We have been in the tynecastle arms a few times as has a lot of our supporters and there was no problem whatsoever mate.

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 18:04:32
Tynecastle Arms will be okay.
Been in before when Gers are in town, and a mixed bar who tolerate each other.
No hassle and some banter pre match.

I see young Josh McPake scored a belter for Scotland's under 19's. I hope we really nurture this young player, as he has the capacity to be a superstar for us in the future.

Agree3 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 11:40:06
McPake is going to be top class no doubt about it a very exciting talent.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 13:11:18
Mcpake was excellent particularly first half. He showed good feet for the goal however it was a cross.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 14:23:57
I just watched the goal just now, absolute class, I also hope Rangers look after this young man, he has a good future hopefully with us.

Fergie, agreed Alfredo got no supply at all and the Colombian side looked all over the place, mate.

BBC Scotland showing Scotland under 19s, four off our academy boys starting, maxwell and mcpake playing well.

15 Oct 2019 20:13:58
Aye but our youngsters haven't made it for years mate, may as well turn over and us release them all πŸ˜‰.

Snell correct, but we stood up well too them.
Kennedy and mebube did not hide despite some brutal challenges.

We did indeed mate. Actually enjoyed watching the game, a rare feeling for a Scotland game these days!

15 Oct 2019 21:33:11
Agree snell, what u think off Hamilton centre half from Hamilton accies.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 22:52:59
Accies are painful to watch but a lad at u19 getting a regular game is a decent sign. Whole back four done a cracking job mate.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 10:09:28
Our boy maxwell at left back was excellent.

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 10:17:20
I think our academy is in the best position its been in for yearsπŸ‘.

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 11:30:38
Tend to agree coldo, five players under 19 last night, four in under 21s. Several in under 17.
This does not include six in norther Ireland age group squads and Nathan Coombes in England under 18 and scoring.
We seem to be doing something correct, also believe balde was in a Portugal squad.

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 11:31:25
Snell the boy Hamilton is only 17, big lad and good feet.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 14:27:45
To my mind, it really shouldn't matter who the kids play for at that age, if they are good enough, play them. There has been too much emphasis that anyone plying their trade in English Football eg, will be better than our home bred players. Good luck to all our youngsters, as sure as hell we need them coming through.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 18:01:36
Hickey is no better than Jake Hastie.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 18:34:56
Not even the same type of player. It's like comparing apples and oranges.

Agree6 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 20:39:15
Hickey is a left full back mate, jake hastie is a right winger. I stand to be corrected but as i've said before
hastie will be a very good player for us IMO. He's a very fast, powerful runner and direct. He also scores goals. He will make it at rangers imo.

Agree6 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 21:50:17
Agree SGL hastie has bags of potential, he just needs to keep working very hard to get better.

Agree3 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 10:20:33
I like how direct hastie is, I think his loan spell will do him good. Also he plays on the right which I think we badly need. Kent left hastie right, both very direct. High hopes for hastie. πŸ‘.

Plenty of media talk about a new director of football and a chief scout. I do support this but it's high time we see our academy system passing on real talent to the first team.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 11:37:21
Im no expert on this as my memory is no the best so how many players over the last 30 years with our academy made it to the 1st team and cemented a spot and was Rangers class. Obviously BF, who else?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 12:21:48
People seem to see the academy as a factory of producing world class footballers. However, most youth players won't even make the first team bench, never mind play regularly in a team challenging for silverware. This is not a failing of our academy, but rather based on the quality of player we have and the percentage that actually have the ability. Better young players will always go down south eventually.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 12:24:50
Charlie Miller, Charlie Adam, Alan Hutton, Allan McGregor, Ross Mcrory, Chris Burke all these guys played regularly at the time and Allan McGregor still cemented in the 1st 11 even on his 2nd stint at the club and I have no doubt Billy Gilmore would have as well if he'd stayed.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 12:25:18
Adam made the grade for a few seasons as did Burke and Smith. They all played their part in title winning sides. Hutton was brilliant and earned close to 10m price tag. allan McGregor another through the youth system.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 12:25:23
I'm sure I read that the new chief scout wanted is a guy from hibs, can't remember his name. Hibs haven't exactly been producing talent. Time will tell I suppose. πŸ‘.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 12:57:23
7 in 30 years = 1 player every 4 or 5 years. So as far as I can see with Mcrorie we have used our statistical quota up so why would we expect our youth system to produce more when it couldn't over the last 30 years where I would argue more kids were playing and the talent pool was probably bigger, answers on a post card. For interest is there anybody who can tell me the exact figure for our youth over the last 30 years who made it to 1st team football regularly.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 12:58:12
If we can't find and produce young players to play in our first team then of course its a failing in our academy, we are the biggest club in scotland and should have no problem getting the best talent in scotland. If that's the case then we need better scouts and coaches. John mcginn was 5 mile along the road in paisley, andy robertson was along the road at queens park. Of course its a failing on our part. πŸ‘.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 14:02:33
You seem to have plenty of criticism Coldo, but with no actual solution for our own youth set-up. You think Scotland is churning out wonder kids like a pie factory? It is not, we are only 5 million people and players develop at different rates. Andy Robertson has shown in the national side that he is only at the level he is because of players around him at club level and i'm not sure McGinn 'went to the right school' for you guys' tastes either - these are only two players we missed out on, there have been many others. However this can be dependent on age, location and whole heap of diferentials that you have no concept of. You are commonly on here saying 'Ojo is pish' etc, yet he's a promising talent at one of the biggest clubs in the world, so you clearly have no idea about youth development.

TJBB

Ian Durrant, but that's about it. What disturbs me is I keep hearing bout success of youth, U21, U23 and slightly older, some who could do a job. But who are constantly overlooked by crap purchases like Grezda and others.

15 Oct 2019 15:17:31
I gave you a solution seeker, better coaches and scoutsπŸ‘. And ojo is pishπŸ‘.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 15:25:52
Andy robertson is only playing at the level he is because of his team mates? So your saying andy roberston isn't good enough on his own merit to play at that level. Souness that's just absolute pish talk and proves you are clueless. πŸ‘.

15 Oct 2019 16:33:00
He's no better than Tierney, Coldo - get it round ye.

Ed, an extract, below, from a piece I found to give some perspective on how difficult it is in today's set up to make it as a pro from an academy. Reading it and on reflection we shouldn't be surprised the youth set up isn't a conveyor belt of talent. Its then of no surprise its why we end up picking up players at 28 yrs+ that have left at 16-21 and developed elsewhere and then came back. The ones that are the real deal leave have a career and come back in their last year. Maybe that's why we do okay at Sco U16,18 and 21 but that's where it ends as most of these players will bench warm or play for small clubs/ reserves and won't continue to develop at senior level into men.

Extract:

Academies of their very essence are a good idea. Get the best players, give them the best coaches in the best potential environment.

The problem is that the ills of senior football – greed, opportunism, the stockpiling of talent unnecessarily for commercial gain – are seeping down into junior football.

That's what's happening in the academies of the major clubs where boys are going in, they're sucked into the system. They're taken over by the dream.

But, realistically, all they would do is sit there and wait for a chance that will never come.

The statistics are really sobering. Out of all the boys who enter an academy at the age of 9, less than half of 1% make it. Or a make a living from the game either.

The most damning statistic of all is only 180 of the 1.5 million players who are playing organised youth football in England at any one time will make it as a Premier League pro.

That's a success rate of 0.012%.

Pretty much the sort of chances of you being hit by a meteorite on your way home.

The real slim shady indeed lol Caldo you do make some great points at times but you ruin it by attacking your own.

Robertson is by far better than tierney. Apologies seeker, typoπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ‘.

Agree3 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 17:39:35
I think you'll find C that the people that get attacked are those who post opinions that are not formed through blue specs. You are accused of being a tim or negative for posting the obvious. Unless your opinion is nothing but red white and blue and everything is great then you are negative or a tim. You completely shot your own argument down earlier on another thread when you told me that ojo is worth 4mil which is almost 50% of what we paid for kent. I mean I don't rate ojo but his 5 year contract is worth more than 4mil. Yet you think he is better than kent but worth 50% lessπŸ‘πŸ€”. Then you have souness telling me I know nothing but he claims that andy robertson is only at the level he is because of his team mates. This is the same robertson that has played the last two champs league finals winning one and holding his own in the prem at the top. He then plays the tim card because has nothing else and knows he is talking pish about robertson. I'm supposed to listen to you two, Turn it up πŸ‘.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 17:41:16
I don't get the downer on trying to have an academy? Would you rather we shut it down altogether?

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 18:19:59
Caldo, go and find anything where I have ever said Ojo was better than Kent and post it. Kent is far better than Ojo. Where you getting this? You are good at putting words in people's mouths. Go quote anything I have ever said regarding Ojo being better than Kent. I look forward to this!

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 18:21:48
You actually talk so much pish on here. You are embarrassing yourself. Go and give yourself peace!

Agree4 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 18:30:11
Btw had to double check this since you are adamant a shot myself down. Ojo signed a 5 year contract with Liverpool worth 10,000 per week. You do the math on that. Worth more than 4 million? You are a good laugh I will give you that son!

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 20:23:38
Souness, that is the worst thing I have ever read on here AR is only good because of the players around him.

He is a left back it’s not as if you can control a game from left back and he has to cover for the CH as they are that bad all the time for Scotland .

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 23:42:53
Actually, Ojo is on Β£360k a year at Liverpool and will have four years left on his contract, which is less than Β£1.5million. Don't let's get hysterical, lads, and it also shows why we will not be paying Β£2m for Hickey or any other 'teen sensation'.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 10:14:26
C were you not telling me that ojo stats are better than kents thus why ojo is better than kent? Did you not tell me that liverpool gave ojo a 5 year deal to up his value? - to what 4mil? Why would liverpool give a player 5 year contract to up a players value to 4mil, that doesn't make sense. It amazes me how people know players wages. If anyone is a good laugh its your fantasy stories about how gerrard regrets not playing for us. πŸ‘.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 13:44:47
Ojo has better stats than Kent. It's not opinion it's fact. I have never once suggested Ojo is better like you said. You claim Ojos contract is worth more than the 4 million I guessed as a minimum Liverpool would want. I probably called that wrong. They will demand about the same as Kent. He was coming to the end of a contract which is why I said they offered a new one to increase his value. What is so hard to understand about that? I don't know why I even bother replying to you. You are missing a village!
