As it say's, after an SFA board meeting today it's been agreed he stays on as manager.

So long as Regan remains in that job, nothing is a surprise.
Strachan is only part of the problem. It goes far deeper than him. There is no development of younger players. There is no vision for the future full stop.

Say everything you need to know about the foresight and ambition of the twats that run the game up here.

The vast majority of Tartan Fannies who's team are used to getting pumped home and away will blindly follow on.

Barrie you are playing well and are called up to travel with the squad.

No I have changed my mind you are dropped.
Lee you are called up.
Lee you won't be playing.

Lee mate, injury crisis want a game?


It's all about motivation, treating people with respect and making them want to play for you.
When you treat people like shiiit, that's the sort of results you get.
He stays as the results will create a cloud and someone else to blame for the state of Scottish football.
Not Rhegan, not Petrie, not liewell. Shiiit manager to blame and cover our arses.

It's the sensible thing to if we're being honest. There are over 4 months until the next game of football, and no obvious choice to replace him. If someone comes available (Moyes?) in that time then I fully see Strachan leaving. And if they don't then he will continue until a better option does come up. The idea that a Ferguson or a Walter would come back and risk blotting their record with this mob of overpaid underachievers is fanciful at best. What was the alternative? McColl? McGhee?

Strachan is picking the wrong players but the issues with Scottish Football go way above him and are deep rooted in the SFA & SPFL.

Both organisations need disbanded along with every single person involved running them and replaced with one footballing body which is run by football men.

I take it Scotland are the only country in the world that produce managers. IMHO there should not be one single Scotsman in a position of power anywhwre within the SFA.

It's not sensible. The man is incapable. Get shot of him now and gives us four months to find an able replacement.

If an able replacement comes up and he stays in place, then it will be utterly shambolic to remove him after keeping him on and not playing another game. But A shambles wouldn't be a surprise

Rhegan was the Trojan Horse, Petrie and others were enthusiastic fellow placemen, there to push the pro tim agenda (and put the boot into Rangers interests) and most of the rest were largely useful idiots who followed like sheep. Feck them all.

How many lose interest and pass for the 4 home games ?

England game will be full but the other three might be cumulatively around 30K short x ticket price. (lets say 20 notes = 600K)

Strachan is nowhere near the worst man at the SFA.

devilman
17-11-2016, 20:43
Hardly a surprise - however, as above, the SFA is ****ed regardless of manager. Strachan is useless but I don't think he is intentionally trying to bring Scottish football down - he's just rubbish. The SFA people like Reagan are actively trying to ruin Scottish football.

The SFA needs cleared out and Strachan just be on his way at that point. He doesn't deserve the job but he'd just be replaced by someone equally as poor or even worse.

Disappointing , as someone with fond memories of big matches in 1970s and real Hampden roar ill always be a fan of the national team after all I'm Scottish whether I like it or not. It a weak decision and opportunity lost to build for next euros with young blood and Cheney proved during close season friendlies that he will not give them a chance.

GaryBolan
17-11-2016, 21:04
His starting line up against England gave me a wee bit of hope, we were outclassed but he finally showed he's prepared to change things. Still a long way to go but who the **** else are we going to get to take that job?

On one hand it sums up my feelings, on the other it perpetuates the Celtc-ness of the authorities and the game in this country.

I fear it will be a long time before we get a fair crack of the whip in this country, if we ever do again. These scum have their talons into everything.

As long as the Mhankie interests are put first by the SFA and SPFL, then the game is fooked up here. Scottish football is at its worst ever at domestic, European and national side level and the compliant mhedia still says nothing.

While I agree with the sentiment, neither Wallace or Mackay have been good enough for Rangers this season and have not deserved international recognition.

Wallace is rightly third choice as two players are far better than him in his position.

Mackay is even further away than third choice.

OK - our standard of player is poor.

But, I think any manager of any national side should be punted after 2 failed qualifying campaigns. Simple as that. Unless there is a plan in place for the future. But, for us, there clearly isn't.

Mackay is even further away than third choice.

Broadly agree with most of this, particularly about Mackay, whose form has been poorer this season.

However, I had Wallace as Scotland's MotM at Wembley. Pretty harsh to say he should be third choice when you consider the dross that Chesney is capping on regular basis.

Anyway, it's not something that keeps me up nights, these days. Not after the way the SFA treated us when we were being defrauded, raped and battered almost to death in front of the very eyes of the baying mhob. So, carry on Chesney. Should be good for a few more right laughs before our final dismal failure to qualify, again, is confirmed

Did you hear Mark McGee on Sportsound? I'll be here for the England game. You (journalists) want a story but we're not giving you one. Gordon and me are staying. Just shows how low the job has got when you get comments like this. It was a chance to let a new manager develop a new team for the next Euro tournament, chance lost, I think it is partly to do with not wanting to pay compensation to Chesney, and they probably don't have a suitable candidate.
