Billy Gilmour has got the Covid

Good job not one of the England players got anywhere near him on Friday night

*gag stolen from Twitter*

Don't know how true it is but apparently McGinn and Robertson are also out as close contacts which is going to properly hamper their chances!

Confirmed as Fake News.

I think the passion bit is a load of shite. England players have as much passion as the Scots etc. The expectation and pressures are greater and that's where we historically fall down. We are serial bottlers losing to the first decent team we play in knockout games.

TBH I know it was a joke but the Gilmour hype is silly, he was average at best.

Thought he was probably the best player on the park Friday but obviously as is often said we all see games differently

I don't think any player on the pitch shone for that game. Drab.

The England hype is silly as the media expect too much from the likes of Mount, Rice & Philips who are not yet world class

Totally agree on the first point, hope you're wrong on the second...

Honestly if England had played as Scotland did they would have still been absolutely battered by the fans/media.

The only difference is that the expectations of England are much higher.

Very much so, we went into this tournament EXPECTING to do well (in the press) Scotland went into it HOPING to do well but without any expectation of achieving it.

If England had won 4-0 the press would still have said "not good enough as we should have scored 6, the hype surrounding England is the same every competition, the England fans though rarely go into finals thinking we can win, the press are the ones creating the hype not the fans. Almost every England fan I speak to are more realistic in their expectations.

It's not expecting too much to want to beat one of the lowest placed teams in the competition or at least put in a better, more positive performance.

But I get that it might have been down to the manager trying to manage the campaign.

Oh I agree we probably should have beaten one of the lowest placed teams, and yes it could well have been more about the 2nd part.

I want us to go out and win games, not go out and not lose them, especially when playing a poor side.

Hopefully tomorrows game he will pick a side to go out and attack and entertain rather than sitting back and containing the opposition.
