George Burley sacked – no surprise

George Burley

George Burley, Scotland Coach 2008-2009

I just read on the BBC football pages, George Burley was sacked earlier today.

It’s hardly a shock. After the 3-0 drubbing in Cardiff it didn’t look good for Burley. That, together with the recent dire World Cup qualification attempt, the SFA had to let him go. And having followed Scotland’s impressive efforts under both Smith and McLeish, this downturn was hard to bear. The SFA had, in my mind, no choice but to act.

Now the question is being asked, who’s going to manage the Scotland team going forward? Hopefully someone with a bit of passion.  Sounness? Strachan? I’d like to see Walter Smith back, but that’s unlikely. Whoever takes the job, let’s hope they can inspire the team and fans like not so long ago. Then we can think about maybe having a chance in Euro 2012.
