    Scottish Players in Action 18/19

    McBurnie did very well the Championship and i think it would be better to keep him involved if Griffiths unfit. I’d also like to see Russell used as a striker. McLeish will probably also play Phillips as a centre forward where required. If Hornby plays first team football at Everton or on loan, I’d have him in the squad, as I could see within 10 seconds he was a player. Fair enough if Rhodes is on fire he might be worth a thought if we’re desperate for a goal but it’s not looking good for him.

    No Morgan in the squad last night.

    Johnston/Middleton

    Turned out he had no pace.

    Johnston/Middleton

    From what I've seen, Middleton is more a no nonsense beat the man and get the ball in type. He’s got good pace and also scores goals. Johnston seems both quick and very skilful. He may be the better prospect, but it could go either way, and my hope is both will make it to the full squad. Morgan is also there and conceivably all 3 could play together, with the two footed Morgan in the middle.

    By no means did i say he will be. You just seemed depressed he made the first team.

    If Croatia can do it, so can we.

    I certainly agree with the latter. Gilmour and Cochrane have enough talent to play at the very top level albeit they need to work hard, as do all players who want to get there. They seem like they want it. Armstrong, McGregor and Griffiths would have got us qualified if they’d played the whole of the last campaign.

    Did you watch the Toulon Tournament? There is a fundamental change in our players. We now have players techincally way better than recent generations and physically better, too. Gilmour, Cochrane, Johnston, McGregor and Morgan all have a very high level of technical ability, plus I expect Gauld and Burke to finally deliver this season. We have Armstrong, Tierney, Robertson, Griffiths plus young centre halves with pace and height. This is a time for optimism.

    This is a most Scottish reply. I refer you to the Croatia thread!

    Practical solutions are important, but so is a fundamental belief that we can win football tournaments. Without that we can forget it.

    Fair enough.

    A country of 5 million can’t aspire to be as good as a country of 4 million? Do you live under a bridge?

    It’s remarkable how this thread has become about looking for excuses as to why we can’t be as good as them. Absolutely remarkable.

    Your reply hits the nail on the existential head.

    There’s no reason Scotland can’t get to a World Cup final. Don’t believe anyone who tells you otherwise.
