Scotland has called Naysmith to international duty because he is fit...

Their was a time when the Scottish national side were Household names known to most everyone.

 

Now unless your an avid Highland League's Devotee, you browse through their squad & have honestly hardly if ever heard of any more than if many of them !!!.

 

Bosman was not kind to the state of International side's Scotland can now field.

Aye Pat but there was also a time when you could name every non-british player in the premiership.

 

That has been the downfall of Scottish and to some extent Welsh football.

 

The few players they have are not getting the chances that they used to in the top division.

 

It hasn't affected england so badly due to higher numbers of quality players.

quite a few of their best have played for us! do yo uthink that the 2 team dominance in scottish football over the decades has harmed their game. i dont think i'd be bothered if the same 2 sides won everything every season! and is this limited variety becoming part of the english game today?

It's not just the two top sides, even Division 1 sides are lttered with unprenouncable names...& I dont mean Heamish Arbroth Mc'Sporen etc.

 

Just a quick shuffle thru the Beebs squads, for recent Scotch Prem League fixtures is enough evidence of where the prob's lye. Without even touching the lower divisons & not Inc Celtic & Rangers..here is 50 + places scottish players no longer occupy..!!!

 

We can sustain this, a small league with a small pool of local players simply can not.

 

50 + Reasons for scttish National teams demise

Aberdeen - Snoyl, Severinn, Considine.

 

Dunfermline - Labonte, Daquin, Makel, Gunlaugsson, Tarachulski.

 

Falkirk - Lecsinel, Rodriguez, Santos, Moutinho.

 

Dundee Utd - Brebner, Fernandez, Ogunmade, Lau,

 

Inverness Ct - Golabek, Parrat, Dargo.

 

Hearts - M'Bohli, Lindrom, Bearsa, Forker, Fyssas, Gonclaves, Petras, Aquiir,Besliga,Camazola,Cesnauskis, Kizys, Mikoulinias, Skacel,Bednar, janauskaus, Makela, Pospisil, Thoransson.

 

Motherwell - Hammel, Letitch, Faoran, Themues.

 

Kilmarnock - Fontaine, Fotakis, Invincble,Skora, Di Giaconno.

 

Livingston - Dorado,Vincenze,Nouma, Perreira.

 

Hibs - Malkowski, Konde, Beuzilin, Tomatula, Konte.

Think logically - home grown talent costs a lot of money...

 

you have to nurture them

train them

teach them

show them

pay for them!

 

plus home grown talent always ask for more wages.

 

Foreign players

cost of nurturing them, training them, teaching them, teaching them how to deal with the media etc.etc. is already paid...

 

no investment but you get the player - thats worth a lot more than the transfer fee that you will pay for a player. So lower clubs and skint clubs benefit more by buying players abroad than developing their own (especially if they turn out shite!)

You are right Rowlo that is why the academies are usually the first things to go when cost cutting!

 

Yep - they cost too much hard cash and the results a club gets from them is usually shit... Only really United and the RS that have produced anything decent over the last decade.

Okay we have had rooney and we got £20m for him - but we also invested in all his youth team mates (who are now emptying bins) and the likes of Daniel Fox, Tony Gerrard, Gavin McCann, John Connors, Peter Hill, Guillaime Plessis - all made headlines, but never featured.

 

RS have had Fowler, Mcmanamanananaman, Owen, Gerrard...

 

Man UTd - butt, scholes, beckham, giggs, fletcher, O'shea, etc.etc.

 

When you produce this many 'first teamers' you can only profit. But one decent player every other year is not good enough to justify the cost of an academy - especially if your not a prem club or do not have the same cash as the english game (i.e. Scotland).
