Got involved in this one over on the Sevvies site and I wondered how the rest of you sit on this one. The SFA took Steve Clark away from Kilmarnock when they're currently in their most successful period for more than 50 years. As an association, I would say they have a responsibility to keep our teams as competitive as possible which in turn makes our league more competitive. For that reason, I don't think they should be taking a successful manager away from a member club. For me it simply demonstrates that their influence is destructive to our game. They charged Broony with not acting in the best interests of Scottish football. In my opinion, they should now be facing those charges. Thoughts anyone?

As much as I have no interest in the sfa that’s a ridiculous post bud.

21 May 2019 19:14:28
So let me get this right COYBIG you’re saying the SFA should NOT appoint a success manager?

21 May 2019 19:15:47
A blind man could see that Clarke was best man for the Scotland job mate.
For once the sfa have got it right and kept a good manager involved in Scottish football.

21 May 2019 19:22:15
Cant see your logic there mate, a think he was leaving kilmarnock anyway for family reasons but the sfa are entitled to go for whoever they want. Personally I don't like international football so I shouldn't really have an opinion but I think clarke has just taken his last managers job, scotland will ruin his reputation, well maybe he'll end up back at killie.

The bottom line is Kilmarnock will probably go downhill from here after progressing into a top three side, capable of taking points off ANY SPL team and be replaced by another Lee McCulloch or Allen Johnston type who will possibly undo all the good work done before?
I don't think the SFA forced Clarke to leave or if Kilmarnock had tried to extend his stay, but he seems to have made his own mind up for personal reasons and for those of you that follow International football, I suppose it's light years better than EBT McLeish.

Great appointment for Scotland
Here to a major finals
It’s been a while
Scotland for the World Cup!

21 May 2019 19:56:02
Ok, doesn’t sound like i’m getting much support for this. My point is they should be looking for someone who’s either out of work or from another association. I don’t think they should’ve sacked Strachan as he he came close to qualification which is probably about as good as we can expect.

21 May 2019 20:08:33
Ok Coybig let's go for Alex Mcleish.

21 May 2019 20:21:31
COYBIG they should be looking for the best they can get no matter what job he's in IMO.

21 May 2019 20:51:15
Fair enough Kev, it’s an opinion, as is mine. It may seem a bit defeatist, but I’m not sure any manager can get us to a major tournament now. If I’m right about that, it would make more sense to leave Clark at Kilmarnock where we he could continue to enhance our game and appoint someone who’s out of work. Terry, no!

21 May 2019 21:24:02
Clarke was always leaving killie . i for 1 want scotland to do well and think it would have been stupid for scotland to miss this chance at a decent manager . for once they have got their finger out and made the right appointment . sacking strachan was a mistake as he done not too bad but he was getting to that stubborn strachan era so i can see why he got the boot also . hopefully bowie will fund another good manager to keep killie on the right footing as we do need progressive clubs in scotland for us all to improve . on the fact of them bringing the game into disrepute . they've been doing that since they found out rangers was dying then carried it on to confer the tainted titles to newco . so ye they should all be charged 😂
Hail hail.

How often hv Killie taken points from old firm over last 18 months. Got to think Clarke can set us up to nick results against higher ranked nations instead of the cannon fodder under EBT.

21 May 2019 21:49:41
I think he’ll do well. Whether he can get us to a major tournament is another story but I hope he proves me wrong. I think we all know that managing the national side is a different kettle of fish to club management. Despite my opposition to this, I’ll be right behind him and I hope Griff will get back to full fitness to take part in it with him.

21 May 2019 21:50:48
I think we have the players to do a lot better than we have of late and Clarke is a manager that will organise them properly.

22 May 2019 00:04:11
Think he had decided to go back down sarf, anyway, so maybe he let the SFA know this, and that's why they could appoint him as Scotland manager without having quibbles about weakening one of the Scottish clubs.

22 May 2019 00:05:18
Good post buddy. Im happy with clarke as new manger excited to watch scotland games again. But as you says it has weaken kilmarnock wile they were improveing our league and makeing it more intresting and could have done well in europe next season with clark. Something our league needs. Think scottish football as a whole should be pushing sky for more money and i mean everyone invovled with scottish football. How much alone to do think they make off our old firm games. People like hugh keevins saying the money sky give our league is not scraps.

22 May 2019 00:06:55
Terry, but there is no OF, just a Glasgow Derby with the new boys on the block.

21 May 2019 23:44:15
Terry Munroe, who is the old firm? I have to say Clarke's standing at the moment is very high . Will it be the same in two years time . ? I doubt it .
The biggest problem Clarke and Celtic has, is if Clarke wants to have the best Scottish players playing their best football, he is going to want very many Celtic players playing at their best in friendlies and competitive games . He will want to develop best playing style to suit the style he thinks best .
Celtic have too many games in a season and half our players will have many more .

Just one other point, he should pick Dembele for Scotland's first competitive game and bring him on for as little as last minute and Scotland has Dembele for his whole career.
