Guest Posted May 12, 2012 Share Posted May 12, 2012 (edited) Five at the back you are shitting it. Think I'll use this gif for the first time. It's not a flat back five is it, i'll be as much a 3-5-2 when we're on the ball. Hardly me shitting it. I suppose Celtic were bricking it when they used this formation during their recent 3-0 trouncing of Rangers? Every derby this season, Hearts have thumped us in the midfield. I would probably do a four-four-two system, including both Soares and Claros in the mid, then take out Kujabi from the defence and leave him as a sub. Part of the reason is that they have an extra man there, when their midflield is better anyway it doesn't help being outnumbered. We can't match up with a 4-5-1/4-3-3 because we have hee haw good wingers, Sproule shouldn't play and Griffiths on the wing is a total waste. I'd play Kujabi, he does offer something (not freekicks it seems) and I wouldn't want to try someone like Francomb out of position for the first time in a derby. With my system he could get forward without putting the fear of god into us every time. Which one is the poodle. Is it the dwarf who wears the short sleeve top and gloves ? I don't even know what you're talking about. Sure it's hilarious/intelligent/cutting (delete as appropriate) though. EGB, that's not too bad a shout. Osbourne/Soares and Stevenson cut in so much and play so centrally anyway, it might make sense to actually play them there. I would certainly feel more comfortable watching the game if Kujabi had Hanlon close by to cover up. Exactly. Hibs playing a 4-4-2 this season somehow manages to combine no width with a lack of authority in the middle at the same time. Our whole season has been a game of long bangers between the defence and the strikers, at least with my formation we might have a chance to win some more second balls and allow our two biggest threats from out wide a chance to go forward without leaving massive gaps.
