Thought might have been some trialists playing 

There’s one on the bench apparently. No idea who. Pars 1-0 up, Taylor Sutherland. Very very strong Livi team, so will be a good test for the younger guys out there.

Livi starting 11 is Jack Hamilton, Philip Cancar, Jackson Longridge, Morgan Boyes, Jack Fitzwater, Jamie Brandon, James Penrice, Andrew Shinnie, Bruce Anderson, Stephen Kelly and Esma Goncalves.

Hope Mcpake chins Martindale to try get a loan in.

Yep, if any of those guys that started for Livi are available on loan, any of them would improve our squad. They would, at the very least, add more than adequate cover/competition.

Is it two or three more domestic loans we're allowed? Surely there'll be a few Premiership players getting told their doomed to the reserves and fancy steam-rolling League 1 with Fife's Massive?

Only one likely out of that whole team is Longridge, or the really young boys like Che Reilly, Kieran Wilson or Lucas Stenhouse. 

Hamilton, 2nd choice keepr
Cancar, rotation CB
Boyes, just back from long term injury and getting fitness
Fitzwater, our best starting CB
Brandon, 2nd choice RB
Penrice, 1st/2nd choice LB
Shinnie, rotation CM
Anderson, just back from injury, getting fitness, 2nd top goalscorer in the Premiership last season
Stephen Kelly, just signed, rotation CM
Goncalves, not long signed and getting fitness up

Konovalov is 3rd choice keeper and Bitsindou is a weird one. He's been capped for Congo and played most of our league cup games at CB despite being a CDM. Hasn't been in the team much at all - possibly the only other option?

I would be very surprised if McPake thought we needed a wee kid on loan. We've got enough of our own.

Aye, not a signing that would make sense and one that isn't exactly in his remit given he was seemingly hired on the strength of giving younger players a chance.

Talking of which, ours must be pretty stinking given McPake was fine with giving some youth players a shot at Dundee.

Todd has played a lot, Allan was getting games before his injury, McCann is a regular... and the under 19s play Friday nights which isn't ideal but Tod got game time in the League Cup, didn't he?

Allan, Todd and McCann aren't really youth players any longer. Younger, aye, but all over 20, and Allan will be 23 in a few months.

McPake was giving lads at 17 and 18 a shot in the Championship, but out youth players are barely getting a sub apperance. Not expected them to be starting, but to barely even be getting 5 or so minutes seems telling.
