It's because they've lost the will to live because they're being made to wear bright pink.

Speaking as someone who played football, and even playing for an amatuer team that won the league title, my own personal feeling is that the outfit you wear definitely has a psychological affect on how you play.

Our school strip was all black. I hated it. The team which I played in that won the league, played in either Hearts colours or Hibs colours. You just felt great wearing these strips.

Grown men can't possibly feel good in pink, c'mon give the lads a break! Get back to our traditional national dark blue.

The All Blacks Haka wouldn't have had the same impact if they'd been the All Pinks.

By the way, Danny, not all grown women want to wear pink either - at least not to work. tongue.gif

An interesting game to watch in the second half but did not really think that we deserved that kind of win. Thought the first sending off was a bit harsh but we will take the points as anything else would have been a very poor start.

Scotland drew at home to Lithuania and then were beaten big time by Slovakia 3-0.

Next game.... England at Wembley. Last chance saloon even though it is early.

Disgraceful.

Fifa has turned down a request from England and Scotland for players to wear armbands featuring poppies on Armistice Day, the Scottish FA says.

England play Scotland in a World Cup qualifier at Wembley on 11 November, the day when the United Kingdom traditionally remembers its war dead.

SFA chief Stewart Regan says Fifa, which bans political, religious or commercial messages on shirts, is "sticking to the letter of the law".

The FAs hope to change Fifa's mind.

MP Damian Collins - chair of the Commons' Culture, Media and Sport select committee - has written to Fifa president Gianni Infantino asking for the world governing body to reconsider its decision.

Separately, the Football Association of Wales says it is seeking approval for its players to wear the poppy symbol on their shirts when they play Serbia at the Cardiff City Stadium on 12 November.

The football associations of England, Scotland and Wales also want to know what the potential punishments could be should they decide to flout the rules.

Fifa, football's world governing body, has not indicated whether a points penalty would be under consideration.

Regan said he and FA chief executive Martin Glenn would be meeting Fifa officials on Thursday to discuss the poppy issue.

"We will be asking for their support to try to give the people of England and Scotland what they want," Regan told BBC Radio 5 live.

"That is to use this match of a way of remembering people who lost their lives in the war.

"I can understand why they are doing this, but it is nothing more than a mark of respect. It is a personal choice. This is not about making some political point." [...]

I agree GG, and I find it hard to comprehend how they see the poppy as a political symbol. Hopefully a compromise solution will be found before the game.

Can I also say how much I detest the pink strip that Scotland intend to play in. Some may say that it matter little what the team wears but I don't subscribe to that. Get this horror strip binned ASAP.
