17% of the squad play in Scotland, 29% born in England.

Craig Levein is turning us into a shite version of Team GB.

Goodwillie in squad despite having charge looming just shows him up for being the two faces, hypocritical bellend many of us know he is.

He is killing our national team, its more like a club side.

Don't even start me on Gilks.

Lets be honest, there are currently about 4 players in the SPL who deserve to be in the squad. We should be thankful the majority of our squad are not playing in the SPL.

Agreed.

Other than Jamie Murphy, there isn't another player playing the SPL that should be considered on current form. There are a handful of players that could step up if they continue to improve, but most of them are in the under 21 squad.

Cammy Bell should be in ahead of Gilks.

The stat was just a comparison, the main part of the post that is sickening, is that 29% of the squad are English.

Phillips turned down England and ignored his club manager and Pearce to play for Scotland, so that holds absolutely no water.

Care to remind us what nationality Matt Gilks described himself as?

Haha, you are off your trolley if you think that Bardsley, CMS, Mackie, Martin, Morrison and Phillips consider themselves to be Scottish.

What do you mean Phillips doesn't consider himself Scottish?

Where would you get an idea like that?
