 We’re Back!
Topic Originator: ParfectXI  
Date:   Mon 14 Jun 09:54

So Scotland’s back after 23 years! If you could pick a team from the ages to take on the Euros what would it be?

Mines

Leighton

Andy Robertson
Alex McLeish
Willie Miller
Tommy Gemmell

Davie Cooper
Souness
Scott Brown
Jimmy Johnstone

Ally McCoist
Kenny Dalglish

A couple of these weren’t amazing players but the passion they brought to the team inspired others.

Goram

Bremner Souness Baxter

Johnstone Law Dalglish

One up front and an off form one at that - does not fill me with confidence. I truly hope to be proved wrong.

You can't say Dykes is of form , he is playing the role he's been asked to play, IMHO he is playing well too

As a Scotland fan you don`t expect things to run smoothly - but usually things go wrong after the game has started!

When are we likely to get another chance to play two games at home in an international tournament? Let`s hope that works to our advantage.

Oh, come on Sergio. You've got us beat before we start. These players will be buzzing - besides our record against the Czechs isn't too shabby - and that includes when they could pick Slovaks as well. Just a pity Joe Jordan and Jim Holton are no longer available. I can feel ma guid Scots blood stirring already. ☺

Maybe the OP can add Scotland v Czech Republic to the thread heading?

Southgate made a few questionable picks before their game at the weekend and they worked well do hoping for the same here.

I would have like to have seen another forward too. It'll be key how far away those more attacking midfielders are from Dykes.

Slightly different when Southgate has the luxury of picking Raheem Sterling & Kieran Trippier.

As for the game itself, not a fan of the line up, this is a game we have to think about winning so would’ve liked to see a bit more going forward.

Quality has lacked and let us down at times.

Desire is there though and had the good opportunity with Robertson, just need to take the chance when it next comes.

My choice....

Goram... Unbeatable on his day.

Gough / McQueen / McLeish / Narey (Narey for that toe poke alone) 🤣

Souness / Wark / Roy Aitken
A midfield to put the fear into any opposition..

Joe Jordan / McCoist / Dalglish
In my view three of the best we've ever had.

A bit harsh on Slim Jim: he played against England 5 times and was on the winning side 4 times. Not many international footballers can claim that.

Denis played 8 games against England and was only on the losing side twice.

I don`t think Scotland entered the Euro Championship tournament until 1968. Our World Cup attempts in 1962 and 1966 (only 16 teams made the finals then) were thwarted by injuries when key matches had to be played.

Agreed. Marshall had a really good game yesterday but will always remembered for one error of judgement. Shame

He did have a good game, Da.
It’s professional sport, though and it goes with the territory.
He will be remembered more for the penalty save against Serbia, I would guess, that got us there?
In terms of yesterday’s result, the manager has to take the lion’s share of the blame for the way he set up the team.
Two games left to try and retrieve the situation now

any reason why the match thread was closed? First time in 23 years at a major finals and fans can`t debate the result?

If the late great John White hadn’t have died tragically in his prime many reckon Scotland would have qualified in 1966.

Agree, not sure why it’s closed.

In response to GG Riva in that thread, the Clarke post match interview said something very similar that if he was on his line he would save it which did indicate he wasn’t trying the sweeper keeper nonsense. Hendry should’ve passed it yes, but the implications of losing the ball that far up the pitch shouldn’t have resulted in a goal.

Marshall did do well the rest of the game in his defence but he was 100% to blame for that second goal.

Everyone is missing the simple fact , IF he was in his box, the shot would never have been taken in the first place!

Exactly I'm not sure why DA thinks its lazy to point that out. Quite often there are multiple failings in a goal and one person gets unfairly saddled with too much blame but that goal is a doddle to analyse.

Hendry makes a mistake by hitting it as he should know there is nobody behind him on the right side of the pitch if he gives it away but it shouldn't be a mistake that leads to a goal.

Marshall looks like he's waiting for a ball back from a kick off he's that far out of position. It doesn't matter what other saves he's made when you're just looking at the goal. If he's anywhere near the goal the striker likely doesn't even attempt the finish.

Oh well, we'll agree to differ slightly on that, Berry. No one's right and no one's wrong. I think we agree that both Hendry and Marshall must share the blame, but I think Hendry's more at fault as he needlessly lost possession. Without his error, Marshall couldn't have compounded it.

I agree if he was on his line he would've saved it, but the Czech player has a free run on goal from the half way line anyway so may well have been a goal anyway.

When you see the aerial shot from when Marshall is out his goal, the options Hendry had available but he chose to shoot from that distance, knowing there was no cover behind him was mindblowingly awful.
