Totally agree but the only other viable option is Ohara alongside Gallagher and I think we need him in the middle of the park to complete.

Do we play 5 at the back with Gallagher and O’Hara and Mugabi either side of him in the middle?

We need to remember that like last season this season could finish at anytime and whoever is bottom at that time will be relegated. The bar was set when Hearts were sent down. Going into the latter part of the season the quicker we get ourselves off the bottom the better.

Fortunately for us, the league would be called on points won per game, so if it were to happen right now we would be above both accuse and county.

 

 

 

unfortunately, when we lose tomorrow, we drop below them. So no pressure lads.

I doubt the league would be called so early. 5 games to go..yes, 17 to go...no. 

A point tomorrow or better still 3 is long overdue. No red cards please  but thats not entirely within our control.

I'm looking forward to getting a glimpse at how Alexander is going to have us play, but I don't have any expectations for a decent result. So far none of the approaches from the other teams in our league have worked, maybe Alexander knows something they dont. 

I'd prefer us to have a go at them, but that can often end up backfiring with us conceding an early goal. The best i can hope for is that we get in their faces more and take our chance when it comes. 

Not going to bother predicting a score. Gallagher to get a red card so he doesn't have to play the next game.

I know what you mean - I think it's just come a little early to judge.

The new manager can't be judged on this if it all goes pear shaped. In Scottish terms they're a very strong side indeed and in fact in Europa league terms too. Two seasons in a row they have qualified for the knockout stages and this season topped their group. That's how big a challenge this is.

We can hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.

Seedorf starts, no O’Hara (injured?), Mugabi keeps his place. Guess you can only go with what you’ve got but deary me.

Seedorf? I suppose Alexander needs to give everyone a chance but he'll soon find out that Seedorf is not the answer.

Someone could’ve told him that in advance so we didn’t have to waste a sub

Seeing that team and the bench really is depressing stuff.

Wow, Seedorf starting is a hell of a brave move.

I get the point of working to a set formation .

Keep hearing people say 'Well have a strong squad and should be able to get up the table.   Our team sheet and subs confirms we'e in the brownest of the brown stuff.

To be fair Alexander has stated the same thing.

I really hope we can take something from today to give us something to build on going up to Aberdeen and dingwall.

Not feeling optimistic though. Hope I'm proved wrong. COYW

Grimmy & O'Hara both completely out of the squad. Any injury stories ??

So, Long is still out and MacIver has returned. I don't think we'll miss O'Hara, at least not in midfield.Midfield looks a bit powder puff and lightweight.  Still, players have the chance to impress.

Sick bed for one & after effects of a head knock last week for the other.

I suppose he wants pace as part of the front three, Hastie isn't available and Lawless is just in the door.

Need some big performances today, let's see what happens.

Yet, the sycophants on here had him pencilled in as a ‘better option’ :blink:
