I doubt they'll be any dodgy referee decisions with VAR.

To be honest we've had a good bit of fortune with VAR. 

Thats true… forgot about VAR.

VAR can't overturn dodgy freekicks on the edge of the box or corners that weren't corners.  All of which can lead to unjust goals.  Still fear that, even subconsciously, the ref for the game will be inclined to give any contentious or 50/50 decision their way

A really horrible thought.

Has the ref been announced?  The two variables that we can’t control are how much Ukraine are up for it and the ref.  The ref is the one that concerns me….  Let’s just say we have been subject to more than one dubious decision that could be interpreted as leading to an outcome that would please FIFA.

I'm hoping for a russian ref 😉

Anyone got the contact details for returning tickets? Also I have never received an email with by ticket bar code,, just money taken from my account 

I emailed supporters@scottishfa.co.uk because I cannot make the Armenia game on the rescheduled date. Got the refund within a couple of weeks

Individual ticket

Thanks, change of dates makes it unlikely I will be able to afford two trips within 10 days, probably only go if we qualified for the world cup. i bought the four ticket package.

Change of date does mean I can go to the new  double header in September so not all bad

I didn't see anyone post this, but Ukraine played a friendly yesterday - https://www.sofascore.com/ukraine-borussia-mgladbach/CabsbUb

Also, short but interesting video about the game here. Shows the Ukraine goals and an interview with their manager, Oleksandr Petrakov:

I think if anyone thought the hype about the rest of Europe/world wanting Ukraine to win was not real, you just need to look at the eurovison and know how we are going to be treated. If the game itself was not going to be hard enough let alone we now have a couple of players missing and the pressure of the world wanting us to lose.

Didn't you know that Ukraine are expected to win any event that they are involved in?. It's the done thing.

And you do realise Eurovision's winner has always been vote-driven unlike international football.

While I think you are correct in some respects, I do believe the noise inside Hampden will make it very clear to our team the outcome we want.

Anyone know when our squad will be announced?

Dykes, Chrsitie and Jacob Brown showed up early yesterday to do a mini-training camp yesterday, so players have clearly been told.

Imagine probably Thursday after the Europea League final is out the way.

The media out with Scotland and even some within Scotland will want a Ukraine win because this will create an easy story for the to write or talk about. If Scotland win, nobody will give a flying fuck about the Ukrainian football team anymore.

Real football fans know the score. The question was made on 5Live yesterday. They beat Scotland then they have to beat Wales, then they have to beat England. Where does it end?
 

For real fans there’s no debate. For 90 minutes they are the enemy and are a hurdle for our country making its own history. 23 years our country has had to do without world cups.
