Do you think we can all enter into a pact not to mention the Scotland international team unless it's the women's game?

I'm not trying to upset you, Kingmills, but I will mention that the Guardian's report said that Graeme Shinnie was at fault for the first two goals.  I didn't read the rest of it...

Massive game now against San Marino :rotflmao:

Yup, confident that, if we keep it tight, we can get a point from that one.

Some of the comments on the highlights were priceless.

"San Marino manager considering who to rest against Scotland"

"McLeish tries to disprove the adage there are no easy matches at international level"

"Unacceptable, disgraceful Kazakh manager fired after lacklustre performance against Scotland"

We really have become a laughing stock a downward spiral over the last 30 years, it's a good job we don't have to play the Africans or South Americans regularly our FIFA ranking glosses over our true level. Peter Grant actually thought we started the game well?????? 2 down after 12 minutes, didn't know Peter did irony.

Embarrassing result and performance, I'm sure like most I was glad I was working.

Caleyjag tried to subject me to the highlights last night but I fell asleep before it came on, bit like the actual Scotland team just before it kicked off.

Well that was a hard watch. The Czech Republic were by far the better team tonight, and all bar two were debutants and they were only called up yesterday.

With two class left backs, why are we playing a back three that includes a midfielder out of position? With the same starting line up, a 4 5 1 or 4 4 2 would have been more sensible with Palmer and Robertson playing full back and McTominay in midfield. 

We got a very lucky penalty (scored by Christie) or this would have been another night of great embarrassment. David Marshall has several good saves and the woodwork saved us at least once. The Czechs has 19 attempts compared to our 6.

Only bright spot was Dykes instinctive run for his goal.

We need to revert to a back 4 when we play Israel in the play off.

I’m big enough to say when I am wrong.

After three wins in 7 days with no goals conceded, Clarke is doing a great job and the formation is working.

OK, we needed penalties against Israel and we were under pressure a lot tonight but results count.

Undefeated in over a year, on our best run for 32 years, can we break with our “glorious failure” habit and get a win in Serbia and qualify for the Euros? I really hope so.

I know. I was still at school in 78 when we were meant to win the World Cup!

However, this time may be different? Time will tell!

I do like the Nations League concept, so much better than meaningless friendlies. And it’s nice to see the league tables currently being topped by footballing nations that people used to laugh at like the Faroes, Luxembourg, North Macedonia and, erm, Scotland.

It makes a refreshing change that is for sure. Long may it continue.

I'm still fully expecting a 95th minute winner from a Serbian breakaway after we've dominated possession and had some glorious missed chances - it's in our psyche, we canna help it...

Those of us of a certain age have been there far too often before to expect anything else 😁

First experienced during the 1974 World Cup. Repeated frequently since.
