Where Is Robson's Scotland Call-Up?

Where Is Robson's Scotland Call-Up?

Should Barry Robson be called-up to the Scotland International squad?

28-year-old Robson has been Dundee United`s most influential player for the past 18-months and after the 1-0 win over Aberdeen at the weekend, the debate has reared its head once again.

Dundee United supporters are probably biased, but last season an incredible 79% voted in favour of the former Caley Thistle and Rangers youth player being rewarded with a Scotland cap.

Captain Robson has blossomed under Craig Levein's leadership and became the club's top scorer with 11 goals during the 2006/07 season.

His crossing is extremely accurate, his free-kicks are deadly, and his special awareness is exceptional.....in fact, the only negative thing about Robson is his fiery temper.

The Aberdeen born midfielder received 7 yellow cards and 2 red cards in 33 games for Dundee United last season.

Ironically, Robson is so important to United - that Craig Levein actually left him out of the final 4 matches, because any further yellow cards would have resulted in a 4-game ban, which would have carried over into this campaign.

During the 1-0 win over Aberdeen at the weekend, Robson almost scored mid-way through the 2nd half, but his right-foot shot came back off the inside of Derek Soutar`s left-hand post.

At a time when Scottish football supporters are moaning about the lack of national talent, it`s a shock that a creative, passionate and clearly able player like Barry Robson is not part of the national side.

Wake up Alex McLeish and pick-up the phone, before another Scottish player gets disillusioned by the International set-up and moves down south to join an unknown lower league English team!!!

Boss pleased to get through

Manager Ray McKinnon was pleased to get through against Queen of the South but not particularly happy with the second-half performance.

Queen of the South 2 Dundee United 3

Dundee United took command of their Challenge Cup semi-final with three first-half goals before hosts Queen of the South staged a late rally.

Charlie Telfer and Scott Fraser both netted inside eleven minutes for the visitors and on loan forward Tony Andreu then added a delightful third.

Stephen Dobbie managed a reply early in the second period and Derek Lyle grabbed another during injury-time - but it's United meeting either St Mirren or The New Saints in the final.
