Things have changed a bit since then media wise.

 

To digress, how did that Scottish national team not go further at major competitions? Dalgliesh, Souness, Hansen etc....

 

 

A huge mystery that is....

Once a blue, always a blue

Well done to KdB for winning PFA Player of the Year. Well deserved, not only for this years contribution but consistency over several seasons

'86 they were aging and it was too <deleted>in hot in Mexico. Lucky they didn't melt. 

 

'82 They had the likes of prime Dalgish, Hansen, Archibald, Souness, Brasil, Wark, Strachan, McLeish, Burley. Came against one of the best Brazilian sides and Soviet Union in the group

Hansen never really got too much of a look in as Fergie preferred his Aberdeen buddies, McLeish and Miller.

Mad though considering what a ball playing CB Hansen was. 

 

They only went out on goal difference, after losing one match in qualifying.

We were 5-0 up against New Zealand at half time then let in 2 careless ones in the second half which meant we needed to beat the USSR or go out on goal difference as I recall.

 

A farce...as that Scotland team of '82 belonged in the second round....not the Soviet lot.

1-0 up at the moment. Lovely pass by KdB to Torres to slot it in. The assist Deleted does it again

 

However, 25 minutes in now and Zinchenko and Gundogan are simply passengers. Not good enough

Doesn't help when teams just set up to defend and don't press. 70 minutes now and they need to score so think it might open up a bit

3-0, though wasn't Sterling a mile offside?

It looked close but VAR checked and gave it. They didn't put the lines up like they do in the PL so pretty hard to argue with the decision

After all the recent doom and gloom, THAT was a performance!

 

I liked the team selection, we played great, very polished, never let them in  to the game, Walker excellent again, CBs gave confidence, Foden some lovely football, etc, etc.

 

Velly goood!

Did you notice how their no:15 (Caleta-Car) played at CB? Have heard some good reports and we might need someone in Jan?

Well last night I can't say that he particularly stood out. Sub'd off at 71 minutes and scored one of the lowest player ratings of the night. On that performance alone, I hope you buy him 🤣
