For the 501st time, no i dont. I think theirs is better as they do better at major tournaments. Is it ok that I disagree with you?

You don't what? You said you thought it was better earlier! But yeah fine, some Scotland fans hate the national team so far they legitimately think we are worse than Northern Ireland or Iceland. It's bizarre yeah, but if you think then there's no convincing you otherwise.

I will drink to that, mon frere. It would be nice to say to my bairns and grandbairns how shite we were "in my day" when they're gutted that we've only gotten to the quarter finals again.

To the second bold part, I don't know where you get that from as Celtic just won their 10th title in 11 years and have a European Cup 😉.

The domestic leagues of Wales and Ireland are pretty poor though, and even without the old firm Scotland has historically good record in Europe and some of the highest proportional attendances in Europe (that's even when excluding the old firm, and not doing the same to other nations). Our domestic game is best in class, something to be very proud of but plenty of evidence it hurts the national team (as it does for turkey and Russia).

making the last 16 out of 24 is making it to the knockout stages. Scotland have never done that before.

Scotland did really well to get to grind it out to get to Euro 92 (almost had to apply an algorithm at one stage to work out what we needed to see happens re points with Bulgaria/Romania/Greece or whoever it was in the group) and played really well in all 3 games when there. However ultimately we failed to progress to the knockout stages and that dismal record continues.

Therefore you may not personally agree but it is perfectly reasonable for others to say their assessment of the greater achievement would be seeing Scotland finally break the group stage hoodoo at an expanded tournament. 

It's just purely a formatting complaint then. The world won't turn if we reach the knockout rounds, and if we reach the last 16 of the euros it still won't be our best performance in the competition, and reaching the last 32 of a 48 team world cup won't be even close to our best record in that competition. It's a stick used to beat the national team but it's pretty unimportant and will disappear soon. Won't think beating northern Ireland in a second round will beat 9 world cup qualifications in 48 years, thats a magnificent record we will never replicate again.

Everythings relative, compared to you lot were the galacticos

Must admit, I never thought you'd be so keen to prove my point when I mentioned that some Morton fans have a chip on the shoulder about other diddy clubs, but you should absolutely do this with everyone now.

Aye, I did rather get the impression you'd been skimming posts for a while.

Nice that Steve Clarke will reach this milestone tonight equaling Chesney so well done to him. Credit where it's due.

I was very surprised it was 40. It doesn’t feel like 40, I’ve got to be honest. That must mean that somewhere in there, although you don’t see it very often, I’m actually quite enjoying the job. I didn’t notice that statistic but I always say the same thing to people about achievements and categorising things. I will only do that when I am finished and sitting lying on a beach somewhere counting back. Only then will I try to categorise how I felt about that job and this job and what my best moment was or my win ratio. All that is for later. For now? I’ll just carry on being miserable and get on with my job.

Sacked in the morning IMO.

I would be very much against that 🤣

I think whats Clarke done in the last 3 games has been remarkable.

The criticisms against him were his teams were negative and the formation and tactics were not correct for every game. Especially games like the last 3, winnable.

Hes changed formation and tactics and shown he can get his teams playing on the front foot and controlling games.

Plenty were demanding we stick with the back 5, which would have brought the end of Steve clarkes reign.

Would we have beaten Ukraine in the world cup eliminator playing like that, probably.

Would we have picked up enough points to qualify for our euro group? Probably

But personally I'm interested in looking forward now not back. Were playing great.

I love you big stevey baby 😍
