    Scott McKenna - Scotland

    Hopefully a more positive thread to reflect on following the recent turgid posts.

    Rumours are that Scott McKenna will be called up on Monday for the Scotland squad to face Costa Rica and Hungary.
    Hopefully, he gets the opportunity to play alongside Souttar and we get a chance to see a potential future CB pairing.
    Add in McTominay and it would be good to see a more youthful Scotland team get a chance.

    I'd add in Paterson at Right Back, with Robertson on the Left. Tierney could play left midfield (he practically does anyway with Celtic).

    Well done Scott if indeed you are called up.

    I've had a diminishing interest in the national team in recent years but would be good to see McKenna in there and a partnership with Souttar could be the way ahead for years to come - they've experience of playing together in the U21 team so I'd punt them both in together in these friendlys and see how they fair - the other central defence options are pretty poor.

    Lot of fuss being made over this McTominay chap - never heard of him or seen him play so will reserve judgement. However, if McLeish had to go and beg him to play for Scotland rather than England, I find that quite embarrassing - lets have a team of guys who are actually proud to play for Scotland and not just using us as a route into international football because they know they'll never be good enough to play for England. I'm convinced that's one of the reasons we've been so gash over the last 15-20 years.

    Good news and I would probably give Souttar a go in the friendlies as well.

    I got it wrong in another thread about McTominay. I thought he had represented England at age level. It would appear he hasn't. His old boy is from Glasgow and he says he considers himself Scottish so that is fair enough for me. Much better than that farce with Scotland and England over Celtic's latest wonderkid.

    The shining light of this season for sure.

    I'd expect him to pick up POTY, YPOTY and GOTY, he deserves the lot. It will be difficult to beat his goal v Kilmarnock.

    Agree with all the above. It is now time to get the youth in there. Less Berra, Hanley, Martin, Greer and whatever other dross and more McKenna.

    This is even better news!!! He has been very solid so far this season and he is a joy to watch in defence! Good news for the club and we can command a big fee for him, should anyone want him.

    If McLeish has any ambition of taking Scotland to a major finals then he has to be ruthless, get rid of the dead wood from previous campaigns and start building for the future now. To that end McKenna should be in there. Age and inexperience should be no barrier.

    Agreed. Berra, Mulgrew, Morrison, baith Fletchers, Chris Martin et al should be told to do one.

    Shinnie handed him the armband when he was subbed against Accies in the league game a few weeks ago.

    Great news.

    Goes to show what can happen when you play one of our youth players (even if it's out of desperation).

    I'd also add that I have no issues with Berra playing. He's Scottish (even if he's an embra weirdo type) and he's playing well in the premier league. It would be good for someone like McKenna to play with an experienced and consistent defender.

    I’m not usually the one to turn every thead into McInnes bashing, but what good does he think he is doing the team making McLean captain?

    .
    (Couldn’t help yourself, could you?)
    How about a bit of praise for the manager convincing him to extend his contract.

    Your making an argument for McKenna not to play as McLeish would likely pair up Soutter with Berra given they have a club connection as well.

    It’s friendlies, time to give youth a chance

    So don’t then. Join mason et al on all the other threads moaning about the manager and leave one upbeat thread about one of our players doing well.

    Why don’t you f’uck off.

    He should have been captain when Shinnie was out.

    That upbeat enough for you?

    The East Neuk was a hole





    Edit.... of course you maybe don’t mean the pub.

    If you’re a fifer then I refer you to the top of the page

    He's a bear of a laddie. I'd like to see him start smashing players.

    Leave me out it. I wasn’t going to comment at all in it, seeing as the OP couldn’t even get through the opening sentence without being a throbber

    But aye, we’ll done Del getting him to extend his contract.
