Would just like to see a win at home by whatever means necessary  - anyone know the last top flight league match we won at home?
 

The game v Rangers when Boycie scored on his debut? 🤔

Think this is the time to start Devlin without too many changes. 
 

He’s had his taste now, so a home game is where I’d look to introduce him from the start.  
 

We’ll need plenty energy to dominate v this team who’ll come out to hound us at every opportunity. 

You thinking Beni and Devlin in centre midfield?

1-0 da jambos. I still think some of our attacks are too slow.  Eg. Barry mackay in space looking for the easy pass, but the ball just goes sideways to halket first then eventually to mackay who by now is getting closed down ;( The opposition now have 5 or 6 defenders back dealing with about 2 or 3 from us and getting blocks etc. in and we only end up with corners resulting in hee haw.

With a vastly different squad though surely? The most important game in any run of fixtures is the next one...👍

I think it will be 1-0 to us. 

 

It will be interesting to see the lineup and formation after last week's draw.

 

Do we revert to a 3-4-3 or go more attacking again? 

 

My team would be: 

 

Gordon 

Halkett Souttar Cochrane

Gino Beni Devlin Kingsley 

Woodburn Boyce McKay 

 

Subs: Stewart, Moore, Haring, Smith, GMS, Armand and McEneff

 

Gino as a wing back is unorthodox but I'd hope at home to Livi we'll be on the front foot a lot and he'll cause more issues in an attacking sense than Smith.

I certainly think this will be our pairing moving forward. 

 

They will be a revelation together.

That's horrendous, no doubt. 

 

But, the further back in time you go with stats, the less relevant they become.  

 

More relevant is this season's performances.  Hearts have a GD of +4, Livingston have a GD of -6.  Anything other than a Hearts win will be a shocking result.

Strangely confident.  I watched Livi Celtic game and Livi didn’t look as strong as previous seasons … goalie looks well suspect.  We’ll score three.

They’ll be looking to sit in, counter and exploit any of our defensive fragilities. Important that we stay compact and control the game. Let’s hope we take our chances when they come.

They also had Shinnie playing as a striker which seemed odd although he took his goal well. Do they have a lack of options up front or was that just a tactical thing?

My source was off so not quite as bad as that but it is still bad.

Will take any win, just get the job done hearts, could have done without them beating the Tim's, but I predict a routine 2-0 win for the home side in the end.

It's a ****ing horrendous record. By the way, who in the squad are you referring to as Benjamin Button? :lol:

We're near the top and at home, they're near the bottom and are away, so we win, right? If only it were that easy. I still think we'll win though, 2-0 with a nervy last 20 mins till we get a late second goal.

I know GMS tries btw, my patience has just ran out with the amount of absolute sitters he misses every week.

This thread is heading towards the Classics already….

 

900 minutes without a goal against Livi.

 

No home wins this season.

 

We are clearly due a goal or 2 against Livi and it is also clear they aren’t quite as stuffy as in last seasons despite last weeks result.

 

I’d go back to 3-4-3.

 

Bring Cochrane back in. Rest GMS. Play McKay as attacking right sided midfielder. Devlin beside Beni. Keep Gnando in team - Boyce and Woodburn tucked in and around him.

I'd play Haring and Beni in the centre but the second Haring gets a yellow card he is subbed.

The only thing your source got correct was the team names.

With the players we have sooner or later we'll have a game when everything clicks into place and the ball keeps hitting the back of the net. I'm hoping it's this one. 5-0 including a GMS hat trick.

This will a very different game to all so far.

Livi will sit tight and deep and counter.

They will happily take a draw.

Could be a frustrating afternoon.

 

Hopefully, I've got this completely wring.

GMS has been influential in each of the last 3 games either by winning penalties or playing Boyce in to score, but otherwise his contributions have not been that great and he does love to sky a sitter. He's due a spell on the bench for me. 

 

I'd like to see a Beni/Haring/Devlin midfield. I don't think Ross County would've got a free pop at goal for the first one if Haring had been in there. Devlin certainly made an impact when he came on against Ross County and we simply can't drop Beni. That trio would own the midfield with Haring spraying the passes forward. With McKay used in the RWB role, Kingsley and the trio could shuffle across to cover when BMc goes on a wander.

 

I'd also like to see Woodburn given a bit more freedom rather than scrapping away in a congested midfield area. No idea if this formation is one that any team uses but I'd go for:

   

                                  Gordon

 

             Soutar           Halkett         Cochrane

 

McKay          Beni         Haring       Devlin         Kingsley

 

                   Boyce                     Woodburn

It still rages me we didn't score again against ICT and then got Celtic in the cup.  We should be in the cup this midweek instead of hoping the old firm win and hibs get pumped.

Think we'll run in 3 or 4 goals this Saturday,  got a feeling things will click in front of goal for us at the weekend

The sitters he's missing are shocking but he's had some assists and won a pen, so he is contributing. Not defending his misses though and he needs to do better.

You have a good point mate. He’s great for assists but the sitters he’s missed against Andersen, Hibs and County turn 3 points into 9 and we sit top of the table. He’s very frustrating just now

Yep, looks a decent line-up, with Devlin pushing forward when able and as required to support the front two.  :icon14:
