  1. I was just thiking how different tournaments might be compared in terms of performances, and wondering if they could be ranked and if so, where might Euro 2020 come. What would be a 'good' tournament for Scotland? Chronologically Tournament - Results - Goals - (Highs & lows). (Goals against and elimination go without saying) 74 - WDD 3 goals (GD + 2) (Unbeaten; drew with Brazil.) 78 - WDL 5 goals (GD -1) (Archie Gemmill goal. Willie Johnston sent home.) 82 - WDL 8 goals (GD 0) (David Narey goal. Goals against.) 86 - DLL 1 goal (GD -2) (Uruguay game.) 90 - WLL 2 goals (GD -1) 92 - WLL 3 goals (GD 0) (Top 8 finish.) 96 - WDL 1 goal (GD -1) 98 - DLL 2 goals (GD -4) Ranking them from best to worst (based on results then GD) would give: Tournament - Results - Goals - (Highs & lows). 74 - WDD 3 goals (GD + 2) (Unbeaten; drew with Brazil.) 82 - WDL 8 goals (GD 0) (David Narey goal.) 78 - WDL 5 goals (GD -1) (Archie Gemmill goal. Willie Johnston sent home.) 96 - WDL 1 goal (GD -1) 92 - WLL 3 goals (GD 0) (Top 8 finish.) 90 - WLL 2 goals (GD -1) 86 - DLL 1 goal (GD -2) (Uruguay game.) 98 - DLL 2 goals (GD -4) It's maybe a toss-up between the last two about which was worse. I went on GD in the end. The last game was agonising in each case, in different ways. In some ways 86 was a Group of Death scenario where there were no weak teams (except us) but 1998 was hardly that. So the question is, what might be a good tournament for Scotland? On an earlier thread I suggested one goal and one win. That's relative to recent history. Relative to the above history, WDL and a 0 goal difference would be a top half performance!
