  1. New jerseys?

    Absolutely horrible top, but at least it's not pink.
  2. Squad and new players

    In terms of winning tackles, and blocking shots, and winning headers, Berra is probably the best defender we have. The problem is, the modern centre-half needs to be comfortable with the ball at his feet too, and Berra isn't. As far as I can tell, Lindsay is in the same mould as Berra. I guess that's why they're not in the squad.

    Paterson can play right-back, just like Tierney can play right-back, and Russell Martin can play right-back. From what I've seen of Paterson at right-back I would say he's not a good enough defender to play there for Scotland (last two games 3-0 v England, 3-0 v Slovakia). The fact that Cardiff prefer playing him further up the park suggests they're not convinced by his defensive qualities either.

    That's a really good goal. It's interesting to see his positioning as well - trying to find spaces in front of the defence. From what I've seen McBurnie doesn't like playing as the target man - he's not an out-and-out striker. I think his ideal position is on the left of a front 3.

    See Snodgrass got another assist last night. Now on 13. Douglas got another assist aswell. Now on 12. It seems Cardiff have completely given up on Paterson as a defender. He's now a goal-scoring midfielder.

    That's a decent side. I'm not sure Archer has done enough to earn a cap yet. McTominay and Cairney are the two best passers of a ball we have. Passing the ball is also one of Robertson's biggest strengths. The three of them together looks like a really good combination on paper. But Paterson is the exact opposite - passing the ball is his biggest weakness. Forrest - 21 caps and no goals speaks for itself. McBurnie has been playing on the left of a front three for Barnsley. I don't think Cummings has done anywhere near enough to be in the squad, but, once again, he's the only centre-forward. McGregor Hanley...Mulgrew...Tierney Fraser...McTominay...Cairney...Robertson Ritchie...Cummings...McBurnie

    No Berra or Lindsay? Surprised to see no sign of Snodgrass or Griffiths. With the exceptions of Armstrong and Ritchie, it leaves us with a midfield and front-line that have never scored.

    It's maybe not ridiculous, but right now saying he could still choose England is just pointless speculation. Here's a recent article about him from the Daily Mail http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-5314289/Evertons-Fraser-Hornby-solution-Toffees.html

    I missed this at the time. A teenage striker getting his debut at an EPL club is positive.

    Details of the upcoming games here. https://www.uefa.com/under19/season=2018/teams/team=300117/index.html Games are all being played near Dortmund.

    SFA website is predictably useless. But, apparently they beat Denmark 1-0 with a goal from Hornby. And beat Austria 3-2 with 2 goals from Aitchison and 1 from Rudden.
  12. Angus Gunn

    I came across a good article about Bryan Gunn just the other day http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/news-and-comment/author-of-a-different-kind-of-football-book-fighting-back-with-the-gunns-421437.html He's quoted as saying
  13. Replacement for Brown?

    If we play with a holding midfielder, we have quite a few options. If McTominay decides to play for us, then he would be the leading contender IMO. After that, McGinn, McArthur, MacDonald, Fletcher, Coutts, Bridcutt could all play there.
  14. Scottish Players in action 17/18

    4 goals in 4 starts for a team that has struggled to score goals all season.
  15. Scottish Players in action 17/18

    John Fleck got two assists last night. Fleck (and Sheffield Utd) seemed to go completely off the boil after Coutts got injured, but Fleck, at least, seems to have rediscovered a bit of form.
