Three points is a must tonight as Scotland take on the Faeros tonight as football pundit and Largs Thistle legned George Wall reflects on the campaign so far...

It was a great overhead kick goal by John McGinn against Austria - what a finish which was the highlight of our start to the World Cup qualifying campaign. 
We showed some great fighting spirit to respond twice - and might even have won it.
However, after the draw against Israel, everyone feels a bit deflated.
No defeats in the first two games is the positive factor from these matches but I feel as a country we expected much more. 
We were on a high after qualifying for the Euros and we were looking forward to World Cup campaign but it just never happened for us. 
Despite the positive noises coming out of the Scotland camp after the Austria game we never looked to be capable of winning the Israel game. 
With us playing Israel a few times recently, it has become something of a derby match.
I just thought we would have made a better effort to go win the game. 
To qualify out the group we should have been targeting four points from the first two games. Why we were not more attack minded against Israel is a strange one. 
On a positive note I think Che Adams could be a player for us and showed enough against Israel to show that he could a handful for the opposition.
Team of the week for me was Germany, are they back? I thought they have been very impressive in the games so far. 
Result of the week in case you missed it Republic of Ireland 0 - 1 Luxembourg, no way did anyone see that coming - the old adage is that there are no easy games in international football, but look at Denmark chalking up their biggest ever qualifying result 8-0 against Moldova.
* It was a surprise to me that Scott Brown left Celtic for a two year deal at Aberdeen. 
I thought he would have stayed at Celtic unless the new manager indicated he did not want him. These things happen.
After 10 seasons at Largs the manager did not want me, so I left. 

At the start of the next season I played a few games for Benburb but it was just not the same as playing for Largs where I had such good times so I gave up playing. Largs really was a rollercoaster, the highs, the lows, a great club, great fans, where I played with great players and made friends for life, what a experience. 
Later in the season I took in a Greenock v Largs cup game and and left thinking I am as good as anything on that pitch. The Greenock manager George Glancy had spoken to me earlier about signing so I got in touch and signed which was a bit of a coming full circle as Greenock wanted to sign me before I went to Largs . I stayed at Greenock for three seasons before giving it up for the assistant managers job at Beith however at Greenock I won player of the year and captained the club to promotion. 
I always thought when I played for Greenock I had a point to prove maybe Scott is thinking the same - he may be out to prove a point that he is still a player.
