R U sure about Hickey , and McMuffin in midfield ?

I thought Hickey was one the least of our worries tbh, Patterson would be my first choice for that side but i don't think he was atrocious. 

McMuffin in midfield looked better but the change of shape and Ukraine sitting back a bit gave us a bit of momentum but it was too little too late. I don't know who he starts ahead of in the long term. Clarke likes him though, so he'll squeeze him in somewhere.

Clarke got it wrong from the off, again. Ukraine were the far better team, it could and should have been about 5. 

Need to dust ourselves off and get on with the Nations League now. Could do with a back door route into the next Euros again, just in case.

They were very good defensively but doesn't make up for how fucking shite we were, Hanley, Cooper & McTominay should be banned from the country

Ukraine were not good defensively, which is why Scotland got a comedy goal to keep them in a match they should have been sworded in.

Nonsense. He’s an absolute roaster of a person.

Ah mate, did he shag your missus as well?

I moved on.

Looked like they had an extra man all night. Fucking shite. Robertson, and everyone else for that matter, absolutely hopeless. Armenia and Ireland... Can see those games far enough.

FTFY

We have a decent squad on paper. They are good enough for their clubs. Yet again at home to a nation around our level we don’t show up. The players simply aren’t interested and the so-called Scottish media couldn’t be more delighted that Ukraine won.

Watched McGinn's chance again. Absolutely terrible. Much like the Euros, you quite simply won't get anywhere against half decent sides when you miss fucking stupid sitters like that.

I say this just about every Scotland match but David Turnbull has fantastic delivery from wide areas, corners, set pieces. He's the best we have at putting a ball into the box.

Never plays.

Because that is literally all he has. 

He's behind 4 or 5 other players in our midfield despite the shite performance tonight.

McGinn has been pretty poor for a long time now.

The goalkeeper was comically poor.

Of course we troubled him not at all bar the goal and McGrim's comedy miss.

We’ve scored a few good goals from inswinging corners recently.

Does anyone know why for every corner we decided to float in outswingers that were nowhere near that complete haddy of a keeper?

Very disappointing performances all round, regularly making the wrong decisions at key moments. Never managed to get the tactics right, and Steve Clarke's warlock powers weren't enough to do more than stop Ukraine scoring more of their chances when we were sluggish at the back. But, it was still a better performance than some of the poorer ones from the start of Clarke's reign, and I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that the extraordinary occasion might have caused the team to regress. I guess we'll see if the hangover bleeds into the Nations League games.

Despite how we made them look tonight, I still maintain Ukraine are a pretty mediocre side, and Wales ought to beat them.
