Yeah.

I'm not saying Hughes is Cannavaro but playing Cummings up front on his own would be playing into his hands. Get Holt on as well and they'll take care of each other leaving Cummings to target the other centre half.

Bartley

Humphrey Fyvie McGinn Boyle

Cummings

I'd have Marciano if fit, otherwise that's the team and set up I would choose. It becomes a 4-5-1 when you don't have the ball, and with them playing their high pressing game it leaves them wide open to counter attacks wi pace and that's what Humphrey's and Boyle give us. I would also like to see them tracking back onI the yams wingers.

Always a tough place to go and pick a team to win the game. Hearts are terrible if you can pin then down and attack them down the wings but our strongest area is in the middle of the park.

Think we have to go with Holt and Cummings up top to unsettle their defence and Bartley, Mcginn and Fyvie also need to play.

Would probably go with the diamond to start off and bring on Boyle/Keatings and Humphrey in the 2nd half to stretch the game. Defence picks itself for me.

Buzzing now. Come on hibs!!!

We need that IMO. Need to be physical. Holt doing that will give Cummings the space he needs to do what he does.

Playing on what will end up a tattie field today, dont think itll suit us having wide players who are more about dribbling and pace rather than pinpoint delivery. Marv and Holt in for me as although Cathro doesnt seem to have the 'big pack of ba****ds' mentality common in most Filth managers, they still have a few units thatll need battered about. Soften them up a bit and maybe introduce Keats, Boyle, Humphrey if theres any weariness. Most of their new guys have barely played in 6 months, think the intensity of a derby in that pitch might see them fade early doors.

Really happy with that starting line up. Only questionable selection is Forster ahead of Fontaine but this is just the sort of opportunity Forster has been waiting for so hopefully he grabs it with both hands.

Yep. Not played a competitive game in a while. Hopefully be up to speed from the start. More dangerous from set pieces than Fontaine which will help, also when defending them, Hearts have quite a few big laddies in their team. Glad to see Marciano back in.

They had the width and there full backs like to go forward.

But we should have physical presence in midfield,m and Holt needs to hold things up and get involved.

Good opportunity to use Boyle and Humphrey as impact subs with their pace too, Boyle particularly as I do like him but he tends to be more effective coming on when legs are tiring.

Glad to see Forster getting his chance, I've not been convinced with Fontaine on recent performances, so hopefully Jordon will not let us down. Nice big strong team to give as good as they get and the weather will be a big influence here, won't help pretty football.

neil7908
12-02-2017, 11:59 AM
So looks like a diamond with Keatings supporting the forwards.

That formation worked very well against SPL sides last season. Only concern is that we become overloaded on the wings and that we don't have much pace to catch up them on the break.

Having said that, Tynecastle has such a small pitch which combined with the quality of the pitch and the frantic nature of football in derbies, makes me think there won't be many break a way goals.

Overall I'm pleased with the team but Bartley and Forster will need to be match sharp and haven't played much football recently.

Fergus52
12-02-2017, 11:59 AM
Definitely wouldn't have played Keatings.

He tends to go missing in most of the big games I've seen him play. Also his first touch is very inconsistent which will be an even bigger issue on a pitch that small.

Hope the wee man can prove me wrong though!

I'm not his biggest fan but 1) He'll work with his socks off and 2) his set piece deliveries will be really important today.

With Forster, McGregor, Gray and Holt all dangerous in the air I think that'll be one of our most crucial attacking threats

Would agree with this. A few times the ball's fell to Mcginn in the middle but it's got away from him. Can only put it down to the state of the pitch. Shambolic for a professional team playing in their countries top flight.

Yeah not best for neutrals

I think Hibs have been great when Hearts have the ball, getting in their faces. When we have the ball in good areas though, McGinn and Fyvie in particular have been poor.

We need composure but also wouldn't do any harm to have a pop at goal and test this keeper
