About what you'd expect. Deadwood drifting away. Can't have too many complaints.

Stevens, Hamilton, Festy, Will Keane, Manning, Dunne, Lenihan, Christie, Kelleher omitted from last squad. All fit bar Kelleher?

Strong showing of our defensive options there. Dunne and Lenihan are good centre halves at Championship level. Christie, Manning and Stevens have good experience at wing back at Championship level. These lads would have made a lot of squads in recent years. 

Look like Brady is going to be McClean's competition for left wing back based on the lack of any other option and the fact that he's in the squad as a defender. That will be interesting.

It’s a good hours walk . Best to find a bar nearby and wait for the crowds to die down 😬
Here we go again, we're on the road again

No Stevens isn't fit either. Has been out since the opening game of the season.

Good to see Brady back in.

Not happy to see Hourihane at all. There's just not enough in midfield.

Stevens & Lenihan both injured too.

As expected. No real surprises. Last call up for a couple of players with Nations league nearing an end. 

Not too many form players going into this round of games unfortunately.

All you have to do is walk down the road to Cathcart station (less than ten minutes walk) and you can get a train back to Central from there, it's what many Scotland fans do after a game. The area is also quite safe to walk about at night in.

So it's not closed after the match?

Going into a game vs Armenia with no creative CMs...

Only 24 named, I wonder who's close to being added.

If Byrne puts in a performance this evening vs Gent he might be added.

Mount Florida (the closest station to Hampden) is sometimes closed after well attended games so I think it probably will be closed for the upcoming game. There have been some unpleasant bottlenecks in the narrow footbridge leading from the direction of Hampden into Mount Florida and the platform has also at times became dangerously overcrowded.

That's why even if Mount Florida is open many of us just walk down to Cathcart which has a big long platform more suited to accommodating crowds.

Agreed. Far more concerned with Armenia than Scotland game.

The work over the past 18 months is seeing the squad become more settled and to an extent predictable (an not necessarily in a bad way.) Also, even though there is only a handful of PL players, the bulk are playing regularly and in some cases very well.

It's quite alarming to see no midfielders or attackers playing in the Premier League.

Thanks for the replies, lads. Cathcart looks like the way to go, so.

Decent, settled squad. Can't have too many complaints really - would have been good to see another body in midfield maybe, someone like Sykes to add depth. I wonder did Hogan squeeze in there ahead of Keane after last night or was he always going to be in with Keane missing out?
