    Not everyone who will opt not to have a third / fourth / fifth vaccine will belong to this category, though.

    Personally I'm not getting a 3rd. The continual shifting of the goalposts has went on long enough. If I'm excluded from society or lose my job then so be it, but the thought of 3 or 4 vaccines in the space of a year for someone fit and healthy really is beyond the pale imo

    This. The midfield was non existent against Ukraine and Hungary as well. And I mean that in a very literal way - we're playing without a recognisable midfield. There's a massive empty space in the middle of the pitch where the midfield should be. At times against Ukraine on Friday we had a line of 4 at the back and a straight line of 6 up the pitch. It's really weird and it isn't working. The players look like they don't really know what they're meant to be doing. It comes across as an experimental mess - and a huge part of that is down to a manager who seem doesn't know how to get the most out of the players we have.  

    Pedro talks a good game and has a good CV but his problem is chopping and changing the starting eleven too much. It was almost a completely different defence from Fridays game to last nights. Robertson and Boyle are not up to standards required and I’d include Howard and a few others in that.

    I see your man GordonS is all over the Twitter comments stating ‘Scotland weren’t poor tonight’. Yes, this Spain side might well be very good but the game last night matches our heaviest ever defeat I believe? To put it in context the mens team have never been beaten by 8 goals in the entire 100+ year history of football. It’s a dreadful result.

    Scotland were piss poor last night, some of the defending was hilariously bad. That goal where the Spanish lassie glided past 3 or 4 Scottish players leaving a few on their arse was so bad. As was Sophie Howard dithering with the ball about 4 years from goal. Not even the most ardent Scotland fan could call that anything but poor

    Do we not have the players to at least make us hard to beat? To lose 8 goals against anyone is shocking. A lot of the blame for this defeat surely has to lie at the manager’s door.

    It was all going so well for the first 18 mins...

    The defence had a shocker tonight. Even steady heads like Corsie and Docherty were all at sea. We missed Beattie at the back. Midfield was non existent leading to the likes of Cuthbert and Evans getting no spark to be creative. A blessing really that it was "only" 8-0 Spain dominated and could easily have won 13-0. Not a single Spain player looked knackered at the end and I dont believe they were playing to their full pelt. We dodged a bullet and that's embarrassing to say after an 8-0 defeat

    I was just thinking that. It seems a very long time ago that Scotland were 3-0 up and cruising v Argentina in the World Cup finals. I don’t think they’ve recovered from that late capitulation. The commentators said earlier that Scotland haven’t gone backwards, I completely disagree.

    That was the catalyst imo, we should never have been close to drawing that game. Then Shelley Kerr had her meltdown, knocked players confidence then we waited about a year for a permanent manager. All that and crap squad members have resulted in us going backwards.

    That was a decent game.  You follow this closer than I do.  How come we've gone backwards?  

    I think the whole Shelley Kerr fallout had a big part of it, then the long wait for a new manager. Players like Boyle, Howard, Robertson should be nowhere near the starting eleven

    Unbelievably she was in an England squad a few years back, nowhere near that standard now. 

    That blows my mind. Shes never impressed me at all. Westrup from rangers looks a better option

    Have barely been out of our half, yet. Spain have improved to a ridiculous degree since we beat them at the Euros. Guessing the likes of Real/Barcelona/Bilbao have gone professional or something.

    Barcelona won the womens champions league earlier this season. I was suprised they swatted aside Chelsea so easy as they were nothing spectacular when I saw them play Glasgow city a few years back

    England 5 up already inside 18 minutes against Latvia.

    This could easily be a 20-0 game if they want it to be.

    England seem to have been having cricket scorelines for ages now

  8. Having a look on the likes of Glasgow Live is always “top banter” when it comes to covid. People calling for a lockdown, do these people not know the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results?

    Same with the face mask brigade, do they not know that most of the masks people wear say on the packaging that they’re basically ineffective in preventing the spread of covid

    we all know they’ll be a booster/jab in a couple of months for the moronic variant, where does the madness stop?
