    Listened to them all so far and I’d highly recommend it. Good work.👍

    Mikey Johnston. Thoughts..

    No great rush for him as an international as we have Forrest and Fraser doing well at the moment. Its crucial that Johnston and Morgan get game time to aid their development.

    McNulty with his first goal for Reading. He’s found starts hard to come by but it’d be good to see him get a run in the team.

    I’d say he’s still considerably better than any other option as 3rd keeper.

    Your first Scotland match

    This was my first. Went after school in my mates dads car which was seriously overloaded. Went to the rest of the home qualifiers in that campaign. Had a few dabbles with the national team since then until Dortmund in 2014 when I finally got the bug.

    Albania vs Scotland - Match Thread [17/11/2018]

    Exactly, the guy is 60 and gets his words mixed up now and then, I’m 44 and struggle to remember what I had for breakfast. Bobby Robson couldn’t remember certain players names but I don’t remember him getting the same level of ridicule.

    Squad to play Albania and Israel

    There’s no way he’d get binned even if we lose both games. He’ll get the chance to make an arse of the qualifiers as well then get binned when it’s beyond repair.

    I think he’ll start with Fletcher on Saturday, all going well result wise Patterson will come on for last 15/20 with a view to starting against Israel. Patterson then starts against Israel, tucks a couple of goals and goes onto score 31 goals for his country as a centre forward. Am I getting carried away?

    His goal scoring record was poor but I got really annoyed with his lack of physical presence, for a big lad he was far too easily outmuscled. I’d go with Rhodes for the next 2 games.

    McArthur Retires

    Not a massive surprise. https://www.scottishfa.co.uk/news/james-mcarthur-retires-from-international-duty/?rid=13925

    Liam Cooper

    I think he was the only player in the squad for the Czech/Denmark friendlies a few years back who didn’t get a run which was odd, then I saw him play a few times and realised why. From what I’ve seen he’s average at best but has nowhere near the composure required for international football and would be behind Hanley, Lindsay and Murray Wallace in the pecking order. Add that to rumours that he’s not interested in playing for us and it’s unlikely he’ll ever be selected.

    There are a few players who would be better in that position than Tierney but Liam Cooper isn’t one of them.

    He refused a couple of call ups early on in Strachan’s reign, wasn’t keen to travel if he wasn’t going to get game time.
