Line up face St Johnstone

Recommended Posts

The dicker, tish, power triangle is the strength of our team. I wouldn’t swap this with anything outwith the old filth. Our problem has not been that you cant play exciting, expansive football with these guys in the team - we have done in the past. It’s just that we don’t currently have the same strength/goal threat as we had in the past (Jones, Stewart, boyd). I remember the night in 2018 when we battered st Johnstone at rugby park (2 nil going on 10). All three plAyed that night but jj, boyd and Erwin started too. Burkey form as good as anything under scc. But we need 2 others to help him out. Kiltie not the answer for me. It could be kabamba and brophy. Hopefully Whitehall takes his chance. I don’t think dropping one of the midfield 3 is the answer. It’s improving the Front 3.

Findlay Power Burke Kabamba pretty much pick themselves. Last few years we have had 7/8 who are certainties. Brophy if firing would be one. Dicker and Tish arguably aswell. Although 442 is Dyers stock formation until now. Dicker is better at sweeping up and alongside Power has been really successful. I’d leave Tish out and bring Brophy in if fit.

Totally agree

Looking forward to watching the match, but hoping AD will be more attacking in his selection.

If the defence needs extra protection at home to St Johnstone then they aren't good enough. Dicker's had two matches in four days since his op so give him a rest. 

If Brophy is available, let him loose. 

Haunstrup must be pushing Pinnock for a place. Either that or give him a shot at LB and leave Waters out, although he's done nothing wrong.

Depending on how the game goes, give Dikamona and/or Whitehall a run out. 

Whatever, use subs!

Can't believe so many people are suggesting Power and Tish as a midfield 2. As was shown in the Hibs game they both chase the ball too often and get caught out without someone in there with them. If we're going 4-4-2 then we need Dicker in there with one or the other of them IMO, playing them both makes it far too easy to play through us.

Pinnock changes to water or Kiltie but Haunstrap play winger or left full back than Kiltie play left winger

Indoor locations like Bingo Halls, Cinemas, theatres, churches, swimming pools, restaurants and pubs are just so risky that everyone attending has to be vigilant in adhering to distancing and identification rules. Little evidence to show that is currently happening and the result will be what we are seeing, a revival of the virus. Close all these locations individually if they are cutting corners on adherence for 1 month during which time they will re-adjust to what is required.

Football grounds are outside locations but with entrance and exit arrangements, unlike those at Rugby Park, mainly along internal corridors, the risks are self evident.  If we could parachute fans into their seats, it could be safe from cross infections, but until a vaccine is found, football will have to be viewed via modern media channels.

Economic pressures to open locations and save employment, mental health and general well being levels,are all recognised but we must wipe out the virus before it tries to succeed in doing that to us.

I posted elsewhere about this. You could make this work by not having a left mid.

When we had Mulumbu first time. We didnt have a right mid some games. 

It was Dicker Mulumbu Power and Jones in the midfield with Brophy upfront with Boyd. 

It could work but he'll need to have the tactics on the nose

We could attempt to play a 4-3-1-2

Burke in the free role. With a trio of CMs 

For example 

                     Rodgers 

Millen Broadfoot Findlay Haunstrup 

           Power Dicker Tshibola 

                        Burke

            Kabamba Brophy(Kiltie)

             Power Tishbola 

Burke                                 Pinnock 

            Kabamba Whitehall 

 

Feel that we need to have two up top to try give Kabamba more support and stretch the defence to create some space for our wingers to work with. Would try and see what a Findlay & Dikamona partnership looks like, might help us stop losing early goals.
