    33-1 with Paddy Power. Would ease the pain!

    Wonder if Stubbs would be interested? With Rod on SFA board, Stubbs name may well be discussed.

    Good with the media, excellent man manager - I think hed be a good appointment.

    His last result at Hampden was pretty decent! 😂
    I've already suggested that. Did very well bringing on young players with us too which IMO is important for who we appoint.

    First of all, get rid of all the auld cloth caps that run the SFA. I always remember Roughy saying that they only thought of themselves and not their country AND that was away back in 1978 WC...it's NOT changed a bit.

    Two guys that I would appoint at the top would be Gordon Smith & Brian McClair ( these two left because the committee wouldn't allow them to carry out what was required )

    They both know what Scotland need from the bottom up and how kids should be coached. McClair must be kicking himself, leaving Man Utd thinking that he was going to change the system.

    Then get the correct manager in and all sing from the same hymn sheet..!

    Ha, whilst typing this Gordon Smith on Radio 2 sort of slating Gordon Strachan about not playing the correct squad at the start of the campaign.


    And for the manager...GOD FK&iNG KNOWS

    At any level of football the essential requirement of a manager is that he puts the right team on the park.Strachan failed to do this a number of times and it seems that often it was his way of telling the press he would do it his way and not the way they wanted him to do it.

    Sorry to see Strachan go. Probably the right time though.

    Looking forward to hearing more about his theories of eugenics now he'll have more time to develop them.

    He was superb for Everton; it's just all gone wrong since. I still think he's a good manager.

    But if he wasn't Scottish would he be considered?

    You might be right about him potentially being an excellent manager......or he could be an average one that got a bit lucky at Everton. The national team shouldn't be an experiment to see if someone's still got it or not.

    I don't know much about Moyes but from the little I've seen he's lost his enthusiasm, he doesn't look or come across as someone that'll inspire players.

    IMO there's no great Scottish candidates to be the top guy but there's plenty of good candidates to assist whoever gets it.

    People I'd like to be considered are:-

    Allardyce
    Klinsman
    Bert van marwijk (don't know much about him but seems to be successful at national level)
    Martin O'Neill (he may fancy a new challenge after this campaign?)


    A.n.other (there must be a director of football somewhere in Europe that'd be suited to international management)

    Fwiw I think Michael O'Neill will get it and it'll be a complete disaster.

    Whoever it is, their only job should be to get the best first team possible and qualify for a damn tournament.

    He should have nothing to do with trying to organise the game, develop kids or put action plans into place. All of that is for clubs and the SFA to deal with. I dont want him anywhere near a think tank.

    This is is meant to be the pinnacle of our game. Lets stop mucking around trying to build for the future and concentrate on winning the next game. Then the next one.

    I'm happy he's gone. You can't fail at 2 campaigns and still be in a job- what kind of country are you!!!!!

    Get Micheal O'Neil in pronto
    IMHO he would be a disaster eye bleeding hoof ball and i think he has just got lucky. He lost his first ten games if he lost his first four Scotland he would be out

    If Scotland want to win things, they should appoint Alan Stubbs!

    Same here, but after turning down the chance to manage in the PL not sure hed take it. Plus hes still young and may want to still be involved in everyday stuff that goes with a club manager like training each day and just being involved in club football.

    Huge difference from that to managing at international level.
