Too early?Clock says 2 days and 20 hours to go.That's close enough.Ok I don't know who'se passed as fit and I don't know who'se suspended.But I'll pick a team from the knowledge I know.Ok Marciano's got to be in goal.Maxwell had me a bag of nerves and he was partly responsible for the 3 goals that went past him.If Greys fit then Grey, if not who knows?If Stevenson's fit then Stevenson.Between them I think I'd put in Jackson and Hanlon and pray he's on form.Then in the midfield I'd have Mallan,if he's crocked it's got to be Vela.In front of him I'd put Horgan on the right,I'd put Allan in the middle and to the left of him Middleton.Then up front Kamberi definitely and again I'd pray that Doidge has found where the goal is.

I didn't enjoy typing that, I hate one up top, but I think its the best we can do. The defense really need bodies in front of them.

I still think we're desperately short of a defensive midfielder. Someone who's mobile, aggressive in the tackle and capable of passing upfield to his more attack minded teammates....

I am the only one who thinks Porto could be coached into this role?

He's too good at CB to start messing around with his development. We need to buy this type of player.

Fair enough. Opinions an all that...
But being moved from his original midfield position, out of necessity, to play as left back hasn't seemed to hinder Lewis Stevenson's development.
As I said, it was just a thought 👍

I liked Ben Stirling and Josh Campbell in the friendly games.
Alas, I wasn't at those games so I can neither agree or disagree on the merits of either player.

But I think we can all agree the middle of the park is an area where we need to toughen up.

Yup, time to see who is out there.

I popped along to the Development game v Tranent Juniors and Porteous didn't play when it would be an ideal opportunity to get some game time so I read into that they were not taking any chances.

He did play a full game v Elgin though so unless he has picked up another injury then this might be his comeback game v St Johnstone.

Hibs do have some potential in the Development squad alongside the many who just make up the numbers.

Its all very harum scarum though with a real lack of composure and the final ball so often lacks quality. Feel as if there is a tension in the team and everyone is trying to hard to impress and don't want to make a mistake..

Wasn't at that game, but I do think Gullan and Stirling have a very good chance of making the breakthrough to the first team squad very soon.

Ben Stirling is a player I also really like in particular but I have been saying that for 18 months now and he still seems just a little bit short. Maybe its concentration or sometimes just a bit slow.

It could definitely come though as he has all the physical attributes and positional sense to make a top quality midfield player.

Real strength and power and keeps his head high always looking for the killer pass.

Gullan took his goals well but looked more of a attacking midfield player but went up front as our options up top are non existent with Shaw now gone from that age group.

pretty close to what I would have.

I want Kamberi/Doidge up front to be given a run at least v 'lesser' clubs.

Trouble is I don't want to drop Mallan... so your compromise is as good as any. Also agree (reluctantly) with benching Hanlon.

Stirling merits a chance and has the physical presence to deal with St J's huddies.
