Young players ready to step up


Recommended Posts

We have a good crop of youngsters which imho is a positive so I'm hoping that Steve Clarke (he's not going anywhere thankfully) starts using them in the September qualifying campaign.  Maybe not every single player that I mention lol but it would be good to see at least some in match day squads:

Luis Binks (I know nothing of him so fill me in lol, is he International class or ready? 

Nathan Patterson: Hopefully gets a good run in the Rangers team, especially in Europe as that will improve him further 

Billy Gilmour: Showed he's ready to be in the team, in fact he should have been in a long time ago! 

David Turnbull: Hopefully he kicks on at Celtic and challenges to get into the Scotland team on a regular basis 

Allan Campbell: Hopefully has a successful time at Burton and pushes to get into future squads, maybe the next Nations League is more realistic for him.

Now I move on to eligible players, probably ones likely to never play for us, bar one or two. 

Ciaran Slicker: Like Binks, I don't know about this guy so fill me in. I see via SFA page that he's been in under 21 squads previously so that may be a sign he's pledged allegiance. 

Matt Targett: I don't see him play for us as we have a good crop of Lbs, unless we have him as 3rd choice behind Robertson and Tierney. 

Todd Kane or Ryan Fredericks could possibly be the ones that eventually pledge allegiance. I'd say Todd Kane is more likely though I'd like it to be Ryan Fredericks who I would put as our first choice RB with Nathan Patterson second behind him and Stephen O'Donnell 3rd choice behind those 2.

We are in desperate need of a striker to step up from the under 21s though or Karlan Grant to pledge allegiance because we cannot keep relying on Adams, Dykes and Nisbet every match day.  Oliver McBurnie, Lawrence Shankland and Oliver Burke are not good enough for international football imho and I'm fairly certain that Leigh Griffiths won't pull on a Scotland jersey again. 

 

When contributing to this thread I want no personal attacks on mine, or anyone else's opinions and please stay on topic too lol.

I'm sure McBurnie will be straight back into our squads, and spend another couple of years making us all wonder how an English club can spend £20million on an immobile, lazy carthorse with the first touch of a post box. He must be capable of something to go for that sort of money, right??

Um ok but I'll give my opinion anyway ..

Nathan Patterson should be our first choice right back now.

Turnbull is kicking on at Celtic and should replace Armstrong or even McGinn who could move to a more defensive position.

There's a few players at Bayern, hopefully they can develop.

Any sign of any young(er) keepers? We have 3 ageing goalies in the squad, at least one of whom is a reserve at his club.

Slicker at Man City and Mair at Norwich have been touted as possible #1s in future but f**k knows. 

McCrorie posisbly

Not seen much of Zander Clark but every time I do he seems decent?

Clark is one that crossed my mind but, like yourself, I've not seen a huge amount of him.

Angus Gunn has also signed for Norwich. Could be an option if we can convince him to follow in his dad’s footsteps.

I'd rather have his da' in the team. He's repeatedly dingied us and been a bit shite for his club team for a few years

He's been asked on multiple occasions. Continual no's.
