This week Craig Levein prepares for what surely are the biggest 180 minutes of his managerial career. Two games that will either save his job and keep Scotland in the hunt for a place at the 2014 World Cup, or will see his and our dream die.
Scotland travel to Cardiff on Friday to face a Welsh side who have a good record against the Scots in recent friendlies, however they have started the campaign worse than we have. Are they there for the taking, or have we got them at the wrong time?
Then on Tuesday the group favourites Belgium host Levein's men, with many feeling a point would be a huge bonus for the Tartan Army.
On this week's The Away End podcast (http://theawayend.libsyn.com) we're trying to be positive, and can see Scotland sneaking a 2-1 victory in Cardiff. Ladbrokes are offering odds of 10/1 for that.
Eilidh Roe, making her debut on the podcast, said: "I'll say 2-1 Scotland, because Wales will score.
"We have the players, but I'm not sure we have the right manager."
Daniel Hayes said: "I can't see us keeping a clean sheet, but fairytale goals from Steven Fletcher and Kris Commons will sneak us a win."
Elsewhere, we already have started looking for favours from others in the group. Two draws between Serbia v Belgium and Macedonia v Croatia would be a dream for Craig Levein.
Therefore, to see a treble of Scotland to win and two draws, Ladbrokes will pay odds of 27.30 - or £68.25 for a £2.50 treble.
The Away End bets:
We've now raked in £78.50 in winnings so far this season, £25.88 alone this month, to stick with The Away End to bash the bookies.
Wales v Scotland
£2.50 1-2 correct score 10/1
£2.50 treble - Scotland to win, and both Serbia/Belgium and Macedonia/Crotia to end in draws
