Team v St Johnstone

So we are in the Premiership and facing St Johnstone on Saturday at Tannadice. Giving we've got a new manager what do you reckon the team selection and formation will be?

I'll go with this:

Siegrist

Smith Reynolds Connolly Robson

Powers Butcher Pawlett

Smith Shankland Appere

I'd just like to say my heart felt thanks go to Hearts FC. Paying money for Robbie Neilson was a grand bit of business.

Could an administrator of JA606 please switch Hearts with Dundee United. They have swapped places in the Premiership and Scottish League after arbitration was concluded.

Of course you know Pawlett, he's the Aberdeen "wonderkid" who ended up so poor he's spent the last two seasons slumming it in the Scottish Championship.

Wait...

Cant say I ever thought of him as a wonderkid lol

Anyway, I'd go for:

Siegrist

Bolton Reynolds Connolly Robson

McMullan Butcher Harkes Appéré

Shankland Clark

Bench: Mehmet, L. Smith, Sporle, Powers, Glass, Pawlett, C. Smith

No chance I'd be starting Pawlett. Guy was absolutely finished at Championship level - needs to do a Fyvie and drop down a couple of leagues.

Bit worried about the spine of the team too. Only Butcher inspires confidence there - Harkes can be hit-and-miss and the two centre-backs were often frightening even in the Championship. Think their mistakes will be punished a lot more this season.
Our bench also looks extremely thin. A couple of players there I'd have out the club rather than on the bench. Hopefully there's a few promising youngsters.

I was listening to the Dode Fox Podcast and I was interested to hear that he played Butcher at CB (think Reynolds is struggling?) and at one point lined up with three at the back.

Given the winger we signed from Man City was playing at full back for Luton(?) last year then it might well be that he's thinking about that formation for the season ahead.

It would obviously see Harkes and Powers in the middle of the park with either Pawlett or McMullan in behind a front two of Shankland and Appere (unless Clark is fit enough to play).

I still expect us to bring in two or three more to bolster the squad.

I could literally name about three players from most Premiership teams these days.
