    You should be pleased...

    robert m...of course its not coincidence that in Souness time at Liverpool there were a number of great Scottish players in the side with him and for that matter there wer great Scottish players in most top sides of the time. Check most Scottish starting elevens and u you will find a very high percentage of starters possess family names with no Scottish familial link.....players imported in from abroad just as in the English Football League...nothing u can do about it either since the Bosman Ruling. If half the starting Scottish elevens are made up 50% of players from abroad thats only half as many Scottish born players playing in their league now for English clubs to buy Hence the dearth of top class Scots in the English Prem today as opposed to in Souness time.
