    "Average player position"

    can see the sey up, but also the issues it causes.
    Big call for the manager whether he sticks with it try and get the players more comfortable, or if he makes it a back up formation.

    Considering everything that happened, have to be happy with a point.
    Hard to truly judge the new set up when its so early in the season, you give away an early penalty, and O'Halloran has an absolute shocker then gets sent off early.
    Worrying that Davidson couldn't recognise the set up wasn't working, or that O'Halloran was clearly getting sent off. Might be more worrying if he did notice but just didn't change it though.
    Neither lone striker had much to work with, but again, O'Halloran a major factor in that.
    See how much Davidson has learned in the next game.

    Yeah I noticed that, and they've not seemed to mention it on Twitter yet.
    Hopefully its just some way of trying to prevent UK users abusing the system and you will get to view the game.

    Someone might correct but as far as i know PPV is only available to UK users.
    Saints should be showing it through their own channel to International subscribers.

    Although I notice there's never been any mention of it from Saints yet.

    Actually, @Johnny B it seems they have confirmed how you can watch it in the match preview 

    If you have an International subscription then just log in to Saints TV and you'll be able to watch it.

    Aye.
    You aim to overload a flank then deliver a cross in for the striker to attack. One CM sits deep, and one gets involved in the attack.
    Youd have one of McCart and Kerr pushing up, dependent on where the ball is, with the other staying back with Gordon and Craig.
    Hendry would stay static in the box awaiting a cross, with May given a bit more freedom to move but generally expected to be in the box for any loose balls after the cross.
    In theory, and its all just my take on what Millwall have done, your attacking "formation" when on the ball would look like this...

    Gordon and Craig designated as "defensive" players. Craigs role is to take the ball off Gordon and move it, or deliver balls from deep.
    McCann gets a box to box role.
    Kerr and McCart are expected to help out the wide players.
    One of Rooney or MOH is expected to cut in from a flank, with the other to get down the outside, Kerr will be allowed to join them if the situation allows it. On the left Tanser will be told to get down the wing, May to stay central in the box, and one of McCart or McCann will be expected to support Tanser. 
    As I say, that's just what I've seen from Sheffield United and Millwall in highlights, and the players there are the ones who fit the roles they use best. Could be different and I've just wasted everyone's time.

    Yeah I'm really interested to see exactly how it all works out. 
    New manager, new system, new season. Combine that with the lack of games for 6 months and there's a real freshness about the club this season.
    Quite enjoying not having a clue how it'll go.

    Millwall played a "3-4-3" system a lot when Davidson was there. 
    If he copies that, then youre looking at...
    Clark
    Kerr - Gordon - McCart
    Rooney - McCann - Craig - Tanser 
    MOH - Hendry - May
    Being our version, if Muzz is missing out and the loanees aren't straight in.

    Its an SFA charge so they can't give them a points deduction, as, technically, the league is a SPFL competition. 
    All they can do is fine them, remove them from the Scottish Cup, or revoke their membership (which would remove them from the league system).

    That will be the only, legal, way to watch the match.

    The alternative is to shaft those who bought season tickets. 
    Based on an Adult in the East Stand, and 19 home games, price per game is £17.10 for a season ticket holders, and £17.50 for PPV viewers.

    Stephen Hendrie is a left back who's not good enough to play in this league and is injured half the time.
    Alan Lithgow hasn't played for 6/7 months due to injury and is at an age where it's unlikely he'll get fit enough for the top flight again.
    Peter Hartley is being released by Motherwell as he is no longer able to play at this level, he's too slow on the turn and again has had injury problems. 
    Marcus Fraser would be decent back up, but he's just been let go as club captain of a top flight team and there's no way he wouldn't want to be a starter on a first team wage, which we are not looking for.
    Slivka is decent, but he was on a big wage at Hibs by virtue of being a full internationalist, plus joining from Juventus. He doesn't add anything to a team though and on the wage he'd want, he'd be a Lithuanian Gary MacDonald.
    I personally wouldn't want any of these players, we'll be looking at guys from the Championship, etc. now that it's finished. Hopefully Davidson has kept an eye on the under 21 league at that level, or guys who were out on loan. With the new wage caps coming into place, we might be in a position to compete now.

    If you can't buy it yet, and most Scottish clubs are just selling tops as pre-orders just now, and the team aren't needing them for another 10 days, why the desperation to see them?
    Its all a bit odd to me.

    Nope.
    You have to "register" your kits with the authorities months before the season starts, by emailing them a photo/sketch. 
    You can only wear "registered" kits in league games.
    Presumably last seasons kits will forever be registered so as long as we update the font/numbers to the new style then they'd be fine. Only issue would be sponsors, but if we've kept the same sponsorship deals, then there's no issues.

    There seems to be some skulduggery afoot with some friendlies.
    Aberdeen had agreed to play at home to Dundee United last week, but United ended up cancelling so they could play Livingston at home instead. Hibs cancelled a friendly away to County yesterday, and I'm sure Kilmarnock pulled out of one two weeks ago against someone aswell.
    Just be a case of waiting and seeing what actually happens I think.
