The three most profitable crimes in Kazakhstan are the sale of drugs, weapons, and people.  gvnet

 

So the fitba might have been keech, but a wander into any of their open air markets could see the weary fitba fan stock up on heroin, AK47s, and Kazak sex slaves, guaranteeing even the most jaded Scotland fan a terrific end to their trip. 

 

In fact, by the sounds of things, skipping the fitba altogether and just heading to the market sounds like the better idea. 

 

Completely wasted on those tartan trumpets.

Shinnie getting it tight from all angles. It's no excuse but he genuinely has hardly played left back since he came to us.

What's the likes of McGregors excuse for being absymal yesterday apart from him having down syndrome?

 

That he's overrated and generally just a big fish in a very little and shite pond?

The whole team were pish but Shinnie made some high profile mistakes that led directly to goals and he knows himself how bad it was, he seems to realise that it will be hard to come back at international level after that.

The rest of the team must be delighted that he’s taken the spotlight off them.

I think it's the opposite. He's talked down because he plays in Scotland, which is what we seem to do for all our players. As soon as they leave for England they get put on a platform and talked up.

ah mind a game he played against celtic at hampden for ICT. he was absolutely flying that day at left back.

 

if you don't have that souness chest puffed out mentality when it comes to moving up a level then it is difficult to produce the goods like you did when you were the big man in a wee team.

What a load of fucking shite.

He made a couple of errors. He is being used as a scapegoat here.
Scotland have had players who have got away with far greater levels of shit for decades.

never forgive armstrong for giving the ball away when we were 2-1 up against england.

High profile errors which led to goals against. He knows himself he had a nightmare, read his interview in the paper.

But yes, he'll conveniently take the focus off many others who also played shite

What would a full strength Scotland team actually look like? We must have a better and more commanding keeper than Bain? Surely Big Joe could muster up a Scottish granny somewhere?

Marshall
Tierney Mulgrew McKenna Robertson
McTominay McGregor
Forrest Armstrong Fraser
Burke

Is that about our strongest team?

Who else would you play up front then? McBurnie? McNulty? Griffiths is a candidate but he's currently out of the game with mental health problems has been since last year so you can't really count him at the minute. Who else have we got as a striker? I can't think of many. Steven Fletcher? Naismith? Hardly an inspiring list is it?

Jesus wasn't weeping at your selection. More so, the lack of options.

I do enjoy your very long response. You should go into journalism.

Burke is probably the best option we have at the minute and he's not even a natural striker.

Think I'll pass on any potential career in journalism and just continue to talk shit on here instead.

It goes deeper than the National side though,our who game and league structure,and at grassroots level is in a mess..
Christ how long ago was it that we produced players that graced the top sides doon sooth?
There used to be at least 2 or 3 jocks in every one of their sides.


You realise that was before English clubs had ridiculous amounts of money to spend on very expensive foreign imports? But yes, your point about the game being shite is pretty much true. The thing that rankles is that our younger age groups always do well against other countries until we hit senior level, how do we get that progression?

We obviously haven't got the right coaches to take them to next level.
Robertson improved immensely when he went doon south to Hull,hence Liverpool signed him...Something desperately wrong somewhere.

It's quite plausible that this is why our national team were good, because there were opportunities down south whereas now they are few and far between. The English team is full of young players who have graduated through EPL teams surrounded by tip quality international players coaches by top quality international coaches. Best way forward for Scotland is to encourage more talented youth down south or abroad.

Not now they don't. They used to but now they're almost as useless as the big team. With every generation that goes by we seem to be getting further away from the top end of the game. Even physically we seem to be regressing. That team we had out looked outgunned in stature before we even get to our technical deficiencies.

I remember reading something about coaching in Scotland. I'm probably getting the details wrong but the general gist was we've got far less qualified coaches per capita of most footballing nations and the cost of becoming a qualified coach is much more expensive as well.

I helped out coaching with kids football 6-9 year olds. The coaching is a complete load of pish.

Warm ups and warm downs, showing tactics on iPads. Wise the fuck up.

Just chuck a ball in and let the kids enjoy themselves. The best ones will always shine. No coincidence that all the best players come from countries where they play football all day in the street.
