Thought it might be interesting to check out the form of some of our scottish international players with a view to upcoming games:-

Goal keepers

Craig Gordon- Doing OK with Hearts will probably keep the Jersey.

Jon McLaughlin- surprisingly good showings with Rangers, deserves a chance with Scotland.

Defenders

Nathan Patterson- getting a game now and looking good with Everton.

Grant Hanley- still with Norwich. Fairly solid, not spectacular.

Scott McKenna- doing OK with Nottingham Forest but may be struggling a bit in the Premiership.

Andy Robertson- in good form with Liverpool.

Keiron Tierney- playing again with a very in form Arsenal and looking good.

Midfield

Scott McTominay-permanent fixture with Man utd and playing well.

John McGinn- shadow of his previous self. Looking very ineffective in a struggling Aston Villa team.

Calum McGreggor- would like to see how he does against stiff European competition. But seems in good form.

Billy Gilmour- out in the cold at Chelsea. May be hungry enough to play well for Scotland but not looking good.

Stuart Armstrong- not many starts for Southampton. Very disappointing start to the season.

Forwards

Che Adams- playing well and scoring a few for Southampton.

Ryan Christie- with a struggling Bourmouth team now. Don`t think he`s getting much game time.

Lyndon Dykes- still in the championship with QPR I think. Haven`t heard much about him.

Worryingly , Tierney is not first choice now and McGinn is struggling….not sure why. Cooper can’t get a start at Leeds. Hendry is out of favour at Bruges…not that I rated him.
Dykes is a donkey

Souttar? Injured as usual ?

I have always thought that Turnbull should get a start. Hickey is a good un.

As soon as Scotland seem to be getting a team together it all falls apart with players being injured or loss of form/place.

No squad depth….. we will always be also fans unfortunately.

The only time we turn up is a night game under the lights for some strange reason. Keep an eye on upcoming fixtures for confirmation of this bizarre phenomenon.

It also looks like Jack Hendry has just joined Italian club Cremonese on loan from Bruges.

And Ryan Fraser looked reasonably sharp for Newcastle against Liverpool on Wednesday night.

McGinn plays a different more defensive role at villa. Villa fans have been split for ages now about whether he should be in the starting line up… even when he was doing great for Scotland.
The feeling is he’s not good enough as a creative player for the top half of the EPL, runs out of steam in the last part of the games and wastes a lot of passes trying Hollywood stuff.
Think they feel all he really brings is his character to the dressing room and that’s really about it at the level they aspire to be
If you’re interested, their forum is called villatalk and there’s a page for mcginn… reading it is quite amusing as he goes from the best player in the world (championship) to starting well in the prem for first few games, to not cutting it as they start to build a prem level team

McGinn was outstanding for a while and Man Utd were seriously interested in him. His form tailed off in the middle of last season but before that was very often the best player on the park. Maybe he`s got another purple patch in him yet.

I heard a Villa fan on the radio last week saying making McGinn captain was the reason for their current woes! I couldn`t quite follow the logic but I think he was saying he wasn`t vocal enough and they needed someone like Mings as captain but he`d fallen out with Gerrard.

McGinn was talked up too much by the media. He was better when he was playing under the radar. But he has certainly been excellent for Scotland.
