  1. Yesterday an advert appeared on Facebook for the new training wear but when you clicked the link it was an error on the JD site. Can't find it anywhere so I'm guessing it was a mistake. Anybody know?
  2. I totally agree. Am certainly not getting carried away. We just have some quality players in a few positions. Proudscot is absolutely right to say that's balanced out by being pretty poor elsewhere.
  3. They absolutely are. Very different and it's not saying McTominay is the class of DeBruyne but that McTominay is very highly regarded. McTominay, McGinn, Robertson, Tierney and Christie. 5 genuinely high quality players. Fraser, Forrest and McGregor on their day as well. All feels so close and yet.....
  4. When Shearer asks who will decide the Manchester derby, DeBruyne or McTominay, surely it's time to accept he should be first on our team sheet too? https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50673053
  5. Good article in The Guardian about him: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/football/2019/nov/29/oliver-burke-i-feel-like-a-proper-footballer-again-really-good-in-myself I'm not expecting him to turn into the new Bale but I think it'll click for him one day.
  6. Which means (I think) that Feyenoord have just 1 less Scot (that's not retired) in their match day squad than Rangers
  7. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.footballinsider247.com/ibrox-exclusive-liverpool-set-sights-on-two-rangers-rising-stars/amp/ This article suggests that Liverpool are after King and Nathan Patterson. Has anyone seen much of Patterson? Googling indicates that he's expected to make the first team soon. As a Right Back!
  8. I think I'd go for McTominay alongside Jack. Forrest and Christie wide (with Fraser competing with Forrest for a place) and McGinn supporting the striker. To think, we can have McGregor, Arstrong, Fleck and McLean on the bench is extremely positive.
  9. The other week I got to see Liverpool at Villa park and the thing that struck me most was that Robbo and Alexander-Arnold didn't warm up with the Centre Backs, they warmed up with the strikers! Robbo on one side Trent A-A on the other and Mane, Salah and Firminho in the middle. It wasn't just crossing, it included shooting. The key to utilising Robertson for Scotland is to allow him to do that against weaker opposition like Taylor and Palmer did on Tuesday and then more restrained in others. But until we have world class centre backs he's going to have to do a lot more of the latter The question is then whether he's the best man for those occasions.
  10. Just wondered if you're standing by this?
  11. Palmer's done OK. Happy with him as our RB for the present.
  12. What is the rule about uncontestable bounce up?
  13. Not sure I completely agree with all the pessimism tonight. They've had very few chances and, despite the fact McKenna backed off, scored a beauty. We've had the vast majority of the possession and clear chances for Jack, Naismith, Forrest and McGinn. Ok, Kazakhstan are a team we should beat and we should be creating more but I don't buy the complete gloom
  14. After each goal you can see him talking to players. It's the same at Hearts. Always focusing on supporting the other players, especially the young ones like Hickey.
