    I make that 10 Scots in the English Prem next season (before transfers)

    Squad for Mexico and Peru

    I thought all the players were written to asking about availability? If so then drop outs should surely be very small.

    I think both the risks and rewards of going abroad are greater than staying at home. He could sink, certainly, but I think the benefits outweigh those risks.

    Robertson was in today's Observer Premier League team of the year.

    I think It's a dead-end trying to find a single league to compare to the SPL. Scotland's not a large country so there is naturally a great difference in quality between the top and the bottom. The top of the SPL could be English Prem level whilst the bottom could be League 1 (or whatever).

    I know what you are saying but a number are still young. The general level is good and there is strength in depth. As yiu say, what we don't have is a Man Utd/Liverpool/Monaco/Dortmund level player in midfield (If we take McTominay out for a minute to consider he's developing for the sake of argument) but that's not the end of the world. This team is stronger throughout than it has been for a few years.

    Guess it depends on your view of 'international class'. If you're talking about the level of players at Real Madrid then you are right but Scotland have now got a list of players that would comfortably play the English Premier League and other top leagues. Cairney, McGregor, Armstrong, McGinn, McTominay, Fraser, McArthur, phillips, Paterson and Ritchie come to mind straight away. As I say, not the world's greatest but I am happy with a midfield comprising if those. The others like Cochrane and Gilmour are the ones bubbling under that all teams need.

    Brilliant free kick for Naismith's goal.

    Centre Backs.

    I've not heard of him before but apparantly He's a left sided centre back who I do know plays next to left back Tony Gallagher. Great news to see that, at last, there may be cover in future for our problematic left side. 😉

    Callum Paterson

    I'm not saying it's anywhere near sorted but it's very pleasing to see that options are appearing right across the decence

    Trying to figure out why Henderson wasn't included in Bari's win at the weekend. Turns out he was sent off the week before for kicking a Palermo player in the back of the leg.

    Same here. He has had positive reviews lately though. Also, as it stands 5 Scots will be relegated from the EPL. A minimum of 2 will be promoted.

    McGregor was my man of the match against Hungary. He's some player. And I'd be surprised if an English Premier league team didn't come calling. Not saying a top 6 but a top 10 team.

    Scott McTominay

    I think it is positive. However... I read an interesting article a while ago about how much the accusation that he never brings through youngsters gets under his skin. Bigging up McTominay helps to defend himself. That's not to undermine his ability and achievements.

    Gary Neville team of the year

    Was he not rubbishing Robertson a few months ago? I had the impression at the time that it was a bit dismissive and lumping him into the reasons why Liverpool's defence was so poor but he certainly wasn't talking him up. Anyway, just goes to show how his stock has risen. I hope this isn't too controversial but seeing Rangers let Tierney wander through their defence at the weekend it's hard to be able to compare the two.
