    We beat Ayr and I think McCall himself would admit that the Jags are nowhere near as good as Ayr at this point. Their defence are no great shakes and their goalie is suspect. They have good players that can hurt if we do not approach the game properly. It won't be easy but 1-0 will do as it did against Ayr

    Exactly my thoughts HF. Not sure who it should be, but in IMO we need one of them to play CF not be running all over the park.

    Funny enough my thoughts are our midfield is not good enough (off the ball ) and that’s why he opts for extra man .

    It's not a big deal for me either mate. I moved this thread to the general football section as it was getting a bit tetchy and it's not worth falling out over something like this.

    Just catching up with the forum for the first time in days. Without wishing to offend anyone who's still into it, i personally could not give a flying fk about the national team and have felt like this for years now. 1990s and 2000s it was different but completely lost interest the last 10 years or so. Wouldn't watch them it they were playing in my backies. Most people I know feel the same. Over that period, haven't had a clue who several of the players who get picked and started are. Only Scotland games I've went out my way to watch the last several years and felt anything about...

    Finn Not In U19 Scotland Squad?

    It’s because he does not play for Celtic or Rangers, can’t be on ability as he’s the only one playing regular first team football.

    I think the result at Tannadice has confirmed that we need the extra body in midfield rather than upfront. The Defenders along with the GK are simply not good enough and by packing the midfield it gives them further protection.

    If we are playing one up front it should be Johnson, for me he is the best finisher we have, play him through the middle, don't let him drift out wide to get the ball and he will reward us with goals
  12. Harold Finch

    Finn Not In U19 Scotland Squad?

    I'm not that bothered that he's not in the squad, there is a real danger that because of the rate of his development Finn will be overplayed this season, there will be plenty full caps in Finn's future if he keeps progressing the way he is. We need him more than Scotland do, I would rather he was fresh for the Partick game instead of being part of the U19 team against Germany.

    Finn Not In U19 Scotland Squad?

    He'll maybe make the next under 18s squad.
  14. Back in the day, Scotland had squads filled with players playing in England, but we have to remember that the likes of Ardiles and Villa at Spurs and Thijssen (spelling?) and Muhren at Ipswich were very much the exception back then. The top flight in England, which was basically dominating Europe in the late 70s were filled with home international players. Hence these guys were playing against the best in the continent in high pressure games every season and a whole host of Scottish players (from memory Allan Evans, John McGovern (who was never capped?), John Robertson, Greame Souness, Kenny Dalglish, Stevie Nicol etc etc won European Cups and that's...

    Fair enough mate. It's not a big enough a deal for me - either whether he's the right guy, or who actually plays for Scotland - to get too embroiled in the discussion. However, I will clarify that I certainly don't have a favourite dab and I doubt anyone else on here does either.

    I don't think there is any need to hate a player just because he wears tangerine but some folk seem to want to blow smoke up his a**e and I'm sure there are better places to praise your favourite dab. He might well have learned his lessons. Time will tell I suppose. Fletcher, Burke, Brophy and Stewart have delivered at a higher level than Shankland so I would have thought they'd be better options as we try to reach the Euros through the play-offs.

    Surely it's possible for a young(ish) lad to learn from his mistakes and adjust his attitude? Unfortunately most of out squad isn't international class and he isn't out of place alongside the players Clarke has at his disposal. I get that we're al meant to 'hate' him because he's a DAB but I genuinely can't see who Clarke was meant to pick instead of him.
  19. Cobra

    Scotland

    Great player to have at Scottish Championship level but he's not international class and couldn't get a League One club down south to offer him a deal in the summer. Derek McInnes, Jim Duffy and Jack Ross have all been unhappy with his attitude so I'd be surprised if he kicks on and reaches a significantly higher level.

    Wrong thread.
  21. Huggs66

    Dundee V Partick

    BCG, IMO he needs a couple of breaks and to feed off the scraps hence my earlier comment of playing Johnson along side, it should give him a little more space and it will come.
  22. Huggs66

    Scotland

    Nobody is questioning his ability, he is a decent player, unfortunately as has been reported before, he gets too far ahead of himself and this is when the billy big boots attitude creeps in. FFS it was enough for Sunderland not to sign him.
  23. Billy Campbell's Ghost

    Finn Not In U19 Scotland Squad?

    Playing Germany tomorrow live on BBC Scot. It appears he is not in the squad after apparently excelling as a sub in last friendly. Rested or injured or out of favour? Anyone know? McPake is still in squad.
  24. J_Kitamirike

    Scotland

    Shankland is a good player , don't let your hatred of the DABS get in the way. We would all love him at Dens. His talent and goal scoring record speaks for itself. Some of our fans are predictable in their denial and constant belittling of him as a player. I expect a backlash or clutching at straws attempt to prove how I'm wrong with my comments but it's true.
  25. Wattie Rojas

    Dundee V Partick

    I'd try Nelson where gowser played last time out. He has the pace to run from deep to support hemmings and the workrate to get back and help the midfield.
  26. Billy Campbell's Ghost

    Dundee V Partick

    Surely Hemmings has to be up to speed/fitness by Oct? I just dont think he is getting the service. He has hardly missed any easy chances has he, or any at all?
  27. TheDarkBlues

    Scotland

    Yeah, lets face it, it was only San Marino and not exactly world class opposition wasn't it!
  28. BCram

    Scotland

    I think he needs to play in all the remaining games for Scotland to give us a better idea of his ability. If he scores goals then good luck to him. As has been said before selling your best players does not always help to achieve the aspirations of your supporters and owners. there are other players who help strikers to score goals and the loss of them can be equally disastrous.
