One of the frequent criticism aimed at the Admirable Warburton has been a reliance on his preferred 4-3-3 system.
It is an expansive game utilising two attacking fullbacks and going forward his team can be pleasing on the eye.
However, the back door can be left unattended, and against superior opponents, this is courting danger.
This was evident in the 5-1 thrashing from Celtic in September.
Therefore the 4-5-1 formation at Hampden caused a few dignified eyebrows to be raised in Churchillian surprise.
I am led to believe that the Admirable Warburton might not have been the author of his tactical volte-face.
Moreover, I was told that if the ex-City trader leaves Sevco then his trusted lieutenant, Mr David Weir, might not accompany him out of the door.
No doubt the award-winning stenographers will be working hard to bring you all of these updates.
For the avoidance of doubt, the parlous financial situation at Sevco remains extant.
The Holding Company Vehicle is a loss making business without a credit line from a bank.
Consequently, they are finding it difficult to keep the lights on at the Engine Room Subsidiary.
Several members of the Sevco High Command are still foraging for external finance.
Their deadline for success on this matter is mid-November.
However, do not fret dear reader; I’m sure they’ll come through and secure the regime until the January window opens.
Then the overinvesting will begin…
I’m sure that will come as a great comfort to the Admirable Warburton.
