    Two leads he created that would have been enough thrown away against England and tonight

    Boy done all he could once he got picked. Nearly single handily dragging that shower a * to the play offs.

    The only positive of this campaign is Leigh demonstrating why he should now be our undisputed first choice striker.

    To think we've been putting up with Chris Martin and Steven Fletcher up to the last few international games :confused:

    Brilliant the wee man. As for Martin and Fletcher they should be on Blackpool beach with the donkeys

    He can score at any level. We're lucky to have him at this stage in his career.

    According to James Mc Fadden, WGS says that Griff is the first name on his team sheet. Since when!! Only when he got absolutely desperate. Wonder how long it will take for McGregor, McGinn or Christie to get their chance.......

    All he's interested in doing is running in behind. Against that level of opposition it just leaves him really isolated and that just means the ball won't stick and teams like Bayern/PSG will just start another attack straight away.

    He never dropped deep to offer an option to his team mates, I don't even remember him running the channels to offer an option down the side of the centre-backs (although you don't always see that on TV, admittedly).

    Unless he's willing to sacrifice some of his goal-scoring chances to help the team relieve some pressure, he'll never be the best option for games like these.

    Don't think he can take a single bit of blame, had almost literally zero to feed off.

    One chance in the first half when he was trying to shift it onto his left peg, no opportunities at all at free kicks either.

    More evidence that Dembele is the man for these matches.
