If you were trying to pick a Premier League team made up of all Scottish players you’d probably find it quite a challenge. The recent struggles of the Scottish national team have brought into sharp focus the need to get more players from Scotland playing in top European leagues or at least dominating at the top of the domestic game.

There is no reason why Scotland cannot be a more competitive nation given the examples of Northern Ireland and Wales over recent years yet something has prevented that success, or at least relative success, materialising at national level.

Looking at the players available, it is hard to see why the team has struggled quite as much as it has. Of course, Scotland does not have the number of superstars the likes of Germany, France and England can call upon but there is enough to at least have hope of qualification to a major tournament.

The goalkeepers

Given his performances last season, Sunderland’s Jon McLaughlin is a good choice. Playing for Sunderland, he will be used to the pressure of needing to perform every week and he has outstanding ability. Craig Gordon is experienced but not a long-term option and Craig MacGillivray at Portsmouth is improving all the time, so they can provide strong competition for the starting role.

The defence

The clear star in this Scotland team is Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson. He is a popular player in most fantasy sides regardless of nationality. Similar to the approach taken by many fans who play fantasy sports games with Paddy Power Fantasy - where you can choose from NFL, golf and football amongst others - building from the back is important, so having Robertson as one of the first picks is a good shout.
Greg Taylor is another up and coming youngster who has a bright future. His deadline day move to Celtic appears to be smart business by the Glasgow club with the Kilmarnock youngster also attracting interest from Sunderland, although he may have to play out of position considering the strength at left-back and the lack of it in the right-back role.
Charlie Mulgrew adds experience and a danger from set-pieces while Grant Hanley adds solidity. Kieran Tierney is the next star to head south after signing for Arsenal and he has to be in there somewhere, which suggests they need five at the back to make the most of their defensive talent.

The midfield

John McGinn is a class act and has to be the first name on the list for midfielders. He has been one of Aston Villa’s top performers since joining at the start of the 2018/19 season and played a key role in getting Villa into the Premier League.
Alongside him would be Scott McTominay. The Manchester United youngster still has to prove his ability at the very top but he has shown glimpses of his class. Ryan Fraser is one of the best wingers in the Premier League and is a must-have while Robert Snodgrass has a lot of experience so he is another potential option for either the wing or an attacking midfield role.

In attack

The standout choices here are pretty simple. James Forrest of Celtic alongside teammate Leigh Griffiths are very good players both technically and in terms of finishing. The other shoo-in striker has to be Sheffield United’s Oliver McBurnie who oozes talent and could be a class act for Scotland after Sheffield United paid £20m for the Swansea striker.

Great Tips that Competitive Football Youths can use

Whether an aspiring top flight footballer or an enthusiastic weekend player, every young footballer is keen to improve their skills. With the UK International Cup 2020 featuring 100 teams vying for victory, the youth game has never been more competitive. Here are some tips for both off and on the pitch to help sharpen up your performance.

Train Hard – but don’t overdo It

Image result for football training

If you’re serious about getting better then basic physical conditioning is a key area to work on. This is broadly in two areas: cardiovascular endurance, and strength. Although your average football match is 90 minutes, they can be longer due to injury and extra time. But there’s more to it than that.
You don’t want to be dead on your feet when the clock strikes 90 minutes, because you’ll be much less use to your team for the minutes preceding that. On the attacking side, if you’re still running at 95% and your opponent’s tank is empty in the last five minutes, that can be a great opportunity to seize the advantage and score because they’re out of it.

Strength training is a bit different, as this is about not getting muscled off the ball. It’s useful less often than aerobic fitness, but still important. Even going back to Roman legions, men trained with heavier weapons than their actual swords, so that they’d be better prepared for prolonged battles. And if they knew that two thousand years ago, there’s no excuse for not knowing the advantages of training hard today.

There is one major caveat I’d urge you to take seriously: don’t train too much. If you do this, you risk injuring yourself. When you’re injured, you can’t play and even your training will be severely curtailed, so you’ll go backwards instead of forwards. Don’t let macho nonsense drive you too hard, because it’ll just set you back.

Few things are certain in life, or football, so you’ve got to take your advantages where you can find them. Whether that’s on the pitch or enjoying a new bonus on football-themed slots. These latest bonuses include no deposit free spins to use on the slots, or even free bonus cash which can be used on a variety of games. It’s more than possible to withdraw free money, providing you meet wagering requirements and other terms and conditions which you can learn more about in the link above.

Mental Strength

It’s sometimes said, the strongest muscle in the human body is the heart. Football results can sometimes go a surprising way, and mental strength, whether that’s dealing with a match that’s turning out to be more difficult than expected or with a result that was against you, is important. A great man once wrote: how much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes?

If you’re dwelling on a dodgy refereeing decision, or when you feel you let the team down (or vice versa) your head isn’t where it should be. Focus on the things that are within your power to change, and work hard on improving them. Whether that means letting go of a past result, whilst still learning the lessons from it, or being patient getting back from injury and not rushing things (and making matters worse), a cool head will help you a lot, both on and off the pitch.

You can’t play if you’ve got a red card, or if you keep injuring yourself.

Be Age Aware

From small children to young adults, the youth game covers a wide range. Be aware of what’s appropriate for your age group so you don’t end up overdoing things, or aiming so high you’re going to fail and end up frustrated. The Scottish FA has put together a youth player pathway, which is a fancy way of saying it’s provided some advice for the various age groups, for both boys and girls.

For a sport whose greats include Cristiano Ronaldo, this might seem a counter-intuitive point. But as pro Neill Collins advises (specifically when going for a trial, but it applies more broadly), humility is a good thing.

Forget football for a moment and think about a normal job. You’re hiring a secretary. Two candidates come in. Same experience and skill level, nothing to differentiate them. Except that one’s arrogant, and one’s respectful and humble. Who’s going to annoy the office more? Who’s going to create more of a workload, smoothing ruffled feathers? A harmonious office, like a happy dressing room, is a lot less work than one full of egos and bust ups.


You’re going to have setbacks, sooner or later. Nobody goes through football without making the odd mistake, or suffering injury. What matters is that you learn from errors, and keep going. Grit and determination can carry you a long way. It can be the difference between chasing down a late equaliser or just feeling too tired to put in enough effort. Just remember that results last a lot longer than the effort required to get them. A match is 90 minutes. But that winning feeling will stick around for a lot longer.

Pitch Points

Be there for your team mates, and if they make a small mistake, don’t go ballistic. You’ll make mistakes too sooner or later, and having someone scream at you isn’t going to make you feel any better.

You should show respect to the officials (even if you don’t feel it). If a decision’s 50/50 and you’ve rubbed the ref up the wrong way, that could alter the way the decision goes.

When you lose the ball, chase it back straight away. Even if you don’t win it back, you’ll keep the pressure on your opponent and stop him having time to think.

There’s plenty of competition in youth football, and a lot of emerging talent in Scotland. Great for spectators, and a stern test for younger players aiming to rise through the ranks. Just remember to try and have fun at the same time. Everything’s easier when you’re enjoying it.

Most people consider that online gambling sites are created for rich people and require the large money injections for the game.

Most people consider that online gambling sites are created for rich people and require the large money injections for the game. However, this statement is fundamentally false. You can spin slots, roulette or play poker without spending a dime on it, but taking a no deposit bonus. There are the biggest casino bonuses.

What is a no deposit bonus casino?

No deposit bonus – it’s a type of reward that does not require customer replenishment. The amount is virtual and credited to the account automatically. It’s available to play in a specific casino.

Casinos with no deposit bonuses don’t give players large amounts. Most often, there is $5-20 credited to the account.

The best no deposit bonuses at the casino are offered by large gaming portals. They give gifts not only to new customers, but also to regular players. Promotion can be received on a birthday, holiday or just like that. The player needs to fulfill certain conditions to withdraw promoted funds.

Online casino no deposit bonus is given with a wager — it’s a multiplier. It can be equal to 10, 30, 50 or more. The number tells the player how many times it is necessary to increase the gift to withdraw it.

Features of no deposit promotion

Novice gamblers are wary of a no deposit bonus at the casino. They consider it a ploy and a fraud, see only the negative sides. However, this type of promotion is beneficial to both sides.

Player advantages in using a free bonus are:

  • test the slot machines.
  • check the quality of the casino.
  • communicate with technical support and evaluate their loyalty and the speed of complaints processing.

At the same time, there is always an opportunity to win back and withdraw the bonus. In any case, the player doesn’t lose anything and can get pleasure from the slots.

How to improve your football skills

Written by
Football requires a great level of skill and the right traits to enjoy success in the sport. If you want to grow your core skills and iron out weaknesses, you must dedicate much of your time to improve to become a star player on the pitch.
Regardless of whether you are playing for a youth team or with your friends, there are actions you can take to become a better player. Read the below tips on how to improve your football skills.
Perfect Your Dribbling
Dribbling is one must-have skill that you can improve in your garden. It requires you to push the ball into an area where you can reach it, but a defender cannot, which is no simple feat.
To improve your dribbling skills, you must keep your head up and your eyes forward, instead of staring downwards at a ball. You also must aim to keep the ball near your feet, which can prevent the opposition from stealing it from you.
Practice Your Passing
It doesn’t matter if you are an excellent striker or great in goal, you’ll enjoy little success in the sport if you cannot accurately pass a ball to another player. While the pros make it look easy, the skill can only be gained with much practice.
For example, ask a friend or family member to help you master your skills when an opportunity arises. You also could place a cone or football ten yards away, which could simulate a teammate and aim to hit the object accurately. You never know, you could become so good that football fans will one day be backing your skills on the likes of Unibet.
Rather than waiting for training sessions, the BBC has created top tips for practicing your passing accuracy in your garden.
Tweak Your Trapping Skills
Excellent trapping skills are bound to wow your coach and will ensure you don’t spend a game on the bench. To effectively trap the ball out the air, you’ll need to kick the football as high as possible without losing control. When the ball is making its descent, use the top of your foot to settle it on the ground, but ensure it doesn’t bounce off your foot. It’s a skill that takes balance, speed and precision, so you’ll need to work hard to master it.
Boost Your Fitness
While dribbling, trapping and passing are essential skills to possess in football, you also shouldn’t underestimate the importance of exceptional physical fitness. If you don’t have the energy to use your skills for a full 90 minutes, it’s unlikely you’ll achieve your sporting goals throughout the years, such as playing for Rangers FC or Celtic FC.
Football can be intense and fast, and you need to be in peak physical condition to routinely run after the ball, tackle other players, and score a goal. To ensure you are in great health, you must work on both your aerobic and anaerobic fitness levels. As discussed on Footballscience.net, you will also need to work on your strength training.
As you will need to embark on sharp, short bursts of speed during a game, you should focus on interval training to support your anaerobic system. For example, you can start by running for 10 to 30 seconds, slowing down, and then jogging for another 30 seconds, which you should repeat at least five times.

Will Young Talent End Scotland's Drought?

Written by
For many years Scotland were not represented in the Premier League, with top-tier talent plying their trade at the top end of the division. Darren Fletcher was a rare presence for Manchester United in the middle of the park, but Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City looked elsewhere for their stars. However, stars are beginning to emerge to become key players down the league, which has resulted in the elite of the Premier League snapping up the talent for premium prices.
Andrew Robertson started the trend following his move to Liverpool. The Scotland captain has developed into one of the finest left-backs in the world and was crucial in the Reds’ triumph in the Champions League over Tottenham. Robertson’s performances and leadership ability have been seized upon and he dons the armband at international level. The 25-year-old is among a crop of talented players that will be determined to lead Scotland back to a major competition after a 21-year drought. Under new manager Steve Clarke, they could be worth a shout in the free football tips to qualify for Euro 2020, having guaranteed at least a shot in the playoffs.



A lot will depend on the performances of the group, although elements of the squad are beginning to play at a higher standard, which will only benefit the national team. Kiernan Tierney appears to be the latest player on the move and he could be destined for a transfer to Arsenal, where he could lock down the left-back position for the next decade at the Emirates Stadium. Only the performances of Robertson has nudged him to right-back for the national team, but versatility will be a key factor moving forward for club and country. Even if the move does not happen in the summer, at the age of 22, he is a prime spot in his career to wait for the right moment.



The midfield is probably the most intriguing and could be the driving force behind a run to the Euros. John McGinn caught the eye of every team in Scotland during his time with Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League. Aston Villa managed to convince him to move south in a £3.5m deal and he was everything the club hoped and more in the middle of the park. His skill and combative play in the midfield was a vital element in their promotion to the Premier League.
The 24-year-old was even linked with a move to Manchester United for a fee in the region of £50m. His first season in the Premier League will be fascinating to watch. United could have paired him with Scott McTominay in their midfield. He broke into the team two seasons ago and continues to earn the trust and praise of his managers at Old Trafford. McTominay has the size and strength to become a lynchpin in front of the back four for the foreseeable future.



Ryan Fraser has been a revelation for Bournemouth. Last season he created 14 goals for the Cherries, only Eden Hazard provided more assists in the Premier League. The 25-year-old has been one of the best attacking players in the league for the past three seasons, which has caught the attention of Arsenal among others at the top end of the table. Fraser added goals to his game in the 2018/19 campaign, notching seven strikes for Eddie Howe’s men. If he is able to maintain that standard of form for club and country, Scotland could be on to a winner in the final third.
Strikers are in short supply at the moment, although salvation could be on the way in the form of Oli McBurnie. He completed a £20m move to newly-promoted Sheffield United and will get a crack at the Premier League with the Blades, having been given brief opportunities by Swansea City. Clarke and his staff will be watching his progress with great interest to see whether he can rise up like Robertson.
It’s often hard to say how much of an impact a new Scotland manager will have on the youth football structures below him. For the last six years, the national side has been under the guidance of managers who, some may feel, have taken Scottish football backward with no real signs of improvement made on the international stage. 
Alex McLeish’s appointment as Scotland manager in February 2018, in particular, was indeed mind-boggling and spelled disaster for the up-and-coming players, as he was tasked with finding an immediate fix to the problems facing the team. This obviously meant that younger players weren’t called on to take Scotland forward and instead, it was the age-old saga of trying to convince players to switch allegiances in order to improve the here and now. 

What lies ahead for the troubled team?

Needless to say, it’s easy to see why Scotland hasn’t been able to bear the fruit of any long-term plans which is ultimately why they still struggle on the international stage. 
Steve Clarke’s arrival could see that change, with the 55-year-old seemingly more aware that strong youth structures mean at the very least, qualification for international tournaments. However, the former Killie boss wants to relieve the pressure on youth teams, with his instructions to the coaches, in essence, being to allow them some leeway and to not overcomplicate things.
In fact, when Clarke was discussing his humble beginnings and the road he has taken in football, he was quoted as saying 'football is the simplest game in the world, complicated by coaches, there’s a ball, go and play'. 
Really, this is a man who looks back fondly on his journey through youth football and the sacrifices others have made for him. Clarke has never forgotten the helping hands he's received in the past and that’s why he dedicates so much of his time to grassroots football. This is all very positive news for the national team as they now have a man in charge who has first-hand experience of the benefits of getting it right at a youth team level. 
What it means for Scotland’s immediate prospects is hard to say after McLeish left. Bookmakers say the team is at 50/1 odds in football betting to win Group 1 in Euro 2020 qualifying, having endured a disastrous start to the campaign. Once again, a new Scotland manager is paying the price for his predecessor’s mistakes and is left having to pick up the pieces. However, with Clarke in the hot seat now, Scottish football has a real chance of escaping the doldrums and building long-lasting foundations that will see new managers succeed rather than wilt.

Could Clarke crack the code?

In another telling one-liner from the new Scotland manager, Clarke describes himself as a 'decent manager but a very good coach', which is significant in many ways. You could probably count the number of times on one hand that Strachan and McLeish were on the training pitch in their boots running in-between cones, demonstrating what players need to do.
Steve Clarke will give you that over and over again; whistle around the neck, come rain or shine, he will be in and amongst his players leading from the front. For Scotland to get better they need to be improved from within, and that is exactly what Clarke will do.
Over the past two seasons, Video Assistant Referee, which is commonly known as VAR, has slowly been introduced into English football, with the technology first being utilised in the 2017-18 FA Cup. On the 16th of January 2018, Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho became the first player to have a goal awarded through the system when the 2015-16 Premier League champions overcame Fleetwood in a third-round replay.
With the Premier League now set to take a chance on VAR for the upcoming season, Scottish football has the opportunity to monitor the effectiveness of the technology within the English game on a regular basis before deciding upon whether it should be implemented into the Scottish Premier League.

Monitoring VAR’s Progress

A few months after VAR’s competitive debut in English football when Brighton faced Crystal Palace at the Amex Stadium in January 2018 in a third-round FA Cup clash, the Scottish Professional Football League had stated that it had no plans to introduce the technology into the Scottish game but did plan on monitoring its progress.
With the technology being brandished as "embarrassing" by Mauricio Pochettino, the Tottenham Hotspur manager, after numerous interventions disrupted the flow of the game when his side met Rochdale in 2018, it’s hardly surprising that the SPL are taking things slow before introducing VAR into the Scottish football.
For many, what VAR seeks to do within the game is not the issue, but the speed and lack of understanding over how it operates have led many to believe that its recent controversies are unlikely to be eradicated over time. Following a string of controversial moments during the 2018/19 season in both the English game and on the International stage, the decision by Scottish football bosses to hold back on VAR during its period of confusion could prove beneficial in the long run.

Rule Implementation Changes and The Need for Clarity

Following the introduction of VAR, the manner in which the game is played has been drastically altered with numerous rules being affected by the new technology. After Phil Neville’s England were knocked out of the Women’s World Cup, the manager called for FIFA to change the handball law with inconsistencies emerging on a regular basis, especially with VAR now being utilised.
As VAR has changed how various rules have been implemented, the game as a whole is being altered and such developments are something that young players will have to take note of. While youth football doesn’t have the same technology as the top divisions, becoming familiar with how the rules are changing and adapting their games accordingly will be key to those youngsters who are looking to go professional.
While the need for clarity is important, many football fans may learn to appreciate VAR and other technological advancements within the sport due to such developments being made within the mobile betting industry. VAR has increased the reliability of officiating due to the ability to rewatch an incident, which has increased the viability of in-play and pre-match betting. As betting is a popular pastime among many sports fans, Mr Green has embraced the technological switch with their wide array of online betting opportunities coming in the form of flexi betting, multi betting, spread betting and much more. Crucially, even though the betting market is now predominantly based around technology, the sector has continued to flourish and highlights how, if given the time, VAR could grow on fans in much the same fashion.

A Key Few Months for the Future of Scottish Football

Ultimately, as VAR has been central to numerous controversies since the start of the 2017-18 season, the reluctance to implement the technology into Scottish football appears to be understandable. Although there is still plenty of time to evolve and develop video technology within the sport, it remains to be seen if the coming months will influence the SPL into making a definitive decision either one way or the other.

Celtic are favourites to claim the 2019/20 Scottish Premier League title. The Bhoys have won eight consecutive titles and bookies have priced them at 5/11 to make it nine in a row.
Former manager Neil Lennon replaced Brendan Rodgers, who left for Leicester City. But some believe Lennon’s style of play could disrupt the momentum gained under Rodgers. Rangers could close the gap, or even overtake Celtic – especially with the Gers progressing so well under former Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.


Rangers’ price offers good value

Priced at 9/4 to claim the title, Rangers look good value based on how well they closed the gap last term. They impressed in their pre-season matches and recorded a 10-0 win against St Joseph’s in Europa League qualifying. They may be 100/1 outsiders to win that competition, but the Scottish title looks to be within their grasp.


Tactical switch makes Gerrard’s men worth backing

Gerrard identified his 4-3-3 system was not working and switched to a 4-2-3-1 and then to a 4-3-2-1 formation. This got the best out of his midfield and supporting strikers. They used the same system in their recent games, and it looks set to be the favoured formation for the coming campaign. As a result, Rangers look a good bet to steal the crown from their rivals.
This season, there will be chances for bettors to get no deposit free bets online. This gives them an opportunity to take a risk-free punt. And Gerrard’s tactical know-how should tempt many punters to back the Blues for the title.

Why betting on Rangers makes sense

Under the Liverpool-born boss, Rangers look to attack as often as possible. They like to stretch the opposition and hurt them by moving the ball into space. When they don’t have the ball, they press well. And they always looking for an opportunity to counter-attack. As a result, they earn a lot of possession but do not look to dwell on the ball and this makes them exciting to watch.
Gerrard has have had more time to put his ideas in place. And he has recruited players who can perform the roles required. Sheyi Ojo’s arrival on loan from Liverpool gives Rangers a real boost on the right-wing. Meanwhile, ex-Bologna man Filip Helander will shore up the defence. The boss is also keen to take advantage of Scotland’s talented youth pool.  The Glasgow side scored two more than their city rivals last term but conceded seven more. Addressing that imbalance could make the difference between winning and losing the title.



On top of all this, Celtic could regress under Lennon during his first full season back at the helm. It will be tough to maintain the same performance levels as Rodgers. And the team will need time to adapt to a new system. For bettors, this could be the last chance in a while to back Rangers for the title at such a long price.

The world's top football earners

Written by
Being a football player is one of the most lucrative jobs that anyone could have, but with all the discussions regarding the money involved does anyone actually know how much money the best of the best are paid? Here we look at the top 10 paid players in world football today. 
The top 10 of the highest paid footballers starts off with Angel Di Maria, with his contract at oil rich Paris Saint Germain earning him $2,572.86 an hour according to research from Find Betting Sites. Having also played at Real Madrid and Manchester United in his career, it’s fair to say that Di Maria will be fairly comfortable when it comes to career earnings. 
Earning around $100 an hour more than his compatriot is Argentine Sergio Aguero who English side Manchester City are paying $2,675.32 an hour for his goals. Having recently become their all-time top scorer, you can say that they are definitely getting their money’s worth. 
In 8th place, we move on to the second Uruguayan on the list in Luis Suarez, who is earning $3,062.39 an hour having moved to Barcelona from Liverpool. Despite having disciplinary issues in the past, the player has gone on to be the frontman that Barcelona needed to compliment Lionel Messi. 
Next we move on to the first British player to join the list in Wayne Rooney, who is currently on the books of Major League Soccer side DC United being paid $3,073.77 an hour. Having won countless trophies in England with Manchester United, and then returned to his boyhood club Everton, England’s all-time record goalscorer moved on to America in order to try and help build the brand of football in the United States. 
The highest paid player not playing in Europe is in 6th place on the list with former Chelsea man Oscar being paid $3,119.31 an hour by Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG. The Brazilian star has previously discussed his surprising move by saying he moved to ensure a better future for his family and not for football reasons, which has been met with a backlash from some football purists. 
Entering the top 5, we have the last player from the English Premier League in World Cup Winner and Manchester United star Paul Pogba. The Frenchman may have had his run ins with managers at both club and international level, but he is still being paid $3,358.38 an hour after his return to the club that he left on a free transfer at the age of 19. He is yet to provide the major silverware that he was bought in for. 
We now have the only other British player on the list in Gareth Bale who left Tottenham Hotspur for Real Madrid for a then world record fee of over $100 million. His time at Real Madrid has been full of highs and lows and a reported strained relationship with the fans has hampered his progress throughout. He is still paid a reported $3,938.98 an hour by the Spanish club. His winning goal in the Champions League final may have helped this figure. 
The top three is started off by the player who stole the world record fee from Bale in Neymar Jr, who moved from Barcelona to Paris Saint Germain for over $200 million. A fee that is yet to be beaten and is unlikely to beaten in the near future. Despite the high fee, and not yet providing the UEFA Champions League trophy that his club so badly wants, he is still paid a reported $10,245.90 an hour. This wage is miles ahead of the 4th place and shows the disparity between the top three best players and the rest. 
The top two places could go to no one else but Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who have dominated football headlines for years. Their rivalry goes beyond the pitch with many football fans choosing one to follow as their GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) and using many facts to back up their claims. In terms of money, however, there can only be one winner and this crown goes to the Argentine captain Messi. He earns a reported $12,636.61 an hour compared to $12,295.08 earned by his Portuguese rival. 
In total, $56,978.60 is paid per hour to the top 10 players in the World, in just their salary earnt. They will more than likely earn double or triple this when you include the sponsorship deals and bonuses that are paid to them. Do you think these players are worth their money? Have they earned it? Some of the facts around these players do suggest that their respective clubs have got their money worth.
