I didnt qualify for the WC but to be honest to I didnt expect to, it would have been a miracle had I done that. I finished fourth but I have now discovered a formation and a solid squad of players to compete for EC2008.

Final group standings.

I have been drawn in a group of 8 teams including Croatia, Serbia & Mont. and Portugal to name the hardest teams I will play.



At least I am getting the away tie against Portugal out of the way relatively fast.

Its looking good for sure.

The success seems to be continuing as I recorded a home win against Portugal.

Well its getting very tight at the top and I've lost the leverage I had.

I lost to Lithuania and Serbia.

Three games left, 2 away (Faroes and Andorra) and Croatia at home in between them games.

If I take all 3 points from them games I still need Portugal, Croatia or Serbia to drop points along the way.

well gl, but in my 2 qual groups help came from unlikely sources as in the 1st group it was Moldova that my rivals dropped points off and that allowed me to qualify, and this time for the EC qualyfying poland dropped points against san marino, so help can come from teams you dont expect to draw or win.

Can you tell me what you do to make your screen prints smaller when pasting them onto the forum? I dont like pasting them using actual screen size, its too big.

No lol. I am not running on a full screen, all you do is paste after doing the above and you will see exactly what you see on your screen, same sizes as well.

A 93rd minute winner at home against Croatia puts me in second place going into the last game away to Andorra! Loving it :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

SCOTLAND QUALIFY FOR EURO 2008

Yippee!!!

It wasnt easy and it was the Croatia game in the 93rd min that really won it for me.

Here are some screen prints of the standings.









McFadden is always in squad but injured for my last selection.
