    It's easy to take a side swipe at Scottish football. They've been going through a cycle of lesser quality players and their league has been devalued by the total dominance of two clubs.
    I wonder who's going to win the wildly exciting english league next year.....City, Chelsea or United.....again....and again.
    I wonder how the english supertalents are going to perform at the world cup?
    Glass houses and all that.

    I wouldn't be surprised at that Ian, but to be fair the problem is deeper seated IMO..we failed tp even qualify in 1974 & 78 ( plus a few after)when the majority of players were actually English, for my money the creative players have had the skills coached out of them.
    What's gone wrong in Scotland I haven't got a clue....when I was growing up a large number of the best players in all the English divisions were Scots. Whether it's just cyclical or not I don't know....Tbh I just don't know what's gone amiss.
