I am beginning to look forward to the 2016 campaign as there is a much better chance of qualifying with top 2 going through and 3rd place in play offs. Surely even we can qualify from that. France easy to get to as well. As for the next campaign I am very pessimistic espicially with Belgiums growing amount of talent and the Welsh getting stronger. I also believe we have absolutely nothing up front espicially with Leveins refusal to solve the Fletcher thing and we will be depending on somebody like M Smith to get us goals.Funny feeling we will have a new manager at the helm for 2016 campaign and what a great time to become Scotland manager as we will have a chance at qualifying.
How can we call our selfs patriotic when the majority of Scots want to be ruled by another country?

Nothing like a bit of positivity is there.

I haven't totally given up I just think our lack of quality strikers will be costly. Sorry being negative !!!! I'll be there cheering us on though as usual.

Not so much about Scotland in the WC campaign that concerns me.I do think we are on an upward trend. I am more concerned about the quality of our opponents. Croatia look like a team on the up and Serbia and Belgium are in my view better than us by a distance.We could get lucky.

The next campaign will be tough and we need a good start. To get a good start, we need our key players match fit, availableand in form. There are question marks over a number of our key players; D Fletcher, S Fletcher, McFadden, Naismith, Gordon, Hutton... We need some good news in the next few months.

I'm starting to look at hotels and what have you for Belgium now - getting more up for it. I think it is going to be a group where everybody cuts everyone else's throats, unlike our recent groups where one team has pretty much run away with it.

I would expect a lot of draws and think that with a bit of luck (winning in Wales), we could be sitting pretty going into 2013.

Then again...

Anybody know how many points you'll need for a ticket for the Bulgaria game?

The bookies don't often get it wrong.

Bwin have us at 25/1 to win Group A.

We will be lucky to finish outwith the bottom two unfortunately.

got to fancy our chances of qualifying for france but think we stand as good a chance as thr other 5 teams because all of them will be able to beat each other. theres no stand out team in our group as per usual will depend on what kind of start we make

There is no way levein will try and win any away games in WC qualifiers,
he will play for a draw, one up front.
Yes 2016 ,with new manager, more realistic.

Do you think he will gamble with a striker in the away games?
