4-4-2 have a go at them...

Exactly - I'm sick to the back teeth of hearing about how you have to play with one up front these days. "You'll get ran over in midfield with two up front" so and so forth.

We had every man back inside our own box at every Lithuania corner / free kick on Saturday and its high time we started concerning ourselves about how positive we can be in a match.

But it won't happen.....

Marshall - GK

Patterson - RB

Martin - CH

Berra - CH

Robertson - LB

McArthur - CM

Morrison - CM

Snodgrass - RM

Burke - AM

Forrest - RM

Griffiths - CF

Hanley dropped for Berra.

Bannan is a "luxury" player. Need 2 people in middle who are experienced and proven instead of cheeky passes and moves which failed on Saturday.

Forrest in as he knows how Griifiths plays.

Griffiths in as he scored over 30 goals last season.

Forrest????  'Cos he know how Griffiths plays?  Forrest doesn't know how Forrest plays.  He's absolutely terrible. I can only assume you are alooking for a reaction Alan - well done, you got one.

Martin, Ritchie, Forrest can GTF, D. Fletcher appears to be injured.

I'd go with:

Plan A;

-------------------- Marshall

Paterson ----- Hanley ---- Martin  ------ Tierney

----------- McArthur  --------- Morrison

Anya   ---------------------------------- Robertson

---------- Snodgrass

------------------------- Griffiths

Plan B:

Burke to come on for Anya with S. Fletcher replacing Robertson and Snoddy going wide, going 4-1-3-2 and more attacking.

-------------------- Marshall

Paterson ----- Hanley ---- Martin  ------ Tierney

-------------------- McArthur 

Burke   ------------ Morrison ---------- Snodgrass

---------- S. Fletcher -------- Griffiths

Swap Griffiths for Steven Fletcher and I think that'll be the team that starts.

Guys like Anya and Naismith are just better suited to playing away from home.
Both will offer a good out-ball and are pacey on the break.
McArthur will be given the man-marking job on Hamsik.

I think we probably will play:


Marshall
Paterson - Martin - Berra - Robertson
 McArthur- Bannan
Snodgrass - Burke - Anya
Fletcher

I sort of wish we would play:

Marshall
Martin - Berra - Tierney
Paterson - - McArthur - - Roberston
 Maloney - Burke - Snodgrass
 Fletcher


But to be honest i dont think it matters particularly. Whichever side we put out, we can win the game.. the question is whether we're going to play with the required workrate and effort needed to win. If the lackadaisical, low-tempo scotland who have too often turned up under the last.. who knows how many managers, then we're stuffed regardless of personnel or formation. i'm not a believer in chris martin, but even if we put out the same team to a man as played lithuania, we could win, if we actually put in the work to play high tempo, press, move off the ball and make sure of our passes.

Bannan isn't a luxury he's just utter sh!te.

Tighten up midfield to stifle their creative players and inject some pace up the park with Anya and Griffiths. Drop Hanley after two weak performances and employ Burke as impact sub if required. 

----------------Marshall

Patterson Martin Berra Robertson
-----------Fletcher McArthur
----------Snodgrass Bannan Anya
---------------------Griffiths

Marshall

Paterson, Martin, Berra, Tierney

McArthur Bannan

Burke, Snodgrss, Robertson

Griffiths

 

Let Robertson play in front of Tierney, he is our best attacking wide player. Griffiths to actually move up front and snograss and burke to make runs in support. If we play martin up on his own Skrtel will murder him.
