ETA - I am non-plussed re Che Adams. Will he be a positive addition to the squad - undoubtedly (and even more so if he had directly replaced McBurnie). As for his allegiances and commitment, well we can base that on his performances and take from there. Overall, the squad remains pretty much "traditionally" Scottish including the keich that we regularly produce and we are no where near those countries (inc those closer to home) who continue to use the grandmother rule almost routinely rather than exceptionally.

Well you arent a Scotland fan then. End of.  You are correct. Many people will hold the same view as you on Armstrong and McAllister. Those people are also not fans. Unforgiveable would be s

Adams is 24. I believe neurologists think that the brain doesn't fully develop until that age. And that is the scientific explanation for why he has done the right thing in opting for the dark blue of

He hasn’t decided he is Scottish. He qualifies as Scottish (and qualified as soon as he was born) and it seems like he wants to play for us according to reports. And is clearly well within the rules.

Yeah. It's quite clear now that you were just trying to act the big man, score points and play to the gallery.

PM me and we can discuss it further. 

I have no interest in pm'ing you as you are an utter crackpot.

I was just helping you understand something that appeared quite straightforward to me and  I assume other posters, given you had escalated to being abusive. No horse in this race but if you think I am an alter ego of someone, I think you're probably spending a wee bit too much time on here....

The guys had that many profiles on here so I wouldn't know. If he would just stick to 1 then there would be no reason to question his honesty.

anyway Che Adams.....who have Southampton got on Saturday and is he likely to start? Is he keeping the Irish guy out the team (forget his name - he doesn't score that often but always think he is quite decent). 

You're thinking of Shane Long? Southampton have loaned him to Bournemouth for the 2nd half of the season.

 

As it happens, Southampton are playing Bournemouth away this weekend (FA Cup).

With Danny Ings and Theo Walcott both injured, I'm sure Che Adams will start.

As for the 'sad' reaction to this post then yes it is sad that Scotland fans put such low stock from what they expect from players who represent Scotland. I never thought I'd see the day people were pleased and excited that someone point blank rejects chances to represent Scotland THREE times to THREE different managers and only changes his mind when the Euros are on the horizon.

Well said fella.It isn't only the players that were better in the past.A truly dreadful decision by Clarke.Can't believe any SCOTLAND fan can be happy with this.

that's him - went to look him up and then got side-tracked. I recall one game he started for Southampton (before going out on loan as you have now confirmed), the commentator said he hadn't scored since XXXX which was like 18 months or something. 

Not to go off tangent but I always liked Shane Long whenever I saw him play. Was surprised by his goal scoring record but he seemed to have plenty of speed and endeavour and always thought he was quite a clever player. 

Will watch Adams this weekend. Now he has been called up he will utterly shite.

I really do struggle to grasp why people are gleeful about somebody who has rejected us THREE times. How people cannot see through his motives for his change of mind is beyond me.

I don't think anyone is gleeful or excited. I can only speak for myself. I don't really like the grandparebt rule but Adams deserves the chance to show whether he is committed and his heart is in it. We Will know soon enough

Some people on here got their knickers in a twist over James Morrison being called up because he had youth caps for England, yet in the end he played nearly 50 times for Scotland and showed more commitment to the team than some players who were born and raised here.

If Adams can show a similar attitude as Morrison he's more than welcome, as far as I'm concerned.  👍

that's my take on it. It is not as if we ie the Scottish team are the upholders of all that is whole and pure in the international game. Every other team takes advantage of it and seeks out players that will benefit them who qualify under the grandparent rule. Why should we be any different particularly when we are weak in the striking department? 

I wouldn't like or perhaps more accurate, I wouldn't warm to or connect to a team largely made up of players who are chosen through the grandparent rule - particularly if they have turned down chances before to play for Scotland or haven't come through the u18s/u21s etc. But a few smattering of the players about the squad is consistent with almost every other international team and shouldn't impact on squad unity or the support of the fans.

Huge difference. I don't recall Morrison rejecting us three times. And then only changing his mind once we had qualified for something.

For once a non scots call up does seem someone who has got a few goals recently and he has looked okay when I have seen him.

Whether he is international quality that is another question , but I do suspect he is an upgrade on both mcburnie and dykes .

Just out of interest do any of the posters who are claiming Adams turned us down 3 times have any direct quotes of this actually being the case?

Clarke mentioned McLeish approaching him once and him saying he wasn’t ready to commit.

I don't recall Adams rejecting us three times either. I remember him saying he didn't want to make a decision on his international future at that stage, or words to that effect, but that isn't a rejection.

McTominay did the same which the anti Adams brigade are choosing to forget.

Indeed he did, I'd forgotten about that. 👍

I also remember there were quotes from Lyndon Dykes before he was called up noting that if he had the choice he’d choose Australia. He obviously changed his mind, seems we were lucky we called him up at the right time.
