  1. Was a good squad when we look at the the teams Was only 11 when we played in this group but remember this game. Looking at Group now we had a bit of luck in the last game Bulgaria drawing with romania and the game before romania beating Switzerland but looking back it was a very good squad.
  2. Looks likely it will be played behind closed doors nows
  3. I would love to have ajer at centre back would improve our team.
  4. Which is totally bizarre when you think about it do we have the biggest variance in the world between quality of midfield and quality of defence. I’m running through teams and can’t think of many.
  5. our midfield looks the best it’s been for decades - mctominay Christie McGinn McGregor Armstrong Fraser Forrest Gilmour value of these 8 players must be close to 200 million
  6. Marshall Robertson Palmer Cooper Hanley Mctominay Mcgregor Armstrong Forrest Fraser Griffiths That would make our bench not to bad either with the likes of Christie mcburnie Naismith fleck Jack McLean and Burke
  7. He’s mentioned loads of times that he wants to get back into the scotland squad I would argue he is one of our most committed players.
  8. I would agree that’s why I would start him with mcburnie and naismith to come on if we are struggling at any point. His biggest asset is probably his link up play and not the goals anyway. The point I was trying to make was that people are quoting mcburnies record for scotland which are mostly sub appearances I think he gets unfair criticism and I think he could be an important player in the future.
  9. The stat is correct he’s played 19 times for scotland has 4 goals 2 were free kicks against england the other 2 were goals against Slovenia away and the other Malta at home thus 2 goals from open play in 19 games. I’m glad griffiths is back he will be a real asset in these games and I have been impressed by his link up play also recently thus the likes of Armstrong Forrest etc will benefit.
  10. 2 goals from open play in 19 games is hardly a good record . In saying that I think he should start based on current form with mcburnie to come on if needed.
  11. I seem to be the only person who applied originally was unsuccessful and have had no emails including in junk lol. If Scotland make it hope to get tickets through travel club but only on 10 points so if we only get allocated 3000 tickets looks like I may be watching on tv.
  12. I have 10 points so far going by website that puts me about 3725th
  13. If we are lucky enough to qualify how many points would be needed to get a ticket to Scotland v Czech Republic / Croatia / England games?
  14. I would play an in form Leigh Griffiths against Israel think he is our best option. Don’t get the anti mcburnie feeling however griffiths has scored 2 goals from open play in 19 caps one of which was against Malta the other Slovenia away. he had 0 goals in 14 games until England game and many more mins on the pitch without scoring than mcburnie but can’t remember any criticism for his lack of goals. Griffiths has had good games but also soon really poor games for example in the 3-0 defeat by england where an easy ball to snodgrass would have put him through or Slovenia at home missed loads of chances subbed after 50 mins. Overall all though I would start him and have mcburnie Naismith and shankland on the bench if needed later in the game.
  15. Seems their is quite a big variance as to how long broken ankle takes to heal 13 weeks and 4 days till the game. At least we have Armstrong and Christie who can play that role but will be a big miss if he’s out.
  16. with about a weeks notice a few weeks before Christmas existing members have to rejoin and buy the tickets on the same day or risk losing out on their preferred seats in the north stand to a new member who is just signing up to get a play of ticket. it’s not as if I’m going to wait until January or February to rejoin now as their could in theory be rush for new memberships and tickets and I could end up disappointed. Also myself and 3 friends have been going to games for 20 years so had to get them to sign up again on Friday as well which is a pain. Some fans go in groups of say 20 which would be a greater pain. As I said can’t complain about prices amazing and also found the ticket booking process far improved. A better way of doing it would be - - existing members renew by 13/12 - opens to new members 03/01 - Israel tickets go on sale 10/01 This is better as splits membership and ticket costs as well as giving existing members the chance to renew first. Also gives more than a weeks notice to buy the tickets. It also gives fans that go in groups a window to renew so they can still buy tickets and sit together.
  17. £20 for Israel game for travel club members is fantastic value. Bit annoying that existing members didn’t get chance to renew and buy tickets first however.

  19. When we beat Holland 1-0 at hampden in 2003 he played like Franco baresi
  20. Andy Robertson has been excellent for scotland over his 34 caps. The last campaign I agree his form dipped but that was 6 games of the 34 caps -also he was man of the match against cyprus- 2 of the 6 were against San Marino where he done well. Seems like a lot of fans on here quick to base all his performances on 3 games in the last campaign without looking at his performances over 34 caps.
  21. Not really heard many commentators mention it but mctominay would prob have had an england cap this year and in my opinion is better than rice and winks. I wasn’t a mcleish fan but the best thing he done was getting mctominay to pledge his future to Scotland.
  22. Rangers fans will argue that jack is better Celtic fans argue that McGregor is better. Mctominay is miles better than both.
  23. I think I have 10 points so far and going by the website if you add up all supporters on 10 points or more it amounts to 3479 fans. 9 points - 4106 - 8 points -4785 7 points-5961 6 points- 7313 5 points - 8922. You would like to think those on 7 points would get option of tickets if we qualified
  24. Ie if we beat Israel and Norway beat Serbia that is which I think is most likely scenario
