    Henri Anier and Ojaama are both starting for Estonia against Northern Ireland.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    Tait blasts the ball into the stand with his left foot every game because he can't hit it up the left touchline properly. We need a proper left back. Tait and Grimshaw can compete for right back.

    2018/19 Game 30: Hibs (A) March 16th 3pm kick off

    Darren McGregor is out for Hibs tomorrow. Their defence has been quite ropey in the two recent Friday night games so hopefully we have a right go at them.

    Livi and Hearts away are difficult games for Hibs.

    Aye Aldred and Turnbull.

    "I'm completely focused now on helping get the team into the top six, and seeing how we can continue to build." Grimmy knows the score.

    He might already have one! They didn't bother to announce it last year. I think it will be best for all involved if George can save SPFL football in Coatbridge and then find a suitable spot somewhere on the English pyramid.

    We could still give the young players games against Hearts and Killie who are fairly pish and won't have much to play for. The game against Celtic brings in an extra £100,000 which is the wage for a good striker for next season.

    Brendan Rodgers said goodbye to the Celtic players than right afterwards Scott Bain had to do a press conference where he feigned ignorance of the situation. We only get PR lines through the media.

    Why would it be his last game? We haven't taken that position with other players who have signed pre contracts and Declan Gallagher is still playing for Livi even though we have apparently have him tied up. We are only in contention for the top 6 because of Turnbull and Hastie's goals. We need to play the strongest team possible.

    2018/19 Game 29: Hamilton (H) March 9th 3pm kick-off

    I would have liked to have seen Scott yesterday but I can understand why Robinson gave Johnson a shot. He was terrible though and we should be looking to get shot in the summer if possible. All 11 starters played very well and McHugh was decent when he came on. Turnbull and Hastie's goals are the difference between a relegation battle and the top six and take the pressure off Main and Ayribi. I thought that Rodriguez had a great game yesterday, he looks much fitter than the first half of the the season.

    You've got to wonder if McCormack was actually interested in playing for us or just used the club to get back to Glasgow. The guy barely broke into a jog when he was on the pitch. We would have hammered Ross County with the right team on the park.

    Aye all of them because it's complete speculation.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    Aye it's good going but we should look at how to do things better in future.

    No one is saying give them all extended deals just the ones that have clear potential to make the first team. As i've already said boys not making the grade is part of youth development. It shouldn't put us off.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    We drew at home with Accies and got gubbed off Thistle with Gordon involved. Robinson eventually swallowed his pride when things were going down the pan against Killie and Lionel kept us up.

    Newell's dad is mates with Robinson. Gordon appears to be a favourite of Robinson and was absurdly played ahead of Ainsworth when we were deep in a relegation battle. Our club has a tradition of nepotism and dodgy deals. It seems quite often that players from our youth system are held to a higher standard by the club and some fans than players we sign.

    Robinson... How Do We Think He's Doing ?

    The second time Brendan Rodgers has been robbed this week.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    That's great news. They both got extended last year despite not performing well. Neither of them will have played in the first team after being extended. Tens of thousands of pounds pissed away.

    I think Aryibi would probably be more effective on the right.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    If developing young players is a big part of our model then we should always have 20 and 21 year olds on the books. I've seen people citing Dom Thomas and Luke Watt but so what. It's as stupid as saying no more loans because of Connor Sammon or no more young English players because of Newell. There are always going to be more who fail than make it, that's the nature of the process. We sign plenty of total duds from outside the club to contracts, it's not the end of the world if youth development ends up with the players going to the lower leagues.

    Dropping him means playing Elliot Frear who won't be here next season either. We still have a chance of Top Six so i'd play him tomorrow and if he plays well keep him in the team until that's sorted.

    That's exactly what it looks like A cash out.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    We won't be selling anyone this summer so it's possible we need the money. Terrible budgetting if true.

    When is the last time you saw him play? He is never going to make it at Fir Park. Even last season he was behind Turnbull and Liam Brown.
