If he can get results for Kilmarnock he can get results for Scotland, couldn't care less about the national team but we might get somewhere now

Moyes for the scum job then? I'm happy with that. He supports rangers aswell i think, so that will be amusing:))
He doesn’t really support Rangers though, does he?

He played for them.

At this moment in time I couldn't care less about the Scotland national team.

Steve Clarke is the right appointment though, if that article is correct.

It makes sense from Clarke as well. Since it’s a part time job. He can spend most of his time down in England with his family which has been the reason he wanted to leave killie Cos they live down south so he can now live down with them and just come back for the matches

Suits me just fine.
A fenian in charge of the national side while the ruling body is run for the benefit of Fenian FC.

Why would we want any of our players involved?
Not really about us though. Some of our players may see representing their country as an achievement and could be hindered regardless of ability.

A win win.

Good appointment for Scotland and we will no longer have to suffer him talking about us every other week.

Dents to teams all over the place...

Celtic have likely lost the best manager they will have for 20 years
Killie are about to be striped of the best manager they have had AND we are taking one of their better players.
Aberdeen have lost Shinnie

Every thing takes a step closer to winning a league.

What’s he done, other than at Kilmarnock, to make him a ‘very good football manager’?
Why does it have to be 'other than Kilmarnock'?. They're only the third club he's managed full-time and what he has done there is take a team that had 3 draws and 5 defeats in their first 8 league games and looked certain for relegation, and almost instantly made them virtually unbeatable.

If you are actually looking for an answer, I suppose I could mention that he guided West Brom to an 8th place finish in the Premier League, their best finish since 1981. He also took Reading to their first FA Cup semi-final in 88 years.

Wonder if he'll work out better than the last booze bag we had in charge. Just a shame he's another bitter guy that despite being a good manager will be forced down the route of ensuring he picks favourites and not the best players to play.

Embarrassing if Killie or shinnie are seen as barriers to us winning a league anyway.

We are a football team who play games of football agains other football teams....what they other teams do clearly does dictate on us winning leagues regardless of what is seen as "standards" etc.

Scotland can now safely lose every game from now on without the supporters or the media getting on their backs because there's none of our lot involved.

Poor 'Eck. No worse than Strachan and the media were desperate to keep that poison dwarf in a job.

If he can get Scotland to punch above their weight like he had Kilmarnock doing then we’ll have a better chance at qualifying for a tournament than we have for years.

Plus, more time for him to drink so he’ll be delighted.

Captain Broadfoot at CB incoming :rolleyes:

Scotland will become one of the worst countries world wide to watch with the 90s style defending and hoofing it away to f*ck.

Could argue we are going to lose our Top Goalscorer aswell tho swings in roundabouts

We have lost him for the past few weeks and handled it perfectly well - the dents both Celtic and Killie in particular are facing when it comes to loosing their manager are massive to them, and in turn to us.

He's probably a decent fit for the team the media always over rate the national team and see them as doing better than what they are capable off at least Clarke will be able to get them structured defensively

It's all in hindsight but Celtic and Kilmarnock could end up getting better than they were under different managers and we may miss Morelos greatly over the course of a season that scienario although unlikely is not impossible

Excellent, looking forward to Killie reverting to utter mediocrity once again.

Think he’ll be a decent appointment for Scotland, won’t be playing silky stuff but is also unlikely to go and get scudded by Kazakhstan and the like.

Celtic are our only competitors and also play against these teams/players. These little people at little teams should be of no significance to our title chances.

Probably the best candidate at this time. Can't raise any excitement for the Scottish team anymore sadly.

I think Willie Waddell was a better.manager for them, won the league, when us and to a lesser extent the Tim's and Dundee were strong
