An All Too Familiar Story
By K Kujawa |

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
By K Kujawa |

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]

An Auld Story Before the Auld Enemy
By K Kujawa |

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
By K Kujawa |

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.

Don’t Stay Home Too Much
By K Kujawa |

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]

Back on the Big Stage
By K Kujawa |

“If someone offered me another 0-0 and penalty shootout victory then I would grab it with both hands right now.” Trust Scotland to make it even more dramatic than that. Despite Serbia being favourites for this game, it was Scotland who looked the more likely to win in regular time. Ryan Christie’s goal looked to [Read more]

Daring to Dream
By K Kujawa |

Thursday night sees the biggest Scotland match since… well, last month’s match against Israel to be honest. October’s penalty shootout victory, where we showed other nations just how simple it is to win them by just scoring all of yours and saving one of theirs, set Scotland’s mens national team up with a playoff match [Read more]

For You Shelley The VAR Is Over
By K Kujawa |

I’ll be honest, until recently I’d never really watched women’s football with any degree of real interest or enthusiasm. For several years I’d made up my mind that the quality was okay but nothing I would rush to watch, particularly due to the fact that goalkeepers were dreadful. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned [Read more]

Cyprus done, the small matter of Belgium next
By J Bleasdale |

WHEN Scotland games come around, they should come with a health warning! No matter how many times they put us through the mill, they find a new way to toy with our emotions, and Saturday’s crucial Euro 2020 qualifier against Cyprus. As it looked as though they were going to have a draw snatched from [Read more]

Scotland facing uphill battle – but could still qualify for Euro 2020
By C Adey |

It’s going to be a challenge qualifying for Euro 2020. But it is far from impossible. Despite a disappointing set of results recently, which resulted in the sacking of manager Alex McLeish, the Scottish players must believe it can only get better from here. Before the surprise loss to Kazakhstan in Astana, data analysts Gracenote [Read more]
