    Totally agree with you on both counts. The whole video thing smacks of someone with an agenda.

    To be fair qualification for the next World Cup Finals was never on the cards given, A how bad we are and the fact that is not going to change over night given the talent is not there. And B the lack of qualifying spots. Only the group winners qualify directly and of the second place teams only 3 of the 10 group runners-up and 2 highest placed non qualified nations league teams qualify so qualification was never on the cards at all.

    Having said that while Portugal are far and away the group favourites Serbia while they have a vastly superior squad of players then we do have been consistent under performers so maybe we can steal 2 0-0 draws there:36: Having said that our utter lack of ability to score goals means we are just as likely to get embarrassed in one of the 4 games against Luxembourg and Azerbaijan as we are likely to cause a surprise and get a result against Serbia.

    That’s a cracking group I think.

    Shootout with Serbia.

    Maybe Oli McBurnie has some good Irish blood in his family and he can sort out the goal scoring problems. Only kidding, honest:50:

    Don't think shootout is the word I would use given our utter lack of quality in the striking department or creative midfield department.

    No I missed that. But I think you summed up Mr Rice very aptly and concisely.

    Why should Declan Rice, a Cockney, be expected to refrain from talking somewhat positively about Rangers?

    You might well ask why Declan Rice ,a cockney, is being posted about in this thread.

    In fairness, Mr Rice is rather dim - as we all know it's 1 - and not 55.
