Give us some­thing to cheer, Scot­land

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - OPINION -

Well, the one thing you can’t say about Scot­tish foot­ball is that it’s bor­ing.

It’s only Oc­to­ber and al­ready we’ve had fury over the league cup semi-fi­nal sched­ule, Gazza’s hokey-cokey se­lec­tion for the Hall of Fame, and now Alex Mcleish un­der pres­sure af­ter a hand­ful of games as Scot­land boss.

If there is disas­ter or con­tro­versy to be found, you can usu­ally ex­pect those in charge of the game north of the bor­der to grab it with both hands.

But, in all se­ri­ous­ness, it’s tragic that we are speak­ing in such a way. Do­mes­ti­cally, we have a good prod­uct with a num­ber of teams vy­ing for the top spot.

How­ever, in­ter­na­tion­ally, we ap­pear to be go­ing nowhere fast. This shouldn’t be the case – so can some­one, some­where, please give us all some­thing to cheer about?
