Tbh, arrogant or not, the Faroes with a population of 50K that’s like suggesting a full strength Scotland team shouldn’t expect to win a game against players selected only from Perth or Kirkcaldy etc.

It’s never a given to win any game, but it would be a disappointment, merging on embarrassment to lose this one.

Remember ..... not so long ago it took us until the 97th minute to beat Leichtenstein in a qualifier and its got a population less than Dumfries ......

Like a Perth team in a city of 50,000 getting an away draw against a side from Istanbul, a city of 15 million?

Have the whale botherers got any players that would make our squad?

No, they don't.

The players they have are mostly based in the Faroes, but outside that they have guys in the Irish, Danish, Icelandic and Norwegian top flights, and the Austrian and Belgian second tiers. I don't think any of them would be troubling our squad.

England.
That's the association going on here.  Don't pretend it escapes you.

I took it as an attack on, well, Prince Andrew and the Royal Family in general. He's as much our Prince as he is England's and Wales' and a dozen other places.

Yes, Royalty as an assertion of English dominance.

The point is that the banner exists as an attempt at humour.  It's reminiscent of the 'Paedo Free in Division 3' banner displayed by a Rangers fan to widespread and appropriate condemnation on here.

Faroes ranked only about 30 places behind Israel. Going by previous posts, there is no way we should be thinking we will win this. That would be sheer arrogance.

If we win that would be expected - but if we draw or lose, then that would also be expected. 

The rankings are of course a fine barometer of how good a team actually is.  No team has ever had a ridiculous ranking.

You could fit the Faroes population inside Hampden. Of course we should think we should win this.

Half their team play in the amateur Faroes league and their best two very players that I can see just got relegated from the Danish and Swedish league.

Ex-Motherwell keeper Gunnar Nielsen on the bench for the Faroes.

Little known fact is that it was his name that led to the Terrible Journalism thread starting.

monkey tennis with his pro paedo stance has certainly livened up the pre match chatter

Obviously, you can piss off with that.

Does the logic here really escape you though? I was at the Hampden game with England four years ago and thought the 'Jimmy Savile - he's one of your own' song was in poor taste.  Thinking that is actually the opposite of having any regard for Jimmy Savile.
