A very important game coming up in regards to pulling away from the pack, on wednesday evening (or morning for some of us :greengrin)

What team would you send out?

Hopefully we didnt expend too much energy on saturday as we didnt really need to get out of first gear. However the dons had a much harder time against raith...which hopefully took a lot out of them.

With that in mind i would like to see us try and stretch them with some width on the park. And no i dont mean nade.

Id go with...

Smith

Wotherspoon
Hogg
Bamba
Murray

McBride
Gow
Miller
Galbraith

Riordan/Nish
Stokes

I know that team is never going to be the starting line up, but having a winger on, and gow as a proper attacking midfielder I think it would give them more than enough problems.

Whats your thoughts?

Edit: I would even consider bringing Mccormack in at right back and wotherspoon taking Zoumas place in midfield to stretch them even more. They have a poor attack, which i think darren would be more than capable of dealing with.

I'd suggest playing with 12 players would allow McGhee the right of complaint for a change..........:wink:

Only one change from the team that started on Saturday, and that will be Bamba in for Hanlon.
Yogi wont start making changes to the team that are doing the buisness on the park at the present moment.

Obviously im not advocating playing with 12 players ya bams :greengrin

Im suggesting either nish as he scored 2 on saturday, or Riordan who hasnt been at his best lately, being given a chance up front.

Ach we should just keep 12 players :greengrin

Ok then, i'll take out zouma,

Although could also take out riordan leaving stokes up on his own, with gow, zemmama and galbraith pushing forward to help stokes out.

I'd like to see this team get a run out and see how many teams would take points off us for the rest of the season.

Smith

Wotherspoon, Hogg, Bamba, Murray

Zemmama, Miller, McBride, Gow

Nish,

Stokes

I can't see any weak links or passengers in that team.

Same team thats been starting most games recently. Why are people suggesting we change a winning team?

This team has scored 14 goals in the last 4 games, would be mental to change it about now. We have so much quality on the bench that quite a few of those players are capable of changing a game if we need it.

Gow will be a very good signing for us but he should still be starting on the bench at the moment.

I'd imagine it would be the same team possibly with Bamba for Hanlon. I'm not sure why some think Hughes is suddenly going to drop the likes of Nish and Rankin and bring in the likes of Galbraith?

Only change I would make would be Bamba for Hanlon ( the young man is unfortunate to be dropped but Bamba is our best defender). I cannae believe I would leave out Zemmama but what a sub to bring on, along with benji and Gow.

i reckon we have to be playing bamba. He left for the ACN and people seem to be very quick to drop him- though i know hanlon has done well.

frequently motm this season and rated as a multi million pound player who we may be able to seriously cash in on.

Yeah, maybe Bamba for Hanlon. Hanlon has done well agreed.

I'd start Gow tho, he will want to show up Uncle Walt, so that means unseen worker Nish benched.

Aberdeen will be looking at us, and really hoping to take us down to thier level. We can't have players hiding at any point of the game - that's not how good championship contenders go about thier business. Because they can find themselves too often on the fringes of the game, Zemmama and Riordan sit this one on the bench, at least until Aberdeen are forced to abandon any sort of bullying/ frustration tactic, at which point, they may be introduced to take advantage of the little cracks that mid-game changes can make.

Wotherspoon and Murray give us lots of width from full back positions, and both McBride and Rankin are happy to cover for thier respective player, with Rankin being more than capable of the overlapping run.

Up front, Nish's link up play, I think, is key to how we play. Gow is a player who can keep the ball all day, making space for the deadly Stokes, and score goals himself. While people may think that Riordan and Zouma are better than all three, I do believe that the team is more than the sum of it's parts, and that the previously mentioned combination means we will dominate the game more, and become less dependant on scraping goals and games.

I'd keep the same team as Sat bar (possibly) putting Sol back in for Hanlon.

All going well, I'd like to see us finish with the same team that finished on saturday. The extra pace in attack towards the end of a game is just what tired defenders like:greengrin

FWIW, I think it will be a tough game, the dandies being better away from home just now. I know the yammish are *****, but it was a very accomplished performance at the PBS with some nice goals.

I think that the soapies will tank hertz, so we must keep on our toes on wed and keep the pressure up with a good win.:agree: A tough month is coming so me must be prepared mentally and physically.

I pray big nish and deeks give us more goals on wed so that we can all keep bickering until Saturday:greengrin

As long as Yogi keeps our midfield 3 intact I'd be happy with any combination of 3 strikers up top. Zemmama, Benji & Gow could work just as well as Nish, Stokes and Riordan. To think that we still have Byrne and Galbraith in reserve our strength up front is superb, just need to find the right balance IMO.

He won't drop Hogg and I think he'll keep Zemmama for second half impact, along with Benji and Gow.

I think the only change he'll make is Bamba for Hanlon.

Consistency of selection has been key to improved performances over last few weeks ( as well as return of McBride).

In Yogi we trust :wink:
