Disagree. Think he's a good player in the Scottish League. Not been hyped as much as other people in years gone by. 

 

Like a few Celtic players,  run out of gas. Badly needs a break

A fine defeat for Scotland. A lot better than many were expecting.

 

Move on to our next defeat by a corrupt nation, with satisfaction.

Just an observation but Craig Levein achieved a better result in his last game for Scotland in Brussels.

When was the last time Scotland got an unexpected victory? We seem to always lose games we are expected to - and also some we are expected to win.

 

in short we are humpty regardless of who we have as a manager.

How does that explain his dismal performances in most Scotland games, never ever better than average, earlier in the season?

Because the Scottish game isn't exactly the best?

He may well do, but I'd guess the fix won't be easy. We won't play an awful lot of teams at that level very often, so the starting point is getting back to competing with teams at a lower level. The gulf in class/ability was relatively obvious, I'm not sure if Belgium can improve on what they can put on the park but unfortunately I'm not sure if Steve Clarke can either, only time will tell.

Could lose every game and the season ticket would still be money well spent.

For my money wee Taylor, McTominay and McLean probably did as well as anyone. McKenna is not a lot different to the much maligned (at this level) Berra and McGregor has played no part in either of last two games. McGinn and others get slagged and hooked because they get on the ball and take chances, McGregor plays no part in our defensive play and no part in the rare attacking moves. Will always get a solid 7 in the tabloid ratings cause he never does anything (wrong).  That we only lost 0-3 to such a revered team playing with ten men is to the credit of the others

Unfortunately the good enough keep picking and choosing when they play for Scotland and there are no alternatives to the ones who aren't good enough.
