    I know that the game is a couple of weeks away, but it will be interesting to hear how people would approach the game.

    I think that it is a good opportunity to give some game time to fringe players, and give some of the academy players a taste of first-team football.

    I want a draw, as much as I think Petrescu is a * I hope those * lazio fail to qualify as I think they will beat Rennes. If we win Lazio would go through on away goals.

    This is a must win game if we are to have any chance of qualifying, could be a nervy night.




    Oh hang on .... :34:

    It might be wise to settle for a result that sees Lazio eliminated, if we have designs on going deep into the competition, actually. Plus, it would be nice to knock the fascist arseholes out.

    Who plays centre-half for the development side, aside from Hendry?

    We’ll still play a strong side, but I’d definitely rest a few regulars.

    I thought the same initially, but have changed my mind. Hear me out - if cluj go through, they will be cannon fodder in the last 32 and whoever they get will beat them comfortably , meaning a good team will progress. If lazio qualify, they could knock out a good side in the last 32. We know we can beat lazio so it wouldn't be a disaster drawing them In The QF.

    A good game to get minutes in the legs of the likes of Johnston, Griffiths, Morgan, Rogic and maybe even Shved.

    Christie, McGregor, Forrest, Elyounoussi and Edouard should all be rested with Hibs in mind.

    Dead rubber. Opportunity to give youngsters and fringe players a taste of European action. Leave as many senior players home as possible to give them a bit of extra rest in the mental December fixture schedule. Any players coming back from injury and needing games in their legs should play though, maybe Jozo.

    Rest most of the senior players, especially those who are on yellows, no point dragging them all the way out to Romania for a dead rubber.

    I'm going over to Romania for this and would obviously like to had seen a Euro away win but this is more of a dead rubber than the uncracked pack of Durex I took on my first lads holiday to Santa Ponsa.

    Too many big games in December to be risking our top players over, I'd send a shadow squad over and rest anyone we can. I'd even rest the bus driver and tell them to took an Uber to the stadium.
