Bounced Out!
A robust start to this season and I think 2nd place is entirely possible.

BIG G
I think 2nd is a big ask. I can imagine the ugly sisters fighting it out for the title and us, sheep and the gunts having a shoot out for 3rd, 4th and 5th

Aim for the sky and you might hit the ceiling, aim for the ceiling and you might not get of the ground. 1st for me

Three games in, unbeaten with 5 points isn’t the worst start, especially considering we had to balance European games for the first two league matches.

That said, not much has changed: we’ve got Motherwell’s number, we still can’t beat St. Johnstone, and we still struggle to break down Aberdeen’s cynical style of play.

2 points up again on last season, and a great chance to put another couple of points up at Dundee.

We have made a good start to the season..not great, and there is definitely room for improvement, but considering the tough Euro schedule which has definitely taken it's toll on the squad we have done quite well.
I do hate it when we are next to play a team who are on a bad losing streak especially on their own patch. We are going to have to adopt a very professional attitude next Saturday to get the job done. No excuses.

Updated the list to take us to the end of the first quarter - 12 points last year. This year we're already just 1 point behind with 5 games still to play.

Gunts excellent start has probably helped keep the limelight off everyone else. Not a bad thing and allowed us to go quietly about our business. Also 12 goals scored, 2 clean sheets...we most certainly have a plan.

Gunts start is interesting....6 games 5 wins 11 goals for 2 against but strip out the Hamilton and St Mirren thumpings and you have 4 games which produced 3 goals in total.

So far it's been 3 1-0 wins and a 0-0 draw - 4 clean sheets - but it suggests that they haven't fundamentally changed from their 7 clean sheets in a row from last season which included 3 or 4 0-0 draws. It's a big ask to string a run together on that kind of format, and the next few games will be interesting to see what they do against Aberdeen, Huns and ourselves who may quite happily allow them ball and hit them on the break.

Actually if I'm honest it doesn't sound interesting to me - it sounds mind numbing.

Do you think the gunts draw with Livi was down to them not having a hulking big striker to hoof the ball at? I suspect the answer is yes and if that is the case teams will realise this and target Ikpeazu [sp] he doesn't seem to have much calmness about him and he like a foul. Its what we will need to do when we play them.

Would also like to see that wee c**t Naismith smashed properly, too.

I think it’s pretty steady progression, overall, particularly given that we’re still not at full strength.

We’re two points better off than last year, scored once more and lost four less. We’re averaging two points per game which, if the season continues that way, will see us conclude the season with a haul of 76 points; a full nine better than last year, and a total that hasn’t been beaten in all the years since the original Huns were liquidated and replaced with a new club (Aberdeen clicked it once, but it hasn’t been bettered).

There’s no other way to view this than steady development, given midfield maestros we lost, and something that is extremely likely to net us second at least. If we get to full strength and average more than two points per game… Who knows?

The four upcoming games last season we took 2 points. We could definitely improve on the Hamilton result, and anything we take from the other three games hurts them.

Seriously think with the signings we've made especially Milligin and Mallin, we can challenge top 3 or better , no problem

We wont know too much until we play the other 3 contenders for the top 4 slots.

Win at Parkhead and Tynecastle this month and nothing is beyond us.

I'm not confident of taking anything from either ground.

Bizarrely last season we had two defeats at home to Hamilton and Huns, and two draws at Parkhead and Tynecastle.

I don't think we'll take points from all the games, but, I'd also be surprised if we didn't take any from any of them. Given Huns and Celtic's stuttering start to the season its perhaps unfortunate that we didn't play them earlier.

I think we would have (referee allowing) had a decent chance of taking 4 or 6 points if we'd got them early doors, and I still think we will do the The Huns but the Smellies are getting their act together, Griffiths is scoring freely again and the Gunts are always difficult at the PBS.

Here's hoping though.



To be honest, I'm NEVER confident at Swinecastle - even at the 0-7 game, before we scored I thought we may get beaten, although I was feeling a bit cheerier by half time.
