What do you think the starting 11 will be for the game tomorrow?

Heck has rotated all through the pre-season an LC campaign, so its not too obvious what he's thinking.

Assuming there are no unexpected signings or returns from injury I would go with...

Rocky

James
Jackson
Hanlon
Mackie

Horgan
Mallan
Vela
Allan
Newell

Kamberi

Has Newell done enough to be first choice? First time i'd seen him on Tuesday and thought he was P15H.

Think Newell could keep his place tomorrow. We will have lions share of the ball and need likes of him and Allan to open up teams sitting in, he's a wee bit slow but has good feet. Over the piece he will start more at home than away.

A few teams without Doidge - can't see Hecky not starting his biggest summer signing (money terms anyway).

Kamberri is the proven score at this level though so unless he goes two up front Itís Kamberri for me to start

I think we will see Maxwell in goals, his distribution is much better than Marciano's which is why I think he was brought in.

I'd rather have Marciano for his shot stopping ability. Distribution is a nice to have in a goalie, whereas Marciano's reflexes are worth a few points per season.

No doubt his distribution is better, but I'm certain he was just brought in because Bogdan and Laidlaw left. Ofir starts without any reasonable doubt IMO.

I have some faith that the number 1 position will be Rocky's to lose. He was brilliant for the entirety of Heckingbottom's spell last season, I don't think that went unnoticed.

I would start with Maxwell today. We are going to have the lions share of possession and Maxwell is more likely to start a decent attack with his distribution than Ofir.

In games that we are likely to face more shots against Ofir starts for me.

sauzee=legend
03-08-2019, 09:06 AM
I would start Flo, just watching the work rate off the ball, closing down defenders etc - Flo does twice as much.

I thought about that but my only worry with whittaker would be someone with pace playing against him, if the st mirren wide players arent that quick(coaching staff will know better than me) then whittaker would be my choice

He is kicking it further out of play this year! Rocky is and has been a great keeper for us but the games Maxwell has played it is very noticeable that we get attacks going quicker and have the ball more often purely because of his distribution. You can stop a goal with a great save like Rocky but it is safer to stop one by simply having possession. I don't think there is a problem having either keeper but I'm interested to see what Maxwell would be like in a game where we are under pressure and the keeper has to make big saves. If his warm ups are anything to go by he has great agility. As it is Rocky will likely start based on last season and take it from there.

Eyrie

If the most important part of a goalkeeper's duties is starting play then I'd put Maxwell in goal.

Since it isn't, then I will always pick Marciano as the superior shot stopper.

Iíd be disappointed if Mackie isnít selected today. More than good enough and deserves a chance to make the spot his own whilst Lewis is unavailable.

Think the majority of the team picks itself. Only really left back and the CBs where there is some dubiety.

2-0 Hibs today.

And up front? Which will also affect midfield so I think itís a guessing game all over the park

I think itís a 4-3-3 with Vela Mallan and Allan. Newell and Horgan on flanks and Flo up top.

Would be very surprised if those 6 arenít starting.

I'd have went Daz before Jackson and Mackie before Whitts but it is a balanced side and a balanced bench too. Only thing that is missing is some pace off teh bench and a left sided left back both of which we have but are missing due to injury. I hope he plays Whits at left back

I think the argument would be that Whittaker isnt going to get any better as a player. Mackie needs to play games to improve and learn what he needs to develop. Thats the reason id sooner see Mackie play before Whittaker.

Good touch.
Great range of passing.
2 footed.
Not as quick as he was but not slow.
Experienced player who understands his position.
Can move into other positions if required.
Good shot on him.
Should be strong enough defensively to cope with St Mirren.
Fairly tall, decent in the air.
Fit lad, should be able to last 90.
Strong mentality, experience can see him work through adversity into a better performance.
Takes scapegoat attention away from other players.
