    SFA cut yer losses

    i speak three different languages and i'm far from insular. no nationality is better or worse at managing football teams. It's got heehaw to do with where they're born. If you did want to do a list of achievements, which in my view is pointless, you'd find Scots are right up there. every person is different. I'd rather they knew the pool of players. whether that's a Jamaican or not i don't care. on the same note, going foreign as if that in itself fixes things I don't understand. It's as relevant as whether they have black or blonde hair.

    i don't care he's still better than the midfielders playing at the moment. Does that McDonald actually play in the premier league? i genuinely don't know, wiki says he's played two games.

    Has he no managed Genk and in Egypt? haha. Where is the dinosaur stuff coming from? we don't need a foreign manager or a young manager. we need a good manager.

    i don't see what difference the nationality makes to be honest. think it's a red herring. All they'd do is take a while to get to know the players. I'd rather my manager knew my pool inside out from the get go.

    Can only go by what we see in a Scotland shirt and i'm not impressed. I want to like him but he's not doing it. He's a man down.

    This is a former Scotland player that's won trophies against Martin O'Neill' s Celtic , managed in PL and had the team win one of the best games ever in France. He should be good enough and know what it takes. I can't get my head round that performance yesterday. The players don't seem to back the tactics. I think the players ate more to blame than the manager though. Woeful performance from players that should be more than capable of beating Israel...or at least passing the ball to each other. False rumours about a man having a drink problem should be knocked on the head by the way. That's poor.

    I've no idea why O'Donnell is getting a particular going over and McGinn and McDonald are getting let off. To me it's those two that lost the battle that's costs us. Those two were inept and didn't give the defence a break all game. McGinn scruff of the kneck..😐 looked like a wee boy. McDonald was hopeless. Neither of them had the balls to come and take the ball and give the team a grounding in the game. Armstrong must start the next game. and a defensive mid desparately needed. Would take shinnie now.

    Indy Ref 2

    Opinons have hardened. There isn't the third of people that were against but would quite like the idea in an ideal world. They're already in the bag. It will also be a much nastier campaign and i don't think that will suit yes. Yes was about hope last time, it will be about a lifeboat this time and that will draw negatives.

    Indy Ref 2

    We have a duty to put it to the people now in my view. Unfortunately we don't have an answer to border checks with an England/Wales out of the EU and I think this will hit hard. We didn't need to have a real argument against that in the last vote; a border was pure scaremongering and easily cast aside while we were all in the EU. That won't be the case now. Neither is it the SNP's fault. It's just reality. A currency union in the EU was also much easier to argue. A currency union of Scotland in the EU and England out is much more difficult. A new currency is a really hard sell as much as people think it's the answer. It polls awfully. There was a reason currency union was used in 2014. CU allowed the door to be opened to independence conversations with undecideds. A new currency would have kept the door shut. Sands may have shifted a bit but it's still a big ask. There's a reason No went on currency hard but they would have gone even harder on a new currency.

    It could be very yes friendly the other way. people might say Yes in the knowledge that a real choice is not actually available right now. It's a protest tick in the box over the brexit chaos without any consequence. It's really hard to say what would happen if a vote was called.

    russia poisioning

    Not sure where the thread is heading but it's looking pretty obvious the two Russians weren't at Salisbury for a wee jaunt as they claim. who knows what the truth is but the British angle does seem far more credible given the recent news.

    league cup

    Fair enough, I don't agree. Surely more likely for paths to cross when 25k are literally going to the same stadium at the same time and nothing has happened for years. The '90k' are not all getting on the one platform, a lot of/most (?) of them won't even see the city centre. The proportion of dons staying behind will be tiny on a sunday. The minority of fans will always be a worry regardless.
