French Football

Good, but…

  1. Scotland player ratings from today’s Daily Record. Not biased at all…..

    Craig Gordon 9
    See that £9million. That’s the bargain of the century. Two world-class saves from one of the world’s best goalies.

    James McFadden 9
    How far out was he? 100 yards? What a goal, what a man and what a legend. Apart from his winner the Everton striker worked his socks off on his own up front. Surely one of the best goals by anyone in a Scotland jersey.

    Alan Hutton 9
    Outstanding. Covered central defence and right-back where often he had to cope with two players running at him. Rangers man got forward and put in great crosses.

    David Weir 8
    Struggled early in the match when the French played quick balls. Settled down and then threw his old body at everything.

    Stephen McManus 9
    Another wonderful performance from the Celtic captain. He was the one to make blocks and head balls clear. Brave as they come, with plenty of guile as well.

    Graham Alexander 7
    A surprise choice to start the match at left-back and at times his ageing legs couldn’t cope. But worked so hard to get himself back into positions to block crosses.

    Scott Brown 7
    Did not look comfortable on the right, with his manager scolding him at one stage for not going with his man. But tackled as if his life depended on it and did get better when the pressure mounted.

    Paul Hartley 9
    His best game in a Scotland jersey. Sat deep and didn’t put a foot wrong all night. He passed accurately, made countless interceptions and slowed play down when it was needed. Well played, sir.

    Barry Ferguson 7
    Scotland captain didn’t get on the ball in the first-half enough but he is great at getting a pass away in the tightest of situations. Grew as the game wore on when his football intelligence really shone through.

    Darren Fletcher 3
    Had the job of shackling the French captain which he was doing well, until a hamstring injury forced him off after 25 minutes. Booked on the night and as a result will miss the Ukraine match.

    Lee McCulloch 7
    What an effort, even if he gave away a hell of a lot of fouls. His physical presence caused problems and was effective at the back where he won headers all night.

    Stephen Pearson 7
    On for Darren Fletcher and brought pace and energy to Scotland ‘s midfield. The Derby County man produced some superb runs in the second-half.

    Garry O’Connor 5
    Didn’t use his head as much as he could have done when the clock was running down but the Birmingham striker played his part.


  2. Looking for a picture of Pierre Morice who played for the the French during the late 70s or 80s. Do you know where I can find this?
