Before the season started I felt winning 30 league games would've been enough to win the league, comparing it to previous seasons.
I still think realistically that should be our aim.
After the first half of the season our rivals have had, it still might not be good enough.
It means we can only drop points in 2 more matches out with the Derby games.
That would give us 30 wins 6 draws and only 2 defeats.
I might be enough to clinch the title.
But first we need a good CB in ASAP.

I still think it can be done. We have a favorable run of matches now that should build momentum. Let's see how that lot handle the pressure.

Pressure del 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 19 points ahead with vastly superior goal defence but theyr the ones under pressure! And buzz u know I like your posts and your stats are good buddy, but your clutching at straws big time today I’m afraid! The league has gone buddy it’s as simple as that! That’s not defeatist or I’m less of a Tim than anyone else or support the team no matter what, it’s called realism! They are undeafted in 22 matches with a barrel load more goals than us. say we had to win our 3 games in hand, which is nowhere near a certainty! They still have to lose 4 games out of the 16 they’ve got remaining while we hope to win all ours! Ain’t happening, and if currant bun had to say they’ve still a chance if the roles were reversed, every single one of us would be calling them deluded!

They look tired Del.
I want the football to continue without any breaks.
I can see the season getting played out now because it would’ve got announced today if they were thinking of a football lockdown.

04 Jan 2021 15:25:26
theres more chance that mob going unbeaten this season.

Danny
I gave them no chance after we dropped points against St. Johnstone because we looked like a team which would continue to drop more points.
I like this new setup, which we were all calling for months ago.
I do think with Celtic playing the diamond, we can win at least 17 of our last 19 league games.
Will it be enough, time will tell.

04 Jan 2021 15:54:44
I know buzz I remember u saying that the way we were playing we had no chance, and none of us really disagreed. and yes while we have been playing better the same old frailties are there mate. jullien is out now and bitton who isn’t a centre half in my opinion will be suspended, meaning Duffy who’s been nothing short of a disaster comes in! Do I have faith in that defence winning us 17 of our last 19 while hoping they also drop points? Absolutely no chance! But I do respect your opinion and u talk a lot of sense, just can’t agree with your optimism lol!

Unfortunately I think the SPL is as weak as I have seen it and they often get results without much effort and some favourable decisions.

04 Jan 2021 16:06:17
How good would it be Danny if it did happen. 😂.

04 Jan 2021 17:05:22
Buzz it would probably be the best of the lot! And more than a few including myself would be eating some humble pie! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 and I would gladly eat a ton of it if we could manage it! Hope you are right and I look foolish come may time buddy 😜.

Our next 10 games through January and February:

Hibs (H)
Livingston (H)
Livingston (A)
Hamilton (H)
Kilmarnock (A)
Motherwell (H)
St Mirren (A)
St Johnstone (A)
Aberdeen (H)
Aberdeen (H)

With the new formation and 2 upfront I think we can win these 10 games.

Their run of games through January and February:

Aberdeen (A)
Motherwell (A)
Ross County (H)
Hibs (A)
St Johnstone (H)
Hamilton (A)
Kilmarnock (H)
Antwerp (A)
Antwerp (H)
Livingston (A)

The pressure is on them as its theirs to lose now. They have never been in this position before and most of their squad have no history of winning silverware. I thought the Rangers players showed a bit of fear in the game on Saturday up until the red card. They definitely have the more difficult fixtures over the next 8 weeks. One slip up from them and I can see them crumbling.

Since the St Johnstone game our form has been good and performances individually and as a team have vastly improved. I expect that to continue, I wouldn't have said that in October or November.

I am hoping we can bring in an experienced centre half in this window who can go straight in to the team. Although Lennon stated otherwise I would also be surprised if we are not making moves for another goalkeeper.

If we already had won our games in hand and the point difference was 10 with two derbies left I'm not sure so many fans would be as defeatist as they are. I get that's its a monumental task but its certainly not impossible. Keep the formation as it is with Soro and Turnbull in the middle of the park with 2 up front and I think there's still a chance of pulling it off.

Del Bhoy 👍.

If we beat them twice then we can win league if they draw two more games. That's 10 points. let's hope they beat antwerp coz that means they'll have 4 Thursday night games.

It's never over till Grotbags sings🎶.

Just don’t get the optimism? We played our best performance of the season on Saturday and still lost. Let’s be honest McGregor only made 1 good save a couple of long range efforts and a powderpuff effort blocked by his legs was all we could muster when we were right up for it and full of confidence when they had 2/ 3 main midfielders missing.
We have lost the last 3 Derby’s in a row and should of been 4.
We can’t beat Livvy away or Hibs away in league or we haven’t in past 2-3 seasons, we can’t defend set pieces, our main striker wants out, half the fans want manager sacked and majority want a new board.
They have dropped 4 points all season .
If we had level points and games played I still wouldn’t fancy us that’s not because I’m a closer Sevconian or less of a supporter than the rest they points are all facts.
We will NEVER win 17/ 19 games while hoping they lose about 5.
I predict they will drop about 10 more points so if we win every game it would go to goal difference but we will drop at least 10 more points too.
