Embarrassing thing on that front is scotland is a football country. 
 

other nations like denmark, they have big crowds for hand ball, hockey, basketball and other sports. Scotland are obsessed with 1 sport and are fucking shite at it

Agreed, you would think we would have learned out to play the fucking game.

With Austria doing the biz so far in Moldova not a good night for us. 2 - 0 flattered us and I think the Danes took their foot off the pedal second half rather than us improving.

Second half was better but wouldn’t be hard first half was pathetic. 
Pressed higher second half with a bit more urgency and I didn’t think young Gilmore gave the ball away second  half which was good. Ferguson is now an international so another few million on his price tag

First half was an embarrassment.

Second half was better, but still absolutely no cutting edge and Denmark looked like they were playing in 2nd gear.

Anyone who'd seen any of the Euros would have seen this result coming.

I'd have taken a 2-0 defeat as a positive result before kick off although I was obviously hoping for an ugly draw

No wonder with our anti-football mentality. Our coaches never back our players to play football - it’s always clichéd nonsense from us. During the Euros, Chick Young actually compared our team selection to playing at school - where you would pick the best players for the team. That’s the level of our intelligence in this country. No shock to see Robertson appear on the right. We’re a joke and will only progress in the short term by hiring another foreign coach who actually succeeds by playing football, and not because of “dig” or “passion”. Those attributes could turn a good team into a great team, but that’s all we seem to bring - pathetic.

really getting shown up here , why are we so shite ????????

We're shite because the people who run Scottish football make Stewart Milne look like an actively involved genius by comparison. We're shite because our national game is run like a social club for the benefit of a few guys in blazers. 

We're shite because nothing ever changes for as long as these guys have their seat on the team plane, their trips abroad, and a social calendar filled with day drinking and lodge meetings. We're shite because the journos who should be asking tough questions are instead getting fat on succulent lamb.

We're shite because we're led by shite for the benefit of shite. I don't even know the name of the shite who currently runs the SFA, but I guarantee you he's a 'pure gallus byraway' useless piece of shite. 

That's why we're shite.

We have more than enough players these days to pick a side and not play folk out of position. Its so frustrating. No other country in the world would have Andy Robertson and play him anywhere other than left back. There is absolutely no need to play him right wing back. 

McTominey in defense. Ryan Fraser up front. 

Thought Clarke seemed a reasonable shout for the job but I really don't get the system he is fixated on. We aren't playing to our strengths at all

Agreed,play them in their correct position.McInnes was one of the worst for this.

It's time we just went out and actually played our way instead of trying to stifle other teams.

Might take a few hidings on the way but it's the only way to improve.

At least it would be more exciting.

This has to be true. Their must be an arrogance. They all think they are brilliant cause they play in the English Prem or in Glasgow.... yet Wales / N. Ireland / Republic seem to get results while chucking out Championship sides

The thing that bugs me is its a waste of a wikend and the cunts are shite.

The sooner international fitba is binned the better imo. The beauts who follow it would likely just go and watch the wifies team.

At least its not as money driven. I wish Scotland were better so I could have an interest....

Club football is on the decline for me. Too many driven, at least international football doesn't have that. Club football is driven toward thickos from Africa and Asia who will give all their money to Man U and Real Madrid. If Scotland can produce a good team, then we dominate. If Aberdeen produce a good team, they all leave on bosmans or go for pennies to championship teams.

A lot of our players are meant to be good tho and laying in the supposed best league in the world so why can’t we get a decent team

Steve Clarke getting a new two year deal shows that the SFA are not that fussed about progression. Clarke came in and done a rewasonable job to get us to Euro 2020 but it is obvious his tactics and management are suited to the likes of a Kilmarnock who have a team of shite to pick from. Back to front as quick as possible and press in the hope you carve out an opportunity. See czech and Croatia games as proof it's how he sets up his teams. 

We have done fuck all apart from draw with England. Someone who can get the best out of a team with some decent players is needed. Clarke doesn't have a fucking clue

Scotland don’t have a decent striker which is a bit of a problem. I think Clarke has his issues but he is better than a lot of what went before and he’s better than McInnes.

Even our new manager seems to love this strategy. Fill the squad with midfielders because they are decent back up to fill in in most other positions but end up with this as a permanent ‘trend’ 

 

None of the teams that actually do well & play decent football resort to this strategy out of anything other than injury/suspension desperation 

 

when was the last time we actually fielded a starting 11 with all in their best/natural positions?

What I dont get is the style of play appears nothing like at Kilmarnock. Killie would sit in then catch you on the counter with their decent SPFL standard full backs a huge part of it, Taylor and O'Donnell. They would play a back 4 and move it forward fast when the chance came.

Suddenly Clarke is Scotland manager and he is obsessed with a back 3 and wing backs. The midfield is our strongest part of the team yet don't seem to be involved in any of the play. Just play a back 4, use your full backs and have another player in midfield. 

What frustrated me with Strachan was the team he should have been picking appeared to be obvious for years... it took him till his last 6 months or so to start picking it. We started getting results but by then it was too late and he was away. Now watching Clarke as manager it is the same. We have the players but he is picking bizarre teams and formations. Prick

If you look at the formation we are playing it’s generally a 3 6 1 or 3 5 2, but very rarely 2 up front. We are Playing 3 at the back to get in both Robertson and tierney in the team then try and get as many of the midfielders into the he can

Hes only playing 3 midfielders if hes got Dykes and Adams on. Then completely bypassing the midfield by hoofing it over the top of them. He basically wants Robertson and Tierney to do the same job, which is retarded
