I’m guessing you are younger than 50 then. The whole nation used to watch Scotland games back in the 1970s and early 80s.Crocked in the first 5 mins then.
Never understood the point of international football.
Can you explain why Champion's leagues football takes the blame?I’m guessing you are younger than 50 then. The whole nation used to watch Scotland games back in the 1970s and early 80s.
International football has been largely ruined by the Champions League. Scotland being crap doesn’t help but I also partly blame the Champions League for that as well.
Wembley was always down south.Mind you never been.Still miss the Home internationals to be fair, dropping that tournament seemed to be the start of our International teams decline.
Scotland vs England on a Saturday afternoon, on BBC TV - The Streets empty, tumbleweed rolling around, Everybody! watching the match.
Guys saved up all year to head to Wembley if it was down south.
My God, you just about gave a few Hibbies a heart attack there!! Rod Petrie trying to learn from his mistakes and showing great maturity? Wow! You just about flooded your and @Sir Shrink's inboxes! (Or Bounce equivalent.)While of course pleasing I find this call up at first glance just a little surprising as Ryan Porteous is far from the finished article and has only very limited first team experience.
I guess this is what happens when you have many years conditioning of Scotland managers afraid to take chances and gamble on young players rather than the old guard.
Its a brave call by Stevie Clarke and also a free hit as we really can't get much worse as a team and especially in the centre of defense.
One of the things I like about RP is the way he tries to learn from mistakes and move on quickly as he shows great maturity and it can only be of benefit to Hibs and his career to get international recognition so young.
