On the 19th of May we will have our definitive list of dem boiz representing us at the Euros.

In a similar way to how the best poster of 2020 was decided in the Premiership forum; I am going to run a poll to put together a Hive Mind of who we as a forum are deciding should be part of the Scotland squad.

As per the above these are to be confirmed on the 1st of June so please either reply with the picks in the thread or send them to me by message. The deadline for the submission is going to be Saturday 15th May at 23:59 to give me time to do some weird spreadsheet shit before I play them back to the forum in probably a mildly unfunny and irritating manner. Please note this date may change if we get any indication we are announcing this earlier in the press.

At some point I will produce the final voted for P&B list and we can see how it compares to what Sir Steve Clarke picks and if we fail at the Euros we can all use it as a piece of evidence to present when applying for the job at a later date.

I will accept all submissions where the squad you submit is 26 players or less, anyone who sends more will be brutally ignored, if it determines there will only be 25 then the unlucky b*****d with the 26th pick will be left behind at the airport.

A minimum of 3 goalkeepers must be selected obviously, apart from that anything goes.

Anyone with over 1.5 St Johnstone players included will be publicly shamed.

I reserve the right to share any messages with humour to the forum upon posting the results.

Once your vote is made it cannot be edited, so if a player is injured, you’re humped.

was looking at the goal stats earlier and Robertson's scored more international goals than Dykes (although I accept big Lyndon holds the ball up well and can be a bit of a nuisance). I'm also very worried about McBurnie, def would not include him, id rather put McLean in there and get someone else in midfield, real shame Griffiths let himself go 😭

Tbf Robbo has also had 30-odd more caps in which to score, so Dykes is doing okay.

McBurnie, in current form, doesn't excite me one bit, but SC will pick him over Shankland, Nesbit or Griffiths.

I may be wrong, but is the idea not to pick your squad rather than what you think clarkes squad will be?

Indeed, happy to take whatever but the idea behind it was to get a list together of everyone’s picks and pull out the 26 players with the most mentions

In which case I'll still be lazy, and copy the running squad and just edit it.

A few contentious ones in there, but its my squad. 

Interestingly every squad so far has Liam Cooper in it, which makes you wonder what marshmallos been going on about all these months.

I agree to a certain extent. And dont think he would be asked, or even play if he was.

But objectively, hes one of our 3 best keepers easily.

I'd say he's the best we have but he's not interested and didn't play a part in any qualifying. His time is up internationally.

Right you are. In that case I'd fire McBurnie into the sea and bring along the fat, lumbering waster Griffiths

He technically did play in the qualifying campaign - he played in all the Nations League games. He can still f**k off though.

Updated rule, if you’ve picked a player and he’s pulled out through injury (ie Ryan Jack) you’re humped.

No takesies backsies.

Deadline for submissions is 21.05 so plenty time to wait to see how things play out.
