If Sky decide to change things at the 11th hour, it shouldn’t. McGinlay now out for 4 to 6 weeks. Donnelly doubtful too. 

Mcginley a big loss judging on Monday performance.  Donnelly not a big loss if unfit.....wonder if Grimmy crocked him!!! Lol

Given McGinlay out, this would be my team.

                                  Carson

        Donnelly     Gallagher     Lambie 

                O’Hara          Campbell 

Hastie                Turnbull                      Polworth

                Watt               Long

Really a 3-5-2.

Not bad but I would put Hastie left instead of Polworth and Seedorf wide right. If Donnelly not fit then Maguire to come in

I reckon Lamie will go to left back, and Donnelly will drop in to centre half given he played there more than once during pre-season. If both do miss out I reckon we have problems. I think we all know that we're a bit light at the back, but was hoping it wouldn't be an issue by week 2.

I'd personally either drop Hastie or move him to the left, and would prefer Watt starting over Seedorf. With the exception of White, I think you could start any of our forwards anywhere along the front 3 and be confident of causing problems for the opposition purely out of not knowing who was playing where. I don't know if we want to be going with 'out and out' wingers based on the number of times we got to the by-line the other night or the number of crosses we got into the box. 

 

Carson

Grimmy - Gallagher - Donnelly - Lamie

O'Hara - Turnbull - Campbell

Long - Watt - Hastie/Seedorf/Polworth/Hylton

Keep Donnelly away from the pens and Long away from the direct free kicks and we have chance.

I agree with most of that team Stu92 (presuming Donnelly is fit). Have no idea what we do if he’s not. Mugabi? Worrying......

Although I would go with Seedorf Watt and Hastie (on the left) as the front 3.

Not as rough as 6.30am! Is it officially moved?  What about folks that have paid £12 to watch it on stream? If I’m getting up to watch game at 6.30 the damn stream better be working. :fuckyou:

Someone over on P&B saying it’s the Motherwell Hibs. 6-6 game that’s on Sky at that time not the Utd game.

Totally.  Turnbull obviously no want to look big headed so hopefully robbo has sorted that act of stupidity out.

I’ve thought that our preferred formation was 5-4-1 but that’s. A crude assessment. Apparently it’s 4-2-3-1.

The fitness of defensive personnel will be crucial tomorrow. If Donnelly is fit to play I hope it’s not in central defence.

Who else would you play in central defence if Lamie is needed for left back?

The first question is "Is Donnelly fit to play". If he isn't then its academic. We would have a choice of Mugabi, Maguire, Devine or Hussain. Personally I'd opt for one of the first two but management will know the fitness and readiness of individual players.

One player in isolation after a false positive. 

Hope it’s not a defender

The story on the official starts “we can confirm that a first team player” 

Our official site and official Twitter must be written by 2 different people.

The site says a "first team player" who will self-isolate for 10 days.

Twitter just says "a Motherwell player" who will self-isolate for seven days.

Doesn’t mean it’s a ‘first pick’... Think Oneils40yarder is alluding to that
