Scottish Premiership Game 4: Hearts (H) Saturday 26/08/17

Recommended Posts

Hearts will surely bring a big support through for this. They had about two thousand at Rugby Park so you would expect at least the same again, probably more.

 

We'll learn a lot by whether Robinson sticks with Rose, Fisher and Tanner or tries something different.

Good to see its confirmed in Motherwell times today that we have Frear back for this one, Hammell fit as well but i cant see him starting on saturday. Will be interesting to see if we bring Carson and McHugh back into the side.

Don't think there's the slightest bit of doubt that those will be the first two names on the teamsheet

What are the odds on 3 red cards or more?

do they still have Dave McPherson in the team?

I think if Carson starts it's very unfair on Griffith's. He is in possession of jersey and had fine game and clean sheet. If Campbell and Bowman don't start it's also unfair. I would keep same side as Saturday but have Campbell, bowman and McShug starting in place of tanner, fisher and rose. If Frear fit then maybe start him in front of Bigirimana

Griffiths is the backup keeper. No reflection on Griffiths or his performance, but there's no reason Carson shouldn't start the next game. That seems to be the way the goalkeeping hierarchy operates.

 

Nice to have two good keepers, though.

Campbell and Bowman definitely both deserve to keep their places.

Although I agree that they both proved good enough to start, with McHugh back, Campbell will be on the bench again and if Frear is fit then I'd suspect that he will get the nod ahead of Bowman.

This would give a midfield/forward line of Cadden, McHugh, Rose, Bigirimani, Frear and Moult with the defence as last week and Carson back in goals.

If the midfield needs more dig then Rose or Bigirimana will make way for Campbell. Bowman will replace either Frear or Moult at some point.

This whole squad depth thing is a novelty eh? First time in a long time there has been some serious debate over who should be starting in a number of positions. It's not often you read 3 or 4 different starting line ups on here, all of which have their merits.

So long as Rose isn't in the starting XI. He offers nothing. Similar to Jake Taylor that he just does nothing.

Bowman comes on at half time, that's his thing, when has he played well from the start, whereas he has had a number of good second half contributions.

His debut vs Hamilton when he was all over the park winning knock ons etc and laying chances on a plate for Moult

No one plays 442 now as it leaves you outmanned in the middle of the park. Your option is to play 3 centre midfielders and one winger but that tends to expose one full back and make your attacks predictable and easy to shut down..

McPherson seemed to get away with murder a lot of the time leading Cusack to finally snap and inevitably get sent off.

 

Part of a period which has left a lasting hatred of Hearts for supporters of a certain age. Not that I bear a grudge!

Despite some of my closest mates being Jambos, their team and Director of Football are easy to dislike.
