Good one.

I've seen him closely at Preston and he's not good enough for the team. He is miles behind Griffiths. A good run of form at Aberdeen might see him in the squad but there are currently better options. 

you watching him closely doesn't hold much sway, you rate Forrest highly........................enough said;)

We don't exactly have a great spread of strikers to choose from so we shouldn't write off Stevie May.

Feck knows what we do if Leigh Griffiths gets injured, Stevie Naismith is past it now let's be honest, Chris Martin is not up-to international football and it just hasn't happened for Jordan Rhodes at international level either.

If May can start scoring goals for Aberdeen then he should at least be given a couple of starts in friendly games to show what he can do at international level.

Hell, we're that desperate, if Greg Stewart and Jason Cummings can start banging them in we should have a look at them in a friendly.

If may turns it on for us he would be the perfect back up to Griffiths unless someone else steps up to the plate. Griffiths is on fire right now and should be the first name on the team sheet for strachan

Look out for Simon Murray, if he bangs in more than 20 goals this season, has to be considered.

I forgot to include Steven Fletcher in that list before.

Despite the high hopes many of us had for him several years ago, he really hasn't been much good at international level has he really ? I don't think so. Take out those six piss easy goals against Gibraltar and he's got an international record of thirty caps and three goals. Not good.

Griffiths in his last couple of matches for Scotland (he was very unlucky not to score against Slovenia) has shown he's a key player for now. Puts in the effort for the team that others in the past haven't and tries to keep it simple and not over-complicate things.

Well he couldn't be any worse Scott Dobie, Kevin Kyle, Craig Mackail-Smith or Lee Miller surely ?

I had my doubts about Murray, but in games so far, he has been outstanding.

I liked the look of him at Utd and was surprised at the stick he got.

Not even happening for Rhodes now at club level.  9 in the last 43 games is not the scoring ration we're used to.  Neithe Rhodes or Fletcher started against Sunderland the other day.  Ross McCormack who I thought was decent and worth more of a shout is also completely out the picture at club level.  It would certainly be timely if May could recover form and confidence.

Griffiths as number one choice, Stevie May as back up.

a traffic cone can be third choice

Steven Fletcher should be nowhere near the squad. 😉

If May finds his form and Griffiths keeps his then that would be the most exciting forward two we have had for a long time.
