By all accounts thy deserved to win, even though it wasn't the best of games. Dh was watching on his computer we don't have Sky wink

But WTF were they wearing the pink away strips??!! shock

Those just look dreadful to me. And I like pink as well as pink on men, it's such an odd pink colour confused

Still much to do - away to slovenia and if win a 2 leg play off - unlikely to get to Russia

I'm not keen on the pink strip either, but it's a reference to the strip they wore about 80 years ago, apparently.

I only saw the last 10 minutes so it looks like I got the best deal... (then various live videos from Hampden on Facebook). Delighted, but fearful that we'll fall at the final hurdle, once again. Still, we are ever hopeful!

I have nothing against pink except maybe that particular shade but I do have an objection to the blatant commercialism of Scotland wearing an away strip when they are at home _ confused _*and* they are playing a team that wears white (or at least, wore white during the game) ie no conflict with Scotland's home strip angry

prettybird - I had the same objection, but according to the lads in my office, UEFA rules meant the white on the sleeves of the Scotland strip clashed with Slovakia's all white home kit, and the visitor's away kit is blue, so it meant the pink strip had to be worn. Personally, I don't think there's enough white in our home kit to clash, but obviously the menz know better.

Suspect UEFA is complicit in that rampant commercialism wink

Tomorrowisanewday Sun 08-Oct-17 11:10:25

UEFA and commercialism in the same sentence - never!!!!!

Is anyone watching the game now? I don't have Sky but I believe we're 1-0 up...

prettybird Sun 08-Oct-17 17:39:30

We don't have Sky either...... wink

But it apparently has enlivened what was a boring game.

We are indeed 1-0 up, it's not a great game and we have a long way to go but this is promising.

Fucksake

Glorious defeat snatched from the jaws of victory yet a fucking gain

Seniorcitizen1 Sun 08-Oct-17 18:59:36

As posted earlier - wont be going to Russia - 20 years without a finals - poor players poor manager

Superjaggy Sun 08-Oct-17 19:11:33

Same old same old - left it too late as usual. It’s shite being a Scotland fan sad

Did anyone notice how much of Strachan's speech was in the past tense?
