Dead man walking, Craig Levein, has been punted as Scotland manager.
The only surprise was it took so long since the Belgium game.
However, as I said at the time, I doubt a change of manager will make much difference. I believe we would have ended up not bottom of our group (though not actually much higher.)
We are a small country on the periphery of Europe with no right to expect great things from our footballers. We are sadly at the moment in playing terms very impoverished. I can’t see a queue to take over forming.
To take one example Belgium has over twice as many people in its population as Scotland. They seem to have hit lucky with a set of good players all coming through at once. We can only wait for such riches.
