  1. In the last match before the WC, Cochrane should have been sent off for a shocker of a tackle on Nicky Devlin and now he's going in and kicking guys in a friendly? The boy needs to cool his nugget. I remember Alan Main being sent off in a friendly for Livi and that meant he was suspended for the first game of the season. Roddy McKenzie replaced him for that match and never lost the jersey. Will Cochrane be suspended for the next 3 games due to being a straight red for violent conduct?

    This Diakhaby kid looks like quite the mercurial talent. If it is attitude that is the issue we have seen that Davie can work that out of players. Considering the fees paid for him he obviously has shown some great promise in his youth years. We are well on our way to having a very exciting squad of players with great depth. 

    Wouldn't mind if we took a punt on him and offset his wages by patching Isma. Would still leave us with Anderson, Nouble, Guthrie and, to a lesser extent, Shinnie as options to lead the line. All of whom have contributed more than Isma

  3. In addition to the ones already mentioned,


    Juranovic of Celtic and Barasic of the rangers in the Croatia squad.

    New Celtic recruit Johnson in the Canada team.

    Van Dijk and Frimpong for Netherlands both played for Celtic

    Danny Ward was at Aberdeen is representing Wales as is Aaron Ramsey who, it seems, has carried his rangers form into the world cup.Wales also have Dylan Levitt of Dundee United

    I doubt Hamilton will go with Ivan always a possibility to leave 

    Omeonga and Longridge are possible. The first has been injury prone and hasn’t had much impact this season and with him unlikely to sign on he could be one to cash in on.

    Longridge is probably 3rd choice LB and doesn’t offer the same options as Penrice.

    Goncalves has been a letdown, however he’s also offered more than Soto and Chuckwumenka did. With Anderson back he’s still got a chance of being a good backup.

    I do like the idea of another winger, if we play Nouble and Bahamboula from the start we definitely lack a wide attacking option from the bench   

    Nah, I'd rather have Soto than Goncalves....Soto may have been a bit of a headless chicken but he made the effort of running and I actually remember him with the ball at his feet. I don't think I can recall seeing Goncalves do anything productive with the ball other than miss a couple of sitters

    Someone suggested him in the next Rangers manager thread. No job is bigger than that!

    Seriously though, from a financial point of view I'm pretty sure the gig he has now is a big one.

    You get the impression that he's comfortable in international management and most big (i.e. European) nations will want a manager with either strong ties to the country or top club football experience. I don't think he's missing out on top jobs because people think he's not a good manager.

    We're probably on the same page on this one.

    In fairness, being suggested for the rangers job puts him in the same bracket as David Martindale. We both agree that he's a fantastic manager though and he's definitely suited to international management. Would love to see him in a top job though because the performances he gets out of his players for Saudi Arabia, Zambia etc are always brilliant

    Mexico really need to be having a go at Argentina tonight then eh? And clearly the Argies need to have a go even more, so that should make for an interesting game. First of the favourites to be forced into showing us what they are made of when under pressure.

    i was thinking this too...this result really puts the pressure on Argentina in what is already a tricky game (on paper) against Mexico

    How have the Saudis not scored here ffs emoji28.png
    What a great team to watch. High line and going for it, superb stuff.

    They are a good watch and a far cry from the comedy Saudi outfits of the past. They go to ground far too easily for my liking though.

    Herve Renard has always been an underrated manager IMO. Was hoping he'd have been on the list for the Scotland job

    Did one the other day. Pretty decent. 

    I'm very much a fan of current experienced players (who have a bit of personality and decent media training) doing co-comms. Their opinions on the game are up to date and they always seem to have a bit more insight into how teams want to play. Certainly beats the likes of Danny Murphy and Steve McManaman

  9. As they should be doing, for such an utterly ridiculous decision. This clown should have his licence removed at the end of the game and never heard from again - 'oh but VAR helped him out' is no excuse for total incompetence.
    They certainly should be acting like that. The captain should be speaking to the ref, not 5 or 6 Iranian players effectively squaring up to him. The decision was wrong...the way they acted was also wrong
  10. Darts on ITV4 for anyone finding this as Turgid as me
    I'm really enjoying the game...plenty of action, end to end at times, posts being smacked, goals disallowed and a sending off. Surprised more of the Iranians weren't booked for getting in the ref's face ..while they were correct in that it should be a red, they were screaming at him, inches from his face...a few were even pushing him around
