    Centre Backs.

    Wasn't a very good weekend for our potential future cbs. McKenna and mccrorie both had pretty poor games. Hopefully it's just blip although I think mccrorie is probably more a central midfielder than a centre back.

    Tbf we don't have any top class CBS and he is only 21, if he can go onto develop into a bundesliga CB then he would easily be good enough for scotland. Wether that will happen is another question. He does do the basics of defending well but is technically not a great footballer but at the age of 21 he can maybe improve which Hamburg have perhaps thought is a possibility too.

    Tbf to bates he went from Raith to rangers which was a big step up and he struggled a bit at first. But He's shown this season that he does the basics of defending well and he is only 21 so can always improve in the future. Hopefully this move helps him get better and we see him become a bundesliga defender in the future.

    Archer will probably be an epl keeper in the next few years wether that's with Millwall or with a epl club that buys him. He's only 24 and should of been used in the games we had against either Hungary or Costa rica as there's a good chance he will be our keeper in the near future.

    He's playing well, not sure I would call it the best of his career. He's played a fair few blinders for Liverpool this season.

    Hendry was instrumental in Blackburn winning the premier league in 95 and played for years there in the English top flight. Guy was a decent CB, maybe not a world class one but he was reasonably solid at international level. Calderwood was decent as well. What we would give to have them two these days.

    Who would you have back in the squad

    Snodgrass and Berra should be back in the squad.

    Robertson played well today and played a solid 7/10. Good assist as well.

    Match Thread - Hungary

    I think he should be given another chance or two to show what he can do in a midfield of Armstrong and McGregor as he is a good player imo.

    Was a decent performance, we defo need to play Armstrong imo as the guy drives us forward. McKenna has shown over the two games that he could be good enough at this level. Put in Tierney and Griffith's into that team and I would be happy enough.

    Starting Line-Up V Hungary

    Yeh gotta agree with this. I would start mcburnie again and Mibbe give Cummings a run out in the second half.

    My Opinion on Debutants

    That's a pretty fair analysis imo. I would personally only give mcburnie more game time when the serious games start as I think he did reasonably well given the difficult job he had. McKenna maybe deserves another chance in the friendly games as well as he was solid enough.

    Match Thread - Costa Rica

    Yeh they are a good side and we tried out alot of new players so we shouldn't be too hard on ourselves. I would imagine it was a strong team given the amount of caps their team had. I think we should be looking to bring in Armstrong,snodgrass, fraser, Berra, Griffith's andTierney into the first team for when the serious stuff starts. McKenna and mcburnie did ok imo and outside of Griffith's we don't have much in the striker dept. so I think mcburnie deserves another game or two to show what he can do.

    He's got the technical ability to do a good job at rb. It's defo an option we should consider. He's certainly too good to leave out when he could probably do a better job at rb than Patterson.

    Mctominay, McGregor, Fraser never played last campaign, also Armstrong and Griffith's played only half the campaign so reality is yer points rubbish, plenty of changes while maintaining the guys who gave us a good second half of the campaign.
