  1. Did you watch? Played a full 90 minutes. Stats suggest Verona got a pasting though although hard to judge when down to 10 men.
  2. I make it 14 in the EPL that are eligible (retired or not). Gilmour shouldn't be on that list otherwise you'd have Hornby and others. McAvoy???
  3. Such a pity Robertson and Tierney couldn't play against each other this evening.
  4. No, I'm pretty sure he was highly regarded by Man Utd.
  5. What's happening with Ethan Hamilton? He's just gone on loan again hasn't he? Thought he was highly regarded.
  6. Really pleased to see Hickey in there. Think he's a cracking talent. Also intrigues to see Leonard get a call up. Don't think I've heard him mentioned since he left Hearts which was a strange one.
  7. Not entirely fair. 😁 Yes, last season was disappointing but some went out on loan and this season the number of youngsters has increased again. A long way off perfect but improving.
  8. His Twitter page still has him in a Scotland group photo so something to keep an eye on.
  9. Young Hickey's a good player. Gives me hope for that problematic left back position.
  10. What the hell's happened to Hastie?
  11. Had heard that. Bit unusual. 1. The expected offer, as I understand it, was quite low. Sure Celtic would not accept below £20 million 2. Forrest has already stated he wants to stay at Celtic for the rest of his career 3. Zenit are a big club but his situation wouldn't be very different to Celtic. Still, good to see there's interest.
  12. I know it's been mentioned but Fletcher is getting very positive reviews at Wednesday. Was looking through their fans forum for info on Bates and came across this: https://www.owlstalk.co.uk/forums/topic/284168-steven-fletcher/
  13. Fed up of Chripper's constant negativity. Think others value our players more than he does. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-transfer-news/leicesters-last-gasp-callum-mcgregor-18870070
  14. I hadn't expected that. It's really exciting to see young Scots move abroad. As above for ones to follow. Ferguson, Henderson and Turnbull are the young lads in Scotland that I'm really keen to watch. In England I'm hoping that Hornby, Hamilton and Gilmour get loan moves and I'll really follow them closely. But Tierney, if he goes to Arsenal, will be the o e I'd be absolutely desperate to succeed
  15. I've thought the same thing. I really hoped he'd move up so we can get a chance to really see what he can do. That said, if we get injuries again and he maintains this form then it's possible. What's the current order? 1. Griffiths 2. McBurnie 3. Naismith 4. Brophy 5. Fletcher 6. Stewart/Harper/McNulty/Burke....
  16. He may be but He's our best Kak.
  17. Is that 4 Scottish youth players they've bought this simmer? Mair, Fitzpatrick, Gilmour (shipped out on loan) and McAleer. On top of their attempt to sign Turnbull. Interesting.
  18. Cracker of a goal by McGinn against Charlton (not sure how to post twitter post but hope the link works) https://mobile.twitter.com/AVFCOfficial/status/1155143038525739008?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fd-242574657157135136.ampproject.net%2F1907161745080%2Fframe.html
  19. Does anyone know if Armstrong's been featuring in Southampton's pre season games? Saw a very short clip of their defeat of Preston and the third goal looked to be set up by him.
  20. How's Morgan been getting on? Very early in the season but it's very positive sign.
  21. Even for the modern game £15 million being rejected is extraordinary.
  22. I am starting to think Tierney will be at Celtic for another season
  23. I think that's it, it's the numbers that are coming through that's the exciting part.
  24. There's plenty of examples of young players who don't achieve after promising so much but it is fantastic to see the numbers of these exciting players coming through. Kids linked to Bayern and Roma. Youngsters playing with confidence in top teams.....
