Plus, playing loads of games for the u21’s isn’t exactly a compliment! Anyone half decent has made the move to the senior squad well before they’re able to break the record.
That's true in a country like Scotland, but to be fair it is a massive jump to the France full squad.
For context, Rangers are currently linked to a 23 year old Germany under 21 international, who is very good, but not as good as Toni Kroos.

But not for £10's of millions. Their player is a competent player who could improve elsewhere, the argument here is about the value that should be on him. Being an u21 top scorer isn't really a barometer. I'd challenge anyone, without Googling, to tell me any of the next 5 'top u21 scorers' are in history.
I'd also debate about the leap from u21 to full squad. I reckon France are far better at 'the journey' through from youth level to first team than Scotland are. Scotland tend to get them through to u21, they fall off the rails, then Scotland find someone with a Scottish granny to play instead, or hope there's a late developer somewhere.

I'm sure Scotland's top scorer at that level is Scott Booth, or maybe Jordan Rhodes.
Edouard is a good player though, and I'm glad to see him leave. It's even better that he's going for less than I think he is worth. They can't replace him like for like.

If we hear eff all from Celtic or Ange by the end of this week then it's storm the car park time. Team are back in pre-season in 8 days.

It was already a disgrace that we didn't have a manager in place for June 1 but this is just so far beyond that now.
That poster was laughing at and trying to ridicule anybody questioning it being Howe a few weeks ago. A couple of days later he was talking about heading to the car park, now it’s storming the car park.

Its the guy who Aberdeen had on loan last season, can't remember his name.

He was pish.

I was about seven years of age when I first started wondering where the huns were getting all that money from and what they were up to. It always seemed like there were stories aplenty waiting to be unearthed for our intrepid hacks. What a shame they were far too busy with their tongues up Murray’s arse and giving his tonsils a good clean. Now they’re balls deep in presenting alt-history and allowing Moon-howlers to rewrite jail sentences for assault as a grand conspiracy against the very club that was aided and abetted by the football authorities in an orgy of cheating.

You would have thought he'd have been too busy running away from creepy Uncle Sean to worry about Rangers.

Cliff Richard once played a concert at Honda FC’s Stadium in Japan and kept getting asked by some folk in the crowd to sing ‘itchyfanny’. Cliff was bewildered at these requests and says to the crowd “ I’ve never written a song called itchyfanny, how does it go?”. A Japanese fan in the crowd then starts singing “itchyfanny, how we don’t talk anymore”.
I’ll get my coat and prepare for my ban.
