    World Cup 2018

    I think the officiating so far has been excellent, aside from the Sweden Korea match; the guy let nothing go and it was probably the hardest match to watch so far.

    I think he should be forgiven.
  3. I knew there was a reason to come back on here every so often.

    No chance, not with Putin in charge of the tournament! Some very ominous looks going on between him and the Saudi dude every time Russia scored.

    Only problem with Tripper is he's bound to give loads of fouls away.

    Players who never quite made it

    Brian Clough scored 251 goals in 274 appearances at club level, albeit in the second tier of the English Football League. He won a mere two caps, and retired at 29 through an unrecoverable playing injury. There are also a number of our own from the Premier League winning team who were excellent for us but never really made it at international level; Chris Sutton (1 cap), Stuart Ripley (2 caps), Jason Wilcox (3 caps), Tim Sherwood (3 caps), Tim Flowers (11 caps)... Any of those in their prime would be starters in today's national team!
  8. This? Also suggests Erhun Oztumer and Kieffer Moore.

    Think you need to get your facts straight: Ross County relegated on 28th September 2017.
  10. We paid an undisclosed fee for Downing in January, but given his contract MK Dons was coming to an end this summer, I imagine it won't have been a huge amount. Maybe around £100K-£200K. Downing was very good during his loan spell, but he definitely took a dip in form around Christmas time - nothing compared to the awful Ward, though! Since then Downing has been steady enough. He got us through our tough defensive struggle when few thought he would, and I'm happy with him as backup.

    New Kits

    If it dilutes the back-of-shirt sponsor, I'm all for a squiggle.

    All stems from the view that certain people don't want to sign players from certain pro-leagues, completely forgetting that we've currently got one of our best in Mulgrew from there. It's not just snobbery, it's stupidity. Maybe we should only sign players from the Prem and Championship - oh wait, about 40 other teams probably have the pick of that crop ahead of us.

  14. @J*B Is it worth setting up a Transfer Links-only thread? @chaddyrovers could take care of it!

    Depends on the size of the population of the country. Scotland is small, so it deserves two points for every real point.
