    If they treated every match with the intensity they treated an England match, they could get somewhere. That's a gigantic "if" though.
    And come what may we're unstoppable

    Although what the **** we're doing going to Kazakhstan for a European Championship qualifier is beyond me. Who the **** let them into UEFA?

    There is something so comfortingly familiar about Scotland always seemingly striving to reach new depths of humiliation.

    This Kazakhstan defeat is even more amusing than that Faroe Islands business from all those years ago.

    TIL

    As it extends across both sides of the Ural River, considered the dividing line with the European continent, Kazakhstan is one of only two landlocked countries in the world that has territory in two continents (the other is Azerbaijan)
    10% territory in Europe.

    Is it though?

    Astana are one of those teams who are a solid Europa League group stage side. Kazakhstan don't feel like one of those sides we would have an automatic right to beat.

    Kazaks were in the Asia Cup once I think. Not good enough so tried their luck in the weaker Euro league.

    It's close but I think yes.

    Faroe Islands probably on the whole a more humiliating opponent to lose to, but of course Scotland didn't actually lose to them... Whereas they did to Kazakhstan.

    Having just clocked the latest rankings you might be on to something.

    However, in part 400 of our "FIFA rankings are ****ing meaningless" series, I have no idea how the **** we find ourselves up in 40th place, just 4 places behind Northern Ireland.

    He should have claimed James Maclean had hacked his twitter account.

    On a serious note, it's a gaffe I reckon the majority of plastic Irish of either persuation would have made when they were young and had no sense. Not that that excuses his actions.

    Yeah it's pretty common. Posting it just makes him a garden-variety prick, but posting it and then later claiming to be English makes him a phenomenal prick. I don't want to sound more bothered by it than I really am, it's ****ing hilarious first and foremost, but it is also deeply disrespectful to both countries.
