  1. I really hope that Mikey Johnston comes through and gets a call up by the next Nations League, its these games that we should be trying new players and systems etc. Also, what has happened to the Karlan Grant link to being called up, it's gone quiet regarding that?
  2. Marshall (he's proved himself this past double header) McCrorie or Fredericks McKenna Bates (young centre back pairing) Tierney Snodgrass McGinn Armstrong Turnbull (not sure his position but he deserves a shot, if he is a Cm then put him there and Fraser on the wing) Christie Griffiths.
  3. Marc Wilmots or Shaun Maloney for me but hopefully in about 4-5yrs as Clarke needs at least that, unless a shock defeat to a minnow is suffered.
  4. Some Instagram user called Caleyhq is linking us with a French midfielder from Oldham, Ousmane Fane. They also say Coll could be Dingwall bound !
  5. Stolen from the transfer thread lol. So far we’ve been linked with Kallum Higginbotham, Anton Dowds, Nicky Cadden, James Vincent and James Craigan apparently.
  6. Now that we know who the manager is, now its time to speculate on who his assistant and coaches will be :). I think for assistant, the likely name that will be mentioned is Alex Dyer who assisted him at Kilmarnock. I have also noticed that Darren Fletcher has been mentioned by a few on here but imho, that's unlikely as he's being touted as a possible Director of Football at Manchester United. Another possible assistant is Kevin Keen who assisted Steve Clarke at Reading and WBA so, I am intrigued to see who he brings in.
  7. Are you just going to dismiss every manager touted!!? Wilmots would be a great appointment for us, especially if he adds a Scot to his coaching team. Its ridiculous how every manager gets dismissed due to "being a failure" elsewhere, ffs, we had MCLEISH who is worse than Bruce Arena and Marc Wilmots combined!!
  8. Marc Wilmots under consideration so, surely he will become the new favourite soon because his pedigree is better than Bruce Arena. In fact, if he's on the shortlist as The Sun report then, he must be favourite ahead of Steve Clarke or second favourite just behind Steve. I would be happy with Marc Wilmots but his lack of English would be a worry.
  9. I am going to try and defend David Moyes here but I doubt it will be enough to change your opinion on him lol. At Preston and Everton, he was very successful so on both occasions he deserved the step up and, tbh, if SIR ALEX recommended him to Utd, that tells its own story, he must have been doing something right. I think maybe he left Goodison to early though, maybe he should have stayed another couple of seasons there then go to Man U. Imho, at Real Sociedad, he wasn't really given much time but I think he maybe regrets taking that job. At West Ham, he saved them from the drop which was a success imho so I believe he should have been given the next season too, if things were not going well and WHU were in another relegation dogfight then resign. And Sunderland, the least said about that the better but nearly everyone before him struggled there and even now, Jack Ross is living on borrowed time (do not be surprised if he is sacked in the next few days). That job is a poisoned chalice. So all in all, if we get the competent Moyes of his Everton or Preston days, we should be fine.
  10. I would be happy with Bruce Arena as long as he appointed a Scottish coach or assistant to help him with knowledge of the Scottish game etc. Imho, he's better than Sven Goran Eriksson, Dick Advocaat or Avram Grant, all of who have been mentioned in the last week. Anyway, BBC reporting that an appointment is imminent (a fortnight mentioned on their Twitter account) so that rules out Derek McInnes, Steve Clarke or Jack Ross as they'll all be under contract. So, for me it is going to be either David Moyes or Bruce Arena.
  11. I seen yesterday in The Sunday Mail that Bruce Arena is in contention and that Ian Maxwell will take his credentials seriously so, he'd be my foreign choice along with Darren Fletcher as assistant :). I still think the only Scottish candidate that can be appointed is Steve Clarke but, I think it's likely to be David Moyes as he was at Celtic v Kilmarnock and Rangers v Aberdeen plus one other at the weekend. I am not sure if I would be happy with him though because his record is mixed, at PNE and Everton he was very successful, at Utd and Sunderland he was nothing sort of dreadful but, to be fair to him, Sir Alex was a tough act to follow at Utd and Sunderland is a poisoned chalice, even Jack Ross is discovering that just now. And at Sociedad, I believe he wasn't given enough time to get things right, and finally, at WHU he was average but did keep them up.
  12. What? He's basically saying what was reported in The Sun and Scotsman last Friday which is that Mr Useless met Ian Maxwell at London for crunch talks on his future and must now wait for the outcome which could be as late as next Thursday (18 April) when the SFA board meet again. https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/teams/scotland/scotland-manager-alex-mcleish-at-hampden-for-euro-debrief-1-4902220
  13. https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/sport/football/4079927/scotland-alex-mcleish-fate-talks-sfa/
  14. He has agreed terms with Derry so we missed out. Any more links other than Storer, Quitongo, Hendry (St J) or Scougall?
