Thanks Neilly for confirming my points above re Monarchy and Brexit. 

There are idiots in every support base. 

The Scott's treated us very well over the weekend, would feel safe going back. 
No point in quoting polls now, the polls before the referendum predicted a yes vote. You had the chance of Independence and blew it. Results:
The "No" side won with 2,001,926 (55.3%) voting against independence and 1,617,989 (44.7%) voting in favour. 

Point of order  - i think one poll predicted a Yes win which so put the wind up the British establishment they threw every thing at it .

Given that pretty much all media outlets were 'Better Together friendlly if not darn right hostile to independence  it was a decent result to build on and giving 16 Yo the vote was genius

Glasgow a massive city? Jesus you must not have travelled much if you think a city of well under 2 million is a massive city. 

Not in terms of Population but if using Dublin as comparison. Dublin is 117km squared and Glasgow is 175km squared so if that is what you're use to as a large city then it would seem comparably large. 

I am not sure if the above covers areas that wouldn't be described as being part of the city. 

London is 1572km squared.
Tokyo is 8547km squared.

A tour of Celtic Park was a great finish to the trip. 

Very grateful not to have been stuck in Edinburgh airport for 12 hours yesterday. Thankfully our flight to Shannon was only delayed by an hour. 

The Scott's were very sound. We didn't wear any Irish gear (outside the stadium) during the dark hours. We never felt under threat. Would feel safe going again.

Hampden Park, despite being a good bit outside of the centre, is a lovely stadium and really contained the atmosphere. 

I don't think the "What's it like to have a King?" chant was necessary. A lot of the Scott's don't even want a king/queen, they're not in favour of the monarchy. Scotland voted to stay in the EU (unlike England and Wales). A bit unfair to abuse a team/supporters about something they're not in favour of. 

That's what makes it better, they don't want to have a King but he is there head of state. I thought that was the entire point of the chant. Bit of a wind up. 

I am sure there are some fans more than happy to have a King.

Police your own fans.

If I booed your anthem I'd be booted out of Lansddowne by other Irish fans.


No you wouldn’t 


You'd be told to shut the f**k up though.

Yeah some would do that and some would ignore you.  

People have to realise that there is a large section of Scottish society generally based in Glasgow who support international teams other than Scotland.  Some people living in Glasgow support England and others grow up supporting Ireland.  This creates resentment in Scottish society amongst those who support Scottish National team and some as a result don’t like England or Ireland as they see the Scots who cheer for them as traitors.  The old firm fans who do this are not liked by the Tartan Army.  No excuse for booing the anthem but I wouldn’t be crying about it either. 

How would we like it if the people of cork decided some were going to support Wales and others would support England.  Actually we may not give a sh*t as most of cork don’t support the Irish team to begin with since 2002 😀

There have always been Celtic fans who have supported Ireland over Scotland, getting less so nowadays Id say, folk like myself would always have a soft spot for Ireland but in terms of them playing Scotland would never support Ireland over Scotland. Rangers fans never ever used to support england but it started creeping in about 15 to 20 years ago when you'd see some of the stauncher of them walking around in England tops, think they liked the shock value of it and that some of them detest the Tartan Army because their values dont match. Its a complicated situation. i know a fair few Rangers fans and none of them support England but then the guys i know that support Rangers are pro Independence and generally dont even go to Ibrox because theyre not into the union jack waving stuff that goes on. Its probably gotten a wee bit worse since the re-incarnation of Rangers, their PR boss David Graham is a staunch loyal citizen from the 6 counties and Rangers in more recent times have been playing to their lowest common denominator.

Left The Tolbooth early on Saturday and ventured towards the Barras Market area.
Said we'd go to the the next sh*t hole pub we saw and it did not disappoint. Place called Braemar Bar.

No one else in there, no music or tv. Talking to the barman who must have been a recovering drug addict. Said the pub was home of the Johnny Cash Celtic Supporters Club.

MacKinnons where they let us bring in food from across the road and some characters in there.
On the way back after the match we went to the Star Bar. Place that looked stuck in the 70's. Carpets, wooden paneling and auld wans doing karaoke. Shame it closed at 12.
Not the kind of places you'd want to be going all the time or to bring a date, but perfect for an away trip.

These are the places to be! 

Full of characters, last time we played Scotland, we were in a bar in Gallowgate and I was playing pool against some old man in his 60's. Rough as f**k looking, and he appeared to have been hit in the face with a hatched or meat clever.

Good trip - great session in the Baby Grand the day of the game. Away end was heaving, absolutely cracking atmosphere in there. Definitely been an improvement in the noise post-covid - Luxembourg and Lodz were decent as well.

Rangers support started to drift away from Scotland late 80s early 90s, when souness brought the english internationals up here due to the english european ban this then coincided somewhat with Celtic players no longer being booed at Hampden, which maybe made it a more welcoming place for anyone of Irish descent who wished to support Scotland, Ive been to 4 Ireland games in Glasgow against scotland and this will always bring out the worst in sections of the TA, Mel Gibson then made Braveheart in 95 and produced a new generation of patriotic scottish fans. LOL

I thought the atmosphere was very good and friendly throughout the trip, definitely better than 2014. Even in terms of the police, they seemed a lot more on guard in 2014 whereas Saturday was more jovial. Maybe as the home section was more mixed in 2014.

Had pints with some Scottish guys on Thursday who were lovely. Walked back from Hampden mixed with plenty and ended up in the Scotia Bar just over the bridge. Place was great and rammed with Scots, most of whom were off to Poland on Sunday. Good laugh all round, bar the result obviously which was very hard to take after such a good first half but they softened the blow afterwards and were very . Their main complaint was we didn't join in as much as they wanted with anti English songs during the match!
