Czechs aren`t any better to be fair. Thought we have done ok .We have actually already had more efforts on goal than when we beat them 1-0. O`Donnell had a poor first touch and been having a nightmare since.

We were doing fine, the one frustrating part is when we are playing from the back there’s no link to the midfield so it’s constantly going long.

When we beat them in the last game they actually pummelled us with 17 shots and 69% possession-we had one on target and scored. That certainly hasn`t been the case today. If in play stats are right we have had more shots and possession not that it counts for much though. We can still take something here.

Scotland has flattered to deceive. Rose-tinted specs, etc. The Czechs are the more organised team and have been far more threatening going forward.

Let`s hope Scotland can turn it around and KN gets a chance to shine today.

The Czech crossing had been very poor up until the goal with all their corners being overhit. I wouldn`t blame Hanley too much at the goal for the Czech striker Schik is a big, powerful player.
As WSQ said though, too much being hit long down the middle. In terms of other games it`s been scrappy; we look most dangerous when we can play in Robertson down the left.

Czech have been more composed throughout when on the ball and going forward.

We’ve had more gusto about us and more possession but aside from the Robertson chance (a very good chance) we haven’t actually done that much.

Dykes has been infuriating today. Nisbet a far far superior player. Jobs for the boys stuff. Disgusted with that from Clarke today . There has been no control in our play . You play a lump of wood like dykes and it turns in to long hopeful punts.

I agree with that. A bit defensive naivety on the big stage cost us massively plus we just don't have a big game clinical striker. Definitely a different team with Adams on the pitch. Think we'll do well to get anything other than a doing on Friday personally.

But at least we're here to take part.

Hard to evaluate that. Can`t remember the last time we had 19 efforts and superior possession against a team like the Czechs but couldn`t argue with the result. Before the game I thought we could win but it would be backs to the wall but it didn`t transpire like that.

Games like that are decided on moments and the Czechs took their chances. They rode their luck in defence in my opinion with a number of sclaffs and deflections going their way.

I was disappointed in McTominay and McGinn. He has a bad habit of going down early in anticipation of a foul tackle but the ref wasn`t buying it today.

Darren Fletcher is a pretty good analyst I think. You can see why Man Utd have added him to their backroom staff.

To me it was an even game that just didn`t go our way. The first goal just before half-time was a sore one as, although it wasn`t a hammering, we`d been slightly the better side in the first half and had certainly done enough to get to half-time at 0-0. Second half wasn`t as good but even then there were still a few decent chances to get back into it.

One team scored while the other didn`t, so fair enough, they deserved to win because of that. A disappointing start and although the result was not a travesty, it definitely wasn`t the horrendous display that some folk seemed to see.

Some people on here clearly aren't emotionally equipped to support either the Pars or Scotland.

As far as the game goes, I thought we were alright. Created plenty of chances but Dykes doesn't score goals so no surprise he didn't take any. O'Donnell can't play international football any more either. The opposition can literally leave him free to get the ball, knowing there's no threat. Has to be a better option out there.

Our defence looked really shaky to me. Far too much dithering. Seemed not to know what to do with it. Lots of sideways passing or back to the keeper. And when the ball was launched forwards it was a long punt more often than not. Yes, we had our chances and on another day we might have scored from a couple, but we didn’t, and that leaves us a mountain to climb. We’ve really got to sharpen up massively for the England game and generally up our tempo. Otherwise I fear it could be a bloodbath.

Was a very even game, we weren't bad but O'Donnell definitely shouldn't play the other games, nowhere near good enough. Schick is a top class striker and proved to be the difference, we squandered a few chances and none of the deflections went for us.

Don't understand why McGregor got brought on over Gilmour, he's honking in a Scotland top. Mistakes just cost us, the cross for the first goal wasn't shut down and the second goal Hendry makes a stupid decision to shoot when he's part of the last back and Marshall is way too far off his line, albeit it's a terrific strike.

For a lot of the game we played OK but we weren't unlucky. I've lost count of the number of goals we've conceded from crosses and I honestly thought some of our lesser light back ups have done a better job in that respect compared to our starting 11 today.

O'Donnell was really poor with the ball and I also thought the second batch of subs were badly timed as we'd arguably just had our best spell of the second half and the subs seemed to break up our rhythm a bit.

Not a terrible performance but it was a terrible result and some fairly basic mistakes at both goals although they were extremely well taken in fairness to the striker.

I would have thought the choice was between Adams and Christie rather than Adams and Dykes. Re O`Donnell most pundits are of the view he has never let Scotland down and the only obvious alternative was an untried young lad. With Tierney out injured you can understand why he didn`t want to make an unenforced change in defence. There are all sorts of factors relevant to team selections that fans are not privy to.

I'd not have Dykes in the team and play Adams with whoever seems to link well with him in training - probably Ryan Fraser if he's fit.

I hate the phrase 'never let Scotland down'. He needs to be better than someone who has not done anything catastrophic just yet.

While I thought the team selection was a bit strange we did have 19 attempts on goal which is way more than I expected - if we’d put away a couple of the chances and Marshall hadn’t had such a shocker for the second goal then most people on here would have been saying what a great performance it was - our thoughts are generally swayed by the final result.

England fans seem very pleased by what I felt was an average performance this week - if they hadn’t won they’d have been seriously questioning why Grealish and Sancho weren’t playing.

I would agree that the game was fairly even but we didn`t have enough guile to guard against the sucker punch. Games ebb and flow. Scotland came out all guns blazing but didn`t score and then when the Czechs had a bit of possession we lost concentration for a moment and it was 1-0. The second goal finished the game and was extremely embarrassing that Marshall was so far off the goal line. Some of the pre match punditry was naive to say the least. One commentator was on the verge of calling this the greatest Scottish team of all time. We didn`t really gel as a team. Dykes did get to some high balls but is by no means a top class striker and our back line looked jittery at times. Can`t see them doing much damage to England or Croatia but it`s up to the players to convince the fans that they have the quality to compete at this level.

I thought we did OK in the first half and had a couple of decent chances. Second half I thought we were awful and nobody really stood up to the plate to try and retrieve the game. O'Donnell is really out of his depth at this level unfortunately and Dykes up front didn't really work out at all. Clarke needs to carry the blame for that starting line up - thought we were far too cautious.

We did create decent chances, but that's cause the opposition were a poor team. Imagine what could've been if Adams had 90 minutes in about that defense. We were at home to a team ranked in the 40s and we went safety first. We are never going to have an opportunity like that again in a major tournament to pick up 3 points. I looked at the lineup on the SFA twitter feed and was confused. I almost thought they had the starting 11 and the bench mixed up. Absolute brutal from Clarke.

Is having so many attempts at goal always a good way to measure a performance?

Let’s not forget Czech Republic could have easily bagged 3, 4, 5 goals themselves.

I felt we were too frantic, lacked composure at times, the desire was there, the commitment was there but the quality was lacking. Too many loose passes and loss of control of the ball.

We had the lions share of possession at the start but nothing really came of it, Czechs were struggling, we had the blueprint there on how to beat them but just never tested the keeper during that time.

When Czechs had the ball on the odd occasion, they looked more composed had shots on target, it wasn’t a surprise to me that they nicked a goal before HT, any Scotland fan should’ve seen that coming the way our stories are generally written.

The chances we did have, again quality lacking, Robertson I felt could have done a bit better, Dykes should’ve scored, we were just poor today and the pace that the game was played at and the possession we had made it feel like we had a bit more about us.

That second goal quite frankly was criminal, cracking strike but what Marshall was doing where he was is indefensible really.

It was a sucker punch and ended the tie for me, we were all over the place for a while after that.

Tactically I thought Clarke got it completely wrong, to qualify, realistically we had to beat the Czechs, that wasn’t a side on paper that would’ve given us a best chance.

Dykes has a role to play but in that game we should’ve had Adams on from the start as well.

Some players underperformed, didn’t even realise Christie was on at the time he was subbed, Armstrong was below par, McGinn didn’t perform and ofcourse whilst you have the likes of O’Donnell, Hanley in your team we’re not really doing ourselves much favours from the get go.

England on Friday, i actually think we’ll play really well, don’t know why, just the way Scotland are. Still think we’ll lose with Croatia becoming a dead rubber for us.

I don’t mind us losing, it’s expected, what’s frustrating is when we don’t give ourselves the best opportunity to win, that’s what disappoints me most.

Didn't see first half as was still in my w@nking chariot after nightshift. From what I seen in second half Marshall was a disgrace being that far up the park ( only time a keeper should be that far up is taking a long free kick)

That ultimately cost us. I couldn't see any way back after that as the Czechs could sit in. We had a few chances. Hendry hitting the bar, a few chances felt we could have stretched them out a bit more using wings better. Played a few through balls that cut right through their defense.
Wouldn't write us off just yet.

There is a few fans on here quite consistent. High expectations. We have never been consistent with our performances and we do blow hot and cold. Pre tourney I didn't believe we could get out of group. Hopeful but doubted it. You never know against England it is always a different level we lift ourselves to against them.

Hours later and third post on this. They were there for the taking. It was a game we had to win and should have won. Why can't a Scotland manager just pick the best 11 available to him it's really Simple. We had chances. Nothing seemed to fall our way. First goal no arguments really. Bowt Hendry should never have attempted a 3 mile shot on Goal but you would think keepers would learn by now not to wander out of their area. It happens time and time again. Great finish but was very preventable. What really annoyed me was the heads down attitude from most player after the second goal. Substitutions were questionable.

I don't think that's true at all. There were 2 mistakes (made by Hendry and Marshall) for their second. It came about through rank decision making by our players and killed the game.

But that's churlish to take away the finish. It's a once in a career shot. That's what happens when you have a top class attacking player and you don't leave him on the bench.

No doubt it was a great finish but I couldn`t see Steve Clarke telling his keeper to be almost up at the half way line. Well out of position-Their forwards were more target men and weren`t troubling us in behind. He`s not exactly Manuel Neuer with the ball at his feet either.

It's impossible not to focus on the negative it was terrible goal keeping and he was way out of position. Most professional footballer should be able to hit an open goal even if it is the half way line

It was a great goal but Hendry is at fault first and foremost for trying the shot when a pass wide was a better option and Marshall is in a crazy position and invites that shot. As I say great goal and maybe goes in one in ten but there are ways of trying to prevent that.

Yeah he was far too far off his line I agree but the guy has to still produce a world class piece of skill to take advantage.

Also Marshall had at least 4 or 5 top class saves to prevent more damage, as did their keeper.

If Marshall was in goals, doing his job he would’ve saved it.

True, but if Jack Hendry slips the ball wide right to an unmarked team mate, instead of blasting it against a defender 5 yards away, the chance doesn`t arise. Marshall certainly wasn`t blameless, but he had company if we must apportion blame instead of praising a wonder goal.

Do we know for sure that Steve Clarke hasn`t instructed Marshall to play as a sweeper keeper? Someone mentioned Manuel Neuer further up. I remember him getting caught around half way in a WC match v S. Korea.



Not your average Sunday League player.

The lazy easy thing to do is to throw blame around.

He played well yesterday.

Hendry was probably going to pass wide until he saw it was O’Donnell and then decided he might as well have a pop himself 😂

There is no way Marshall can get out of jail for his brainfart.

He should never have been anywhere near where he was positioned.

It would be good to hear Marshall`s take on the situation. In the meantime, in the best .net tradition, let`s pillory the guy.

Apart from that , He made several very good saves throughout the game. Given the number of changes that have to be made outfield I think he will start tomorrow.

The .net jury has spoken. At least Wetherby agrees that, "brainfart" apart, he had a good game.

I hope he's in goal tomorrow

I hope so too, players make mistakes all the time, unfortunately if your a keeper it usually ends badly. Hero in play-offs and deserves his place as Scotlands No1

Rumours that Billy Gilmour will replace Marshall in midfield for tomorrow.

The thing is, Schick, the goalscorer publicly stated that he had noticed Marshall well off his line several times in the first half and had decided that, if got an opportunity, he was going to have a go. It was therefore not a one off piece of opportunism, it was pre-meditated. He took advantage of a weakness that he had spotted with a terrific finish.

I doubt you will see Marshall so far off his line tomorrow night, or ever again! He did make some good saves in the game apart from that and he was probably under instruction to play like a backy keeper.
