    Scottish player transfers

    Not got a suitable thread for this so thought I'd start a new one. Anyway, there seems to be a rumour that Bologna and Parma are both after Liam Henderson who has impressed during his time at Bari. Even if it doesn't go ahead it's really pleasing to see he's made a good go of it. I've not seen him at Bari but this would suggest he's close to the Scotland squad (although in a position where we have plenty of competition). Transfer news affecting national team players seems quiet at the moment although one mention of McGregor to Bournemouth.

    Sammut is interesting as he's not really stood out. He didn't get picked for Toulon did he? That said, some players come through at different rates so onky time will tell.

    I see St Clair is referencing Henderson as a model which is great. McLeish must be gutted. I guess he's just going to have to drag himself to Florence and Venice next season to thoroughly check out how they are getting on (or wherever Henderson ends up).

    And also the right person. It's quite a step to leave home at such a young age. Some are better staying close to their family and pals.

    Always a risk and you could say the same for Burke but young lads widening their horizons is surely mostly positive. And who knows, if Gauld turns it round we'll look back at this as a brilliant experience which supported his development?

    Interesting! Would be great to see lots of Scots lads dotted acrosd Europe in various leagues. Got to be good for the national team if that were the case but it's a big thibg to do for a teenager.

    It seems that Brighton, Southampton and West Brom are also after Armstrong.

    I agree but if he did move away this would be a good fit. Palace ended the season strongly and he may want to just test himself week in, week out.

    Daily Express are reporting that Crystal Palace are interested in Stuart Armstrong. Think that'd be a good move if he was to leave Celtic.

    Potential squad for Belgium

    I think that the the squad almost picks itself now. The only quibbles are minor. Hanley or Berra. Include O'Donnell? Other than it's fairly straight forward.

    Toulon Tournament

    I'm glad there are lots of folk putting this into proper perspective. It's a disappointing end but there's a lot to take away from this and this point above is spot on. Billy Gilmour looks like a player we do think will make it and he'll be hitting the squad as Robertson/Tierney/Fraser/McTominay/McKenna will still be in their mid 20s. Johnston looked good and Burke showed what a talent he is capable of becoming. A couple of others will also come through. So, I'm positive.

    It's the optimism round here that i love most. 😉

    Toulon Tournament

    So. England have finished their group 2nd on 7 points but the goal difference is +5. We are on 4 points and goal difference of +1. If we win and Togo don't we top the group and do through. If Togo win we need to win big.

    Toulon Tournament

    I think the reaction on here is a little negative. First half we were certainly the better team. We kept the ball well and passed well. Movement was excellent. Johnston and Burke stood out. In the second half it was a shame to see us back off but you could say it paid off. McRorie' s save was fantastic and the defence worked as one. Sadly It's hard to pick a defender out as I was watching on a small mobile phone. Not saying they will be worldbeaters. Just that it was great to see a Scotland team look so confident on the ball.

    Toulon Tournament

    No, I don't think he is the squad. Does anyone know why? Anyway, was so impressed last night to see a Scotland team so comfortable on the ball. Also disappointed we dropped back so much in the second half but never mind. Burke though showed why, as a teenager, he had clubs queuing up for him. There's one hell of a player in there. We just need somebody to get it out of him.

    Good goal by Burke.

    Anyone got the line up? I'm very impressed with this start. Excellent on the ball

    I'd like to watch the France game but not sure how. It's not on virgin and their website says It's freeview channel 95 which we don't have (and have re-tuned). It says on their Facebook page that it will be shown live. Is that on Facebook? If so, can you 'cast to see it on a proper telly? Sorry for the technical questions.

    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.

    Tierney

    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.
