  1. I imagine most of you should have got this email this morning if you’ve signed up to email notifications for the Scotland National Team, but just Incase anyone misses in there inbox for whatever reason, here’s the following class message from Steve. “I think most of you, like me, will have woken-up this morning, looked at the date and wished the circumstances could have been very different. Thursday, March 26th had been circled in my wall planner from the moment I had the honour of becoming Scotland Head Coach. Truth be told, I had hoped we wouldn’t have needed the Nations League Play-Off route: I believed we could have finished higher than our eventual third place in the UEFA EURO 2020 qualification group. All those qualifying games seem far less important now, insignificant even, but this is the reality of the situation we find ourselves in. The world has changed in recent weeks and months and football, rightly, has had to take a step back as our government and our wonderful, brave and selfless NHS staff step-up their efforts to tackle a far greater opponent. This is a difficult letter to write because, as a father and grandfather there are far greater considerations in life right now and far greater responsibilities on all of us but, at the same time, I feel it important to recognise and show appreciation for the effort you all had gone to in ensuring our match against Israel would have been a sell-out. It would have been an incredibly proud night for me and the whole team and we would have given every ounce to be on that plane to Norway or Serbia. I know thousands of you had also booked onward travel, ever the optimists. By all accounts Budapest or Berlin would have been the unwitting hosts of Scotland fans awaiting connections to either Oslo or Belgrade. That sense of togetherness, loyalty and commitment is needed in our lives now, more than ever before. The First Minister and the Chief Medical Officer have been clear in outlining exactly what the nation must do to combat the virus that has become a global pandemic. I urge all of you to heed that advice: stay indoors, protect your family, and protect others. Stay home, save lives. Simple. Football is our national sport and its absence has had the same effect on me that it has had for every lover of the game in this country. The sooner we all take the advice on board to stay at home, the sooner we can get back to our own normality of midweek nights and weekend afternoons among friends, at our spiritual homes across the country. That is for later, as is our match against Israel, whenever the authorities consider it appropriate – and above all, safe – to resume football across the world. In the meantime, I will be thinking of you tonight and imagining what might have been and what could yet be. Stay healthy, stay safe, most importantly stay home.” - Steve Clarke.
  2. They done it with Erin Cuthbert last year when the women’s World Cup was coming around aswell... same old

    are you on the wind up? 😂 so you’ve watched all 102 apps for Celtic including his performances that got him in countless team of the group stages in the champions & europa league, Aswell as motm performances, and decided he can’t defend and apparently “kept absolutely nobody at bay”.... There’s a reason he’s currently Scotland’s most expensive transfer of all time and probably for a very long time for a fullback.. there’s also a reason he broke countless records at club level. and Strachan having faith in him at 19 years old to play him out of position and put in a fine shift at right back. Robertson is the better modern attacking fullback and going forward, but Tierney is far better than Robertson defensively. It isn’t under the borderline of others supporting his boyhood club, I could easily flip the same argument on yourself with the consistent amount of excuses for McBurnie been absolutely woeful and trying to overplay current celtic Scotland internationals being shite. Griffiths against Belgium for example and now Tierney apparently can’t defend despite it being his best attribute...but it proves zero help to any debate bar a dig to the person in the conversation. if your going to call out folk talking shite, make sure you’re not also chatting it.
  5. Said yesterday if billy gilmour isn’t called up to the main team I’ve officially lost all faith in Steve Clarke... I’ll echo that now and say the same again.. absolutely fuckin embarrassing decision. Israel and other countries must be laughing at our set up.. a national team still living in the past. 😴
  6. Almost as if that’s exactly why he should call him up...
  7. Had a look on here and it was nice to see everyone mutually agreeing with each other that Gilmour should be called up.. but of course the only user who has a problem with it is dohadeer.. in a sense I don’t know why I’m shocked. 2nd rate troll.
  8. Agreed with the stance on players who want to come out retirement if we make the euros. you weren’t wanting to play in the games that mattered so we certainly don’t want passengers who only want to help there career CV. Any player who comes out retirement IF, we make Euro 2020 can be told to fuck off. Simple as that.
  9. If Gilmour isn’t picked I’ll genuinely lose all faith In Clarke. he’s good so he’s old enough and we should be fuckin grateful we have a player of such a young age with his ability and thus should be rolling him into the team.
  10. Griffiths was Absolutely top class today, on it from start to finish and a hat trick to top off what he said about feeling the level needed to play for Scotland yesterday tops it all off. like I say i am feeling quite confident. Only Real concern is right back
  11. Leigh Griffiths saying in the media conference he’s ready for Scotland and it’ll be the icing on the cake if he makes it in the team that sends Scotland to Euro 2020. really nice words to hear from Griffiths about the national team, and it’s good to know he feels he’s up to the level required for the playoffs.
  12. I’ll say whatever I want, guess you haven’t heard of the old saying then for being optimistic... either that or it’s just you being a wet wipe as usual.
  13. He definitely isn’t overhyped in the slightest. His technical ability against Liverpool was a joy to watch so aye it was unbelievable Performance. As many others are saying he looks the real deal.
  14. You always wake up on the wrong side of the bed? Think I explained my reason of optimism in a post further up...
