Team for tomorrow then folks?

Recommended Posts

I would personally go for this eleven:

 

Banks

 

Neilson

Tall

Berra

Goncalves

 

Driver

Stewart

Palazuelos

Cesnauskis

 

Ksnavicius

 

Velicka

 

4-4-1-1 Formation with Audrey off Velicka, as its clear that Pospisil won't play and our options up front are powderpuff to be fair. Think this will be Shaggy's choice too. Thoughts?

Tall is still injured. Karapidis to play beside Berra.

I would have Chesney and Driver getting right up against the Hobo's full backs and supporting Velicka with the 3 man midfield allowing them to break forward and give us a very dtrong base especially given the weak defence.

Is this what you would choose or what you think the team will be? Surely you can't want to see Ksnavicius play for us?

 

My team in the absence of signings would be

 

Banks

Neilson-McGowan-Berra-Goncalves

Driver-Stewart-Jonsson-Palazuelos

Chesney

Velicka

 

Chesney in the hole. Driver on the right. If Nade has been busting his gut in training this week I would play him upfront instead of Velicka. But I doubt he has.

Fair enough, I actually thought Karapidis played well against Killie, which I think he is capable of, just that he seems to switch off at key times (1st derby; last year at home to the sheep when nicholson scored). Much rather he was CB than RB though - see Robbie thread!! :P

The only problem I have with this team is that it is distinctly a 4-5-1. The reason I say that is because Cesny is a winger and Stew,Jons&Pala are very much centre midfielders so you can guarantee that cesny will not support Velicka as much as you'd like because of the need to cover left mid.

I think they are just being realistic. Before this season, I doubt many Hearts fans would've been picking 4-5-1 or 4-4-1-1.

 

But as we've all seen this season, that is likely what we'll be doing tomorrow.

True, i see your point and do agree with it in a way i think i am more hoping that Frail does not go back to 451. Its at Tynecastle and we should attack.

We don't have the right balance of players in midfield to play 4-4-2 successfully. With only Jonsson as a ballwinner, 4-4-2 puts huge pressure on the defenders. We're also lacking any mobile strikers who put in the work up front - defending from the front - for a 4-4-2.

 

My view that the reason we have struggled with 4-4-1-1 this year is that the 4 in midfield have often featured 2 lightweight wingers as well as Stewart who is positionally indisciplined. Also we have tried to play the likes of Ksnavicius, Velicka or Elliot in the hole - and none of them are any good there. Chesney's a better footballer than any of them and might do well there.

Don't like the 4-4--1 1 midfield too lightweight due to 2 wingers. Plus Velikca ain't exactly best up top on his own. In additon not convinced we have anyone who can play behind a striker, far from convinced Chesney is up to it.

This should be the team in my opinion. It's basically a 4-5-1 becoming 4-3-3 in attack and as you say pushing right up on the Hibs fudbacks.

 

Bringing Jonsson back in for Ksnavicius tightens up the midfield and with him sitting alongside Ruben it gives Stewart more licence to go forward.

 

Ksnavicius's form has dropped in recent weeks and he needs a spot on the bench for a while as I still think he can do a job when called upon.

But Chesney has never played there in his career, why start now?

 

Make them swap wings maybe, but that doesn't make any sense. You'd then also have to shift Ruben out to the wing. Just because he's left-footed doesn't mean he'd be good out there.

Yep, I think Chesney could play in the hole. Could find space in the areas where Ronaldinho and Henry do in a left inside forward position too!

 

Driver on the right wing.

 

And Ruben on the left of midfield. He has the ability to cross the ball nicely from there.

 

I am sick of us playing 2 out and out wingers and getting outmuscled in midfield.

I don't think its about to change until we get a new manager.

 

Its been one of Frails biggest failings since being given the caretakers role. I'm dissapointed he has not attempted, at least, to address it.

Cesnauskis

Palazuelos

Johnson

Driver

 

Velicka

 

I think that whilst it is a 4-5-1, it is a team that would allow the LM and RM to push up into auxillary striking roles and put a lot of pressure on the Hobo full-backs.

 

The other 3 in midfield will be able to cover if the Hobos break.

 

I like having Driver and Chesney as the wingers, as they can swap sides to torment the Hobo full-backs even more.

ust running through this thread and got thinking about Romanov's comments that we lack quality now. If you look at a typical team of 2 years ago, it doesn;t half show how far backwards we have gone. I don't think any of the current lot would get into the team of 2years ago! the one anomoly - ROBBIE?????

and he doesn't have the right of mix in MF.....we really do need an out and out ball winner....Jonnson's nearly there but still too similar to Ruben and Stewart (the latter I don't rate anyway) ....we really are missing Kingston so it's better to go with 5 in MF as long as the wide men get forward in support :)

exactly how i see it as well mate. chesney and driver swapping flanks as well would be good. would be nice to see them staying far up as well and allow the centre mids to do all the ball chasing/winning.

Nah keep them up there and I'll settle for that.

 

If we are gonna select that team lets play it as a 4-3-3 not 4-5-1, and forget about all this 'player in the hole' pish. That only works if you have Bergkamp or Kaka in your side...and we don't.

 

Velicka needs support, either tell Cesny and Driver to play as forwards, or play 2 up front.

i was working at heriot watt yesterday and spent a good hour watching the lads train, they had an 11 a side game about 20 mins a half, i'm thinking it was the team 2 play hibs against those not lucky enough to be playing,

 

i can confirm they did not set out as a 4-4-2

Stewart, Jonsson and Palazuelos are too similar, one of them has to go.

 

Jonsson on the bench then and same team as last week.

 

We can drop Ksanavicius for Kingston when Kingston returns but for now, same team as last week.

Jonsson last week was a massive miss to the team.

 

Ksnavicius was absolutely absymal. He shouldn't be near the first team squad.
