Ive spoke to a few guys this morning regarding their m.o.t.m yesterday, & i've heard Considine,O'Connor,Shinnie & Maddison mentioned   ;D

 :rofl:

They're obviously still drunk! Only one that deserved to be mentioned there was Shinnie. O'Connor had a poor game by his standards and Madisson never got going. I did enjoy a couple of heid first moments from Consi right enough  ;D

I agree about your other point, was ridiculous that they weren't on earlier, although I called for McGinn, Rooney and McLean to all be subbed, within seconds, Rooney scores  ;D

Tierney and Robertson now both out for 2 months due to injury, Shinnie surely the most obvious candidate to be called up to fill the gap for the England game.

So i think i'll lump my money on Strachan moving Grant Hanley to left back instead.

Nah it'll be Wallace despite virtually every Hun demanding he gets dropped as his performances have been honking week in week out. Strachan is almost reaching Macghoo levels of hatred here in chez Ten Caat

Not even in the squad again. What happened with Strachan? It's pretty obvious something must have occurred given the injuries and he's still not even in the squad.

I've no problems with not having any of our squad tainted with the indignity of getting shafted in one of those scotland squads at the moment.

I'd prefer it if the little smug cunt in charge came crawling looking for a left back once Wallace inevitably withdraws and he tells him to poke it.

Saying that, our manager doesn't think he's the best left back in our fucking squad so why on earth would he get picked there in an international squad?

Last season, when he was clearly the best left back in the country, I was livid for him. Now, since he's not playing there I can actually understand why that ginger midget hasn't picked him.

Agree with this, how can we expect him to be picked to play LB when he doesn't even play there for us. Don't normally agree with Strachan but he can't be faulted for this one.

Great stuff  :thumbsup:

Could also be taken as a bit of a positive indicator to help quell the fears of overly pessimistic fans - player decisions on extensions often rest on whether their mates are sticking around too...

What a fucking game from him yesterday! Think we look much better in center midfield with him as the clear holding mid. He has to be a Scotland cap this season, no excuse of him being a left back playing out of position any more. Yesterday he showed he's Scott Brown's replacement in the national team. The passion, energy, enthusiasm, leadership, plus he has the skill. Seems to be a real players captain too, very much a Scottish trait and I think it's a dis-service to the nation team to continue to exclude him. He makes those around him better too. Obviously I've red tinted spectacles on but who is better in center mid based on that performance? He's still relatively young and will get better too, contract extension definitely needed.
 
And while I'm being clearly biased, if Christie continues this form he needs to be in there too.

Think he needs a break. Due a suspension, how many game? Probably comes at the right time and needed, thought he was poor today but well done for not getting another booking.......or worse!
