Still say you won't get the best out of Storey playing the Mackie role until you sort out your AM to feed him. Or do you play Jack and Shinnie further up and play a DM behind them. Storie or O'Connor both possibilities if that's the case. One eye on the Tarts game too. They looked pretty hefty in the middle.

No goalkeeping or centre back changes. We need to start building an understanding there and get some sort of stability back.

Just can't stand the thought of a shock exit in this, not with McCall in the home dugout. Doesn't bear thinking about.

McInnes may start Alexander to give him his competitive first team debut. I'm comfortable with either 'keeper starting.

Can't see much football being played here, probably going to be a brutal shit fest, so I'd start all our physical guys and bully them.

My scouting mission to Ayr yesterday......

 

The whole town was a Hun infested shithole.

 

I could have told you that and saved you the effort of a scouting mission.

 

Every Ayrshire town is chock full of huns without bus fares.

What's this full strength team pish? It's fucking Ayr we're playing. 

 

We spent the off season saying we needed to strengthen the depth of the squad so we could rotate players more, so we do that, and now a good opportunity to rotate a few players arises and now nobody wants to? 

 

Alexander

 

Logan Taylor McKenna Considine

 

Burns McLean Storie Wright

 

Rooney Storey

 

If that team can't see off Ayr then we've got a problem.

 

Knowing McInnes though, I reckon we will see a full strength squad out, and we'll be knackered for Hearts at the weekend

McInnes has intimated that it'll be as strong a team as possible.

One or two changes I reckon, no more, no less.

They are professional athletes and should be able to handle two games in a week. Fielding the strongest XI gives us the best chance of winning the cup.

Absolutely mental if Jack and Shinnie don't get a rest (and Logan / Considine shouldn't play the whole game if it can be avoided). If they played Tuesday and Saturday that would be 4 games in 10 days across two time zones including 40 mins chasing a goal with 10 men in 30 degree heat. Recipe for a buggered hamstring.

The 'they can manage, they are professional footballers' argument is stupid.

We have a decent squad now, this is the sort of game to use it in.

Fortunately Hearts have a nice wee trip to Perth on Wednesday night, hopefully they'll be knackered/injured or missing through suspension !!!

the same decent squad struggled to create any chances against St Johnstone on Saturday when we rested two first team players and had one injured. I though it was insane to have McGinn and Rooney on the bench and leave us with out our starting front 3.

 

Play the staring 11 against Ayr and Hearts unless we have injuries.

we wanted strength in depth to cover injuries with better talented players, not to rotate and leave the best players on the bench.

Partly thinking about preparation for the hearts game and if we'd need the physical boys for this game as well. Considered putting oconner in midfield but thought that would be too much fucking about.

 

Would rest mcginn and surely he needs a proper holiday, hasn't looked great so far.

 

Midfield might be too attacking but fuck it ayr are shite.
