    Bain
    Toljan Simunovic Ajer Tierney
    Brown McGregor
    Forrest Ntcham Sinclair
    Édouard
    De Vries
    Benkovic
    Bitton
    Hayes
    Rogic
    Johnston
    Burke

    Something a wee bit different, wee bit risky w Ntcham but he did enough at the weekend for me to get into the starting 11 whereas Rogic hasn’t been up to it, Toljan’s * but there’s no one else if Lustig’s injured, question of Johnston over Sinclair but Sinky edges it

    I'd play Ajer at right-back before Toljan. Toljan is rubbish.

    I'm not sure I'd fancy Ajer up against Mulraney. He's quick over 10 yards and can go inside or out.

    I’d play Ralston over Toljan even though he was pish at the weekend as well.

    Mulraney will be virtually playing left back trying to cope with Forrest..

    Hopefully. If it's tentative and only the odd goal in it then he might give him more licence though. He's no world beater but he could cause problems.

    I’m sure he’ll be fine.

    Until we’re 0-1 down :fear:

    I'd play with three at the back, but if we play with four, Toljan should be a last resort; he's absolutely useless.

    Aye, I'm not convinced with Toljan but I'm even less convinced with us playing 3 at the back. I can't recall a game that it's worked well with this squad.

    3 at the back is a shambles because we don't have the players capable of playing it.

    We leave far too much room out wide which leaves our wingers penned back defending and the opposition the freedom to switch the ball and pump long balls over the top which we don't cope very well with.

    Correct. Also blunts us out wide in attack, stops overlapping runs from full backs which in turn forces us to play it centrally, where Hearts will load bodies and make it impossible to break through.

    4-2-3-1 all day for me.

    As long as it's 4 at the back I'll be relatively happy.

    If we play a formation that allows the front 3-4 to be a bit dynamic positionally even better.

    We'll run all over them if Forrest, Eddy, Johnston, Rogic are allowed to roam a little.
