your job and that you're not getting any younger, then it's finally time to do something about it. I've been seeing a careers coach of sorts and have enjoyed the process so far but as much as it's got me thinking and planning, I still feel nowhere near to what I would like to do. There's plenty of decent careers out there that don't require years of retraining but it's still difficult narrowing out down to a job that i can hopefully enjoy, or at worst, not dislike! Any advice welcome 😁
  4. Anyone in the march to the stadium might have been lucky enough to see the team arrive in the bus. Was a bit disappointed not one of the players could muster up a wave to my 10yr old son as he stood waving to them passing. Pricks
  5. The love in with Clarke is bizarre. McLeish got us to the Euros playoffs and Clarke got us over the line. Other than that he's fucked the euros, fucked the last nations league, fucked the Ukraine play off and fucked this tonight against a team that has only ever scored 2 nations league goals.....with a better set of players than any of his predecessors. If that was McLeish tonight everyone would be up in arms, but apparently we're making progress 🤔
  6. Completely agree with the opinions on Robertson in that he is not captain material. As some have alluded to, i just can't imagine any other national captain swigging from a bottle of beer on an open top bus 3 days before one of the biggest matches in their country's recent history. It's an awful example to set. I'm an amateur runner at best, had a marathon on Saturday, would have loved a beer or two last Wednesday for the match but refrained. FFS, if i can stay tee total for a race I'm sure the captain of our team can hold off for a week or two. Ps. He did not have an abscess at the time of the Kazakhstan match. He was getting recurring bother from his wisdom tooth which required him to get it surgically removed at some point. He elected to get it done during the next international window but didn't necessarily need it done then. I'm a dentist, he could have waited a few months until the season was over. Personally, I can't stand him. He's full of sound bytes but does not walk the walk.
  7. We were miles off it tonight. Shouldn't really be a surprise when our captain would prefer to party 3 days before a WC play off. Then you've other players seen drinking on holiday between the season ending and tonight. Do you think the Ukrainian players were doing this in the past month?? No chance! At this level you can't get away with losing 1% and it showed. I'm sure some happy clappers will be along to tell us that the players deserve some down time etc etc. Nonsense! Arguably Scotland's biggest match in a long time and every player should have been putting absolutely everything in their favour to give a top performance. Feel massively let down.
  8. I'll be surprised if it's more than 5k. We were all booked to head down in March but none of us are now going. I would normally be buzzing to head for a game of this magnitude but I'm feeling a bit of apathy towards it.....probably still just bitter I've just missed out on a ticket.
  9. I'll have 1 official scotland ticket to sell face value. Bought one for myself (I'm on 14 pts) but my 10yr old son is on 11 points so couldn't get one for him in the end. Ended up buying 2 on ticketmaster instead as i obviously need to sit with him.
  10. I'll say it again. It's ridiculous a one off play-off final is not only played in a non neutral ground but the fact that it's not an even ticket split.
  11. I think we'll obviously take a decent support but probably a little less than usual given we've potentially Wales away too. Hoping it might drop to 11 points. Although I'm pretty sure spare tickets shouldn't be a problem to come by for this match
  12. Trying to weigh up whether i should watch our potential world cup play off final in Stockholm or not. I'm in Sweden that weekend and I'm due to fly home during the match. I think I'll just miss out on a ticket so I'm accepting I'll not go to Wales, however I definitely can't miss watching the game on tv. This means it's likely I'll have to either stay an extra night in Stockholm or maybe try and get an earlier flight home to at least watch the game in Scotland. Basically, are there any TA on here who could recommend somewhere that'll not be too terrible to watch the match in Stockholm? An already rearranged expensive trip to Sweden will cost me another £500 minimum to stay another night/change flights. I'd rather only pay this if i can at least know I'll have somewhere OK to watch it. Cheers
  13. Couldn't agree more. The second draw was completely needless 🙈
  14. Well as it stands you could argue more members will miss out overall across the 2 potential matches than they would if it was 50/50 both games.
  15. Eh?I'm complaining about the ticket allocation from a scotland point of view. I'm citing the fact that certain teams potentially having to play 2 away games in stadiums with few of their fans is unfair in my opinion.
