Your hate of Adams is embarrassing. TA Troll

McBurnie did well. He had a few good touches and lay offs. He was better than Dykes, who tries, but is technically limited. Adams, apart from his goal, was shocking and did nothing all night. The

Nobody unless they are on the wind up can think McBurnie is a better option than Adams.

Frustration is the main feeling from these three games. Austria, I thought, were disappointing against us. Those dropped points may come back to haunt us. And if we hadn't decided to go AWOL in the first half against Israel the result could have been the one we wanted and needed. Okay we are in second spot now but it could have been far healthier but suppose it could have been worse too.

That's am 8 goal swing against Austria. could be worth the equivalent half a point as long as we don't do anything daft like lose 6-0 to Denmark

Genuinely can't see a Steve Clarke side losing 6-0 against anyone

I think the formation is working. When we have the ball we effectively have 1 defender. 

What we are really lacking id a centre mid who can slot a pass through the lines. Much like Gilmour can do. McGreggor and McLean will always play the safe pass out wide, and not quickly at that.

That would be McTominay or McGinn surely ?

This is definitely a good Scotland squad, but we were slow starting against Austria and poor for the most part against Israel. If we want to qualify or at least improve in ranking and move up pots we need to be more consistent and play to our potential 

Agree. We need to be able to link up passes against stronger teams , whilst it is great to see a few goals tonight we struggle to play slick football against tougher opposition,  and end up nowhere. 
 Hopefully though the goals tonight will have boosted the confidence,  and mentally its good to finish the 3 games on a high.

Could be.

God result for Macedonia in Duisburg - bet we get Germany in the play-offs!

Not his biggest fan but I though Maclean was decent tonight. Robertson too played well. McTominay makes a big difference to us at the back. But I still want him in midfield. Hanley didn’t do anything wrong but I still prefer Gallagher in there if fit and available. We did look quite small at set pieces against the Faroes tonight.

Obviously Tierney and McGinn being the standouts, hard to choose my MotM between them. I’d probably go with Tierney, involved in just about everything good from Scotland tonight

Think Clarke sees him as a steady player in midfield. Could maybe have done with him in Israel game on reflection
