Scotland 1, Macedonia 1. (Bring back Bertie, All Is Forgiven)

How Scotland escaped from the game last night with a draw is a complete mystery to me.  Macedonia were excellent, with Goran Pandev in particular outstanding.  They must be returning to Skopje today wondering how the hell they did not leave Glasgow with all three points.  We are only five days into a qualifying campaign that runs over 13 months, and hope is evaporating fast.  Under Craig Levein’s stewardship Scotland will not have a hope in hell of getting to Brazil in 2014.

He must go, now.  The next match is away to Wales in October.  This is a game we MUST win now.  It is also a game I am quite keen to go to, but I am struggling to arouse any enthusiasm after the last two inept displays.  Three wins in ten competitive matches is not good enough.  Craig Levein is completely out of his depth, and if the man had a shred of self-awareness he would know this.

Last night’s attendance was reportedly the lowest Hampden has seen for a competitive match in many years.  This shows the lack of faith the Tartan Army currently has in it’s manager.  With the limited resources at our disposal, it is a form of suicide to persist with a man who can’t even keep the ’12th man’ onside.  We need inspired and reinvigorated.  Craig Levein is not the man to do that.

Bring back Bertie!  All is forgiven!
