Do you ever like me stop and wonder at the gullibility of the average supporter of the Scotland football team?. The player pool available for international matches has only two above average players Brown and Fletcher (not Darren). Neither of these two however would get in to the English pool of players and neither would any other Scottish players either. Despite this almost 60,000 of them attended the match between Scotland and England at Celtic park last night to witness what a predictable drubbing was dished out by the English. Yes I know a 3-1 defeat does not seem like a drubbing but that is what it was, this was an under strength England playing at half pace and they should have scored double the goals that they did. Scotland played it was a cup final and England played it like the friendly that it was and Scotland still couldn’t land a glove on them if you will pardon the mixed sporting metaphors.
Rooney and Wiltshire alone are worth as much as any 6 or 7 of Scotland’s best players, international football is now an embarrassing farce and it needs overhauled. We ought not to be seeing countries with populations of 3 or 4 million people playing against countries of 60 + million. International football should be hurriedly sorted in to leagues like domestic football and teams like Scotland, Ireland and Gibraltar for God’s sake would be in lower leagues from England, Brazil and Italy thus avoiding humiliation. Scotland can of course always produce players like Law, Bremner, Johnstone, Baxter, Souness and Murdoch but until we can come up with a way of producing them at the same time as each other we will continue to be regularly gubbed. Our sporting press however will continue come what may to wind up the idiots with fancy tartan dress outfits who cause us humiliation by telling them that, this time we are real contenders, garbage, utter garbage..
