Since he left Blackburn his form has gone to shit. Gone from scoring a goal every two games to 1 in every 5 since he left. No idea of reason behind it.

Hornby has surely got to be good enough for the senior squad. We seem to take ages to give young players a chance in this country.

Nae Ferguson? McInnes taken him back to keep him away from any Tims in case he catches the covaids?

Agreement was that he would come back after Friday night's game and was never in consideration for this game

Team for tonight. Andy Considine gets 2nd cap and Ross McCrorie on the bench.

Pretty much the expected and I'm good with that for continuity, Jack for the injured Fleck and Taylor for the suspended Robertson. Bias obviously, but would have rather seen McCrorie instead of Jack but I guess the head goes with experience. And why is big Andy not captain since Robertson is suspended!!??

Good game, but still the czech's have too much of the ball. Fraser should have had his second. I do like Dykes, strong in the air and decent touch.

A bit fortunate to be up at the half, could easily be 2-2. Big Andy a bit fortunate not to give away a penalty, seen that easily given before.

Clarke has sorted out defending as a unit. We look like we can soak up pressure from good sides quite comfortably. Previously we would crumble as soon as the pressure was applied.

I'll comment on that at the end of the game! Think HT came at a good time, while we have had a couple of chances we're given them too much possession and I feel a czech goal was/is coming. Not overly impressed with our three in midfield, don't think the smallish Jack, McGinn, and McGregor are mobile or strong enough, plus getting bullied. I seriously think McCrorie would help with his physicality and size.

Poking a hornets nest here but Gallagher has been excellent again. He’s too good for Motherwell.

Let’s not kid ourselves, we could easily have lost 3 or 4-1 tonight and I don’t think that would have been unfair. It was backs against the wall for more or less the entire second half, and we even sat back in the first half. Talk about DM game management, it was a tough watch. They missed a bunch of good chances including two I consider sitters!

Still, great win and 6 out of 8. And a shutout. Think Gallagher and Considine have played their way into future squadS and no reason why big Andy can’t compete with McKenna for the left central spot.

The biggest compliment I can pay Clarke is that his team looks very much like Craig Brown's Scotland team. Very hard to beat.

McTominay at centre back and Fraser as a forward are good tactical decisions.

We don't even slightly miss Robertson. Or the tosser Tierney.

Two of the back five tonight play for Motherwell, one for Aberdeen. No way would previous managers have selected these players. They'd have gone for Glasgow based players who were half committed at best.

Played well tonight but rode our luck at times. Czechs should have scored and Dykes could have got a red for standing on player when he got booked. Thought Considine was brilliant again. As Gallagher said post match you would have thought it was his 50th cap not his second. McGinn and Fraser were top players for us with the rat cunt also playing well.

No Dykes was not a red card, it was an accident. Even yellow was harsh.

Never an accident, just a little petulant. You could tell by his reaction. Yellow card correct though, as he didn't put his weight on the boy. It wasn't dangerous.
