    I think you understand what the phrase means.
    Yeah but I'm not sure why it's too early to discuss it. A lot of us are quite excited you know.

    Itís too early because weíve no idea who will be available in six or seven months time, who might have had good or bad seasons or played or not for their teams. Nothing wrong with being excited but picking a squad at this point is a bit pointless.

    You do know the fans donít pick the squad? A bit of fun/football chat to keep the excitement going. Nothing wrong whatsoever with chatting about potential squad makers, who from the current squad may not make it, which young players may step up.

    You should probably have ignored the thread then!

    And you could have ignored my point and cracked on but thatís not really how it works is it? If you have an opinion on something you tend to say it.

    Thereís so much football to be played we could be looking at some very different options in a few months time. Donít think Iíve ever seen such a premature conversation on a squad selection and thereís generally a good reason for that.

    Is it not a fluid debate? A discussion that will evolve over time as players get injured or come into/out of form etc. Weíre not setting any hypothetical squads in stone at this point.

    I think it's very much recognised that Clarke is playing a system, and that system is working. Many people complained early about his use of McTominay, and have been proven wrong. There are very few automatic choices in this squad...Robertson, McTominay Mcginn, Tierney, Marshall. Others that have earned likely automatic selection...Dykes, Gallacher, Christie, O'Donnell, Mclean, etc and others likely in, if they stay healthy ...Griffitths etc.
    But you can easily play youre way in, and that allows somebody like Hanlon a chance. I certainly wouldn't want to be somebody who called off due to a suspicious injury early in Steve Clarkes reign.
    One question though...when do the WC qualifiiers start, must be in the spring...somebody goes in and scores a bucketload of goals and theyre in the mix

    There is a couple of qualifiers in March.

    Without any injuries, I canít see there being too many spaces available in the squad. He picked 27 for this set of fixtures, sure a tournament squad is normally about 23/24? Think itíll be difficult for anyone to break in, that isnít already established in the squad.
