He is actually playing quite well recently imhoBecause we live in a country that embraces failure ran by fkwits who haven't a clue about football , mosty countrys promote their up and coming stars and the media laud them at every turn
Our media are waiting on Ryan jack getting into the scotland squad then he willl be the next best thing after the cabbage patch runt
The whole of europe promote their up and coming players at every chance even the epl ,yet were still stuck with the brigadoon mob
The Lisbon lions situation says it all if you look at how many caps they got for their country and how long it took them to even get inducted into the sfas joke of a hall of fame you'll see why this rancid country is still stuck in the dark ages
I dont think scotland players are that bad, they just aren't enough getting regular games at high enough level or style to cope in the cut thrust of high end footballMaradonna is another but many more. Talent is the issue in most positions other than defence.
I've watched some boring EPL games this season, it's ridiculous that average players in England, are touted as being $10 Million+ playersMy chelsea supporting mate has falling out of love with the english game and I'm sure there will be alot like him. He says there is no passion from the players. They dont fight for the jersey or their team. They are more worried about their image, or picking up an injury, than what they do for their club. He believes the main focus for players in england is their next big money move. Nothing else matters.
There are exceptions. But if you look at the top players all over the world they are built. Strachan talked about this too and he's right. Physicality aligned to higher levels of technical ability is the norm now. Christie is a classic example of how getting a better physicality helped him move up a level. I'm hoping young Mickey does the same to go with his brilliant technical ability.Tell that to Jinky or Messi
