    I could see this being a high scoring draw, 3-3, double from Edouard and Elyounoussi to get his debut goal.

    I think we'll go with this squad

    Forster
    Elhamed Ajer Jullien Bolingoli
    Mcgregor Brown
    Christie
    Forrest Edouard Elyounoussi​

    Would be tempted to start Ntcham but i suspect he'll be brought on from the bench, Rogic and Johnston off the bench too.

    I’d be happy with this, Lenny would get slaughtered if we set up like that and lost but.

    We need to stay compact, maybe a game or two early for Elyounoussi.. Christie and Forrest can provide good cover.

    I’d be happy with it mate.

    We need to keep the momentum going just now mate, as annoying as it is.

    I meant the "Lenny would get slaughtered if we set up like that and lost but." bit mate.

    What some wee wanks on the internet think will not come into Lenny's team selection.

    Can't see him being that bothered about the Scottish media either.

    Will be a tricky game, but a win here would set us up very very nicely.

    Think we’ll get at least a draw.

    I don't care how we play(result is more important) as we'll get better as the season goes on.
    Saying that... i'd take the draw, but anything less than a win in our home games is a fail for me.

    Just watched them draw 0-0 with breast, playing a team full of * and they really didn’t look like scoring

    Rennes will be absolutely frightened of Big Ed probably subconsciously because he is French and watched him in international duty. Hopefully they are so concerned with him they'll lose track of Forres, Christie or McGregor. I'd say 2-0 for us. Think we were reserving some energy today.

    Agree about eddy mate and on the French subject I would start Ntcham before mcgregor on Thursday night

    Wee mans lost a bit of form recently and loooks knackered

    Every breakaway for Hamilton today was started by mcgregor losing the ball in midfield

    Forster

    Ajer
    Boli

    Broony
    McGregor
    Christie
    Ntcham

    Forrest
    Edouard

    Would play a diamond and try and dominate in midfield with plenty of legs. Ntcham a must with his passing, composure and willingness to get forward as well..

    Forrest playing off Edouard in a free role type..

    Looks a bit random I know but think it would work well..

    Yes 100% with Ntcham. Lad has been tearing it up recently and forgot about him. He gets a bit of stick but I actually love to see him on the pitch. If he is getting paid he should give his all. And I think he has had someone in his ear.

    This'll be a very tough game. Would be delighted with a draw.
