Ramos getting the deliberate yellow in the last game kind of back fired on them!

Such an incredibly poor result for Scotland.

An utterly unthinkable result when I was a wee lad, but sadly all too expectable nowadays.

Scotland were 9/1 fourth favourites to win the world cup in 1978. Whilst it's true the odds were not actually in line with reality, they give an indication of Scotland's standing in world football 40 years ago. One man who foresaw the impending demise of the game in Scotland was the late Ernie Walker, former secretary of the SFA. I remember him saying that the influx of money into the game would ultimately kill off Scotland as any kind of real force in football.

From his obituary: "Walker tried and failed to introduce summer matches or a winter break, but was more successful in delaying the introduction of wall-to-wall live television coverage of football which he correctly saw would alter the sport entirely."

He was right, and there's no way back now.

Mind you Kazakhstan (ranked 117) scored some good goals. Reckon they could get 2nd behind Belgium in their group. Russia had a good world cup on their own soil, can't see them following through this time. Cyprus are a little inconsistent.

That was the first World Cup I watched properly. Never will forget that Gemmill goal.

The locals had been hostile to Scotland because of the 'drugs' scandal, but that goal won them over.
