After watching the dismal display in the USA.I felt as if we got done done the wings far to much.I understand we had no Snodgrass or Forest.And feels that GMS is not ready yet.All these players provide the skill and tricks and pace to go bye defenders.I also believe that David Templeton has the same kind off flair.And we could have used him over there,as ample cover for the players that were injured.I watched Phillips and I am the first one on here,to defend our English born players.I felt that all he could do was run with the ball.And never showed any great degree off skill.OK it was his first cap.How ever I have watched him plenty off times for Blackpool.And believe that Templeton offers more as a footballer.

I assume you mean "english" players as opposed to "english born"?

Phillips is too young and inexperienced and possibly no real interest in playing for Scotland. So, how about continuing the 'avoid Scots and play poor English players' policy and cap Boris Johnston. Play him on the wing (right). ?

Change the record Bzzzz!

Besides we are criticising Craig Levein and his terrible management at the moment and not talking about players and such like ;) If you can tie in your English comment to him and involve criticism in some way, shape or form - i'll be happy.....

Templeton's not ready or on form. He didn't play through injury at the tail end of the season so quite understandable why he wasn't even in the squad.

I think it is unfair to judge Phillips on his first appearance, it's hardly as if anyone else (bar Broonie & KM) looked like they gave a flip, simple fact is tho that he seems already to have indicated his allegiance quite clearly.

I'd love to see Templeton in the squad, but agree, he;s in the same point in his career as Mackay-steven. Slightly raw, but the potential is definitely there.

I think the midfeild we played in America was almost second string.... Surely come September, assuming everyone is fit and on form, you'd start Naismith wide left, Forrest wide right, with 3 of Morrison, Brown, Fletcher and Adam taking the 3 midfeild places.

Watch him every week. He's not that good.

Ps Sergio agrees.
