All joshing apart, that game last night showed what can be done when you have an intelligent manager, the right tactics and a motivated squad. Imagine what we could achieve if we had a decent manager.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord deliver us...and while you're at it, a bit of a helping hand with hobbits wouldn't go amiss...

You're right, great tactics can get a lot out of an average squad.

But Scottish fans need to wind their necks in a bit. What they achieved last night was 1 point, bottom of the group, and facing going out. They haven't scored a goal yet. That's where they're shite.

Reminded me a bit of the Europa final.

Good morning all!
What a great game...
Really? I was hoping Scotland win but the game wasn't particularly interesting. Not much chances created, nothing much throughout the game.

France looking vulnerable in defence. This result so far making England's look a bit better.

Hungary 1-1 France

France didn't create enough. Shows you the problem of breaking down low blocks in a knock out tournament. Managers don't want to go for it in case they lose and struggle to qualify / get knocked out. Both teams end up settling for a point.

Looks like we can all end up with an unimpressive draw then

You're obviously not as in tune with the plucky underdog mentality as swamps is

Germany totally dominant against Portugal, but Ron goes up the other end and taps one in

Germany are fucked, Lowe is toast
