If we can somehow control Halland then second is ours for the taking.

Haaland is good but he is not a one man team. 
Haaland with Man. City - :o
Haaland with Norway - :-\
Everyone was panicking about Norway in the playoffs for Euro2020 but they got dumped by the serbians.
World cup qualifying they lost 3-0 at home to the turks and could only manage a 0-0 at home to Latvia so as I see if they are on par with scotland in terms of erratic performances.

Georga and Cyprus are usually the type of games which will trip up Clarke & Co

Can't agree with you there Tom

Imagine only scoring 21 times in 23 appearances for your country 🤔

The key to containing Haaland is containing the rest of the team and in that regard I'm not particularly concerned about Norway. If Haaland scores once in each game - which, as you mention, is more or less his record - I'd back us to score at least twice anyway.

They really do faff about with these things. 100minute programme with 90minutes of bullshit.
I might have less issue with it if the hosts and audience was more akin to your average football crowd as opposed to a room full of suits.

Group A
Germany
Scotland
Hungary
Switzerland

Group B
Spain
Croatia
Italy
Albania

Group C
Slovenia
Denmark
Serbia
Englandshire

Group D
Poland/ Estonia/ Wales/ Finland
Netherlands
Austria
France

Group E
Belgium
Slovakia
Romania
Israel/ Iceland/ Bosnia/ Ukraine

Group F
Turkey
Georgia/ Luxembourg/ Greece/ Kazakstan
Portugal
Czech Republic

Happy enough with the draw. Could definitely have been a lot worse. Only complaint is the games being Munich, Cologne and Stuttgart is going to mean a bit of travelling for fans.
 

I am lucky enough to be guaranteed tickets via Scotland Supporters club so now just to decide how to work this.

I can help you with that Jute 

I'll buy them off you at face value mate 😉

I was more meaning how I break to my wife and Bairn that I am fucking off to Germany for 10 days. 
 

In all fairness wife has already said she will only go over for last two games. Just a question of if I go out for first game and stay out or if I head back after the game then go back with her.

Look at those ticket prices. Germany v Scotland prices on the right, the other two group games on the left.

The majority of the tickets available to Scotland fans are actually category 1 and 2 going by the stadium plans. €600 for a football match is crazy - opening game or not. I'd be expecting hospitality for that price. 

France 98 I managed to get tickets to Scotland v Morocco, and that was category 1, upper deck, front row, pretty much on the half-way. Brilliant tickets, and they felt expensive at £48. Even accounting for inflation that's less than £90 today.

The Euros and World Cup are just corporate money spinners these days. "Fans first" is a completely weird concept. You simply can't have "fans first" if that's how you treat people who are not deemed fans. That a stadium should have anything but a minority of seats available (maybe this is the case) to those who are not fans is fucked up. Good to see Germany's fan-owned, egalitarian model is thrown out the window at international level, ensuring that ordinary German fans can't afford to watch their side. That's what the game's about. I went to the World Cup in Germany in 2006, and I'm sure the prices were expensive but reasonable (maybe €40?).
