Amy Muir fine player that she is not in the WC squad
I stand corrected!Cheers mate. I watched it but don’t remember her.
Thanks Vinnie. Cheers mateI stand corrected!
Must have confused her someone else.
This was the name my other half wanted for our daughter.Wow. Surprised at that mate. She’s the first Erin I’ve heard of or known in Glasgow area who isn’t a jungle Jim.
Thank you Susie Dent.Erin is a Hiberno-English derivative of the Irish word "Éirinn". ... In this context, along with Hibernia, Erin is the name given to the female personification of Ireland, but the name was rarely used as a given name, probably because no saints, queens, or literary figures were ever called Erin.
As a large & loyal chunk of our support travel from Ireland, I claim 'Erin' for our queen!
Why didn’t you just call her Ulster?Seen as we're doing shout-outs to family members, my daughter is called Eireann. She wears that name with pride in Central Scotland as all of my grandparents or great-grandparents were from Co Antrim or Co Armagh. Erin and its various derivatives are definitely not confined to one side or the other.
Amy, although a good player, is miles off the Scotland team.Yes she is, played against England at weekend. I didn't see much of the game though. Muir was voted player of the month in the women's SPL I believe. I know I voted for her! There was a thread her on it.

TALENTED 15-year-old Erin Cuthbert’s super strike for Rangers Girls is voted the best in Scottish youth football.
SCHOOLGIRL Erin Cuthbert has been dubbed Little Miss Messi after hitting a wonder goal in a cup game.
In a summer of World Cup super strikes, the 15-year-old’s goal for Rangers Girls under-17s against Hibs has been voted the best in Scottish youth football.
Video of her incredible exploits – dribbling past a string of defenders before casually rolling the ball into the back of the net – has been a big hit online.
Now Erin, of Irvine, Ayrshire has been handed Youth Football Scotland’s Jamie Skinner Award, in memory of the tragic Hearts teenager who collapsed on the pitch and died last year.
Erin – who plays for Scotland at under-17 level – said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to win this award.
“It was 0-0 at the time and Hibs were all over us so when I got the ball 30 yards out I thought I’d try to make something happen.
“I nearly lost the ball on the edge of the box and when I finally did get a sight of goal, I thought about smashing it but ended up using the outside of my right foot instead.
“I had a mini-panic because it looked like it was going to miss but it hit the post and went in.”
Post by Youth Football Scotland.
Midfield ace Erin – a pupil at Greenwood Academy in Irvine – is a huge fan of Argentina star Messi.
Her dream is to follow the likes of Kim Little and Julie Fleeting into a career in football.
She said: “It’s always been my dream to be a professional footballer. There are no full-time ladies club in Britain at the moment so I’ll go to Spain, Germany, anywhere.
“I still come up against people who say I can’t be much good because I’m a girl and women’s football’s easy but it just makes me even more determined to reach my goal.”
Her parents Stephen and Jacqueline regularly travel to watch Erin play with Rangers’ senior ladies’ side and Scotland under-17s.
Stephen, 51, who won a schoolboy cap for Northern Ireland, said: “When she was little, I took her dancing because I thought that’s what girls wanted to do.
“She wasn’t interested so I started kicking a ball about with her and she was doing keepy-uppies in no time.
“She played in boys’ teams as she grew up – that toughened her up – then she signed for Rangers three years ago.”
Robert Wilson, of Youth Football Scotland, added: “Erin’s goal was a worthy winner and a fitting tribute to the memory of Jamie Skinner.
“People said at the time it was like watching Messi – the way she runs at players, drops her shoulder and the casual finish.”
On another note, who's funding "Glasgow City as they can't be that much money in women's football with next to no fanbase to speak of ?Was snapped up by Glasgow City (in their typical Rangers- and Celtic-like "snatch all Scottish talent"-manner ... and then left for Chelsea. One of the finest talents Scotland has.
No 28. Herman Munster.
Great read. I understand why some might not like the women’s game being ‘forced down their throats’ by the media (it is a free country so don’t watch), but don’t take it out on the players. They are football daft like the rest of us and often have to sacrifice a lot more than men to make it in any meaningful sense.Erin Cuthbert is destined to be one of the best women's players on the planet. Has always been head and shoulders above everyone from an early age and deserves every success that comes her way has worked so hard and dedicated herself to football. 100 per cent a bearette too is a bonus. Was far too good for Rangers Women FC I'm affraid.
