New Manager Strachan can't make it happen.

I dragged myself down the pub last night to see Scotland's latest World Cup qualifier game against Wales.

It was the new manager Gordon Strachan's first competitive game in charge.

It started quite lively and we actually went one up against Wales when Grant Hanley scored just before half time. This made the half time chat quite pleasant. Especially when the free jock pies were passed around.

Sadly Scotland couldn't maintain the lead. Snodgrass was flying into the Welsh players once too often and was sent off with a penalty going to Wales. We thought that the penalty had been flunked as it seemed to bounce up and hit the bar and come out. But the replay showed it going in.

Needless to say the Welsh scored again a couple of minutes later with a Kanu header. And it was all over.

It's claimed that this is the worst team that Scotland have ever had. Probably right. Beaten twice by Wales ( home and away) is a humiliation.

Serbia on Tuesday I think. Piece of cake.
