AWP's bubbling about Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet these days. 😉

Sourness was immense in that game.
It was a fantastic all round performance and so bloody frustrating we made it so hard for ourselves in the previous games.

Arguably the best ever Scotland performance.

Can't believe the sheer ability of those players, Souness was outstanding, and it's easy to forget how sweet a player he was.

We completely dominated the Netherlands, guys like Hartford who nowadays would be our best player we're pretty run of the mill then (he was always great for Scotland)

Gemmill you forget could switch it too.

We got the easiest draw we could have got and blew it big time ,to view this as anything more than a pretty poor effort just compounds the looser mentality .

Agreed. We let ourselves down badly that year with an outstanding squad.

Personally, I’ve never forgotten what a fine player Souness was. He could run a game from midfield, could pick a great pass and, famously (or infamously) knew how and when to make a telling tackle. This latter side to his game could certainly inflame opposition fans, but this never seemed to trouble him one jot.

He was an integral part of a truly outstanding Liverpool team. I lived in Switzerland for the year in which Liverpool won the European cup (1980-81) and I followed them round a pre-season Swiss tour. It was then I learned to appreciate just how outstanding a player Souness was. He strolled through games effortlessly, and in the season ‘80-‘81 he was joint top scorer in the European cup.

We would have qualified if we'd brought Tony Hadley on as a sub...

*sigh*

I love it when we go sell Kevin Nisbet,
He's gonna pay for everyone this season.

Even when we are great, we are losers. Being Scottish is a good laugh sometimes.
