it sticks in your throats. sure down the years you've had your moments to shine on the world stage too like 67 et al. but I think it grates on you more that we don't consider Scotland a rival the same way we do France or Germany.


You're right, we are Manchester United and you're right, Scotland is Manchester City. but only you're the Manchester City of 1997 when you were relegated to League 1 and were happy to be beating the likes of Mansfield Town.
you sound more bitter than the people you mentioned

Who do you want to win and why?

Which under-dog (nation) will completely surprise us all?

Which so-called footballing nation will make complete arses of themselves and full flat on their faces?

Which manager will be used as a scape goat for poor team performance and be sacked immediately following the championship?
ARGENTINA

ENGLAND OR NZ

SERBIA

PROBABLY ENGLAND

AUSTRALIA

I love that - I watched the whole series on it, by the time they were finished, they said Glasgow was the friendliest city in the world - and they have done that all over the world.

What does that tell you?

There seems to be such repressed anger, only just surfacing on this thread.


Nevertheless, let me submit exhibit B.
