What are your thoughts for tonight? This game has a real 'derby' feeling about it. I get the same feeling that I get before a Pompey v Saints game where there is an excited nervousness about it. The outcome is probably more important than the points at stake, which sounds a bit weird. I have been looking at some Scottish forums and they are wetting themselves over this game, which most think they are going to win. The rhetoric is full of venom towards the English it makes uncomfortable reading sometimes. For them it's not only a game of 'fitba' it has Brexit, Independence, politics & national pride at stake. They really want to rub our noses in it. I personally hope that, not only do we win, we win with style and win it by a mile. We should win as I think we have better players. I don't think any Scottish players would get in the England team so you would think the result is a foregone conclusion. The thing is that it is a derby and very often form goes out of the window so I will be wearing incontinent garments for the rest of the day.
