Surely these players cant be part of our "terrible" youth set up? . . . .

 

Looking down that queue, the guy at the front has realised the potential of Brechin City at present. Now I don't want to be the harbinger of doom but I'm also not too impressed by U-19 NI or FI squads.

We always seem to have players in international squads then they get released later on.  In last year i can think of Bagshaw, Kelly, McVitie, Donald, Kiely and Strachan that we have binned.  Something wrong somewhere.

 

Most/all of these players are now playing in lower leagues (e.g. Peterhead, Montrose).

or © shouldn't have been brought into the AFC youth setup full stop.

Nae sure i understand what you are saying.  If deemed good enough to represent their country then must be something there but that something far too often turns out to be nothing and these players disappear. 

 

But if "shouldn't have been brought into the AFC youth setup full stop" then huge problem with our scouting (which most seem to acknowledge anyway).

That was what I was saying, but it sounds like there's something wrong at international level if they end up at Peterhead a year later.

Aye - Suprised any of our youngsters get call ups as most of the younger sides are run by old firm sympathisers who get job due to handful of games for one of gruesome twosome.
