And yet Tom Cairney has only been called up twice. Jamie Murphy, same, despite 76 games for Brighton. Kevin McDonald, nearly 100 games for Fulham, 5 caps. Marmite Rhodes, 14 games (3 goals) in 8 years. Ross McCormack, 13 games (2 goals) in 11 years. Liam Cooper, Over 140 games for Leeds, no full caps.

There are bigger issue in Scotland and you have to wonder what the selection criteria is.

That's interesting. A lot of quality in there, (and McCormack) so they're not bereft on decent players. Certainly no more than say NI who make a much better fist of things. 

Think only employing Scottish managers of late hasn't helped either. There's a lot of good quality managers out there and a bit of thinking outside the box and a foreign appointment may well be the way forward. 

When the likes of McLeish is a candidate for the job (regardless of the debatable issue he wasn't the best man for the job) you know you've not cast the net wide enough in your recruitment drive.

Sad news coming out of Scotland today. Billy McNeill, legendary Celtic captain and the first Briton to lift the European Cup, has passed away after a long illness.

Given everything he achieved in the game, he remained a really humble, down-to-earth man. The word legend is often overused these days, but 'Cesar' was a genuine legend.

A sad day for Celtic and football in general. 

RIP Cesar

the amazing thing about that European cup winning side is they all came from about 20 miles of Glasgow.

They were all born within 10 miles of Celtic Park apart from one - who was from Saltcoats (about 30 miles away)

Sad indeed Andy. During the 1980s I watched Celtic many, many times (only once did I miss a Rovers game when I managed to get tickets for an Old Firm game!) and plenty when Billy was manager. RIP Billy.

Here’s a name to keep an eye out for in the future... Adil Aouchiche. No good for Mowbray fans as he’s only 16 but he’s just scored a hat trick for France in the U17 Euros, 8 goals in his last four games including one against England.

He’s at PSG so won’t be under the radar but he looks a real player. A midfielder too apparently!

Edit: make that 4 - just scored a pen. 10 goals in last 6 matches.

The 13-man board said it "retained the strong opinion that the presented proposal for reforming the European club competitions benefits just a few rich and dominant clubs but damages the leagues and the great majority of clubs playing in the domestic competitions.

You don't say. Almost like it's been purposefully designed that way :rolleyes: bit late to be worrying about that, anyway, it's already happened.

I knew what this would be before I clicked the link.

You have to wonder if these statues go through any form of quality control before being presented to the world. Or even a gentle tap on the shoulder, and a nod to a picture maybe. They actually do a disservice to those they are purporting to idolise.

That would not have come cheap. It is truly atrocious.

Does anyone know who the Sculptor was? He should be ashamed.

The statue was created by Belfast artist Tony Currie

Don't think he used to play for Sheff Utd but you never know,

Match-fixing in football: Spanish police make arrests in top two divisions

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48431483

I think there will be far more examples of this than the football authorities would like to admit.

How many shots was that on target against Spurs? When was that cup semi forfeited?

Murky stuff but I expect Spanish fans who expressed any concerns at the time will have been estúpidos portadores de sombrero de papel de aluminio.

I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.

In 1969 I gave up women and alcohol - it was the worst 20 minutes of my life.

I used to go missing a lot... Miss Canada, Miss United Kingdom, Miss World.
