    Scottish Players in Action 18/19

    But Burke scored a double for West Brom u23s and Elliott Watt scored for Wolves u23s tonight.............. that’s about as good as it gets the now!🙈

    If you’ve watched Porteous play, he is a far too rash to be used in the full squad at the moment, would probably end up getting sent off! Having said that, once he matures a bit as a player he will be a Scotland cap, no doubt.

    I also see what Strachan was saying to an extent. But at the same time we’ve been saying for years that certain players aren’t getting the opportunity because they are “too wee”, and instead opting for physically bigger players to the detriment of actual technical ability. Then when other players catch up physically our lack of technical ability gets found out.

    Worst 90 minutes as a Scotland fan

    The 2-1 loss to Italy at Hampden was one of the worst for me......absolute rollercoaster of emotions that evening, from Luca Toni silencing us after just 2 mins, to the pure elation when Ferguson scored, then Faddy missed a sitter to put us ahead before the heart break of Italy’s winner from a shocking ref decision!

    Did Barry Ferguson not miss a sitter in that game as well to make it 3-0....... that was a sickener!

    Yeah I agree, he may need to move away from Rangers, to play regular first team football though. Gerrard has unfortunately moved to Ibrox and followed the pattern of a lot of managers in recent times, filling their squads with loan signings at the expense of developing their own players.

    Believe me, I completely understand how difficult it is to be positive in the current climate, but things are happening now at youth level which we can be a lot more optimistic about. Out of the current u21 squad, only a handful will become regular full internationalists in my opinion..... Porteous, Gilmour, Johnstone, and Hornby.......maybe Morgan and Ferguson.......all of which have another year in that age group.

    How long have the performance schools and Project Brave been in existence? We’ve got to give it time before we reap the benefits! Jack Harper wasn’t even developed in this country!😝

    Yeah I saw that, other ones to look out for are Dean Campbell and Ethan Ross at Aberdeen, Nathan Paterson and Mebude (fae Govan) and McPake at Rangers, Anthony McDonald at Hearts, just to name a few....... all either 16/17 years old. We’ve also developed Dembele but it’s still up in the air who he will end up playing international football for if he fulfils his potential.

    BUT they need to get the opportunities to play....... Hearts stopped the Celtic unbeaten run, playing a 16 year old from the start.... and he was one of the best players on the park!

    One of the main problems for a number of years now has been first team opportunities. How many of the squad that made the UEFA U19 championships final in 2006 went onto play at any decent level....... Dorrans and Steven Fletcher maybe?? And look at the current SPL the now....... one of our problem areas is up front for example...... list the teams and tell me who plays up front for them? I think only Brophy, shaw and obv griffiths get games! And Shaw is nowhere near good enough!

    Forrest had a decent first half, caused them problems down the right, but faded badly in the second half like most of the team. I would give him another chance against a lesser quality team, where he will see more of the ball in forward areas. Him and Fraser should both play in my opinion.

    This. No need to put an even more negative spin on things. I would put it more down to quality football players with better touch and awareness making the game look easier. Pogba is a prime example of this.

    It wasn’t exactly a full strength Scottish team either to be fair

    The commentators aren’t half the prophets of doom eh.... Not that we give them much to be positive about
