That game saving tackle that Porteous made in the second half was exceptional art.

It should be replayed on a loop by the Ukraine manager, post match to learn his hammer throwers how to tackle


He wanted a pelanty for that one........😂

Absolutely superb performance from Scotland. Brilliant from Clarke and his entire staff and squad. Tremendous achievement and gives us some really significant bonuses moving forward:

1. Nations League A which will bring massive games, and better future play off chances/seedings especially for WC 2026.

2. Pot 2 for Euro 2024 draw a week on Sunday. 2 qualify automatically from all 10 groups.

3. Guaranteed play off spot if we don't qualify automatically.

On tonight given the absentees, quite a few guys who have been brought in from the cold and several guys including the outstanding Hickey (and whisper it Porteous who won't be at Hibs much longer) with little experience and the fact we were playing away from home in our 3rd high tempo match in a week, this is an outstanding result. So many positives; Hickey, Hendry, Porteous, Patterson all young players, the timeless Craig Gordon, consistently excellent McGregor, McGinn and Adams, McTominay magnificent in his correct position etc etc.

Oh and England, Wales and Republic Ireland all in Nations League B.

An absolutely brilliant night for Scottish football.

Aye this is my take too. I love Patterson, but it's Hickey's jersey to lose. 


2 great young right backs is a great problem to have. We can rotate and still have that quality and intensity.

At this moment yeah I'd also be sticking with hickey as first choice

About a year to 18 month ago, the RB spot was fucking chronic with O'Donnell the clear choice.

Hickey and Patterson's time is now. Cracking time for both to break through.
