Difficult for me to say. No one really stands out. Maybe John Collins at a push but we've been mostly more of a team of average players since I've been watching Scotland. Hopefully that will change in the future.
Ally McCoist and John Collins - beyond that i'm struggling of think of many players i expected something good to happen from when i saw them take the pitch!
Defensively we've been slightly better of in the last 10-15 years. Andy Goram and Jim Leighton had many great games between them over the years. Paul Lambert in midfield and Richard Gough for a time (one of the best defenders at Euro 92 IMO but then he fell out with Craig Brown so didn't add to his 61 caps after 1993.)
(I can't really remember the players in much detail before about 1988- ish)
I remember that so well. It looked like it was going to be the first time we had ever in our history made it past the first round of a competition. It was a real sickner when Holland pulled the goal back that sent us out late on.
I could be really biased and say lots of brilliant Leeds players (Collins, Bremner, Lorimer, E.Gray, F. Gray, Harvey, Strachan) or choose Jinky, but no; the best for me was definitely Dennis Law: a pure genius on the ball and a real professional, even sending his beloved ManU down to the second division with a cheeky back flick and crying afterwards.
Didn't find a specific thread to talk about Celtic so I'll just start one. Feel free to merge it of course. How are the Dutch guys doing? From what I gather, Braafheid didn't play that much and Hooiveld neither.
All Rangers chat in here! :thumbsup:
Really looking forward to the new season. We've managed to keep the bulk of our championship winning side and have managed to add some real quality.
Celtic have all sorts of problems. Lennon looks completely out his depth at this level. Ross County, Braga...
A new team will enter the Eircom League in the 2nd division in place of defunct Kilkenny City. They'll be playing less than 20 mins from where I live. Hope to see a few games. Hope they can develop properly with the right support as the Fingal region is the quickest grown area of Ireland, and...
