A lot of chat going on on various Scotland forums wanting the SFA to approach Ipswich for Paul Lambert.

I think if Paul has half an ounce of a brain, ——> if approached, he will point blank decline the poisoned chalice of a job. No doubt whatsoever that League One with Ipswich Town will be a challenge........ but what Scotland require is so much more than a challenge. What the Glasgow clubs have done to the national team is not repairable.

Stay in So’F**K, Paul.

Quite a few against the idea though. One quote;
“Why? He’s been sh*te since his Norwich days.”

Lucy thought Gibraltar would get a 4 - 0 win over the Irish in that prediction league thing (?!), in the end they left with a one goal victory. A win's a win. Apologize to mention it's sorry as* but Mick McCarthy (quote) "hated every minute of it", (he continues) "it were a horrible game"

People berate international breaks but we got nothing remaining in the season, didn't miss a game this time, you know, what with there no domestic league action. Right in thinking when we fall into the third league in August, we'll be playing regardless as internationals only effect the top two divisions (?)

A wins a win, but the Irish wanted more goals and excitement after Martin O’Neill. Not sure they’ll get that with Mick.

It’s a temporary appointment, but attacking, attractive football isn’t Mick’s bag. He can try to get the Irish fans on his side by being honestly blunt and saying it was horrible, but he’s there to try and influence things... not to state obvious truths. Can’t see Irish fans swallowing that for very long.

Aw man, that’s the understatement of the year.

Although the wife’s best pal is a member of the Tartan Army and even though McLeish was booed at the end, they’re all out having a massive party getting pished in San Marino tonight. The videos im seeing are superb! 👌👍

Montenegro v England predictions

Ando 0-2
AylesburyBlue 0-2
Charnwood 0-2
Marko69 0-3
Blueblood 0-4
BluePeter 0-2
Nicscreamer 0-4
Bluemike 0-2
Bluewilf 0-3
MasseyFerguson 0-4
Tangfastic 0-3

If the game finishes 0-2 = three way tie.
If the game finishes 0-3 = Marko69 wins
If the game finishes 0-4 Blueblood wins

The three way tie will be decided by the three players pm-ing me the correct score between Arbroath and Forfar this weekend. Closest wins.

This will become a 4 way tie if no one guesses correct score. FTR: Forfar 1 Arbroath 1

Classic making it up as we go along Shyte! It’s why I’m no where near in charge of the real prediction league.

BBC News Sports headlines with Vasos Alexander:

“After the glittering ceremony last night when Blueblood received the mini prediction league trophy amidst cheering supporters, it has come to light this morning that there has been a discrepancy in the scoring system. Close inspection reveals that Charnwood is the actual winner of the mini event. Trophy handlers are currently trying to track down Blueblood to take the prize back, but sources reveal he’s down the local library with the door locked looking for obscure “who said that” questions for another event he’s in.
BBC Sport managed to track down event organiser Marko69 to find out what happened.
“Usually this doesn’t happen, but last night prior to the event, I met up with an old buddy who I haven’t seen for two years and we ended up getting a tad drunk and having a laugh. To be honest, I couldn’t be arsed!”
BBC Sport can officially reveal this morning that Marko has been relieved of all possible future prediction league jobs. He was pictured showing a sign of victory as he left the building, although I’m being told that it wasn’t a sign of victory.
The trophy will now be flown to a golf course of champion Charnwoods choice! 👏👍

Think I scored 7 also. 😂😂 anyway how come blue blood wins he was a point behind before the England game. Therefore those at the top get a point and blue blood gets two which means we are all level😂

“Interesting,” said Ando, the inland revenue officer.
