 Two left feet
Topic Originator: Mario  
Date:   Thu 22 Nov 09:54

Scotland have two excellent left backs in Tierney and Robertson, and we were similarly blessed with two top class right footed full backs in McGrain and Jardine some decades ago.
And the same selection problem then as now, with Danny as he said recently just having to learn to kick with the weaker foot to fill the left back role.
That worked out quite well, but hae ma doobts.. could a crash course in rightbootednes solve the current dilemma?

Barry Douglas ... another excellent left back ... think he's only out the set up cos of Tierney and Robertson ... and think Liam Cooper should also be in with a shout of a call up ... and yes am a Leeds fan :)

Does Cooper even want to play for Scotland. Don't believe for a second he's been repeatedly missed out with some of the defensive cover or lack thereof that we've had recently

Barry Douglas is very unlucky he's playing in an era with Robertson and Tierney. Going to end up with very little caps.

To be fair, if they were as great as we say they are then they’d be able to play with both feet. The modern day football surely must be able to play in various positions with both feet. I don’t get it.

Pretty sure he was called up for a couple of sqauds and played, can't mind if it was under mcleish or Strachan though

and Zod ... think you'll find most footballers can play with both feet but usually are stronger on one ... my lads two footed but stronger with his left
