***The Official Champions vs. Hearts Thread***

Recommended Posts

Going to be a tough game. Hearts have signed some good players who will do a good job for them. John Sutton and Kevin Kyle will be a handful up front.

Hopefully we don't have McCulloch and Edu as the CM partnership!

I think Kevin Kyle's injured mate (tu)

I think we actually have plenty of decent permutations but I hope we look at a couple of things:

Hearts will probably go 4-5-1. Hammill is suspended, so.....

No Broadfoot at RB please. Templeton will be out there so I'd prefer Whittaker up against him.

They will probably go direct to Sutton a bit so I'd quite like McCulloch in beside Boogy for the aerial stuff. he'll also be better at stepping out into midfield to match their 5 when we have the ball.

Wylde on the wing please. With Hammill suspended, they will have Jonsson or Barr at RB and some pace out there would cause them some grief.

Whittaker got tore to pieces in the game after the split last season against Templeton. Not sure if I'd be confident with that. Although we dont have many options.

:whittaker: :bougherra: :broadfoot: :papac:

:ortiz: :davis: :mcculloch: :wylde:

:Naismith: :jelavic:

Subs: Alexander, Edu, Wallace, Healy, Hutton, Fleck and Ness.

Although Wallace is better than Broaders imo, I think he should start on the bench, he isn't match fit...some time in the second half would be fine. I think Hemmings should be included but dunno who to leave out, Healy? He has the experience.

One of the centre mids will be captain, hopefully the lads are up for this...they seemed to be against Pool. Can't wait to see the display, hope Sky get a good view of it (tu)

I posted a team earlier, but in light of our new signing, I'd go with this:

:mcgregor:

:whittaker::bougherra::mcculloch::papac:

:ortiz::davis::hutton::Wallace:

:Naismith:

:jelavic:

Not ideal having McCulloch at CB, but I feel he'd cope better with the physical battle with Sutton, than say Broadfoot or Papac would.

---------------Shagger--------------

Whittaker Bougie Papac Wallace

Ortiz Davis Mcculloch Wylde

---------Naismith Jelavic---------

Is Ness injured? I would rather not start big lee, but he will. Need a good cm in and cb to partner the bougster, then I'd be happy with our first XI.

I just pray that Ally McCoist does not go with Edu and McCulloch in the middle together. It has to be Davis and one other.

Rangers (from): McGregor, Whittaker, Papac, Bougherra, Wylde, McCulloch, Davis, Edu, Naismith, Healy, Jelavic, Hutton, Fleck, Alexander, Broadfoot, Ortiz, Wallace, Ness.

You have Edu, Hutton, Ness and Fleck all on the bench.

Do we really need 4 CM options?

Fleck's not a CM though, striker/LM

still I'd only have one CM on the bench.

I think it will be a tough game tomorrow, Hearts have improved since last season with signings like Sutton. Could be a close one and one I'm wary of.

3-1 I think but a close game.

Jelavic x2

Naismith

Suppose, maybe Hemmings and McCabe could feature (tu)
