In Topic: Is Scotland's Main Problem Pyschological?

My tuppence worth:


Draws are not good results and will result in failure to qualify. I tried to point this out in the pub after our draw in Poland and got shot down.


Germany/Spain/Italy, etc. are not 11 superhero Gods. We can beat them and we can certainly take points from them. We currently take zero points from 6 as "Well we didn't expect anything so no harm done"


We focused on 4 games against out expected rivals when the group consisted 10 games.


We must learn to take points even when outplayed...........apparently Germany were all over Ireland but lost.


Yes it is psychological. A golfer standing over a 4 foot putt thinking "I think I'll miss" will miss. We need to start believing we can win. Currently everyone says the right things on TV but do they really, honestly believe?

Sometimes its difficult to put your finger on and sometimes intangible but basically I found all the Poles I encountered and witnessed from relatively close in the West Stand to be less than friendly especially relative to the atmosphere with other away fans...............sorry but that's how it felt.

I know little about Rugby but the vibes appear to be we have a better than decent chance of doing the business and with 7 days rest and a fully fit squad you don't need to have been brought up in The Borders to know that's good :-)
