Scotland squad face March 2021

Recommended Posts

I wonder if he’s planning on trying out McTominay in midfield again. There’s an awful lot of centre halves in the squad if not.

I don’t see the harm in trying out Nisbet even if his purple patch at the start of the season has died down. We’re hardly blessed with options there. McBurnie being there ahead of both Griffiths and Shankland I’m less keen on though. In the Slovenia game the two of them looked far more dangerous in their cameo appearances after McBurnie spent the whole game shitting the bed.

Can see why he's there, but personally I'd like to see McGinn deeper playing in Jacks role (which Fleck is backup for), which lets us get two out of Armstrong, Christie, Fraser into the starting XI. 

 

 

Completely agree with this. 

I think our best options for the two holding midfield roles ar McTominay next to McGinn. McGinn has been playing there all season for Villa. It would give great protection and a good bit of quality there with drive and physique.

Also would allow you to call up either Gauld or Turnbull if McGinn not playing further forward.

Happy with the squad.
Re Turnbull & Gauld, it's quite nice that we can afford to resist the temptation to call up these players. Almost like we're not totally shite anymore.

P.S. I would have called up Turnbull, but either way his time will come and pretty soon.

I'd like to have seen Turnbull called up in place of Fleck, I'd probably have taken Gauld and I probably wouldn't have taken Nisbet but apart from that squad is fine for me.

They clearly weren't "all" born in England, given that he qualifies to play for Scotland. Fucking idiot.

Also, wid.

Also, not sure it's the World Cup we're playing in?

She has probably seen that Nisbet has been called up and we therefore have one hand on the trophy.

was really excited when i saw the squad  being named and even more so when i saw we had Che Adams in the squad. Then my elation was severely dampened when I saw this useless piece of pish has been selected as well.   Oli McBurnie (Sheffield United)

You are missing something. 

I don’t actually think he has played that well for Motherwell this season although he has been a lot better the last few games.
But in his defence people like u keeping stating he is shite, when he has actually turned in decent performances for Scotland last few games 🤔

 

He is shite though isn’t he?  But he’s done alright so it would be a sin to drop him now!

Yeah Clarke all but confirmed on Sky that he will be looking to play McTominay in midfield for some or all of these upcoming games. Said that Ryan Jack might not make it due to injury and if he doesnt then McTominay will definitely start in the midfield.

Fairly content with the squad. Clarke is a loyal manager and remaining loyal to those who got us to the Euros.

Only David Turnbull can really feel aggrieved at missing out, Shankland and Nisbet really is see how Nisbet trains.

With McTominay likely to be in midfield then bringing in Hanley and Hendry is a no brainer to try to fill that RCB role and see if either can nail it down.

Delighted to welcome on board our new Lord and saviour Che Adams! Even more so given the rage from English folk.

Have to say Leigh Griffiths looks very much in the international wilderness now and could do with seeing how Jack Hendry has worked his way back into the squad - get out of warming the bench at Celtic and go play more football.

Why wouldn't Fleck be in the squad? He's been in most squads recently and has generally been fine when he has played.

Hasn't Shankland been in most of the recent squads?

Just a personal opinion, but I don't think Fleck has done much at all for a while when he's played for Scotland.
