    Correcting myself here, 5 wins. .......still think he should go

    That's the point, he didn't.

    He was happy playing players from the English lower leagues that nobody had heard of and weren't getting a game for their clubs, while ignoring the free scoring Griffiths amongst a number from up here. Finally he caves to the pressure and a winning run ensues.

    Re: Time Up For Strachan

    I'd stick with him - if he wants to stay.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    Chris Evans - Where did the saying "Scot Free" come from.

    Re: Time Up For Strachan

    I think it’s right that he goes now but a spirited end to the campaign means I wouldn’t moan about it if he stayed on. Very disappointing performance last night though and he must take some blame for that.

    all very well ditching Strachan ,BUT, who is around to replace him?
    common sense is so rare it should be classed as a super power.

    Re: Time Up For Strachan

    Think you have to look at where Scotland were before Strachan took over, he has picked them up brushed them down and made them into a team that only missed out on qualification by a whisker. That is way better than you have been for years .

    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.

    Re: Time Up For Strachan

    aye - but we Scots are genetically inferior i.e. we are a bunch of titches. Mind you if you look at the average height of Celtic circa 1967 - I bet they weren't a bunch of giants - though there was oodles and oodles of skill in every inch of every player. I mean - OK - Jimmy Johnstone was 5'2" - but I didn't realise that Bertie Auld was only 5'6"...
