    Poor old Scotland

    You get thousands of Scottish supporters spending probably a year's wages coming south to drink over-priced, watered-down beer to watch (on TV screens, not the large screens they left behind in Edinburgh and Glasgiw), the borefest of England v Scotland, and "celebrate" not scoring, and now after a quarter of a century of failure to qualify for senior national competitions, they emulate their rugby colleagues, who since the 6 nations competition was founded in 2000, are the only country apart from Italy not to have won the competition.

    You have to admire a country that gets so worked up about supporting failure.

    They've been through it all together...... and they've had their up's and down's... I reckon we were accused of similar as club fans, particularly in seasons starting 2007 and 2008

    Seems harsh.

    If you want Wortley to ban you, you’re going the right way about it…

    Its weird because a couple of days ago they were celebrating like they'd won the entire thing.

    Exactly, hence my comment about celebration of not scoring

    No, they were celebrating that they had matched their much bigger and richer local rivals.... think New Zealand v Australia... Guiseley v Bradford City.... not everyone is from or supports the biggest
