Could be worse it could've been us getting pumped in Cardiff tonight. 

 

Aye, Steve Clarke's played a blinder here...

There is apparently nothing more self-loathing than a Scottish football fan. Ffs we lost ONE game.

1 major tournament in the last 2 decades.

Well at least it was the last possible major tournament and not one 10 years ago.

Wales boss Page showing Clarke how to play Ukraine. What a fucking embarrassment we are. An irrelevance in world football.  And Ukraine will probably pump us again in Nations League.

You really, really hate Scotland don’t you.
(Statement not question)

Is it because thistle are shite and you also are an inadequate human being, or just bitter at your well deserved Covid relegation?

Imagine if in the summer of 1998 you’d have said:
‘In the next 25 years Wales will qualify for three times as many major tournaments as Scotland’
You’d have been wheeled off in a straitjacket.

I stand corrected. But a country with only 4 actual top class league clubs they still put us to utter shame.

Maybe, but they don’t have two monsters founded on and continuing to live off of sectarian hatred, to the detriment of the rest of the teams, the national side and the country as a whole

To me, in that game there, vs our game during the week the thing that bothered me the most was the passion and commitment shown by the Welsh vs the complete lack of it by us. It’s so, so disappointing.

I’ve been thinking this for a while. Even when you take Bale and Ramsey out, if you look at the rest of their players, they just seem to have a bit more oomph about them. I’d say the same for likes of Iceland and Ireland previously as well (and maybe even Northern Ireland to some degree) - there’s not much overall between their squads and ours but they just seem to have that little bit extra.

Very Wales. Getting through in the spawniest way possible. Deflected goal and stonewall penalty that even with VAR the officials couldn't get right.

Hope they get humped.

You're not getting the Scotland job, Yogi.

Scotland had 14 shots to Ukraine's 15, Ukraine outshot Wales 24-9 tonight (9-2 shots on target). We were beaten by the better team on Wednesday, Wales fluked a win against the better team tonight. Football is a pretty simple game of slim margins sometimes.

I follow a fair amount of Welsh football folk online, and they seem to have an overall togetherness as well as a culture/spirit around the national side (that has been building for the best part of a decade) that for various reasons, we just don't seem to have. This bleeds through to the players to the point where they all are all absolutely daft about playing for Wales and some of them openly use club football as a means to keep fit for internationals.

I don't put too much emphasis on the cliched intangibles like desire, passion and so on - and do believe we're going in the right direction - but aye there was a noticeable difference in overall attitude from Wales compared to ourselves. The atmosphere dropped pretty quickly on Wednesday and turned to frustration at times even before the goal, which didn't really happen tonight.

Wales play like that every game. Looking like they could run all day and never stop running. Compare that with the game on Wednesday night and you can see why Wales have been better than us for a decade. 
 

It sounds very ‘yer da’ but the Wales players look like they’re possessed whenever when they pull on that red shirt.

We never actually do anything when we get to a World Cup. At least Wales might have ambitions to get out the group stages. Good luck to them.
