Looks alright to me - no idea about how good Stone is, but surely has to be better than Goaldown.

 

I thought Meshino had fallen out of favour? I would certainly give him a shot in this one.  We need people to run at defenders and force them into errors - always a good tactic.  Oh wait...

Sounds increasingly like it's only a matter of time until the virus gets out of control here. Putting aside the resulting deaths and economic damage, let's ask the important question: what would happen to the league if many weeks of fixtures need to be abandoned due to quarantine measures? Relegation cancelled?

Who knows, I doubt they have anything in place to deal with this.

I haven’t seen much of the laddie Stone but we’ve 3 Keepers on the books who have all failed to deliver for us so why not give the kid a chance. Big game for us big risk but we won’t know how good or ready he is if we don’t give him the chance. 
As for Meshino I think he’s the best of what we have for options to play out wide from what’s left available to what I’ve picked. Henderson, Moore & McDonald haven’t set the heather on fire when in the side & this could be the game for Meshino to finally get back on track.

Not a clue if White is out I just simply don’t rate him. Hardly finished a 90 mins since being at the club and hasn’t exactly shone when playing I’d rather see Ben get the chance if Hickey still out

Would be surprised if Meshino started in this game. Stendel said he wanted more work off the ball and not just fleeting glimpses of individual skill. He was hooked against St. Johnstone in the 60th minute and appeared to give White little supporting cover in the time before it. Stendel can ideally choose from Walker/Meshino/Avdijaj , so I suppose it's the one that can add graft and flair that will get the nod.

No arguing that we are the worst team in the league. Since the break Hamilton and st mirren have been poor. It’s not so much straw clutching as realising we aren’t the only pish team down there. Ross county, though out of reach right now, are also very poor of late. 
 

Think they’ve all got old firm games left to play as well. 

From the last 5 league games, we've taken 5 points, Ross Co and St Liedown 3, and Hamilton 1.

 

Hamilton and Ross County still have to play sevco, St Liedown still have to play both arsecheeks.

The storm is the least of our worries.

That horrible club will try their best to disrupt the game at every possible opportunity. Whether it's by committing fouls, time wasting, surrounding the ref, they will try it.

That's right - we will win this 5-1

 

I'm confident of us pumping them, but still don't trust the defence enough yet not to concede.

I am actually struggling to name a starting XI.

 

Put a scarecrow in goals, hope Souttar and Halckett have one of their good games, midfield matters not as they are all shite, throw in a couple of our shite academy graduates, hope Naismith has one of his good games, have a few more duds around him and Boyce upfront.

 

We will open our arms to Hamilton and welcome them to the Foundation of Budge arena.  It is a buffet for most.  Budge will be there taking time out her Missionary work to meet and greet some random suites with no attachment to the club.

Media talk of El Gato being dropped - at last. I'd play Zlamal, Stone has been mentioned as a possibility only seen him once v Cowdenbeath in the Tunnocks cup and while he's a good prospect I would wait before giving him his debut.

Yep. The fact that those around us are pish as well and that they have hard fixtures is all that keeps me going.

Curious about Stone probably still too young ? Think Gordon was almost 20 before he played .

I'm sure some on here have watched him a few times ?

Can't seem to find any info on his height build etc

Haven't been through full thread, but just back from a journey into town. 3 way traffic lights for roadworks on Stevenson Road. Took roughly 25mins just to get from Saughton roundabout to the temp traffic lights at Stevenson drive. So heads up for tomorrow to those travelling over from the west. 

If already posted, then hope you all had a good sleep! 😴😁

This. We will win on Saturday. I think St Mirren are a far harder test for us next week.

Smith is the best right back, it's his best position. I don;t get this plying him in midfield when we are struggling at the back.

I'd have Smith RB and if Cochrane is fit bring him into midfield.

              Boyce  Naismith

 

Controversial, but I think Irving could do with sitting out a game, or coming on in the second half. Not a knock on him, but he's maybe been shouldering too much responsibility. As good as he looks, he's still  young.

 

Frees up an extra midfield space  for a super attacking lineup with 5 players who can create/finish. Want to see more of Avdijaj. 

5 attackers with a diligent defense should be more than enough to effectively press and keep it tight at the back.

 

Garuccio is our best Left back not named Hickey. If he's fit, i'm picking him ahead of White 10 times out of 10.

 

Smith can drop back to provide extra defensive cover when one of our defenders decide to go walkies. I like the high press but I think at least 3 of the defenders/holding mid should always be within a position near enough their own half to retreat safely with their back facing the goal.

That's perhaps an overly simplistic and crude way of describing it, but I think a big issue of our defense is that all 4 defenders seem to be too far forward at once, leaving a gulf of space for counter attacks to run in to. Both Souttar and Halkett love coming down and playing the ball. That's not inherently a bad thing... just one at a time please lads.

Hamilton's role in life is relegating Hibs.  We're not Hibs.  They are even worse hit with injuries than we are.

 

We should be crushing them.

Brian Rice to his team:

 

’Whenever we get the ball in our half don’t even look up, just batter it up the park, preferably into the wide areas then chase after it as fast as you can. They’ll do their best to give you a chance to score.’

 

’Whenever we get a corner or free kick in their half, send it into their six yard box for a header from one of our big guys. Don’t worry about getting challenged by their keeper or central defenders - it won’t happen.’

 

’Whenever you get sight of their goal just shoot. Even if it’s right at their goalie he’ll let it in because he’s a bit scared of the ball. Also, don’t worry how far out you are. He almost let in a 45 yarder from Stevie ****ing May.’
