Daft number of Anglos playing at decent clubs and whilst not all club star players mainly decent quality- cannot really do this now as we never get to tournaments, but even if we did the Anglos are in the main squad players, though Tierney to Arsenal and McGinn at Villa and of course Roberson at Liverpool and McTominie at United help- we just need a couple of really good Scottish strikers playing regularly for some of the top ten clubs (well that and some centre halfs and a couple more midfielders)

Just as ww2 broke out, a lot of Irishmen went to Glasgow so the could fight against the nazi regime for Britain and when the war was over and these poor people who didn't need to fight in the war came back they were treated as the enemy by protestants. They couldn't get jobs or accommodation even though they put their life on the line for Britain just because they were Catholic. So when it comes to rememberance day it would feel like remembering betrayal.
