Talking a good game

A bit cruel of the BBC to headline their press conference video excerpt from Scotland assistant manager Terry Butcher (pictured) "Scots are in 'good position' - Butcher". In fairness he did add "if we take six points" - that is win the final two games of their World Cup qualifiers, not just against FYR Macedonia (which isn't a foregone conclusion) but also against Holland - which will be little short of a miracle. Still, as George Burley has said, it's like a Cup semi-final and final. You just have to go for it. A nation will be on tenterhooks on Saturday, but the real tension (if all goes well then) will be for Wednesday night.
