  1. He is Scotland’s link between defence and attack. He sets the tempo of our game, picking out Robertson and Patterson bombing forward from full back, McGinn bombing forward from everywhere. He’s always available for a pass and helps us keep possession in tight spaces where in the past we used to hoof it. It helps that we have people comfortable on the ball throughout the team (add Tierney, McTominay, McGregor to the names mentioned above). He’s not afraid to get stuck in as well. Was widely praised for a spectacular clearance off the line on Thursday night. It’s not an exaggeration to say his reputation in Scotland is growing with every game he plays for the national team.
  2. Good to see some balance on here. From the outside, I’ve seen a fair amount of animosity towards Gilmour and started to get the impression this was shared by a significant majority of Norwich fans. For my sins, I’m a Kilmarnock fan (spiritual home of good old Gary Holt) but have been keeping close tabs on wee Billy as he went to school in Killie. It’s a pity the loan spell’s not worked out the way people want but he seems like a good kid with a great attitude. Nice to see that there are Norwich fans out there who recognise this. I’ll sign off now - but best of luck for the rest of the season.
  3. Found this video on a Chelsea website. Thought you lot might like it in fairness not a bad showreel for a kid in his first full season in the premier league
  4. I read all that 3 times and still have no idea what you are drivelling on about!
  5. Man of the match v Austria away (last 16 of the euros), man of the match v Denmark at home (semis at the euros) next…
  6. I’m a Scotland fan, but I’ve got no beef with Norwich. I’d say that Norwich simply have to build a cohesive midfield unit and Gilmour will be a star. Maybe try him at the base of midfield alongside Normann? I’d also suggest that you’re not really a Scotland fan. Otherwise you would have watched him going toe to toe with Denmark midfielders twice his size last night. Is he the finished article? No, he’s 20. Also he’s not N’golo Kante (but who is really?). He needs a team around him who defends too. The upturn in Scotland results is largely down to Gilmour. Does he defend for us? Of course, if you’ve ever watched Scotland play you’ll know we have our fair share of defending to do even against the minnows! Build a solid system and he will do his share and help Norwich in the process. Good luck for the rest of the season.
  7. Oh right, so Scotland have W6 D1 L1 (including England, Denmark twice, Austria away) with a passenger in the team.
  8. Glorious commentary from Ally McCoist last night. Gilmour spins and drives 40 yards at the Denmark defence. “They must be some team, Norwich”
