  1. I'd give him the start of the campaign. Re-assess after the England game, when we'll have some time to make an appointment and the next game would be Malta at home. We must have a minimum of 6 points by then. Imo anything more is a bonus for 2nd place.
  2. First time in 16 years there's been a total wash out. Would be the day I had tickets for. Here again today and not looking good. Managed to get tickets for tomorrow so fingers crossed get to see the Gasguet match
  3. I got the season ticket, for 2014/15. £130 for 5 games. Other than the fact rugby is pish compared to football, much better value.
  4. Frustrating that it takes till October to give the results of the ballot.
  5. Yes. With the German efficiency there were certainly no issues getting our bags back at the end. For a spring marathon I loved Rome and Barcelona and preferred them. The locals don't get behind it as much as the Germans did though. Hamburg definitely a good option for when the Nae luck magazine drops through the door from London, which is when we booked.
  6. Hamburg marathon yesterday. Well organised, good crowds out to support and decent weather. No a bad medal as well. And a PB for the wife :-)
  7. Entries for Next years Paris marathon opened yesterday for anyone interested.
  8. Love this video and how it just builds and builds. If only we could get it going. If he gets more game time the Super John McGinn song is decent for something different.
  9. My starting line up depending on club form. I expect it to be totally different from Strachan and not much different from most of last campaign. Gordon Hutton Martin Hanley Robertson Fletcher Bannan Snodgrass Fletcher Ritchie McCormack Robertson in for his pace and attacking outlet. I don't feel we need both Brown and Fletcher against Malta. Fletcher gets the nod on recent form for me. Bannan in for directness and ability to find a penetrating pass. I'd have him in both Malta and Lithuania games. Anya has previously struggled against poor teams who sit deep, which I expect Malta to do. His main asset is his pace where he causes problems against a higher line (goals against Germany, Poland and Czech Rep prime example). He's out for this one, with Ritchie for his goal threat and crossing. If Snodgrass can get back to his 2013 form, he's one of the first names on the team sheet. Hopefully after a full pre season he'll be back to his best. I was impressed in the first 25 mins v Denmark how Fletcher helped join up the midfield and striker. For years our lone striker seems to get totally isolated.
  10. Agree Fletcher is our best midfielder. Brown was disappointing last night and looked slow towards the end. McGinn had a great first half I thought. When it comes to the qualifiers though, there are games certain personnel are more suited to. For example id play mcarthur if fit v England, but swap him for Bannan v Malta/Lithuania where we'll need someone more creative to break them down.
  11. Agree. Ritchie seems a breath of fresh air in that regard.
  12. I've given since Georgia. They didnt seem concerned regarding trip there. I donate in Edinburgh. I tried to give on Xmas eve after hearing their advert constantly. Got there at just after 1 to find they'd shut at 1 and weren't open for the next 4 days.
  13. I wouldn't say it's as simple as that. My membership means I can get a season ticket, saving me £30 on public prices for games I'd go to anyway. Also only one lot of postage. Add in the money I've saved with the discount on the strips and I've already got more than my monies worth. Then there's free tickets to u21 games and all manner of other stuff.
  14. So how would that work. 5000 people pick up at hampden prior to kick off. Not sure about unreasonable but certainly ridiculous.
  15. I'm not convinced points for home games would make much difference to who actually gets the tickets. It'd also be impossible to monitor misuse of it. That being said. I'm surprised as a way to increase crowds and bring in revenue the SFA haven't done it before now.
