That defence is an utter shambles.

Halkett and Souttar both not selected is quite incredible.

I am assuming Souttar is not quite fit enough to make it but Halkett would be the best centre back in that squad.

Halkett's got to be on the radar, but worth remembering this is only his 2nd season in the top division and centre backs normally need to show long term consistency before making the international breakthrough.

As well as Halkett has done he is playing for a team that concedes cheap goals at the bottom of the division. it's not the best starting point for selection.

Tbf Cooper, Palmer and even Hanley have all had good years. Mulgrew though! Id rather see new blood.

 

Hopefully he drops out when Souttar is back. Mckenna obv to be back too

 

Had wondered if Mikey Johnston might get a shout. Above Russel and Philips imo.

 

Glad Snoddy back

I assume people are joking expecting Halkett to be selected? I am no Hanley or Mulgrew fan but thinking Halkett would have a chance of selection for his first cap in an inexperienced squad over those 2 plus Cooper, with the form Hearts are in, is bizarre. If Halkett, Berra and Souttar fancy themselves as Scotland defenders then it’s about time they got their act together and start shutting teams out, and getting Hearts up that table. If they do that they’ll have a chance of getting caps come the new year. At present, our defence is anything but solid.

If he's going to pick on last year's form. Might as well just pick Halkett.

 

Ahh...but Hanley was Player of The Year in England...so that explains that ****ing tragedy of a footballer.

Halkett has played 100 games for Livingston. Hanley has played 200 combined games for Blackburn, Newcastle and Norwich. He’s now playing in the EPL. Maroon tinted spectacles perhaps?

When did Hanley have a good year ? 

 

I'd be surprised if the clown has ever had a good game. He is utter shite. With that arse playing for Norwich just watch the number of goals they ship and get them nailed on for relegation.

Halketts played 3 league games and souttars Injured. 

Give them a chance to get it together.

He's also been utter shite in a Scotland Jersey pretty much every time.

Paterson is only just back from injury and not fully fit yet. Halkett is only 6ft, I wonder if that counts against him?

Jodami's point. That applies to Killie, just as much, or even more than us currently. 

 

I don't expect Halkett selected. Not yet. He should've been last year. But if Clarke's going to continue along the same lines of picking friends of the family, despite shite form...then more of the same Strachan/McLeish shite awaits. Hanley & Mulgrew. Is that the summit of Scottish talent? 

 

Naismith shouldn't even be picked for this either.

Yeah that’s what’s worrying me, not that two our defenders are missing especially when one of them is still injured.

My team would be:

 

                                 Marshall

 

O'Donnell    Cooper    Hanley*      Robertson(c)

 

                   McTominay    McGinn

 

Fraser                    Naismith                Christie

 

                              McBurnie

 

*should be Halkett!

 

Either that or bring in Russell or Forrest for McBurnie and swap them with Naismith to lead the line. McBurnie hasn't been great for us but seems to be doing well at club level. 

 

We won't be good enough for Belgium but really need a result against the Russians.

Maybe, I agree he does need to play more on a successful team, but ****ing Hanley. 

 

He reminds me of Willie falconer, but a defender.

Mulgrew playing for Wigan. Anyone having a dig at Hearts' defence atm, go have a wee peek at Wigans' rock solid league position & goals against record.

 

Mulgrew is in for the banter. Just as Strachan once proclaimed. 

 

Scotland squad continues with the embarrassment.

Yes that’s basically what I’ve said, they need to get it together before there’s any justification in calls for them to get Scotland call ups 😂 Hearts can’t even keep clean sheets against east fife or Cowdenbeath I wouldn’t be chucking any of our defenders in against 2 world class international sides. Least of all uncapped halkett.

They are pretty much among the best Right and left back available options we have, I’ve no issue with their selection. Their selection is of no relevance to Halkett or any other CHs. I’m expecting Liam Palmer and Robertson to be the starting full backs, although O’Donnell has more caps, Palmer is playing better at a higher level. 

 

Re Hanley Mulgrew yes that is the summit of our experienced defenders. If Berra had a good start to the season he’d have had every chance of getting in that squad. Same for Naismith that’s why he is in - the squad is terribly inexperienced.

Let's all celebrate like **** & have a go at his glass knees again, should he injure himself on Scotland duty? Because that's exactly what'll happen on here. That little rhat Tierney had no problems slinking out Scotland matches, under the guise of tiredness or injury...only to miraculously recover for the next OF or Cup game, for example.

 

Naismith's fault(if can call it that) is that he's more professional than that to say "no thanks, I need to get my fitness & club form back up." Griffith's has played as much this season, is more of a goal threat, & has enough experience.

 

Clarke's stubbornness in selecting players irrespective of form will become more prevalent. Nothing to change. The side is a piss-take & will continue that way.
