    I'm a fan and I respect him.

    There ARE bound to be players who don't respect him - because a lot of players are dicks and it is inevitable with the egos that exist in modern football that there will be at least a couple who don't respond to a particular manager.

    He's had a quiet last few years, that's for sure, but he's done enough as a player at both club and international level and as a manager to command respect of players. More than anything he's the man in the chair - for that alone he deserves respect and it doesn't reflect well on anyone who doesn't show him it.

    Yes they won - by boring the opposition to death, anti football at it's worst.

    I suspect Portugal wonít need to go quite as negative v Scotland.

    McLeish should have been nowhere near the job. He has done nothing in management for years. A dinosaur of a manager who is absolutely clueless.
    Spot on !! Remember when we actually used to care about the Scottish National side ? Nah, me neither !

    There is no way we should be even considering sacking our manager now. The last game - only his first competitive game - was very encouraging, with pretty much the same team who played tonight.

    Tonight we played pish and lost. Big deal, that is going to happen to us from time to time.

    We've still got time to do well in the Nations League, then we've got the proper qualifiers. Then we can re-assess the manager's role.

    If there is any player who doesn't respect what McLeish has done in the game and does not respect the position of the Scotland manager then he should not be considered for selection.
    Unfortunately I don't think we will be considering sacking him.....but we should. That was a total shambles of a game in every department except the keeper. The players didn't seem to have a clue as to what the game plan was, if indeed there was a plan. If we had lost 5-1, which probably we should have, he should have resigned.

    Here is my daughters reply when I asked, ď how low can Scotland go?

    They have never been good in my lifetime so this is just normal😂

    Says everything!!

    Possible Managers we could get if Mcleish is goes.

    Clarke - Don't think anyone would be disappointed with that

    Alex Neil - bit young but I feel he would buy into a project/shake up

    Steve Bruce - Dunno how I'd feel about a English man in charge, but beats mcleish

    Henry - Maybe could see him taking it if offered but wouldn't feel confident with it being his first job

    Big Sam - same as Bruce English man but beats anything we've had the last 10 years.

    I hope we are looking for a replacement.

    I'm afraid I'm firmly in the apathetic camp when it comes to Scotland. They have been so bad for so long, my enthusiasm is zero. If we were good to watch, that would at least be something, but we aren't. Should we one day have a half decent side again, I'm sure I would re-discover some enthusiasm, but it seems unlikely. It's a shame really, yet that's how bad we are.

    I wouldn't pay to see Scotland in a pointless friendly v Portugal and I won't watch it on TV.

    Poland v Italy or even Israel v Albania hold more interest for me, but I doubt I'll watch either of those two either.

    Is it grammatically correct to use "either" twice in 5 words like that?
    I feel this is what years of negative tactics and poor football have resulted in. Friendlies are poor because Scotland never experiment. We never play 2 forwards. Or 3. Or anything interesting. Or anyone interesting. It's usually just the same faces. Maybe a new one or 2 if an old firm player can't be arsed. They've been missed opportunities for a interested fresh faced manager to experiment like the bigger nations do.

    I think a match between a positive, attacking Scotland side and Portugal would be well worth watching.

    Or perhaps winning football at its best?
    You could probably say that if they didnít draw the majority of their games and sneak through as a third place team out of four she to a new format.

    Bruce, Henry and Allardyce wouldn't go anywhere near the Scotland job. The money wouldn't be enough. Failure would blow any chance of them returning to the top two leagues down south and any limited success ie tournament qualification would hardly enhance their reputations down south either.

    Clarke and Neil would be mad to take it at this stage in their careers as it could be career ending.

    The Scotland jobs become a pre-retirement gig. Any replacement for McLeish will come from that same pool of once decent managers who have nowhere better to go.

    No chance Lennon could ever manage Scotland. There's really only one international team in these parts he could ever manage.

    Get a foreign manager in, if not Alex Neil would be a good shout 5 year rebuild contract ....but to allow any rebuild the inept idiots at the SEA need replaced they are full of their own self importance and arrogance. The saying that a player is never bigger than a club, fits with this scenario all of them think scottish football can't survive without their decision making ...aye right !! How can fans influence this . A boycott of the Portugal game a protest at the Portugal game, it's better using this meaningless game at this stage of a campaign than at a game where we need unity and a result !!
    Standing back as has been going on for years now has only resulted in us sliding further down the football scale ....
    People take a pop at Petrie regards this because we have all witnesses his arrogance and rigidity in managing a footballing business, it's crap, the only reason Hibs are where they are is because of the capability of Leanne Dempster and character, where she has driven Hibs forward and brought success, Petrie has no option to go with it, because it's working big style and if he hampers with it at al! And if it goes pear shaped everyone knows it will be down to his risk averseness, old-school attitude and lack of personality .....Scotland going forward is no longer a risk in terms of making significant change to our structure ..as it's pretty close to rock bottom !!

    No you wouldn't. Actually not a bad price to see Moutinho, Andre and Bernardo Silva etc. Portugal won the euros 2 years ago.
    I would nail planks up too. How dya like them apples?

    Scotland v Portugal (friendly)
    Tickets only £35 or £30 take your pick
    No Ronaldo
    If they played the game in my back garden I would walk over and close the curtains
    Would be better making them half that price and getting maybe 35000.
    There wont be 20000 there against Portugal..pretty sure of that.

    What do we expect when Edinburgh's fifth best Scottish centre back gets a game?
