I really don't see how or why Nicholas still gets a job in punditry. He talks utter shite, even when he does manage to put together a coherent sentence.

Don't remember him complaining too much about Richard Gough, Andy Goram, Stuart McCall or Kieran Tierney who were all born outside of Scotland.

I’ve had the misfortune to meet Nicholas at a function years back. He is hands down the worst after dinner speaker I have ever seen. All ME ME ME.

Whereas after dinner speakers are encouraged to talk about current events rather than about themselves and their experiences. 

Id suggest you’re talking shite tbh.

Suggesting thick as f**k, Charlie Nicholas isn’t a good public speaker is hardly a stretch.

You would know all about talking shite right enough son having spoke enough of it on this thread.

Telling lies to try and impress strangers on the internet seems to be a trend on here, you’ll fit right in on the Bo’ness thread.

Surely you have to be slightly coherent to partake in after dinner speaking?

I was pleasantly surprised with Charlie Nicholas as an after dinner speaker at a recent event here in Matsuyama. Not only did he deliver his speech in perfect Japanese but his proposals for reversing climate change and the Middle East peace process were nothing short of revolutionary.

He did come across as a bit of a narcissistic c**t telling a story about his playing days at Arsenal and that Jeff Stelling is a w****r in real life though......

Was it a charity dinner for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

How's your Japanese coming along sjc, fluent yet? Seems a very hard language to learn to me.

Brian McClair: Southgate sent a text, McLeish came to the training ground to see him during all the bad weather. 

Wee things like this must surely help at international level in terms of building a bond between players and manager.

Read that article too, but I've also read articles where he pretty much said "I would have always chosen Scotland", so I'm not going to give McLeish massive amounts of credit for persauading him when it seemed like it just confirmed his choice.

Still, it's positive.  We've heard a lot in the past decade or so about them searching every avenue for eligible players, but it's rarely to this degree.  If we're starting to approach players like McTominay and Gunn with a bit more professionalism, and not seeming like we're just trying to get a ringer in for a 5s game, then maybe we'll get more luck.

Yep agreed I do like the fact Mcleish got down there to speak to him in person during the bad weather.

I'm fairly sure McLeish lives down there

So in fact he just shuffled across the road in his pants and asked McTominay "How's about it?"

Sounds like McLeish is for the watching if that's what happened.

First time I've seen Mctominay kick a ball about a football park as i don't watch the English mince,positives very comfortable on the ball can pick a pass negatives got caught on the ball and heavy touch when running with the ball i'm sure he will get better,for me McGregor McGinn and Armstrong are better players.

Disagree with that completely. Not just because he’s 6ft 4, but McTominay, at the moment, is clearly head and shoulders above those you’ve mentioned. Him and Robertson are our best players by a mile. The flaws in McTominays game you’ve identified can be easily overlooked as it was his first international, and was surrounded by absolute dross that aren’t on his wavelength and no clue what they’re doing.

Your a EPL fanboy so little surprise with your answer.     

You post suggests McTominay plays like the 2nd coming of Andrea Pirlo,  and his craft was vision was diluted by poor movement and positioning.    He's clearly a talented DM, and he did absolutely fine for his first cap.    But to suggest he's 'miles' better than Keiran Tierney or Leigh Griffiths is nonsense.    

TBH there isn't a great deal to pick between the following:

Scott McTominay
Tom Cairney 
Kevin McDonald 
Callum McGregor 
Stuart Armstrong 
James Morrison 
James McArthur 
Barry Bannan 
Charlie Adam 
Darren Fletcher 
Graham Shinnie 
Kenny McLean 
Graham Dorrans 
John McGinn 
Ryan Jack 
Dylan McGeouch 
Liam Henderson 
Ryan Gauld   

...and of course the now retired Scott Brown

Not much to choose between Brown, Fletcher and James Morrison; and Liam Henderson, Ryan Jack and Kevin McDonald.
