There is more pressure on the OF managers because of the supporters' expectations.

 

The national team has become a joke over the past three or four decades and expectations are lower than even those of the fans of lesser teams.

 

Strachan was more or less forced out after failing to qualify for the World Cup but the team had some great results in the last 2 years including a home draw with England and wins against Slovenia and Slovakia (i think)

 

Scotland finished above their seeded placing in the group and were only a goal away from getting a play off place.

 

I don't know what the support are expecting as the players available are a very poor standard. We have a player from the 3rd tier of English football starting FFS!!

 

Our club teams are hardly setting the World alight in European competition. 


wheresoeverwhensoever and howsoever we are called upon to make our exit. We shall do so as free men.

Club jobs are bigger than international jobs across the board depending on the league, barca/Madrid are bigger than spain, same as some clubs in Italy Germany France, england there is 4 or 5 bigger clubs than the national team
