While the conduct of FIFA leaves a lot to be desired, I'm still irritated by the moral high-ground chasing arrogance and sheer glee/bitterness (not even sure how they manage to combine those two) of the English FA and media. They invented association football don't you know.

Was trying to listen to talksport this morning through a shect medium radio, and you could hear colin murray practically whanking himself stupid over this. As you say fifa are a corrupt bunch, something we have known for years, it's doubtful whether this'll make a difference to fifa long term, especially wi blatter still going to be in charge. The english media in that press conference were insistent that they should vote again for the world cups, but there is no way that is going to happen.

If we can't beat Georgia then we don't deserve to be going to the finals. They are ranked 139 in the world and miles behind the likes of Faroes and Cyprus. Poland destroyed them and they were all over the place.

True, but what worries me is 2 things. 1 they have had a new manager & 2 we are scotland

with their next game being against gibralter and ours against georgia, i would be less nervous going into it 5 points clear of them rather than 2. And our two games after that are no easy ride either. Hopefully they will be deed on their feet afte england game. Think as well, because both sides are as good as each other, it makes it harder to call on the night and what happens in the following games as well and if we have that extra 3 point advantage we can go into the next games with confidence and hopefully wrap up 3rd, then you never know with the right result against poland, stranger things have happened.

I don't think we can afford a draw. A win gives us scope for things going wrong in georgia, a draw doesn't. I'm nervous because i think this game will be the defining one in the campaign, there's a lot resting on it and ireland aren't a bad side. But we have shown before that we can do well against good sides, so hopefully can do so again.
