    Looks like it, Christie, Forrest and McGregor looking great.
    Lovely assist from Christie for the 2nd goal.

    Certainly is, he wasnít unemployed for the last 3 or 4 years for no reason.

    Look at Forrest, best player in Scotland for the last year but McLeish just refused to pick him again and again. He eventually does after all the call offs and look what happens

    To be fair, prior to this week Forrest had collected 24 caps and contributed the square root of fuck all in the process. Amazing as he has been in the last two games, painting him as hard done by is a wee bit disingenuous.

    I was delighted when we went 3-1 up as I thought that, just for once, we might not make life hard for ourselves. Then we decided it was a good idea to stand off the Israelis and let them shoot, because that worked so well earlier. Why do we have to do it the hard way EVERY time?

    It was all about the result tonight though and I donít care how it was achieved. We got there, weíve been promoted to a less embarrassing level, and now we have two shots at qualifying for Euro 2020. Canít say fairer than that.

    Forrest was until 18 months ago, inconsistent for club and country but since then he's been outstanding. He scored 4 goals in one game for Celtic and was on the bench 4 days later for Scotland under donkey McLeish.

    Anyway, I thought we played well and some decent football, Fletcher was excellent as well. shame we did the usual when 3-1 up but that's to be expected with such a dinosaur of a coach as McLeish.

    Much as I think McLeish is a hopeless numpty, I donít think itís his fault our players decided not to close Israel down and let them shoot from outside the box when they had already lost one goal that way.

    Oddly, I think our biggest stroke of luck was the injury to Kieran Tierney. He is a good player, but Andy Robertson is unquestionably better, and they play in the same position. The crap result in Israel was partly down to McLeishís obsession with getting both of them on the pitch at once, which results in a completely unbalanced team.

    I suppose Brexit might give continental Europe some reprieve.

    It's worked tbf. I was pretty sceptical but it has given the games some edge.

    It's also gated off England games behind a paywall just as they became worth watching again, so fuck everyone involved for that one.

    Yeah that is shit. Just feels fundamentally wrong not to have international games on terrestrial.

    It's some of the only football a lot of people get to watch and, honestly, it's the national team. Everyone should get to watch, not just people who can afford sky.

    It's not going to be as self destructive as cricket or rugby but you are severely restricting the amount of people who will go on to give a shit about watching England.
