...and Colin is playing a blinder too. Looks winning to me Big Grin
Yes. Black has just resigned. Mate seems inevitable. Wow! First Alan, now Colin. Fantastic!
... But well fought by Denmark to overcome the Scots' rearguard action and square the match. Great entertainment. (Instructive, too.)
I think we would have taken a 2-2 draw before the match started.

To take is not the same as to agree. 8)
Belgium today. Our chance to lay down a marker before qualification for Rio starts.
Good save from John, this one.
Yup, Colin pulled that from the fire as well. Wonder if Levein is watching, John at CB can't be any worse than Caldwell. Pretty solid.

disappointed my motion had little discussion at AGM
Surely after Jacob plays today and wins next year's scottish again , someone else will propose a motion which I will second

In my opinion it's an utter disgrace to have such a situation. For years I've advocated how Scottish Champ should get an place in the national team - but not that of the opposition! Anyone who thinks it's OK to have someone as our national champion who then sits down and plays for his true nation against Scotland just a few months later should hold there head in shame.

Jacob Aagaard - Scottish Open Champion? ...Yes and well done. Danish National Champion? ...Good luck to you. Scottish National Champion? ...you're having a laugh.
