  1. I got into these videos as well recently and it's refreshing to see a well-researched and well-balanced review of so many football topics. Not just some papers or BBC trying to punt headlines.
  2. Tremendous. Probably second best female Scotland player behind Caroline Weir
  3. I'll give you that. I'm not sure if anyone has seen McBurnie being worth of a call up, nevermind a start, nevermind a 20mil transfer fee. I understand with Dykes we were seeing who he was going to play for internationally, and I feel we'd be taking him much more seriously if he wasn't playing for Livingston is all. I wouldn't have either of them starting for us in any circumstances
  4. To be fair I think McBurnie is actually beyond rotten at this point. Dykes looks a real physical threat and danger to defenders. But I've accepted my opinion on football players is null and void versus the professional gaffers nowadays
  5. Marshall Palmer Gallagher McKenna Taylor Jack McGregor McGinn Christie Shankland Forrest Ideally we could play this like a 4-3-3 with 3 centre-mids that can keep a hold of the ball to keep us up the park. Hopefully to Christ we don't start McBurnie as imo he's a complete passenger. Don;t mind Naismith as a replacement level striker up top. As long as the midfielders are positionally aware enough to help the back 4 when we lose the ball then we could be ok. Lately we've been far too easy to break away against it's been hard to watch at times. Also wouldn't mind someone like an Armstrong in there who can drive with the ball from deep. If Jack doesn't start given the form he's in then he's never likely to start and no point constantly calling him up.
  6. Aye good point, my eyes must be painted on
  7. You know this came out about 4 years ago
  8. Given our striker shambles at the minute I feel like if Che Adams ever was interested in playing for us it would have happened by now
  9. https://kassiesa.home.xs4all.nl/bert/uefa/data/method5/crank2020.html After last night Scotland up to 16th - Cyprus up to 15th Looking at the link I think this might be right. 13th place currently has 5 teams, and Switzerland and Greece look like they were given 5 teams but now dropping to 20th and 17th, presumably they started the season 14th and 15th. Cyprus are within touching distance and have only 1 team left in Europe. Unfortunately APOEL Nicosia have a very kind group draw and I would expect them to progress. Rangers in a strong position but still not job done for 2 teams in the knockouts - which would be the first time since 2007 we've had 2 teams in Europe past Christmas btw
  10. On the plus side the striped pattern will help hide the various alcohol and sweat stains suffered over the course of an away trip!
  11. If anyone in this day an age thinks players on an EPL or world stage have any say whatsoever in their media and online appearance, then I invite them to watch the screeds of interviews on Match of The Day of dozens of professionals all saying the same thing or at least having the same structured answers to every question. Clubs and corporates have micromanaged the soul out of global football I'm afraid. Not too much to read into the bio. That said, his exclusion is a bitter pill to swallow, exacerbated by the complete certainty that he will play at least 1 of Arsenal's upcoming 2 matches before the break. Mark my words
  12. Do we have an exact pick up point in place for this one yet?
  13. Tierney is officially becoming the Jordan Rossiter of international football.
  14. Looks like Naismith replacing Russell. I don't particularly rate either Russell or Phillips but they do give us something a bit different than Naismith who's a pretty standard centre forward (past his best). Elsewhere in the striker debate, I still struggle to see what McBurnie has done at any juncture whether domestically or internationally to warrant the call ups. I wouldn't be surprised if he's the first striking option always selected. It's going to take some serious bottle to leave out someone playing (off the bench) in the Premier League who cost £20m, but let's be frank the consensus is that he's absolutely woeful.
  15. I wouldn't be against that. The last Russia game in particular showed just how off the pace he is at international level. Unless there's behind the scenes benefits of having him there, I don't see why he should be included.
