I,m afraid unless FIFA make the world cup open to 100 teams then we,ll not be going .We,re stuck with the same old rhetoric from the same people. The SFA has to be disbanded and we have to stop the flow of average foreign players coming into our leagues.Our under 21,s are in the semi-finals of a top tournament,how many of them will disappear and never be in their own clubs first team.
Lots to take into account. Population of Mexico 135 million, Scotland 5 million. Mexico preparing to go to World Cup, so their best players playing wanting to impress. Scotland don't have anything to play for and you could maybe even call this a third string side. And playing in Mexico in difficult conditions. Doing Scotland "proud" is a bit much, but they didn't do too badly considering.
I am not sure conceding 30 odd shots to the opposition is "doing Scotland proud"I get a bit fed up when a new manager comes in and says we are starting from scratch , work in progress etc. Its all just to buy themselves time. Lets not forget we weren't that far off qualifying for last 2 major tournaments.We just needed to keep improving not rip it up and start again.
Rather a pointless tour but a nice jolly for the SFA blazers and hangers on.
Well done to Scotland U21 getting to the semi-finals in France.Togo 1 - 1 ScotlandFrance 0 - 1 ScotlandS. Korea 1 - 2 ScotlandGood luck to them in a repeat of last years semi-final against England, hopefully Scotland get to the final.
Good experience for the kids. Not much more to say than that. For a game that we invented we have sunk pretty low but with the likes of Robertson, Tierney, McKenna, McTominay and a few others, I feel reasonably confident about the future.
Pointless friendly with effectively a reserve squad away from home.Not reading into the results and am viewing these games as experience for some young players breaking through.Playing my Irish Card this Summer as Scotland are mince and once againnot going to be there.🍀🇮🇪🍀
It looks like the Scottish fans were 'whelmed' judging by the 25 comments in that amount of time!What did you really reckon if Mcleish is wrong?Only saw highlights, if you can call it that, and not getting hammered is the best that can be said
Hard style what game were you watching? The team were mince. Only Russel deserved a mention.
@11. Brit ScotShould that not be Scot Brit, if you want readers to believe your “pride for their country “ comments?I saw quite a few ‘Brit Scots’ at Hampden in 1999, flying George Crosses - happy to be plastic English supporters.Personally, I don’t like plastic of any sort.
This 'tour' was, I believe, organised before Eck started in the job, so he had to make the best of it. The players that took to the pitch mostly made the best of it - some more than others (Ollie McB over Phillips, Martin etc EVERY time!), and to lose to the 11th and 15th ranked teams, when we are such a lofty 34th place, is neither bad nor unexpected. Change takes time - looking promising so far
Good experience for some of the players, but when the serious stuff begins we will see a different team altogether. So the value the trip is debatable. It would have been good to see one or two stand out players emerging but unfortunately only a small number had decent performances.
The fact that this HYS has so few comments eight + hours after opening says it all ...........
