    Back to simply just wanting a win.

    I would take 1 nil win right now.

    I'd start Bain and leave out Brown. However I think both he and Gordon will start.
    I think Killie will be very well organised to sit in, a million sideways passes isn't going to win this.
    I'm also working on the assumption Boyata is still out.

    I think that’s Brown back in the team again no matter what now.

    But him and Gordon shouldn’t be starting.

    Zero chance we are going to go back to a back 3, especially if it’s with Jozo and Lustig that’s a disaster waiting to happen, may as well just play Benkovic by himself at the back and fire on Griff and Sinclair.

    Is it coincidence with brown and ntcham back in the midfield last night we were slow as * in the midfield in the first couple of months in the season .
    rogers needs to go back with mcgregor and christie and rogic in the midfield as its more direct and the pace is faster .

    No way Boyata makes this game so for sure it will be Benkovic and Simunovic in the middle at the back on Saturday which is fine. I agree with you that we don't need Brown from the start against Kilmarnock on Saturday as they will just park the bus so go with McGregor, Christie and Rogic in the middle instead.

    Kilmarnock are like our bogey team, we seem to barely ever beat them. When I think of * December home games as well over the years I always think of Kilmarnock sneaking draws against us.

    Surely due to beat the *.

    I hope you're wrong there mate. There are games when Broony's style and experience will be invaluable to us.......for me, this isn't one of them.

    At them from the word go with pace and the free-flowing stuff please and hit them for a couple early doors. Anything less and Clarke will just in and not change from his plan till late on.

    As others have said, we need to revert to what has been working so well.. and if that means Ntcham and Brown are on the bench then so be it.

    It’s a test for BR to leave his Captain and a potentially petulant French susperstar out of the 11, but it should be done until there is an injury or drop in form.

    For me 9/11 pick themselves when fully fit.. the only debate is GK and who comes in for the inconsistent Sinclair, do we need to change shape to compensate for that inconsistency and play McGregor out of position on the left?

    Gordon/Bain
    Lustig Boyata Benkovic KT
    McGregor
    Forrest Rogic Christie Sinclair
    Edouard

    Or

    Gordon/Bain
    Lustig Boyata Benkovic KT
    Ntcham/Brown Christie
    Forrest Rogic McGregor
    Edouard

    Just think the midfield was playing better without brown and think we went back to passing the ball back and sideways pish last night and would have left the midfield as it was over the last few weeks .
