    Almost as bad as Everton's alternate jerseys from a few years past. Wow, that was bad.

    On facebook the Scottish National Team asks who wants to join a Twitter competition to win the new Away kit signed by Scott Brown.
    Nice comments can be found, I especially like this answer by a Scotland fan: "I wouldn't want one even if you got William Wallace to sign it." :laugh::ninja:

    Honestly I expect us to beat Scotland, but as mentioned before I could live with a draw if it helps to see both teams playing in France 2016 ! :) And thanks to Gordon Strachan Scotland has improved, it wont be easy for us.
    A Scottish beer is already in the fridge, looking forward to the game.
    I will raise a German and a Scottish flag tomorrow.:tup:

    2-1 Germany but Scotland surprisingly good, especially in the second half. Gordon Strachan is doing a terrific job since he took over.

    And Scotland could have easily scored a second goal ! :eek:
    Overall an impressive performance by the Scottish team, if they continue to play like this they will have a chance to qualify for France 2016 ! No doubt about it ! :tup:

    Scotland actually looked pretty good. Just a poor clearance attempt that gave Germany their 2nd goal. Otherwise a good effort.

    Yeah the games against Germany for Scotland are dead rubbers the qualifying really begins when we play the other teams. The quality of the performance against a team like Germany was and is a good thing. :)
