Fearing the worst midweek tbh ! although they are pretty dire, i think they will bully us, likes of Campbell & even Ferguson will be knocked off ball ,far too easily i suspect.
Hope im wrong & come out all guns blazing, but its not really the D.M way is it ?

Nailed on to be an absolute hoof-fest, might as well play Cosgrove and Main together up front.

I'm not sure we will ever see that happen but I honestly don't think it's as bizarre a combination as it looks on paper. Would we really be any worse off by getting Gallagher to fuck out the team and playing 2 strikers? I for one don't think we would. Of course it goes without saying I'd rather see Wilson alongside Cosgrove but each passing week that goes by with him kicking his heels on the bench makes me wonder what the deal is with him. I can only rationalise it that he has some sort of injury which the club are trying to keep secret that limits his participation. It cannot be that DM doesn't fancy him in the system we play. If that were the case it would have been pointless signing him permanently.

Record at Tynecastle is pretty pathetic. I'm half hoping that Hearts win today's Edinburgh derby on the grounds that they are so shite that they don't have 2 wins on the trot in them. However it would give them confidence and could start a revival. Nope just cant get any enthusiasm at all for this game.

We stole that yesterday, i would say Livi had the 4 best chances of the game & their keeper wasnt tested once.
     Our style of play is mind numbingly slow & boring to watch, somehow we got the 3 points through good luck, but we were shocking.
Thought Gregg Leigh was good & Considine our motm (again).   
The negatives for me, McGinn (in particular) & Hedges were both totally ineffective , never getting past their man once.  Ferguson was poor again & Campbell i'm afraid just looked like a wee boy in midfield.
Main put himself about, but lets face it , he had a thankless task.
              Makes you wonder what we actually do all week on the training ground :dunno:
Was expecting to see Wilson on the park especially as he did well as a sub, last time out at Livi.

The major positive for me,  bathed in glorious sunshine :thumbsup:

Our record down there isn't great at all, is it? I can't see us going at them despite their piss poor start to the season, just not McInnes' style I'm afraid. He will make it harder than it has to be, but nobody will care if we get into the Semi Final.

Hopefully they get beat today as well, get their fans even more restless heading into Wednesday.

Cosgrove will come in for Main, that's the only guaranteed change I can think of, maybe Logan for Vyner too, can't understand why he made that change yesterday unless Vyner was carrying a knock, or he was trying to get minutes into Logan.

I'd take yesterdays shit all day long if it meant the same outcome!

Lewis

Logan
Devlin
Considine
Leigh

Ferguson
Campbell

McLennan
Wilson
Hedges

Cosgrove

Both teams playing some horrific football, so hard to see it being a classic.  We should hopefully take some confidence from Saturday's game, in that we didn't concede and scored two goals...

Difficult place to go to at the best of times, but i'm sure we'll see another DM over thinking tactic. Be interesting to see what, if any, changes he makes for this.

2-1 Hearts, Cosgrove

Christ, that was a shite set of highlights. Feel bad for those who actually took time out of their saturday to go to that.  If that was eyebleeding, what is Wednesday going to be like?!?

Watched it there on Alba & it was certainly a lot worse than it sounded at the time. Just a totally inept performance with absolutely zero cohesion, we don't have a particular style of Football. I would have thought playing Gallagher RWB would have made more sense than playing McGinn there. Livingston cut us open too many times with absolute ease and Erskine's fresh air swipe in particular was criminal, thankfully for us. The midfield got absolutely bullied by Bartley, and Main offered the square root of fuck all, he had plenty of balls played up to him, head/chest and feet and he pretty much lost possession every time, granted he never got service from the wide areas in and around the box, but his overall play was fucking abysmal.

We are going to suffer a doing at some point, today could quite easily have been 4 or 5 in Livingston's favour, there keeper had literally fuck all to do ( other than pick the ball out of the net ) and they can absolutely feel aggrieved, the fact we've been outplayed by Livingston is pretty disappointing. However, we take the Clean Sheet and the 3 points, guess for the time being that's all that matters.
