Joel Sked and James Cairney are back for the Wednesday briefing as the pair turn their attention towards the January transfer window.

There's also some discussion about the team's shape as Joel and James discuss and debate the various strengths and weaknesses of the 3-5-2 and the 4-2-3-1 formations, as well as a quick talk about the future of Mackenzie Kirk of Hearts B.
