    The Top 6 split

    Now that it looks like we’ll be in it,had a look at the fixtures...

    We should have Celtic and Rangers at ER but it turns out Rangers will have already played Hibs,Celtic,Sheep,Hearts and Motherwell/Killie twice at home. Someone is visting a 3rd time....

    three Hibs league wins at Ibrox in a season?

    safe to say Celtic will not have to go there for a 3rd time

    Didnt realise SPFL rigged the fixtures so the Hun played all their main rivals twice at home before the split. How convenient was that.

    Anomalies and unfairness of split happens every season. Magnified when a team makes the top six they didn't predict when pulling together fixtures

    All very well, but I hardly think that it was beyond the bounds of reasonable expectations to think that Celtc, Aberdeen, Hibs, and Hertz would make the top six, no? Why haven’t they been scheduled to play away twice at two of them?

    I think it's the norm when they're doing the fixtures to have the promoted team in the bottom 6. I think this has caused problems in the past when the promoted team has done well.

    Might as well send the Sheep there again, anyway. They grab their ankles for the Huns home or away regardless.

    Presumably rangers will have a 17/16 split? Probably means two teams visiting there for a 3rd time?
