He did for us. Not in a side by side style, more playing just behind or in front of Dobbie.

His lack of recent starts at QPR is certainly showing here.

Am I the only one thinking Dykes looks out of shape? He seems to be blowing oot his arse and I’m sure his face is rounder than before.

The idea was to make the deal permanent. 

Yes but he impressed so much that he was brought back and into the first team. Anyone trying to say he had a poor time down south is deluded.

Went to Nottingham with a view to a move, I believe. 

He was loaned out to Notts County before he was a first team player at Celtic. He was a bit and then went on to be excellent for Celtic. Saying he bombed is way off.

He did, didn’t he? And completely bombed. 

Nope. Celtic all career apart from a loan spell at Notts County earlier in his career at the same time as Jack Grealish.

McGregor ended up their top scorer and was considered to be a better prospect than Grealish.

McGregor has been bang average since someone decided he should play deeper in midfield. He was best as a more attacking midfielder.

Scoring a goal has the same effect on the Scotland team as eating a massive plate of turkey at Christmas has on me.

Would possibly take off Dykes for Nisbet for the second half. Dykes is looking a bit off the pace. 

Hopefully McBurnie is nowhere to be seen.

I’d put Nisbet on for Gordon tbh,  but dykes might be a more sensible option

Does anyone care that Moldova are beating Israel?
 


Not surprised, Israel are a hopeless side. Our failure to win there last week realistically finished our chances of getting out this group.
Best thing you can say about that half of football is that it was passable. Just about.
Good goal from our leading goal threat and then it’s just been a bit... ponderous, predictable and dull. Not surprising that we’ve let the Faroes have a few looks at goal too.
Would like to see Adams get a goal. He could be the best striker we’ve had for years - low bar - and a goal here would complete a decent debut week from him.

Mcgregors issue at higher levels is his lack of pace. Completely agree he was better further forward, his clever movement found him space despite his lack of pace.

Some half-time thoughts:

- Dykes is done as a regular starter until he starts showing something at club level, or we have a specific 1v1 matchup he can take advantage of. Doesn’t have the same intelligence our other attacking players do

- Is Ryan Fraser the solution to RWB? Probably not in a close game, because strikers will peel off and beat him in the air at crosses. But in a game where we’re going to dominate, he absolutely is.

- Let’s keep flexing Tierney into attack, because it works really well. Frees up Robertson too.

- The above are signs that Clarke learned from the Israel game.

nobody realise in a tight group where there is little between us, Israel & Austria that goal difference may matter.........
It's head to head first tho, but yeah we shouldn't neglect GD

Leeanne Crichton thinks that Scotland have been great to watch.  

Who is Leanne Crichton?
