Squad face March

Recommended Posts

Lewis Morgan is a strange one. 
Looks like a strong squad, though. I'm happy about the quality of team that we can put together. 


Does it? I think it’s as poor a squad as I’ve seen for a while.

I can see a point in Kazakhstan, which will basically end our campaign before it starts

I think there are some very mediocre players in there, but there's a strong team to pick out of that. It's a long way from where I want it to be, but the options are, on the whole, better than last year. Plenty of pace and intensity in there. 

I can think of much worse squads in recent times.

Think harper will be a bit disenchanted that mcnulty has been called up and he hasn’t . Different players though mcnulty more central and if we need a goal with 10 mins left a good option

:lol: what a brutal squad we have these days

FWIW Archer has conceded 10 goals in his last 4 games, clearly a talent we cant miss out on, while McNulty seems to be there because hes had one good month for a team McLeish thinks is big.

Lewis Morgan has been at Sunderland three months and has four starts :lol:

Feel sorry for Kerr and Findlay, who are outstanding young defenders, but get ignored for Mulgrew.

I was happy with what would've been our first 11 a couple of weeks ago, but goalkeeper, striker and left-wing might be problem areas (against Kazakhstan, anyway).

He wasn’t playing when he got sold so don’t know how you’ve come to that conclusion 

He fell out with the manager and worked his ticket.

So he wasn’t playing then

So out of that we should hopefully line up something like:-

Bain
Palmer, Bates, McKenna, Robbo
McTominay, Fleck
Forrest, McGregor, Fraser
McBurnie

Disappointed that there’s no Snodgrass and was also hoping Che Adams would agree to play.

Striker and keeper maybe but Ryan Fraser will still be at left wing I'd imagine.

Fraser and Paterson won’t be in Kazakhstan, allegedly due to the artificial surface but more likely because its seven hours away and either they or their club can’t be arsed with it.

Ah shit. Completely missed that.

Decent squad. Not really sure why some are saying it's the weakest for some time? From the last squad we've lost Christie to injury and McGregor to petulance, but we've got Tierney back and an on-form Burke too.

For Kazakhstan:

Bain

Tierney Bates McKenna Robertson

McTominay McGregor

Burke   Armstrong   Forrest

McBurnie

Rumours Fraser won't play on the plastic pitch over there but fortunately we have good alternatives in Forrest and Burke

For San Marino:

Bain

Palmer Bates McKenna Robertson

McTominay McGinn

Forrest Burke Fraser

McBurnie

Quite pleasing that we're forced to leave out the likes of Armstrong and McGregor for a line-up like this. Shows a bit of depth of quality in the midfield and out wide. Be good for McBurnie to bag a few goals in this one and start to shift opinion about his international credentials.

Delighted for Liam Palmer getting a call up to the national team. He’s been pish for most of the season HOWEVER has been excellent since Steve Bruce came in and has been putting in consistent performances for the team and obviously has been rewarded for that and it will give the lad an extra boost of confidence.

Steven Fletcher would certainly of been in the squad as he’s been excellent this past couple of month but he got took off injured at Derby on Saturday.

Why are we forced to leave out Armstrong and McGregor?

I can't believe Dom Thomas has been overlooked. What is it with Scotland managers not picking in form Dumbarton players!

Don't mind the squad. Sure, we're light in the goalkeeper and striker department, and I'm not entirely convinced with Barry Bannan or Kenny McLean, but it's probably about as good as we've got right now.

Marc McNulty was unexpected but I've been impressed with him in recent weeks.  His dad is also bursting with pride on social media and I find it quite endearing, strangely.

So Snodgrass has retired as well?
Where is Matt Phillips? Was he injured on Saturday?


Snodgrass is dealing with an ongoing family issue, which was quite widely publicised.

Phillips has been injured on and off for the last little while.

Bit of an insight on what Palmer can bring. A more defensive fullback on that side would give us balance with Robertson bombing on.
