Taking my son to his first ever Scotland game (and my first in a few years). Team selection will be interesting. Be disappointing if the likes of Bannan and Morrison start over other available players.

I'm never optimistic before Scotland games and this is no different - they're going to sit in and play very conservatively, and we'll go hell for leather at them, leaving space behind us.

They're fast, and they'll pick us off on the counter.

Would love to be wrong, but another glorious failure awaits IMO.

I think this will all end in our usual glorious failure but it would be nice if they could at least win tonight, for the 50k fans that are making the effort to go.

It's definitely odds on failure either tonight or Sunday. And then even bigger odds on in any play off. Be heartening for next Euro qualifiers (where we should have a chance!) to finish 2nd though.

One of my mates is going to the game and said he'd read something about Bannen playing. Don't really rate him at all, and how he gets in instead of McGregor or McGinn is a bit of a mystery to me, except that Strachan does seem to have his favourites.

Sylar
05-10-2017, 01:36 PM
I'm hoping he starts with McGregor in the middle - in the absence of Brown, he provides some real composure, swift feet and a good ability to pick a pass. He's an exceptional young talent with Champions League experience, and would be well deserving of his opportunity.

I dont get the dislike of Bannan...this was an article on the BBC yesterday

"Bannan has drawn much praise of late. Lee Johnson, the Bristol City manager, said that if he could sign one player from a Championship rival, he'd pick Bannan. Thomas Christiansen, manager of Leeds, said that his team had made plans for Bannan ahead of last weekend's meeting in Sheffield. "We spoke about Bannan being a key player we had to stop, but we were not able to do it," he revealed. Wednesday won 3-0. The Scot was outstanding."

Thats pretty high praise......not sure who else in the squad would get the same attention.

We've been hearing for years how good he is, how well he is playing down South.

Whenever he gets on for Scotland, he just doesn't show the same level of performance, a bit like Chris Martin.

You start to look at the likes of McGinn, who impressed when he played against Denmark, and McGregor, who has become a very accomplished player for Celtic.

Any time I've seen him play for club or country he's been very average. Think he's one of these Ross McCormacks and Jordan Rhodes who have done well at Championship level but then fail at the international stage

And if we take the green specs off there is also a big difference with the Scottish Championship where McGinn has played most of his football. I think Bannan or McGinn will do just fine and both would get my full support whoever plays.

That's kind of my point.

McGinn has played a handful of International matches and looked the part.

Bannan has played dozens and never really looked good enough to play at that level, even if he does look the part against Brentford or Rotherham.

McGinn had played a lot of matches in the Premier League for St Mirren before joining us.

He's experienced at U21 level.

He's played in derbies, cup semis and cup finals for us, as well as being involved in Championship campaigns with little margin for error when you're expected to win every week.

John McGinn isn't an inexperienced wee laddie. He's already packed a lot into a career.

He was right though, we're being a bia selective, Bannan has played quite a few PL games & at a higher level for a prolonged amount of time, McGinn has the potential to do that at the moment

Bannan and Forrest have some nothing for Scotland, despite repeatedly being selected.

Snodgrass and Fraser disappearing has limited things a bit too, but we'll do well to score tonight looking at that. The most average midfield imaginable. Full backs have a hell of a lot riding on them now.

If McGinn had started,starred and notched a goal or two he would definitely be away in January.

By keeping him hidden wee Strachan might just have done us a favour!

We'll be 2-0 down after an hour and then he'll expect McGinn and MacGregor to pull us out of a hole.

What will be, will be.

GMS has made his choice about who will start the game. He knows better than I what is needed in terms of players, so, I can't complain about the line-up, even though I have a favoured line-up that differs from his.

I'm confident he will make any necessary changes when needed.

And so has Bannon packed a lot in that's my point.

He's packed in a lot more failure at THIS level than McGinn has though.

McGinn is unproven at International level but has shown promise. The comment I was responding to was in relation to why people don't seem to rate Bannan - I think it is because he's had dozens of chances to show what he can do for Scotland but hasn't taken them.

I'd take unproven over proven failure. I've seen with my own eyes what McGinn can do, all I have to go on with Bannan are his mediocre performances for Scotland and stories of him tearing up what is in my opinion a vastly over-rated league.




Pish team tonight, nothing like the best of what we have available. I actually think the first XI Scotland can put out is fairly strong and should do us justice. This isn't even close to the best we can come up with.

I think we have no chance, and look forward to this post being stuffed down my throat in a couple of hours.

Pretty much agree with that.

Fletcher is someone managers want to play at a level that the rest of the squad can only meet or aspire to.

Right or wrong, that's the facts.

I'm not convinced about Bannan but open-minded.

Agree re Forrest. He has some skill but he very clearly stands out as a Strachan favourite, with little evidence to justify him deserving his place.

"You talk about Callum McGregor and John McGinn but the best performance I've seen over the last three or four weeks is Barry Bannan's so he's definitely at the forefront of what we're trying to do," Strachan said. Must have been an amazing performance from Barry Bannon...

Yeah or even Fraser on wide and move Phillips central to give an aerial threat from crosses.

Strachan goes on about how good Bannan is for Sheff Wednesday. Aye maybe but he plays deep for them, quarterback style. So why play him more advanced tonight where he looks a bit lost?

Darren Fletcher is just very slow these days, so deliberate in every pass

Mac is an imbecile, firstly for diving when on a yellow. His brain went into gear once he hit the deck, as he remembered what a dive would mean. Secondly for remonstrating when there was no case for the defence. Idiot.

05-10-2017, 07:43 PM
I think we've been ok. Their keeper has made a couple of good saves.

Bannan has been pish and needs hooked. Fletcher has done well, he's good at what he does.

We need to stay patient, not lose the plot if we're not winning after an hour, although we do need to change it and step up the pace.

I'd bring on McGinn and McGregor after 5-10 minutes if we've not scored. McGinn's drive and ability to carry the ball could be invaluable, as could McGregor's quick feet.

I can't stand Forrest but think he's been ok.
