    WCQ 2022: Qualifiers for Qatar's Questionable Quagmire

    The Peruvian Sash. I hated it when I was a kid, and I was probably in my 30's when I finally let it go. Scotland in Argentina for WC 1978. I was just a child but I had an excuse.... grown men and grand fathers were taken in by Ally MacLeod and his mindless ethusiasm and relentless optimism. I...

    WCQ 2022: Qualifiers for Qatar's Questionable Quagmire

    For years I thought that thread was about gray hound racing and finally took a gander after the race track out at Revere had closed and due to the ban on dog racing. It was a WTF moment for me.

    I’m sure he’s still in touch with a few regulars here, seemed like a good bloke.

    WCQ 2022: Qualifiers for Qatar's Questionable Quagmire

    The whole “what’s a natural position and what isn’t for a handball” is a dumpster fire. I played at a reasonably high level and If you slide tackle your arms go out . You’re throwing you’re entire body behind the block. Now you see defenders put their arms behind their back like they are hog...

    This would be news to me if they are. I’m not saying they aren’t. But I’ve never seen anything written about it.

    It would never have been a Scotland game if they didn’t tease you with a bit of hope in second half. Congrats Ukraine … slay the the Dragons and perhaps the U.S.

    Scotland midfield being dragged out of position non stop, Ukraine can pick their pass. Switch to a back 4, take off Dykes.. bring on Christie or Armstrong.

    Scotland are a shambles. Should have stuck with Christie in midfield and only played one up. I’m trying to think of the last time they played 2 up that wasn’t a friendly .

    Howe Soon Is Now? - Scottish Fitbaw 21/22

    It's an interesting contrast....Ukraine have been training like a club side since May, whereas Scottish players have been busy with domestc leagues etc. I'm sure the Ukrainian team will get a solid welcome from the home fans. The SFA will be handing out the lyrics to the Ukrainian national...

    Howe Soon Is Now? - Scottish Fitbaw 21/22

    The Scottish National team have a busy couple of weeks coming up. At least 4 matches, possibly 5 depending on what happens today. It all kicks off with the WC qualifier at Hampden against Ukraine. Winner plays wales. I'm sure there are a lot of neutrals rooting for Ukraine for obvious reasons...

    When Liverpool stops being polite...and starts getting Real: The UCL Final

    Loved that goal. One RM player took out 3 Liverpool players at once.
