    Squad depth and quality

    Been a good few years since we had this much depth.

    A few weeks ago it was looking worrying with the injuries but we have brought in players like we needed and think about who didn't start tonight..

    Fyvie
    Keatings
    Holt
    Shinnie
    Super John
    Graham
    Forster
    Martin
    Eardley
    Fontaine
    Harris
    Marciano
    Handling
    Crane

    That's nearly a full back up team !

    Looks like really good competition for places also.

    The quality of our squad is superb, better than the majority of the spl.

    Now we have the correct formation and players in place hopefully we can make that step up.

    Will be interesting to see what his starting 11 is when everyone is fit

    Subbing Commons for McGinn.

    Any club in Scotland and other places besides would cream themselves with the very thought.
    Space to let

    The good thing also is now he can adapt the team to the opposition we play.

    Dylan who missed much of the start of the season has been outstanding since Fyvie and Super John have been out.

    Champs league player off then current Scottish International comes on...

    Wonder if the result against Utd will stop Lennon adding anymore players?

    Also let's hope we hear about Commons extending a deal sooner rather than later.

    Short term loan deal ends next week. NL has said that talks will be held soon. Think he will stay as after last night what player worth their salt would not want to play in that team.

    You could make a decent team out of those that didnt start last night.

    Marciano
    Eardley
    Forster
    Fontaine
    Crane
    Fyvie
    McGinn
    Handling/Martin
    Shinnie
    Keatings
    Holt/Graham

    If we can get Commons until the end of the season we'll romp the league.

    I was thinking about this on the way to work today. Let's say all players are fully fit and free of suspension. What would be the ideal starting eleven?

    Listening to the BBC sportsound podcast for the 30 mins after last night's game they are all waxing lyrical about the Hibs squad and the strength of our bench in particular last night. Great credit to is the fans who have backed the team in numbers this season both with ST s , HSL, Shares, cup final merchandise...we made it possible. And huge thanks to LD for backing Lennon. Hopefully get Commons signed and NL said last night possibly one more??

    For me it would be the same as last night but McGinn in for Bartley.

    As good as he was last night I just don't think we need big Marv in the majority of games

    Really tricky one. Our midfield is unbelievable at the moment. The defence probably takes care of itself, although the more I see of Laidlaw the more I liked him.

    For me at the moment we don't necessarily need a first 11, we should be adapting based on the opposition. So Holt/Graham may play if we need a physical presence up front. Although Bartley was immense I'm not sure he needs to start every game for us. But if we're drawn with Celtic in the cup he's just about the first name on the team sheet for me.

    The key I think is flexibility and apart from cover at fullback, we have some amazing options in this squad.

    I'd actually really like to see us play a decent SPL team in the cup as I think we'll vs more than a match for anyone bar Celtic.

    I like Fyvie but don't know who would drop out for him. If we continue with the same formation then either McGinn, Fyvie or Mcgeouch doesn't play
