Frogs vs Jocks

Recommended Posts

I have to admit, like all Scottish supporters, I was delighted, and somewhat shocked that Scotland managed to beat the French last time out. Okay it was at Hampden, and I think France may have been without a couple of star players. However, it was a great win for our lads, and it actually has given us a glimmer of hope for reaching the championship proper.

However, with Italy in the same group, I just don't see us getting past both France and Italy. So, once again, it will be heart break for the tartan army.

Tomorrow sees us off to the Stade de France to take them on, and Dommenech is ladeling us as "dangerous." I think, though, the French will totally outclass us and put us to bed with a resounding thrashing...well I think a 2-0.

However, Scotland are riding high on a crest of confidence, so they may go and really try to "strong arm" the French out of the game. Strong tackles, 90 minutes of pure adrenaline fueled aggression...now if only all McCoist was about 20 years younger!

Any predictions, and also (now this is a long shot) but if you could choose one CURRENT Scottish palyer to be on the Chelsea side...who'd it be?

Forgot to say, my choices would be either Darren Fletcher, Kris Boyd or Miller. I think they area all decent attacking players, and if Fletcher wasn't so lightweight, then I feel he could be pretty usefull. He has a good engine, and his passing is more than decent. Boyd and Miller, just to feed off the scraps of Drogba. remember, these are just CURRENT Scotland players I wouldn't mind seeing in Chelsea colours. Not who I think should be, nor who I want, in the team!

I honesty believe Scotland could hang on and steal a point. They will almost definitely put 5 across the middle with a lone striker. If that is so I would be very surprised if that lone striker is Boyd as he is far far far too lazy to play the lone striker role.

If I had to pick a playerf from the squad then I would probably have to opt for Scott Brown. Mainly becasue I don't think any of the current squad are good enough for us however he has age on his side and at least looks like he has the potential to be a pretty good player.

Seriously though I watch a few Scotland games (my best mate is a Celtic supporter so i'm dragged down the pub to watch them and the national team).

Craig Gordon is the only one I think would not look out of place in a team that is one of the best in Europe.

Also how bad was that penalty decision against Lithuania. I thought my mate was going to have a heart attack he has raging so much! Brilliant!

Amazing result. Could we be seing the scots in EURO 2008? icon_eek.gif

Three games remaining and if I'm not mistaking they will face Italy, Georgia and Ukraine. They should win against Georgia but the other two are more difficult. But if they can win against France then why not against Ukraine or Italy?

Speaking of Ukraine. They lost 2-1 against Italy but guess who scored their goal...Sheva! icon_eek.gif

Hope that about sums it up, what a belter of a GOAL, and yes I am now rising SOOOOOO high on the passion of possibly seeing scotland make the Euros, that I can't wait for the ultimate fall when we lose our remaining 3 games.

COME ON MCLEISH!!!!

and yes, totally forgot about the keeper, should have had him in the team (Chelsea)

Who was in goal for France? That wasn't good goalkeeping icon_confused.gif

wow, you sound like that idio for Sky who said that Drogba's goal against Everton was due to bad defending.

Both were great strikes, that caught the keeper off guard. I don't think you should deny the fact taht they were both great strikes.

I truly hope you were being sarcastic, and I don't mean to call you an idiot...merely the bloke on Sky

It was a good strike but it doesn't mean that the keeper did nothing wrong. I think that as a keeper you should be prepared for a shot all the time or atleast as soon as the opponents are on your half of the pitch.

No point sleeping in goal if the opponents are within shooting range. icon_wink.gif

Speeking of sleeping. I'm off to do that right now. icon_wink.gif

Sorry mate but it was a great strike AND poor goalkeeping. Landreau (who has always been dodgy) went with it with the wrong hand hence he didn't get as much on it as he should have done and also had a very 'limp wrist'

If he had gone with it with the correct hand and his wrist was firm (easy Moos) then he would have/should have put it over the bar.
