    Griffiths

    Think we need to get some game time in a few players legs and rest a few at the same time. Would have Sinclair on the left but as he's been frozen out, no point putting him in. Bauer may need to play in the Cup Final so he needs the game time now.

    Although I'd imagine Edouard, would want to play against opposition from his homeland. McGregor needs to be managed better or we'll run him into the ground. Broonie needs to be used wisely too, can't play 3 games a week, he's bound to pick up an injury.

    I think a win is really important. A win would likely win us the group as I don't think Cluj will win away to Lazio. No point resting too many.

    This is a tough one to pick a team for, on one hand he’s already said he wants to win his home games and win the Group. On the other; Ross County away, Hamilton home and manks at Hampden are now MILES more important in between Rennes and Cluj.

    The run of 4 games from Thursday in 11 days risks burning out your main guys and Thursday represents the best chance of leaving some out IMO.

    Play out best team and rest players if/when we are 2-0 up. Means we can play a B team in cluj

    I'm guessing that Rennes aren't putting out a full team for this one

    Just think we have the luxury of resting a couple, doesn't need to be major.. We should take the opportunity...

    Edit: Lenny saying full strength in the Herald.. Oh well :56:

    Forrest Edouard Johnston (if fit)

    Start fast get a couple of goals hopefully Cos I doubt Rennes will waste key players in this, then get bitton Griffiths and Shved on

    The way I see it, 5 players are needing game time management at the moment
    Brown, CMcG, Christie, Forrest and Eddy.
    Don't reckon it would be wise to rest all 5 for 1 game-unless its last game and we have already secured top spot.

    We have Bitton for SB
    Nicham for CMcG
    Tam for Christie
    MJ for Forrest.
    Griff for Eddy.

    All are adequate quality to replace, so would like to see planned rotation, except for Zombie games.
    And if we were to start say Griff, MJ and Nicham, we would have the big guns on the bench, just in case.
    Not a big gamble.

    Lazio can still qualify as long as they beat Cluj by 2 clear goals and we beat Cluj away so Lazio will be hoping we put out the best squad we can.

    Stade Rennais will no doubt be playing an understrength side too. They have nothing to play for. We can afford to rest one or two players.

    This is European football lads! No dicking about with playing the second team or resting up players! We're in this competition to win it. I want a full strength team going out there even if rennes aren't and I want a high scoring win to give us fans what we deserve in Europe. We have the team to deal with it. A 4-1 win will be nice to set up a nice away trip to Cluj in a few weeks.

    Don't expect a lot of changes after Lennon saying he'll put out a full strength team. I think it could be 3-1.
