We have seen lee wilkie turn into cannavaro for 90 mins against holland in 03, heid caldwell turn in a goalscoring performance (And 2 shut outs) against the world's finest side, a 40 something davie weir rolling back the years to give us a decent foundation alongside mcmanus at the back in recent times, then the likes of martin, hanley and greer and mulgrew under strachan.
Where are we noo? Who have we got ? and who plays against Israel at the back?
Right now is Mckenna and Cooper the best we have or will we take one last punt on an aging mulgrew ? Do gallacher and devlin have further parts to play and is talk of steven caulker being an option realistic or the product of some pie in the sky some utopian idealism ?
In short.. who are our centre backs going to be in this, our biggest game since Italy 2007 ?
Slim pickings doesny cover it ...
