This difference with this Scotland team is that we are lucky. A few soft pens in previous games, playing badly but still getting results. 

Stuff of European Champions

Only goal was to win the tie. We did that by shitfesting it.

Got to be in it to win it. f**k the massive improvement chat let’s play for pens in the final.

We've had plenty of glorious defeats in the past.

I'll take a horrible victory any day of the week!

We had a couple of rank players at a time then. We always had a decent pairing at centre half and we usually had at least one goal scorer.

Now we have two excellent attacking left backs, an adequate keeper, some reasonable midfielders and nothing else.

Hmmm. I'm looking at the number of caps Gary Caldwell has and it isn't zero so you are talking pish.

McTominey's actually not bad in defense - or Israel are just really pish. Not sure.

Tierney in for O'Donnell.
Christie in for Jack.
Griffiths in for McBurnie.

Serbia are favourites but they wouldn't be playing us in the LEAGUE C finals if they weren't average themselves. Ye never know...

 

McTominay should play in midfield against Serbia against Milinkovic-Savic. We will need his physicality otherwisr he will run over the top of Jack, McGregor, etc

I think Marshall said on the radio that it was a shame to lose Tierney, Armstrong and Christie as two of them were starters. He said Gallagher did well filling in too. Tierney and Christie were originally starters I presume.

A midfield of Christie, McGinn and McGregor would be hopeless defensively. I’d be swapping McGregor for Armstrong. McGregor put in another hopeless performance in a Scotland jersey tonight. 
it’s an unpopular opinion but I wouldn’t be against having Scott Brown back in there against Serbia. Brown playing behind McGinn and Armstrong would be decent IMO. 
Fingers crossed Griffiths gets some game time for Celtic and gets fit enough for a call up. I just can’t see where a goal is going to come from from any other striker currently available. 
 

ETA - Brown bossed 2 games against Lazio not so long ago where Malinkovic-Savic was in their midfield.

Aye, it'll be some buzz to finally qualify for a major tournament again, only to be papped put after 3 games and only having 1 shot on target the whole time.

f**k sake, we've been waiting for 20 years to have the pleasure of being papped out after 3 games, now's not the time to worry about that.

I’m happy with that. We were garbage but it does not matter - we’ve made it to our one big shot at glory. We may get pumped but at least we made it there. Had we lost tonight it would have been utterly miserable.

So Clarke expected a shite game?

So he doesnt have confidence of his team to go out and control against the 93rd best team in the world? Losing confidence in him with every moment.

I'm one of those who doesn't understand the excitement of qualifying for something purely because you've qualified.

Its the equivalent of being happy you shitfested your way to 5th so you can play in Europe, despite knowing all it will amount to is a couple of hammerings from teams from Estonia.

That's the spirit!

Horrendous game, but could have been much, much worse.

I take back what I said about McTominay before the match, I thought he played well apart from missing the open third of the goal at the other end of the pitch. As shite as we were, winning changes the feeling after the match massively. One thing against us in the Serbia game will be that they will have their full 30% of capacity in the ground with no Scotland fans.

Don't know how you're still a St Johnstone fan then tbh

No. It isn't.

You get three games, a decent holiday and a share of the atmos.

Better than NOT being there.
