  1. We were told were told on plane home that both Forest and Fraser wouldn't last 90minutes, must have picked up small knocks against Cyprus. Good move to rest McTonninay against Cyprus ,apart from few mins at the end . He was always going to play the full game against Belgium and he did tire badly towards the end . Good management of the player, but I do agree with you that generally McTomminay should start .
  2. Just back from Belgium, there has been a big change in the atmosphere since the last game out in San Marino . Everyone I spoke to seemed to have great faith in Steve Clarke turning it round . Considering the fact Belgium are on a different planet ,and our weakened team , we all thought the players did fine . A good shape to the team ,they all seemed to know what their role was ,and fewer errors , yes the goal on halftime was a sickener and I know Belgium missed a few . On last nights evidence we probably have a 40% chance of qualification through the playoffs in March, whereas if they had kept McLeish on the chance of qualification was zero . Not seen the highlights yet but from our vantage point Fraser, McTominnay,McLean look good for the future , Marshall some cracking saves but his distribution is awful. Pretty confident that better times lie ahead .
  3. Give Steve Clark the job with a start when the season ends .
  4. Mystified ,why do we need MacKay as a temporary manager? Its almost the end of the season so a permanent appointment of someone like Clark would cause minimal disruption to their club . Having read Malkys comments that got him kicked out of Cardiff, there is no way he can be given such a high profile position even if it is temporary . It would be a National embarrassment .
  5. I think you guys are right about Maxwell, he seems totally indecisive . Eck has proved that he is not up to the job , the players don't want to play for him and the fans won't turn out while he is running the team . Ian Maxwell must put Eck out of his misery so that we can book our buses and planes to the Cyprus home game and Brussels away . Nobody here is interested in going if Eck is still in charge .
  6. Let's get back to the point , Eck has been a total failure this time round and has to get the heave before it's too late.
  7. Dont know anything about Ian Maxwell but he seems as indecisive as the rest of the bungling Blazers on the SFA board . Big Eck has been a total failure and has lost the backing of 99% of the TA yet he still has the support of Alan McRae ? Eck must go now to give someone else a chance to sort out the mess before we hit the playoffs .
  8. Alec McLeish might be "a very nice bloke" ,but he is no longer a half decent football manager . For 10 grand a week he has managed to make some pretty good players look like they wouldn't get a game in the local pub league team . If they keep him on to the summer we can write off the playoffs , it has been a downward spiral since his arrival .
  9. A good summary Burnie, agree fully .
  10. No smoke without fire , looks like Eck is on his way out . So the 2 clowns who got us into this mess, McRae and Pettrie, have to go as well . So who's left on the board to oversee the appointment of a new manager , rent a mouth Mulraney and Neil Doncaster ( the Chris Grayling of Scottish football). The prospects don't look good !
  11. You're probably right, been going for years but that's me finished till Big Eck goes, and I'm not alone quite a few of the fans we met said we won't be back .
  12. Just back from San Marino, just about had enough of the shambles surrounding the Scottish national team . The atmosphere at the game was the worst I have experienced . We were lucky there was no violence that I saw because the mood was toxic . I saw fans heading for the exit at half time.I actually felt sorry for the team because they have a manager with no obvious tactics , formation or man magement skills , 11 individuals were on the park with not a clue what they were meant to be doing, but that's typical of Ecks reign, the players don't want to play for him. Israel away 1 up at half time but 5 at the back not working Eck does nothing till we are 2 1 down,totally indecisive. Israel at Hampden we are 3. 1 up but Armstrong and Fletcher are knackered again Eck does nothing until we lose a goal , lucky to get away with it. The man is totally inept , but we knew that before he was appointed by McRae and Pettrie.As for McRae what a buffoon, what kind of idiot stands up at a press conference and announces he is appointing his mate, who has not had a proper job for years, on £500,000 a year ,when we could have got him for £100000. Now we can't afford to sack him . Who takes over from McRae in the summer ,Rod Petrie a man who took Hibs to C hampionship oblivion then hid away as Leanne Dempster picked up the pieces . And don't get me started on the super incompetent Doncaster , has he not done enough damage to the image of the SPFL, why invite another incompetent into the SFA? Big Eck has to go before Cyprus ,otherwise the stadium will be empty, but there must be a clear out of the Blazers who have been wined and dined and flown 1st class to their 5star hotels all at our expense . SACK THE BOARD !
  13. Big Eck nice guy but I still feel he has lost it . You didn't need to pay a guy £400000 a year to pick that team or formation , even McRae and Pettrie could have picked it . Everyone on this board said that 3 at the back didn't work , and they were all within one player of picking the team which took the field against Albania. Eck is now claiming that he had that team and formation in mind all the time, no chance! His indecision almost cost us against Israel, after 65 minutes it was obvious that Armstrong and Fletcher were running on empty. When the subs were eventually ready McGregor delayed the kick out to let them on , Eck held the subs back and Israel scored. Wish we had Shinnie on earlier . Hope I am wrong , but honestly can't see us doing much in the Euro qualifications with Eck in charge , but then again didn't Germany win them with Bertie Vogts as manager ?
  14. With a full squad I don't think the players we have got are too bad , it's just that Eck and his management team seem to have switche them off with some bizarre formations and statements to the press. Even your keen guys like Tierney and Robertson look bemused on the park.
