    I think Scotland are seeing the difference of a non Old Firm Manager.
    Picking players for what they can do, not who they play for!
    Tho' the panelists last night saying about Scotland picking players from all the big clubs?
    Hope Clarke continues with his strategy, and not fall foul of the Old Firm media calls!!!

    The irony being that same approach, giving players in form a chance regardless of who they play for, has been heavily criticised on here by quite a few. Tough gig being a Scotland manager as you canít win with some whatever you do.

    Not everyone will know what the issue with LG was overnight, I certainly didn't until about 10 minutes ago, don't believe for one minute he knew what Lafferty has been through recently, I certainly didn't
    It's maybe just me but this doesn't make sense. What do you mean LG's issue overnight?

    Lyndon Dykes was excellent last night and was very unlucky to be taken off.

    Heís removed himself from Twitter again after slagging off Lafferty. He just needs to remove himself from all social.

    From a quick Twitter search it seems his sister passed away recently. I'd be pretty surprised if LG knew that but it obviously looks bad.

    Dykes has been a revelation for Scotland. He might not have been born here, but he's clearly a passionate man and giving everything for the cause.

    I was so impressed by how he played against very good quality defenders. Although they were bigger than him, he still won lots of balls in the air and was strong enough to hold them off with the ball at his feet. The tide was turning before he came off, but McBurnie just couldn't get on the ball and that made it so much easier for the Serbs during the last part of the game.

    It's been a masterstroke getting the laddie on board. He'll be a top flight player down south soon enough, one way or another.

    No he doesn't, it's a shame that the internet is full of idiots who'll try to apportion the absolute worst meanings to peoples comments, but LG did nothing wrong.

    Does it though?

    It can only look bad if you believe he was laughing at Laffertys sister dying, which he quite obviously wasn't.

    He's the striker we've needed for years. Hopefully he goes on to have a good season for QPR.

    Griffiths is doing his very best never to get picked for any football team again. Someone just needs to stop him ever having social media. Heís too stupid to be allowed on the internet.
    You post some amount of utter ***** on here. And changing your username wont change that.

    Dykes was brilliant, and the difference it made to our play when we took him off for McBurnie was massive. I never thought he was that good when he was at Livi.

    I'm still one of those who doesn't think we should have players in the team who qualify to play for us like he does, but I'll support whoever is playing, and if he continues playing like that I'll be delighted.

    I agree with brightside. Leigh needs to stop using social media. Regardless of whether he meant offense about Laffertys sister, (and itís highly likely he was totally ignorant of the situation) all the kerfuffle canít be doing his mental health any good.

    I was thinking this last night. Personally itís easier for me to warm to this team because thereís less OF content in the first eleven than thereís ever been.

    I think given his style of play, it's difficult for him to last 90 minutes at that tempo.

    But he was fantastic. No coincedince we couldn't get out when he went off.

    Hard to believe how many hold up and knock on headers Dykes wins. What amazes me is that he very rarely gives away a free kick when he jumps. Lots of you will remember guys like Duncan Ferguson, Joe Jordan etc playing up front for Scotland and giving away free kick after free kick in the same situations.

    He has effortlessly made the transition from Livingston to International Football.
    He totally disrupted quality Serbian defenders last night.
    Even non playing things like having a smile for the referee last night played in his favour.
    Remarkable cool customer.

    Hope Livvi have a decent sell on fee, because some of the EPL sides will be looking at him soon
    Could set them up for years if he was to go for big money

    Thought he was class last night, won everything in the air. As a few other have said, a fully fit Griffiths buzzing off his flick ons could be a deadly combination

    Skilful and strong. Plays with a smile on his face and has a great attitude it seems. Whatever Scotland did to persuade him he needed to play for Scotland was a masterstroke.

    Think James McFadden played a bit part in getting him to play for Scotland, seemingly were teammates at QOS
    Think speaking to Clarke would have been the clincher

    An example of the undiscovered football talent in Australia.

    He never played any higher than local state competition before trying his luck in his parentís home town.

    Another reason why Hibs should make a connection with an Australian club.

    Yup, plenty of people were giving Clarke abuse. All credit to him, he had a plan, kept working at it and didnít let the criticism affect him.

    Interesting point made on 5 live before the match: Steve Clarke lives in Surrey, so gets the chance to escape all the criticism and his family is kept away from it. Something in that I think.

    Great point if you watch him (I have to be honest and admit this is based almost totally on his last two international performances only) he seems to jump AWAY from the defender when trying to win a header, avoiding claims of a push or an elbow, almost like he makes good judgement about where the aerial ball is going to land so has an advantage over the defender more times than not. Seems to be as simple as great natural timing.
