9mins make that 2-0. 4 defenders in a line but nobody looking to the winger coming in from his line.

They'll be reet. They were 31-0 down on Saturday and still almost won.
I'd forgotten about this game, will get the TV on and hopefully see a flood of further goals (in both ends).

Honestly made my day.


They spent the entire summer supporting anyone who played us and laughing at us for going out against Croatia in WC semis and here they are getting hammered off Kazakhstan, an absolute joke of a nation.

Can't wait for the day they get their "independence" and **** off back to the EU to become the next Greece

The ERG is demanding that Alex McLeish be put in charge of Brexit negotiations. Apparently he'd have us out of Europe in 90 minutes.

Plenty of atmosphere (about half the Earth's) but not much of a crowd and less noise than emanates from the BL on a bad day.

From the Daily Mash:

Scotland now in danger of losing to fictional countries
21st March 2019

THE Scottish national football team is now the underdog against a range of made-up countries.

Following a 3-0 defeat to Kazakhstan, Scotland fans are now dreading matches against places that exist only in literature or fantasy role playing games.

Bill McKay, from Edinburgh, said: “Ruritania, Lilliput and the druids from beyond the Ultra-Forest of Kwang must be relishing the prospect.

“At this point we need a fictional manager. I’d like us to show a bit of ambition and approach Eleven from Stranger Things.”

Current Scotland manager Alex McLeish said: “There are no minnows in world football anymore, even if their most popular sport is horseback sword-fighting.”

He added: “We did force the keeper to make an above average save.”

San Marino, Scotland's next opponents, are ranked 211th in the FIFA world rankings, which
makes them 211th out of, err....211. :D

Mind you, till 2014, San Marino were ranked equally with Bhutan.
Which was nice.

Bhutan are hot, dudes.
