 Scotland v England - 150th anniversary
Topic Originator: Raymie the Legend  
Date:   Mon 11 Sep 21:19

I`m looking forward to this game. It will certainly be no friendly and the Scots have a sporting chance of beating the auld enemy.

I`ve been listening to the build up on Talksport and guys like Danny Mills exemplify why Scotland want to get it right up them.

Let`s do it for the Big Man

COME ON, SCOTLAND

While I agree the championship games are way more important, like Steve Clark says in interviews, games like tonight are what Scotland aspire to in the coming years if we are to be successful and to compete against the top players.
Both sets of players will be right up for it given most of them play each other in domestic games so I see a cracker of a game potentially this evening.

Cyprus was the big game; but thats done and dusted now and out of the way.

This is a big game, despite being billed as a friendly. Its a chance to show we are a decent side these days that are difficult to beat and can get goals. It will also go towards world ranking points so another win would boost that and our seedings in future draws.

Also, Hampden is becoming a fortress again, and it would be outstanding to get one over on them 😁

I will obviously be watching and hoping we pump them… but genuinely can’t see the benefit of this game…

The only positive is we come out where we are, ie high moral and good momentum… the risk is the result goes against us and questions start getting asked and/or it derails us a bit.

I’d love to play England, but at the euros not in a meaningless game

I pretty much agree with this. The last time we played England in a friendly it came out after the match that Strachan and Hodgson had a pre match agreement that they would play for 60 minutes then change as much as they wanted after that. If I remember correctly, England changed pretty much their whole midfield and attack line within a matter of minutes. At that point it was no longer a proper game of football and the result was irrelevant. I won’t be surprised if something similar happens tonight tbh.

Normally I`m not, but in that case I`ll make an exception. It`s not really an Anthem for a country, it`s an Anthem for an unelected head of state.

If England had a real Anthem celebrating the country and it`s people I`d be all for it, but that`s the anthem of a tinpot dictatorship

I agree, and as a atheist Republican I’m disenfranchised twice in the first line…

But if England want to celebrate their nation by singing about being subjugated by a privileged, unelected, hereditary head of state, then we should let them get in with it in peace

As expected, England just have more quality. Bellingham, Rushford and Fodens close control is so far ahead of anyone in blue. Drawing in 3 or 4 players and still coming away with the ball.

We haven`t helped ourselves, a lot of the basics we have getting right lately seem to have went out the window. The 2nd goal especially.

But if we are going to resort to the old Scotland, I`m more than happy to get it out the way in this game as long as it doesn`t affect anything going forward

Being a Scotland fan has been amazing lately but I did get the fear organising friendlies against arguably the two best teams in the world within a month. England have played us off the park and we`re lucky to be going in only 2-0. We haven`t laid a glove on them. I fear next month v France could be much worse. I don`t know why we organise glamour friendlies like these during important campaigns when they could potentially damage confidence? Hopefully we can come out better in the second half but this England team (much as it pains me to say) are streets ahead of us. They`d blow apart most teams playing like this.

Hate to say it but We are getting a fitba lesson just now
we cannot keep the ball or pass it
As others have said how many times have we been caught out with a simple ball over the top
Maybe I am being critical but the 2 goals were avoidable especially the 2nd goal what was Robertson thing about
Hope in the second half we make more of a game of it

"England in a different league from us."

They are - down in League B while we mix it with the big boys in League A...

Not tonight though. Playing the occasion rather than the opposition, panicking and forgetting to do the basics, trying too hard to force it when it`s not on and getting caught out with simple balls over the top. England should really win the whole tournament next summer unless Southgate does something daft or they lose to France again. Bellingham is annoying and a bit of a fud but a great player, Rushford looks back to his best, they`ve ditched McGuire and Henderson... this can be anything that England want it really.

Norway keeper just made a great save to keep the game 2-1 before full time there. Almost a happy ending!

As for the Scotland game, they`re just too good for us. I do wish we were a bit more positive though and gave players like Nisbet and Shankland a chance rather than bringing on Ryan Jack for the last 3/4 minutes. I don`t want to be critical of Steve Clarke however with everything he has done. We need to eliminate ant errors for the Spain game though. They`ve scored 13 goals in their last two games. It seems like we`ve angered them!

England are footballing powerhouse at all levels of the game these days. Better teams than us won`t be able to resist them so we shouldn`t beat ourselves up. France, Portugal and maybe Spain will be the only nations that can stop them claiming the Euros next summer. Our aim has to be consistently beating , home and away , tier three nations and to be genuinely competitive against the tier two nations. The Georgia game in November is all that matters now. We can`t count on Spain beating Norway in Oslo. With the likes of Haaland and Odegard the Norwegians could spring a shock.

England could win Euro 24 and the next WC if they had a manager like Pep or Klopp instead of the ultracautious Southgate. Maybe he`s finally seen the light, though, and given all that attacking talent free reign.....

We looked like we were running on empty, maybe the heat of Cyprus plus the travelling had an effect on us.

It was a chance to play squad players and I hope it hasn`t dented our progression.

Maybe if Nisbet had played and scored a hat trick, Pars might have got a multi million payout!👍🤣🤣🤣

GG, I think he is cautious because the one area of the England team that isn`t truly world class is their centre half options. Going forward though, when unleashed, they will steamroller most. When the best player at Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are English then you know our southern neighbours are on the brink of something special.

England do have a world class centre half in John Stones, but he’s been out since the summer. He’s pretty much Pep’s favourite just now and him being able to play in the hybrid role is a large part of how City were unstoppable after Christmas last season. Southgate just needs to work out how to support him.

That may be true in part, TOWK, but as a defender himself, Southgate`s almost invariably going to have a safety first philosophy.
