Great showing by Scotland there even though I will never understand why the likes of Phillips, Morrison & Bannan get picked for the squad.

Strachan is always going to play his tried and trusted players, he'll never change, there's no stopping him from always doing that. I'd love to see him be braver with his squad choices, and let the form players play. That said, his current team is doing well at the minute, they've got good chemistry together, and they've got the all-important winning mentality. Maybe I would have played McGregor instead of Morrison, but Phillips and Bannan are form players who should play in my opinion. Who would you have had instead?

England: shite, but good result for us, and that's the only - ONLY - thing that matters.

I definitely don't disagree with most of what you've said there but I just don't like how how those players seem to doddle on the ball/not make their passes quick enough, maybe I was just annoyed that Forrest (who was playing well) got the hook for Martin and Phillips took up the right wing position who IMO done nothing productive all game.

Like you said be a wee bit braver especially when playing at home & also I'd like to see a better overall balance to the team, you won't get the best out of Tierney playing at right back for example so assuming everyone is fit I'd like to see a 4-3-3 of:

Whittaker, Berra, Mulgrew, Tierney - Armstrong (or McGregor), Fletcher, Brown - Anya, Griffiths, Forrest

No room for Matt Ritchie or Andrew Robertson? They'd be two of my first names in the starting eleven, alongside Brown and Armstrong. Personally, I'd have the same team as you, but Ritchie for Forrest and Robertson for Whittaker.

Phillips hasn't been as good for Scotland as he's been for West Brom, but Anya - who's usually been really good at international level - isn't getting many games at Derby County. That's a tricky one. Anya got the assist for the OG that Skrtel scored though, so I'd assume that Strachan will favour him on Sunday.

I fear that the England team are a reflection of their manager at the moment: neither exciting nor inspiring, but somehow still able to get the job done. That sounds harsh... I did like Southgate as a player but he did have some excellent players around him at the time. Embarrassed

Tbh I don't follow the national team that much so I understand if some of my picks there are questionable, I was picking purely on team balance and players I've seen the most. Robertson has great pace but poor delivery, is left back is natural position? Seems like he'd be more comfortable as a winger.
