McKenna was probably about the only one except Marshall not standing about in awe of Hazard.

Cunt was given a free run at sending in a ball like a training session

I just don’t get it. Clearly firing 5 players up front would be foolhardy but if you have a go and chase down at every opportunity snap at their legs, let them know they are getting no time on the back , surely the way forward.

Clearly you will be fucked after 80 minutes and might get picked off but you would still get applauded off the park by everyone.

Just have a fucking go within reason.

What, so every player running from position to snap into tackles?

What if the players they all run out to shut down are really good, spin our player and play a slide rule pass into the now vacated space behind us?

FFS, Yes that’s exactly what I said, centre halves charging into challenges on the right wing. Clearly not.

Sitting off better teams inevitably ends in defeat, run yourself into the ground with the player you are up against snap at him, no time on the ball see what Pep / Klopp does, no reason to not be fit enough. You may well get picked off anyway or be totally fucked at the end of the game but at least have a go.

Man who was sacked disagrees with being sacked.

Pair of them were so completely out of their depth it wasn't funny.

McFadden has went from a Scottish footballing hero to a wee prick. The fact that he can't see why he and McLeish were jettisoned shows he'll never make it as a coach. He can't see what went wrong and his own part in it, so he'll never learn. Having a pop at folk like me who booed that shower of shite in San Marino is pathetic.

Agreed.

His logic is bewildering as well. It's OK that we (Scotland) lost to the Kazakhs because Kairat Almaty papped us (The Famous) out of the Europa League 4 years ago?

Blithering idiot. Next stop assistant coach at some League Two dross.

Exactly he compares the national team to clubs that are full of well paid foreigners, they same national team that were pumped 4-0 in there next home game to Russia

Any time fadz was asked to give some analysis when he was a pundit last season, he had absolutely nothing to say. Just this type of appointment that needed binning and not brought back if we're ever to move on.

But we'll do the same again before you know it.

Jobs for the boys at the SFA. Ability not really a requirement.

Let's hope Clarke does the business and also sticks around for 2 or 3 campaigns.

What so far under Clarke's tenure makes you think thst, bearing in mind the assistants he has installed?

Nothing.

I'm taking about once Clarke moves on - hence my comment hoping he is around for a good while.

Clarke has done nothing that a squad assembled by McLeish wouldn't have achieved. Scrambling a result against Cyprus then letting Belgium practice shooting is nothing like progress.
Russia will comfortably beat Scotland in Russia, Scotland might scramble a draw at Hampden. Playing for 3rd at best, likely finish 4th.

Half of those wouldn't have turned up for McLeish and we would've either drawn or lost against Cyprus followed by an absolute gubbing from Belgium. I agree we're playing for third but under McLeish we'd be struggling for fourth.

Isn't that ignoring the real problem? - McLeish has already fucked this campaign with the shambles against Kazakhstan.

That's the sort of thing Clarke has to ensure doesnt happen under his watch - he's not here to turn Scotland into Belgium.

A joke bet that I honoured, even though it was a joke, because I'm a good cunt?

You'd think you'd have learned to shut the fuck up and stop being a narcissistic, self-obsessed wee wank. Guess not.
