    Scotland will go down in History as the country who taught the world how to play the beautiful game and if you dont know what I am talking about.

    The Scotch Proffesors what the modern game is based on!

    Taught the World how to play football ? Really ? Here we go with pub facts again , all I read there was mercenary Scots moved down South for the Queens shilling , not the first nor the last .
    Football as we know it started in England , the dates mentioned there are late , there were many professional clubs by that period , you will be telling me the Scots showed the Brazilians how to play the game and not Southampton FC , we could talk about patents as opposed to inventions next .
    Small man syndrome .

    no, I just remember how crap they were intil they got there foreign money, they were so desperate to BUY success that they let any chancer who said he had money hold them up for ridicule until they got it. 'there's only one Micheal Knighton, one Micheal Knighton, there's only one Micheal Knighton', not even Chelsea or Man City whored themselves as much as United.

    W hat a strange description of Man Utd and Sir Alex. What is your explanation of how Aberdeen beat Real Madrid in the Cup-winners Cup final when Fergie was there? Just curious.

    Oh I did , all that means is its been written or edited by a biased Scot , surprise surprise .
    A Brazilian named Miller of Anglo and Scottish descent went to Southampton and learnt the game and rules of modern day football and took this knowledge back with him to Brazil .
    These are the facts , don't let bullshite romantic notions of Scots showing the World football get on the way though.....

    That's well misplaced , if England are the top ten rankings how come Scotland are in the top 50 ?

    No, it's football, and the thread is about Scotland, not Ireland. (and Irelands first sport isn't football...)
