    It might be now if Brown, Forrest and Jullien is out..

    Hope JK had something to do with that midfield 3 under the rat, if he plays Bitton a DM ill be pretty ragin. :56:

    ——————Barkas
    Frimpong Duffy Ajer Elhamed
    —————-McGregor
    ————Ntcham Christie
    ———————Ely
    —————-Ajeti Eddy

    That would be my team based on who is available.

    Turnbull will start if Brown is out I think.

    Ntcham and McGregor deeper with Turnbull more advanced.

    Hopefully Elyounoussi gets the nod on the left.

    To be honest I worry putting Moi on the left of a 3 5 2 leaves us defensively thin on the left. I think I would rather he played slightly to the left behind the striker of a 3 5 1 1 with Taylor allowing the 2 to overlap.

    Are you hoping? :fear:

    If I recall right... we had a spell under the ‘rat’ when we’d been playing a bit like now.. he got an injury that kept him out for 6 or so games and meanwhile our midfield came alive (McGregor especially) and more dynamic play all round.

    Don’t want any injuries really.... but if it’s fate that deals Lenny a new ‘hand’ rather than his management skills :confused: and the glaringly obvious.....then so be it.

    Yep remember that well, but Broony came back and had a superb season. The rest did him good, it can do again.

    I’d play 4-4-2, we don’t have a player with the correct attributes to play wide left of a 5, it’s been glaringly obvious for weeks now. So until we get a decent wide left player stop playing people out of position!!!

    Play 2 strikers, no Brown, give Soro and Turnbull some decent time. And Connell in for Taylor. Done.

    Hail hail...

    If we played Elhamed on the left of the back 3 (as he does for Israel) and Frimpong RWB we could drop into a 4-2-3-1 when out of possession. Allows Elyounoussi to play on the left and can play 3-5-2 when attacking.

    It’s something we could look at but we’d definitely need to put some time in on the training ground rather than just trying it. We are too easily cut open just now so it would be worth a try.

    Agree that there needs to be some work done on the training ground but Lennon himself has said the team are fluid and can smoothly switch formations during games.

    I think 3 CB's will be risky with the pace of Hibs and to get the best out of Taylor we need to go for 4 at the back but would still like 2 strikers as I think Eddy needs support up top

    Barkas
    Elhamed Duffy Ajer Taylor
    Frimpong McGregor Christie Elyounoussi
    Ajeti Edouard ​

    Big test for Taylor v Boyle he is easily one of if not the fastest player in the league.

    Also don't feel Ajer should be playing today given Hibs are good in the air would prefer Bitton tbh he's on form and think he has the skillset to compliment Duffy best
