  1. Zero points

    They've sold out for the friendly with Holland on Tuesday, and there's big excitement over the England team now that has risen after beating Germany and a good Euros will raise it even further. They believe Russia 2018 will be their time. I reckon they'll sell out.
  2. Mark McGhee Explains Shinnie's Omission

    "Robertson and Mulgrew have the position sewn up." Yet Robertson tends to be dropped for many of the big games (Ireland away for example) because Strachan clearly doesn't trust him, and has he ever started Mulgrew at left back?
  3. Did I hear a new song ?

    They've been switching between that and "cheer up Gordon Strachan" all night. Typical English, obsessed with Scotland. Kinda glad they won tonight though, I like it when they whip themselves into a frenzy before a tournament. (now totally going off topic from new songs) England aren't scared to try loads of new caps and it pays off for them. Let's be honest we're playing for second place in this group.
  4. Team v Czech Republic

    Wasn't impressed with Andrew Robertson in Prague and in fact he hasn't had a really good Scotland performance for a while. Think Georgia at Ibrox was the last time he really shone. It seems to be accepted that he's our first choice left back but I would like to see a few others tried out, namely Shinnie and Wallace, as Whittaker and Forsyth were both poor replacements in the last campaign.
  5. Did I hear a new song ?

    For the uninitiated, it went... everywhere we go, everywhere we go, it's the Scotland boys making all the noise, everywhere we go. Aberdeen fans been singing similarfor mostof the season so presume it came from that. Also "No Scotland, no party" but that started in Faro so newish rather than new. Any new chantsare welcome and made for a good atmosphere.
  6. Anybody there yet ?

    Security really tight in Paris. Had my boarding pass scanned SIX times by six different people.
  7. who will you be supporting at the euros?

    Whoever I get in the work's sweeper.
  8. The Two Squads

    Shinnie is a genuine contender for player of the year. Can't fathom any possible reason why he shouidnthave made at least one of the squads. Ross McCormack has 20 goals this season for Fulham. Tony Watt has 7 for Blackburn. Watt gets called up, McCormack doesn't.
  9. Rangers players in squad by qualifiers.

    Have no problem with Wallace being in the squad. Likewise Tierney and McGinn. However none of them should be starting at the moment, even for these friendlies. They're squad players, take alook at them, get themtraining and familiar with the other players, maybe a token 20 mins in one of the games. The two first choice left backs for both squads should be Andy Robertson and Graeme Shinnie. Please not Steven Whittaker.
  10. Sick of bullshit

    So you didn't lose out on tickets to new members - the people you'rehaving a go at? You lost out on tickets to people who had points, and therefore were existing members? Good night though was it?
  11. The Scotland game you wish you had been at

    Did that game not kick-off onthe exact same day and even the same kick-offtime as England v Netherlands (which was a boring 0-0 draw)? Two World Cup games would never kick-off at the same time now (save for the final group game), but I'm sure both England and Scotland were on at 9pm that night.
  12. Just wondered if there was a Scotland game that stands out that you wish you had been at. For me, so many to pick from, but at the risk of simply listing them all, I'd say Scotland/Wales at Anfield. Can only imagine the atmosphere that night was incredible.
  13. All three highly debatable, and all three highly dependent on how well they're doing on the pitch. If Aberdeen ever build their new stadium you would have to concede they would have a lot more potential for all of the above than in their current home. Even then, if stadium is the criteria, then you could argue Hibs currently have more potential than both Hearts and Aberdeen as they don't need to spend anything on theirs, and if they win either cup and get promoted they'll be coming up on a crest of a wave. Not necessarily. Celtic are currently outspending everyone and Aberdeen are level with them at the top, so there's nothing to say even both the old firm trying to outspend each other will result in them leaving everyone else behind. People keep saying Celtic (and Rangers) will start spending huge sums when they're in the same division as each other, as if we're back at the beginning of the SPL when they signed all these big names from Europe. Celtic ARE spending serious money - is it not something like 22 players and nearly £15 million Ronny Deila has spent? However, the top players aren't interested unless they make the champs league, so it's Ciftci, Kazim Richards, Mackay-Steven and Boyata rather than Hartson, Sutton and Bellamy. They should still be up at the top, as should Rangers, but Aberdeen are showing - and soon Hearts and maybe Hibs will too - it's not the impossible task getting in about them as it once was. I fully expect the old firm to be split next season if Rangers come up.
  14. Sorry to bump the thread but was just reading through this. Be interested to know why you think Hearts have more potential than Aberdeen?
  15. Wembeleeyy

    The play-offs they got 6,500 up here and we got 7,500 at Wembley. Of course, we had a much smaller SSC membership then. I may be wrong but I think everyone who applied for a ticket got one. It was also a different stadium of course.
