Scotland down to 56th and below the mighty Panama, Central African Republic and Cape Verde Islands.

 

 

Does anyone take this thing seriously?

Unfortunately FIFA do and use it to decide your grouping for World cup draw. UEFA were talking about using it as well a while back for Euros as well but not seen anything on it since.

I'm a liitle confused as to why wer're below Wales though, apart from yon friendly defeat under Berti have they really had "better" results?

 

All of our good results under McLeish will have dropped off now.

 

We have only won six competitive games since November 2007.

I'd forgotten the 0-3 :(

 

Forget the result, just remember it got rid of Burley :thumbsup:

 

I was just going to say. Scotland are pish and have been for years, I'd actually say the rankings are reasonably accurate when you take our competitive games into account.

 

Unfortuantly correct.

 

In the last ~4 years we've beaten:

 

Liechenstein (twice)

Lithuania

Iceland (twice)

Macedonia

 

It's a miracle we're even in the top 100 having such a piss fucking poor record.

I hear some saddo who was bored at work made up a list of our competitive games from Italy onwards.

 

Bolded the wins and everything!

My give a fuck o meter is barely registering this news, however guess its better than usual news these ranking contain for us.

 

As my dearly departed mother used to say however "one swallow doesn't make a summer" and you just know that come the next game Chesney will bring back the old guard once again.
