Feck me. The keeper was nearly on the other post when the lassie stroked it.

I know. Dunno why she was a yard behind her line either. 

 

This is truly harrowing viewing. The sheer number of basic mis-controls etc is just ridiculous.

Can't understand why Emslie was dropped..

 

 

Pretty much the only dangerous player we had against England yet dropped to bring in Arnott who seems to be playing at half pace. Ross not up to much either. Should have played the wee lass who at least put tackles in. None of our midfield can tackle.

Need Cuthbert and Little to run at them more, and go down in the box if they touch you.

The lack of tacking or any physical contact is frustrating, at least put a shoulder in ffs, these Japanese are wee midgets.

Scotland need to get a point out of this otherwise it's au revoir I think

 

Even a win against Argentina might not be enough for one of the best 3rd places up for grabs

It reminds of youth football where you see a lot of good youngsters coming through then they get to a certain level and the so called coaches come along and put an end to the enjoyment of the game.These Scottish girls are far better than this.

Scotland playing like Hearts umpteen passes across the backline then eventually a lump up the park to concede possession.

Think Scotland need a new manager, maybe get a bloke in charge if there's no suitable women out there.

 I don't think that would increase the standard tbh.

 

Most of our players just don't look very good and struggle to run with, or control the ball..  They also look scared of the ball.

 

Not good traits for a football player.

Arnot was poor - she lost the ball that ended up with Japan launching it for the penalty

Supposed to be genuinely world class. Most of her passing is backwards.

That Emslie girl has done more in one minute than half the team have done in 63...Did I really just see an headed clearance and the nearest Scottish player looked around to see if anyone else was going to run out to where the ball was going before she started lumbering out there herself?

The way the commentators were talking it sounds like a lot of them play at a high level in the women's game, I was expecting them to be half decent.

 

Having watched a few games the standard across the whole tournament is very poor, I was expecting better tbh.

Why is Little playing so deep and having to play Square or backward passes ?

 

Need goals Shelley !

It's very similar to our men's team and I guess the nature of being a small country with a poor footballing authority.

 

A few good players who look the part at the international stage dragged down by dross in too many key positions.

Hold on there chaps and chapesses we are relatively new to this malarky.  A senior Scottish players says we need more and more players getting into top teams outwith Scotland so they can get better, well I heard somebody say that today, if not a player then one of the management team.

 

Also Ian Maxwell has assured us that 5% of some big figure of income, from somewhere is going straight back into Women's football in Scotland.  He claims that England only put in only 3.5% of the same income figure.  I suspect the income figure he talks about for us will be a lot smaller than England's income figure but hey ho let's not get into the detail, focus only on the percentages say the SFA.

 

So we have a player and/or management person saying get out the country to get better and we have Maxwell saying we spend loads of dough inside the country to make our players better.  Who is right there then?

 

The only reason Andy Murray became great was because he left Scotland.  I know where my money lies in any debate on this, leave.

The way I look at this - Japan are the better team but Scotland have made it too  easy at times for them

 

Back to the drawing board Shelley

All our passing is deep in our own half with Little playing in there. Japan are much higher up the pitch when they are switching it side to side. It did look like damage limitation from the start from Scotland in a game we need to try and get at least a point from.

With Emslie on now it's all the more reason for Little to be further forward, closer to our two main attacking threats. Not much point in damage limitation now. It's goals or bust.

No 13 started from an offside position and still got caught by a covering defender. Towing a bus by the looks of her
