Hello all. Thought a post regarding tomorrow might be in order. Firstly this is a massive game for Lennon and that's where my worries lie. He has to tinker with our shape, and steer clear of three at the back, to get on the front foot from minute one. Will he, who knows but i think he will stay with it, and this allows them to get up the pitch quickly, and to be fair they use it well.

I would stick a nice tight 442 in amongst them. This would ensure anytime their FB'S tried to move forward one of the front two can pull across and move a CB. and none of theirs will fancy that. If we get it right we can have them putting crosses in from deeper, much easier to defend.

No point really naming a team till we have some idea who is available, but for me Polish Paddy must start. He's quick and sharp, also on evidence seen is now as strong as a bull. He could rattle them by bursting wide to a longer through ball behind their FB's, He's also a wild card as they have never faced them. Worth a punt for me.

Since they clawed their sorry asses outa the grave they have been waiting for this, signs of us faltering. Almost every game they fancy it, nothing won bar a few battles. This team need to produce, i don't care what anyone says, we have not been performing. Win tomorrow and normal service can be resumed, but we need to be on it from the whistle.

Finally brother beaton. As we seen in the ibrox game, where moreorless was allowed to kick, punch and actually walk across Ralstons back, he will give them every opportunity to pressure us. So let's be cute and not dive in. We have better players, and we are winners. prove it tomorrow.

Dont think 442 would work mate. Last 2 games they over ran us in midfield. They would have 3 and we only 2 if we play that way. Bound to be over run.
3 5 2 griff eddy up top. Laxalt for taylor.

Raymundo I would go 3-5-2 as well but I reckon he will go 4-5-1. They will be playing 4-3-4 with Beaton up front, so having 4 at the back keeps an eye on him lol.

Our initial formation is not the be all and end all . It is how we adopt to nullify any threat that arises and to create opportunities and chances up front . Mistakes must be kept to a minimum with colleagues sniffing out danger before a mistake becomes a disaster. . As long as our players keep remembering they are better than the Rangers2012 players and as long as we make them feel their inferiority, we should be all right . Nerve wrecking, hard to watch at times, but that’s nothing new.

ha ha Green Jhedi "the third" what did you do with 1 and 2 lol good to see you posting again.
As for tomorrow, our bench will be as important as our starting eleven, with French Eddie, Griff and Ajeti (if he makes bench) all lacking fitness or game time.
Klimala has been playing regularly, so I would start with him as his speed will be an asset. McGregor and Brown will need to put in a shift.
But we have better players, so Lennon should just say, go out and prove it and dominate game.
As for Beaton, make him impotent by not giving him any decisions to make, although I worry he will target Brown and try and send him off, but world will be watching and anything too obvious will be highlighted and embarrass him.

They also rely on their full backs for width and I think it will go down to how we compete and win a lot of 'personal battles'. Taylor v Tavernier and Frimpong/ Barisic will be defining areas as will the middle of the park - obviously.
Been watching some of Eddy's first games against them and I hope he can recover that same mobility and confidence as they really fear him Griff, Ajeti and Paddy would also run riot on a good day, so at the end of the day; score more than them and we beat them and Beaton.

4231 and press them from the start because they will try and press us.


Ajer Jullien Duffy Laxalt

We have to show more desire to win the match, everyone has to win their personal battles all over the pitch. It has now got to the point that just having better players doesn't get you the win in this match, they have improved and have been showing more desire and will to win in the last few matches hence the reason they have been getting decent results against us.
Everyone wins their personal battle and then the cream can rise to the top.
