I believe he's suspended for the Moldova game. Canny believe there's still folk out there that don't want him in the team. He's not the best player in the world but he's EXACTLY the type of player this Scotland team needs.

You’ll still get c***s arguing Leigh Griffiths should be in the team cause “He’s a natural goal scorer” despite being pretty pish for Scotland

a win is a win but christ that was a hard watch far too slow doing anything,lucky not to be behind at the break...70 mins gone needing a goal and he brings on macgregor....terrible.

At the time I thought it was a good substitution. Take off Hendry, move McTominay back and replace with McGregor. It worked as well.

McTominay was much better in the back 3, which has been the case for the last year or so.

 

The thing is our 3-5-2 formation replies on the central midfielders to push forward and not really play as holding midfielders. If we were playing some variant of 4-5-1/4-3-3 then McTominay would be perfect for the holding midfield role (As he does for Man Utd) but he doesn't belong in the midfield of a 3-5-2 formation.

 

The RCB position should be his own until the time comes when we decide to move to a back 4.

We're a win against the bottom seed away from finishing 2nd and qualifying for a playoff with a game to spare. It's going to be our best qualification campaign for 2 decades.

Why are some people on the verge of tears ?

Natural reaction to the " stress   " of watching the game

against the Faroes !

How was Ryan Jack so good for the team when he was playing ( as a holding midfielder ) ?

It is crazy but is partly due to having to play Robertson and Tierney together

How decent were the Faroes in spells last night? Fair fucks to them, they had a plan and looked great going forward a number of times, as well as being solid without the ball. 100% fair fucks to them for that.

Exactly this. Last night was like away to Israel in 1981, Iceland in 85, Cyprus in 89, Belarus in 97. Dreadful performances but vital wins that took us to World Cups.

Not after we won though. 😄

I was grinning ear to ear for about a month starting from the morning after. 

It's the morning after again, I'm hungover after a 5am start and I couldn't be happier. I'm not one of these miserable c***s who likes to bring Scotland down, but their antics over the last 20 years mean that they give me the fear like nothing else in football. 

Might as well enjoy the next month or so now though. It feels great to be in contention again.

How many times have Scotland turned a great home victory into a meaningless memory by failing to beat the shite side in qualifying away in the same campaign?

I know it's rhetorical, but twice that I can think of - both times involving Georgia.

It happened in Monaco against Estonia too, but we got away with that one.

So if we beat Moldova we will finish runner up in the group.

The 10 runners up from the leagues get joined by the 2 highest Nations League teams that haven't qualified automatically and are not runner ups......it will be Austria and either Wales or the Czech Republic. The Welsh and Czechs will both be involved in some capacity.

The Twelve teams are then drawn into 3 groups of 4 teams. It's a one leg semi then a one leg final. That gets the 12 teams down to three "Winners" who all qualify for the World Cup.

So Scotland 3 wins from Qatar .

I know the seeded sides get to be at home in the play-off semis.  What determines the venue of the play-off finals?

The winner of the first of the two semi finals to be pulled out of the hat is at home in the final, so you want to be drawn in that one.

The dream scenario for us is obviously to be seeded and in one of those semis, therefore knowing that we are two home wins from qualifying.
