  1. I know going up doesn't mean they'll be there next season (as in Douglas' case last season) but Fleck, Cooper, McLean, Phillips, Burke, McGinn, Douglas (again), Rhodes (probably not) and Hutton are all potentially in the Premier League next season. Am i missing anyone? Wonder if the Souttar/Shinnie deals are as likely if Derby are promoted.
  2. And John Souttar being linked to Derby. If he does go there along with Shinnie (which seems favourite) then there's a large pool of Scots at the top end of the Championship and we should have more Scots in the EPL next season.
  3. Just seen reports that Hoffenheim are interested in Celtic's Liam Morrison. Doesn't work for everyone (Burke) but it's positive that Bundesliga teams are taking notice of Scottish youngsters. any reports on him?
  4. In the main I'm disappointed by this move. Staying at Motherwell for at least another year would surely be a huge benefit to him. From a domestic football point of view it's sad that a young team isn't able to develop together before they're cherry-picked. Only positive is that Gerrard might actually want to play Scots in his team. It was always a hope that a short-term plan hid a longer aim to develop youth even if that's youth that's bought in. Certainly the Rangers youngsters are getting rave reviews.
  5. Couple more quotes from the BBC live feed: Robbie Savage "Scott McTominay has kept going again tonight. Lionel Messi is teasing Paul Pogba and he has been overrun again." Man Utd fan "McTominay is 10 times the player Pogba is. Imagine if Pogba worked half as hard as him?" Fraser, Robertson, Tierney, Forrest and now McTominay. A half decent manager could make the basis of a good team out of that.
  6. Just idle thinking but imagine Fraser and Tierney both playing on the left for Arsenal. They've seemed interested in both so it's not impossible.
  7. Sorry, posted this in the wrong thread before.
  8. I was always opposed to playing him at right back but now I think we have no option. I think with it we abandon ideas of a back 3. I don't care what the doommongers say, we have a good young team.
  9. I agree. I think McGinn and McTominay would be great together. 4 goals in the last 6 for McGinn and the momentum Villa have suggest he may well be playing in the EPL next season. Would like to see him playing against better opposition each week.
  10. I think that we have no choice right now. Two Champions League 'regulars' in the team is really positive and hopefully increase next year!
  11. A big who cares about a player getting huge plaudits and driving his team towards promotion to the EPL? Just Google his name and read the articles about him. The Daily Star (And I am sorry to quote them) have an article today saying that Villa owe their promotion push to him more than to Grealish or Abraham. Although my argument might be completely undermined by quoting the Daily Star!
  12. Not sure I agree. Tierney was 18, McKenna 21, Souttar 21, Burke 18, McTominay 21, McBurnie 21. Ok, not exactly loads of teenagers but still young. The real youngsters (under 20) like Gilmour and Hornby haven't played first team football and, sadly, when younger lads do play they're jumped on.

    New kit

    Now that's a fantastic idea. There's that Italian team that had images of cured meat across their shirts. We could have Tunnocks in shadow across the whole kit.
