Fraser Fyvie: Impressive performance for Scotland U21

Wigan's Fraser Fyvie, Stuart Armstrong of Dundee United and Partick Thistle's Stuart Bannigan all caught Stark's eye as his side made a winning start to their UEFA U21 Championship Group Three qualifying campaign.

Stark said: "Fraser is a confident boy. He is a type of midfield player that is prevalent in the modern game. He takes things, keeps the ball moving and gets us going.

"We had a lot of good performers. I thought Armstrong was a class act in the middle of the park and Stuart Bannigan got about his midfield work and helped us to get a foothold in the game and control it.

"We started off a bit nervously but recovered well and played some really nice football and did the damage.

"To get the goal before half-time was a great boost and I'm absolutely more than satisfied by the start to the campaign."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
