  1. On Wednesday we travel to Easter Road to play to play Hibernian. Or should that be Christmas road at this time of the year? I hope we get plenty of gifts anyway. Hibs got off to a mixed start to the season that saw them languishing down in the basement regions of the SPFL. From tanking Hamilton 6-0 on October the sixth to beating Hamilton on December the eighth they could not buy a win for love nor money. Even the bottom strugglers Dundee and St Mirren managed to hold them to a draw. Then on Sunday when Brendon Rogers brought his green and grey hoops over to the Auld Reekie they some how dug out a performance that sent Brendon's Rogered troopers back to Glasgow with their tail between their legs. Hibs were electric to be honest. They played a high energy quick pressing game that had the mighty Sellick short-circuiting all over the grid. The big question for Neil Lennon on Wednesday is that is this new found green energy sustainable to try the same tactics for two high voltage games in a row or will the Hibee's batteries be running on empty for the visit of Rangers. Rangers form of late has also been like walking with lead boots on. In the past few weeks we dropped two points to a bottom of the league Dundee team who had ten men for a large part of the game.We have some wonderful passages of football but when we get into the final third of the field we have been missing that cutting edge. Most teams having a packed penalty area where you need a killer pass which we have been lacking to make breakthrough. That is mostly caused by fear to take a chance and take an easier option. Poor decision making and sometimes just pure bad luck. One example of poor decision making on Sunday was Eros Grezda getting the ball about seven yards out just to the left of the goal. He had pulled the defenders away from lafferty who stood as free as a bird in the middle of the goal. Instead of a right footed pass to Lafferty he pulled the ball to his left foot and shot aimlessly into the side net where that corner of the goal was well guarded by the keeper and defenders. Hibs weak point is is in defence so I may be be inclined to go for a 4-4-2 with Kyle Lafferty and Alfredo Morelos up front. I know this hasn't been a great success in the past but if Hibs keep the same tactics as with Celtic and press the midfield high up then we may have to go for a longer game to force them onto the back foot. We all know that Ambrose is a walking time-bomb and he was accompanied by the nineteen year old Ryan Porteous who had a good game against Celtic but keeping a lackadaisical Édouard at bay is a different kettle of fish than a bustling Lafferty and ever working Alfredo Morelos. I think the back four is now starting to be the fast formation of Tavernier, McAuley Goldson, Barasic. I would the go for a midfield of Candeias, Jack\McCrorie, Arfield and Grezda with Lafferty and Morelos up front. That would make the team: Mcgregor Tavernier McAuley Goldson Barasic Jack Candeias Arfield Grezda Morelos Lafferty One thing we need to watch is the Hibs striker Florian Kamberi as he has really impressed me when I have seen him. He also scored a cracker of a goal against Celtic on Sunday. I have also chosen Jack over McCrorie as I think Jack is a little bit more flexible in managing to break forward. C'mon the Gers!

    [FT] Rangers 1 - 0 Hamilton (Candeias 3')

    The first tackle on Jack should have been yellow making the second pull around a yellow and red.
  5. Hardie had a good game yesterday for Livi. 2 goals and an assist I think.

    Pacific Quay Musings?

    It is now a case of nobody wanting to lose face and try to repair the damage.

    Ball boy

    Did Graham Souness not remove all the ball boys during one game to waste time?

    Pacific Quay Musings?

    Of course the whole of Scotland were glued to their radio's for the Newcastle Facons v Edinburgh. I guess that is rugby but it is a guess.

    Pacific Quay Musings?

    Crowd 1727? Also Thommo stated that Lafferty led the line well for Sellick. The amount of times that the Champions was said was overkill to say the least. Also that sellick had beaten Kilmarnock 5-1 was repeated numerous times. Childish really.
  10. Scores with his head so that is one box ticked.

    MSPs and the Celtic Cover Up

    I can imagine they want any contact via an email as they then have a recorded complaint. Getting involved in conversations that could end in a "He said She said" discussion. If I was making a complaint I would want to do it via an email so as can show exactly what has been said..

    [FT] Rapid Vienna 1 - 0 Rangers

    The referee gave the keeper a yellow card followed by a red for a second yellow. then he was made attent that the keeper didn't have a yellow so retracted the red. Livi scored the penalty and almost directly after the kick-off a Hearts player was really sent off.
