Just the two assists in that game.

Liverpool shipped him out to the Stanley Park McDonalds yet?

Putting extra trains on to Edinburgh and to nowhere else is pish. There are buses running there all night. The services are required to take people further out. It's a wider point but I think with fully nationalised transport this doesn't happen.

I've decided that this game is an impending disaster. Tierney and Patterson missing out, the Ukraine narrative, Scotrail, the fact that the delay has put us in a worse place than March.

I need someone to snap me out of this.

According to the Ukraine narrative…….we are fucked!

Reality though means we are winning 3 - 0  

You’ve made me feel better about this game

I’m pretty sure you couldn’t get a train north of Perth after a game in “normal” times. Certainly not past Dundee. The trains they’ve now put in are pretty much what they usually would have as far as I can see.

Trains to Paisley, Gourock, Neilston, Stirling and East Kilbride is not "to Edinburgh and to nowhere else".

Tbh the announcement said extra trains to Embra. I don't really care that much about central belt as they're served very well by buses. The train to EK is shite anyway, and far too expensive.

Christian Dailly and Stephen Pearson

Great game that. We played brilliantly. McCulloch scored a tremendous goal and McFadden's wasn't bad

 

I missed 1, the first guy that you’ve listed in your spoiler.

Never seen us start a game as well as that day.

Hopefully we'll get the same on Wednesday.

We just absolutely blew them away in the first 10 minutes. Stadium was absolutely buzzing that afternoon, just as it will be on Wednesday.

My son was born a few days before this and Mrs B and him ended up having an extended stay in hospital. I had just went in for visiting when my phone started buzzing. I was trying not to celebrate when the first goal went in and then when my dad texted the second time, I thought it was going to be to say that Ukraine had equalised, so was delighted to see it was 2-0. Watched the game on Sportscene that night when i got home and they showed the atmosphere beforehand and it just looked fantastic. I was at the Lithuania game we won 3-1 and the atmosphere was brilliant that day, but that looked like it trumped it.

It was a very strong Ukraine team too and we smashed them, although I do recall a bit of trepidation when Schevchenko scored and pretty sure they had a great chance to equalise not long after, but second half we were in control and McFadden sealed it.

Full game is here:

Man. That was our last semi-decent team before the current bunch, and the current team are so, so much better than this bunch. That team had unbelievable levels of heart though.

Outrageous bit of play from Brown in the third minute to win the free kick we scored from - smashing into the boy, keeping it in play with a back heel and then nicking it away. I often forget what 2004-9ish Scott Brown was like - charging about at full pelt for 90 minutes. One of the most complete Scotland performances that day, the whole momentum from the campaign built up to it and absolutely everything just clicked - you can feel it in the crowd even looking back 15 years later. 

Also - did they normally play what sounds like the first couple of seconds of Fools Gold before 500 miles or did the DJ press the wrong button after our first goal? 😂
