    Best Scottish International player you've seen live?

    Andy Goram, Ally McCoist or Mo Johnston for me. Thought McFadden had a number of great moments in the shirt but on the whole, he didn't reach the heights we all hoped he would. Collins and Lambert were good players I also saw playing for Scotland.

    First job for mcleish....

    Indeed! "He is amazing," said Matic. "He is 21 and to play like that [against Chelsea] and control the game like that is impressive. He will be a big player for Manchester United. "I like him because he is a very nice guy and he doesn't have a problem to ask something before the game. I am always there to help him. "When I came to Manchester, I saw within a few days he would become a top player. "He is working very hard, but I don't want to say too many things about him because he is still very young. "But he deserves all the good things." http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11667/11270811/manchester-uniteds-scott-mctominay-to-be-big-player-says-nemanja-matic

    This news is a bit of a result I suppose! I Wasn’t expecting it after he turned down an earlier call up and had Southgate coming to see him. McTominay, 21, met Scotland boss Alex McLeish at United's Carrington training ground on Thursday. England boss Gareth Southgate was due to visit United on Friday but it is understood McTominay did not meet him. Does this indicate McLeish done such a good job of convincing him that he didn’t even hear Southgate out!? Seems hard to believe he didn’t even meet Southgate if he was there and wanting to see him. Lets hope he serves us well for many a year to come...

    Next Scotland Manager ?

    Interview with McLeish talking about his time with Scotland, (towards the bottom of the page in the link) http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/43079576

    Meant to add, I'm have taken McLeish over Smith without a doubt, they both left us but Smith done so in the middle of a campaign, whereas the situ with McLeish was much different.

    McLeish will do for me. I said at the start of the thread that a part of me would be happy to see him get the job. I'd only having taken Moyes closely ahead of him out of all the favourites. He's got experience playing for the jersey as he has managing the national team, both of which will stand him in good stead, as will the rest of his management experience including more recently acquired , albeit short, spells managing abroad. Had it not been for a dodgy referee McLeish could have taken us Euro 2008. We came close against all odds. More of the same with just a little bit more to get us over the line would see us in dreamland for the first time since 98 & I for one will be backing McLeish all the way in the hope & belief we'll be back at our 1st major finals in over 20 years. Wherever It Takes Us Whatever It Takes

    Please not Alex McLeish

    I feel the same for the most part, particularly rewarding him with a second chance after he walked on us first time around but the list of candidates is not brimming with great options and I feel he is a better choice than many of the others.

    Who Will Chuck It? Who Will Breakthrough?

    With Strachan gone, I think the likelihood of a few chucking it has increased, Brown in particular isn't happy with the decision to let Strachan go and indicates that many others share his sentiments.

    From that lot I think I'd go with wanting the SFA to give Moyes a go at the job. A part of me wouldn't mind seeing McLeish get it but the other part of me wouldn't be happy with rewarding him again after he walked out on us last time. McInnes is tempting but I feel it's not the right time for him. MacKay - Please No!

    Next Scotland Manager ?

    Who's Next ? Across the bookies the following candidates are mostly listed as the favourites, David Moyes Malkay Mackay Alex McLeish Paul Lambert Derek McInnes Scot Gemmill with some terrifying & ridiculous wild card suggestions coming in the form of Allardyce, Coyle, Lennon etc Who do you think will be the next Scotland manager ? Who would you like to be the next Scotland manager ?

    Strachan's gone

    I thought the following article mostly summed things up pretty well. http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/41600788 Strachan's time was both good and not so good. We put in some good performances and got some good results. The performances and the feel good factor were much improved on what was witnessed during the spells of the previous two manages but ultimately he failed when it came to qualification, which after all was what he was tasked to do so it's hard to say he hadn't failed and therefore had to go.

    Going vegan.

    For people to look at, just like you did! The information provided does not show as you have suggested. There is not an equal amount of vegans competing, therefore it is not indicative of meat eaters do better than vegans full stop.

    To stay or go?

    Daftest post of the year! He disgraced himself with the Auld Enemy resulting in him getting the boot after ONE game and we've got a madman thinking Scotland would do well to appoint not only an Englishman to run our national team but the same Englishman that disgraced their head coach position like no other! What's you poison of choice today Chris?

    Who Will Chuck It? Who Will Breakthrough?

    He was arguably our best player! He was certainly our best over the two matches. Fletch would be welcomed to stick it out, his passion, commitment and experience alone is an asset to the team and the squad as a whole.

    No thanks - I'd much rather watch a real scotland team with poor Scottish players than a pretended Scotland team with poor foreigners
