i get what you say but even when we played 4 at the back robertson did not look the same player as i said earlier maybe playing alongside world class players at liverpool helps  but i dont think he shows the same enthusism when he plays for scotland

Wouldn't doubt Robertson's enthusiasm for playing for Scotland. However, the end product that he is used to delivering to, isn't there for him within the Scottish attack. As a result he takes too many touches and is hesitant.

Thoughts with Kyle Lafferty who played for NI tonight after losing his Sister a week ago.  That's tough and takes balls.  All the best, Kyle.     

Ryan Jack was tremendous tonight btw 

I've went from a guy who was quite passionate about the national team in my younger years to a guy who actively now hates them because of the general feeling towards us from their sex offender support

Said it last week, if England pick Sterling And Rashford/Sancho as wide forwards with Foden or Grealish just behind then they’ll give Scotland a doing.

Its a totally different game - sometimes form and reputation goes out of the window. Scotland were on a poor run before the last game at Hampden. In the end they were unlucky not to beat a star packed England side.

Typical Scottish perfomance tonight, promise so much but fail to deliver. Players gave their all but once again management let us down again badly. After Sundays debacle, making 8 changes in a must win game against the supposedly weakest team in our section which a win would have won our league, we throw it away against a team we have struggled to beat in the recent past. This clown Clarke cannot deliver and the sooner we get rid of the better. Forget the europhoria of qualifying Euro 2020 albeit by penalty shoot out, this shower of muppets will take us nowhere with their total mismanagement of our national team. CLARKE OUT.

No doubt will be down to most of them would have been unfit to play after boozing it up after qualifying.

 

There's no other reasonable reason to make so many changes. If you wanted to mix it up you would have done it last night after securing the points neededon Sunday. Still don't understand why McLaughlin didn't play.

They’ll need to go all out defensive to protect Mctominay, Gallagher and Tierney from getting exposed 1v1 versus Sterling or Radhford - The Israel goal last night showed that.

Also not sure lumping balls forward to Dykes will be a good option against Mcguire and co either tbh.

Just read that Scotland lost again. Can't say that I am surprised.

A neanderthal as manager and a collection of players that just ain't up to it. Thing is that Scotland used to produce quality players. Croatia (similar population) still does and almost won a world cup.

It's because in the rest of the world they play the modern game and not the hammer throwing nonsense that is now Scottish football. Whole game in Scotland needs to be changed from top to bottom.

I put on the end of the game on Radio Scotland. Fucking cringeworthy. The players were tired, heavy legs etc etc but apparently nothing can take away from this huge achievement of scraping into the Euros. 
That’ll be a huge number of the Tartan Armies football interest packed away until the tournament starts - then it’s a case of each one trying to be more Scottish than the next. 
I can nearly guarantee that Sturgeon will have some sort of reception for the players to celebrate their achievements just around the time of the elections next year. 
 

That’s the realism of Scotland and international football. Yes there are those that truly enjoy it and follow Scotland passionately- fair play. Fact is though high numbers jump on the band wagon when there’s the odd big game

Going by media reports, Clarke has credit in the bank as I didn’t see any scathing reports that would normally and rightfully be forthcoming given two loses in a row to Slovakia and fucking Israel! 
I wonder how long that credit will last. We scrapped through the back door at the end of the day. Let’s see what the first WC qualifiers brings, but I think he’ll have credit to keep him in the role through the end of the Euros no matter how badly we do come March. 
I think he should be sacked now and give the team a chance of kicking off our WC hopes with some ambition (now the back door is shut) and at least to entertain the support in the summer despite, as expected, not being capable of progressing from the group.

clarke wont be sacked he is the media darling at the moment  scotland will get nowhere till we find a goal scoring  forward  while i dont think shankland is the answer surely he would be better than mcburnie/burke  he has a far better scoring record than any of them   maybe he does not suit clarkes style of high ball up the park
