Roughie’s view: Scotland lacking wow factor

By March 25, 2016No Comments

It was important to win last night and it was a good win away from home. The first half performance was poor but that was perhaps to be expected with a mix and match team.

The second half was a lot better. McCormack looks a good addition and done himself no harm at all. The overriding feeling for me was that the other team were still getting far too many chances.

It was a good result but the star man for me was Allan McGregor with some of the saves he made. We still look vulnerable to crosses into the box as we struggle to clear our lines which gives the opposition opportunities to attack us again.

Centre-back is a real problem area and there’s nothing we can do about it. The boy Martin is the better of the two between him and Greer. If we could get something to play beside him it could be good.

McCormack was a strange one because he wasn’t in the squad initially but Gordon watches his team Monday-Friday and must have liked what he saw. He’ll be in the plans for the future.

It’s hard to judge friendlies but I think Demark will offer more than the Czechs did. The most important thing you can take out of it is a win.

The first qualifier is in September but I could already name nine of the team that is likely to start against Malta.

I don’t see anybody really jumping out. Leigh Griffiths has got a great opportunity to stake something but it’s up to him perform.

We need a wow factor somebody who is going to give you that. If you look at the teams they all have no.10 they’ve all got special players we don’t have one.
