It’s getting confusing. So, they’re taking a knee at Wembley but standing at Hampden. The first game against a team who are missing a player because of a 10 match ban for racist abuse ? Would that not be the game where you showed solidarity ?

Typical Scotland only trying to wind up the English. I wouldn'r put it past wee Krankie to suggest it.

They are just doing what sellick did to us at the 2005 semi when the Pope died.

Good. Showing unity with the England players getting abuse from the morons is important as it's much bigger than football. Solidarity for 10 seconds then boot them off the park for 90 minutes.

Not sure why it's for one game only though, if you feel that's the correct stance it should be consistent. Especially against the Czechs after what's gone before.

The suggestion seems to be that they'll show anti-racist solidarity in a different way at Hampden?

Sturgeon interfering here? Keep politics out of the game please. I'm ambivalent on the knee taking but have issues with the raised fist salute some indulge in. The punter there for football is within his/her rights to object that imo without the likes of 'Rio' calling them out.

Deflects off Italian Umbrella's poor effort though. 👍🏻

I think it would be more fititng to all come out wearing t-shirts saying 'Show racism the red card' on the front and 'Show BLM the red card on the back'

The knee thing is always going to be open to accusations of political influence. That, to me, is the reason there is so much controversy.

The best thing UEFA did was both teams, alternately placed, holding a Kick Out Racism banner. 
Why not just do that ? It was as clear a message as this one. More so, considering there may be games where some teams are standing, some kneeling…!

Ffs !

Is there any evidence there has been political interference. Surely she would want to be different from England? 😂

BLM have put racial tensions back 50 years.  It really is causing huge resentment.

If it was a Sturgeon decision then without the slightest shadow of doubt she would put her name to it so for this reason I actually don't think it is.

She could not tolerate toary England being more woke than the boys in blue. Must have been a wee zoom call to the SFA from oor Nicola.

Exactly. I don't get the kneeling thing. For me it's just antagonism to those that disagree... pouring fuel on the fire, if you like. It's not sorting anything - only keeping the problem front and centre. It's forcing teams and players to make a choice... and others to judge them on what they do.

As you say, bring out a banner, set it down. Play the game.

I would have more respect for the  English fans who boo if they just admitted  they are racist ALF Garnetts.

At least the east europeans dont try and sugercoat their behaviour

The only knee I will be doing is a good old 'knees up' when we beat the English.

The big problem we have is sectarianism which as usual is ignored,  our authorities are spineless wankers

None of them boo 'Show racism the red card' so your logic is flawed.

Yip.

Fact is, they’ll kneel at one game and stand for the other two. 
There may well have been a bit of pressure exerted for the Wembley game as it would have looked strange with one team kneeling and one standing. Think that’s what’s happened here. 
Anyway fours hours to KO. Time to concentrate on the football.

Folk getting angry over it, but they don't even know why. 

They just think they need to be angry over it, so are. 

 

😂😂

 

The world's ****ed. 

About One half of the population enjoys being  selfish arseholes and being horrible to everyone else, however the other half or so seem to actively seek new  ways to be offended. 

 

It's all ****ed. 

 

Those few stuck in the middle are just like

Maybe they want to show solidarity for the players who will be playing on the day who are racially abused week on week, remember some of the Scotland players are team mates with those and also a couple of the Scotland squad may have also experienced this in the EPL

I respect teams that stand and teams that kneel assuming that the teams that stand are still making a statement which is the case with Scotland.  They are simply kneeling at Wembley to show solidarity with the English players particulary those that are subject to continued abuse on social media (who are these people?).  I think it's the right thing to do.

Politics includes activities aimed at improving someone's status or increasing their power within a country or group.

 

Tell me how the knee taking/raised fist/traditional race politics militancy is not fully within that definition.

I was talking about you flying in with the Sturgeon patter, for a change.

So it's not about George Floyd/BLM but more wealthy footballers taking abusive tweets/messages on social media? Need some clarity from Nicola and the SFA. 'The fight against racism' line doesn't wash with most people, or at least 51% in Scotland going by the Sky poll I just looked at.

So you don't like teams that sit!

Of course, and nothing wrong with that.

If it is that simple, that’s great but I don’t think there is any clear directive from UEFA on this, hence the differing stances, if you’ll pardon the pun.

UEFA know they need to tread carefully with the knee thing as their own rules on political actions are very clear. It’s a bit of a minefield for them.

Anyway, I’ve said my bit and Kick Out Racism by teams was clear. This is causing all sorts of division, which is terrible for the people trying to highlight racism in the first place !

 

Pub ! 
Enjoy the game tonight, folks !

You never suspect her of anything do you? If she kicked your dog off a cliff in front of your eyes you'd claim it was a slip.
