Scotland v Israel


Recommended Posts

Like everyone else, I wasn’t remotely confident with Dykes’ penalty. Based on our shoot outs, and yesterday’s starting side my first choice would be McGregor and second McTominay. McGinn would be before Dykes too.

Man Utd took Mctominay off in the dying seconds of the Europa League final to bring on a penalty taker. Maybe its just the small sample size but the two he took in the shoot outs for Scotland were almost perfect.

His penalty was utter garbage last night, but Dykes seems to be the only guy we have taking them regularly for his club, so fair enough sticking him on them.

McGinn’s penalty against Israel in the shootout was also shite.

Edit: for what it’s worth, the penalty I remember being the best in either shootout was McBurnies, but probably not worth calling him up just for that.

Yeah, despite our recent penalty shoot-out successes, I don’t really fancy any of our players taking them. Christie if he is playing, otherwise probably McGregor or McTominay. McGinn seems to be as rubbish at pens as Dykes is.

McGregor or McLean imo. We haven't really seen if Adams or Gilmour could step up though.

Anne Widdecombe would have taken a better penalty than Dykes.

Not sure if she'd qualify to play for us though.

Most wcq assists for Scotland

Robertson - 3

Tierney - 3

Seems like a long time ago we were cursing our luck at both of our top class players being left backs - they are thriving in this setup

Agreed on Crocker's commentary. Awful, clearly rehearsed and phoney. A voice that does my nut in.

McCoist is the opposite in every way, legend.

I had two pals video call me from high up in the stand just as the third went in. At this point I was sitting tuned into a stream and considering swapping the wine for Domestos. Consequently got to celebrate on video with the rest of the ground, topless.

More than a few folk I know took their kids to their first game last night. Incredible. My first game was watching us getting beat off Costa Rica at Italia 90 and being set for a life of misery.

Mentioned this very subject to Mrs. B earlier tonight.  Poor wee fuckers don’t realise yet it’s all downhill from here 😂

Were they sitting in top tear at corner side that we got winning corner from. Think I was behind them as seem them video calling someone for maybe last 10 mins of game.  Great night and think its what we all needed to truely draw a line on the covid era and hangover of what if's from the euros. Realistically going to be a challenge to get past 2 rounds to get to world cup but this team has a bit of nerve if things get tight. Next euros not that far away either so hopefully get in decent seeing either. 

Great to have a Saturday miss the days when we had more of them then I could make more games,  think that has been the biggest factor in crowds over last 5 years or so though performance also has influence.

As for the suggestion we need a Dalgliesh, no we need a Joe Jordan for this team! Older guys know what I mean emoji6.png

Nah sorry, mate.  I'm an 'older guy' and much as I like  your non-Aberdeen posts you've dropped a bollock here.

Dalglish was Scotland's last truly world class  player and the thought of him and Billy Gilmour working in combination makes me tumescent.

The 5pm start confused me.  I was in the house myself + alcohol. As the game neared the end I had it in my mind that it was midweek as it was an evening kick off, then I realised it was Saturday but an hour of post match chat then I would be thinking of heading to bed, then I realised it was about 7:30 and the wife had time to watch Strictly Come Dancing when she got in while I read these pages.

Suspect Souness might object to this opinion seeing as they packed it in at about the same time I think.

Maybe - but i'd rate Dalglish ahead of Souness.  Who wouldn't?

I’m too young to really have seen much of either as we didn’t have wall to wall TV coverage in those days.  I remember watching the Dalglish goal against Spain in the 3-1 which sticks out.

I can only judge Dalglish on his goal scoring record and tbh it wasn’t that great for either Liverpool or Scotland if you’re looking at goals to games.  I have no idea if he set up zillions of goals for Rush which is what makes Liverpool fans rave about him. 
 

Souness ran the midfield in arguably the best club side of that era.  Gives him the nod for me.
