After a mixed double header of friendlies I think there is more cause for optimism than not. Okay a win and a defeat was mixed return but when you take into account we have perhaps unearthed a couple of youngsters ready for the centre of defence in the form of McKenna and Hendry plus other youngsters looking like they are ready to cement a place in our side then there is hope. Look at the team churned out against Hungary and only Mulgrew and McGregor fall into the veteran category. Aside from them we fielded a team aged mostly in their early 20s in the form of Robertson, Hendry, McKenna, McGinn, Forrest, McGregor and Fraser whilst Armstrong and Phillips aren't exactly old crocks either. Also off the bench came more youngsters in the form of McBurnie and Christie with the likes of McTominay and Jamie Murphy also involved in the double header. Those players make a firm basis for our team for the next few years - so yes there is reason for optimism.
