Levein is at the game in London, wonder what he thinks of Belgium, maybe a return of the 4 6.

Let 2014 be the start of a better Scotland.

Belgium have been by far the better side. Have got all the possession.


Done nothing with it though. Always difficult to judge on one performance, and a friendly at that, but based on today if you keep it tight at the back it looks like they'll find it difficult to break down. They look prone to the odd lapse at the back. All England's chances have come after Belgian mistakes.

That sounds like the 4-5-1 charter.

England have a very solid back 4 though. They'll find it much easier to break through Caldwell, Berra, Hutton etc than Terry, Lescott, Cole etc.

What I do think is that watching this game, Levein will already be devising some kind of crazily defensive 4-5-1 (even at Hampden).

He was probably also asking the bus driver if his granny was born in Inverness even though he was 60, disabled and asian.....

Er... why shouldn't Levein pick Asians?

He was 100% English - never met such a miserable git, so no problems on that front.

Because their grand parents probably weren't born in Englandshire

Seen Croatia - Norway on Saturday and Croatia looked lacking of ideas. They seemed to struggle creating opportunities upfront and didn't offer much at all. Defence looked all over the shop as well. Vida had a nightmare, missing kicks, punting 10 yard passes out for throw ins and slack marking for the Norway equaliser.

I expect Croatia to start dropping down the rankings over the next few years. I think they'll finish 3rd in our group.
