Ross County 0 - 3 Aberdeen

Recommended Posts

If we can pick up wins in our next two matches, which we should be doing, it will have been a decent start to the domestic season.

Lewis

Logan

Taylor

Considine

Hayes

Ferguson

McCrorie

Wright

McGinn

Hedges

Edmondson

It's the DM way........win a lot of the "easier" matches then get everyone upbeat about the bigger matches, just for us to flop. Ah well, at least it isn't boring......no wait

We usually change it up a bit after a European trip.

Hoban will be rested so maybe a back 4?

                     Lewis

Logan Taylor Considine Hayes

             McCrorie Ferguson 

     Hedges Wright Watkins

                  Edmondson 

Thats a horrendous back 4, and we’ll almost certainly concede.

1-1 or we’ll scrape out a 2-1 win

Edmondson to get off the mark

Edmondson deserves a start but I'd prefer it was part of a 2 if possible.

I think Logan needs a rest and presuming Hoban takes a rest too....

Why have we got a hundred injuries again?

Got to win this convincingly. Play Hoban and use a back 3. Edmondson on from start to grab a few early goals.

Midfield and attack looks very decent though. Would like to see that, cause Hedges Wright and Watkins link up very well - but without ever looking like scoring. 3-0 Aberdeen with an Edmundo hat trick is the call

McInnes has said that Hoban isn’t at the stage where he can play two games in three days.

A defence without both Hoban & McKenna looks shite, but that’s how it is at the moment.

We ideally need a good McKenna replacement but with another 6 months of no income from crowds, maybe unlikely.

I hope we start with a winning team, score a few in 1st half then sub off some that need the rest. The league is our bread and butter so need to get the winning mentality back.

1 - 3 Aberdeen.

Hibs at Easter Road easy, is it?

St Johnstone win, one of the easier ties too?

That's the team I'd pick as well if Hoban can't play.  

If Hoban starts then I think he'll try that 532 from last night again. 

Can't see us playing the 343 until Kennedy is back.  Hayes and Kennedy are crucial to that system.

How longs Kennedy out for?  Cosgrove as well for that matter

After the next international break apparently for Kennedy (& possibly Cosgrove), so the Dundee Utd game on Oct 17th.

Game is on grass, don't expect Hoban to be dropped unless he is carrying a niggle from last night. 

Would like to see Edmondson get a start, ideally in tandem with Watkins but that's probably too cavalier an approach for McInnes so more likely that Watkins would drop to the bench. Wright deserves his starting place back. Logan wasn't great last night but if anyone is going to drop out I'd say he was favourite. 

Can see a draw being the outcome.

I think Watkins has done well for us, however like many have posted on here so far, I think its time to put someone in who may be a more natural finisher.

As good as Hoban is, we do need to manage his game time and ensure he does not relapse, which would be worse for us in the long term.

Also, whilst 3-4-2-1 has been good for us, defensively we are stretched, meaning we may likely need to play an alternative formation. the 4-2-3-1 therefore seems favourable, otherwise  it means McCrorie to go into the back three with Taylor and Considine.

If I were to guess what DM will do, McCrorie will be in defence, so on that basis, here's how I would line up the team for Sunday

 

........................Lewis

.......McCrorie Taylor Considine

McLennan Ferguson McGeouch Hayes

.........Wright........... Hedges

..................Edmunson

So no Taylor or McCrorie in defence.

What would you do if Hoban got injured again playing too many games in short succession as he build up his knees resilience?

Hoban starts in defence and McRorie in midfield, Edmondson starting and getting a few goals in first half then Hoban can come off with no injury worries. McInnes will set us up not to lose if he starts the likes of taylor. Thats where our problems start..... My thoughts anyway.

Agree.  We then invite pressure on the very players we're trying to rest.

Caveat:  Not sure what my forward line would be between Wright, Hedges, Mclennan, Edmondson and Watkins to get us those goals right enough.

So what did you mean by wins the "easier" matches but not the bigger ones 

If you were meaning he wins the NOT easy ones, then how are they different to the bigger ones?

Do you mean then that he wins the medium ones?

Who is that, who is medium?

How are you right? The only nonsense written was the pish you wrote. It's quite easy and funnily no one else had an issue understanding it. We will generally win the games that are regarded as the easier ones and struggle in the bigger games.

 

If you need any more help.......don't ask me
