A lot of positivity in the media for Scotland. While i agree we have a better team than in previous years, i fear some are going overboard with their predictions. I am auld enough to remember all the hype in 78 and Ally's tartan army  etc. That didn't exactly go to plan. Hope i am wrong. If we get out the group stages for the first time ever that would be great imo. Anything better would be a bonus.

I didn’t realise that 4 of the best 3rd placed teams progress, so from the groups, only 6 teams go home. Czech game will probably decide our fate.

24 start, 16 go through, so 8 rather than 6 go home.

I think 4 points just about guarantees survival and 3 (ie 1 win or 3 draws) gives a very good chance, though in the same scenario we were knocked out of Italia 1992 with 3 points.

Lets make it 3 wins, which should remove any doubt, but then again, this is Scotland

Underdog prediction came right this time, but I would never have wanted it to be in these circumstances.

Good to hear that Eriksen seems to be recovering well. Credit to his team mates for continuing, but I really hope that was their free choice.

A lot of credit to the medical staff at the stadium, I think they played a big part in his survival.

Half way through Match Day 1. I won't publish an interim table as it would be skewed against those whose favourite team have yet to  play. Here, though, are a few figures.

The average points scored by each player is 5.4, 12 players are above average.

 

I should have posted an 'at a glance' reference to all the predictions. Will do so for all forthcoming rounds. Here are the predictions for the rest of this round. For ease of access, these will also be posted in the second post, at the top of the thread.

Please note that the deadline for Match Day 2 predictions is just 16 hours (overnight) after the conclusion of Match Day 1 fixtures. Best start thinking about them now.
