Starting 11 for Kazakhstan match

Recommended Posts

Think this would be my line-up at this point.

Bain
Palmer - Bates - McKenna - Robertson
McTominay - McGregor
Forrest - Armstrong - Tierney
Burke

Trying Tierney ahead of Robertson. He's used to being a very attacking fulback, so shouldn't be a massive leap, and we don't have a natrual left winger in the squad aside from Fraser. Morgan can do it, Russell can do it. McGregor can do it. Even Bannan's played out there a bit in recent years. So we can change it if it's not working down that side.

The rest of the team kinda picks itself for me right now.

Derek Rae was chatting about how much better 3. liga compared to Budasliga 2 this season a week or two ago, with the teams you mention, plus Cottbus (who would yo-yo between Budalisga and Budasliga 1 until fairly recently) and Hansa Rostock.

Derek Rae is talking mince. About the only interest in the 3. Liga is whether Braunschweig go down to the Regionalliga Nord.

3. Liga is shown only on a subscribe Telekom TV channel.

I'd probably start Russell out left. Don't know much about palmer and for that reason, I have tierney or O'Donnell ahead of him at right back,

Other than that - looks good. And certainly good enough to beat Kazakhstan.

I would be happy with that selection. Allows us to fit both Tierney and Robertson in the side.

Tierney and Robertson are smart enough to interchange down the left. Ideally we’ll see a fair bit of the ball to make it work in an attaching sense. Can’t see McLeish going for it’s though.

My prediction:

------------------------- Bain

Tierney - Bates - McKenna - Robertson

--------------- McTominay --- McGregor

Forrest  ----------- Armstrong --------- Russell

---------------------------- Burke

 

Might  even interchange Russell with Burke too.

That's the team I would go with. If we win with a decent performance, I would play the same team against San Marino, barring injuries.

McGinn will definitely be starting in Astana. All those coming up with possible starting lineups, take heed.

 

Yep. McGinn alongside McTominay. Forrest, McGregor and Armstrong just behind Burke. Very happy with that.

Since the Plastic Menace has struck I've replaced Fraser with McGinn, and since McBurnie is under the weather I'll choose Burke.

You've got to include McGregor.

If McKenna is out would tierney be an option at centre back with Bates? 

I think Tierney is s distinct possibility. Off the top of my head the, only other option is Mulgrew.

I’m furious about the Fletcher situation. It does not bode well for the campaign.

To be fair, it's a coin toss between him and Armstrong.

I really hope that coin lands in McGregor's favour! We need players who have been playing recently.

If we had better options then I'd pick neither of them as I'm not particularly enamoured with either of them.

We have to win this one, as Kazakhstan could easily nick a point off Russia, them being local rivals and that. If we have 3 in the bag when Russia go there it puts pressure on them.

McGregor is excellent & Armstrong is pretty good. 

Way WAY ahead of the likes of Kevin McDonald & Graeme Shinnie anyway.

Yes, McGregor is excellent against free transfers.
