About Dunty

  1. Does your second sentence not explain a big part of the problem?
  2. The last few years, both home and away, the atmosphere has been really lacking. Of course performances play their part, but even before games it's quiet. Before the Slovakia game I think there was one sporadic chant before the team's came out, then the anthems, then a bit of chanting before it died out all too early. I put it down to an aging support. Not that older fans are not going to sing, I think everyone joins in if the chants get going, but more that they're not going to create new chants or get a real buzz going about the place. There's only so many times you can sing we'll be coming and doh a deer in 90 minutes. Celtic had that same problem. Parkhead was very quiet. Then the Green Brigade came along, and although a lot of what they do re-flags, flares and political messages are not everyone's cup of tea, they have introduced a heap of new songs into games while also revising some old ones. Against Man City the place was deafening, full on noise for 90 minutes and yet I don't think you heard the same chant twice. There's chants there that we should be using - namely their own for Kieran Tierney. Anyway, do we need a similar group with Scotland? Young guys given their own section at Hampden, introducing new chants, maybe singing some old Scottish folk songs, and trying to revise a tired song list?
  3. Eh? They came over to thank the fans for coming. Are we going to criticise them for that now?
  4. They got 6500 in 1999. They got offered about 8,000 (though didn't sell that) for the friendly at Celtic Park.
  5. Berlin to Bratislava on the 10th is £22, if you can work out how to get there for cheap.
  6. The SFA poll is currently underway on their twitter page for what music to play after a goal. 9,166 votes last time I checked. Current results:- Bits and pieces 46% 500 miles 21% No music 18% Chelsea Dagger 15% Genuinely had to go on YouTube to find out what bits and pieces sound like. I get the impression the poll has been hijacked if that is winning. link to it here:
  7. Are there trains from Bratislava to Trnava on match day? They cheap enough and bookable on the day? Staying in Trnava so no return journey needed.
  8. Are you talking about our game or England's? England is in Ljubljana. The FA website confirmed it. Scotland isn't confirmed yet.
  9. Who's running the new poll then? Or is Ruth Davidson blocking it?
  10. If the guys buying tickets could post their order number (or rough number if you like) that gives an idea of how many tickets are sold, that'd be handy for those of us on lower points trying to work out our chances of a ticket.
  11. There's also a video doing the rounds on Twitter of a Scotland fan standing on someone's car to large cheers while s young couple are in it. (To be fair the majority of the crowd look embarrassed by his actions). http://www.twitter.com/ColinPark72
  12. By who? By people who think they get a say in what other people wear? I tend to wear Scotland colours on the day of a game, but in Faro last year I think I had a club strip on the day after the game when I was wondering about in the sunshine. What's the big deal? I also had jeans on instead of a kilt if that upsets anyone.
  13. For Scotland U21 manager, what about Ian Cathro? Young, highly thought of, clearly good with working with young players, and it's something a bit different.
  14. He said on Twitter he didn't have time to make one, but may have one in time for October.
  15. Sbragia should be no-where near that job, but Strachan/McGhee don't give a damn about the U21 side. McGhee said the other day he can't remember the last time he spoke to Sbragia. The u21 team is an after thought. We have a team because UEFA would probably ask questions if we didn't.
