Opening campaign to qualify for the Europe nations Cup 2008, Scotland are up 5-0 at halftime against a very poor Faroe Island team, guess who scored at Celtic Park for Scotland yes, Kenny Miller he got a penalty kick and the goalie near saved it, anyhoo it counts, well done Kenny and Scotland!
The game ended 6-0 for Scotland, Lithuania Wednesday over there.

Thats four years away, or at least the pre World Cup games are off in the future.
This competition is the European Nations cup, I made a mistake in the title, it should be 2008 not 2007, and Scotland are in a group as you see, however they play each team in that group home and away, so it takes awhile, and I believe its the top two teams in the group that advance to the next round.
Scotland have played two of the weaker teams, so anyhoo they are doing no bad, under Walter Smith.
And should improve.
Celtic play Man Utd the morra at Old Trafford, in the first game of the Euro Champions League Cup, they are carrying the banner for Scotland there, sure hope they put up a good showing, and continue to put us back on the map fitba wise, as the national team are doing?
Remember Catherine the daft question is the one thats not asked, although you certainly come close, wae yours! LMAO
Catherine
Thanks Hubert.
Cripes trust me tae get it mixed up! laugh.gif

carmella
Well the Bhoys got beat 3-2 last night in their game against Man U.

I see this morning too that our Goalie Boruc has accused Ryan Giggs of diving.

He didn't think it was a penalty, therefore he got angry, according to the coverage.

I missed that part so I don't know.


Onwards and Upwards.

Hubert
ah took a leaf out of Catherine's book ah pressed the wrang button hahaha.

Sparta playing Hearts tonight so see what happens here, in fact in just a few minutes' time, the game is on tv.
hubert
Scotland play France Saturday in Scotland, not sure where the game is at, canny mind, anyhoo Barry Ferguson may get a game as he thinks he has done well in his two games back from injury playing for Rangers.
I am not a fan of Ferguson, and think he is overated and especially with Scotland, however having said that I think he is better than Quashie, whom I think will be picked.
For seasons now I have not liked Christian Dailly, and I believe he scored in his last game for Scotland, he will also probably get the nod on the first team, yet he can hardly get a game for his club, West Ham? rolleyes.gif
carmella
Well here's hoping it's a great game.

Let's hope Scotland win. biggrin.gif
hubert
Canny wait, I get to see it live on my TV Setanta is bringing it, and I subscribe to them.
Well Quashie is not playing and Ferguson is, although I am not a fan of Fergusons, he is better than Quashie.
Too bad Miller isnt playing, he sure is a worker, he might not be scoring many these days, but he reminds me of the auld saying, The world loves a trier, and that he is.
If we can get a draw even, I will be delighted, heres hoping awe the best SCOTLAND!
jimmyd
Hi Hubert ,hope they can get a win I might be able to see it on my mates Satellite service , will need to check it oot
Hail Caledonia !!!!
Melody

hubert

Melody

Isobel
Fantastic, can't wait for next game. Well done Scotland.
hubert
Wednesday is the next game in the Ukraine, they say Shevchenko that plays for Chelsea may not be fit, well I wish him no ill, but I hope he aint playing against Scotland?
Melody
It says on the radio that some of oor Tartan Army have been attacked by people in the Ukraine. Most unusual no doubt we'll get in on the news. sad.gif
jimmyd
Whit a bummer , Scotland lost to Ukraine ,was always going to be a hard game for them. Have not found any info re your post Melody ,no doubt it will all come out in the wash . biggrin.gif
Lennox
Sorry the lads lost, sad.gif
Catherine
Did anyone watch that own goal of Englands?

Oh dear oh dear, it sounds awful but kinda makes ye feel better annaw laugh.gif

That poor goalie must feel terrible, I was cringing for him.

What was the Scotland score guys? TSN here only gave the England score.
Isobel
2-0 Catherine mad.gif
hubert
I saw the replay at 5pm my time Wednesday, I new the score before hand, however I thought Scotland had more or less been well outplayed from what I had heard? I found this not to be the case, although there is no question the better team won, Scotland did fairly well, we had mistakes that cost us, but the team kept plugging away. Thought Pressley being sent off could have been a yellow card and not a red, however Pressley has to realize we are playing fitba no rugby. Also thought not to single him out, but Hartley was somewhat just running around and bumping into the opposing players and giving away daft fouls. Scotland will be hard to beat at home, and we have a first class goalie and he is only 22 as well!

Catherine I saw that England own goal, it should be a lesson for all goalies, that on the 6 yard line when goalies kick the ground to make a wee teeup mound to kick the ball from in goalkicks, they make sure they tamp it down after the ball is kicked, I think this is what cause the ball to go up over Robinson the English keepers foot.
Whits that? No I am sitting here trying tae haud it in! laugh.gif LMAO.
jimmyd
Got this in from Catherine ,couldnae a happened tae a nicer team !!!!! biggrin.gif

One of Scotlands players they are trying to get fit is a guy I do NOT rate Quashie, goodness gracious he and Dailly are two players that struggle with their own clubs in England, oh well? unsure.gif
