Time to go Steve Clarke

who are the forward players that Scotland have, who will make a difference?

I can't think of any Scottish players who have troubled Celtic this season.

The 3 highest placed Scottish players in last season's SPL were Bruce Anderson, Livingston (I had to look him up, as never heard of him before), Lewis Ferguson (how many penalties?)& Tony Watt.

Does anyone think any of them would improve the team?

I have never liked Clarke as a manager - I think he destroys football, but I can't see anybody else improving things due to the lack of playing quality that we have.

The idea that this is the best squad for 30 years is absurd. Look back at the players from the past 30 years, who would walk into this team.

 

The SPL doesn't exist and hasn't existed for over a decade now.

The national team are allowed to pick players who don't play in Scotland though.

Also, who has claimed this is the best squad in 30 years?

You are right in what you say, but why descend to cheap, sweary ad hominem? Makes you look pretty weak when your argument is quite strong.

It's what happens on the TA threads.

I've been called worse stuff on here than anywhere else on the whole site.  It's a bit weird, given that we're all kinda on the same team, but it's definitely the case.

TA section has upped its game since the juniors all but died.

Also the Czech game “two going on five” was nothing of the sort. We outplayed them for 90 minutes and they just won because we wasted our chances whereas they took theirs.

"Two going on five" is indeed nonsense.

Not nearly as ludicrous as the claim that we outplayed them for 90 minutes though.  That is genuinely bonkers.

Marshall made two or three good saves in that game which are forgotten due to his howler

We missed a ridiculous amount of chances in that Czech game which is why it stung so much. We had fairly lengthy spells on top from what i remember but aye it's a stretch to say we outplayed them for 90 minutes.

The whole Euros felt a bit like that - we were schooled by Croatia but still missed stupid chances from what i remember. A draw was about right in the England game but again, we still had a handful of real opportunities to score. You can maybe get away with those against Israel, Armenia etc, but much like McGinn's sitter in the Ukraine game, you simply can't miss those chances against half decent sides and expect to get anywhere.

As much as the game was bad last night and unsettling it was as much the fault as the players than the manager 

People can talk shapes and systems untill the cows come home but if the players don't turn up we don't win or even perform well

So say he gets sacked or walks,who do we get in?For me it has to be someone that took teams to finals

So who is on that list?

Stuart Baxter 68 prob to old

Chris Coleman is 52 but took job in Greece 

Michael O Neil well he already has turned us down before 

If we cant get someone with a track record that is better than Clarke then we might as well back him and stick with him

This is first, and I'm going to guess only time, anyone will ever read that you might aswell keep Clarke because Baxter, Coleman and O'Neil aren't available.

So it's managers who gave taken British or Irish national teams to WC or Euro finals? There are a few others who could be added to your bizarre shortlist, e.g. Mick McCarthy, Martin O'Neill, Roy Hodgson, Glen Hoddle, Kevin Keegan...

We could get a foreign manager with a good track record if the salary is attractive. Joachim Low is currently a free agent and wants to return to management.

Ryan Giggs, 48, led Wales to Euro 2020 and could be available within the next year.....

If we have "the stones" to appoint another foreign manager, Laurent Blanc is another free agent. He took France to the QFs of the Euros. Other countries, e.g. Belgium and Turkey, have foreign managers.

The Ryan Giggs that is currently under investigation for assault, nah you're alright.

If we ever have another foreign manager because Vogts was shite, why do we continue to have Scottish managers after so many of them have been pish?

Yip, precisely this.

If Bertie means we daren't ever go foreign again, then the evidence that we should never again appoint a Scot, must be mountainous.
