Friday of last week saw the start of the 2016 European Championships in France.

France, across the channel, but too far away for us, Scotland.

Failed to qualify for yet another major international football competition.

Football, a sport we consider to be our national sport, but one we are great at glorious failure.

France 2016, and we’re not there, but all the other home nations are.

Follow the scores and watch the games, but do we real support anyone as we’re not there?

Feel it’s more about wanting some good football, and plenty of goals, as intimately Scotland’s not there, so my heart’s not in supporting anyone else.

France 2016, hopefully the last of the major championships we miss out on, but good luck everyone who’s there.

Fast, flowing football with lots of goals please.
