    Scotland need a win, a draw suits us more if anything. Disappointed with the performance and some decisions made, but the draw helps us along. Need to turn up against the Czechs though

    Because the offensive wide areas aren't used at all, no need for a striker/poacher with aerial presence if you're never trying to cross the ball or play central through balls.

    Presume that there'll be a fair few changes for the Czech game with the lack of subs there and games every few days.

    I've truly never ever got the hype over him to be honest. Gets nowhere near the other top nations in this comps midfields.

    We looked as bothered tonight as Croatia did against us on Sunday.

    Definitely some tactics going on there. Don’t think anyone wants to top the group.

    Oh but Southgate wears a waistcoat and always has a tie on.

    Though the talk is that Scotland will be happy with a point, I think I’d be a little bit disappointed. This game was very winnable looking back at it.

    Four points, qualification, job done. Yes, it was a crap performance, but that happens. No idea what has happened to Kane.

    Either way you face one of France/Germany/Portugal, and if you managed to beat them then you'll be meeting one of the other two in the final...Why risk going out entirely for that?

    Steve Clarke isn't a very good manager (he was fairly poor at Reading) but is far better than Southgate. If Clarke was managing England, and Southgate was managing Scotland today, England would have won today comfortably.

    My only hope is that this is a clever ploy to play out a draw against Czech Republic and find ourselves on the 'easier' side of the draw

    Exactly, this was their chance to pinch a win.

    Wasn’t great at all .

    Lacked creativity.

    Probably lucky not to lose!

    But we didn’t…

    That was ****ing embarrassing from us. Absolutely no movement in front of the midfield. Puts Grealish on but takes our best player off. Kane was dogshit. Looks like he's running in cement. We look like we have for years. Slow and predictable.

    Not sure I would ever agree that a manager who starts Dykes in a euro finals is a good manager.

    Bellingham as a false 9? Kane can't be arsed and CL is out of form.

    If that’s true then it’s even more damning — scared to face a good side when we apparently have aspirations of winning the tournament? Pathetic.

    Foden can do that. Bellingham can play his usual position.
