Ya Dancer! Scotland Keep The World Cup Dream Alive!

Another late winner for Scotland has kept their World Cup dream alive and now we have our fate in our own hands. The Tartan Army support at Hampden roared the team home and in truth the Scots fully deserved the result as they bossed much of the game. Slovakia made their own job difficult with […]

Can Scotland Dare To Dream?

Scotland went to Lithuania and produced a fine away performance, winning the game 3-0! The result keeps the Tartan Army dreaming about going to the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Although Slovakia’s late winner against Slovenia means our task is still a difficult one. The Scots now sit third in Group F and four points […]

Celtic’s Callum McGregor Should Definitely Be In Scotland Squad

Gordon Strachan has named his latest Scotland squad that will take on Lithuania and Malta in September’s World Cup qualifiers. The squad is full of familiar faces as Strachan goes with players that he knows well. A few might have wondered about call-ups; Johnny Russell, Graeme Shinnie, Ryan Jack, Barrie McKay, Graham Dorrans, Kenny McLean […]

Scotland Fans Have The Right To Boo One Of Their Own

Football has quite a few topics that create great debate and division between those that love the game. Off the top of my head such topics include players not celebrating against former teams, whether a challenge merited a red card or not and should Arsene Wenger leave Arsenal or stay forever. In Scotland last night […]

My views on why Leigh Griffiths should start for Scotland!

Discussing The Failings Of Scotland

  My views on Scotland’s woeful performances this week.

Negativity Again Blights Scotland’s World Cup Chances

I stated earlier in the week that Gordon Strachan was wrong to state that Scotland’s game against Lithuania wasn’t a ‘must win’ fixture. Last night the Tartan Army support watched their team play without much in the way of urgency and any real cutting edge. The Scotland team started the game like it wasn’t a […]

Rangers Star Barrie McKay Shows He Is Ready For The Hampden Stage

  I was surprised that Gordon Strachan didn’t select Rangers youngster Barrie McKay for either of Scotland’s friendlies last month. Since the turn of the year I’ve said, on here and on twitter, that I thought the winger was ready to take his place in Scotland’s senior squad. Alas Strachan felt uninspiring Celtic wide-man James Forrest […]

Strachan’s Scotland Squads Leave Many Scratching Their Heads

So Gordon Strachan has called up two squads for Scotland’s up coming friendlies against the Czech Republic and Denmark. Both games will take place later this month. The squads are as follows: To face Czech Republic Goalkeepers: Scott Bain (Dundee), Allan McGregor Hull City). Defenders: Christophe Berra (Ipswich Town), Gordon Greer (Brighton), Alan Hutton (Aston Villa), Russell […]

Scotland: Gordon Strachan’s Trust Is Misplaced

Deja vu really should be a Scottish expression, especially when it comes to our national team. In 2007, Alex McLeish decided to stick with an exciting Scottish side who were doing well in their Euro’s qualifying group and took on Georgia in Tbilisi. That night the Scots came unstuck and were woeful as Georgia won […]
