 Horrible thought
Topic Originator: MDCCCLXXXV  
Date:   Wed 2 Jun 21:07

Whilst watching Scotland v Holland on tv, I had the horrible thought that with all the f@#king about with Celtic not appointing a new manager since Lennon left 3 months ago.
What if they have already signed a manager and they don't want to announce it until Scotland exit the Euros?

I hope I'm wrong but I can't get the idea of Stevie Clarke going to Parkhead now

He has a contract until after World Cup next year. So doubt it. If we do well in Euro's he will stay on and SFA already said they are looking to extend it.

Aye true, but that's wasn't quite a poison chalice as the tic role is right now 😂.
I can see why you think that but I dunno. I just think he has his focus on the national role. He is really making a difference with the squad and his aim will be to take us to World Cup.

Here is my horrible thought.

Those folk who persist in calling the Netherlands "Holland".

Imagine the fury if a European today referred to the UK as "England".

You are in good company though as BBC Presenters like Graham Norton and Scott Mills persisted ,in their ignorance ,at the Eurovision Song Contest.

Until January of last year the Dutch Government used the term Holland in the promotion of the whole of The Netherlands as a tourist destination.

Calling people ignorant when the Dutch government were doing exactly the same thing less than 18 months ago is a bit out of order.

Imagine if there had been fans there last night. Then imagine someone pompously taking offence on behalf of the Dutch while criticising the Dutch for singing "Hup, Holland Hup".

Most people get Holland/Netherlands wrong. Same with people who don't understand Britain and England aren't interchangeable.

No-one dies when someone gets it wrong.

I said that Graham Norton and Scott Mills were ignorant not anyone on the Forum.

They were highly paid and given research to read on the flight over.

Which they chose to ignore.

Many of us enjoy an Andre Rieu concert in Maastricht.

Maastricht is in Limburg not Holland.

There are 12 Dutch provinces and two are in Holland.

I worked in NL quite a lot over a 2 year period. They nearly all persistantly referred to Britain as England and routinely introduced me at meetings as having come over from England.

I think ,until the Independence Referendum in 2014 ,that was true of much of Europe.

Today many Dutch towns fly a Scottish flag to show their awareness of our very different attitude to Brexit.

In England itself many folk regarded Scotland as a region much like "The North" or "The Midlands".

The arrival of the pandemic meant the public became far more aware we are four UK Nations.

When you get Scottish TV News,as last night,saying we drew with "Holland" or Graham Norton saying Eurovision is coming from "Holland" the battle has not yet been won.
