Robertson has been hopeless. I would blame it on the formation, but I think that would be a generous assessment - even the basics have been awful.

Awful. No idea what we were trying to achieve here. Midfield absolutely clueless, Dykes did well with what he was given, and definitely showed up Burke.

Plus he rarely shows up for Scotland.

What an absolute pish second half.  Why was Forest still on the pitch?  Tbf Not that he was much worse than so e of the others.

Less than two years ago we beat Israel at Hampden 3-2 under McLeish. Forrest hat trick. The same Forrest who couldn’t cross a road tonight.
We weren’t great that night but we won, played some good attacking stuff and scored some good goals. Much more than can be said for us tonight.
It’s quite clear we have regressed since then. Absolutely brutal under Clarke, again.
Not saying we should sack him, not sure who would even take the job. Getting to the stage now where you just accept that not beating Israel home is to be expected. I wouldn’t be in the least bit surprised if they beat us next month. We’re just so... bad.


Forrest only has a worldie if literally everyone in the world doesn’t expect anything from him. The most infuriating player in football.

A McLeish performance and a worse than McLeish result.

People have said that Scotland need to pick a system and stick with it. Clarke had a system which we'd been winning with and he chose to tear it up tonight for no apparent reason, making us poorer in every area of the park. An insane decision leading to a completely unacceptable result.

Absolute shite that, it really was. Clarke got it so very wrong tonight. I'm also sick of James Forrest, he offers nothing for Scotland.

To give a slight positive, I think there's potential in using Dykes to his strengths, but once again it showed just how woeful we are when the midfielders can't support the lone frontman.  Get people around Dykes, he should be able to make things happen.  We defended pretty well too, at least a little less worrisome than usual.

The rest though?  Deary me.
