What a joke! 35 minutes with Northern Ireland down to 10 men and a penalty saved. Why is it in Scotland that the teams we support play worse against teams with 10 men? When did we last win a friendly anyway? Was it against Estonia or Trinidad, I can't remember.
I just thought that McLeish didn't tinker with the team selection cos we spent 5 years giving players experience and now we have Burley who is ignoring players like McCulloch, Maloney, Whittaker, Teale, Hughes, etc. Are these players going to be in the next squad? How is Whittaker going to start the match if he isn't established yet? Better still give me one reason why Alexander is a better player than Whittaker?
Also, why was Darren Barr given a cap tonight? When is he ever going to get a game for Scotland in the years to come, ahead of Dailly, Weir, Caldwell, McManus, Berra, etc. Even Broadfoot and Wilkie should have got a call up more than Barr.
Today we just lacked something. If I had to put a word on it i'd say we are tactically inept. Our set pieces are attrocious. Even Alex McLeish knew how to dismantle Ukraine with good set pieces, all Burley uses for set pieces is pass out to the wing and if in doubt, pass it back to the goalkeeper.
