    100% not bitter mate, I actually don't mind the English game and I go down to see Spurs a couple of times a season it's just the stuff outside of the football I and everybody else hates.

    Ian Wright Wright Wright & Shearer are w4nkers but listening to the game today I didn't actually mind Martin Keown.

    Cmon Vertongen, Alderwiereld & Dembele though 😍

    Ive been to Belgielandgium actually, and they are a great set of people really. They cant stand Germany or France or Holland, but yes of course if it came down to it they cant stand Engerland either.
    It would be a shock if we met them in the Final.. because they would have had to beat the better side of the draw wouldnt they (Brazil & France). And we would have to beat Croatia as well wouldnt we!.

    Guys, it's like you didn't see the apocalypse coming. I had my concerns about this from minute one. Not that they're brilliant, far from it, but there is something about this tournament that sits uneasy.

    lol Whitfield! just had a look at press and mainly engurlund fans comments. Sterling 4.75 out of 10 - wtf!!?? He caused every single problem in that game coming in deep. If England win it I hope he scores winner. seems hated by the "home" of football.

    The worst thing about this thread is its typically Scottish,worrying about our big neighbour's winning the World Cup.We had our opportunity to pour funds into our national sport in September 2014 but we chose to be guided by our superior's from the south who will never be stupid enough to supply us with fund's to usurp their own country.
    Uruguay are sandwiched in between 2 super powers of world football Brazil and Argentina but they have won the world cup without support from their neighbours.Denmark have a mighty nation to their south Germany but they still qualified and got past the group stage,Sweden made it to the quarter finals with no real stars and Croatia have reached the Semi Final's with a similar population to our's,the big difference between the countries above and us is they chose to govern their own affairs but we decided another country should look after us,FACT.

    Ok GB.





    But I'd still worry over them winning the World Cup regardless. Independence or not would never change that.

    Fair play to Russia their energy was unbelievable. Been disappointed in Croatia in a couple of games, just seem to not click at times. They'll be drained tonight and picked up injuries, Die Englanders will fancy themselves in this one.

    Haha yeah, see what you mean, it was meant to be a reply to GB tbh.

    The funding point he makes though is a good one and if we could keep politics out of it would make a good discussion on here.

    Its also worth remembering that Iceland poured millions of Krona into football because they were fed up of being a laughing stock,they qualified for the Euro's(We didnie) then knocked oot the country(England) who give us our pocket money.To show that was not a one off they then made it to the World Cup in Russia(We never) and drew 1-1 with Argentina,this is a country with a population similar or smaller than Edinburgh,the big difference?,independent nation no getting pocket money from its bigger Nordic cousin's,FACT.

    Agree with this 100%
    Such an inferiority complex that our country voted against governing itself. Pathetic
    About time there wasn't the contentment of England going out of a major tournament early to smokescreen that we haven't qualified for over 20 years and haven't moved forward one bit at our national sport in that time.
    England have played well at a tournament with no outstanding nation in it (we didn't even get into a playoff). If they win the WC fair play to them.

    OK it's late on a Saturday night but maybe next week instead of political point scoring someone can post up hard facts as to exactly what the funding issues are. 1 How much is available to the SFA now? 2 How much MORE would be available to the SFA if the country had independent financing sources?

    It would be nice to have this debate without it resorting to politics because that will only get the thread locked at some point?

    Not entirely true James,if we were an independent nation they may have not qualified having only drawn with us at home and been hammered in Glasgow,do you no remember Croatia(INDEPENDENT)and the Wally we the brolly?. Thig Ar Latha!!!.
