    Re: Time Up For Strachan

    That was embarrassing from Strachan. You only have to point to Barcelona to kill that line of defence. Oh yes, apparently the Dutch are the tallest nation in the world, or close to it, and they have failed to get to the last two tournaments. Scotland are not going to Russia because they are not good enough, not because they are not tall. It's the sort of guff that Mourinho would come out with during a surly spell.

    It is Gordon's way of distracting away from the team.......and the daft press fell for it once again.

    Re: Time Up For Strachan

    I know why he, and every other manager does it. You do need to have a semblance of truth to it otherwise you just look ridiculous. He looked ridiculous the other night.

    He hasn't got a fantastic pool of players to choose from and if he did go, I cannot see a natural successor in sight.

    In short, if you want to have any chance of qualifying for Euro 2020 then you need to keep hold of him.
    I agree he's turned them around and was close to getting them to the play offs, although the start did for them. At the same time, you have to wonder about Coleman at Wales and whether after the Euro's last year and getting so close (but didn't play well last night) he'll decide he's taken them as far as he can

    I can't believe that a nation with a football history and pedigree like Scotland would even consider someone such as Sam Allardyce.



    Oh......hang on....aye OK..

    Re: Time Up For Strachan

    First thing that needs addressing from the new manager is getting rid of Craig Gordon.

    Shortly followed by Berra, Mulgrew, Bannan, and Forrest.

    Not really sure who I would want as the new national manager and to be fair not sure I'll even care.
