Scotland were murder when he went off as they didn't have him shouting to press higher. Just sat in and invited pressure. Plus McBurnie is utter dung.

Yep meaningless, plenty time for that when he has 10 club games under his belt. 

Better to get it under your belt when the opportunity is there as you never know the future.

 

Im pretty sure he won’t be playing on Tuesday v Kazakhstan now he’s got the milestone.

Not impressed one bit with Clarke. He was hired as someone who can supposedly cope with all the injuries and call-offs and build and motivate a close-knit team from who's left and make poorer players better. No evidence of that at all. Not a single one of the players he's brought in has made a difference and virtually no improvement from the way we played under McLeish. He also came across as very weak with the Tierney situation.

 

Greg Taylor at LB is ridiculous. Has he even played this season? This was a game to bring in youngsters for a meaningless but still competitive fixture. Hickey is our third best Scottish LB, no question. He can even fit in at RB. Tierney clearly has no interest in being back-up to Robertson so Hickey should be brought in asap, even only to learn from Robertson. Hickey and Fraser down the left would be a decent partnership IMO.

 

Is there some sort of rule that Scotland can't play teenagers in the first team?

 

Naisy meanwhile has to be a Scotland manager in waiting if he gets into coaching. We need someone who really loves his country and wants to do well, unlike the shitebags like Fletcher, Tierney and all the others who pick and choose when they turn up for Scotland.

How does independence get into a football forum? Off you all go to the Shed to argue about that.

 

Haven't read the whole thread, but it seems relevant in an international football context. There aren't many other pretendy countries like ours playing in competitions.

No saying its no a proud thing 

 

I'm saying he owes his club who pay his wages to call it a day. A club that rehabilitate him every time he goes away for the national team and picks up another injury. We pay him every week But feck Hearts mon the Scotland and being captain but coming off injured. I'm as passionate as any other Scot but it's time for him to call it a day and prolong his club career 

Not arguing but he deserved this and enhances Hearts reputation.

That's how it seemed to me too, just got deeper as the second half went on. Scotland should never be playing on the counter against Cypress, surely.

Nothing to argue about. The people voted No. Not sure why folk still go on about it.

Scotland are absolute shit. It was Cyprus ffs. How proud can you be?

Very. A Hearts player was captain. You are correct Scotland are poor but there are no easy games now. I was around when Scotland qualified for tournaments and England didn’t. However, just like Hearts I support them through thick and thin.

The minute Naismith went off the entire performance from Scotland dropped. He has such a positive influence on the players around him. I really hope he's not injured and it was just a precaution.

 

Christie is above and beyond the rest of the team. I'd argue he's our best player above Fraser and Robertson. McGinn also played well. Also thought Jack played very well.

 

McKenna was terrible. Vastly overrated. Aberdeen should sell him while they can. Can't believe he plays for Scotland. Both Devlin and Porteous are Decent SPL players but they are not good enough to be included in the Scotland squad.

 

I actually like Gallagher from Motherwell however I'm hoping that once Halkett and Souttar have returned from injury they will be given a chance to play for Scotland.

McKenna has been an absolute disaster for Scotland. Has Berra retired? He's been very ropey for us bit even then I'd feel safer with him in defence against the likes of Cyprus.

 

Another 10 players with Naisy's attitude, never mind ability, and we'd qualify for every tournament.

Great thread. Hearts fans rounded on for being worried that our best player might be injured and now screeds of wankers that can't turn off politics for 3 ****ing seconds. Great thread.

Well said.

 

That’s the crux of it.

That's the start of a team coming together then.

 

Long way to go to get a good 11 though.

Meaningless?  It was his 50th cap that gets him into the HOF FFS!

 

Must be some hall of fame that. Endless international achievements.

Reports would suggest it is not serious, let's hope so, and his next game is hopefully our next game and that he is fine for that, he cannot be wrapped in cotton wool though, and would not want to be. If he now chooses to concentrate on club football after reaching his milestone I would be fine with that, we cannot take away the possibility of injury whoever that is for, but he is a footballer, a very proud one at that, and he needs to be playing football.

Something nice to look back on and tell the grandkids about though isn't it? Naismith has a career and ambitions like everyone else. One of his was to get 50 caps and qualify for a tournament with Scotland. Whelan is the same for Ireland in wanting to get to the Euros. They are both only our players because we agreed to help them achieve their ambitions.

You can mock. But for folk who grew up watching Scotland from the late 70s on we were the kings of qualifying. Up there with Brazil at one point for qualifying for the most finals in a row (five). What we did when we got there is a different story 😥

Speaking following Scotland’s European Championship qualifying victory, Clarke confirmed that the substitution was already planned. 

He said: “Steven is fine. 

“The substitution was already going ahead [before the injury]. In my head it was pre-planned. 

“He was shouting at me that he was fine and didn’t want to come off but it was something that I had in my mind to do anyway.”

Naismith has missed much of the 2019/20 season due to injury and only returned to the Hearts starting line-up last weekend in the 5-2 win over St Mirren. His last Scotland appearance was in a 3-1 defeat to Portugal last October.

Clarke had named the Hearts striker captain for the day as he picked up his 50th cap for the national team as they registered a second win in a row.

What was the injury? 

Don't think there is an injury. It said on the radio that he was annoyed at being subbed and wanted to play on. He was taken off as a precaution. Hope that's the case!

Whelan’s already played in 2 Euros does he really need a 3rd!

As he’s just played his first full game in months, he shouldn’t have been risked. 
 

Until he is fully fit and managed a run of games he should be nowhere near the Scotland squad.

Sorry, but the more game time he gets, the better for Hearts. We can't wrap him up in cotton wool just in case he gets injured, and that was my thoughts when he got subbed.

Incredible to see how the whole scotland team downed tools when captain Naismith went off and wasn’t bollocking them😂 Inspirational captain and I’m afraid robertson can step aside now and give him the armband.

 

As for risking injury that’s football and hearts players get injured getting out of bed these past couple of seasons so doesn’t make a difference either way. I’m happy to see him scotland captain and he’s desperate to play at Euro 2020.

Yep, me too, particularly as Scotland are an even worse watch than Hearts ( :ermm: well, maybe ) at the mo'! Yes, I want Scotland to win every game and, yes, I'll watch a Scotland game and cheer them on if I'm in or around a pub that's showing it at the time, but over the years the GFA have successfully killed-off any real passion or commitment that I ever had for actively following the national team.

Thank goodness Naismith and the other Hearts players who get into the various Scotland squads think the opposite.

It's no great secret his body is breaking down and yet he's turning out for a meaningless Scotland match. The club should have stepped in here. 

I’m English so couldn’t care less how scotland do but even I can see how this game is anything but meaningless.  It’s crucial you build some momentum and confidence ahead of the play offs and winning today and next week is the last chance you have.

We were pretty impressive in the 90s too - we qualified for WC 90, Euro 92, Euro 96 and WC 98 - only missing one major tournament in the whole decade. Breaks my heart that we haven't made one since (though we've been painfully close a few times).

 

We really do seem to have lost our way recently - we have no credible central defenders and no credible strikers. What's really annoying is how many good players Wales seem to have.

Momentum for a 1 off match over 4 months away?
