All rights reserved.DESPITE the gloomy midweek prognosis of Kenny Dalglish that it might take 10 years to turn around Scotland's footballing fortunes, others with better-tuned antennae believe the 2008 European Championships could herald the much-needed breakthrough.Craig Levein, for one, is on record as saying that managing Scotland in four years' time will be a great job. By 2008, the new Leicester boss reasons, there will be a pool of experienced and talented internationalists in their mid-20s who will restore pride to a nation which has fallen catastrophically to 77th in the world rankings.Short-term vision should be avoided when looking at the bigger picture, but even so it is alarming that four of the players who could already be considered the creative and industrial hub of Scotland's 2008 team are struggling to play first-team football for their clubs. Darren Fletcher, James McFadden, Stephen Pearson and, more contentiously, Michael Stewart, are among those who must progress and flourish if Dalglish, Scottish football's Victor Meldrew, is to be satisfyingly proved wrong.Some of football's most discerning judges have decided that all four are special. Alex Ferguson spotted the potential of Stewart and Fletcher when both were still at school, while Davie Moyes, who has just signed a new contract with Everton, signed McFadden from Motherwell. Martin O'Neill saw enough in Pearson to prise him from the same club.For Stewart, footballing life has been sour for some time, but Fletcher, McFadden and Pearson featured regularly for their clubs last season. The latter played 49 games for Motherwell, Celtic and Scotland, whereas this campaign he has played just one full 90 minutes, against Falkirk in the CIS Cup.So, where has it all gone wrong for the talented quartet, all of whom were members of the last successful Scotland Under-21 side?The biggest fall from grace has been that of Stewart, who, it should be noted, is still a Manchester United employee. The boy, who as a teenager regularly felt the fatherly hand of Ferguson on his shoulder, started just three Premiership games for him before being loaned to Nottingham Forest last season.There, he started 11 games for a club on the slide, but it was an unhappy and ultimately bitter experience. With no future at Old Trafford he was taken to Tynecastle by Levein in what should have been a great move for player and club with United still paying his wages.A 20-minute cameo performance in the second half of a pre-season friendly against Fulham, when Stewart ran the show, augured well, but three months later the former Scotland Under-21 captain has started in only three games and lasted the full 90 minutes just one.Watching a 10-man Hearts being over-run during the second half of their Uefa Cup game against Schalke 04 at Murrayfield 10 days ago, it seemed wasteful that a box-to-box midfielder of the calibre of Stewart was left on the bench. But the word from inside Tynecastle is that his fitness is still not at the desired level, nor does he yet appreciate the work ethic demanded of the club's players.Fletcher remains in the Manchester United first-team squad, but although he played 90 minutes against Crystal Palace in the Carling Cup on Wednesday night he has been very much on the fringes of Ferguson's thoughts.That hasn't stopped him being a keystone of the Scotland side, despite still being qualified to play for the under-21s. Rainer Bonhoff, who would no doubt appreciate his presence, is optimistic that Fletcher's absence from his club's midfield will be temporary."There is no doubt he will come back," said Bonhoff. "He played a lot of matches last season for Man United, and also all the internationals for Scotland. As a young lad he is suffering from that. It will take a wee while for him to recover and recharge everything."Ferguson's faith in the player seems to be reflected by his unwillingness to let his midfielder out on loan. Wolves, Leeds and Wigan - all Coca-Cola Championship clubs - are among those reputed to have made an approach.Tommy Burns, who will be in charge of Scotland against Sweden on Wednesday, said: "I think Sir Alex still sees him as a vital part of his squad, and rightly so. It's just a case of Darren being patient and waiting for someone at United to get injured or suspended."It probably tells against Fletcher, even in a season when the United midfield has been poor, that he has yet to score a first-team goal for his club. If Ferguson changes his mind, he could do his old captain Bryan Robson a favour and loan him out to West Bromwich Albion.Terry Butcher, the Motherwell manager, has always maintained that McFadden and Pearson should have stayed at Fir Park for at least another season, and events are perhaps proving him right.At least McFadden has kept in touch with first-team football through the Carling Cup, the competition in which England's top clubs give their young players a chance to shine. The jury on Merseyside is out on his contribution for Everton, where on his few appearances this season he has been deployed wide on the left rather than in his favoured position up front.McFadden has never been anything less than a star for Scotland, but there were always doubts whether, at the age of 21, he had the strength and athleticism to thrive in the Premiership. Rumours persist that Rangers will buy him in January; it wouldn't be the greatest shock in the world if they did - nor if the player welcomed the overture.Pearson, the late developer of the quartet and arguably the least naturally gifted, is perhaps the most baffling.If O'Neill intended to use him sparingly after signing him from Motherwell last January, that's not the way it worked out. Probably even to the manager's surprise, he fitted seamlessly into the Celtic side.Contrast that to this campaign, when the only time he has played more than 20 minutes in a league game was as a substitute against Livingston - and only then because a defender, Stephen McManus, got injured.The word on the street is that Pearson has been frozen out because of an incident on Celtic's pre-season tour to North America when he is said to have clashed with assistant manager John Robertson. According to Celtic and the player's agent, Willie McKay, there is not a kernel of truth to the story."Stephen is just waiting for his opportunity," said McKay. "It's difficult for young kids at the big clubs and that's the case in England as well. They're not all Wayne Rooneys. Celtic was always Stephen's favourite team. He could have gone to Rangers, no problem, and got more money, but he's gone to the team he's supported all his life."If Pearson thought life was going to be easy at Celtic, his view of proceedings from the bench will have altered that opinion. This season he has found himself behind Aiden McGeady and Ross Wallace in the pecking order.None of this helps Burns, or indeed whoever is appointed the next Scotland manager, but the predicament of Pearson, McFadden, Fletcher and Stewart is just one of the realities of managing the national side."The longer they go without playing for their clubs the harder it gets to be thrust into the top level of inter-national football," said Burns. "They can get by on adrenalin, but tiredness kicks in and they can become a weakness in your team."Fletcher and McFadden will play on Wednesday night, and Burns said: "I think we have to stick by them. They are going to be the players of the future for us. We have to make them feel wanted and not let their confidence go down."Yes, they are under pressure, but good players assume responsibility and that's why Fletcher and McFadden are so special. At a young age they've taken the national team by the scruff of the neck, scored vital goals and tried to create things."14 November 2004back to previous pageDo you believe Iraq will go to polls in January?YesSmoke Signals (dvd/video release)Reprint Movie Poster27 x 40Da Vinci Code by Dan BrownPage 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 of 10 [ Back | Next ]Art Xpo ExcellentWebsite Award200 Plastic Bottle TagsBT32-007 23.95Art PrintSize: 39 x 24 in : 29.99Literature and LanguageLiterature and Language authors
