Sums up the state of the Scottish game if someone leaves our Premier league to go to Fleetwood Town!
It does rather sum up the lack of money beneath the main city clubs and the huge disparity that that creates - especially with the top two. Besides…for players out of contract at St Johnstone and having played in the double cup winning season (and in Rooney‘s case scored the winning goal in both finals) and in Europe this last season, what’s to stay at St Johnstone for. Might as well give it a go elsewhere in a club that has ambitions to succeed in League 1.

Not sure they'll be able to sustain the effort. However we don't look as if we can take advantage of anything at the moment.
They won’t need to with a back three that makes the keystone cops look brilliant.

This could end up embarrassing.

Why Clarke insists on McTominay in defence is beyond me, he isn’t even that good in his own position.

And Hanley and Cooper? Nuddy photos of Clarke being kept somewhere.

It was not a fun watch. Seemed to be an awful lot of ‘after you Claudenko’ by our midfield.

Anyway.

Overall think the squad is largely much stronger (central defence though…🙄) and thought the young lad Hickey did well. Not heard of him before and at only 19yrs old quite a challenge for his first competitive Scotland game.

And so we move on.

Let's give some credit to Ukraine.
I watched the game last night and Ukraine simply had more quality. The classy moments in the game always came from them. Scotland had chances but didn't take them, they couldn't afford that luxury. The crowd pulled them through in the last 15 minutes and gave them a chance, helped by a dodgy keeper, but ultimately it wasn't to be. No shame in losing to a better team.
