Scotland fancy stuff all set to stop against Serbia
Did you know yellow cars cause more insects deaths per year than any other coloured car and did you know one grain of salt will reduce your life expectancy by 2.3 minutes?
I have no idea if those are actual facts, I spotted them on a blog on the interweb but I was startled by it all the same but not as amazed as I was when doing research for Scotland versus Serbia on Saturday.
Did you know both teams have scored in seven of Scotland's nine matches since the start of last season?
I thought they were a boring bunch under Craig Levein, a man made infamous for that gung-ho 4-6-0 formation away to Czech Republic which was then copied by Spain to win Euro 2012.
However, I fancy the fancy stuff to stop and backing no goalscorer is my idea of a fun bet in this World Cup qualifier at Hampden and I will be doubling the stakes if Kenny Miller is in the starting 11.
Serbia are full of quality at the back even with Nemanja Vidic missing with Branislav Ivanovic and Neven Subotic plus a load of other giants that won't be beaten but I have seen more firepower in a water pistol.
The Serbian squad have scored a total of 17 goals, nobody has more than seven and the four forwards who travelled have managed precisely zero goals. It's a bit like having Emile Heskey in the squad without his goalscoring threat.
Anyway, did you know it's illegal for a restaurant in Algiers to print a menu in a language other than French.
Sacre bleu, I tell you something, these international breaks are incredibly boring. Pass me the salt and lets get this over with quickly.
