Surely Clarke will get his jotters after this shambles.

 

The first goal they tried it about 4 times before scoring.  Any manager worth his salt would have made adjustments.

Of course he won't. Covid will be his excuse. Said already, his contract was extended although we haven't beaten a decent team within 90 minutes, in a meaningful game, for an absolute age.

Name a name then?   Clarke is perfect for Scotland.  

 

Like I say what's the point ?

Fact is most countries have players playing at Europe's best teams. We have Norwich, Newcastle, QPR. Our two players with genuine quality are the two full backs who are in the same position.

Craig not doing himself justice here.  He's like a celtic player in a European game. 


What’s he done wrong? I’ve only seen the second goal and that’s a great finish not a goalkeeping error. He had to make himself big.

Best thing since sliced bread according to some on here as well. Still dining out on a Carabao Cup game about 2 years ago. A decent performance against England to be fair but vastly exaggerated by the Scottish media. Still only 20 though I think, so not writing him off yet. 

I got dogs abuse for suggesting Gilmour had it all to prove this season. He is nowhere near standard of Smith-Rowe, Saka, Foden, Sancho, Mount and loads of others in England, and is hyped beyond belief. Tuchel plays loads of youngsters and got rid of him as soon as he could.

Well feck off then 

He’ll be one of thousands who’ve fecked off due to the dross we’ve put out over the past 20/25 years. We’re $#!te. Get over yourself. Scotland couldn’t beat an egg. No guts to change it up. Throw in youngsters, take the beatings but stay with them.

We took players to tournaments knowing they were injured and wouldn’t play. How can that be seen as normal. 
“Thanks for helping us qualify 8 months ago. Now get tae feck”

Nope we bring them for a wee jolly. We’re amateurs when it comes to football. We’re run by idiots, who hire idiots, who play idiots.

Donkey sanctuary emptied to fill our back 3. Never mind Soutar even Halkett is looking good by comparison. Bit of a test for Clarke to change things at half time. Can't be worse than the first quarter...can it😫

First goal was like Kanes a few years ago and he’s a bit slow at reacting to the play for the second goal. 
Still the best Scotland has though.

Who plays their best player out of position, bad enough playing McKenna and his golden boy Maclean 🤔🤷🏾‍♂️
Clarke and his long ball defensive football well out his depth.

It's a good contrast on how to play football. Denmark are playing like Scotland did when we were better. 

 

The basic problem is the Scotland players can't keep possession. Every time we got forward we lost the ball.

Have we even had a shot at goal? 

Just heard tom English saying we haven't had a shot on goal.  

I know it's unacceptable to change which club you support, but can you change your international team?  

We are pathetically the laughing stick of the home nations.  

We are being laughed at by Welsh and northern Irish fans.  

Clarke has just signed a contract extension so he is here for at least another couple of years.

Very poor tonight. 

 

Robertson as RWB is not working as he cannot use his right foot, Fraser should have been given that role. Tierney and Robertson should have been in their usual roles. Hanley in the centre and Hendry on the right.

 

Christie and Dykes should have started too.

The only one who calls it as he sees it.  The rest are too scared to offend anyone so Clarke never gets pulled up by them.

We tried 3-5-2 with Tiernay in the three and Robertson at left wing back and it didn’t work.

 

We changed to 3-4-3 and that worked ok.

 

Now we have reverted to 3-5-2 but this time we have decided to play arguably the best left back in the world at right wing back.

 

I can guarantee you Robertson would be having a field day if he was playing in the Denmark 4-3-3.

Utter pish. 

 

I'm switching over to the England v New Zealand women's T20 cricket.

 

Mind you the football could be a cricket score...

Scotland straight from the 2nd half kick off... HOOOOOF!

 

Eye bleeding football.

Scotland never seem to be able to put together as cohesive team. And they’ve never had enough cunning in their play, generally, for long enough. 
 

Last player who had something resembling genuine attitude and quality was McFadden. Admittedly, my interest in Scotland fluctuates and I’ve maybe forgotten the odd other decent player in the last 20 years. But I think that says it all for me.

Tell you what, if Aberdeen managed to get 3 mil for McKenna then Souttar must be worth double that

Based on what? He's barely played 90 minutes in a meaningful club match for Chelsea and has been ineffectual for an admittedly pish Norwich.

On tonight's performance, he doesn't deserve to start next game.

I’m only watching it to see how craig gordon is playing. I want him to be a colossus for us but he’s been let down by amateur defending. The Scotland national team are broken by years of neglect. It all went tits up after the souness revolution for the blue erse cheek imo. It’s like someone turned a tap off and all the talent disappeared. Mexico 86 was the last time we has a decent team to speak of. This result doesn’t surprise me. The only thing that does is, it should be more.

Every time we get the ball, Denmark press the life out of us. When Denmark have the ball, Adams and Dykes press a little bit but there is so much space for the Danish midfielders anyway that it's a waste of time; so frustrating to watch.

He couldn't care less about Scotland at football.  An Irish ***** paid loads when he's a rugby man.  

Maybe a blessing in disguise.  If he was one of tbe usual types in bbc sport Scotland, we wouldn't hear anything in our game being questioned.  

I think he is a breath of fresh air.  Though that might be more down to how bad his colleagues are rather than him being that good.

Sadly no one seems to be taking any real responsibility is trying to improve things. 

We'll probably get another report commissioned from.the sfa.
