I saw on the news this morning that up to 30000 Scotland fans will be descending on London today yet only 5000 will have tickets, there is no fan zone so just wondering were all of these fans will manage to watch the game whilst social distancing. If it had been the other way round wee Jimmy would be kicking up a hell of a stink and claiming it was further evidence that a second referendum was needed. She would also be highlighting the risks of infection and blaming Boris for being incompetent.....yet not a word from north of the border.....however if there is a massive outbreak in Scotland in 2 weeks time she will no doubt be very quick to blame the English for deliberately infecting the tartan army

Also any troubles were it England fans would be over sensationalized by the media, whereas these fans will no doubt be good as gold, much like the Danes who saw fit to pelt Courtois goal with beer glasses yesterday.

I feel that there's a potential 'kicking off' imminent at these euros, but lets hope not

At least in 1977, all they took back north was most of the pitch!

England at Wembley is as big as it gets for Scottish fans. They've always travelled down in their thousands. They create a wonderful atmosphere which is great to see. I hope they have a good time.
Certainly no need to politicise it, it's a game of footy between 2 British teams

Sturgeon will be happy that they’re someone else’s problem for a few days. Then she can have a go at the English if gets a bit antsy. She does nothing that doesn’t further her own ambitions.

When Scotland leaves the union they will no doubt be held up at the border crossing at Hadrian's Wall.

By the time they get to Hadrian's wall they will have already been in England for about 40-50 miles.... don't forget the wall ends at Wallsend on the east coast which is in Newcastle....there is still an awful lot of England north of Newcastle

Nearer the Antonine than Hadrians

Still they could just sail out to the North Sea in their dinghys and get a lift back in to the UK with the coast guard bypassing the border?
