  1. Not sure. He is on loan to Alaves but is yet to play ( even as a sub!!)
  2. Yup, feeling sore. Remember though that we have just lost to the best in world and the WC quarter finalists. That's what can happen to a 47 th ranked team!! As for the revisionists re Strachan and Mc Leish. C' Mon get a grip. Strachan with his very increasingly odd selections and plain stupid statements was a busted flush. Mc Leish was clearly not cutting it. Getting to Nation's League doesn't disguise this IMO as the opposition were truly low grade. Qualification was the least tone expected and even then we fell over the line. The future is promising. The manager is sound. As for the squad we know we are strong enough in midfield to dominate the team's we are likely to face. Goalie will do. Defence and attack need attended and will be under Clarke; Defence; Centre backs to be drawn from Mc Kenna, Souttar, Mulgrew and Halkett. Cooper and perhaps Lindsay or indeed Gallagher at Motherwell as back ups. Then there is Tierney who could ( and has) played left centre back. These I feel are all promising options. As for RB we have IMO Paterson who is now fit. Back ups could be O'Donnell and again Tierney. ( If Mc Grain could switch Tierney could do likewise). Strikers. Got to get Griff back with back up provided by Naisy who I feel has enough petrol left in tank to hurt the standard of opposition to be faced in March. Fletcher too if he is still available? What was outcome of his chat with Clarke? Snoddy is also a consideration as are Russell and Phillips who last night never stopped trying. As for Mc Burnie. No. Having endured first hand his ' efforts' in Astana and last Friday he surely shows the absurdity of the English transfer system. 20million---- God help us all. There are solid grounds for hope. Just need a lot of factors to fall into place at same time. BELIEVE.
  3. I'm surprised now he is back fit ( he is playing tonight from start ) that Paterson of Cardiff is not in squad. Whilst not the greatest player I feel he offers variety in so far as he can play defence, midfield and attack.
  4. Appologies if covered elsewhere but when is the announcement made.
  5. Anyone any idea of the official attendance for Tuesday's match in Brussels?
  6. No one taking anything for granted but this Kazakhstan team are nothing like as good as Georgia was then or now.
  7. Like a combination of a theme park and the back lot in Hollywood. Dripping money and today about to change its name after the parliament decided to name the place after the president who resigned after 30+ years in office. People are brand new and clearly intrigued by the TA' s form of dress and daftness. Very cold as in it would cut the face off you!!
  8. Was up at Astana Arena today. Got speaking to Kazakhstan press officer who said they will be without their captain . They will also have their best midfielder unavailable. Nice to know it's not just us who lose players. Btw they feel their best hope is a draw.
  9. Just hope this doesn't resemble the Matt Ritchie situation before our Slovakia/Slovenia double header when his reason for pulling out the squad was " precautionary" !!! Ritchie then of course played for his club team on the next available opportunity 😠 I still seethe about Ritchie as he could easily have been the difference in getting us to the play offs.
  10. Spoke to SFA today who said our allocation has now been taken up in full. I'm still looking for a ticket. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Posted elsewhere but if anyone has an extra match ticket for Kazakhstan ( away) I'd be very happy to take it off your hands. Will be happy to visit for pick up.
  12. Anyone got an extra ticket. Happy to visit owner for pick up.
