Assuming everyone is fit bar Maclaren, would go for the following:


Bogdan

Gray Ambrose Hanlon Stevenson

Milligan

Boyle Hyndman/Slivka Mallan Horgan

Kamberi

A little stuck, as it's hard to think of a reason to change a team that won 6-0. But I think Agyepong and Horgan would be worthy of bringing back in the fold; just not at anyones expense. :dunno:

I just feel Hanlon's experience might just be crucial at Parkhead and there's no way we can drop Ambrose.

I'll have no complaints if Porteous does play though.

I wouldn't drop Slivka, not only was he excellent against Hamilton, he's shown he can cope with Celtic in the past when they're on top form too last season. Think he'll relish a game like this.

Vini1875
08-10-2018, 11:00 PM
I would the 3-5-2 set up if MacLaren is fit. Kamberi up on his own is going to play into there hands. I think they will be out to prove a point against us, so it will be up to us to dictate to them. Battlers required, so the likes of Agyepong and Horgan are out of it as they give very little defensively.

We played them at Parkhead at this time last year and had a right go. They were much better then than they are currently.

We’ll stick to what we’re good. Lennon won’t do anything dramatically different IMO.

Subs: Lots of attacking options - MacLaren (CF), Horgan (M), Hyndman (M), Porteous (CB), Nelom (FB), Marciano (GK)

Not Used: Shaw (CF), Angepong (M), McGregor (CB), Whittaker (FB), Laidlaw (GK)

Would also happily have McGregor and Porteous as my centre back pairing although Daz has been out for a while.
Both aggressive ball winners on the ground and in the air.

I know he'll be coming back from injury, but I'd be temped to throw MacLaren straight into the fray.

Celtic's defence get can have trouble handling a striker who runs in behind, and I think Flo would be struggling up front on his own.

And I just get the feeling that Flo can't wait until Macca is alongside him....he seemed to energise when Macca joined him off the bench against Killiie I think it was, and his game went up a notch.

Time to be brave!

Hanlon will be fit but no way would I be changing our current back line.

Same, 4 clean sheets on the bounce, no reason to make changes there. I also think Milligan has played a major part in those clean sheets too.

Boyle gave Tierney all sorts of problems last year, that will be a great battle again.

He should be available for selection, but no guarantee he will be picked to start after it being a few weeks since he has played.

I'd throw him in though.

I wouldn’t want to play Boyle as wing back. He will terrorise boyata this time with his movement across their defence. In fact I’d be tempted to tell him to stick to the Celtic right side as Lustig looks terrible this year.

Lennon is a tactical genius, be interesting to see whether we have a go from the start or go for a cagey affair and counter attack.

Either way Lennon has a real tough selection when the boys are all fit.

That'll do for me, although easy-oasy whether Slivka/Hyndman. Either way, the starter runs his socks off with other subbed on for final 30mins. Double sub with Thomas coming on for Boyle. Jamie Mac likely to get some game time too?

southern hibby
09-10-2018, 09:40 AM
Not really bothered what formation or who goes out against Celtic except we need someone to stick Brown in their back pocket and dominate him.

One last thing we need a strong ref too as getting important decisions at Parkhead and Ibrox is crucial.

Shaw was pretty rotten for Scotland under 21’s during the week and Lennon was there to watch so i think you may be right.

In Shaws defence, it was a thankless task with Scotland not seeing much of the ball and up against 2 huge defenders however that’s likely to be a similar story today. I’d be surprised if Shaw starts.

Don’t think he’s at his most confident just now, seems to be lacking a spring in his step.

I think his confidence took a bit of a hit after the cup game v Aberdeen. He missed a couple of really good chances and it was mentioned by Lennon after the game as well. I think a wee spell out of the limelight might be good for him.

At his age? He just turned 20. Not saying he will or will not make it, but to say you hoped for more consistency at his age is mental. Look at Kamberi at 19/20 and before he came to hibs and compare game time and goals scored. Give him few years and let's see where he is at.
I do think he does need to get some game time in reserves and get his confidence back though.
