Can’t see us getting anything but with Scotland they are more likely to get something from a game like this and toil against teams like....Cyprus

 

Yeah that's the Scotland way.

Robertson has hamstring injury.

 

Other changes are tactical.

Don’t expect us to get anything but at least make a game of it. Will be disappointed if we get absolutely humped as will kill any momentum/feel good factor the Clarke appointment had.

Armstrong and Fraser play in the same league as half the Belgian team not sure why you wouldn’t play them both. Both direct can run with the ball and have pace surely everything you need in a game like this.

Hopefully the mindset is 'we can nick this one' as opposed to 'we got the must have 3pts against Cyprus so....'

I'd have shifted Mulgrew to left back and brought Souttar in.

 

Why has Fraser dropped out?

Drops Fraser? The only player apart from Robertson who's been playing half the Belgium team every week, and our main potential threat. Dearie me.

Aye the keeper + back 3 and front 3 have been together for years now. Plenty years left in them too.

This looks like a terrible mismatch.  Scotland are paying 26/1which are the longest odds I've ever noticed.

 

Just shows what a smallish nation can do in football.  They appear light years ahead of us.

 

It's on t v here but thankfully I'll be working.

Wonder if he'll ever get over it.

 

Only 16 you know.

Good luck to Greg Taylor .3rd in line behind Scotland's two best players.

He must have thought  he will never get a game.

Hope he does well.

Hopefully he does, and Tierney's shite-baggery under the guise of being injured, when in reality it was more to do with not wanting to play under McLeish...comes back to bite him on the arse.

 

He's not the best LB. He doesn't play. No more shoe-horning the wee rat in.

Truly honking. McLeish-esque. (We'll probably win).

 

Hope Tierney enjoys watching. Missing his big chance here.

Clarke has shown he can get the best out of players. 

 

It is a tough one tonight. But they've earned the right to be there.

Well I like a wee bet on the game for an interest, so after seeing the team selections, I have kept my bets to a minimum.

 

Red Card

 

S McKenna 33/1 - Slower than a week in Saughton, against Belgium, fcuk.

g

C Mulgrew 33/1 - Souttar must be saying to himself WTF.

 

S O'Donnell 33/1 - Up against Hazard, frightening.

 

G Taylor 33/1 - Hopefully the young lad will not get destroyed.

 

J Russell 50/1 - Great price.

I'll willingly eat my words if Scotland even play well, never mind win and I do want them to succeed.  

 

If we are thrashed, the SFA should be cringing with embarassment but they won't be.  The big 2 are back at the top so all is well.

Bet Hazard and Lukaku haven't gone up against a defence this slow, since they were playing at under 11's.

We're playing the team ranked number 1 in the world who haven't lost in 8 years at home (I think), getting thrashed won't be embarrassing.

Not is, we have a far stronger line up available than the one starting.. worse than 4-6-0

Fair enough but I've just read that Kaz beat us 3-0. I'd managed to obliterate that from the memory bank.
