Wim the Tim

Last year, when Scotland were preparing to take part in Euro 2020 (yeah, last year was 2021, I will never be okay with that in my head) the podcast team put together a video to wish the team good luck. I’ll be honest, I was just going to do a quick good luck Scotland thing, [Read more]

Qatar World Cup

As we quickly tick into 2022, the Scotland play-off game with the Ukraine gets closer and so does the overall target of getting to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. However, whilst this is a great achievement, now seems like the right time to address the elephant in the room. Scotland is an amazing [Read more]

A Tribute to Walter Smith

Scottish football once again finds itself in mourning. The very sad news of Walter Smith’s passing broke this morning to a great deal of shock. Those closest to him knew this was coming, but it doesn’t make it any easier and even at an age of 73 it seems all too young these days. Obviously, [Read more]

It Israeli an Occasion to Saviour

FOOTBALL, BLOODY HELL! The famous words of Sir Alex Ferguson spring to mind after being through yet another rollercoaster ride with the Scotland Men’s National Team. In the seventh meeting inside three years against Israel, all was not rosy going into the half time break. Two-one down and Lyndon Dykes having his penalty on the [Read more]

An All Too Familiar Story

Oh right, this is what it feels like. After 23 years, I’d almost forgotten. For those of you who only really follow the men’s game and don’t remember France 98, welcome to the club. This is how it used to feel being a Scotland fan. We’d qualify for a tournament, we’d go there with high [Read more]

Win or Bust

We’ve got our buzz back. Scotland went to Wembley on Friday evening and were the better team on the night. When you’re coming away from a game where you need to get a point, you get that point, and you’re actually disappointed you weren’t able to get all three then you know something has gone [Read more]

Grant Hanley – Scotland’s Defensive Rock

Scott from @thefootyblognet offers up his thoughts on Grant Hanley… While we all cheered the Stephen O’Donnell redemption story, going from zero to hero after his superb display against England, Grant Hanley’s own triumphant Scotland story arc shouldn’t be forgotten. The centre-back’s international career now spans a decade, having made his senior debut against Wales [Read more]

An Auld Story Before the Auld Enemy

It’s all gone a bit flat, hasn’t it? We waited 23 years to see Scotland in a major tournament again, and in the end it was like we had never been away. I don’t think I felt any different at the end of Monday’s game against the Czechs as I did at the end of [Read more]

This Is The Day

This is the day. Nine days short of twenty three years since Scotland last played at a major championship, Andy Robertson will lead eleven Scotsman out at Hampden Park to take on the Czech Republic at the European Championships. 2pm cannot come quick enough. I feel like I’ve been waiting for it since David Marshall [Read more]

Don’t Stay Home Too Much

In 23 years, I don’t think I haven’t had a lump in my throat when I hear Del Amitri’s “Don’t Come Home Too Soon”. Actually I think it has probably got worse over the years when we haven’t even left home! Yes, I am an apologist when it comes to this song. I completely agree [Read more]
